Mary Kay Bonfante : Please pray for my uncle. I'm not giving his name for privacy reasons (even though it's unlikely that people we know would go on FanStory), but he's my only surviving uncle, and very dear to me. He has small blood clots in his lung, and is in the hospital in serious condition.
They live in another state, so the only thing I can do is pray, and that's exactly what I'm asking my friends here to do! Please pray for him! He and my aunt have been together for over 50 years. They love each other and really need each other. Thank you very, very much.

Mary Kay Bonfante : Again, I am here, asking prayers from my friends (and anyone else who wants to be a friend).

Yesterday my mother, Kay, called Life Alert and the paramedics took her to the hospital for a personal issue requiring attention. While she was there, they tested her for Covid-19, and to her shock and dismay (and mine), the result was positive.

Just over a week ago, she received a negative test result from the Covid-19 community testing they ran in her building. She has no clear Coronavirus symptoms, with the exception of very mild pneumonia that just showed up on a CT scan (which was revealed accidentally, as the CT scan was abdominal) and this was all completely unexpected.

My Mom is 83 and mostly confined to her bed, with severe pain and immobility brought on by age-related spinal deformities.

I am praying that this virus will not take hold of her, because she is at great risk. The doctors prescribed some medications, but she will have to check with her personal physician to find out which ones she can tolerate.

Kindly remember her in your prayers! I thank you, with all my heart.
June 10, 2020 at 5:05AM
    AJ McCall: We're praying for you!
    June 10, 2020 at 11:32AM
    Drew Delaney: Will be praying for her and you!

    juliaSjames: Prayers ascending. Sending positive thoughts and much love. Thank God she was tested in hospital. I believe all will be well. New treatments are emerging as understanding of this virus grows.

    June 12, 2020 at 3:20PM
    Mary Kay Bonfante : Thank you so much, juliaSjames, for your prayers and encouragement. Mom had a close call this week with atrial fibrillation, but I don't think it had anything to do with Coronavirus. So far, she hasn't developed major symptoms of the disease, for which I am truly grateful! - Mary Kay xoxo

Mary Kay Bonfante : Hi, my friends. I would like to request prayer for my husband Jorge. He went to the hospital on Thursday after having some strange symptoms -- chills, hypothermia, vomiting and weakness. He has stomach ulcers and we think he was throwing up some blood, but the blood tests didn't show anemia, which the doctors said is very unusual. He did have a high white blood cell count, and the slight appearance of pneumonia on his CT scan. They're giving him antibiotics. They tested him for Covid-19, which came back negative -- it didn't surprise me, because both of us had it in March and are long past the recovery and quarantine phase (even though we still observe the same social distancing as others).
He has had strange episodes before, where extreme body temperature changes and chills precede the vomiting or regurgitation, but usually it's fever, not hypothermia. He was extremely weak this time, also.
Sorry to be so graphic. He's doing much better, but it's hard to be home without him. I hope the doctors can figure out why these episodes keep happening. It's the 4th time he's gone to the hospital for such problems, in the past 9 years, but he hasn't gone every time (it's not always severe).
I would appreciate your prayers for us very much!
May 16, 2020 at 5:50PM
    Irish Rain: I hope he is well and back home with you soon. God bless you both.
    May 16, 2020 at 8:42PM

    Joan E.: Lyenochka alerted me to your trials and tribulations in her current, prayerful poem. I will certainly keep you and your husband in my thoughts. I hope the doctors can figure out what has been causing these recurring episodes. Warm regards- Joan

    Mary Kay Bonfante : Thank you to all who have prayed and cared. This forum doesn't have a space for individual replies, but I appreciate all of your kind comments, and especially Iyenochka's prayer poem, recently posted. May God bless you all. - Mary Kay xoxoxoxo

    Mary Kay Bonfante : I accidentally Liked my own comment twice -- first, thinking I was saving it, and then hoping to unlike it. As Homer Simpson would say, "D'OH!"
    May 18, 2020 at 4:44AM
    Mary Kay Bonfante : I'm very joyful to report that Jorge came home today and is busting my chops with his crazy jokes, as much as ever ;-)
    But that's how we like it! I give the glory to God for His answers to our prayers, and for all His goodness! Amen.
    May 18, 2020 at 7:50PM
    pharp: You and Jorge continue to be in my prayers. Remain strong my friend.
    May 19, 2020 at 1:36PM
    Minglement: Again so sorry, Mary Kay, but I just read he came home today, Praise the Lord! Still keeping you both in my prayers and praying for answers. God bless you both! Love ya'.
    May 20, 2020 at 5:20AM
    Mary Kay Bonfante : Thank you so much for your prayers and kind comments, Portia and Marcia, and anyone else who has stopped by. May God bless you, dear friends.
