In your position, I would have made the same call.

Prayers out, good luck.

I hope your little guy gets better.
"The real problem was being able to stick it out, to sit in an office under the orders of a wee man in a dark gray suit and look out of the window and recall the bush country, the waving palms, the smell of sweat and cordite, the grunts of the men hauling jeeps over the river crossings, the copper-tasting fears just before the attack, and the wild, cruel joy of being alive afterward. To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."

Prayers brother. Trust that you made the best choice that you could for your son. It’s never an easy spot to be in.

You are doing what you think his best for him. That's all any of us can do. The rest is in God's hands. I'll pray for your son, and also for you and your wife.

Lord, your Word speaks promises of healing and restoration and I thank you for the miracles you still perform today. Today I claim those promises over my friend. I believe in the healing power of faith and prayer and I ask you to begin your mighty work in the life of my friend. Please reach down and surround my friend with supernatural peace and strength and give him the faith to believe that all things are possible for you. Protect him from Satan's lies and discouragement and let his miraculous healing begin. Amen.

Thumbs up

Please do not feel you have ruined anyone's anything with a call to rally around you and your precious family.

Each and every one here is a member of humanity with a shared bond - and we all respect the love of family.

Your innocent child is one who will receive the unconditional benefit of every positive thought and every powerful prayer.

THANK YOU for allowing us to share your load.
I cannot empathize with a slackard, a shirker, and a coward. I would probably kick your ass as well, if one of the other members didn't beat me to it.
Happy New Year Message from TR- 1/1/04
