Thank God!

Baby Torres is apparently past the critical stage and now has a great chance of surviving outside the womb. Now they are going to try to make it to 32 weeks (8 more weeks) before delivering the baby girl. Of course, it will depend on how her mother's cancer spreads.

Keep praying for them, please. It's still so touch and go...

To read more or contriubute if you can, go to the Susan Torres Fund on line.


  • Hi Sparki. I stumbled across your blog while reading comments on Amy's blog and was thrilled to find a fellow Lincoln-ite who blogs! I'm sure there are others, of course. But still...a rare treat on a super hot Friday! God bless!

  • JEFF!!!

    I didn't know you were out there, either. What parish
    are you in?

  • Well, look who's got comments back and a new template. Nice. And I hope that baby makes it.

  • I attend St. John the Apostle here in Lincoln. :)

  • We've visited St. John's a few times. We're at St. Mary's downtown, but we do go to St. Teresa's on occasion -- well, when we're just a little too late to go to 9:30 Mass at St. Mary's, we head over to St. Teresa's for 10:00!

    I want to go to Mass at Martyrs', though -- haven't yet seen their new sanctuary.

  • NAM is beautifully done...I was finally able to go a few months ago when the architecht that designed NAM (who also designed our renovation) took us on a tour of the church. If you haven't been to St. John's since Easter, you really ought to come looks SOOOOO much better than before.

    I try to go to St. Mary's a few times a week over noon Mass, depending upon my meeting schedule. I haven't made it though since Fr. Witt was reassigned. We've done an Engaged Encounter weekend with Fr. Dietrich though...he's a wonderful priest.

  • Funny, I go to noon Mass at St. Mary's at least once a week. And yes, Fr. Dietrich is a wonderful priest. So is Fr. Witt. Actually, I have yet to meet a priest in this Diocese who didn't strike me as a really great guy.

    Can't wait to see NAM. And it's been a while since we've been to St. John's, so we will have to do that sometime.
