JAN BILLIAS had her heart cath today...Thursday the 5th
Here is her report.
"The doctor thinks that the function is slightly improved and is encouraged that maybe it will get stronger. We will discuss this more when I see him in 4 weeks. There is a possibility that I can then remove this defibrillator and not need to have one implanted. Time will tell.
It's been a long day."

Athena was discharged Friday afternoon after being diagnosed with stomach ulcers.
Jan is scheduled for another heart catherization in the near future to. determine why her heart has gotten weaker.

Reported by Jan Billias, Nu Alpha., regarding her granddaughter:
Athena was hospitalized t his morning. She has suffered for 3 or 4 days with severe abdominal pain and vomiting. She was discharged from the ER yesterday morning after hours of lab work and a CT scan, which revealed nothing. She returned this a.m. worse than ever, and they finally did an ultra sound and saw what they believe is a large gall stone which obstructs her common
bile duct. She is having a nuclear study at 1:00 today and will be consulted by a gastroenterologist and/or a surgeon.
Please keep us in your prayers. The news for my immediate future was not good yesterday, but we will speak of that another day.
One day at a time, sweet Jesus.

Texas - Prayers are requested for John Owens: JOHN HAS A 60% blockage of the artery going to his left kidney. He has to drink lots of decaf drinks and water for 2 days, then more blood work. After 2 weeks they will see about putting a stint in the artery to open it up. The first concern was cancer or dialysis, so a stint can be a relief.

Every major faith has a call to prayer, whether it is the ululating melody of the Adhan being called out by a muezzin from the mosque five times a day, the pealing of bells from church towers, the sharp sound of the Jewish shofar or the exotic timbre of gongs at Hindu and Buddhist Temples. These calls encourage their believers to set aside the stress and trials of daily life and focus on what can help lift them and encourage them to be their best self. I encourage you to take time this week to set aside the worries of daily life and using whatever “call to prayer” you chose to focus on what can uplift you.

Yesterday, Eldon was terribly hateful, not physically, but mentally. I pray this isn’t starting a new stage with his Alzheimer’s because it has always been fairly peaceful.I see him several (at least four or five) times a week. Our son saw him Saturday and finally realizes how bad he is, he thought I was exaggerating. His body is really strong, but his mind is almost gone. If you have any extra prayers, please pray for little one for me, as it is really hard seeing him this way so often. He is in really good care, so I don’t have to worry about that.
Margaret Shook, Chi Epsilon, has an update on Walt and is requesting prayers for Walt. He was able to have chemo even though his blood levels were not good. His platelets were 77 and they want it to be at least 100. Since being on steroids he has developed steroid diabetes and is now on insulin. His blood pressure was 81 over 51, so they gave him saline which did make it improve. He has discontinued his blood pressure meds for the time being. His main problem seems to be extreme fatigue and shortness of breath. They are asking for prayers that the effects of the chemo will lessen and he will be feeling better soon. Thank you for your continued prayers for Walt and Margaret.
