06/23/22 - I had my heart catheterization. Good news no blockage was found. The doctors drained more than a liter of fluid from my pleural area. The bad news is that the doctors said I have congestive heart failure. I appreciate your prayers as I continue healing.

"I was admitted to the hospital on last Tuesday. Monday, June 20 I’m scheduled for a heart catheterization. Please continue prayers".

06/11/22 - I had another CT Scan the growth in my pleural caused by collagenous colitis has reduced in size by almost half. So I’m progressing. Another round of antibiotics will start again. I’m feeling much better and have gained some weight. All positive steps forward. I appreciate your prayers. They are definitely helping.

Brother Al Ignatonis.

Received from Al today.

My condition may continue for some time and other than having A-Fib I was diagnosed with heart failure. The wall of my heart has hardened and is not pumping as it should. Current thinking is that fibroids are in the heart's wall that has resulted from my plasmacytoma, a form of cancer in bone marrow and soft tissue. As a result, I am limited on energy. More tests and doctor's visits are scheduled. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.

Harold "Hal" Crane

Hal is a brother knight, who is 96 years old. He hasn't been to meetings recently, but when he attended, he is the gentleman in a wheel chair. Hal's grandson is Jamieson Cannata, a brother knight, also.

Hal's daughter is Elena Cannata, who sings in the choir at 10:45 mass. Hal has often been in the back pew on the right side.

Hal is in kidney failure and is in his last days, per the doctors, about a week or so to live. Elena has requested prayers from the knights asking for us to "pray for a peaceful and holy passing for Hal, in God's time".

Tina Kroeger (Jeff Kroeger, sister-in-law)

Please pray for my sister-in-law Tina (my brother's wife). They were vacationing in Florida when she became ill, taken to the hospital. Now she is in ICU with liver massive bleeding, after surgery they put her in an induced coma. After 48 hours, her lungs collapsed, and vitals all dropped and now has pneumonia. The doc says she may not be able to fight it off with the liver issue.
Thank you.

I received an email from James Borzak with a prayer request.

James spent 5 days (May 12-17) in the hospital and had to return May 21 due to multiple ailments. In addition to pneumonia, he was diagnosed with various gastrointestinal; lung; and fatigue issues.

James is resting well at home and requests our prayers of which he can be reassured.
Let us pray for a complete and speedy recovery.
