Good News!

Patrick was released from hospital this evening, with brace and cane and orders not to leave the house for two days minimum. He will have a long recovery. He remains heavily medicated to relieve intense pain. In spite of these difficulties, Patrick's recovery has been amazing, no doubt helped in great part by the workings and prayers of many Pagans. Many of us appreciate his work on our behalf and many others simply love his Irish charm. If ever there was a man with the gift of Blarney, that man is Patrick.

Patrick will be recovering at home for at least two months. To those who've asked about sending flowers, yes, he'd love flowers. He's heartened by your cards. He's looking forward to reading email that's been sent to getwellpatrick@cherryhillseminary.org. He welcomes cards and letters, prayers and workings, all good wishes. For obvious reasons, he will be unable to accommodate every request from those many who are accustomed to seeking Patrick's help. He needs to focus on his own healing. This restriction in his activities is probably the most frustrating part of this whole situation, as far as Patrick is concerned.

Barbara has been with him every day for the last two weeks, through scary times. Care came from Ohio last Sunday to help. They could use some caring attention as well.

Patrick's home and on the road to full recovery. Praise be, Lady, praise be!

I sent some healing. Glad to hear that he is on the mend!

What great news. Maybe we should plant a tree to celebrate ;-)

Blessed be!!!

That is a wonderful idea, Andrea. I just bought a brand new beautiful white rose bush that I had intended to plant this evening when the sun starts to set.

I think I will do just that and name it 'Patrick'.

I am so glad that he is doing well. I have kept a 'Guardian Angel' candle lit for him since reading about him being ill.

Thank you for the update.

Have a great week.

So glad to hear it. I love this man. His work is really just astonishing. He came out to San Diego for a weekend workshop on chaplaincy a couple of years ago. Just that one weekend was so challenging, and we were only role playing!

I'll be sure to send him a get well note. It's very nice of Cherry Hill to host that special address for him.

Hi Macha, are you happy for MetaPagan (Pagan blog aggregator I co-run) to link to your blog-posts? Not all of them, just the ones that might be of interest to other Pagans. The feed looks like this.
