UPDATES and recent hospital photos of Abe on their daughter's blog. Click here.
Patty and Abe Lincoln

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! But for everyone, it isn't a happy day, not really. You see, one of our fellow bloggers from Ohio is in the hospital with a collapsed lung. Abe Lincoln is spending his Thanksgiving holiday in the hospital! His lung had collapsed back in 1981 and then again a few days ago. If it happens once, there's a 50% chance of it happening again. If it happens a second time, then the recurrence of it happening yet another time is 80%! He had a new lung procedure, a very painful procedure, yesterday that is supposed to kind of patch the bad or weak spots in the lung, and he seems to be doing much better now. Their daughter has some pics of Abe posted on her blog with a more-detailed explaination of his lung problem.

I'm sure the family would appreciate all the prayers they can get at this time. So please add his name to your prayer list, and pass it on so that he'll have a mutitude of people praying for him. Prayer does work, we all know that, so please pray and remember him and his family in your daily prayers and also your Thanksgiving Day prayers today.

Some of you may already frequent his blog or his wife's blog. If you haven't, you need to, as they have theeeee best blogs! Patty and Abe celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary this past July! I have met some wonderful people through blogging, and this couple is on the top of my list! To know them is to love them!

Well, not the best of Thanksgivings for sure. Lots of prayers headed out, so glad they have new procedures.
I am so sorry about your Grandkitty, I know it is hard. Our Elvira passed away Monday and while I knew it was coming it was still hard.
Best to you

I am somewhat familiar with Abe, having seen comments of his on other blogs and it just saddened me to hear that he's in the hospital! I do hope and pray that this new procedure he's had done will be successful. My youngest brother experienced a collapsed lung about 7 years ago and I'll never forget how much he suffered. Hopefully it will never happen to him again!! xoxo

Thank you for telling us about this situation. I have read their blogs on occasion but did not know that Abe was in the hospital. It's good to get the word out so that we all can be praying for him.

So sorry to hear that dear Punky is gone. I lost two of my cats within a few weeks of each other back a few years ago and it was so hard. I hope he knows that he gave them wonderful lives that they may not have gotten with someone else. I hope when the time is right he will adopt two more to love and take care of for many years! Tell him that we all care! xoxo

Hi Nancy. I could have sworn that I had already commented on this post. I know I read it! I must have gotten distracted before I could comment. I went over and visited Abe's blog. He is out of the hospital now and back to posting.
Thanks for the visits and e-mails.
Have a great week.

Dear Nancy ~~ A lovely post about Abe and Patty. They are a wonderful couple and I have been praying for him to get well. You are so kind as
I know you are so busy yourself. You have a kind and generous heart.
Glad you got some chuckles from my jokes. Sorry it is cold there but if it doesn't last too long, that's good. You take good care of you, my friend. Please don't bother to reply to this. There is no need. Love you too, Merle.
