I’ve just spoken on the phone with our friend, SuperDave.  He’s given me an update on Lyra’s condition and asked that I share it with the rest of her Passionate poetic friends.

Lyra spent the last couple of days in the hospital, and returned home yesterday - she can surely rest more comfortably there.  It seems that her most recent plight has been some serious swelling in her legs due to carcinomatous pressure on her abdominal veins.  She’s taking several medications, including blood thinners to prevent clotting.  She’s also been recuperating from a recent bout of radiation in her jaw and neck, and still has some back pain from an unrelated injury. The hospital has now begun daily home hospice support, and is giving her every consideration to ease her discomfort,

Lyra is still planning to see some of us for her birthday, in case anyone else can get away.  A few of us will be visiting with her sometime during the week of April 21-27th… The specific time and day aren’t determined yet, as we need to know everyone who’s coming before finalizing.  She’s dearly hanging on to our promise of a Passionate birthday party…  and I’ll be there with bells on.  Anyone else able to join?

Lyra is a wondrous lady.  She has some good days and some not so good ones.  Dave feels she’s hanging on like a trooper.  Throughout her illness, she has drawn much strength from our circle of Passionate Prayers, and she could use more… Let’s gather round for her folks.  Today, tomorrow, and anon...

Dave thanks you sincerely..

(big hugggsssssss) Oh Dave, thank you so much for the update, dearest friend, I was getting worried sick! (sad sigh) I send this healing angel her way to purify her heart and soul with healing and light and love with comfort! (wipes tears)

We all keep praying for her, sweet friend, God Bless You, and God Bless You for being at her side every day and telling us of how she is!



Love,
Noah Eaton

You are in my prayers, Lyra. I wish that I could participate in your birthday celebration. I'm sure it will be a great time for you and all who can be there. I'll be looking forward to the pics!

Thanks, Dave and Nan, for the update.

A Hebrew Prayer For Lyra




O God, in our hearts, we name Lyra who is facing illness and pain. We join our prayers with the prayers of all who love her. Give her renewed comfort and courage.  Guide the hands and hearts of those who are entrusted with her care. May the knowledge of Your love and ours give added hope to her and to her dear ones. May she find even greater strength because our prayers are linked with theirs.

Ba-ruch a-ta, A-do-nai, ro-fei ha-cho-lim.

We praise You, O Lord, the Source of healing and health.

David, know that my prayers and heart hugs are with you both, and may God give you both the strength you need right now.  May it comfort you and the family to know we are all praying for Lyra.

I have never forgotten Chipmunk. I am not a praying man, so all I can do is send positive thought her way.

Big prayers and love heading your way Lyra....PEACE

Here I am
Running after dreams ~
I made it through another lonely night
Thinking of you
I know I should be strong
I just can’t say ~goodbye~(LR)
