A Call for Prayers and Well-Wishes...

If anyone reading this has occasioned to visit The Rott, you've likely run across a post-or-two by LC Brendan.

Brendan is Good Troop - Aussie by birth and geography - who keeps a sharp eye out to make sure that honorable conduct in uniform does not go unnoticed.

He's a real Stand Up Guy with his act together and his priorities in order - High Speed, Low Drag.

...and right now, he needs your prayers.

Brendan's wonderful and beloved wife is in the hospital, yesterday diagnosed with DVT (blood clots) in her leg and an (as yet) unspecified pelvic mass.

He's grinding himself down trying to be strong for her through this - and he needs our help.

Now, I haven't been able to raise him since he signed-off last night, and I don't have a direct e-mail address to him, but if you want to leave a note here (I'll pass them along as I can) , at The Rott, or over at his own Aussie Blog, I'm certain he could use your prayers and support.

He is absolutely One Of Ours, so send him what you've got - from that place we all still dream about.

There, but for the grace of God...

  1. Prayers again for Brendan and his wife.


  2. Please relay my prayers to Brendan and his wife. I used to be a vascular tech a long time ago, and I know this will be a hard road for both of them. Through God all things are possible.

  3. Our prayers and hopes that his wife make a full recovery. We will keep you in our thoughts here Brendan

    God Bless

  4. I....dammit, something in my eye....

    Thank you..from both of us.

  5. Oh, well. Better late than never, I guess. Well-wishes from the snow-swept wilderlands of KY.

  6. Please pass my best wishes for a speedy recovery along to Brendan's wife and Brendan.

  7. Brendan,

    May God be with you and your Wife during this difficult time.


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
