    Prayer request from our friend 99th Monkey

    John has been very ill the past ten days with a serious infection. In and out of hospital, and now back in again. He’s asking for prayers and good thoughts. He says it’s very serious, and if treatment doesn’t work this time, he will have to endure a third open heart surgery. The last one of those was very hard on him physically.

    I will pass on any messages.

      13. Best wishes. I need more friends getting better lives. I hope you lead the way!

      Still thinking about a friend I just found out passed away on Wednesday this week who I thought was getting better.  Too many bad stories for many people I know I think frustrate all of our lives too.  Hoping times change soon!

      99th monkey, please get better soon and help continue to build and grow our great family here!

      17. Hear my plea for John, 99th Monkey

      I know what it is like to be sick as heck and you do not know what to do, or what can be done for you.

      May you be spared more pain, dear friend, for you ARE one strong friend.  I would like for you to be able to post again, and share your wisdom. Your friends love you.

      20. I saw his FB page..

      I think he will be on antibiotics for some time to help kill off the infection. When I heard he finished a 10 day treatment, and I asked him if he was going to stay on antibiotics. He said “no”, and was supposed to have a followup. I guess the regimen didn’t work. Systemic infection is nasty stuff, and I know this from experience dealing with my mom’s staph infection from a devitated septum that she broke a long time ago and got it fixed. She was on antibiotics for 3 months or more. This was a long time ago.

      Hopefully John will come out of this stronger than ever. We need him!

      31. This is terrible news

      My thoughts are with our 99thmonkey.

      He’s such a wonderful and well informed, kind man.

      It was just a week or so ago he told me he was out of the hospital. This suck

      Good vibes, my friend

      32. I'm sending his name to the nuns at Sravasti Abbey,

      a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in eastern Washington State, with the request that they pray to Medicine Buddha on his behalf.

      For more info:



      EDIT: I received this prompt response from Sravasti Abbey:

      Dear Sheila
      Thank you for your kind and generous offering. We will join you in making prayers and dedications for John. May he be receiving the best medical available and may the infection be address and eliminated swiftly. May John have a steady and calm mind as he goes thru the various treatments that are likely very uncomfortable and unsettling and may he be surrounded by people who can manage a calm mind and heart.
      All the best
