need prayers for a friend....

Who would have ever thought that 3yrs ago, while I am just starting my photography career seriously. I join a photography website in hopes my work will sell. That this woman who happened to comment on my work and started giving me tips would end up helping thru the years in my photography. Surely not I.

She has been such a true and real friend, which is so hard to find now a days. She is the one who has helped me improve and progress. I cant put into words how much her friendship means to me, and I am sure anyone else who’s path has crossed with her, feels the same way.

She is an angel in disguise, willing and having helped everyone that she has come to meet. Im sure there are so many people that can probably tell the same story as myself. Not to mention an awesome photographer herself, and a Master in Photoshop (best I have ever seen).

Friday she started bleeding internally, of course she had to go straight to the hospital immediately. After losing 3 pints of blood, and dozens of tests, they finally found the problem this morning. She has a hole in her colon along w/ a blockage. Today she had to have emergency surgery to try to fix this problem.

So Im asking that anyone and everyone that reads this, and a lot will probably know her, since we all at one time were on the same photography site.

Her name….Marianne Venegoni

So along w/ those of us who had the honor of hanging out w/ her just at the beginning of this month, need help in more prayers sent her way, so this problem can be fixed, and she can get back to a halfass normal life again.

It breaks my heart a person like Marianne has to go thru this, it just isnt fair. Why does it always seem the good ones always have to go thru such terrible things. I dont think I will ever understand that.

Im not a real religious guy, yes I do believe in God, but…I dont believe in churches. I know I have asked for the strength for her to pull thru this, and I’m asking others to help me out.

For those that do, I’d like to thank you now. She needs all the prayers she can get right now.

It’s really hard especially when she is hundreds of miles from me and the others. If I could get away with it, I’d head down there. So it isnt like I can just go hang out at the hospital. Sometimes this internet is a good thing..but on the other side of the coin, it’s frustrating as well.

So once again, to those that do help us out in sending some serious well wishes…..I cant thank you enough, my words wont ever express what your help really means to me. All I can say…is …thank you.
