Monica is going to give close to 60% of her liver to her nephew Nick in end stages liver disease. They will both have surgeries this Tuesday, June 9, at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Please pray God's Will be done for them both, nothing more and nothing less! Monica is offering it up mainly for the start of The Lamb Catholic Worker, for the canonization of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin, and for the Catholic Worker Movement, in addition to other intentions.
You can follow progress on caringbridge.org under the "site" "monica siemer." You don't have to sign up, log in, or pay any money, unlike how it appears. We are praying Pope francis' favorite, " Our Lady Undoer of Knots" novena. We especially need the prayers after! The liver parts missing will grow back in both of us if all goes well. As will the half bile ducts in both of us from mine. This process is only 15 years old but there is a 100% survivor rate at this Mayo for the donor.
Also, see the Lamb Catholic Worker article, "Purify the Catholic Worker, Jesus, to be the Diamond of Its Founders," concerning the main reason I did this surgery, besides trying to help save Nick. Please pray!
