The HAUNTING of Merci Hospital (Some patients never leave…)


No one expects to visit a hospital for a non-threatening injury only to never leave again. Merci Hospital, one of the oldest in the county, has served countless patients for practically decades. However, something is now very odd about the place as some who are admitted report seeing things that are not there and others never get to talk about it.

Catherine Lucene is fairly new at Merci, a highly regarded nurse whose reputation for excellence and compassion in healthcare precedes her. She gradually becomes aware of the inexplicably sinister happenings at the hospital, but the underlying cause of it all evades her. Will Catherine’s determination to uncover the truth help preserve the lives of those not yet lost, including her own, or will her curiosity of the “unknown” propel her into a horrifying state-of-being she never knew existed?

Making The Most Out of Your Life

When someone you’ve known for a long time passes away, you tend to do some re-evaluating about your life and you realize more than ever your own mortality. A friend of mine and my family’s died yesterday after a year-long battle with cancer. She was only fifty-years-old and left two young children to be raised by their father. It’s a sad situation and one that weighs on me because I wish things could have turned out differently for them — for her to have beaten that terrible disease and be here to watch her two sons grow up. However, I also understand that dying is a part of life and we must all experience it some day in some way.

Reflecting on our friend’s passing, I thought about how she lived life and had a lot of fun times with her family and how I and everyone else should make sure we spend as much quality time as possible with those we love. Make even more memories with our kids whether they’re small or grown. Take a load of photos. Smile and laugh more. Have fun! Get out of the house more often and do things together with those we love for some day, the opportunity will be gone. At least when the time comes, we would be satisfied knowing we had wonderful times together which will be reflected upon for many years to come. Don’t think that in order to do that, you need money for expensive vacations and special paid events. Sometimes, a casual walk together every day or a few times a week is good; going window shopping or browsing through the Mall; going out for coffee and/donuts – that sort of thing doesn’t cost much; making it a point to regularly watch your kids sporting or other extra-curricular activities; going to community events that are free of charge; sitting on the back porch in the evenings watching the sunset and talking about your day (what a wonderful thing to do!); even having “movie night” each week at the cinema or at home. There are endless possibilities.

I am going to get out more with my kids and husband, and enjoy life right along with them. We’ve made many awesome memories in the past, but we can make even more. The cares of this life every so often must be put on hold or placed on the back burner because our loved ones matter so much more. I invite you to re-evaluate your own life and see where improvements can be made; where more time can be taken out for your family, and what fun things you can do together from time to time. When it’s all said and done, each of us wants to know that we’ve done our very best in the lives of those we hold dear.

Today’s Wisdom Key

Your sincere acts of kindness always return to you someday in some way. Those who take advantage of your kind heart only stagnate themselves and many times make their own dreams an impossibility instead of a reality. Your kindness is not without reward and their evil is not without deserved consequence. Continue to live well and do well in spite of those who do not mean you well.
