WHAT HAPPENED TO ANDY?

What happened?" I'm often asked, "What happened to Andy". My short answer is "Life". Life happened to Andy. He wasn't in an accident. He didn't suddenly "become ill". Andy suffers from some of the silent and unnoticeable diseases that take hold and destory a human life.

Andy's a lifelong diabetic. Feel free to education yourself on the disease and how it attacks every single system in the human body. As an adult he was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. He was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure in January 2011 and suffered a stroke in March 2011 which lead to 4 days in the Hospital. Once educated on strokes, we realized he more than likely suffered a stroke in March of 2010 also.

Due to blocked and clogged arteries, 2 small scrapes on his toes turned into necrotic tissue. May 2011 we went to a vascular surgeon. Andy was already in kidney failure due to his diabetes. The Surgeon needed to do a test to locate the blockages in order to try to save his feet. The test would be damaging to his kidneys and could lead to a lifetime of dialysis. He chose to take the risk and try to save his feet. He had the test. They found the blockages. His kidneys failed. He went on dialysis (no longer requires dialysis). During one session he suffered another stroke then fluid collected in his lungs. This was all the first 15 days of May 2011.

He has been in a healthcare facility 24/7 since May 5, 2011. He's been on and off the ventilator more times than I can recall; in and out of 3 different Intensive Care Units and admitted to 1 Unit 3 different times (VUMC MICU); life-flighted between Hospitals; multiple transports by ambulance; has had multiple IVs and PICC lines, a tunneled catheter and another type of dialysis catheter (none of these at this time); a Foley Cath; a PEG tub and a trache. The necrotic tissue on his feet continues to "grow" or increase. He will lose a minimum of 2 toes.

The strokes left him with dysphasia. He has difficulty swallowing and speaking clearly. They have also affected his vision. He cannot see the TV if it is further than an arm's length away. Between the strokes, going on the ventilator repeatedly and being bed-ridden for over a year he can no longer stand or walk. He has limited use of his hands and fingers. They call it de-conditioning. Some areas are so severe that he suffers from atrophy.

I feel certain I have left something important out and am confident I left out small details. It's an attempt at a summary and conveys the seriousness of his conditions.

God's Grace, prayers, love, light, positive thought and healing are what has gotten him this far; these plus his Faith and his stubborn streak. He is certain that he must walk further on the Path set for him; that there is still work for him to do in this Earthly Realm. Thank you for standing with and beside us so that he may follow his Path. Your continual and continued support is deeply appreciated.

Thank you from the both of us.

Mrs. C(alder, Andy's Mother) was at the ER earlier this week but refused to be admitted. I assume with her COPD. Please add her to your prayers.]

Andy has Pseudomonas Pneumonia and staph in his lungs; Pseudomonas and staph in his blood, urine and feet. He's is short of breath (sob) and in pain. They are trying to keep him calm and comfortable with the use of pain meds through his PEG tube. I'm told his O2 sats are low but I don't know where they're taking them. If it's his fingers then the PAD lowers that number. He's on 3 different IV antibiotics.

Dr. Bannerman asked me to talk to Andy about amputating both feet and about signing a Do Not Resuscitate order. Andy wants to keep his feet and believes if it's God's will for him to cross then no effort on part of man will keep him here, when it's his ti...me he'll pass. He wants man to continue to work at keeping him here until God does call him.

Andy is "a very sick man". I've been told over and over by family, friends and medical professionals that it'll be an infection that takes him. He told me last weekend this was coming and that it might be the "last round".

Please pray. Pray for Andy to find clarity, peace and understanding (whatever that may mean or bring). Pray that God's will be done.

OBITUARY: HFr. VEDA RETOR SATANA, h.c. (FR. ANDREW H. CALDER, II)

by GHFr. Pneuma Asteros Bethlehem
*+Michael W. Humphrey, OAB
Supreme Magus & President
Order Of The Star Of Bethlehem (OAB)

On behalf of the Order of The Star of Bethlehem, we wish to extend our condolences on the loss of our very much beloved Frater Veda Retor Satanas, h.c., OAB, better known as Father Andrew Calder, Independent Catholic (& former Episcopal) Priest and Exorcist to everyone who knew, worked with, and loved him. Father Calder was a well known lecturer in the fields of the Paranormal and on the demonic. He is best known as the priest and exorcist in the television series, Paranormal State (of the Paranormal Research Society) in the episodes, "The Devil in Syracuse", and "I Am Six". Father Calder was a noble soul and a spiritual warrior as well as a good friend. He was a founding member of the Georgia Paranormal Society and an honorary member of The Order of The Star of Bethlehem. He will be greatly missed.

On Thr., Sep. 20th, 2012 at c. 14:20 CT, Father Andrew Calder crossed peacefully into the kingdom of heaven while sleeping. We especially remember those who survive him, including his dearest fiance (Evie Haile of Lebanon, TN); as well as his mother (Willene Brooks Calder of East Dublin, GA); a son (Justin Calder of Dublin, GA); a daughter, (Haleigh Foster of Macon, GA); a sister (Carolyn E. Howell of East Dublin, GA); a grand son (Grey Calder); two neices (Samantha denham and Christy Cain); two nephews (Harry Shinolster Jr., and Steven Howell); and other members of family. Andy was (& remains) a noble soul who was committed to the work of God as a priest and a capable warrior dedicated to the service of his fellow humankind. We shall miss him deeply, but know that we shall see him again on the other side when our turn to cross over comes. Per Andy's wishes, there will be no formal funeral or memorial services. Members of The Order of The Star of Bethlehem and local Stellar Temples, OAB conducted private meditations in memorial vigils the weekend of Fri. Sep. 21st, Sat. Sep. 22nd, and Sun. Sep. 23rd from 9:00 PM ET until 9:30 PM ET individually in his honor.

We pray that the hand of the Lord Almighty be upon each of you who knew and cared for/about Fr. Andrew Calder and his work. As it is written in the Word of God, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." [Mat. 5-7]. We commit his soul to God who gave it, and give thanks for the opportunity to share in his friendship all these many years. Should we be able to assist any of you, please do not hesitate to contact me personally. Until I hear from you, I shall remain most sincerely,
