A DIFFERENT SPIRIT by JOEL & VICTORIA OSTEEN

CUT & PASTE FROM JOEL AND VICTORIA OSTEEN'S DAILY E-MAIL DEVOTIONAL OCTOBER 30, 2014

Every Sunday I watch Joel on TV as he preaches from Lakewood Church in Houston, TX. What a powerful wonderful message he always has...always uplifting my spirit. Every single time, I feel so good from hearing him. He definitely has God's anointing.

I want to share his and Victoria's message today because it really spoke to me relating to myself and the thousands of mesh injured patients worldwide. So many are so bitter and so angry and so disenfranchised. Many patients are mean to other mesh injured patients.

I call today for "A DIFFERENT SPIRIT" among us. Stop the insanity of attacking each other online. There is ZERO reason to be mean to each other. Please be civilized and kind to those who suffer physically every single day. A word of kindness goes a long way towards a better day. Unkind words leave stains on people's hearts and souls.

Please follow God faithfully as the scripture below says...."Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!"

God bless you wherever you are! Lana

"TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it.”
(Numbers 14:24, NASB)



TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

One time in scripture, Moses sent 12 men to spy out the Promised Land. The people of Israel were camped right next door and excited about possessing the land. But after 40 days, ten of the men came back with a negative report. They said, “Moses, there are giants in the land, and we’ll never defeat them.” That negative report spread throughout the rest of the camp, and the people began to murmur and complain.
But one of the spies named Caleb said, “Moses, we are well able to defeat these people. Let us go up at once and take the land!”
It’s interesting that they all saw the same land, the same circumstances, yet they had totally different views. How could their reports be so opposite? Here’s how: Caleb had a different spirit. He saw things with a different perspective. Others were focused on the giants, but Caleb was focused on his God. The people who complained never actually made it into the Promised Land, but Caleb did. He accompanied a new generation that chose the blessing of God.
Today, you can choose to have a different spirit. Don’t listen to what everyone else says; listen to what God says. Choose to believe His Word, choose to obey Him, and He will lead you into your promised land!


A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, today I choose to tune out the negative voices of the world. I choose to trust in You even when no one else around me will. I thank You for the good things You are doing in my life and trust that You will fulfill every promise You’ve made to me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

THE UGLY TRUTH...DR. G. WILLY DAVILA, CLEVELAND CLINIC WESTON, IS A LIAR!

Dr. G. Willy Davila, the Johnny Appleseed of Synthetic Surgical Mesh, has traveled the world over spreading the horror of mesh to women worldwide. His name is to be reviled. There is a special place in hell for humans(actually inhumans) like him.

A couple of weeks ago, I discovered he was paid $75,000.00 (2 separate contracts) as a preceptor (training other surgeons to mutilate women with mesh) by Ethicon, Inc /Johnson & Johnson...before I ever had mesh implanted in me in 2001 and before I ever went to see him the first time in 2002.

I emphatically trusted him with my own medical treatments for 7 years. The entire time he lied to me. I am devastated to know how he used me as a guinea pig for all those years, repeated surgeries and repeated in-office trimmings INSIDE MY BLADDER! Let's manage your "erosion" conservatively (now called "exposure" as if a new name would make the pain and agony of mesh any less) he would say.

"Other surgeons are not as skilled as me is the reason there are complications with mesh" he would say. I believed him! I just want to vomit thinking about it.

And then he spied on the work of Truth in Medicine, all the while reporting back to the mesh companies. You talk about despicable, he's despicable. Spread the word about this disgusting man to everyone you know. He still travels the world "training" other surgeons to mutilate women with mesh.

Tell everyone you know his name, Dr. G. WILLY DAVILA. Don't let him be the Johnny Appleseed of Mesh in your town or in your country. Let's expose him worldwide for the industry hack he is! Him and Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson.

You probably know one in your country...write me at lana@lanakeeton.com and I will help you to expose them, too.

NO GOVERNMENT, NO PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL SOCIETY, NO DEVICE COMPANY, NO LAWS IN ANY COUNTRY ARE PROTECTING US WOMEN (OR MEN EITHER)FROM SURGICAL MESH MISUSE AND ABUSE!

WE HAVE TO SHOUT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS THE TRUTH OF THE SYSTEMATIC MUTILATION OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE FACILITATED BY OUR HEALTH SYSTEMS!!

NAME THE JOHNNY APPLESEEDS OF MESH!! GET THEIR MEDICAL LICENSES REVOKED. SHAME THEM FOR THEIR ATROCITIES.

LET'S GO...WE ARE WOMEN, HEAR US ROAR!

ONE MORE TIME.....ROOOAAARRR!@!# AS LOUD AS YOU CAN!!!

LANA C. KEETON, Your fellow mesh injured patient, VICTOR IN THE WAR AGAINST MESH!!

D.C. CIRCUIT COURT REVERSES FDA REVOCATION OF REGEN MESH KNEE IMPLANT

While the FDA has been very slow in tackling the major issue of Transvaginal Mesh for pelvic organ prolapse and bladder suspension, I am very pleased they are doing it by the book!! Otherwise, the efforts of thousands and thousands of injured patients might be reversed on appeal as the REGEN MESH KNEE IMPLANT has by the D.C. Circuit Court. See below...

DC Circuit Knocks FDA’s Backtrack On Knee Implant Approval
By David Siegel Law360, New York, September 26, 2014

"The D.C. Circuit ruled Friday that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration didn’t follow the proper procedure to revoke marketing clearance for a knee implant more than two years after it had initially granted it, finding the agency’s inherent authority cannot trump Congress’s rules for reclassifying medical devices.

In a split 2-1 ruling, the appeals panel reversed a lower court decision granting summary judgment in favor of the FDA, finding the agency acted improperly in reversing its prior approval of the Collagen Scaffold, a surgical mesh knee implant."

As for myself, although I highly disagree with the FDA's 510(k) PreMarket Notification Clearance process, have always sought to get mesh off the market through the existing FDA regulatory authority. Better to use the road most traveled than to try to build new roads.

SEPTEMBER 8, 2011....3 YEARS AND COUNTING and TRANSVAGINAL MESH IS STILL ON THE MARKET!

September 8, 2011...Day One!

FDA ObGyn Advisory Panel Meeting on Synthetic Surgical Mesh implanted in the pelvis of women. Transvaginal mesh it is now called...no matter where placed, no matter the brand. All lumped into one...

Guess that's okay in a sense because ALL of them cause immeasurable harm.

When will the FDA take action to stop the harm to millions of mesh injured patients, MEN AND WOMEN ALIKE?

The medical device companies have a seemingly unending amount of time to continue the harm while Patients NEVER get a second chance. Once the mesh is in, it is permanent.

So while the mesh makers get a do over, Patients become permanently disabled pelvic cripples.

An FDA warning October 2008.

Another more serious FDA warning July 13, 2011.

The FDA mandates 522 studies to 33 companies for 99 mesh products January 2012.

The FDA puts forth the possiblity of upclassifying mesh kits manufactured for pelvic organ prolapse May 2014. Comments are accepted through July 2014.

September 8, 2014...patients are still harmed every single day while mesh companies still getting a do over.

What really needs a do over is the FDA's 510(k) Premarket Notification clearance process which allowed these products ever to be sold in the first place.

Write your Congressman. Write the FDA. Write your State authorities.

LET'S GET SYNTHETIC SURGICAL MESH OFF THE MARKET...PERMANENTLY!

NO MORE DO OVERS!

A CALL FOR PRAYER FOR ALL MESH INJURED PATIENTS

Our fellow men and women working in medical device companies are not protecting the men and women they profess to heal and cure.

The FDA seems powerless.

The attorneys are doing their best to raise the alarm and help in the way they are trained.

The courts are only able to take action based on our laws.

Doctors are picking up scalpels and implanting synthetic surgicl mesh in hundreds of thousands of humans around the world every single day. Why? To prevent recurrence of hernia, make women dry or make sure they are anatomically correct.

I do not know one single person who went to a doctor or surgeon and told them they wanted to be anatomically correct.

I do not know one woman or man (yes they implant bladder slings in men now) who went to a doctor or surgeon and told them, please make me dry even if I become a pelvic cripple, am disabled, will never be able to have sex again, will lose my job, my income and my home.

I do not know one single person with a hernia who ever went to a doctor or surgeon and said, it is very important never to have a hernia recurrence even if it makes me sterile, I lose one or both of my testicles or live in chronic pain.

Nope. Never met a single one.

Please pray doctors become empowered to protect the men and women they intend to heal.

Please pray these procedures are no longer touted as the "gold standard".

Please pray for common sense like in the old days when doctors and surgeons worked to prevent foreign bodies in humans, not to put them in.

JO & ALLEN HUSKEY WIN $3.27 MILLION! DEFEAT THE ETHICON, J&J GIANT!

“Huskey v. Ethicon Inc.”… $3.27 million verdict for Plaintiff’s Jo and Allen Huskey!

The verdict is substantial for the Huskeys, and fair, even to Ethicon. Ethicon will not be getting the award reduced on appeal because it is a fair amount.

What is not fair is that Jo and Allen Huskey will live the rest of their lives together (hopefully) but will never be able to be intimate again. Disgraceful that a company profits from stealing this couple’s intimacy, a God given joy.

And that Jo Huskey will no longer be able to participate in her own life as the productive member of society she once was. Mesh is a horrific life sentence that no one who does not have mesh implanted will ever be able to understand. The pain is excruciating and unrelenting. No human should ever have to suffer like Jo Huskey is suffering.

This is a real win for other cases pending in In RE: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 02327.

A win on Design Defect, Failure to Warn and Negligence affects and helps TVT-O cases everywhere. It will stand as a precedent and also positively impact a lot Ethicon plaintiffs. (The facts of the individual case and the venue where the suit is filed always has to be taken into consideration before the facts of the Huskey case apply.)
I commend Ed Wallace, Wexler Wallace, Chicago, IL and Fidelma Fitzpatrick, Motley Rice, RI for their prosecution of the case and all those who assisted the trial team.
The Linda Gross win was good but they did not prove design defect. Great that Ms. Gross won but her win was not transferable to other cases. The facts of this win translate to other cases! Praise God!

Be Great in the Midst of Criticism! by Joel & Victoria Osteen

From Joel & Victoria Osteeen....
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE September 5, 2014

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.” (Matthew 5:44, NKJV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

If you’re going to pursue greatness, if you’re going to be a great businessperson, a great teacher, a great parent, a great leader, you have to understand that not everyone is going to cheer you on. I’d love to tell you that your family, friends and co-workers will celebrate you, but that’s not necessarily the case. Some people simply can’t handle your success. As you grow and increase, as God pours out His favor on you, someone will get jealous. Someone will start finding fault. Don’t be surprised if a relative tries to belittle or discredit you. You can’t focus on making everyone around you happy or you’ll start changing and lose sight of what God has placed in your heart.

Remember, your destiny is too great to be distracted by people who are never going to affirm you. Don’t take it personally. It’s not about you. It’s their problem. Shake it off, run your race, and be great anyway.

Having greatness in the midst of criticism begins with forgiveness. Don’t hold a grudge. Bless those who curse you; pray for those who spitefully use you. As you keep doing what is right, God will honor you. He’ll promote you, and you’ll be great in the midst of criticism!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, I come to You today with an open and humble heart. I choose to forgive those who have criticized me. I choose to bless those who have hurt me. I choose to be great because You have equipped and empowered me to be great in the midst of criticism in Jesus’ name! Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen

Joel and Victoria bring blessings to millions around the world every single day. They are a light in the darkness, ever obedient to God. They lift me up with their daily devotionals and show me the importance of ever having my face turned toward God. There have been many dark days for me following God's purpose to fight the evil that is synthetic surgical mesh. The highlight of my week is Joel's Sunday sermons on TV. Always, always he brightens my spirit and shows me God's face through his personal joy in the Lord! Praise God! I am blessed.
