Seems that we exceeded 500 posts again, so starting a new thread--I'm including a prayer that Rosebud wrote to begin our last thread...

Please post your praises and prayer requests & I'll try to update the master list soon. Rosebud has done such a fantastic job of that, but I'll try to do justice to it until she returns.

Rosebud's prayer--We Thank You & Praize you, FATHER ~ for hearing & answering all of our prayers and petitions here today; we thank you for your Mercy & Grace, and for your Healing Power in our lives each day; in JESUS' name, Amen & Amen ...

Ronni-

Yes, thanks very much for creating the new thread and stepping up to help in Rosebud's absence. Are things any better with your mom?

Continued prayers for all concerns. Bargoo, I'm glad to see you here and hope you are feeling better. Still praying for you, and Rosebud.

Still sending lots of good thoughts and prayers. Just thought that I should have updated this a long time ago. My son is doing fine now and has moved to another home. They closed down the home he was in but he has been in this one before and gets along well with the other clients there. He has his own room and is very well taken care of. We were able to visit him in September and he looks wonderful.. PTL!

Our grandsons are still having to live in Denver with their stepdad for now. They do get to spend some time back in Colorado Springs with their Mom and family. The end of the summer and they can make their own decision so we will just have to wait and be patient. But they seem to be doing good and are doing well in school

I'm hoping that everyone has a safe and Happy holiday. If I don't get back to you before then, I'm having the dinner here this year for about 20!!

Take care....

I understand about the bathing and walking , I need help in taking a shower too afraid to try the bathtub, Can only walk with help, but Praise the Lord, Rosebud, we are still here , God surely has something more for us to do.
Thank you so much for letting us know your current condition.

praise God for His blessings! Today I have been truly humbled by answers to prayer.
Flowers wishing me a speedy recovery from my op from the brother who I haven't seen for 3 years, a much needed boost for my finances out of the blue and i felt well enough to walk the dog! As I am only 2 and a half weeks after fairly major surgery I am 1000 % better than I thought I would be at this stage!
I pray for all of you but most especially if you are going through a time of trial. God is with us always.

Prayers going up for Rosebud, that her cellulitis might be healed quickly, and Praising God for Mountain Walker's speedy recovery and praying that the recovery will continue to go so well.

I could use prayers for my mom, who is an alcoholic that has recently switched from wine to brandy and has begun hiding her bottles. She's going through about 1-1/2 liters of brandy every 4 days now, which is a lot I think. My dad says she doesn't know he found her hiding spot, and he's afraid to confront her. They live clear across the country from me, so I can't say anything without outing my dad and that would be a big fight for them. Mom needs to see that her alcoholism is destroying her health and her marriage.

Prayers going up for Rosebud that your anxiety will disappear and for quick breath recovery and for your husband.

Continued prayers for Bargoo.

Ronni, thanks- I am considering joining Al-Anon and see if there is a local chapter my Dad can join. They live in a very small town- even if there is a chapter, he may not wish to join because everyone talks in those small towns. I'm really concerned - their marriage is suffering because my mom is constantly angry, and my mom is destroying her health. My grandmother died of liver cancer from drinking too much, now it looks like my mom is determined to head down that same path. :(

Dee So sorry to hear about your Dad and Mom's problems. Will keep you and your parents in my prayers.

Rosebud I pray that your breathing will get better and better. DH would get very anxious when he was having problems breathing when he over exerted himself. He is so much better now. I pray you will get better too. I pray you will be able to sleep better at night so you can stay awake better in the day time.

Prayers going up for all.

I'm back, too. I took a few days off the internet, for the most part, but am here.

Praying for Rosebud, Numpster, Bargoo, and all concerns.

I spoke with my mom yesterday and although I didn't bring up her drinking directly, I did ask her if she was taking care of herself and she said it was funny I asked and admitted she'd been down in the dumps lately. She said she's been putting on weight and not exercising. I'm hoping that the conversation will have her re-evaluate how much she's been drinking and would appreciate continued prayers.

Hello, this is Numpster, Rosebuds sister. It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that my dear sister Dianne (aka Rosebud) passed into the Lord's hands this morning at 11:15 am. Please know that she died peacefully in her sleep. She was well sedated and had the most awesome hospice team taking care of her and helping her through her last hours.
Thank you for all your prayers and to all God Bless.
Wendy (aka Numpster)

Please accept my condolences on the death of your sister Dianne aka Rosebud. I didn't always post on this thread, but I've been a regular visitor for many years. Rosebud has always been an inspiration, with her faith and love for the LORD. Her posts were always upbeat and encouraging. I pray that you'll feel God's comforting presence in the coming days.

ronni62
12-08-2013, 06:28 PM
Wendy (Numpster)-I am so very sorry to hear about Rosebud's (Dianne's) passing. She was an incredible inspiration to me and so many others here. I enjoyed her posts very much and grew to love her as if I knew her personally. I know she will be missed by many here and by all of you who were family and friends. You will all be in my prayers. God bless you and all of Dianne's family, especially her husband. I pray you all find comfort knowing she's with her Lord and Savior and will be sharing Christmas with Him this year. Here's a poem I was lead to when another dear friend of mine (named Diana) passed away from cancer a couple years ago:

Merry Christmas From Heaven

I still hear the songs,
I still see the lights
I still feel your love on cold wintry nights

I still share your hopes and all of your cares
Iíll even remind you to please say your prayers

I just want to tell you, you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders above all the crowd

Keep trying each moment, to stay in His grace
I came here before you to help set your place

You donít have to be perfect all of the time
He forgives you the slip, if you continue the climb

To my family and friends,
Please be thankful today
Iím still close beside you,
In a new special way

I love you all dearly,
Now donít shed a tear
Cause Iím spending my
Christmas with Jesus this year

-by John Wm. Mooney, Jr.

God bless you, Wendy, and all of your family. I'm so sad with you and will miss your sister very much.

I'm heartbroken this morning as I just read Numpster's post.

Numpster, your family has my deepest condolences. I am so sorry to hear that Rosebud passed, although I take joy in knowing she is surely with the Lord now. I will miss her. There's a few people here, and elsewhere in my life, that I feel have brought me closer to the Lord, and Rosebud is one of them. She was a true Christian inspiration.

Rosebud's husband, and the rest of your family, will be in my continued prayers.

I also continue to pray for Bargoo, I hope she is healing.

Dee

Prayers continuing for all requests & especially Bargoo and for Rosebud's family.

A request for DS3's girlfriend and her family-they're having a rough time right now. The GF has type 1 diabetes (15 years old) and has a hard time controlling it. She passed out in the shower last week with no one home and laid there 45 minutes before she had the strength to get out of the shower. We worry about her a lot. I found out a couple days ago that her mother has a pacemaker that isn't fixing the heart problem the way it should and the doctor wanted her to be hospitalized, but she wouldn't stay and is at home and working as normal. I don't know her well at all, but I'm guessing she's afraid of being away from DS3's GF, due to the diabetes issues. Also, the mom's mom (DS3's GF's grandma) is dying of brain cancer and has only 2-6 months (very optimistic estimate, according to the mom). There's a lot on their plates right now and they are not believers. GF is seeking, but my DS hasn't told me she's made a commitment yet-he's very open about that.

I know you all will lift them up, plus my DS3, as he's soft-hearted and trying to help out however he can. He's been down that road of losing grandparents to cancer, so he knows what she's going through. We paid the fee for her to go on the youth group's Christmas break retreat/conference trip at the end of the month, so she'd have some time away and maybe focus on her growing faith. Couldn't really afford it, but felt led to give this to her.

Thanks, in advance, for all the prayers. Lifting you all up every day!:hug:

Ronni-

Prayers sent for your DS3's GF, mother and grandmother. Praying for the GF to be led to the right support and medical professionals so she can learn to manager her diabetes, for her mother to get the help she needs with her pacemaker, for her grandmother to be able to complete any tasks needed before her passing, and for all of them to be led to Christ.

Continued prayers for Rosebud's family, and Bargoo's healing.

My mother, when I called Sunday, was quite drunk. I'm really concerned. It's hurting her marriage, and her health, and I think is just pulling her down even further into depression. I would ask for prayers for her and my step-Dad.

ronni62
12-11-2013, 08:35 PM
Dee-Prayers continuing for your mom & dad (and you, as well). It's a hard, hard situation to be in. I don't know if it would help or if it would even work, but have you heard the idea that many alcoholics crave the alcohol because they are allergic to it (the grains, in particular)? My dad had to give up his drinking when his allergy to it got so bad he would quit breathing at night after drinking due to swelling in his throat. I wonder if you could ask your mom's doc to test her for allergies to see if she has reactions to wheat, barley, hops, and anything else used to make the booze. Most docs won't address a drinking issue, but some are willing to talk to patients about allergies. Just a thought...Prayers going up:hug:

EagleRiverDee
12-12-2013, 02:55 PM
Ronni-

Thanks. My mom almost certainly has food allergies. She's had a gut problem for years, but when I've suggested she do allergy testing or an anti-inflammatory diet she refuses.

I appreciate the prayers. Your family remains in my prayers.

Bootsie-I'll pray for your stresses to leave! :hug:

Please pray for my DH today. We have a new small group church meeting starting tonight. Please pray that he won't start coming up with silly excuses to not go to any more of them. I can foresee things likeÖ"They have more money than us, so we have nothing in common" "They're farmers and have more money than us, so we have nothing in common" "They live in the big town, so we have nothing in common" He's a master of coming up with 'reasons' we can't socialize or be friends with others. We haven't had any kind of social life for years because of his judgmental attitude and it even causes problems for us going to church, because he's one of those who says "There are too many hypocrites there for me to go"---Kinda driving me crazy. He needs to see that he's not perfect and that no one's any better or worse, just human, and we all need God and to support each other. He has been going to church with us for about a year now regularly, but sometimes, those judgmental attitudes creep in and he just doesn't seem to be able to see how his opinions are not necessarily correct.

Anyway, I'm just hoping these new in-home small groups are the opening for him to meet some new people and really get to know them and, in the process, get to know more of how God wants us to live & believe. Thanks!

Praying for you and your husband, for he and all were made unique ,very special made, God put something special in all of us, for it would be a boring world if we were all alike. Hope all went well if not just like housework,dieting don't give up on him. My husband has not much to say unless it is on a cow,goat,dog or cat. Maybe find out someone who likes the same thing so they will have something to talk about., kinda accidentally sit across from them and start up a conversation. When my husband starts talking hard to stop him so we can leave. Gotta love him! Ha!

The first meeting went very wellÖ.it was a dinner, of course, and mostly for getting to know each other. Turns out that the couple that sat next to us, who's boys had played football with our boys in high school, but we hadn't met, had actually lived in the same town where DH grew up and our boys were born in the same hospital! DH seemed to really enjoy getting to meet them and talk about the old town, as well as meeting some of the others we hadn't met before. It was an answered prayer for sure!

Hello and I'm back and need some prayers for my hubby..

My Hubby hasn't been feeling so good since about Thanksgiving. He started with a head and chest cold and then never really has bounced back. But anyway, and probably has nothing to do with the cold, last week I told him his eyes looked yellow. Well of course he couldn't see it. But then he did go ahead and make an appt. with the Dr. And his skin is yellow now too. We had to be at the VA clinic in Mt.Vernon at 8:30--it is about an hour away on Wednesday. The Dr. thought it was hepatitis but wouldn't know for sure until all the blood work got back whether it was A, B or C-- He called Thursday morning and it isn't Hepatitis so they want more blood work done and an ultrasound of his liver and pancreas. We had to be there at 7:30 yesterday morning. The ultrasound shows an obstruction,maybe a growth or a lot of gall stones, between the liver and pancreas. So now we will be headed to Fayettville on Wednesday morning for a cat scan of that. Sure hope they can find out what is going on and get him better. He has lost 10 pounds and he can't afford to lose any weight!! So that has been my week!

Even though I haven't posted much lately I have been reading your posts and continue to send prayers..

Sorry, I've been MIA around here.

Bootsie I really miss Gary and Rosebud too. I've got friends here at church home who are battling cancer. Our Pastor told us at Wednesday night small group meeting that they have learned that the cancer of one of them is not curable. It is shrinking with treatment and we are praying it doesn't spread. This woman is so precious and loves the Lord so much. I really pray that she will be all right. Sorry to hear of the loss of your little pet. Did you get the freezing weather there in TX? I'm beginning to miss TX and wish I could go home and be close to my family. My Daddy is 90 yrs young and I surely do miss him.

Ronni My DH and I just started back to small group meetings at our church. He always enjoyed going, but the Pastor would as him to pray and he doesn't feel comfortable praying in public. The crazy thing is that we head up the internet prayer ministry for our church and when DH sends out the prayer lists each week and also during the week when we receive new requests, he writes the most beautiful prayers. He says it is easy to do it when you have time to think about what you are writing which is quite different from doing it on the spur of the moment in front of people. When he got sick, we quit going to small groups because we had physical reasons for not being able to be there. However, when we could have gone back, he wouldn't go. He did ask the Pastor one time not to call on him to pray, but he is so busy with so much on his mind that he forgot and asked Tony to pray one night. I finally told DH last Sunday that I had signed us up for Wednesday night. It is usually a larger group and my lady friends go to that group and I would feel more comfortable going to it with out him. I let him know that he could go or not, but I was going. I was shocked that day when he told me he was going with me and I have to tell you that we both had a wonderful time. It was just what we have been needing. Glad your hubby went with you and I'll be praying our hubbies will continue to go with us. :)

Karen I surely will be praying for you and your DH that whatever the problem is that God will give the doctors wisdom as to what it is and how to successfully treat it.

Prayers continue for all.

We did finally hear from his Dr. and they want to do a ERCP on him. There is a definite obstruction and gall stones, the gall stones may be the obstruction. Now we are hoping they can do it at one of our local hospitals and not have to drive to Littlerock which is like 5 hours away.. So we are waiting to hear from him on that now. keep the prayers coming.

penmage Don't ever feel like you shouldn't ask for prayer for yourself. We all need prayer and sometimes special prayer for ourself. The Lord knows the situation and I pray the situation will quickly be resolved favorably.

Karen Glad they know the problem and praying in agreement with you that it can be taken care of locally, quickly, and a speedy recovery for your DH. Also praying for you as you go through this as it is not easy for the caregiver. I know from personal experience. Many times I have had to pray for strength and patience as I walked through things with DH.

Prayers continue for all.

I had blood work yesterday and the nurse called to tell me that I am anemic. I'm sure it is something simple. I have to take in a stool specimen to see if there is blood, but I don't think there is from what I've seen. He is checking some other things. I really think that I'm anemic because I had cut way back on red meat and even other meats even tried eating more vegetarian for a while. So I think it is just my body telling me that I need to eat some iron foods. Please pray with me that everything will be fine. Thanks. I appreciate your prayers.

Prayers continue for Karen and her husband, Bargoo and all other prayer requests.

They did a CT scan on Tim. They also did a pulmonary function test and more labs today. It is pancreatic cancer. It is in a very early stage. They need to determine if he is a candidate for surgery which is basically a cure, If not then they will need to figure out the chemo treatment. Just wanted to update everyone and Thanks for all the prayers.

Please send up some prayers for my mom, again. She's completely delusional and the increase in meds is not working. i really don't know what's going on, but am wondering if she may have alzheimer's along with the schizophrenia. I'll probably have to go to the court tomorrow to file committal paperwork. She's accusing me of stealing from her and trying to have her arrested. She believes that people are 'gassing' her in her home again and getting in and telling her to do things while she's sleeping. This is the first time in a long time that I've felt such despair over this situation. I really don't want to have her committed, but she's going to harm someone or herself if this continues. Probably, I'm just feeling sorry for myself, wishing I'd had a normal mom and had more happy times to remember. Please pray for her.

Prayers continuing for Bargoo, Karen & Tim, and all other needs. :hug:

Tim goes tomorrow for more blood work and then we need to go to Kansas City again on Thursday for a PET scan of his throat. They said there is an enlarged area around the lymph nodes. Praying that it is something different and the cancer hasn't spread.

Bootsie-What was your grandmother's diagnosis? Sounds like it was a very difficult time for your mom-so sorry that had to happen.
Karen-Prayers continue for you and Tim.
Bargoo- Prayers always for you!

I had to have my mom committed in Feb. but the doctor did not keep her in the hospital more than 3 days. She is now court-ordered on meds and psych visits, but is already trying to find a way to manipulate her new doctor into taking her off the meds. I have basically been disowned, but, right now, that's ok. I'm tired of the situation…I know it's probably wrong to feel that way, but I feel it's gotten to the point that she's going to have to give herself "enough rope to hang herself" and then, the court will order a guardianship or inpatient treatment. I am worried that she has a neighbor who seems to be taking advantage of her and asking for money, but, again, I'm going to have to wait that one out and just see what happens. Her neighbor is younger than me and able-bodied, so could work, but seems to choose not to, but keeps telling mom she needs money for groceries. But, Mom seems to have 'adopted' her as her new daughter, since I did the horrendous act of having her put in the hospital. Oh, well, I know God will work in this situation---He's our all-powerful strength, even over mental illnesses!

Thanks for all your prayers! Keeping you all in mine! God bless!

Bootsie-My mom's condition also developed in the mid-60's. She was diagnosed manic-depressive (now called bipolar), but now we know it was actually schizophrenia or a combination of both. She was originally treated with shock therapy, which caused her to lose some of her recent memory, including recognizing her children. She had no idea who I was when she came home from the hospital, even though dad had tried to tell her. She never really tried to connect much with me through my childhood and mostly criticized, especially about my weight. The mental health community has learned a lot over the years, but still isn't anywhere near where they need to be in treating and controlling mental illnesses. Very sad situation still.

I have a prayer request-One of my sons' football coaches fell while on spring break and fractured his skull. He's in a hospital in Texas, has had brain surgery to fix a brain bleed and is starting rehab. He's still having problems swallowing, so he can not eat or drink anything, and there are some other issues, such as needing assistance walking, so, obviously there has been some kind of brain damage. He is married with 2 small boys. His wife is with him, but the boys are at home with relatives. Please pray for quick and complete healing for him. Not sure of his faith at all, but doubting he's a believer at this time, so pray also for him/them to come to know Christ through this. Thank you!

And then we have to come up next Tuesday and Wednesday ( will stay overnight) Tuesday is more tests ( the scope through the throat again to see what stage the cancer tumor is now) and Wednesday they will meet with him again and start chemo. This will all be done prior to getting his surgery done at KU. He meets with the surgeon on Thursday. Keep the prayers coming. Thanks--I am so tired today. just feel worn out

We are back at the lodge and I didn't run over anybody. The Dr. that did the endoscopy said the opening that he needed to go through was smaller than the end of the scope so he wasn't able to get all the way into the lower intestine. But he said the cancer has expanded but is very operable. Which he was able to tell from the CT scan. He called Tim's Dr immediately so everything is set to meet with the surgeon on Thursday Will still meet with his Dr on the morning and they will determine if they still want to start the chemo before the surgery. Tim says he would rather wait until after the surgery

I usually post on Chicks Up for a Challenge, but I have a prayer request. My brother was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia a week ago.

Well, we didn't get the happy news we were expecting from the surgery. Once the surgeon got in there he saw that the cancer had spread to Tim's liver and determined removing the tumor on the pancreas was a higher risk than leaving it. They did remove his gall bladder which was full of stones. But told us that chemo is not very successful with this type of cancer. He is stage 4 and the decision to do chemo will totally have to be up to him. As the surgeon put it to me he will need to choose the quantity of life or quality of life. So it wasn't good news at all. He should be released from the hospital on Saturday. Just wanted to come and give an update

Glad you trust us with the update so we know how to pray,just to remind you of my situation, You know how long I have been posting here since having cancer I first had breast cancer, which spread to my bones then spread to my brain followed by nodules on the lungs. At this time they offered me hospice or chemo I chose chemo, I saw my oncologist this week and he was quite pleased to say the chemo is working I don't tell you this to be bragging but may give you a little hope, I am stage 4 too Don'g give up your trust in the Great Physician I hope you have a good prayer team in place, I will be praying for you too ,My experience may not be your husbands just sharing so you can see what mat happen you never know with this disease.

Karen- You and Tim will be in my prayers!

And this may sound kooky- but research the baking soda cancer cure. I have a relative with cancer and a friend of family with cancer that both tried it and one has stage IV ovarian cancer. Initially they told her she had a 50% chance of living two years. She did the baking soda thing and it shrunk her tumors prior to surgery and now they tell her she has a 90% chance of 5 years. I know this sounds like an internet hoax, but it's cheap and has no downside, so maybe try it? It's just baking soda and molasses or baking soda and maple syrup. The theory behind it is that cancer cannot survive an alkaline environment, and cancer feeds on sugar. The mix of the baking soda (which turns the body alkaline) and the maple syrup or molasses is that the sugar in the syrup gets pulled into the cancer cells but they also pull in the baking soda and that kills the cancer cells. There's different recipes on the internet for it but they are pretty similar.

Thanks Bargoo, I just feel like such a mess right now. Nothing I seem to do seems to be the right thing. I find myself all teary more than anything right now I have had a few meltdowns just by talking to strangers where I would break down and cry. As I am writing this I am all teary but I know I need to be strong and support him in anyway I can. It isn't going to be easy and I'm sure I will end up some times just walking away instead of saying things that I will regret. I know he is going to lash out and I'm the closest to receive it. I won't fight and won't argue so I see myself taking lots of drives or walks with my little poms. But know it isn't going to be easy. Thanks for the prayers and I know god has his plan.

Tabbycat here.

My brother John got a poor prognosis for his acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He has the Philadelphia chromosome which means the cancer is less likely to respond to chemo and more likely to recur. We are 16 days into treatment and he is not making good blood cells yet. Please pray for him and for his elderly mother who will not leave his side.

Karen, I will be praying for you and Tim.

I have never heard of this either.Where do you get information ?

Originally from my Dad, who has had prostate cancer and researched alternative therapies and he settled on one that uses hormones. It cured him- he is free of cancer now and it's been something like 6 years since his treatments. He didn't want surgery, and he didn't want chemo. So he keeps up on all the alternative therapies, and he found the one on the baking soda cure. He sent it to me, and honestly since then I see it everywhere. On Facebook, in blogs, even in some articles. My doctor has me taking baking soda -not for cancer, but because I tend to be acidic and it was causing me to have a burning bladder and once she put me on baking soda it helped unbelievably. I can now sleep for about 6 hours at a time without having to get up, which is a miracle considering I used to get up every hour on the hour. Anyway, I digress. This is from the email he sent me, with the recipe he uses (and the recipe my Aunt and her friend use):

You take 3 tablespoons of maple syrup to 1 of baking soda (you should use about 12 tbsp of syrup and 4 of baking soda to make enough of the mixture). Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes, stirring continually. Take 1 teaspoon twice a day for a week.

The idea behind it is this: cancer cells need to be acid. Making the body alkaline kills them. Normal cells will be unaffected, therefore no side effects. Straight baking soda would not be accepted by the cancer cells, therefore the need for the maple syrup (probably any sweet syrup would work, but maple helps make it taste a little better!) which the cancer cells will take in, along with the acidic baking soda (apparently the simmering and stirring breaks the baking soda down into small enough particles to enter the cells).

Well, they have had Tim on Reglan for the last 3 days and are letting him try clear liquids again today. It seems like the Reglan has got his stomach working again like it should and hoping that the food he eats stays down. This will be his third try and it seems like the other 2 times he has got to about day 3 and then loses the food that he ate. So we are praying that this works this time. He is ready to come home and I'm ready for him to. 15 days is a long time to be in the hospital! Keep the prayers coming.

And I continue to keep all of you in my prayers.

Asking for prayers this morning for my Uncle.

First, a couple weeks ago he was given 2 weeks to get out of the house he's been living in. He's been unemployed for 18 months and I guess they got fed up. He contacted me, and I offered to loan him some money to get on his feet, get a place to stay, and to fund his job hunting.

He's got stress issues- like panic disorder- that makes it where he deals with stressful situations poorly. I've been trying to help, but he lives in WV and I live in Alaska and that makes it tough because I can only offer support via phone/email and not in person.

Then yesterday he wakes up and is peeing blood and is in a lot of pain. He goes to the hospital and they think they found a mass on his bladder- they're thinking it might be bladder cancer but nothing is certain. He is supposed to see a specialist. In the meantime, he's decided due to his Google searches that he must have stage 3 or 4 bladder cancer and that he's a goner.

I'm relatively certain he doesn't have insurance and I'm not sure if ever was signed up for Medicaid. He's destitute, so I'm certain he qualifies.

Last night he threw 16 months of sobriety down the toilet and got hammered. I'm concerned that the money I gave him will now go to fund his drinking.

My Uncle turned his back on nearly all his family- I am literally the only family member he will speak to besides his son and ex-wife. He's cut everyone else off. My Grandparents both passed away without him speaking to them, and his sister (my Aunt) has tried numerous times to get in touch with him and he won't allow her to. No one knows what his reasons are for that. I don't know why he gives me an exception. The point being that there are people closer to him that could help, if he would let them.

Please pray for him. He needs a place to live, some sort of health coverage, a doctor that will accept the coverage he has, to stay away from booze, and ideally to let my Aunt at least back into his life because she is in a much better position (geographically and financially) to help him than I am.

ronni62
04-18-2014, 10:46 AM
Dee-Prayers for your uncle have been lifted up. It's so hard to understand why people cut themselves off from others (I know alcoholism and mental illness play a huge role in this). I pray that he will see God's hand helping guide his decisions and know that He will help if your uncle will allow Him in. Prayers for you, too, as I know how hard it is to be the only one who is called upon for help and know you can't do everything that needs to be done. Hugs for you!

Hi everyone,

SO glad to find some prayerful support for both my weight loss journey and just life in general.

Please pray for the soul of my daughter Isabelle Francis. She was stillborn on March 21, 2014, I was 38 weeks pregnant. Please pray for my husband and I as we continue to deal with our loss. Please pray for me as I prepare to return to work very soon. I'm seeking a new job as my current one involves working closely with young children and I find this very difficult right now. I wish only to do the will of God, my father and pray that His will be done in me.

Thank you.

We went and met with the oncologist on Wednesday and really had a good session with him--- lots of questions were asked and answered-- he spent almost an hour with us and we never felt rushed. The results being-- if Tim should choose to do nothing, he would have maybe a couple months left. If he chooses chemo, he can have as much as 6 to 14 months. The cancer isn't curable and the chemo should just make him feel some better in the long run for the time we have left. I was so very impressed with the oncologist. He gave me his office phone number and said if he is in the office he will answer the phone. BUT then he gave me his cell phone number and told me if I have any questions even in the middle of the night, to text him. He said he might not answer in the middle of the night but as soon as he turned his cell back on in the morning he will. Just made me feel so good---well as good as you can in this situation. He has 2 appointments set up on May 7th and if all goes well he will be starting chemo on the 8th. I know there are so many days that are going to be filled with anger, tears, hurts and I don't know what else-- but it is the way it is and I just have to accept it. Keep the prayers coming.

Fleur---I will add you to my prayers. So very hard my heart hurts for you.

Well, they admitted Tim into to hospital Friday night. When we got him to the hospital his heart rate was 150 and his temp was 103.2 and his BP was 94/56. They started pumping him full of 4 different antibiotics and IV fluids. By the time my brother and I left last night his temp was down to 99.7. I got home about 2:30am.Sure do appreciate my brother being so supportive in this with me. I don't know what I would do without my family being so close! I got(but missed) a call from Tim at 5:00am. He wanted to remind me to bring up his list of medications and also his medical directives and the power of attorney for me. But then MR. CRANKYPANTS took over and he was mean and nasty!! He was ready to leave the hospital right then. So needless to say I was in no hurry to get up to the hospital today. By the time I piddled around the house and got up here a little after noon he was in a better mood! Still not sure what caused it other than an infection of some kind. Now of all things they may end up transferring him back to the VA in KC. THIS DOESNT MAKE ME HAPPY!!!' They are checking now what to do. Just found out they can't do anything on that until Monday anyway so hopefully he will get to come home tomorrow.. WHEW!! What a night!!

Update Sunday afternoon: Just got a call from Tim. He just saw the Dr. and he has bacteria in his urine and they are trying to track that down so they can target the antibiotics. And he has blood clots in both legs. He will be in the hospital at least another 2 or 3 days

We went to KC yesterday to get the prescriptions Tim needed and ended up spending about 3 hours with his oncologist, and his oncologist nurse. Not to bad for not having any appointment at all
with any of them. They have determined that there isn't really anything else they can do for Tim other than try to keep him as comfortable and happy as possible. They called in the social worker there too, again remember no appointment, and she spent a good amount of time with us explaining the hospice program. So she is going to get that set up and started ASAP. Then picked up his meds that he needed and headed home. Thanks so much to my sister for taking out her whole day with me to help in ways that I'm sure neither of us imagined. Love my sister!!!!! Then she went above and beyond and gave Tim his shot that he needed today. Love my sister!!!Just wanted to update everyone.

May I ask for prayers, please? I had a rescue dog I was fostering that I'd had for 8 days- he had never shown any aggression or untoward interest in my cats. On Saturday, I was vacuuming and one of my cats ran from the vacuum. I couldn't hear anything over the vacuum- but when I got done I found that the new dog had attacked my cat and killed it. I am utterly heartbroken, I feel horribly guilty, I am having trouble getting the condition of my cat's body out of my head. It was awful. He was the sweetest cat, and I loved him very much, and I just feel so responsible. The dog has gone back to the rescue, and I feel awful about that too because he has serious separation anxiety and he and I were becoming attached to one another. And I know he didn't kill my cat to be bad- I'm sure the running cat triggered a chase instinct. It's an awful situation. I am full of anxiety, with stomach cramps and difficulty eating and sleeping. If you could pray for the Lord to help me find acceptance and peace with this issue, I would really appreciate it.

Karen and Tim remain in my daily prayers, and Bargoo, for healing.

I can only say that maybe some good will come from it, in that the shelter now knows there's some retraining to be done with the dog before it's put into another home with pets (or even children). So sorry for the loss of your poor kitty. Praying for peace for you.

Dee I'm sorry to hear about your cat and dog situation. I had a kitten and a puppy that I got at the same time. They loved each other so much because they grew up together. Then one morning the boys found the kitten dead by the side of the house. Come to find out the German shepherd of a friend of our got out and killed her. I always felt like it was m fault because she didn't know to be afraid of the German shepherd and run because she only knew one dog that loved her, my Cocker Spaniel she had grown up with. I decided right then and there I would never do that again. It didn't stop me from feeling heartbroken and hurt. I pray you can find peace in the situation.

Sorry I have been kind of MIA!! Tim has 4 younger siblings (2 sisters and 2 brothers) and over the course of the last 2 weeks they have all made their way to see him. Not all at the same time... WHEW!! But his oldest younger sister(from Albuquerque, NM) came in and spent 4 days with us. And the his two brothers (one from Mass and one from New Hampshire) came at the same time for like 3 days and then the day they left, we, the brothers and I, went and picked up the youngest sister who came from Pennsylvania. We picker her up at 1:00am and the brothers had to leave at 5:00am to fly out that same morning so it has been a whirlwind couple of weeks!

Tim is now trying another type of chemo. It is an oral pill called capesidabene--Don't know if I spelled that right or not. He has been taking it a little over a week now and seems to be doing OK. I keep asking him how he feels but I don't think he would tell me if he feels bad... MEN!! Anyway, they have told me that from the time that the pancreatic cancer was diagnosed it had probably already been in his system for at least 14 months. And on April 1 they told us they were giving him 6 months to a year. So everything is really just day by day.. But right now he is doing OK.

Please pray for me, been a believer for a long long time and holding onto my faith now w/everything i have. Trials and tribulations galore and of long standing. Husband has severe chronic illnesses including severe pain, we have no health insurance and no doctors and almost poverty level, he's 65 and has to work as hard as when he was 30 (self employed) and today i had one of my panic attacks....H and i were to pick up my brother from the hospital after back surgery where he was to stay at our house at least overnight, i was supposed to drive his car back and H drive our car w/my brother. Well i had a major attack and just COULDN'T go and H is now trying to find his way to the hospital and navigate all that--i'm usually the eyes and ears.

on top of it, the shame, the way i am shaken inside, the loss of self esteem (it can't be helped, it happens no matter what) and how i've let people down and now have to pick up the pieces. Trying not to make a big deal of it in my head or it'll damage me even more.

Tim was to have an ERCP done yesterday and the ERCP wasn't completed. They couldn't get down to where they need to be. They will do it tomorrow through "Interventional Radiology" not sure what time. They will also drain the fluid from his abdomen. Hospice will be transporting him home and will furnish a hospital bed and all the equipment he needs. Will know more when he will be home after tomorrow. Talked to him this morning and he said he is very weak. Been doing things around the house to make room for the hospital bed and other things that he will need. He is losing ground fast.. Need lots of prayers.

Went up with my sister to see Tim today. I paged and texted the Drs. and Social workers and said we would be there about 3:00. Met with just about everyone. They have determined that Tim will need to have 24 hour assistance, so this means they will be placing him in a Hospice facility. They are checking to see if they can get him in somewhere a lot closer to home. So far they are looking at a place that is about 50 miles away but that is still better than 150 miles away. They are giving him morphine and keeping him comfortable. They may be able to move him as soon as Friday or it may be Monday.

Went up with my sister to see Tim today. I paged and texted the Drs. and Social workers and said we would be there about 3:00. Met with just about everyone. They have determined that Tim will need to have 24 hour assistance, so this means they will be placing him in a Hospice facility. They are checking to see if they can get him in somewhere a lot closer to home. So far they are looking at a place that is about 50 miles away but that is still better than 150 miles away. They are giving him morphine and keeping him comfortable. They may be able to move him as soon as Friday or it may be Monday.

Karen, God bless you and Tim.

Tim called just a bit ago. It is so hard for him to talk. He said he has hoped I would be coming up today. I told him I was planning on tomorrow. He said he had a palliative nurse assigned to him now. So I called her.
I just talked to the palliative nurse for Tim. I called her. She said the Drs. were in with him now and she would call me back after she talked to them. I told her I wanted to come up tomorrow unless she thought I needed to come up today. She will let me know.

My brother got my stem cells (used to be called bone marrow transplant) on July 8. He has made it over 30 days so they call the transplant a success. He is out of the hospital now but has to stay within 20 minutes of the cancer center at all times, and he still gets daily treatments. Please pray for John and especially for our 85 year old mother Mary Ann who is his caregiver. We have moved them into a one bedroom apartment near the cancer center.

Karen-I'm so sorry to learn of Tim's passing. Take comfort in knowing he's with the Lord, but I know you feel his loss very deeply. You and your family are still in my prayers. Wish I could reach out and hug you. God bless you and carry you through this.

Tabbycat-Prayers going up for your brother, mother, and you, as well.

Bargoo-Prayers always for you, as well. Hugs for you.

Karen- that is a nice tribute. Praying for the Lord's comfort and peace for you.

My mom is going through a difficult time right now. She's trying to get off her anti-depressants because they are causing her big problems with her gut that leave her housebound. But in the process, she's going through a phase where she's become very angry and suspicious. My mom stopped talking to me about 3 weeks ago. I call once a week and my Dad told me that Mom's decided that I'm in collusion with my 2nd cousin against her, that somehow we're conspiring against her. I have no idea what she thinks we're conspiring about, or why she thinks we're conspiring to begin with as I never speak with my cousin. The sum total of our communication is that she texted me pictures of her dogs a few months ago, and of the house she's buying, and we're linked on a social networking site where we occasionally comment on each other's posts. I don't post about my mom, either. But anyway, my feelings are hurt that my mom not only has jumped to this incorrect conclusion but that her reaction has been to choose not to speak with me. I ask for prayers that my mom's depression/anger/paranoia would be lifted from her, and also that she would receive help with her alcohol addiction. Thank you.

Some of you may remember a request a year ago for a friend's daughter, Jenna, who's been fighting cancer. She's 24 and is losing the battle. She will probably go home to be with her Savior this week, so I'm requesting prayer for her family. She will be leaving her mom and dad, plus a brother and her twin sister, plus many, many friends and other family. There's a prayer vigil tonight at 8 EDT for her and the family, if anyone has the time to lift them up. One of her quotes that her aunt posted today is "Rejoice always. Even if you don't feel like it, there is a reason for joy."

Thank you for the prayers.

Hi again. This is Annie with a difficult update. My brother John's cancer has returned, just three days before he reached the 100 day milestone after stem cell transplant. Please pray for him and his mother Mary Ann. This was a hard blow.

Annie-Prayers going up.

And, to update...Jenna passed away on Friday. Her family is very sad, but also knows she is no longer in any pain and is with her Heavenly Father now. Please just lift them up in prayer for comfort and strength for a while now as they get used to her absence. Thank you so much. Prayers continue for you all.

Just updating, how is Jenna's family doing ? / I know this is tough for them to take but they have the assurance that she is in her Fatherly Arms where she is safe and secure. I pray for her family that they find peace and comfort.

Bargoo-Thank you for asking about Jenna's family. Sorry I haven't been here much to see it before now, though. The family is doing as well as can be expected. Jenna had been a writer/journaler and they are taking much comfort in reading all she had written and sharing with others.

How are you doing, yourself, Bargoo? I think about you and send up prayers very often. Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone else here, too!
