Skip to comments.Prayers needed for HHC's dad (Vanity)
Posted on 03/21/2012 5:42:03 PM PDT by sauropod
My wife's (FReeper hellinahandcart) dad has been undergoing chemo and radiation therapy for a fast growing cancer. He's nearing the end of his treatments, but there appears to be something else very wrong.
She says that he is basically out of his mind. This apparently is not related to his cancer, according to the doctors. They are trying to get him to take a CAT scan but he is having none of it. He is also suffering from hallucinations now.
On top of that, he may be coming down with pneumonia and his white blood cell count is down on account of the cancer treatments.
I ask your prayers for either his healing or a quick end.
Please pray for HHC and her family (mom, two brothers). She is going through a tough time.
His name is Jim.
Please keep them in your prayers. ‘Pod.
Please look out for Jim and his family as he goes through this health crisis. He is a good man from a great family and needs your grace during this time. God bless his family and please give him a miraculous recovery.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
My Dad lost his mind after open heart surgery. He was always sharp as a tack with no problems. They never could tell us why or what happened. It was so strange. He passed away 3 months after the surgery. It’s astounding what teams of doctors at good hospitals can’t figure out.
Prayers for Jim. And for all concerned.
I know. I agree.
My wife thinks it may be an undetected tumor on the brain or a blood clot or ...
Kinda hard to tell when he refuses to get checked out and insists that he has already taken his meds when he hasn’t.
“NOT OVER—BUT THROUGH”
I came to the swift raging river,
And the roar was the echo of fear.
“Oh Lord, give me wings to fly over,
If you are, by your promise,quite
But He said, “Trust the grace I am
All-pervasive, sufficient for you.
Take my hand; we will face this
But my plan is - “Not over—but
At times it is easy to trust HIm,
And each promise shines like a light.
“Oh Lord, I am willing to trust you;
I just don’t want to walk in the night.”
But He said, “You can trust me—
When courage and strength are all
When nothing seems right or seems
When all you can do is hang on.”
Written by Pastor Lee Weber when going to a trial
very similar to yours. May you know God’s communion and compassion at this time!

Prayers for Jim. I went through this with my dad.
So hard. My dad had every test they could give him and they still couldn’t figure it out. Hope it all gets better.
I have a friend, up here, who is going through cancer treatment and the medications made him act crazy, as well. The doctors have tweaked his meds and he's doing better but it took them a while to figure it out.
Will pray sauropod.
I am so sorry you guys are going through this. I will keep everyone in my prayers. Remember to let God drive the car.
Am praying for your family. Please update us if you can,
Love in Christ,
Prayers for all, my FRiends...
May God hold Jim and his family in the palm of His hand.
That’s a tough situation. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys. Lost my pop to the big C in 2007. Hang in there as best you can. Tell him as often as you can you love him and what he means to you.
Some side effects of meds are remarkable! So don’t count it out entirely. My thoughts are with you in this rough time. I’m glad he has you both looking out for him.
A friend had a similar reaction after back surgery. Her mind was confused for over a month. She finally came back from where ever she was and is her old self again. God Bless your father.
Prayers lifted for Jim, and for you all. Dear Lord, please share Your strength with Jim’s family, as they try to work with his medical team, and please Lord, guide them as they search for an answer to Jim’s problem.
Prayers lifted for Jim and his family and for your wife.
Prayers have been sent for your family.
One of the hardest things is the fact that you are unable to do anything but be there and be sure he’s comfortable. I’ve been there. My prayers are with your wife, you and the family. May God bless her father and grant him peace.
Pod, I have prayed for Jim and for you and your wife for strength, courage, and for Jim, a return to a sound mind.
It is not uncommon for chemo patients to experience a fogginess of mind for varying lengths of time. It may be how HHC’s dad is reacting to the cumulative level of chemo in his system, with such effects being worsened by incorrect dosages. Sometimes the medical folk do not communicate with each other, and are not aware of what else the patient is taking. Likewise, if Jim is not taking certain meds that he is supposed to, that may be a reason for his reactions also.
I’m praying for wisdom for you also ‘pod, to know what to do, and what questions to ask the doctors. God bless your family.
Jim and HHC and her family will be in my prayers tonight and every night,Pod. Also a special prayer that the doctors can somehow pin down the cause. These last days are hard enough without these complications. Hugs to you all.
A humble Prayer...
Done, thank you.
May God bless and heal Jim.
My best guess is some kind of inflamation in the brain. A tumor might do it. An infection definitely could do it. Or the chemo might do it.
I would try motrin and/or nyquil if they are allowed and see what happens.
Prayers for the dad involved here. Walking the cancer road is not fun. I know.
Blessings to all.
Prayers for Jim and his family.
Prayers for the gentleman’s health.
Saying prayers for Jim.
My prayers for Jim and his family for relief.
Went through this with Mom. It is very hard. My thoughts are with you.
Please Lord, keep hell on earth (sorry, couldn’t resist). Prayers for Jim’s return to normalcy.
Lord Jesus our God, we beseech Thee, be near Thy servant Jim in the hour of his trial and comfort his family.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.
Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car cest à Toi quappartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
