Absolutely. Prayers sent.
A few days before last Christmas, we learned my wife of 20 years had cancer. Our terror and uncertainty of that diagnosis was almost unreal - and like you, I can only speak for myself, and cannot begin to imagine her deepest feelings. In her case, surgery and chemo seemed to have given her a new lease on life, and for that I am eternally grateful. But my message to you is that there are others that understand your fear; you are not alone. Right now, your most important task is to support her in any way possible, but you won’t be able to do that if you don’t take care of your self. Use every tool available and every resource at your disposal, not only to see to her needs - physical, emotional, spiritual - but yours as well. Be strong - good luck.
I had exactly the same condition three years ago, except for the liver tumor, spent twelve days in the hospital coughing up blood from my lungs waiting for the clots to dissolve.
Now I am fine, was told I would be on cumin-um for the rest of my life, it is nasty stuff, I hated it, been off of it now for over a year, and feeling like nothing ever happened.
I say this as encouragement, with prayers.
So sorry. We’ll definitely pray here. What’s your wife’s first name, please?
My prayer went up as I read.
Very sorry to learn of this.
Prayers up! ‘Pod.
Praying for you both.
Prayers and thoughts are with you and your wife.
Sending heartfelt prayers for both you and your wife. I lost my beloved husband and treasured companion last year. Asking God to give you both the strength to fight your wife’s disease, and to give you many more happy years together.
Pinging prayer warriors.
Her name is Janet. Thank you.
Ps get a second opinion!
I’m so sorry to hear this. Prayers for you and your wife.
Prayers up for both of you, and that your physicians receive Divine guidance in her care.
I will pray for your wife, for you, and for her physicians and surgeons.
Amen to your prayer, stars & stripes. Every Word of God proves true. It is a shield for us and He is faithful. We agree that His mercy and grace are already working for her benefit. He has plans for good and not evil for her.
Sir, I am praying for your wife and for you as well. May the healing and comforting arms of the Lord Jesus Christ surround you both. May his infinite wisdom guide the doctors as they work to heal your wife.
Prayers up...and continuing...for your sweet wife.
Sometimes it's hard for us to recognize that in such a personal battle for our loved one, our best human support is to recognize boundaries, offer love and prayers, and focus on the other person's emotional needs, however strange they may seem to us, not on the satisfaction of our own needs or desire to be helpful.
May God comfort and sustain you, and give you peace! Expect a miracle!!
My family will pray a rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet for your wife and you, a plea for miraculous healing for His Greater Glory, that God’s will be done either way - because He wills the Eternal best for her, and you, which is why He sent His Son. I’ll skip a meal for her too.
The why of this suffering you are experiencing today is a way to come closer to understanding Jesus’ love for you and your wife in what He went through for you and her, as you two are going through for her now - true self-giving love like nobody’s business.
Suffering is God positively permitting us a glimpse into what is surrendering to the Father’s will in total Love for Him, as did Jesus for Him, for His children - pre-heaven. Usually we don’t get that and just think “this sucks and I’m so angry”, understandably. It’s a difficult, but in God’s way an opportunity, to experience the Cross, to partake in Jesus’ true and total love (sacrifice) for us. I hope you will feel it that way.
I hope I didn’t freak you out but that this will bring you some measure of deeper understanding.
And their prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make them well. And anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results.
Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed."
Heavenly Father, We all come before you with a solemn heart and in need of Your intercession. We pray that the cancer that has come into this dear womans life soon fades into a quick remission.
Comfort her upon her sickbed, and ease her suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord. We therefore pray that You bless her dear husband with Your loving care, renew his strength, and bless him with peace, comfort and understanding in Your loving name.
We believe in Your loving capacity for miracles, and ask for this on this husband wifes behalf. As we grow older, I know we become closer to the day you accept us back into your kingdom. We ask that you delay that holy union if it be your will. In your name we pray,
Lord, Your scripture set forth that You heal all diseases and whoever believes in You will not perish but have an everlasting life. Strengthen this husband and wife, Lord, in this time of her illness. Sustain them as she lays sick in her bed. When You were on Earth, you did all things good and healed all kinds of sickness.
Lord of all this woman is suffering, her husband is suffering, we ask to do what is right, good and best for them. As it fits your plan, heal her and mend her body and lovingly grant her days of better health and strength. As her husband waits your grace and blessing please grant him an extra measure of patience, endurance and perseverance. Lord we know You are able to heal. Grant this couple the wisdom to understand Your timing.
Let it be done in Your glory, Lord.
We praise and glorify Your name,
I stumbled upon hearing this but will be sure to petition for both of you during Rosary.
That is a very nice prayer so I borrowed it.
Prayers for you and yours.
I did too. Says everything I’d want to say.
I prayed a prayer for you and your wife. May God’s blessings and promises comfort you as you walk through this valley.
May God hold you both in the palm of His hand!
Prayers for you and your wife.
Keeping Janet and you in prayer. May you see the Lord working in your lives.
You have my sincere prayers!!!
As one who has had cancer strike my family with a vengance, I can understand your pain and concern.
Look to Our Heavenly Father. He alone has the answers.
My sincerest prayers for your darling wife at this time.
A special prayer for you as well.
Your prayer at 76 is wonderful and a good form of guidance to us all as we stand with pgkdan during this hard time.
I have said since the 90s that if someone wants to know what a solid contributor looks like, just see the posts of Stand Watch Listen, there are very few better examples of a great contributor than you my FRiend.
Prayers for your wife’s health and healing and for you in coping.
Dear friend, my heart goes out to you and your wife. I had a similar frightening experience. It is like a nightmare from which you want to wake up. Place your trust in our Lord for only in Him will you find peace. You and your wife have been added to my daily prayers.
I am so sorry to read this news.
Dear Lord..Please place your healing hands pgkdan’s dear wife..Guide her physicians in their treatments and diagnosis..Lord, pgkdan and his wife need your strength and comfort to see them through this.
