Prayer Request for my brother
12/01/2011 | TheMom

Posted on 12/01/2011 4:36:56 PM PST by TheMom

In February of this year my older brother went to the hospital due to severe pain and swelling in one leg. Those doctors could not figure out what was causing the pain and swelling, so they sent him home to see his own doctor. His doctor could not figure out the problem either; mean while his other leg started hurting. He was sent to Houston for yet another set of test; still no results. His doctor and the doctors in Houston tried different treatments (medicine) to treat his pain. By this time he has used up his vacation, sick leave and disability time at work so they fired him. Last month he went to another set of doctors, this time in Temple, TX for more test. They determined he had anmemia and hyper or hyposomething (I can’t remember) and asked him to come back this week for results of test and some more testing.

I received a phone call from my sister-in-law yesterday telling me the doctors determined my brother might have Myelofibrosis ~ which if not treated could lead to Leukemia. The ran different blood test and today did a bone marrow biopsy. Those test came back that he has Leukemia. Tomorrow the bone marrow results will determine if the type of Leukemia he has is aggressive or non-aggressive. If non-aggressive, he will receive a week of chemo and have to stay in the hospital for at least one month. My sister-in-law said she went blank before she could hear about what will happen if the Leukemia is aggressive.

Please pray that the Leukemia is non-aggressive and that my brother can be healed with as little as pain as possible.

My sister-in-law said she went blank before she could hear about what will happen if the Leukemia is aggressive.

Make sure there is someone with her when she talks to the medical professionals...for comfort but also to make sure she hears and can process what they are saying.
Stress causes us to check out.

Sorry for what your family is going through. God be with you.

So far as I'm concerned, this is not abuse of your list, TheMom.

Prayers up that God will bless your brother with non-aggressive leukemia, leading to complete recovery and good health. Also please God, let TheMom's brother be well enough to get an even better job than he had before. Dear God, please bless TheMom's entire family with peace, comfort, and healing from illness and worry. Amen.
