Prayer Request
Militiaman7 | 8-10-2004 | Militiaman7

Posted on 08/10/2004 5:23:10 PM PDT by Militiaman7

I'm a strong believer in Prayer. Over the years I've asked for prayers for a couple of my Grandchildren. Isaiah and Breanna. Both are fine now thanks mostly to the prayers of Family, Friends and Freepers. Thank you all again.

This week I was informed that I have Cancer of the Esophagus. I won't go into the details except to say I have a good team of Doctors working with me. The Coach of my team is the Great Physician and I trust him completely.

They are hoping for complete remission after treatment of chemotherapy and radiation. Surgery may be an option later on, but it isn't now.

I am literally half the man I was a year ago, I have lost between 70 and 80 pounds, but some of that can be attributed to being diagnosed late last year with diabetes.

I humbly ask for your prayers. I'm gonna whip this thing and hopefully soon I will be back on the front lines with my fellow Freepers. Until then I will, in addition to becoming a cancer survivor, do everything I can to help George Bush be re-elected.

Thank you and God bless you all.

Prayers for your tough battle ahead.
Ask your doctor about Procrit - I believe it is a nutritional supplement for folks who have to go through these treatments.

You can beat it! My son beat it after being given two years to live. That was 10 years ago. Attitude is everything. The doctors told my son that his attitude made a great difference.

Prayers going up for you.

Both are fine now thanks mostly to the prayers of Family, Friends and Freepers.

Both are fine due to the loving touch of the Great Physician who answered the prayers of many. :-) I know that's what you meant.

May He now touch you just as lovingly - I will be praying. He delights in healing.

May the Lord bless you with strength to fight the fight ahead of you. May you accept the chemo into your body willingly and believe it is an army of crosses in your veins defeating the cancer. May the Lord grant you the peace and continued faith you need to stay calm and focused in this battle and the patience to know that He heals on His schedule and not ours. Finally, may the Lord bless your caregiver with strength, faith and patience as you become a survivor.
