Posted on 11/25/2006 5:35:32 PM PST by dripp
I come here often and read and get much enjoyment and knowledge. I dont post very often so I may seem like a stranger. My wife was diagnosed last Tuesday with with a 2 inch tumor in her lung that is probably cancerous. We would sure appreciate any prayers that anyone would be inclined to send up. She says isnt afraid of dying but doesnt really want to leave our girls yet. She is only 49, way to young.
Prayers for your wife and family.
Prayers sent for your wife and you and for your family.
The Lord be with her and your family.
we went to one dr today and he said the results came back positive for cancer and probably inoperable. Dont know anything yet about other options, got more dr's coming up. Thank you all so much for the prayers, they mean alot.
Praying for you and your family.
You have my prayers. May our Lord Jesus Christ heal your wife. I am asking for a miracle. He who asks shall receive. Amen.
Let there be no doubt: we all will stand before either the seat of judgment, or that of awards.
There is no doubt that every knee shall bow, the question is before which seat will your knee bow?
We'll keep you in our prayers.
Prayers for your wife and family. Thanks for bringing this to us so we can lift you all up to the Lord.
A little late, please be assured of my prayers for your wife's health and recovery and for you both. God Bless.
May G-d heal you and keep her with you and your children for many years to come.
We go tommorow and hopefully we will find out some options. Once again, thank you all for the prayers and support. We have had an outpouring of support from family and community also. While this is of course stressful for my wife and I, our girls aged 20 and 17 are really struggling, but being quite brave.
Father God, Maker of all things and Ruler of all creation,
we don't know who this FReeper's wife is called, but You know.
You know every hair on her head.
You are greatly to be praised in all the world for Your blessings and Your miraculous powers, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In faith we lift up to You this mother, still in the prime of years,
for total healing and remission of sins and of any appearance of illness.
First, I pray for her complete salvation, and that of her husband and family.
Then, I pray that they open their hearts to Your wisdom,
and that they manifest a renewed devotion to Your ways and Your Word.
May she and all her family look to Your Word for Your promises,
and hold Your promises in their hearts, believing.
With faith, all things are possible.
I ask these blessings in the Name of Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Absolutely. I am praying right now.
Joining in with prayers.
Continuing in prayers for your wife and you.
Well the thorassic surgeon said he still thinks it is unoperable, but they may know of some other surgical option at the James Cancer Center in Columbus,Ohio so we are going to ask for a 2nd opinion. On the better side, they said they think it will respond to chemo,radiation or a combo and at least shrink it for awhile. Still appreciating all the prayers.
I just want you to consider something: doctors are just like regular people. You can ask two knowledgeable people about a problem and you'll get two different answers. I personally like a doctor who is willing to throw everything at it and get results. Follow that up with a heaping load of prayer. I will continue to pray for you and help you through this with prayer.
God is love. - 1 John 4:8
Prayer bump. Each step along the way is sounding more hopeful for you and your wife. Prayers continue.
praying for your wife and your family. God Bless you all.
Prayers up for all of you, and especially your wife's healing.
Father, in the Name of Jesus I ask for healing miracles for this lady who has much to do yet in this life. Make your face to shine upon her and let your presence surround her. Thank you Lord, amen.
We have appointments with the James Cancer Center in Columbus,Ohio one next week, antoher the week after.We decided we wanted to go with the best in the area rather than mess with the locals. Thank you all for the prayers and please continue they can find a solution for her.
Amen.....let it be so.
Please, keep us posted. Prayers up!
God please show mercy for your wife and may He comfort you and your children.
well, the news isn't good. The cancer has spread to her other lung and surgery if definately not an option. Standard chemo and radiation is the only course, no clinical trials of any type for lung cancer currently offer any hope, they give Donna 15-18 months tops. We arent giving up, but it is harder to put one foot forward today.
I'll be praying for you and your family.
My condolences and prayers Dripp. Make the most of what you have and we'll all hope for a miracle.
We'll always keep your wife, you and your family in our prayers.
thank you everyone. We are not giving up by any means, she started chemo this week, no sickness from it yet,just not much appetite so she is drinking supplements. One of the side effects seem to be bouts of pain in oddball places, we confirmed this by talking to other chemo patients. WE seem to be at the acceptance stage right now. We would like to wish you all Merry Christmas.
Prayers continue for your wife and you.
Merry Christmas to both of you.
Just to let you know that I am thinking of you and your wife and keeping you in my prayers.
Just letting you know your names are being brought before our Creator for his kind consideration...
Praying God will heal your wife and, give peace to you and the family.
The God of All Peace comfort and establish your hearts by grace, through Jesus Christ, His Son, the Beloved, in Whom we are Accepted.
Lord, show Thy Rich Mercy.
just wanted to post a short update. Things have settled down enough to where we find many moments of joys in the day now, we contribute that fact to the many prayers from friends and online friends for peace of mind and healing, thank you all. Donna has started chemo and seems to tolerate it decently. She does have some nausea for a couple of days, but thanks to a fellow Freeper we are going to try starting meds a couple of days before to see if this helps,thank you CDHART. Again, thank you all for the many prayers.
Thank you so much for the update bump!
Donna started bleeding from her lungs last Sunday and spent till Wed in the hospital,it was a result from the chemo taking her blood counts to low. On Wed she went into full respitory arrest and agreed to be put on a vent with antibiotics to try and help, but with the option of being taken off if it didnt work. She was doing great when suddenly Friday night the vent plugged up with a clot and she they lost her completely for 20 minutes.She had signed not to have cpr, but to have only comfort care,yet they worked with her trying to clear the vent and finally got a new tube in but she had been completely with out oxygen for 10 minutes flatlined completely and not pulse. They gave up and went out and were doing the paper work for the time of death when the monitor started going wild and she had a pulse and her heart started again and she started breathing again. She was completely unrespsonsive with her eyes and her hands were posturing so they told me she probably had massive brain damage or more probable brain dead. Then the new tube plugged up on the vent and I had to decide the most horrible thing. They unhooked everything and just administered morphine for comfort. You can just not comprehend the agony and yet I felt worse for my children. They gaurnteed me I did the right thing as the brain damage would be great. She suffered greatly taking every breath for about 3 hours. Then around midnight she became responsive to touch and new who we were, but couldnt communicate by talking. Around 4 in the morning she became alert and I told her what happened and she wrote a note asking if she was dead. It took a kiss on the cheek to convince her she wasnt. At 6 in the morning she got her voice back and wanted to talk to the kids. By 6:30 am she was drinking a diet pepsi. She has no brain damage and is breathing on her own with only oxygen. The whole medical staff is flabbergasted, the have her written down as a documented miracle. Even the most hard core were crying with joy. We are giving all credit to Jesus and even the hospital is admitting the cannot deny this. I dont know what the future holds but we have our precious Donna for now. The dr wants to start radiation as soon as she build up strength. I know this is still touch and go but I cannot express my joy and kids joy for more time. Donna is on cloud 9 praising God to everyone she sees. I know this isnt well written but I am stressed and going to take a shower and try to relax if possible Please keep all prayers coming ..Shawn
Praying for your dear wife and you. Keep the faith. May you feel God's love and concern for your wife and you.
Praise the Lord!!!
And here you stand, praising the Power of Almighty God! Amen.
Lord God Almighty, thank You. Please don't let anyone forget ever or ever deny Your Power at work in and through Donna, in and through Shawn who was made able to bear it, these who love you and love one another so. Jesus - Thou Art Glory! Be Glorified more and more and more as these days progress! Lord, especially to and for the children, that they also may be able to bear up under all things by Thy Power and with Faith and Hope in Thy Name: Thy Name Is Love, the most powerful force on the earth (evil cannot defeat it).
Nothing can separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~Romans 8 and beyond
Refresh now your servants Donna and Shawn, and fill them for the next wave of power, that they may stand, and give You Glory regardless of how You choose to Move. We are vessels only: By Thy Matchless Grace, fit for Glory. Thank You Lord Jesus Christ, Elohim, Spirit of Life, the Holy God, Powerful Love Moving, amen.
Prayers to your wife and your family during this difficult time. Hopefully it turns out not to be cancerous.
