Prayer Request for a Dear Freeper [prayers needed for kayak - update in #1,145 ]
FRmail | 12-14-06 | Brad's Gramma

Posted on 12/14/2006 7:50:21 PM PST by Bradís Gramma

I received a FRmail tonight from Freeper kayak regarding a health issue that her doctors have discovered. Some of you, apparently, are already aware of this. I DO have her permission to put this thread up. She will not be on here to respond as she's still working and will be starting treatments.

Anyway, from kayak....Several weeks ago as part of my routine annual physical I had a chest x-ray. When it came back showing some suspicious shadows, the doc ordered a CT scan which also showed the shadows. So last week I had a bronchoscopy and got the results on Monday.

I have lung cancer. The good news is that of the 2 kinds I have the least aggressive kind and it can usually be removed surgically. The bad news is that because of the location of the cancer it can't be gotten to surgically without doing damage to parts I need.

So I'm facing a regimen of chemo and radiation probably. Monday I have an appointment with an oncologist to begin planning how we're going to attack this thing.

Please PLEASE pray for kayak!!!

Dear Lord God, our hearts are heavy tonight with this news from kayak. She is a dear lady who loves you with all of her heart. Thank you for giving her so VERY many prayer warriors, thank you for giving her a WONDERFUL husband who has been nothing but 100% supportive of her.

Lord, I pray for a "Logan Miracle". Lord, please heal her body. Please guide the medical personnel who will be helping her through this. Please give her YOUR peace. Peace that passes all understanding.

In Your Name,
Amen!

Dear Kayak...My father has just been told of shadows on a recent Xray. You are both now in my prayers. May God give you strength, protection, and perfect healing.

Prayers for your father and your family, Libertina. I was told there are many harmless explanations for shadows on x-rays. My your father's turn out to be among those.

Thank you both, it's humbling - and good to know we are being kept in prayers. My dad is important in my life, I was little when my mom remarried and he adopted me as his own. I thank God that he had that much love in his heart for a little girl. Jesus, thank you for your amazing blessings.

An afternoon *prayer* for our kayak ... I think it is close to 5 in the evening by you, kayak ... I hope all the prodding and probing and questions are done for the day and that you can simply sit next to your husband on the couch and have some quiet time.

I know your mind has been filled with worries ... from business to family to the holidays ... to Christmas ... and so my *prayer* for you, this day, is one of my very favorites .. "Be still and know ...."

Just this evening, dear friend ... be still and know ... there isn't a single situation which lacks a solution ... not one ... This is so.

The oncologist I saw today is a real go-getter who is very impressive. He is leaving town on Saturday for the holidays and he wants things to happen before then; so before I go back to see him on Friday, I will be having several tests done (including one at 8:00 tomorrow morning) and be seeing 3 different doctors. It's going to be a busy week for me but I am grateful that finally the ball has started rolling. This waiting has been excrutiating.

Hopefully, by Friday we will know exactly what we are facing and how we are going to attack it.

Of course the first weapon in the attack is prayer and I am grateul for all of yours!

Kay, I love your fighting spirit. We're in there fighting with you, and I ask that all the resources of heaven that you need be poured out to meet all your needs during this time of testing (dual meaning).

Lord God, please release all Your healing resources for Kay and be waiting at each station along the way with all the provision she needs; let everything be ready for her when she needs it. Touch her medical team to see the road YOU have laid out for them, and bring them into complete unity with Your knowledge of what course to take to heal our Kay. Let no one veer to the right or the left, but lead them all together in Your straight and level path.

Fortify Kay's body now and through all that she will be doing. Keep her strong in spirit at ALL times. Set a guard around her so that no fiery darts of doubt or worry can get through. Fill her with faith for a full healing and let that faith stick to her like glue.

I speak to every unhealthy cell in Kay's body: your days (hours) are numbered and you must die and pass away out of her system, leaving behind no remnants. I speak total health and well being into Kay, in Jesus' Name. I speak divine strength into Kay.

Father, keep her friends gathered around her and let only edifying words come out of their mouths. Most of all, let her feel Your holy and healing presence with her day and night, till the shadow of this thing is past and she walks on the sunlit uplands once again.

Thank You, Lord, for Kay's life, which I bless.

Excellent news that this doctor is a go-getter! Usually the best ones are go-getters, IMO.

Prayers continuing for good news!

they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint."

Lord we pray for kayak and libertina's dad. That you will heal their cancer. When they undergo treatments, we pray that you sustain them and keep them healthy, shield them from pain during radiation, and the side effects of chemo. Thank you for keeping your hand on them. Make them healthy soon, Amen.

My prayers are with kayak.

Years back, when I was *active* on FR forum, I used to wake early, hit all the news sites, enjoying my first couple of cups of coffee, get fired up, and determine some of what I had read was important to post to FR, and would arrive to find kayak had already posted *most everything worth knowing* here. Her contributions to FR are beyond calculation, her dedication to the country she loves...

My prayers are with you, kayak... you are - not to be likened to Shawn Hannity's platitude - a "great American".

Any news, Brad's Gramma? The thing is, I do not want kayak to feel pressured in any way ... but if it is possible to be more direct in my *prayers* .... more specific ...

What in the world am I saying?!

As if He doesn't know ... as if He is not ... All ...

*sigh* .... I've a long row to hoe ... and that's fine with me ...

Never mind, Brad's Gramma ... I'll just go to my kneeling stool and thank Him that it is all in His Hands and offer up greatful *prayers* that things are not in mine ...

kayak ... you're loved .... surely you see this and know it and use it for strength.

From Mr. Kayak - Kay and I have had a whilwind week that began Monday with a visit to our medical oncologist and was quickly followed by batteries of different and intensive tests, followed by visits to specialists in thorac surgery, radiation oncology, and pulmonology. The verdict is in and is difficult: Kay has stage 4 lung cancer that has metastizied into her pelvis/hip bone, her adrenal glands, and into her brain. This has been almost devastating and the only thing that has preserved our spirit is the many prayers being offered on her behalf and the faith we have been given in our Lord and Savior. This morning we learned that our physicians want to remove the brain tumor surgically and quickly and we admitted Kay to the hospital today for surgery in the morning. She is in room 9922 at Charlotte Medical Center and the hospital phone number is 704-355-6813. If anyone choses to call tonight, I'm sure she would be grateful. If not, then we know you are praying and we are counting on those prayers. We see this surgery as a positive thing in that it is our first counter-attack against this demon that has invaded the body of the love of my life. We will not be likely to post again for a few days because I don't think we have connectivity at the hospital. With a good outcome, Kay will be home sometime Christmas Day. Our thanks to all you freepers for your support!!!
