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,
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.
Libertina...we join in praying for your father.
Prayers up for a fellow FReeper.
You're in my prayers.
Have people forgotten how to park .... drive .... signal ... be patient?? Most likely not ... 'tis only my perspective at the moment .... *smile* ... oh, kayak ... you are truly in my front pocket .... closest to my heart.
I lost mine several years ago, still .. I feel his gentle hand on my shoulder almost every day. *hug*
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.
Prayers for kayak!
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.
Sunday night prayer bump for tomorrow....
Sleep well, Kay. We love you.
Very early morning *prayers* for our kayak ... off and about ... keeping you with me all the way ....
Bump for news and PRAYER PRAYER PRAYER!!!
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.
Late afternoon left coast time BTTT for prayer.
Love ya Kay...
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!
Logan's Prayer Warriors, kayak has put up an update in #216 on where stuff stands right now. Please continue to pray...we've all seen the power of prayer in Logan, Emily and SO VERY many others.
kayak...we are HERE FOR YOU!!!! You've got SO many friends who love you dearly.
Surrounding you with prayer, kayak.
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 that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint."
You continue to be in my prayers.
Prayers continue for you dear friend. God bless your medical caregivers and you.
Weapon you say?
I know this little guy usually fights the enemy, but in this case, he's fighting for you,as we all are. That's a prayer bazooka.
Prayers headed your way, sweetie.
Prayers up for you, kayak....my thoughts and prayers will be with you this week as you go through your tests...
God bless you..
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.
God Bless You!
Morning *prayers* for our kayak ...
And more and more, from the left coast...
trussell, thanks for the ping, I have been away from my computer.
Kayak, May the Lord's Healing Virtue touch you today.
The Lord Bless You,
I'm sleeping in the mornings...but am a nightowl. I'd say with all of these different time zones going on, Kay's covered 24/7.
Jesus, please, be with Kay...
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".
Oh calypgin....what a beautiful post, for a beautiful lady.
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!!!
Prayers for both of you, dear hearts.
Thank you ISB, for the ping, and for your faithfulness. Thanks BG for keeping this thread active before us...
...and kay, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers constantly. We do pray that the treatments prescribed will be precisely what God has in store for your healing, that each one who ministers to you will be an instrument of God for your blessing.
Thank you for the update!
Kay and you have my sincerest & most-urgent prayers for healing, strength and comfort and guidance to the team of doctors. The Prayer Warriors here at FR are the BEST and have comforted many of us who have faced difficult medical times.

Please pray for them.
Prayer for a successful surgery and that she can be home with her family on Christmas!
Prayers on the way for both of you.
My prayers that all works out well. God Bless!
