Skip to comments.Prayer Request: Very Sick Mom
Posted on 08/31/2007 9:02:55 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat
I've not mentioned this much on the board, but she has been fighting cancer for several months now. Her body is weak; she cannot swallow because when she tries the liquid goes into her lungs.
One doctor says he sees little hope in continuing chemo (a general practictioner), but the oncologist says even though she'll always have the disease, she can get back to a normal life.
Right now she is preparing to have a hospital bed at home and dad will be "feeding" her through a tube in her belly. But she's even had trouble keeping that food down; she has been throwing up even the pablum they feed her that way!
Chemotherapy has weakened her body, but has also helped slow the cancer's progress. Those of you who've battled this know how it can be.
Anyway, she vacillates of course with moods...and my dad, several states away from us, is doing a yeoman's job in trying to take care of her.
One lovely thing: she is a woman of faith, a follower of Christ. She does have friends who come and care for her, too...so the Lord's hands and feet are around her!
I certainly believe God is sovereign, and I also know He hears our prayers.
Please join me and pray for "BJ".
Prayers up for your Mom, your Dad, and you.

Lord, with you all things are possible. Please give strength, comfort, and healing to B.J. Please guide her doctors and caregivers. And please, Lord give strength and peace to B.J.'s husband, and to her children. We pray especially for our friend R.D., that You might provide peace and strength that overcome physical distance from B.J. In Christ's name we pray. Amen.

Not fun at all. My prayers for your mom and for you and your family. Lord, heal and strengthen her body and place Your Peace in her heart. In Jesus name, Amen.
Prayers for her comfort and for peace for her, and for her family going up right now. We go through suffering when coming into this world that we do not remember. Perhaps we must go through suffering going into the next, which will be forgotten the minute we reach it. Praise be to God. He is forever Faithful!
I’m so sorry. Prayer sent.
Prayers sent up for your mother, and all involved...
God bless, and stay strong in His word.
Have mercy, O God, on the desire of RD’s heart ... may BJ soon be restored to the family in health sufficient to enjoy her days. Touch her, that she might tolerate nutrition ... bless her, that she might be restored ... encourage her with the Assurances of Your Word, for You have promised to meet her all her needs according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19. Thank You, Gentle Shepherd, that this afflicted lamb is one of Your own, and that You will tend her and provide for her with the most loving care.
Strengthen RD’s family as they undertake for her health, knowing that the Great Physician now is near, the sympathizing Jesus. Amen ...
R.D., prayers for you, your Mom and your family. I’m so sorry to hear this.
I will pray for your Mom, Dad and you. Remember that the Lord’s mercies, They are new every morning; Great is Your Faithfulness.Lam.3:23 May the Lord Bless your parents, you and the blessed caretakers that minister to you. in the Love of Jesus.
Prayers for all of you.
Prayers for your mom and the family. It was a year ago that my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It’s tough on everyone. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Lifting B.J. to our Lord in my Bedtime Prayers, and will Remember her in Prayer in the Coming Days.
So sorry to hear that your mother is suffering. I will keep her, you and your family in my prayers. May you feel God’s love surround you and your sweet mom.
RD, you might want to visit the Life Extension Foundation web site. They have a lot of good and reasonably up to date information on both main stream and alternative approaches to many health problems and it's all backed up with technical references. You might find some useful ideas there.
Prayers lifted for your mother.
Prayers for you mom and also for your dad. It takes courage to fight cancer and tremendous strength to care for someone you love who is so ill.
Prayers for your mom and family.
I pray in the Name of Jesus that she be restored to complete health.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
So sorry to hear your mom is suffering. Our dad lost his battle with cancer and we know how comforting prayers and encouragement will be for B.J.’s emotional & spiritual strength. You might want to have your dad check to see if there is a “Hospice” program near their area?
Many prayers lifted for you & yours.
Prayers for your Mom, RD...
and for you, as well.
Hang in there!
prayeres, up to your family. Take care.
Prayers up, RD. I know what you’re going through as my Dad is in a hospital bed at home, too. He has lung cancer and they’ve stopped all treatments because the doctor’s have lost hope. But we keep the faith.
Take care and God Bless.
Prayers for your precious Mom.
Prayers for BJ, and a 'hang-in-there-buddy' to your dad. As a dad, he's probably got the shoulders to carry the weight. Most do, and my heart goes out to him, too.
Please watch over BJ as she fights cancer.
Please comfort her and her family with the
peace that passes our understanding.
Your will be done.
In Jesus Holy name.
That road is tough. My prayers for your Mom and family.
