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".

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.
