Posted on 10/09/2005 7:34:01 PM PDT by baseballfanjm
My mom has been in the hospital with a respiratory infection for almost a week, and we learned today that doctors have found cancer. We don't know what type at this point (I don't believe it's at all related to the infection), or how serious it is, but the news was devastating. In addition, she has to battle this respiratory illness, which has been bad.
I'm praying constantly, as are the rest of my family. Cancer has killed two of my aunts and my grandfather, and this news hits everyone in my family hard. Relatives are coming to visit from all over the country, and I'm really thankful for it. We need family right now.
Please, pray for my mom.
We're all going to just put our trust in God and have hope that things will work out
I apologize if this post isn't coherent, but my mind is numb right now.
Prayers up for strength for all involved, please keep us posted on your Mom's condition. Many blessings to all.
Prayers for you as well as your mother. May the Lord provide the healing she needs as well as the fortitude and faith, strength and compassion needed by you and the rest of the family.
In His Name we pray.

Oh Mary conceived without sin pray for baseballfanjm's mom
Let me say that I and my entire family are so grateful for all your support and prayers. I have no new updates on my mom's condition, but I'll try and keep you posted. I do know that the current priority is beating this respiratory illness as fast as possible. The toughest thing is that the hospital my mom is at is in Boston, 50 miles away, so I and my sisters and brother haven't had the most oppotune chances for visiting her, since she has often been sedated. My dad has been driving almost contantly between home and Boston, and this has all been especially hard on him.
Please, keep praying, and God bless.
Prayers for Mom! Prayers for the family, too!
Thanks for updating us...
Prayers continuing...ever & ever.
Prayers going up.
I'm so sorry you're going through this rough time. I'm sure you are a real blessing for your Mom, and you'll provide strength and comfort for her. There's just nothing like a daughter! Take care of yourself, stay positive, and keep us posted.
Prayers offered for her and for you also.
Not that it matters a whole lot, but I'm a guy. :)
Anyway, I won't lie, I felt much better today than I did yesterday. After the initial shock, I do realize the blessings; my family, the fact that my mom is in good medical care, and that she has numerous family, friends, and others who care who are praying.
I'll continue to stay hopeful, and I ask the rest of you to keep praying. God bless.
Did I give you a giggle? I hope so.
a prayer bump
And for you and the rest of your family for strength and God's guidance.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen. (The Memorare, Prayer of St. Bernard to Our Lady)
Dear Baseball...Your dear mom and your whole family are in my daily prayers.
God comfort and strengthen your family and shelter your Mom under His mighty wings...Holy Mary, Mother of Our Lord, please intervene on behalf of this mother who is needed and beloved by her family, as she struggles against this attack from within. And if it be Your will, O Lord, give her the victory.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your mom, you and your family. I lost my MIL two years ago after her battle, I hope and pray that your mom's fight will be successful!
Lone, Mrs.Lone & family
Just another prayer BUMP for your Mom and you and your family...!!

Well, word from the doctors is that my mom is on the early road to recovery from her respiratory illness, which is the first step getting fully better. Any positive news about her condition is good.
Prayers for you Mom.
Hang in there and contact us if or when you feel low.
baseballfanjm, I pray that Jesus surrounds your mom and all her family with the healing white light He freely gives. Thank You God for the strenghth You give us. Thank You God for the Love that heals. We trust in You. You gave Your life for us. Thy will be done. We are mere mortals have mercy on us. Amen
Well, some more info today:
Just so you all know, my mom was initially hospitalized with a very small blood leakage in the brain, and kept at the hospital with her lung illness, and in treating the lung illness the doctors found cancer. At first, the doctors were concerned that the blood leakage was cancer related, but we learned today that they no longer believe so. They still don't know what caused the leakage (which was minor, but was causing my mom to hallucinate and cause faintness), and there isn't %100 certainty that it isn't cancer related, but that's the belief.
They believe that the cancer is on the lung (which I hadn't known before), but the hope is that it is isolated and contained to one lung. Doctors are working on the best treatments for when she recovers from her respiratory illness, so we'll be praying some more for a fast recovery from her illness so that doctors can get to work on the cancer.
Thanks again for all the prayers and good thoughts. There were so many potentially worse pieces of news that we could've recieved that we're all sort of relieved that the news today, considering the circumstances, was good,
A long overdue update:
Thank you all so much for your prayers. My mom celebrated her 49th birthday today, at home and in good health.
She is, amazingly, without cancer. I don't know what happened, but the doctors rushed their diagnosis, and for some reason that baffles us informed us for fact the she had cancer, even going so far as to assume that the blood pressure related stroke-like occurence was evidence that it had spread to her brain. I can tell you all now, with great thanks and happiness, that my mom has no cancer. However, she nearly did die in the hospital, a fact the doctors didn't inform us on, and we only learned when my mom was released a few weeks ago.
It took me so long to update you all because of the after effects of the hospital stay and the illness on my mom, which were a horrible mental trauma on her. I got wrapped up in that, and numerous other things going on.
As it stands, she had a life threatening case of pneumonia that nearly did kill her. She said afterwards that she could feel the prayers being sent her way. Believe that or not, but I do believe it. I believe that all the prayers sent my mom's way did save her.
I thank everyone who prayed, or even just thought of my mom.
Praying for your mom, and for you and your family...
Prayers on the way. I'm so sorry.
That's great! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Merry Christmas to all!
