Skip to comments.Prayer request for my mom
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.
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!
