Prayer Request for a Dear Freeper [prayers needed for kayak - update in #1,145 ]
FRmail | 12-14-06 | Brad's Gramma

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,
Amen!

Prayers for the new addition to the family, for poppyseed and for kay.....been there, done that when it comes to radiation and chemo. And...the Lord does use it as a sifting mechanism. I trust Him now more than ever....whatever He wants, He gets!

Lots of love and prayers coming your way, Kay! May God bless you and continue to unfold to you His precious plan for your life.

Love --Pat

I forgot to add ...*prayers* to our kayak that you continue to have *faith* beyond our understanding .... I am thinking you could not "be" there with poppyseed and this broke your heart ... but you were .... you were and this you know beyond any doubt ... kay ... you were.

I worry that you worry about your business ... and I *pray* the Lord gives you peace .... you have only one job ... LOL! ... Look at me ... detailing the Lord's plans .... but surely you know your first job is to be well .... I have run a few businesses in my life ... and never once into the ground. I tell you what ...

Can I e-mail you my address? .... Maybe I can help .... believe it or not, I'll drive down there, if you need me to ... I would bring Old Soul, of course ... I can run an office, Kay ... never doubt it ... and I speak Spanish and I work hard .... even harder for you.

What an extraordinary offer but then you are an extraordinary person! Hubby has hired an assistant manager so he is devoting nearly full-time to my care ... and couldn't be more helpful ... strong and sensitive.

In the meantime, through the wonders of the internet and a wonderful office assistant, I am able to get my work done ... another blessing of thr Lord in this!

But I am greatly touched by your offer, Dear One!,

You are right in that it broke my heart not to be with my poppyseed yesterday but I knew the Lord was with her and that consoled me. Just talked with her and she sounds good ... is sore but doing well and is entranced with her new daughter ... ;-)

The wee Abbykin and I came home Thursday after her birth by c-section on Tuesday. She's a tiny smidgen of a thing, weighed just over six pounds when we left the hospital (my smallest baby yet), twenty inches long. She has a head full of dark hair that shows signs of being curly later on, like her two year-old sister's is. She has my husband's mouth and my nose, and seems to be a pretty blend of each of us. She's a very placid baby and, as I suspected before she was born, very much a night owl. She's fine and healthy, and I'm doing pretty well. I'm not comfy posting pics of her here for general public consumption, but for those of you with whom I've had off-board contact, I'd be happy to share a picture or two of her if you'll email me (or even freepmail me).

Word on the street is that, depending on how things go with Mama's treatment this coming week, she and Daddy will be popping up for a visit with their new grandbaby next weekend. Hey, prayers that she is able to safely and comfortably make that trip would be greatly appreciated - I would sure love to see my mama.

Such good news ps. Our prayers have been answered for a healthy child.

Prayers continue for your Mother, our dear friend, Kayak. I know she will do everything in her power to make the trip to cuddle her newest gc.
