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!

You and your Mom has all my prayers and good thoughts. I am so happy about your baby...

Being a grandmother myself (in fact, I just got home from my youngest granddaughter's 2nd Birthday party)...I am SURE that kayak will feel a LOT better, once she holds little Abby the first time.

Congratulations to you and your family, poppy...prayers and best wishes for all of you.

Kay...prayers that you will make that trip next weekend...what a wonderful trip to look forward to.

God Bless you all...

I'm so happy to hear that your Abbykin is home and thriving, ps. PTL!
How are YOU feeling? Did those itches go away?

Prayers that your treatment goes well this week, Kay, and you'll be able to make the trip to meet your new sweet grandbaby soon.

Late "afternoon" *prayers" for our kayak and her poppyseed and her new babe ...

I stay quiet about my personal life, most times .... the last five years have been heartbreaking beyond measure .... truly beyond any measure I could have imagined ....

But lately ... certain events ... certain people, I have met at "random" ... are pulling at me ... making me think tomorrow's not so bad ... I've a young fellow across the street who knows how to fix my truck, and he's doing it because he "worries" about me .... Old Soul likes him .... which is all I need to know ...

I am rambling, here .... it's just I see, clearly, God's Hand in my life .... when I wondered if I was too low on the list .... I am learning he has no list .... I wanted these miracles earlier .... but they were graced to me in His time ... still, they are not Ka-Boom things ... but gentle reminders of the everlasting gift, which is life .... where it takes us ... or for so long ... our duty .... not only to our Lord ... but to those around us is to rejoice .... and embrace that we are here, now ....

Hi dear one... and you've been in our thoughts and hearts for those long years. We've worried and prayed about you and so pleased and happy that you are posting again.

Thanks so much for sharing your heartfelt thoughts, you do it in such a wonderful way.

"I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield, and the horn of my salvation and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;

...as for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proved; he is a shield to all those who trust in him. For who is God save the Lord? Or who is a rock, save our God? It is God who girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect" Psalm 18:1-3, 30-32.

Keep looking up!!

Hi kay... continuing to uphold you in prayer; trusting you will have God's perfect peace and be free from pain and any side effects of treatment... and for Herb as well.

poppyseed... and for you and the baby we give thanks to our God for His great love and compassion. May you find peace, joy and contentment in God's great gift.

Okay ... here is what I am picturing ... it's late afternoon and YOU, kayak, are taking a nap on your poppyseed's bed, new Grandbabe safely tucked on your chest ... quiet moments ... good moments ... lasting moments ....

Let it be so, in Your name, sweet Lord ...

Safely home from a wonderful weekend .... the new baby is just perfect! Poppyseed is doing great and is rightfully quite proud of her newest offspring! Not that a Grandma is prejudiced ... :-)

Also, I had my last radiation treatment today so now can work on regaining some strength before chemo starts.

Wonderful news, Kay.

Both that you got to see your new grandgirl...and that radiation is over...

Prayers for the baby and her parents, for a long, happy life.

Prayers for you, sweet kay, that the chemo works it's magic, so you can spend many, many hours spoiling your new granddaughter..
