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!

poppyseed and her family came to visit this past weekend. It was good to see them all again. The newest member of the family is such a good baby -- hardly ever cries and only when hungry or needing a diaper change. The older kids (ages 7 & 8) were their sweet selves and were very helpful, especially with the 2 year old. It was a very good weekend and we praise the Lord for this time together.

I'm feeling pretty good under the circumstances. The combination of brain surgery, steroids, and radiation has left me weak and badly swollen in places. The Jabba the Hut look from my swollen neck is not very flattering. Every time I try to come off the steroids, I get nauseated and yet the meds are probably the main source of the swelling and weakness ... a real Catch 22.

Well, I will pray that you will be able to come off the steroids without nausea.

God is faithful!

Hear our prayer, O LORD, for your dear child, Kay, and release her from the need for the steroids. In the Name of Jesus, who is the Christ, Amen!

Bless your heart.

I do know what steroids can do to the body...sometimes you wonder if the cure is worth it, right?? LOL

Seriously, my DIL is having to take steroids for a breathing problem she is having...and she says she feels better, but her jeans are getting tight..and she is debating if she wants to keep taking the medicine.

In your case...I would definitely NOT worry about a swollen neck...that will go away soon, I just pray that it happens soon.

Don't over do it...be kind to yourself, because you are worth it.

Prayers for you my FRiend...

Psalm 22:24 For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from him; But when he cried to Him for help, He heard.

Isaiah 63:9 In all their affliction He was afflicted, And the angel of His presence saved them; In His love and in His mercy He redeemed them, And He lifted them and carried them all the days of old.

Continuing to pray for your full healing. Bless you.

Kay,

I miss your beautiful prayers on the Pray for President Bush thread. You are in my prayers each day and I am confident that the Lord is providing for you and that He is strengthening you in many ways. It's wonderful that you could spend a little interlude with your family and celebrate the precious moments of life. May He continue to supply everything you need and may you enjoy certain victory and good health in Jesus Christ our Savior.

Faith

Hi everybody -

Mama's in the hospital again. The swelling she was experiencing was due to pressure on the vena cava by the tumor on her lung, and she was beginning to feel, from the pressure of the swelling, some constriction in her breathing. She and Daddy went to the hospital to have this seen to. She's on some meds and the swelling in her neck and face have gone down some; she'll probably be released tomorrow during the day.

If y'all could say some especially big prayers for her, I'd appreciate it. This hasn't been a great week for her, anyway, and then this new thing cropping up - she could really stand some BIG prayers on her behalf. Thanks and love to all of you.

When I saw it was you who was pinging me, poppyseed...I was so afraid to even look, to be honest with you.

I have kay in my heart all the time, and pray like crazy for her.

I am so sorry to hear about her bad week, and now this...

Okay, I will send some heavy duty prayers up for her..and for you, and your family, that God can bring you comfort and strength as you wait for your Mom to get better.

God Bless and keep kay and her family...

Dear sweet kayak I'm praying that Jesus will strengthen and bring healing to your body and make it whole again.

poppyseed, I'm also praying that the Lord will comfort and encourage your heart and the rest of the family's. God is still on His throne, and King Jesus is still mighty with healing in His hands....I'm paying that Jesus will touch your sweet mama just now in his matchless name.

((Hugs)) and continuing prayers,
