  • Prayers for Farmer Dean who is starting chemo today

    Freepmail ^ | 05-22-17 | Farmer Dean email to another Freeper
    I am copying a Freepmail I got from another person for Farmer Dean. Farmer Dean, an all around good and likable guy, is starting chemo and more radiation for colon cancer today. I asked him if he wanted us to pray for him and he was very thankful and said yes. It is beautiful when Christians realize that prayers from other Christians, regardless of denomination, is a powerful thing. My mom’s been going to Mass for him and he has been so very grateful. Just a good guy whom I pray beats this through and through.

    She was at a friend's house, visiting for a few days. She has had Alzheimer's for over 6 years. She has not had any health problems other than that, but she is over 80. Today she had the classic symptoms of stroke, paralysis and drooping on one side, slurred speech, confusion, so her friend called paramedics and she is now at a good hospital. MRI has confirmed stroke. All her symptoms have gone, and she doesn't even remember why she is in the hospital or that she had a stroke. The doctors are still running tests. She is being given...

    I posted about a year ago asking prayers for my father, who had some back problems, and was facing surgery and long-time therapy. The time since then has been one of struggle for him. He has been in and out of the hospital numerous times, and each time he became weaker. He is now close to the end of his struggle. I got a call last night from the nursing home saying he had been taken to the hospital because he had no pulse. His heart was restarted, but he had two cardiac arrests at the hospital. He is on...

    My brother, Michael, passed yesterday after an 8 year long battle with cancer. His wife was at his side when it happened. He was comfortable and in no pain. I'd like to thank all of you who sent your prayers, thoughts, and good wishes to his family 2 weeks ago. Michael was a fine man. He leaves behind two children who are both in their teens. This is a devastating loss for them. He was a loving father and devoted husband. I've honestly never seen two people more in love with each other. I think the happiest I ever saw...

    Hey everyone. I'm kind of going through a hard time right now. I have a history of really nasty cancer in my family and I just got the results back from an ultrasound and there is a mass growing in the center of my body right under my sternum. I go on Monday for to schedule the CT scan to see what I'm dealing with. I'm doing a pretty good job of keeping a brave face up in front of my family but I'm an anxious mess. I was born Catholic but have since lapsed but I do try to...

    A very close friend of my daughter was born with a hereditary liver disease. She was lucky enough to have a transplanted partial liver from a living donor in December, but has had many problems. She is now awaiting a new liver for transplant. She'll be 29 in a couple weeks. I am beside myself with worry. I am finding grains of hope in hearing about deaths of others, which is probably sick and twisted thinking on my part. I am asking for prayers for her to be saved by someone's generosity in donating a liver that can be used,...

    The following prayer request is from a former colleague. She’s a dear person with a heart of gold: Asking prayers for my brother, Ronnie, who is having a pacemaker put in on Monday. He has had two heart attacks and has several stents I'm hoping the weather doesn't prevent me from going to Arkansas to take him to Little Rock for the procedure. What a week this has been! Seth has the flu and I'm taking care of him while Tammy works. Have a blessed day.

    Freepers, I need some help and prayers. The future daughter-in-law of a close friend was in a bad car accident late last week. By the grace and mercy of God she was not as seriously injured as orignally thought. However, the treatment she has received from the hospital she was taken to has been deplorable at best. She was air lifted to McLeod's Hospital in Florence, SC on Thursday February 9. She was admitted to the hospital that afternoon, and was left in the cervical collar the EMTs put on her until Saturday (it had dried and caked bodily fluids...

    Dear FRiends, we are in the path of the Oroville Dam should the auxiliary spillway give way. We have a son-in-law who works at the dam, and a son who works at a nearby dam and family friend who works at the dam our son works at.It has been pretty much concluded that the failure of the auxiliary spillway is a foregone conclusion. Probably before the next rain hits on Thursday. That would actually be a blessing in disguise. The lake level has been dropping tremendously and a failure would actually release less water if it happens before it rains.Please...

    A lot of you will remember freeper Lilyramone in TX whose little daughter Sophia has had a lot of medical problems in the past 3 years or so. The family had moved from CA to TX and it seems had the boom lowered on them when they arrived. They've been going through an awful lot and it hasn't let up. I hadn't heard from her in ages but kept praying and checking her FR profile to see if she'd posted and she hadn't and worried more. She has written now and asked for the prayers for Sophia to continue as...

    My neighbor Melanie, has just been diagnosed with lung cancer. She is about to undergo very aggressive treatment which will, of course be debilitating, and will probably cause her to lose her job as a home health aid. Her lifestyle is one which I know many FReepers would disapprove, but this is Massachusetts, after all, if you catch my drift. Here's the thing. I told her I have a vast network of conservative FRiends who will start praying for her! Would you agree with me in prayer for healing, both body and soul, and that she will have a revelation...

    Friday morning, just after midnight as I was turning off the TV from watch a movie on Netflix, I felt a sudden pressure and pain in the center of my chest. This pain went through my chest to my back and a bit in my left upper arm. There also, for some strange reason an ache in my right elbow, and later radiatingup my back to both side of my rear neck. I woke my girlfriend who is an RN. She took my blood pressure which is usually normal, but this time was 189/129. The next important number was 911....
