Please pray for an old friend of mine. He was recently diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, thought they got it all with surgery and radiation, but it's come back.
Naomi is the sister of my cousin's boyfriend. A few months ago she bent over to put a plug in an electrical socket and heard a “pop,” which led to an MRI to confirm a compound fracture in her spine, which led to surgery being scheduled, which led to pre-op testing that found cancer. A lot of cancer. Stage 4 metastatic melanoma that had already spread to her lungs, bones, pelvis and now her liver.
She was doing better just a couple of weeks ago but has taken a sudden downturn and right now family is rushing to try to get to the hospital before she passes. Please pray for a miracle if possible, for her departure to be gentle if that is what is to take place and please pray for her husband and son that they will find comfort in the future.
Please pray for my Gramma. She'll be finding out soon is she has breast cancer. After watching my Grandfather go through everything with his meds and surgeries and still dying of cancer last October, she says if she does have breast cancer, she's just gonna let it take her, not fight it.
She has posted here infrequently as MMomofMany and her name is Mary. I met her through this post http://www.mothering.com/discussions...light=nebraska when her newborn was taken for her refusal to have state testing.
She was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer 6 weeks ago and has progressed to where her heart is surrounded by fluid, she's been on and off a respirator and the cancer is in her spine and liver. The doctors' only hope is that they can keep her alive for at least 7 weeks to deliver her baby. Her family is still praying and believing that God can work miracles.
The online group I spend most of my time with is devastated and we are praying for her. Would you please join us?
Here's a link to the most recent posted update I have found. http://gettingdownwithjesus.blogspot...-get-down.html
A friend of mine has been keeping contact with a person at the mission that Mary & her husband started. I will update as I can.
Thank you and please spread the word.
This was from this morning http://harvestnow.blogspot.com/2009/...ya-update.html
And here is the obituary information (her name is on the right hand side, Mary Anaya) http://www.bramanmortuary.com/
Thank you for your prayers.
I'm going through a lot of family issues on both sides, totally unrelated to one another.
I'm just hitting the point where I'm totally overwhelmed by all of it, and more or less powerless to change any of it, and it's really hurting me.
I'm just feeling really alone and helpless right now.
jamie. crinkly (not quite crunchy) mama to 3 amazing little girls, an awesome little boy, and a baby girl making her debut at the end of this summer.
Found this old thread and hope you guys will send out some prayers, well wishes or any other sort of warm fuzzys to help my family out.
We had a tornado in April and the insurance company will not settle with us. Our house was totaled but dosnt look bad until you notice the foundation is cracked and the roof is all messed up amoungst other things that just lead to a totaled house...so they are trying to say there is nothing wrong. Anyway...we are involved in a lawsuit and this is all getting very long and drawn out, this Mama is about ready to crack. We really really need to be able to move on with our lives. I am homeschooling two little girls as well. We are sending in our discovery questions very soon and I really really need them to settle. We are living in a camper in the dead of winter because not paying us out for additional living expenses like they are suppose to and I just cant see doing this any longer. Please Please Please pray for us and for them to give in and pay out.
Catholic Mama's (as well as anyone else who would like to join) will you please join me in saying a Novena to St Therese (shes special to me as I took her name at my confirmation)
"St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore and tell him I will love him each day more and more."
The "rules" of this novena are to say it for 5 days
say the above prayer plus 5 Our Fathers 5 Hail Mary and 5 Glory Be's each day.
They must be said on 5 successive days before 11 am
On the 5th day offer 5 more sets of the our fathers, hail marys and glory be's
I know novenas are a lot of prayer but we really really do need to be done with this and I so believe in the power of prayer. If you cant do a novena with me please pray in any other way. This means the world to me thank you!!
I am not Catholic so I don't say novenas, but I will be praying for you and your situation. I pray that they settle soon and you are able to get your family into a more comfortable and practical setting.
