Abigail Mitchell | 177 comments For Starters If anyone would like to pray for this.
My sister Susanna is Currently having Surgery, she would be thankful for any prayers she can get.

Margaret Metz | 17 comments I do {raises hand}! My brother-in-law has cancer. They found a tumor the size of a softball in his abdomen. It is inoperable so he had to have chemo - and he was allergic to it (almost died twice) and it hardened his lungs. He went from 97 to 47 on his lung function test and now can't use that form of chemo anymore. The worst part is it didn't shrink the tumor at all. They are being seriously tested - my sister went through a battle with cancer in her throat (thyroid) just a couple years ago.

Also, my husband's company has decided to downsize. We moved out here just over a year ago to take this job and now we have to leave again. We have a house back in KS, but it's rented until March and we'll have to sell this house and still pay for it and try and find a place to live until then - plus pay for storage . . . And to put the cherry on top -- we'll be making about 1/3 less than we are now and they will not pay to move us. So, very big salary cut, no place to live, only a month and a half notice, and more expenses. Oh - and no savings because we had no job for over six months before we moved out here.

I really appreciate your prayers.

Praying for wisdom for the doctors and healing for your sister.

Aerykah Praying for y'all & your families. And, most important, for God's will.

I would really appreciate prayers for my great aunt Belle. She has cancer & just recently found out that it's worse than they originally thought. Her dr. say she needs surgery now, but the specialist says that, due to previous medical problems (she's still recovering from a recent stroke), she might not survive the surgery. Please pray!

Margaret Metz | 17 comments Praying for Belle. You know I can relate to cancer and loved ones. I pray the Great Physician heals her, takes care of every detail, and comforts the whole family.

Aerykah Thanks, Margaret :)

I will definitely be Praying.

Abigail Mitchell | 177 comments My sister Sarah fell on the lane (which is gravel) and scraped her knee pretty bad, we will be going to camp for a week starting Monday and there are a lot of steps to climb while there (since it is in the Mountains) pray that she will be okay. Thanks!

Abigail Mitchell | 177 comments @Margaret - How is everything going? I am still praying.

Praying for your sis & for camp. Hope camp is great and accident-free! :)


message 14: by Margaret (new)

Margaret Metz | 17 comments Abigail - praying for your sister. That sounds very painful. I pray she heals quickly and that you both enjoy camp very much.

My brother-in-law is still doing pretty much the same. He hasn't had any new tests to see how effective the new chemo has been, but he's sick and of course all the worries and money problems still apply. They are having problems in their relationship brought on by all this stress too.

Our situation has gotten worse. The company told us they were looking at downsizing his entire district sometime in the future, that's why we looked at the new job. They started the lay-offs this past week and my husband was the last hired - first fired. It was ironic really. We also got a letter from the company president the same day about what an awesome job he was doing as one of their top performers and how it's people like him that made their company as great as it is and that kind of thing.

The new job we thought we were going to get had a little stalling point. Some of the higher board members (it's a much smaller company) liked him but thought he should have more experience in their area of specialty. So he has to do another face to face interview with a panel on the 25th.

In the meantime we have no benefits and he's looking at other options. Sorry I wrote a book. Thanks for your prayers.

She's not doing very well. She had a stroke a few months before they found the cancer and lost some speech & movement. She had made some progress in those areas, but she is now losing the progress she'd made (hope that makes sense). Due to the stroke & some other health issues, her health isn't good enough for her to have the surgery.

She is in bed all the time & hasn't had much of an appetite. She asked her siblings (they all live in Oklahoma) to come see her in California and that kinda worried them because they had a brother die of cancer in 2009 & another brother has lost an ear to cancer.

Aunt Belle is asking people to pray for God's will to be done --- whether that means healing or going Home. We really appreciate everyone's prayers.

Sorry to hear that. I will pray for her -- for God's will AND His healing touch for your whole family. I know when something like this is going on it hurts more than just the person who is sick. {hugs}

Aerykah Thank you so much, Margaret. :)
[hugs back]

message 25: by Margaret (new)

Margaret Metz | 17 comments I have an update on my brother in law. He is still fighting the cancer but we got some good news. Praise God his cancer has shrunk to about half the size and they are considering whether they can step back his treatments/stop them, or do surgery. Pray for them to have wisdom.

My husband was laid off. He has an interview today. He's looking into lots of jobs but this is very promising. Please pray that we would make the right decisions and all the details like housing and moving would fall into place.

Connected with all that is we have no insurance. We both have chronic illnesses so it's a major expense plus I had to go to the ER last night (I had a CAT Scan and everything) and may have to have surgery. I should find out this week. Please pray that I won't have to have the surgery and that we will somehow be able to afford all these medical expenses.

Thanks :o)
