Wanda, this is a difficult time for you and your family. We will put you in our prayers and try to keep strong.
It must be hard with your husband's illness, but you must remember to make some time each day for you, or you will be no help to anyone else.
Try to get some rest, drink plenty of water and eat lots of fruit and veg, to keep your body working hard.
hugs

Please forgive me, I started a new topic (new to this) but wanted on the prayers requests forum.
Hey, I am Wanda, 57 years old and 275 pounds. The
weight has been a issue since 3rd grade. I am a compulsive overeater, food addict. Most recently my husband was give a prognosis from his oncologist that
he may have only 12 weeks to live. This was seven weeks ago. I don't believe everything the doctors say, but my life has been in chaos, especially the eating. I am committing slow suicide myself. Please pray for me and my family.

Thanks,
Wanda

Thanks Mona, he has really had a few days that were not good. Last week he had that chemo treatment for the virus he has in his blood called HLH. he developed sores in his mouth and back to ICU he went. They gave him medicine for the sores and this interfered with his liver medicine and caused an overdose of Med's in his little body and this caused a seizure and has left him week on one side of his body. This left him a sick boy once again for a few more days. he is bouncing back and his liver is still working fine. His red blood counts are down and he will be getting platelet's tonight. He had his 3rd round of chemo last night. A virus called Histiocytosis has caused all of this. Anna

Please continue to pray for Preston and his family. They started him on a chemo drug for this HLH in his blood. Yesterday he developed sores in his mouth, so he and his parents are now in ICU till they find out what are causing the sores. They did test, but may not have results till Monday. His liver is doing doing good, but he will need more blood today or tonight. He is really getting down in the dumps the past couple of days. Anna

I'm adding this because Anna sent it to me in an email:

My brother called from Virginia today and ask for prayer for their grandson. Preston woke up last Sunday morning with a fever, by evening he seemed to be a bit better. Monday he woke up complaining of a headache, his Mom (Jasey) kept him home from school. Tuesday he felt better and he wanted to go to school, so he went, but the school called later in the afternoon and said he was jaundice. They took him to the ER, this was hospital 1, they couldn't find out anything wrong so they sent him to another hospital, the 2nd hospital had him taken to The University of Virginia hospital today by ambulance. Tonight Ren called and wanted to know what type of cancer our daughter had when she was younger..the doctor's are trying to find out what is going on and so far no answers. His platelets are very low so he was getting a blood transfusion..once he is transfused and a little stronger they will be doing a liver biopsy. This is their only child. Pray for Preston, Jasey his mom. Matt his dad and Jody and Ren and their other set of grandparents.
Thanks so much,
Anna
..I will update when I know more.

I'm going to add a request here...my aunt and uncle have an adopted daughter...who has had a sad history of drug abuse...having 2 children as a result of her choices and not being able to raise either of her sons because of it. We received a prayer request from Ellen and Ralph to pray for Nancy who was in ICU and not doing well. I called to find out why she was there...she was hospitalized for kidney failure...it's better now, but not good. She has Hepatitis C/stage 3 and multiple mental issues. I am asking prayer for her...but also for Ellen and Ralph who seem to be the ones who are expected to care for her. Ellen is 70 and Ralph is 71 and just had a quadruple bi-pass heart surgery earlier this year...he is the one who has assumed the burden of dealing with Nancy....who really needs to be in an assisted living place...she requires daily care for just about everything. They are the ones who are taking care of her 5 year old son...her sister has the older boy.

Please pray for rain in California. We need it badly, but the Weather Service doesn't expect any before New Year. My friends who ski are fretting about the lost ski season -- I'm more worried about the low levels in the reservoirs.

Thanks!

Just want to thank all for prayers for my SIL Yollanda - The LORD chose to heal her by taking her to heaven.

Please pray for my brother and 2 kids. My brother is totally lost as she took care of everything.

I'm posting this prayer here...because I think we all can pray it and feel the meaning:


Father, I Have a Problem.


It's weighing heavy on me.
It's all I can think about,
night and day.


Before I bring it to you in prayer.
I suppose I should pray for those
who are less fortunate than me--

Those in this world who have
hardly enough food for this day,
and for those who don't have
a roof over their heads at night.

I also pray for families
who have lost loved ones
in sudden death,
for parents whose children
have leukemia,
for the many people who are
dying of brain tumors,
for the hundreds of thousands
who are laid waste with
other terrible cancers,
for people whose bodies
have been suddenly
shattered in car wrecks,
for those who are lying
in the hospital with agonizing
burns over their bodies,
whose faces have been
burned beyond recognition.

I pray for people with emphysema,
whose eyes fill with terror
as they struggle for every
breath merely to live,
for those who are tormented
beyond words by irrational fears,
for the elderly who are wracked
with the pains of aging,
whose only "escape" is death.

I pray for people who are watching
their loved ones fade before their eyes
through the grief of Alzheimer's disease,
for the many thousands
who are suffering
the agony of AIDS,
for those who are in such despair
they are about to commit suicide,
for people who are tormented
by the demons of
alcoholism and drug addiction.

I pray for children
who have been abandoned by their parents,
for those who are sexually abused,
for wives held in quiet despair,
beaten and abused by
cruel and drunken husbands,

for people whose minds have been
destroyed by mental disorders,
for those who have lost everything
in floods, tornadoes,
hurricanes, and earthquakes.

I pray for the blind,
who never see the faces
of the ones they love,
or the beauty of a sunrise,
for those whose bodies are horribly
deformed by painful arthritis,
for the many whose lives will be taken
from them today by murderers,
for those wasting away on their death beds.

Most of all,
I cry out for the millions
who don't know the forgiveness
that is in Jesus Christ...
for those who in a moment of time
will be swept into Hell
by the cold hand of death,
and find to their utter
horror the unspeakable
vengeance of eternal fire.
They will be eternally damned
to everlasting punishment.

Oh God, I pray for them.

Strange....

I can't seem to remember
what my problem was,,,,,,

In Jesus' name I pray...Amen!

This morning around 3am, there was some really bad tornado damage just a few miles away. 2 dead and several houses completely destroyed. I knew some of the families. Please pray that they are able to get their lives restarted. Most of them were not injured so that is a lot to be thankful for.

A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.

My sister in PA lost her house, and I'm here in CA with absolutely no way to help. I don't have the money to pay off their mortgage and I did the only thing I could to fix the economy by voting. I so wish there was more I could do. Please pray for her, her dh and their kids.

Thank you for the prayers! Yolanda is amazingly still in critical condition, on the respirator and not improving, but PTL still alive.
It has been 2 1/2 weeks!
Most days the doctor tells my brother that she won't /can't make it - but he is trying to keep the faith that GOD will provide a miracle.

We are asking for the highest good of HIS will and wisdom and comfort for the family.

I'm requesting prayer for my SIL Yolanda. She is in ICU with pneamonia. They put her on a ventilator and have her sedated to keep her blood oxygen from dropping more. She is critical and may not make it.


She has had Lupus for many years so her lungs are not fighting as well as normal lungs.

My brother is so scared. I hear it in his voice. I'm in Ohio and they are in Washington state, a long way. I think 2,400 miles. Please pray for him and their kids.

Yolanda is only 50 years old. Praise GOD, they came to Ohio to visit just before she got sick and I got to be with them. Her one doctor thinks she picked up a virus on the plane ride. Said the air is recirculated and lots of people in a small area breathing each others air.

She loves the LORD and I know HE will do what is best for her, but it is hard on the family.

Thank you for lifting her up.

To all my dear Spark friends,

My wonderful dad joined my mom in heaven yesterday morning. He was 88 years old.....and according to most everyone he knew or did business with, one of the nicest people they had ever known. I am proud to be his daughter.

He went peacefully and calm, with me and a couple of his dearest friends at his side. Going to heaven on the Lord's day surrounded by love and prayers, not such a bad deal.

Thanks again for everyone's prayers and concern,

Carol

Thanks so much for all of your kind thoughts and prayers. I appreciate them more than you can know. Just when I thought things couldn't get much worse, I got word earlier this evening that my Aunt Margaret (Dad's only sibling) passed away this afternoon. I know I need to tell my dad, but I'm not sure how....

It may not be on my diet, but I think I might need a drink by tomorrow night...

Carol - I'm sorry about your Dad. Please be careful and enjoy the time with him that you have left. I'll be praying for both of you.

Just an update on my mom. She is out of the nursing home and back at home with Dad. She is not being as active as we would like, but then she hasn't been real active in years so I guess we can't expect more. She is still complaining of some pain but is able to walk with just a cane so that is great progress. I'm thanking God for all she came through and that she is able to be back at home!

Carol, prayers and good thoughts to you and your dad. You be with him while you can, dads are very precious.


Thanks to all who sent prayers for my friend Jeanette when she had her heart attack. She is up and well, didn't need an operation, thank goodness. She had a build up of fat in the arteries and they did some kind of 'blasting' and she is on the mend. Obviously now she has to watch what she eats and do some gentle exercise, and as her dh says, her tongue never stopped working!!lol

I am heading back up to North Dakota again this week. My dad is losing his battle with pancreatic cancer....don't know how long I will be there, but I know that I want to be with him right now.

We were also one of the areas that got hit by the remnants of Ike, we didn't get rain, but we had winds approaching 70 to 80 miles an hour! We only had a few medium size branches come down off our big trees....none of them hit anything. Lost power for a little over a day....we are SO lucky to have it back already, as some folks in our metro area may be out for as long as a week. Before we got the power back I was thinking that I was probably going to have to pack dirty clothes to go on my trip.

Sue, We will say a special prayer for your friend Jeanette and her husband. Saw my mom today for the first time since everything started. She looked better than I expected, but really doesn't seem to have a lot of will to get up and around.

Count your blessings!

I send prayers for your mum again Vicky.
Please will you pray for my dear friend Jeanette, who has had a severe heart attack. They have told her hubby, she will make it this time, but has to have complete rest for next couple of months,and will need to change her lifestyle.She is 59, both her parents just dropped dead with heart attacks when in their 40s.

Update on Shayla

Phone rang at 8 this morning and Shayla's heart rate dropped, she was born at 10:45 am on July 9, 2008. She was 4 pds 15 oz and almost 17 inches long. She came out kicking and screaming and at 5:15 tonight they started her blood transfusion and she did very well with that. Thanks for the prayers and keep them coming. Toni and Craig are both doing fine. Anna emoticon

Posted this on the chat thread, but since the original message was here, I'll post here as well.
Mom isn't getting out tomorrow after all. Today the Dr. found another spot near one of the drains mom has in. emoticon He told her he would give it another day or two and if it wasn't better he would have to open it up to clean that out.

Count your blessings!

Anna - We are going to put God in control of those Dr's hand tomorrow morning as they work with Toni and little Shayla. Think how much you love them and how much vaster is God's love than ours!

The update on my mother is good! The Dr. came in yesterday and talked with my sister. He said that mom is doing really well. He said that she will probably be released from the hospital to the nursing home on Thursday, but that if she keeps responding to the antibiotics, she may only have to take them through the IV for TWO weeks instead of 8 and then be switched to pills. If that happens, she will be able to go home. That means she would be home by the time we go to visit. Isn't God good!

Count your blessings!
Vicky

Thanks Anna - And we will pray for your're family as well.

Kathy - Thanks for your prayers and for being so thoughtful as to add the MRSA info. Being in the school, we heard so much about it last year that it was terrifying to hear those words, but I also had to look it up and get the facts. Fortunately, they have found other antibiotics that are successfully treating it in most patients. Prayerfully, my mom will respond well too.

Count your blessings!
Vicky

Vicky...I will be praying for your mom...and I'm adding some information here about MRSA...in case someone else is as ignorant as I am about it.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a type of bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics. These antibiotics include methicillin and other more common antibiotics such as oxacillin, penicillin and amoxicillin. Staph infections, including MRSA, occur most frequently among persons in hospitals and healthcare facilities (such as nursing homes and dialysis centers) who have weakened immune systems.

MRSA infections that occur in otherwise healthy people who have not been recently (within the past year) hospitalized or had a medical procedure (such as dialysis, surgery, catheters) are known as community-associated (CA)-MRSA infections. These infections are usually skin infections, such as abscesses, boils, and other pus-filled lesions.

HERE'S THE REQUEST FROM ANNA:

Need prayer for Toni's Baby daughter Shayla and our whole family. I took Toni to Pittsburgh this afternoon and Dr. Thomas ended up admitting Toni to the hospital. Seems the antibodies were starting to attack Shayla's red blood cells plus Shayla had some fluid in her belly. Toni has received one shot of steroids and will have another shot tomorrow afternoon at 4 and they will be taking the baby after that. We are looking at Wed., but it could be sooner. Shayla's weight right now is 4 pounds 7 oz. She is 2 oz. less then I was when I was born with problems. I have already given this child from the time she was conceived to God to look after and I know He will be there through all of this.
