Let us pray for 3 year old Jonathan, who was to start chemo on the 30th for brain cancer, and his grandmother Tina, who is raising him. They were on the way home from Virginia and Tina had a rollover crash that set off the airbags. Both Tina and Jon are hospitalized 250 miles from home, and the car was totalled. We have no idea what she will do now.

Mel

We can do this!

Michelle....the reason you can't find November thread is because (I just checked) this one is tacked onto the October one but no matter.

Continuing to remember your 2nd cousin in prayer and that the Lord intervenes and makes all things possible for him.
Also praying for Heidi and her family. PTL she is strong in faith.

Our legal lady is hopeful that the house sale will close by the end of the coming week....that could be the best news we've had in 2015!! Thank you all for your many prayers.
Praying for Joseph who will have his cortisone shots on Dec 5th. This is quite a complicated procedure and done under local anesthetic. Please God it takes away the back pain and he can also fully get off the morphine patches without anymore trauma.

Praying for the other requests listed too.

I got unsubscribed from my threads and now can't find a November Prayer and Praise thread, so am posting an update on my young 2nd cousin Chris here:

The fluid on his lungs was biopsied and they found a fungus which means that his transplant could be more complicated. It seems that, with healthy lungs, they can do a liver transplant with a half-match. But in his current state he will need a full match and none of his siblings so far can provide a full match. They're still waiting to hear about his oldest brother who is serving in the military. My cousin Laura posted this news on Thanksgiving and sounded discouraged. So please pray for her and her family.

Also, I learned that a former student of mine, Heidi, has inoperable pancreatic cancer. She is standing on her faith in Jesus our Healer. She and her husband Andreas (they met at Bible school) have 4 children.

Blessings, Michelle

Good to hear from you Carole and glad you're doing alright after your surgery now.

Janet...praying for Leah & Mitch house sale...I know it's a waiting game.
Also for Kevin...for the Lord to keep him over the winter time.

We're still waiting to hear from our legal lady about whether our house paperwork is acceptable to the other lawyer and client. We've been waiting since 22nd October...sigh.
Thanks for your prayers.

Carol glad you are doing so much better! I remember how much better things were for my Mom after she had this surgery.

Please keep Leah and Mitch on your list for them to sale their house. Also add Kevin as we are coming into the winter season and we don't need him to get sick.

In the 3 1/2 weeks between my cataract surgeries, I haven't been able to read or work on the computer without a lot of eye strain, so I apologize for not being here much. However, I've been praying for all of your needs. I'll start November's thread shortly, so please add your updates there.

I never realized how big a blessing having cataracts would turn out to be, but the surgeon implanted Toric lens in both eyes, which corrected my astigmatism so that I don't need glasses for distant sight. I'll be able to get prescription reading glasses in three more weeks, but over-the-counter reading glasses work well for now.

Pray for Mel. She last night that she is in the hospital with chest pains, shortness of breath. They are running tests.

Thanks Janet and Michelle for your prayers. Sometimes it is harder for the mother to see her kids going through problems! Both are working things out.

Michelle...no more news yet but I keep checking my emails! I'm not sure if the perspective buyer has to be consulted by her legal lady too...she's in the UK so that would mean more time, although it's probably all via emails. I'll update when I hear.

"Chris is out of surgery. It went well. They took out 30 percent of left lung. Hopefully he will get well enough now to get that bone marrow transplant!"

Thanks for your prayers re the house...we haven't heard anything since but I checked the agents website and he's posted UNDER OFFER on our house. He's not supposed to do that unless a reservation deposit has been paid. We haven't heard from our from our legal lady either.

Chris is scheduled to have 1/3 to 1/2 of his lung removed on Tuesday, October 20. The spots have just not gone away. After he recovers from surgery, he'll have chemo before he can have the bone marrow transplant. They've sent kits to four of his brothers to test for a match.

His mom, my cousin Laura, is very concerned of course, but also a little relieved that they're moving forward. She's also very thankful for the lead doctor on his health care team.

Thank you for keeping him in your prayers.

Blessings, Michelle

Great news, Janet! May this be the ONE!

My cousin's son Chris is still in a holding pattern. He can't be prepped for a bone marrow transplant until he shows no signs of pneumonia. He still had some spots on his lungs at his last test but goes back tomorrow.

And thanks for the prayers for last week's travels and the retreat I attended. It was very restorative and fun, too!

As predicted no damage was found on the 2nd MRI, so we thank God for that...so the damage is muscle, ligaments etc and will take a rather long time to settle.
The consultant has sent him another appointment for beginning of December and will look at doing a couple of steroid injections.

Yesterday we had a call from the estate agent in Spain about the house which still hasn't been sold. He has a buyer, we've agreed a price....please God the woman goes through with it and doesn't back out, like they're prone to do. I'd be grateful of your prayers.

Thanks Carole...we didn't get home until 8.30pm...

Well Joseph had his appointment yesterday. Had his MRI but unfortunately it wasn't low enough to the area of pain. So he had to have another one. Fortunately they had a cancellation so he had it before we left the hospital. The consultant said he's thinking it's severe whiplash and will need to have pain management. Hopefully the consultant will ring tomorrow with the results of the 2nd MRI but isn't expecting it will show any damage. I'll update when I hear more.

Please list any requests, praises or updates that you may have so we can join together in prayer . . .


Elayne (SASSYSAX)
10/5 - My sister Denice is having shoulder surgery tomorrow sometime. Please keep her in your prayers. She's an RN and is 10 years younger than me.


Mel (MEL27P)
10/4 - I got home from walking and found Andy on the floor. He is 334 pounds, and flat on his stomach, and could not move....Nothing seems to be broken, but he really scuffed and bruised his right knee....He is in his lift chair now. I am just praying that I can get him up and walking when it is time for a nap.


Michelle (ZELLAZM)
10/4 - Please lift Michelle up while she is on a "Time of Refreshing" retreat in Switzerland this week.


JanetR (REYNJANET)
10/1 - Leah was accepted today for a position at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs!!! A much better position with better hours, benefits and room for advancement! The realtor also called today and said that the couple that looked at their house 2 weeks ago wants to see it again and is considering it. Please pray that when they look at it Saturday it is exactly what they want!!! And also keep Kevin and me in your prayers as this is the first time our "baby" has moved so far away from us!


Janet (JANETELIZABETH1)
9/28 - Joseph continues to be in a lot of pain since the car accident. He's due to see the orthopedic consultant on the 5th October and will also have an MRI at the same time so he will get the results straight away.


Michelle (ZELLAZM)
9/28 - Thank you for the prayers for Chris. I believe he's 19 or maybe 20....He is at home and taking some heavy-duty antibiotics. He is supposed to have a bone marrow transplant when he is finally able to beat the pneumonia. He also needs to put on some weight....One advantage of having so many siblings, is there's a good chance of a bone marrow match in the family. They won't start testing till they're actually ready to do the surgery.


Nellie (NELLIEC)
9/27 - I did finally get the results from the kidney doctor's office. As I suspected the results are favorable and they didn't feel under time pressure to get me to treatment. I do NOT have kidney disease!!!

9/8 - Update on Leah and Mitch. She has accepted a position in Denver and will be moving out there around Sept 24. Not the one she really wanted and she is still being considered for it but she felt she needed to take this one and get to Denver. Their house still isn't selling but they are looking for someone they know to stay in it and "rent" a room so it is taken care of.
