Post by: Lala'sMom on June 29, 2006, 12:22:13 PM
We've all been here before.  So please just take a few minutes and tell everyone your prayer request and I feel certain that there will be someone here praying right along with you.

Dear Lala's,

I would like a prayer for JA.

**************

JA Posted: Thu Jun 29, 2006 6:40 pm    Post subject: Flooding in NY  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Just wanted everyone to know about the flooding we had in central New York. Most of it came as flash floods with major damage to the area. I live in Delaware County which is right between Albany and Binghamton. Binghamton area got it worse than we did.

I just got my electric back and the computer is on the 2nd floor so my dh said it would be okay to use. We need an elctrician to assess the damage done to everyhting else. I can't wait to get water and phone. WE went from dry to a housde surrounded with 3 feet of water in 10-15 minues. I truly understand what a flash flood is now. Within another 20 minutes we had 2 feet in out living area. The water in the house has receded, but it is full of mud and has an awful stench. We had no time to put stuff up, so who know what is salvagable yet.

Roads are washed out, bridges gone, and an apartment collapsed. I think this site has some pictures if you want to see some of the damage.

www.dailystar.com

So, please be thinking of any Monkeys in this area. I haven't posted much lately, due to the lack of news, but was pretty active earlier on and in the chat room when it was up.

Please pray for my friend, Steve.  He is going thru radiation right now at Emory for a rare form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma.. for the second time.  He is young, creative, talented and I have known him for years (barbershopper).  I saw him last nite.  He looks good (he's bent because he said I look better bald than he does ) and is gearing up for a stem cell transplant probably the end of July.  He'll be in the hospital for 5-6 weeks.  

None and her hubby.

All the monkeys in need .... and aren't we all?

Natalee and her family.

SSD's student, Cullen, and little Sydney.. being treated for rhabdomyosarcoma (a particularly nasty form of children's cancer).

Along with all other requests, keep our family in your prayers.  Dad, 89, just was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, after a fall at home sometime Saturday 6/24.  He broke no bones, and had just a few bruises, but doesn't remember it.  We need guidance and strength to get through what's to come, for his memory will inevitably get worse.  He's strong willed and very independent.  Has been told he can't drive and has tried to start his car the past two days.  I have the ignition keys, and my dh and bil made it 'not work', but it's going to be a battle until we can get it out of the yard.  I am on vacation, and we've been rotating time with him.  But will get more difficult as time goes by.   When the roles are reversed, you don't know what to do....it's painful, and I've had one of those acid kickback stomaches for a few days, now.

Thank you, and know you all are in my thoughts & prayers.

Peaches:  I will pray for your friend Steve.

2NJSons_Mom:  I am praying for your Dad and you and your family. You have to get his car out of the yard ASAP. If he can't see it, he will forget about it, just like he forgot that he fell down. When parents get dementia, it's very difficult to deal with. They have been strong and protected you and now the roles are reversed and you are strong and have to protect them. You are in what is called the "Sandwich Generation." You are in the middle, caring for children and caring for parents who have become children. There is a good book called "The 36 Hour Day," a family guide to caring for persons with Alzheimer's, related dementing illness and memory loss in later life, by Nancy L. Mace and Peter V. Rabins. The book helped me a whole lot with my mother.

Please pray for my friend, Greg Don Jones, age 58. He was strong and vibrant and then he came down with a strange condition and he has been in and out of the UCLA Westwood hospital for the past four months. The doctors have no clue how to treat it. They have tried many meds but nothing has helped. His condition continues to escalate. The next step is that they are going to branch out into oncology meds. The only thing the doctors know is according to the medical journals, this condition has only been seen in 2% of the WORLD's population!


Title: Re: PRAYER REQUESTS - Please list here
Post by: 2NJSons_Mom on July 01, 2006, 12:19:30 AM
Louise, yes, I agree about getting the car out of Dad's yard, and said so the first day.  I no longer drive, due to an inherited eye problem, therefore, I cannot do it all, like I used to.  Dad does not know about my eyes, because I chose not to tell him...Mom had the disease, and he worried enough about her.  I can only do what I do and rely on those who can to help.  It's still gut wrenching.

Thank you, and I will have your friend with the rare illness in my prayers.

Prayers for all monkeys, those who request it and those who do not because we all have our needs, some more foreboding but we all have unanswered prayers or unrequested prayers since we did not ask for them, and I try to pray for all who come our way.  Hugs, monkeys.  I thought about you in my prayers today.

Hey ya'll.

I've been mostly lurking, but need some prayers for my step-dad. He critically ill in ICU isolation. Admitted last Wednesday afternoon because had chills, low fever and couldn't get his breath. Fiday was moved to ICU. Saturday was moved to ICU isolation. Sunday was put on ventilator. Although had oxygen mask on Saturday night, he was perky and joking with us. During the night he went into crisis. He is currently stable, but in critical condition. Because of long holiday weekend, we are still waiting for many of the test results.

I don't want him to go like this. He is, of course, sedated and not conscious with the ventilator. Also, lots of blood coming from many places, but they don't think it's cancer. He has COPD, also.

Thanks for remembering us. I probably won't be on for a while.

Post by: Sleuth on July 03, 2006, 10:07:08 PM
LV - I will pray for JA and for your friend Greg.

Peaches - saying prayers for your friend Steve.

2NJ - prayers your way for your father and your family.

Memphis - hang in there - prayers for your step-dad but also for you in getting through this difficult time.

And, like Tylergal, I will say a prayer for all monkeys that may not have voiced their needs.  Hugs to all of you.


Title: Re: PRAYER REQUESTS - Please list here
Post by: memphis on July 14, 2006, 12:33:05 AM
Thank you Sleuth. I really appreciate it. We are not much better ~ still in ICU and still on vent, but he now has trac. Also, been on dialysis 3x because they blew out his kidneys with the mega doses of steroids, etc.

I think the underlying disease is pulmonary fibrosis, which is serious in and of itself; however, I think what caused the major crisis was the pulmonary lavage they did on Friday. Of course, no one will ever admit that or even mention the possibility. I know I sound bitter towards the medical world, but I think it's because I know too much.  :? Anyway, we are unable to get any response from him. That is the really sad part. I keep thinking it's because his body just cannot handle all of the Dilaudid they keep giving him. Nurses???

Hey, I've also honed my internet searching abilities since hanging with ya'll.  :wink:  I've found out all kinds of information about the lung doctor. Just had to be sure he was a good one. He is, although somewhat arrogant.

Anyway, thanks so much for the prayers. Would you please say another? Thanks!

I hope this link works:

http://i.euniverse.com/funpages/cms_content/2529/4candles.swf


I don't post this kind of thing often so you knnow it has to be a good one, LOL!!   :wink:


Please remember me in prayer for my health as it continues to be pretty lousy.  This heat and UV rays are just making me so ill with the lupus and now have a strange rash which is classic for that sun exposure but can't figure out how to care properly for my dogs and stay out of it.  Finances could be better, too.  My children's father has been a total disappointment in that regard and is involved with another woman now despite that we are Catholic I do expect they will be married soon which is fine but seems to make his checks to me later and later.  I am not well enough to work at at real job so it is a problem.

Thanks!

Anna

Post by: Anna on July 14, 2006, 10:40:43 AM
Peaches,
My brother in law was successfully treated at Vanderbilt for non-Hodgkins and is in complete remission.   :wink: Took something experimental I believe.  At one time I did not think he was going to make it but you should have seen him dancing at my son's wedding now that he is in full remission.  In fact he looks better than before he was diagnosed with cancer.

My niece on the other hand is not doing well with her treatment for recurrence of melanoma so please remember her as she is in the process of being abandoned by her husband and has a twelve year old daughter.  She does not weigh a hundred pounds and is 5'6" so it is not looking good for her.

My mother is 89 and going to have to have the battery replaced in her pacemaker.  Last time they punctured her lung so please remember her.  

Also my son that only eats raw vegan is very thin right now and so much so I am again worried about him not getting enough potassium in this heat.  I am afraid one of these mornings he won't wake up.  He is anorexic mostly since his parents separated.  But he is in total denial about it and says the rest of the world is fat, lol!  Kids!  Can't live with 'em, can't shoot 'em!!   :lol: He is by far and away the brightest of mine with IQ just off the chart.  He AP'ed Calculus II without ever having had a course as it is not offered at his high school so go figure.  Too bad he isn't smart enough to eat once in a while and something besides lettuce/spinach and diet Sprite Zero.

Thanks again.

Anna, I am going to be praying for you and your family.  It sounds like a tough time for you.  I pray for strength and healing for you.

Memphis, I will also pray for your step father and your family.  I will also pray for the Drs and nurses to do the right things for his healing.

Post by: nonesuche on July 14, 2006, 11:22:34 AM
I regret I haven't checked this thread in weeks, each day lately just seems too demanding to accomplish all I need to do. I still set aside structured prayer time daily and nightly <a new good habit thanks to SM>, and always always pray for ALL of the monkeys.

Louise I will pray for JA and also your friend Steve. 2NJ I will pray for wisdom first for your father <that he will sense he must adapt to his new limitations> and for his protection from further spills, and for support for you and your siblings as  you traverse this large change.

Peaches, Steve is definitely in our prayers. He has the same disease a dear friend of mine did, who we lost back in the early 90's at age 38. Stem cell transplants were so new then, his came too late in his process to impact so glad to hear Steve's will arrive sooner. Also ponder we have Duke near to us, so if he would like to get a second opinion, we open our home to him and his family if we can help.

Memphis, I am so sorry to hear about your stepfather. I will pray that the doctors find clarity in his diagnosis and advance the best treatments for him, and pray for support and encouragement for you and your family. Many hugs to you.

Anna, you are always in my prayers for your challenges with lupus. As for your neice, just know 'active' tumors make patients lose copious amounts of weight with melanoma. It is a vicious cycle but if she has no brain mets then she could possibly qualify for the cutting edge program at Duke. So know she's welcome in our home if you think she would like to pursue seeing Dr Gollob. I will also pray your mother's procedure goes without event, and the pacemaker improves her health.

I've learned so much via this journey with Mr None's melanoma treatments, each week seems to present new challenges and so many of you monkeys have offered insight, advice, support and prayers. I can never thank all of you equal to those efforts, you have helped to sustain us more than perhaps you know. I was told within the first week that he could live for one week or possibly one year, I can only write that now, I didn't and couldn't at that time - it was just too painful.

We should know shortly after the 20th if what his oncologist suspects is true, that being they may have stopped the progression of the disease with the 50 radiation treatments and six weeks of chemo. So we pray and keep the faith her instincts are correct. Now comes the challenge of beating back the tumors so that he may qualify for Dr Gollob's program. A young woman we met the day we were at Duke with similar stage IV melanoma but no brain mets, is now NED - no evidence of disease. She and Peaches are our beacons now, we're reaching for what they have achieved and keeping the faith that we can. Thank you to Peaches for countless hours of sharing and caring with me  :D

We began this treatment track knowing several things, one that only 20% of all stage IV melanoma patients even respond to this treatment track; that there is no existing cure but only to buy time until one may emerge which is on the horizon for 2007; and that the full brain radiation would be costly and that many cannot endure the toxicity of such a rigorous treatment path.

Forgive the length of this for I wanted all of you to know, that against all of those odds, he is still standing. Much thinner having lost over 50 pounds in five weeks, also suffering memory loss and extreme fatigue and total loss of appetite, but he is still standing.

ALL of your prayers have contributed, that is my largest message, that the power of prayer does exist within our lives. I thank each of you for that first miracle, for assisting us in calling out to God for his help and support, and for also affirming to us how great humanity and faith can be in our darkest moments.

As always, pray for Natalee and her family.

Monkeys,

I am not trying to win or lose any friends over what I am about to post, and am passing judgment on anybody, but I feel I should let you know how I've been feeling because perhaps some of you have been feeling the same way. I apologize in advance for the long post.

I have been very distressed over the unrest among us in the past few weeks. Some have left, some have hurt feelings, and there are rumors of backstabbing and talking about others. This hurts me...

I hope that some of these relationships can be mended for the good of us all. Harboring ill will or distrust only hurts the one harboring those feelings and I hope that if any of you are harboring any negative feelings toward your fellow monkeys, that you can take a moment out and try to pray about that.

I have never been so personally invested in an online group like this before. So many different personalities are bound to clash once in awhile; that's what makes us all unique. There should be no in-crowd or favored group, and there should be no outcasts among us. We should accept each other as the people who have been working together to find out what happened to Natalee Holloway and respect each other's individual choices and preferences without feeling threatened or offended.

I remember we recently had 2 very moving prayer chains where the love and hope and thinking of others and their needs and trials they are facing were lifted up to God's will. I hope that in all of this, we can truly remember what matters in this life, a life that we only have one chance at.

I love you all and pray for you often!

Sleuth, I wrote this as much for myself as I did for everyone else, for it is so easy for me to go back to this kind of behavior and have these kinds of feelings. I work hard to have peace in my life today, because in the past it was nothing but misery!

My Dearest monkey friends:
  Thank you one and all for the prayers and sentiments. Id like to convey that aunt Fanny has passed on from her struggle with cancer.  She passed in peace and tranquility that she had not had for the past few years surrounded by those she loved. It was truly a blessing and I thank you all for I am sure your concerted prayers assisted in letting her pass on. May God bless and keep you all well and safe. I hope to sign on again next week once the funeral is over.   Sandy Leiva

Sandy-

Our sympathy is with you and your family at this time, and you will continue in our prayers. I am so very sorry she suffered at all and feel sure she has great peace now.

This is a poem that has been a comfort to me at times, I hope it may be of some small comfort for you in honor of your beloved Aunt Fanny.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

When my Dad died far too young in 1985, I had this poem framed and displayed next to his picture.  It really has helped me accept his death, and I *know* he is always with me.

For my cousin Sharon... she has been struggling with a disease that isnt' curable... and unknown.  She had been living near family which helped, but not she has been moved to Texas where she is alone.

The disease is a form of vertigo... she is so dizzy all the time that she is unable to stand, shower, do anything we take for granted on her own.  She is the most kind person too... please pray for her.

Also for Kacky Lacky's family, Magnolia, South Ga Girl, JanFolkArt, KKail's grandson, and all those monkeys I am missing... monkeys with illnesses that we miss and don't see much of...

I'd like to pray for hardships Klaas and Lala have at this moment, I won't go into detail except that I'd like for us to pray for strength and resolution for both families.

As always, I would like to pray for Natalee's return to her family, for resolution and closure, and for justice.

I'd like to pray that Peaches continues to gather strength and success in her battle over cancer, and that she continues to remain NED and is healed forever.

I'd also ask beyond the many prayers for mr none, for prayer for our children, they are hurting as they move through this and at times fearful and confused. Son is alone and far away, and unable to open up to others about his pain.

I will pray for all monkeys and their hardships, as always.

NOTE: At the end of this thread, before the prayer chain takes place, I will make a list of all the needed prayers and post it here.
**************

Please pray for my friend Greg Jones, who is has been going back and forth from UCLA Westwood hospital for months due to his mysterious condition - hypersensitive vasculitis. The doctors have no clue and they are trying everything.

Please pray for the family of my friend LoLo's shrink, Sallye, who committed suicide over the weekend.

Please pray for clarity of mind for my daughter and her family.

Please pray for Israel, as well as Lebanon, Iraq and Iran. Also for Hezbollah and all extremist entities who want to take over the world.

Pray for peace in the world.

IMAGINE
Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

For the family of my nephew who was killed in a car accident and also my niece who is having severe panic attacks due to her cousin's death.  Her dad and his dad are brothers and her mom and his mom are sisters, so it was a double whammy for her.

Thanks kind monkeys.

Please continue to keep my sister in your prayers.  Her first round of treatments did not work, and has spread.  She has begun a new treatment of shots once a week.  I don't know exactly what that entails.

Also please continue to keep my brother in your prayers that he will soon be home.

Thank you buddies.  I love all of you.

Please pray for the grandmother of one of my daughter's best friends.  She is a sweet lady and I have known her all my life.  Her colon cancer has recurred and this time her treatments are not going well.  I haven't seen her in over 3 months.  I am worried that things are not well.  It shows in her husband's face when I ask about her and my heart is heavy over this.  She is in her 70's and a Christian, so I know if God chooses she will be ready.  Her name is Martha. Thanks.

Hi Monkeys,

Please post your prayer requests as soon as possible.

I will be making my list Tuesday late afternoon as the prayer chain will start at midnight.

On the last prayer thread, I made a list that was a page long. Some of the monkeys on that list ... I haven't seen them online lately, so I don't know if they still need prayers. Can anyone tell me about these people - Patty CA, South Ga Girl, Magnolia, JuJu, KKial, Janfolkart, SSD's Cullen, Lakelady. Lexie, Lake Erie Princess, Starr, etc.

At least this time, we won't have to pray for Jackie's uncle Mike, the last prayer thread got him released.

Monkeys,  please pray for my stepfather Pete.  He is having dizzy spells and was on a heart monitor... pulse raced up to 170!  But believe it or not after exhaustive tests... there is nothing wrong with his heart.  We went through this several years ago and he went to Mayo.  We simply don't know what to do next.

His 92 yr old mother ELECTED (yes, she's stubborn) to have surgery for carpal tunnel and is hospitalized for an infection.. not doing well.

And also on this day (Wednesday)  my 2 baby schnauzer girls are both at the vets.... and since they are 10 and 13 they have to use anethesia to clean their teeth.  Don't laugh.. I am worried sick about them.... particularly Haley the oldest.

Thank you friends.

Quote from: "nonesuche"
I'd like to pray for hardships Klaas and Lala have at this moment, I won't go into detail except that I'd like for us to pray for strength and resolution for both families.

As always, I would like to pray for Natalee's return to her family, for resolution and closure, and for justice.

I'd like to pray that Peaches continues to gather strength and success in her battle over cancer, and that she continues to remain NED and is healed forever.

I'd also ask beyond the many prayers for mr none, for prayer for our children, they are hurting as they move through this and at times fearful and confused. Son is alone and far away, and unable to open up to others about his pain.

I will pray for all monkeys and their hardships, as always.


I would like to add, prayers for None, also, that she continues to have strength to guide her family and also have time to replenish herself.  

We love you, None.   :D

Hi Monkeys,

I don't really need any prayers for myself. There were times that God carried me, but today the quality of my problems has so greatly improved, that I am truly grateful for my life and everything in it.

I will ask for prayers for my elderly stepmother who is 87 and has not been feeling well for a long time now.  This depresses my father who is 83 b/c he feels that now he is loving the 2nd love of his life.  My Mom died 29 years ago.  If you would please pray for them both I would appreciate it.

I also have a dear friend whose husband had to have emergency open heart surgery several weeks ago.  He didn't have a heart attack, but his Doctors felt he wouldn't make it thru the weekend without it.  He recently had to go back into CCU b/c he was having chest pains & almost fainting. Please pray for her husband and her (& family).  She is known to many of us here at SM, and a friend to the Holloway/Twitty families.

Please say a prayer for all the families of missing loved ones and for the safe return of their loved ones.  

Please also say a prayer for those who are being abused, either physically or emotionally, whether infants, childrens, adults or the elderly.  Please also include all the dogs, cats, etc, that are being abused and for those in shelters to find forever homes.

Please also say a prayer for those with addictions to find Recovery.  So many die before ever hearing that word.

Pray for our soldiers who protect us day & night, in peace and in war.

Please also say a prayer for J2K, Paulus, & the other suspects to find it in their hearts to have the compassion & courage to tell the truth about Natalee.  And for anyone with information to have the courage to come forward.

Thank you!

Could I please ask that prayer be given for my 8 yr. old nephew, Hayden? His Mother died suddenly, and I claim God's promise to turn all things to good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. Her Mom is struggling with this, too.

Please, one more? My sister's custody of her kids is being challenged. Please know that as much as I love her, I would not ask that she prevail if it were not truely best for the kids to be with her. I know the situation well, and it boils down to an ex-husband on disability wanting child support, and he seems willing to do anything to obtain it. She goes to court Sept.1. Please pray for her and her 2 daughters.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I will join you in all the concerns mentioned here, as well as for Natalee and her family.

Also remember my mother who is having her pace maker replaced.  Last time they replaced the batteries, they collapsed her lung.  She will be ninety in October so we are concerned about any procedure she has to have.

Thank you.

The requests for the children especially touch my soul.  I am so sorry CBB, for everything you and your family is going through.  

Does your sister have a good lawyer?  We have certainly witnesses the benefits of that.  Her children are worth every penny.

I miss your smiling face at night and hope to see you soon.  I trot the dancing mouse, that says "Woohoo," out every once in a while and think of you when I do.

I will pray for comfort and healing for you and your family.  I will also pray for the children, that they have love and support surrounding them every day of their lives.

God bless you.  I love you!

I know that I am new here, but I'm hoping it will be ok to ask for a prayer for something I am struggling with.
I need to make a career change, and I am considering a return to school for a paralegal degree. This will mean a financial and personal sacrifice for my children and for me, because I am a single Mom raising 3 kids alone for the past ten years since my divorce. I am trying to decide if this is the right way to go, and I need some guidance. This is a decision that will change the course of our lives, so I am really having a difficult time. Now that I am middle aged, I'm not sure if I have the energy to do it all, but I want to do something for myself now that the kids are getting older, and my job as a parent is almost done. I am very confused and conflicted.
Thanks so much.

There are so many other monkeys with problems more important than mine, but if any of you have time I need a small prayer or two.  It appears that my daughter won't be attending school this fall if some type of financial arrangements aren't made.  As of right now, I don't even have the deferrment payment because of other financial hardships I have incurred due to my father's death and bills he had.  Please, pray for my family that God will provide us a means to take care of these problems.  I am embarrased to even ask, but I think I need a few prayers and I know God will provide, it just seems so overwhelming at times. TIA

Please pray for my continued recovery from this nasty bout with ovarian cancer.  Your prayers have carried me thru six initial rounds of chemo, surgery, tests and now three rounds of maintenance chemo with nine more to go.  

Please pray for my friend, Steve, who is checking into Emory for a stem cell transplant for a strange variety of Hodgkins Disease.  This is Steve's 3rd time at bat with this cancer so it is most important that he do well thru the transplant.  

And Christal.  She started school a couple days ago.  A big second grader who has had brain surgery more times than I can count.  Her website is
http://www.christalinfo.com/.  Christal comes from a family of great faith.  Her uncle and his quartet dedicated a CD to Christal and are using it to raise funds for St. Jude's in Memphis.  Christal has been treating at St. Jude for a few years and now even though St. Jude has nothing to offer her in terms of treatment or a cure for her brain cancer, funds are being raised in her name.  You can buy the CD and support St. Jude's  at www.maxquartet. com.

Please pray for my mother, who has been in the hospital with a bad infection in here colon. They did a colonoscopy yesterday and things looked pretty good, but the infection persists.

Please pray for my father who is struggling every month to make ends meet for his family. He has a house full of kids and grandkids and has custody of one of his granddaughters (my niece), who has lots of major issues at her young 4 years. My dad is not in good health and does not take care of himself. I have been worried about him for a long time.

Please pray for my niece Jacqueline who is severely ADHD, has no impulse control, rebels against authority. Although, she has had a really hard life so far, she is such a loving and dear child.

Please pray for my sisters: one has major financial and work-related hardships as well as severe persisting migraine headaches. The other one is staying with us or would otherwise be homeless and can’t keep a job for longer than a couple of weeks. She doesn’t have custody of any of her children and recently gave birth to a stillborn.

Please pray for my pride and joy, my daughter, who God has blessed me with, who along with a relationship with Him, makes me happier than I’ve ever been in my life and has given me the will to live and grab hold of live with vigor and enthusiasm to embrace it, whatever comes my way. Please pray for her safety and health and happiness.

Please pray for Natalee’s family, especially in respect to these recent harsh blows they’ve had to endure. Please pray that the Lord continue to strengthen them in their faith and in their daily lives. Please give them the courage and strength to go on and keep her legacy alive.

Please be with our Nonesuche and her husband, their son and daughter. Please continue to give them strength to endure whatever His will is for them. I pray for a miracle for this special family, and thank Him for the miracles they have already received as a result of His love.

Please pray for the health of many here: Anna, Tylergal, Easywriter, Janfolkart’s recent injury, San and her arm, AZSunny and her procedure, Peaches and her continued recovery (She is an inspiration to us all), Yapperz husband, Angie’s husband, Snoopy’s sister with cancer, and all the other monkeys and their families that I have not included…

Please pray for LouiseVargas to one day have a relationship with her daughter and her 2 grandsons and to continue in her quest to find happiness if this is not His will.

Please pray for Lalas and her family in their financial situation and all of the hardships that they have recently experienced since her dear father’s recent passing.

Please pray for my friend Joanie and her family, who recently lost her 97 year old grandmother who was so amazing that she still lived by herself and was a very strong and vibrant woman. She passed in her sleep with no real inkling that anything was wrong with her.

Please pray for Uncle Mike, that adjustment back into life is a comfortable one. Please take away all of the horrors he experienced while he was held captive.

Please pray for my friend Mark, who is in fear of losing his job, who is doing the best he can and it’s still not good enough for his boss. Her constant belittling of him has alienated him from most of his coworkers who dare not go against their boss. Mark is unable to function properly at work now because he is under so much pressure not to mess up!

Please be with my friend Bret, who recently lost his niece in her battle with manic depression, then 3 weeks after that lost the cat that was his constant companion for 11 years….Please pray that his heart be filled up with the Spirit of the Lord.

And finally…
Please pray for the unbelievers out there, all the sick and suffering, and all alcoholics and addicts, of which there are many, who unbeknownst to them, are closing themselves off from the light, peace, and salvation that only He can offer.

SSD's Cullen
.

Last night I was going to write about him but after writing a note to None, my husband needed the computer, and I was not able to do so.

Actually, today - right now - he is undergoing an 8-hour surgery.  He had a 6-hour surgery last Tuesday, and then another today.  He has spinabifida, and the surgeries are to place a rod down his back and take care of other issues.  

His surgery last week went well although he lost a great deal of blood.  I have not heard yet today, although we were told at school that the surgery began at 2:00 rather than the 11:00 scheduled time.

So, yes, please put him on the prayer list, and I will be so grateful to anyone who prays for him.  He's 7 years old and was my student last year.  I have sent things to him this past week and plan to go see him as soon as possible.  I have told him that many people are praying for him.

God bless all of you and your requests,
SSD

Dear Monkey Friends ~ I've started this many times in the last few days.
I feel guilty asking for your prayers with the burdens so many of you are carrying.
Ten months ago, my husband's group was dissolved (with a high-tech company) ~ it took him 3 months to find another job ~ one month ago today when our son had just received his acceptance to law school, my husband walked in to announce that the ad agency he started working for in January had downsized by 35%.

He just looked at us and broke down. He is 55 years old. There is nothing on the horizon. I start back to teaching next week, and I am scared to leave him at home. He *is* making contacts and talking with people, but this go-round has taken its toll. He has admitted he is deeply depressed.

I'm so sorry to unload on you all ~ he doesn't want his parents or mine to worry about this, so there's no one to hear how worried I am about him.

Please keep him in your prayers. I love him.

Please pray for my friend Greg Jones, who is has been going back and forth from UCLA Westwood hospital for months due to his mysterious condition - hypersensitive vasculitis. The doctors have no clue and they are trying everything.

Please pray for the family of my friend LoLo's shrink, Sallye, who committed suicide over the weekend.

Please pray for clarity of mind for my daughter and her family.

Please pray for Israel, as well as Lebanon, Iraq and Iran. Also for Hezbollah and all extremist entities who want to take over the world.

Pray for peace in the world.

IMAGINE
Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one


I love these verses.......thanks, Louise.

AZSunny is having surgery on her leg today.  Pray that the procedure is a success and she recovers quickly.

Keep my family in your prayers, regarding the care and wellbeing of our Dad, who has early signs of dementia.  

Tcumom, we went through a similar situation in '95.  Husband lost Director position with a company he'd been with for 26 years.  He also was depressed.  He saw a psychologist and took meds for a while.  Not saying that this is what your husband should do, but there is hope.  My husband has had 4 jobs since then, two he left on his own, one he could no longer do because of physical requirements and now has been on current job for a year.  He chose blue collar positions the last 3 because he didn't have the heart left for what he had been doing.  

I will keep all of you in my prayers.

Tyler, I just finished reading Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis.  I had never read anything by him, but saw it mentioned in a recent Time Magazine article about a scientist who converted to Christianity, primarily after reading that book...so I bought it.  I can see why it is so powerful.  If you have read it, you know.   Lewis presented an argument from reason for Christianity in such a clear and simple way.  Just the facts, ma'am.  Maybe you could leave the book at your son's home?   Right now, my son would not even consider reading it.

Last week my husbands cousin had a brain tumor removed.  He had two removed 6 years ago.  They just found out this morning, that even though they got most of his tumor, it is one of the most aggressive forms of cancer.  He was admitted into the hospital for chemo this morning.  Please keep him and his family in your prayers.  His name is Aaron and he's only 34.  :cry:

I pray for Aaron.

For his strength while undergoing the treatments.

For his ability to maintain a strong positive attitude as it is my belief that that is what he has control over.

I also think a few of terryd's stories might help.

Ah dear LEP -

It is so good to see you.  I've been thinking about you alot.  I remember how vivacious you were when you first came to the board.. then when your mom got sick you were so worried.. then you obviously had little time to join in.  But you've never been out of our thoughts and prayers.  Welcome back. I am so very very sorry for your loss.

Please add Pearson to the prayer list.  He is a 6 yr. old little boy who has been battling leukemia for a little over a year.  This type of leukemia does not respond to bone marrow transplants and he has had to undergo chemo and transfusions.  His blood count is the lowest it can be right now and he desperately needs prayers.  Please remember him, his mom and his brother..They are at a tough place right now and need all the prayers we can give.   Thanks

May I please have prayers for a homeless man named Homer.

He is a young black man of slight build who lives most of the time on a bus bench in front of the gas station where I get my gas. Franklin and Argyle. He looks respectable at first. He appears to be clean and his clothes are clean and he keeps his stuff in a small suitcase on rollers. He lives there spring, summer, fall and winter. But not in the rain.

I've passed him hundreds of times during the past few years. I have much sympathy for the homeless and don't understand why it took me a long time to realize he is not waiting for a bus. Sometimes his head is tilted onto his suitcase on the bench and he is sleeping. Other times he talks to himself. Sometimes he stands up and motions his hands like he's talking to someone.  

It is highly unusual for a homeless guy of his small stature and vulnerability to exist for so long with all his possessions. When I come home late at night, he is not on the bus bench, so he found a safe place to spend the nights. I suspect it's 1/2 block south in a freeway underpass.

The last time I got gas, he was at the bench standing up and I went over to talk to him. I said, "Hi, how are you doing?" He responded to me but I could only understand a word here and there. I asked him his name. With clarity he said Homer. Then more gibberish. I caught the word God and I told him I was going to generate prayers for his well being because I knew a group of people (Monkeys) who would pray for him. Then the gas line clicked that my tank was full and I said goodbye. He kept on talking.

I'm always questioning and thinking about what motivates people to live in spite of bad luck, illness, obstacles, disappointments, losses, etc. Homer has a will to live. Maybe he can deal with his being homeless because he lost his mind and went into another reality. Maybe he HAD to do that.

Please pray with me for Homer. Thank you.

I have read the prayer requests in this thread, and my heart goes out to everyone in need. I will include everyone in my prayers and ask for God to give his blessings on each and every person in need.
I hesitate to ask for prayers, because I am blessed in so many ways. My children are happy and doing well, we are all healthy, and have some good friends and family. But as a single parent raising 3 kids alone, I have struggled financially. I just started a new job, and I am hoping I can give my children the financial stability they deserve. My prayer request is that God give me the strength to work hard, and the guidance to succeed so that I can be a better parent. Financial stress takes so much energy away from my children, and the worry keeps me from sleeping. I pray each night not to be wealthy, but to feel that we are on a little firmer ground.  
Thanks.

Thank you all so much.  You have no idea how much this means to me.  All of you are in my prayers daily that God will bless your lives.

Just a little correction:  My sister-in-law is having kidney trouble.  Prolly looking at dialysis (spelling).  Kidney functioning at 16 %.  Only has one kidney.

My sister continues her battle.  Cancer has spread to an area in her back and an area in her groin.  She is doing radiation 5x per week. No chemo at this time.  Last go around of that made her so sick.

Thank you buddies.

Have you ever heard of Dave Ramsey? He has a radio show and has written several books (Financial Peace and Total Money Makeover for example). His philosophy is very simple and based on baby steps. He has a big heart for single mom's and their plight. I hear him interacting with them on his radio show all the time. You should check him out. Call his show and maybe get some direct help. He has a website also. DaveRamsey.com.

Monkey friends, you may not remember my prayer request for my beloved step-dad at the end of June. Much has gone on since then. Well, he went in walking, talking, and joking, but 90+ days later, he is leaving us. No more heroics. We are leaving the vent on for now, but are removing all other tubes and stopping all meds but the morphine. We do not expect him to last very long and certainly not until the weekend.

If you can find it in your hearts, please send a prayer our way. For him, his soul, and our family. Thank you.

Please, please pray for my 2 neices. They ran away today. Obviously they had discussed it, but they left from school at different times and they are not together. The youngest called my sister, wanting assurances that she could live with her and that if she came to her home would not be returned to her father, but would not reveal her whereabouts. The girls are 12 and 14 years old. The police have searched and visited every known friend's house, mall, recreation outlet, etc. They've come up with nothing. There is a custody battle going on, but the immediate danger is that no one knows where they are. They've been missing in Bradenton Florida now for 14 hours.

Anna, the youngest, is back home. She made her way to her Mom's house and she took her home. By calendar, the next 2 days falls within his visitation rotation, and the police instructed her to do that.  The 14 yr. old is still missing and no one has heard from her. The FBI is being called in, and the police report classifies the 12 year old as "endangered" due to a statement she made while being interrogated by detectives, "If my Dad manages to run my Mother out of town, I'll kill myself".
Please pray for Claire's safety and Anna's well being. It's a totally unnecessary, ugly custody case with fabricated allegations against my sister. I know, she's my sister and I'm biased, but when it comes to kids, I take the blinders off and am able to look at reality. Their Father has single handedly caused tremendous pain for these children.
A heartfelt thank you for your prayers.

My sister and her ex had one of the nastiest divorces and custody hearings -- 25 years ago. And the games continued throughout the childrens' lives.

I wish I could tell you that it did not have an impact on the adults they became, but I would be lieing. 2 seemed to make it 'alright'. The youngest...well I look up the arrest records constatnly in the county where we think she is hanging out, to see if I can find her -- again.

CBB-

I am so sorry, divorce is so hideous. I will pray for Claire to return to your sister's care safely. Hopefully the authorities can move to protect both girls, I will pray for that as well. Sometimes it takes authorities to reason with malicious situations, I know in my own divorce I prayed for intervention when moving two states away still did not stop the abuse.

It is a crime, those poor girls.

I am especially moved by the plight of the 2 children caught up in the custody battle. I went through that with my children 10 years ago, and my ex is still trying to control and abuse me. It is very damaging to the kids. Thankfully, mine have been able to rise above the situation so far, but it is not easy for anyone when one parent refuses to cooperate. And it is an all too common occurence, unfortunately. The situation with these girls makes me cry for their pain and fear.

Frijole, Mishy, mrs red, pdh3 and nonesuche, thank you so very much for your kind words. Thank you, especially Louise for "running" things. I absolutely adore your kind and gentle spirit.

This is the most horrible thing I have experienced in life . I did not realize what this decision meant. Basically, they are on a fast track to hasten his death. They are withholding all of his important medicines, including insulin and antibiotics, plus hydration and nutrition. Friday is the sceduled cut-off day for the vent.

I am vehemently opposed and am praying and begging for them not to withhold care. I am horrified, appalled and heartsick. This is passive Euthanasia and it is in direct conflict with everything I believe. Every life is valuable, even if there is suffering.

Please continue to pray for us. I am praying that my mom and the siblings will reverse this decision and give him care and comfort in his last days.

Thank you, again.

This from the Christian Medical Association ethics statement:

The role of the physician is to affirm human life, relieve suffering, and give compassionate, competent care as long as the patient lives. The physician as well as the patient will be held accountable by God, the giver and taker of life.

and...

We oppose active intervention with the intent to produce death for the relief of suffering, economic considerations or convenience of patient, family, or society.

Please pray that our family will decide to resume care and comfort for this most valuable life.

Memphis-

My heart breaks for you, I am so sorry. Rick's death made some profound changes in myself, some I still can't describe, but each week of his illness was filled with yearning for one more week and one more smile and one more kiss. The day we were told there was nothing more that could be done, I felt utter despair, well that despair is part of what you are feeling even now.  As Peaches can tell you, I wanted to pursue alternative treatments then but Rick chose not to, so to then stand by and allow this to happen to him was an overwhelming sense of panic mixed with despair.

Whatever the decision I can tell that if you can proceed with the philosophy that God ultimately makes all decisions, there is great peace to be found within knowing you can express your love to your stepfather each step of the way. In every moment you have with him, make sure he feels only love in your touch, your look, and your voice.

That you do have control of, the love that you share and how you honor and express that love. I will keep each of you in my prayers.

Thank you all so much for the prayers and concern. Still no word from Claire, but my sister took Anna to a friend's house tonight and talked for quite a while with her. She suspects that the friend knows something about where Claire is. Nothing firm, but the friend was pretty calm about the whole thing, and my experience with girls that age is that they are normally natural drama queens. Maybe I'm just stretching for something encouraging. The longer this goes, the more I fear that what I had hoped, isn't correct. I thought it was possible that some well-intentioned, but mis-guided parent might have chosen to look the other way and was allowing Claire to stay at their house. It's gotten too big for that. It's been on the news, and police are questioning everybody. Claire's cell phone, at first would ring before going to the message box, but now is either turned off off or battery has run out. I'm heading down tomorrow, for no reason other than to lend moral support and do whatever I can.
Thank you all so much!

Nonesuche, I know your emotions are still raw and to expose yourself to this must be so hard. I was caught off guard in this dilemma and I have only just found the words to clarify my thoughts. There is nothing morally wrong with someone choosing not to continue heroic attempts to maintain life. I have no problems with the practise of withholding food and water when a person is in their final hours and thier organs are shutting down. I understand that this is helpful and makes them more comfortable. However, we do not have multiple organ failure. We have lung "failure", which has been the problem from day one. He has been on a vent pretty much from the beginning. His body is racked with mutliple infections acquired at the hospital. He is very, very weak, but no doctor has said that we have other organs that are failing. By withholding food and nutrition at this point, we are causing his death. That is my horror. If his organs were already shutting down, then withholding basic care would be kind. In Terri Shiavo's case, the horrible thing was that she was not dying. They caused her death by withholding the basics of life.

I am afraid that we have already caused irreperable damage. He is incoherent and almost comotous. We have robbed ourselves of those last precious days or weeks by choosing this. I am not afraid to let him go, but I do not want us to kill him. I hope this makes sense.

I guess my point was that medicine has changed to some degree, I saw within Rick's care that some told us at the outset not to even pursue treatment as well? He did but it came at a cost, the treatment track he pursued was debilitating and likely hastened his death?

Doctors seem to not follow the absolutes of the hypocratic oath in this day and age, but rather calculate risk and reward scenarios? Each situation is different, each case is different, as is your father's situation from our experiences.

What I can tell you is that we have so little control, in the judgments made at times. So my ultimate point was to encourage you to focus as positively as you can on what you can control in this.

I regret I posted anything now, so sorry to have upset you. I wish you only support at this time.

Memphis-

This one line sticks with me:

His body is racked with mutliple infections acquired at the hospital.

I don't encourage idle litigation but it would appear to me, if decisions are being made you disagree with, that you might consult an attorney. If the hospital has contributed to his decline, an attorney could put a court order in place to stop the decision to euthanize.

I'm asking for a prayer. At this time in my life, I wish things were simpler. Life is too complex and overwhelming for me. I have a hard time doing simple things like regularly going to the car wash. I stress so much all month over the bills I have to pay at the end of the month that I can't enjoy the present. Credit card debt, car payments, $821 per month for health insurance. I wish I could find optimism and see the glass half full. I wish I could forgive and release my daughter but I can never trust her again and I can't forgive her. I have suffered catastrophic loss and I have no real time support system. I waste too much time doing nothing, trying to escape. I can't face housecleaning. I used to be so organized and on top of things but not anymore. I just don't care yet it hits me when I wake up in the morning and look around at my place in such a state of disrepair. I keep the outside looking good. I take care of my plants. When I go out in public, I look good and dress well. No one can see what's in my mind. I put on a good front, chat with strangers, but then have to come home and face myself. My kitten Guinevere helped a lot but she is going through a terrorist phase. I am lonely and isolated. I know I have a mission, I just don't know what it is.

LV, Hugs to you.  My prayers have been sent.  Just keep trying each day. I know it is hard... each new day... say I can do this (and just do a lil at a time--even one lil thing)... your kitty feels your pain--much like a child, it just acts "crazy" when mommy is out of sorts--it's just trying to make sense of it all too.  I know this sounds too simple but it does work.  Make yourself go outside and just sit in the sunshine and relax--I know that will take effort (to relax) but just do it for at least 20 minutes daily--the sunshine vitamin is a cure all for me. What you arent able to see in your glass, we here can all see in your heart and it is way above the half mark :wink: ... we love you Louise!!

2NJSons_Mom and Mrsn2itiv,

Thank you both from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and encouraging me. I keep a beach chair on my balcony and will spread it out and get 20 minutes of sunshine each day. I know the sun is important. I forgot for the moment.

What you say about my cat being upset because I'm upset is very true. Just like humans.

Thank you so much for all your good suggestions and for saying with such lovely words that I am loved.

Dear Louise.....I don't often talk about SM to someone other than another monkey....but last night I told one of my cousins about you.  I had not seen your recent post.  I talked about our Hollywood monkey....someone who has great intelligence and insight....someone who teaches whenever she can....who shares her life with the rest of us.....who takes pictures of her kitty....who has problems with some members of her family.....and tells us about it....

Please know that I am saying special prayers for you.  Is there someone in your area who can help you sort out all of this...?  Mere

Louise, these words could have been written by me not so long ago (except not nearly so eloquently.)  Different problems, but same situation, really.  I will remember you in my prayers.  I agree sunshine is a good thing, along with positive thoughts, and tackling just one tiny housekeeping task so you can enjoy the feeling of accomplishment.  You have lots of friends here - don't forget that when you are feeling low!

I am just so sorry he was taken from you, and so young with so much of your futures ahead of you. I am sending you a hug and hope that with time, you too will see he's always a part of your soul, your laughter, and your hopes and dreams.

Somehow God must have needed another fine angel, he will make you proud of him and proud of what you were together. I pray for strength and support for you, for God to bless you with that, and for God to carry you both through this loss.

Louise, you are too sweet a person to feel so alone...we are here and if you just want to talk anytime ask Klaas for my email addy.  I am a good listener, just ask None.  I really won't mind at all.  Any other monkeys that need a shoulder to lean on is more than welcome to mine.  If I can be there for just one person then my time here on earth will have been worthwhile and my life well spent.  Afterall, that is why we are here...to help each other on our life's journey.

I have been thinking of you a lot lately.  Maybe because you posted your so poignant case on my birthday, October 6th.

How are you?

Are you doing better?

You have been in my prayers.  Love you and your buoyant spirit and will to keep battling on.  I have been so down and so up at different points in my life, but I do know that if I had given up at certain times when things seemed so bleak, I would have missed some of the best parts of my life.

Whether you know it or not, you have a friend here.  Can I help in any way?

As I read the suffering and sadness here, my heart goes out to the gentle souls that chose to ask for prayer. There's humbleness, faith, and reverance in being able to do that. I join with you as the heartaches are lifted to a Sovereign God, our Redeemer, and Comforter.

This is my last Christmas in my home of 20 years. I have lost the struggle to spare it from the wreckage left by my ex-husband. I have been enraged, desperately bitter, and self loathing for my incredible stupidity and trust. Those feelings have kept me from being able to put my trust in the only place it is safe. God never promised me no pain. He did promise to give me the ability, through Him, to bring a different perspective on whatever life handed me.
I have been so richly Blessed to have had this home in which to bring up my son, and to have the memories that are not confined within it's walls. I carry those within my heart. I hope that its next occupants will find the warmth that I have experienced in this, their home, and that it will last. I'll put the house up for sale after Christmas, after I can clear away the clutter of 20 years.
It's a scary time for me and I'm holding a tight grip to an unseen hand, and trusting.......
My ex-husband is preparing for bankruptcy and I'm bracing for the fallout. The damage isn't over, and I don't know how many vices that were his alone and hidden from me, I will be held accountable for. I have made choices along the way that may come back to haunt me. I have consistantly pulled up when it came down to pressing fraud charges against him for forging my name or including my name to borrow money. Several times, I have discovered the action months or years later, but opted to not press formal charges. I just couldn't do that to my son, if there was any other way. I don't know how things will turn out, but I'm trying to take it one day at a time.
It's not original, but it bears repeating: I don't know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future.
At this time of year when we celebrate the birth of the One who paid for our messes, our frailty, our sin, I'm grateful for the unimagineable gift that was given to us individually. That infant's hand that wrapped around Mary's finger, and was later pierced by hatred, extends from Heavenly places to reach out in love, power, patience, and undertsanding to each of us. As Jesus was with His disciples for the last time and facing the torment that was iminant, He was concerned for, and loving, you and me. He knew why He was taking the path before Him. He's not likely to forget us now.


Jesus' prayer, concerning the disciples and you and me:

And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.
I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word, that they may all be one: even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us...............
John 17:19 -20


God Bless, Comfort, and Guide Us All!

CBB,

I rarely look at this thread, so I don't know why I opened it today.  I just want to say, as a single mom, I can relate to much of what you said, especially your strong emotions; wounds are especially hurtful at this time of year.  But you are strong, you are intelligent and you certainly have your head in the right place, so you will be fine.  I would suggest that you find an attorney skilled in this type of divorce, to shield you as much as possible from having to share the fallout of your husband's actions.  I'm sure there are some innocent spouse protections but it would probably take a pro to be able to utilize them.  In the meantime, take comfort in prayer, in your son, and in your knowledge that things will be okay.  God bless you, CBB, now and in the New Year.


Title: Re: PRAYER REQUESTS - Please list here
Post by: Appeals on December 22, 2006, 01:40:58 PM
CBB,

I also I think I shared with you once before, was married to a man that drove me into the poor house.  I lost my dream home we had built, and had no resources at the end of that long term marriage.  I even had to pay for the lawyer to severe me from him.  That was 12 years ago.  Through the grace of God, much of what was lost has been restored to me financially at least.  I had no children with him (thanks to a good decision I made unilaterally mid-marriage to have a permanent birth control procedure done :)  ) but I did have to raise two girls by myself after my first marriage self destructed.  I know you are struggling and trying to do the right thing, but I agree that you need a good attorney, because there are now laws that protect innocent spouses to some degree and they do not have the fall out bankruptcy does.  God has brought you this far.  It is just time for a new chapter in your life.  Step out in faith and all will be well.  I've been there.

Love you.

My heart to yours, sweetie.  I can't say anything that will help your situation other than I am sorry and I am here if you need to vent to anyone.  You are welcome to email me...just let me know.  I have never been in your shoes and I see there are others that have, so my advice to you is talk to those that have been there.  They may be able to offer you some answers.  They say when a woman gets a divorce it instantly sends her in to poverty.  I know this isn't the case all the time, but from my own observations of people I know I see it does happen.  Then the ex just lets it all slide and things get way out of hand and the one that pays is the spouse that is trying to do what is right.  I so despise the "life isn't fair" motto.  It really stinks!   All I can offer is {{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}

Angie, I am sorry to hear about your son. It is every mother's worst fear for their children. My mother certainly had her hands full with one of my sisters and I, and through God's Grace, I finally decided to grow up!  :lol: My sister, on the other hand, is still out there  :cry: I pray that you are able to get through to your son, for he doesn't realized how easily he can get locked in to that way of life, and for some, there is no turning back. Please let me know if you ever need to talk, for I have lived to tell the tale...

Snoopy, you and your family are in my prayers. God Bless Joyce's soul, as she now sits at the foot of his throne in complete health and peace.

God Bless all of the monkeys in all of your personal trials. Life can be so difficult at times. It is friends like you all who help lighten the load!!

AZSunny, my thoughts and prayers are with you in the loss of Wendy. It is never a good time to lose a loved one, but it always seems like the holidays make it even sadder. Prayers for your strength and comfort!!

CBB, my heart goes out to you, as you have truly been through the ringer. Your Faith and courage will certainly get you through this, as you have shown much grace and dignity in handling this hardship. Your beautiful words when talking about the Lord always touch me very deeply, and I know that He is guiding you through this journey.

Please pray for my ex-sister -in -law, Viki. She has been very ill this past year and was brought home for the holidays with Hospice care.She has taken a turn for the worse and the Hospice nurse has advised the family that she probably has 24 to 72 hours left. Please pray for her daughter who is an only child and will be left to handle the affairs on her own.

I have been so remiss in not checking this thread I am ashamed  :oops: I think our holiday was so full of demand around the new cookie venture I lost sight of the new posts being made here.

AZSunny - I am so very sorry about your loss of Wendy, terribly sorry. I feel sure Rick will greet her in heaven. God bless each of you who loved her so much.

CBB - I think so many of us can relate to your situation, my first husband left me penniless after my family put him into business and I've had no help from him with supporting the kids either. My heart goes out to you, we're makiing financial downsizes in our life too, so I remind myself that our memories are ours forever and no one can diminish those. You are such a strong and good person, I can't bear to think he could impact you further so I do hope you can get the legal assistance you need to prevent that. You deserve good things in your life, you give so much so freely to others always.

Snoopy - my heart breaks for all I know you are feeling right now. Losing your sister so quickly as I lost Rick, well there just aren't words to describe how devastating it feels. Sending you many hugs and many prayers that God will assist you each step of the way for you so loved your sister. Christmas morning was quite hard for me this year, Rick's rocker sits on our porch and was the first thing I saw when I awakened and walked out to get busy with family breakfast and celebration. I wrote Lala's that for the first time in about a month, I let myself sit quietly and have that good cry. I also reminded myself that I know he feels my tears in heaven. Your sister knew how much you loved her, I am so sure of it. She is surely your guardian angel.

BT- I so hope your father improves and that they can arrest the pneumonia. I will pray for him for I know you must be very worried.

Cubbee- I'll pray for your ex SIL Viki too, it's so hard in these moments for her family so I will pray for a peaceful transition for her into God's arms.

Cubbie~ I am so sorry for your loss.

Snoopy~ God now has your sister even closer to Him.

CBB~ Somehow, someway you will find your way out of the mess that your ex created. I wish that you did not have to take this journey that he plotted, but you WILL come through it.

Mrs.Red~ I recently had a taste of what you have been enduring for some time. My heart goes out to you, your dad and your brothers.

Louise~ I love you. That does not pay your bills, though I hope it helps you a tiny bit, my friend.

Angie~ Bless you. I pray for you and your son. Given my family history, I am braced for trouble down the road with Justin. Email me should you want to talk.

Nonesy~ You beautiful monkey soul. Butterflies and daisies must be abundant in your aura.

Mishy~ Sister who walks the same path as I, I know you will remain steadfast.

I know that I have left out some names and sorrows here. Please, know that all of you and your loved ones are in my heart and prayers. This journey of life has such pain at times. Without one another, it would be unbearable. With one another, it is joyous and fulfilling.

For those of you who missed seeing Art Colley on last evening. She has had brain surgery awhile back for an arterial venous malformation. She is still recuperating and still has another bleed. So keep her in your prayers.

Also Tyler, get lots of rest so you can recover quickly from your pneumonia.
We miss you. We pray for your speedy recovery.

I am ashamed to say, it's been a little while since I have been in this thread and I just want to say, I am speechless!  I have tears running down my cheek from reading of heartache for all the sad stories, but also in awe of such wonderful and beautiful people here.  

I would like to ask for a speciall blessing for two men who went to school together and started A Weblog , who have been discussing politics and life for years and were ready to share it with the world.  I wonder if Red and Tom ever dreamed they would bring so many strangers together from all over the world who would become such good friends and who are so loving and caring.  They can honestly say, they have changed alot of  lives.  Not only the members, but the awareness they bring to the forum, of the missing, the hurting and their families; and the awareness of events in this world.  Even the happy ones!

They are both truly very special people and God Bless them both!  And Klaas for all she does here too!

I would love nothing more than to meet each and every one of you in person. You are all very special and bring your own individual  uniqueness!  Love to you all!

I am asking all of my dear monkey friends to keep my 15 year old son in your prayers. As many of you know he suffers from asthma and allergies and has severe acid reflux, four years ago he was diagnosed with a haital hernia. The pediatric gastroenterologist recommended trying to control it with diet and medication , which works well until the allergies and asthma act up and need to be treated, that in turn aggravates the stomach and he usually ends up being sick 3-4 weeks at a time. We have prayed alot about it and have had fairly good health with it until this past year when he started having alot of problems. He has been sick for almost 3 weeks now and is just starting to turn the corner to being well.
We had a long talk with his pediatrician who has treated him since he was about 3 years old. She is a very special lady and we have her home number and cell number and she is always there for us. She has advised us and we have come to the decision that we need to look into the surgery to correct the haital hernia . We are scared, but our son wants the surgery and as the pediatrician has pointed out , this will never change for him. He will do well until the asthma and allergies act up and then will be sick for a good month.The medications for the asthma and allergies wreck his stomach. I have many concerns over the surgery, it is a Nissan Fundoplication(not sure if it is spelled correctly), but I also have many concerns over how my son can carry on a normal life without giving it a try. I cannot imagine him making it through college, or every keeping a job when he has to drop out for a month at a time several times a year.
The plan is to try to "crutch" him through the rest of the school year and probably proceed with plans for surgery when school lets out for the summer. I am asking you to please keep him in your prayers. It breaks my heart for him to be sick and there is no medicine that can help him...
Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Cubbeegirl

Cubbee-

Please know my brother had a haital hernia and had surgery when he was 20, like your son he was an athlete and he did very well. It was a textbook case and his recuperation went off without a hitch. So I wanted you to know it can go well and the fact your son is in good shape physically will help so much.

As for the asthma I know the winter can and did excaberbate my son's. He would end up with bronchitis for a month during every basketball season without fail. Somehow he made it through and the asthma seems to have lessened greatly by the time he turned 18?

Nonetheless you and he are in our prayers !!!!!!!

Thanks nonesie! It helps to hear from someone who has experienced this surgery. My son is onboard all the way, he is sick of being sick! We are on week 3 of being out of school now, and the prospect of him returning this week does not look good. He had a nasty case of bronchitis following a nasy virus. It seems the cold and allergies trigger his asthma, everytime we try to do the allergy shots it aggravates his stomache. We are hoping that they can do the surgery laprascopically as it is much more common to do so now.

Guys, I feel some shame to ask again to be remembered in your prayers. There are so many grave illnesses, loss and grieving, and heart aches that are being lifted up due to this thread that connects us to each other in one untied spirit. I visit here often and am honored and humbled to be able to share in such personal need. I take very seriously the pain that caused each of you to reach out to others and know that we are called upon to support our brothers and sisters in prayer. It takes trust and faith to do that. I've always thought that praying together is the most intimate thing we do on earth.

The concerns that I have brought here earlier are coming to fruition and I'm scared. I know that fear and the spirit of timidity are not from the Father, and I'm struggling to maintain the peace that assures and comforts me in the face of all things. Two days ago I found myself facing an inspector from the Attorney General's Office and a prosecutor who walked into my clinic unannounced to discuss the relationship between my clinic and the business of my ex-husband's. I have mentioned that my ex is verging on bankruptcy, and it is to the government's clear advantage to build a bridge between the two businesses. I have assets, he doesn't. My corporate attorney wants a retainer that would dictate my inability to meet payroll, and I'm relying on truth and total cooperation to lead me right now.

I would so appreciate being remembered in your prayers. I just want to be held and surrounded by His protective hands. I want to be guided and dictated by His wisdom and led, without straying, to His purpose for me. I pray that those who are in positions over me make determinations and decisions that will not harm me.

I have ached for my Mom's strength, and my Dad's comfort and wisdom throughout this whole thing. It's irrational, but truthfully, I'm lost without feeling "I belong and am inextricable part of" someone as I did during a 20 year marriage. I have never felt so alone and abandoned. All of those feelings are misplaced and maybe I'm where I am because my heart hasn't truly learned what my head knows. I'm not alone; God will never abandon me. I have a promise of comfort and wisdom that is not subject to death. I do belong to Christ: He suffered and died to make that so. I'm supposed to rely on Him. If there is any way to make sense of why I've experienced heartbreaking loss of loved ones, this place I find myself in right now, holds the answers. Push has come to shove, and I have to walk and live in that surety. Please help me do that with your prayers.

God Bless and Keep you all!         Susan

You must feel as if the rug has been ripped beneath you right now, I will pray for God to surround you and comfort you. I am sending you my support and encouragement to know you can't change all of this, to know what you can control and focus on that solely. We are here for you, we do care and we will stand by you.

It's intimidation tactics, and the guy is very good at it!

THE BUTTERFLY

25 January 2007 | 07:31:27

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.

What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!

be strong and simply don't allow him to make you react, for you know you have done nothing criminal and yes it is a tactic and a nasty one. Deep breaths and move through the motions repeating to that official that you will cooperate for you know you have done nothing wrong. If he sees your quiet determination he may rethink his tactics. If not just know you will endure.

I am holding your hand and many hugs too, I know God will guide you. You are strong and you are deserving of good things, remind yourself of this and don't lose hope.

If ever I needed a prayer, it is now, for Cynthia Ireland and Marc Jaconski and their baby boy who was born two months early at 3 1/2 lbs. Cynthia is fine and lives near Cedars Sinai where she gave birth. She is spending all her days and nights sleeping near the baby and her mother drives back and forth every day from Santa Barbara. Her parents sent a beautiful shower announcement and I called today up to Santa Barbara to RSVP. I spoke to her father who told me the baby shower is on hold because the baby came two months early and they are waiting to see if the baby recovers.

You have been interested in my adventures and I can tell you a short story but it belongs here and not in the adventure thread.

My husband's mother was Muriel (3 children) and her sister was Gladys (9 children). Muriel died and my husband Jack died in 1986 from AIDs. They are all buried in a cemetery in Duarte. I visit them now and then, and bring flowers, a spray bottle of Windex and paper towels. I clean the markers, I bring a scissors to trim the grass, etc. Gladys died last September and the service was in Santa Barbara.

When I met my husband (1962), I was introduced to the children of Gladys, all nine of them. The years pared down the relationships so that I am friends with two of Gladys' children ... Barbara and Mary. Barbara is my first cousin through marriage. She has three daughters ... Mary, Kathy and Cynthia.

Have any of you heard of Kathy Ireland? If you have, I want you to know that Cynthia (who had the baby two months early) is Kathy's sister.

Please pray with me that Cynthia's baby survives and becomes a normal child.

Thank you. Please pray for the survival of Elijah John Irelend.

There are and have been women in your situation.  You are not alone.  Have you tried contacting a Women's Bureau??  There are attornies with reasonable fees to assist women  in crisis.  There is more than one kind of abuse.  Perhaps they could give you the names of a couple attornies.  I don't want to diminish the power of prayer (and you have mine), but your case sounds a little complex.

Louise,
I am praying for the baby and the baby's parents and Grandparents. Keeping you all in my prayers. They can do so much with preemies nowdays. So here hoping all comes out well.

CBB~ When your fear seems to be building, imagine what is actually happening- Christ is cradling you in His arms.

Louise~ My prayers are for that precious baby.

Louise, you and the baby and family are in my thoughts and prayers!

Justins, What a wonderful "mind's eye" vision. I will remember that, and thank you! I feel the fear trying to rise as Monday rolls around, and your timing is perfect! BTW, check out your St Pat's avi.  :wink:

Buckeye, It's good advice. I'm not aware of anything quite like that, but will do some checking. Healthcare is such a specialized legal field and there are so many regs you're subject to: Medicaid, Rural Health, Medicare, OIG, DHS, and each has manuals of regs 5 inches thick. I have a manager of 3 other Rural Health Clinics as part time just in an effort to keep me in compliancy. Since I'm not positive what exactly the OIG is looking for, and they won't tell me, I suspect the reason they are asking for such a wide array of stuff: from original patient charts to tax and income documents, to employment agreements, is to fish for anything that could possibly tie in with my ex's business. He is in healthcare as well and owes back a lot of money to Medicare, and is going under. There's implications for me there as well. The divorce dictated he would continue payments on my car and house, but he's already been unable to make those for 2 months.
It would require an attorney very familiar with both healthcare issues and maybe tax and family law as well. I won't let it go any further without representation. I've produced everything they've asked for, and been as cooperative as I possibly can, but atty's that deal with gov'mt issues are highly specialized and highly paid. The retainer alone would close my doors, and I'm praying that they'll look at what I've given and let go. If not, I have to take steps to be represented reguardless of the outcome. My son was injured playing football for Western Ky and the surgeon who did the repairs said he will not play again. The burden of college is now mine instead of a scholorship, and the financial ruin will be accomplished whether they find anything or not.
I'm not without hope. To the very best of my knowledge, everything is as it should be, and I've made a diligent effort to assure that. It's a new business and I'm pleased to be operating in the black at all, but can say with surety that no one could possibly look at my own income from it at this point, and make a case that I'm in any way taking advantage or "milking" anything!
I'm sorry, you didn't ask for all that detail! I talk when I'm nervous!  :lol:
Thank you for your concern and good advice. I know I can't let it go much further without legal help. Thank you for your prayers that it won't get that far!

None, Mrs. Red, and Sleuth: I just don't know how to say thank you for the words of encouragement. It means so much to me to know I mean enough that others are remembering me with good thoughts and prayers for my well being. I cry every time I come here, but they are warm tears and overflow from my touched heart. I feel like God is reminding me that He has a broader definition of family than I've understood. I love you guys.

More Loving?  I know I can't.  Keep your eyes on that.  He will see you through and you will be all the more stronger for it.  Just keep thinking - This too shall pass.

I will keep you in my prayers!  God is Good! (((((hugs)))))

THank you. I am thanking God that I didn't have aneurysms..at first they thought that is what it was. But it was just a huge AVM and after reading my surgical notes I realize why this one was not totally apparant.
They knew it was another small bleed, but it has gotten worse and is inside AND outside the Dura...scarey stuff. The first time it was an emergency and they had to act fast. We have the advantage of a planned surgery this time at least.
I know what your hubby went through and am so glad to hear he is doing well. God Bless him!
I will try to get an email to you but not sure when. I have to have complete rest this week..this angiogram took a lot out of me and then they did all the pre surgery tests today as well. SO...the Doctor told me I can go from the bed to the chair and not a lot of walking.

I am still under the influence of the "magic cocktail" they gave me so, I hope I am making sense!


Title: Re: PRAYER REQUESTS - Please list here
Post by: Tibrogargan on January 31, 2007, 09:48:52 PM
ArtColley  Thank you for your reply and please do just as your doctor says and rest, rest and then more rest.  
Those tests are exhausting and as you say they have the advantage of planning this operation beforehand and know exactly what they need to do.  Email me if or when you feel the need.  In any case I will be praying and sending healing thoughts your way especially next Friday.  God bless.

TRaffic was a bit held up there today due to the supposed Bomb THing that Red posted about on the front page. I was pleasantly out of it, but the people were talking about it later in the afternoon. I guess it created havoc for people trying to get to the hospital .

I am so sorry you have to endure more surgery and fear, MeMere was so helpful when Rick was ill and so often very right about what we could anticipate, I trust she knows you are in good hands too. I will pray for you, my mother undergoes surgery to remove a kidney this Friday and if not for the great faith I have in her surgeon, I would be terrifed too.

Sometimes the best physicians are angels too, remember that. We will be here cheering on your recovery. Many HUGS !!

THank you None. YOu are such a sweetie!
I do have the utmost faith in my physician and his team. You are right, he is like an angel. He came to see me right after a surgery to tell me the preliminary results for me from his associate and part of his team. As soon as he entered my room, I calmed right down. He is a very gentle soul, very humble and sweet. But, WHAT a BRILLIANT man!
Also, could you send my email addy to MeMere? I don't have hers nor do I have Klaas's.  OR, MeMere's to me?

CBB~

I just got to this thread to get caught up on prayer requests. I'm sorry I didn't get to see this sooner. My heart hurts for you and is very heavy for what you are going thru'. I want you to know that I will be holding you up in prayers alongside with the other monkeys. I know you  know that Jesus is carrying you, just like in the poem about the "Footprints".  Be comforted in the truth that He's not gonna put more on you than you can handle. Trust in Jesus, don't be afraid. Stand tall, hold your head high and be proud. Don't let the enemy wear you down, you reject him and tell him to get behind you, you are a child of God's. (sorry for ranting) :)

Thank-You for all that you do to make the Lively a great place to be. You truly are a blessing to us all here. Lots of Hugs to you! You will be in my prayers during this unknown time in your life.

Thank you so much!

Kimmy, Elaine, Roos: From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!

Oldfart, that was a beautiful prayer for all of the needs here. I've read it several times, and know it pleases God to have a glimpse into your tender heart, as well as comforts those here in need.


CBB, THere is so much I want to say to you regarding your situation, but I just can't seem to get it together in a coherent manner.
Suffice it to say, You are in my prayers and things will turn out fine for you.

THank you so much!

But I hold every single one of you very dear to my heart.

Your heartfelt good wishes and prayers mean more to me than you'll ever know. Its truly overwhelming and brought tears to my eyes to see such an outpouring.

God Bless every one of you!

I too will say a prayer for you.  Mass General is a great hospital.  I send hugs to you.


THank you Ms.DarthVada!

Mass General is really wonderful, I agree.  I am amazed at the efficiencly there, not to mention the equipment they use!!!
TRaffic was a bit held up there today due to the supposed Bomb THing that Red posted about on the front page. I was pleasantly out of it, but the people were talking about it later in the afternoon. I guess it created havoc for people trying to get to the hospital .



It did indeed!  My husband was stuck down there for hours.  MGH was able to cure a serious infection my son had and almost lost his arm back in 98, something that we  were terrified to go through.  I've been there so many times, I can drive there without getting all stressed out.  

Good luck on the 9th,  I'll say prayers for you.

Dear Art Colley, I haven't been around much but I just checked in tonight and saw that you are having surgery next week.  I will keep you in my prayers that all will go well, that God will guide the surgeon's hand, and you will enjoy a quick recovery.

I am also asking for prayers for my daughter who unexpectedly lost her job today as a paralegal.  She is in shock and is devastated.  She had no idea this was coming and we are very worried about her.  Your prayers for help for her in getting through this and finding another job soon would be much appreciated.  TIA.

We have a friend who found out this past week has a tumor in his lung and lymph involvement in the chest area.  He has an appt. 2/3 to find out the course of treatment.  Please add him to your prayers.  Thanks.

I am totally embarrassed to say that I thought this thread was locked and so I ignored it and didn't notice that it was getting longer or the date of the last posts.

But people mentioned several times today on the lively that they had read here so at long last I opened my eyes and came over.  I feel so awful that so many of my friends here have been in pain and I have not even known it.

I feel like I have gotten to know you all - even those I've never directly spoken to... from your posts your personality, opinions, humor, etc. impact me greatly and I consider you friends.

So I apologise for not knowing of your suffering and I will include each and every one of you in my prayers.  

Affectionately,
Beans

i would like your prayers on tuesday of next week...my dad will be undergoing back surgery. he has a herniated disc and bone spurs pressing against nerves and has been in some awful pain for the last 3 weeks. my dad was such an active, physical, do-it-all type person and this has been such a shock to him and my mother. i know all you monkey's will help me lift him up in prayer for a successful surgery!

Yes, this thread is very important.

Cuz,  sorry to hear about your dad.  I will certainly pray for him and a speedy recovery.  I'll pray for your mom too because she'll have to be strong for him.  

I got a call this morning - my little nephew who just turned one last Sat. was put into the hospital with RSV.  They said his breathing was at 70% capacity and he was in pretty bad shape.  My SIL is spending the night with him tonite.  I'm not sure if we should pray more for little Nicholas or for my brother who is at home babysitting the 5 and 2 yr olds.  LOL  

Hugs to everyone in pain.

Hey Art I am not Frijole but here is a link to RSV.

http://pediatrics.about.com/od/childhoodinfections/a/05_rsv.htm

the meaning stands for
RSV or Respiratory Syncytial Virus

More like a cold but can cause serious health problems especially the way Frijole described it with 70% lung capacity.

Sorry, and thanks for looking it up Sam.  The little fella is struggling to breath and sleep.  They put a brace (like a piece of wood) from shoulder to hand to keep him from bending his right arm as it has an IV in it.  He is pretty mad about that - seems like he will definitely be right handed! ha.  He does think the plastic tube is worthy of biting though.  

There's been progress but he can't go home yet.

Art, best wishes to you on Friday.  You're in my prayers.

Art: you've been in my prayers and will remain there, hon!

Cuz: I'll keep your Dad in my prayers also, as I will for Frijolie's nephew.

May God shower His Blessings on those lifted up and wrap His Healing Hands around them!

I'm also looking back to concerns that have been brought here and will remember them all in my prayers!

God Bless, and may this week be full of miracles!

Hi everyone!

Please say a prayer for my mother.  My mother called my sister at work today with chest pains, tightness in her chest, and shortness of breath. Her bp was 132/102 and pulse 124. She's been having chest pain for a few months now and for years heart palpatations, and was scheduled for a stress test later this month.

My sister took her to the emergency room and they admitted her into the hospital to run test every 6 hours with EKG. Her bp is around 124/78 and pulse almost normal. So it seems she is stabled now. They are keeping her over night for observation and run more test.

I pray that she is not about to have cardiac arrest on us and pass. She is only 72 yrs old. I'm not ready for my mother to leave this world just yet. She has a lot of  unneccesary anxiety and stress in her life from my nephew. Going to try and convence mother to come live with hubby and I. She is so hard headed and willful will take a lot of fast talking.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

God bless~

Thank you Artcolley. You too are in my thoughts and prayers and well wishes for a speedy and healthy recovery after your surgery.


UPDATE:
My mothers EKG came back abnormal but the docters feel she did not have a heartattack but not positive. (Tipical navy hospital) They are sending mother outside to another hospital that has heart specialist. She is also scheduled for Thursday for an echo cardiogram sonogram? She is also a borderline diabetic and takes pills for it. Today her bloodsurgar was high so they gave her an insulin injection. She is stable now and they are releasing her to go home under doctors directions to relax and take it slow.  Like my mother will do that. She is so darn willful. I guess it's what keeps her feeling young. If she stopped she may die, or so she says.
Will keep all informed.

I just would like to let everyone know that My Mom is finally moving to a rehab tommorow,(again). Two weeks ago, I rushed my Mom to the hospital for emergency surgery. She has been through the ringer in the last two weeks, and a couple of days I didn't know if she was even gonna come home. She had a perforated bowel, and was becoming toxic. They did the surgery to correct that, removing part of her intestines, and yes, she has a colostomy bag on. She has Multiple Sclerosis, and just  November had broken her hip. I went to the hospital every day for the last two weeks to see her, as my sister was in Mexico.Mom developed fluid in her lungs, they said from her heart. Mom was talkin stupid and saying she wish she could just "walk off the earth". She is depressed. However, today, for the first time in the last two weeks, she looks better and she sounds more hopeful. Prayers have been and will be appreciated. The monkeys are the greatest!

None,  you are right - it is Cuz's DAD and I am sorry I goofed up Cuz but it's the thought right?

Little Nicholas is at home - his mom has stayed home from work to give him treatments.  That RSV stuff is serious.  Poor little feller... but he wasn't home 5 mins. and he was pulling his big sister's hair and laughing so you know he'll heal faster at home.  

Everyone else in need - keep the faith and know I pray for you daily.

Hey guys. I'm remembering all and Art, I know the time's approaching for your surgery.........you are steadfastly being lifted for total healing and easy fast recovery.

I have a prayer of thanks to share and also one of concern:

I just got in from the hospital. Many of you may remember a special friend I have mentioned on occasion named John, who I work with. We were on our way to a funeral for an employee's husband when we had a bad wreck. I was driving and a man exiting from a nursing home complex, pulled right out in front of me onto the four lane I was traveling. I didn't even brake, there was just no time. Thank God for airbags, and thank God I wasn't speeding. Both cars were totaled but the man is just fine despite having to be pulled out of his vehicle with the aid of the "Jaws of Life" cutting off the roof of his car. John's knee was shattered and shin cracked. He is in the hospital and will have surgery tomorrow. I have a fractured top vertabra and am wearing a collar and ankle brace, but I'm fine.
I'm so very grateful, that God was merciful and allowed us all to be "fixable". Even though the man was cited for causing the accident, I can't imagine living with the knowledge that a vehicle I was driving was involved in a fatality. God knows what we can deal with, and He protected me. Of the three of us, he's the only one that walked away without a scratch. I can't even describe the horror in my gut when I got my bearings and couldn't see him in the car. After impact my car crossed the grass median and stopped 3 feet into the lanes of oncoming traffic. It was a miracle that no other car was involved. Thank you God!!
Please remember John and the surgeons tomorrow...............he's on a morphine drip and in no pain right now, but I'm worried about long range repurcussions.
Thank you all for giving me a safe and loving place to ask for help. Whether you realize it or not, you are an unspoken prayer answered. God Bless you and keep you!

CBB  You and John have my best wishes for a speedy and full recovery.  Please take care of yourself and be sensible by not expecting to be able to do everything you are used to doing for a while.    Your angels were certainly protecting you and I know they will continue to care for you.  Sending you hugs and prayers.  Yes the monkeys are a wonderful group of loving and caring people and it is great to know you can come here and ask for help for anything at any time.

MONKEYS Hugs and prayers for all monkeys and their loved ones needing help and healing.  I include each and every one of you each night in my prayers.  God is love.

Sunny, I'm glad that you're feeling at least a little better; I know you've had a time since that fall.

Y'all have probably heard/read about a poster called FocusFactor, from The Clue Bus (I don't know if she ever posted at SM), whose son, a paramedic in some icy state up north, was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident; he's in very serious condition and his prognosis is uncertain.  Posters from several boards have been lighting candles and praying for him. Lots of posters have put aside their differences in this situation to express support for this grieving mother and this young man who has helped so many others in his career.  I thought some of y'all might want to remember this young paramedic in your prayers, too.

Post by: Bobo2 on February 09, 2007, 09:47:45 AM
Sunny, I am glad  that you are feeling better.  It sounds miserable, but I'd say you are lucky your injuries were not much worse if you took a fall off a tall ladder.  

My hubby spent 2 weeks in a trauma center following an auto accident, and we got to know the other patients pretty well.  The most serious injuries were from ladder falls, even more so than most of the auto accidents, including one quadraplegic.  It certainly has made me leary of ladders.

Post by: crazybabyborg on February 09, 2007, 12:04:35 PM
Hi guys. I wanted to see if there might be any word from ArtColley. She's in my thoughts and prayers.

Update on John: The "knob" on the upper end of the bone going into the knee was broken off and pushed into the bone. The surgeon was unable to salvage it as he had hoped, so he replaced with a plate and screws. We'll just have to wait and see if/how much that will restrict motion range. There will be "arthritis like" pain there and again, we'll have to wait and see to what degree. Right now he has a catheter inserted in the groin with anesthsia being delivered constantly to block pain from the area going to the brain, and he's comfortable. That comes out tonight, because they want to see how tolerable the pain will be before sending him home. He will be strictly prohibited from ANY weight bearing on that leg for a minimum of 3 months. That includes driving.

The 75 year old driver of the car that pulled out in front of me is sore, but is doing well. Thank God.

I'm really stiff, right foot remains too swollen for a shoe, and could play connect the dots with bruises and make anything you want; in general, I  will be just fine. I do have a bit of a worry that may turn out to be nothing other than degenerative arthritis, but the "axis" that enables head movement has been comprimised..........it's what you WANT to break when hanging someone from the gallows. There seems to be some concern among the radiologists reading my cat scan and they want to repeat it tomorrow after the swelling has had a chance to subside a little more. In the meantime, I swore to wear the coller even while sleeping, not to raise my arms, and to lift nothing. Since I don't really feel like moving furniture right now, no problem.

I had a total hysterectomy 15 years ago, including ovaries, thus it's probably just lack of estrogen, but one side of the space around that axis is collapsed/fused. Worse case scenario is that it was crushed by the "whip". Either way, it's a good thing I know it, and carnival rides are a thing of the past. I can live with that.

Thanks for the concern, and prayers. Please continue to remember John..he's got a hard road in front of him, and I'm trying very hard to be OK enough to help take care of him when he's released.

I may not post, but will check back for updates on Art, and all the concerns brought here. I love you guys. Count on me to keep all of them in my prayers!

thanks everybody for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers...it is much appreciated.

Is the back story of this nameless young man on this site?
http://www.cluebus.com/
or this site?
http://www.thecluebus.com/

I went over to RU, because I identify the name "Focus Factor" with that site.  I saw this post:
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 09, 2007 11:36 AM, CST
I just cannot wait until tomorrow to tell the good news!
Derick is "awake". Well, he is out of the coma and breathing on his own.
That isn't exactly awake, but he is not in a coma and not on life support. Thank God.
He does not recognize me yet. He said "That's not my Mom". I should have recorded that so when he asks for money in a few months I can say "Go ask J".
--
I did some clicking around and found out his name is Derick K******.  Prayer sent by me and, I am positive, many others who don't feel the need to announce it.

Sunny, I'm glad that you're feeling at least a little better; I know you've had a time since that fall.  Thanks Darleen....I am feeling better....the latter part of 2006 was not good for me....but I am sure 2007 is gonna be a whole ot better!!

Y'all have probably heard/read about a poster called FocusFactor, from The Clue Bus (I don't know if she ever posted at SM), whose son, a paramedic in some icy state up north, was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident; he's in very serious condition and his prognosis is uncertain.  Posters from several boards have been lighting candles and praying for him. Lots of posters have put aside their differences in this situation to express support for this grieving mother and this young man who has helped so many others in his career.  I thought some of y'all might want to remember this young paramedic in your prayers, too.


I did 'hear' about it.....I don't know the psoter but I have included this young man in my prayers...he is part of an elite group who risk their lives daily to save others.. and deserves all the prayers he can get..

Sunny, I am glad  that you are feeling better.  It sounds miserable, but I'd say you are lucky your injuries were not much worse if you took a fall off a tall ladder.  

My hubby spent 2 weeks in a trauma center following an auto accident, and we got to know the other patients pretty well.  The most serious injuries were from ladder falls, even more so than most of the auto accidents, including one quadraplegic.  It certainly has made me leary of ladders.


Thanks BoBo...I know I was indeed lucky..and more than a few medical peole have told me the same thing..it could have been so much worse...and I even look at my kitchen step ladder as an enemy now!   :wink:

Hi guys. I wanted to see if there might be any word from ArtColley. She's in my thoughts and prayers.

Update on John: The "knob" on the upper end of the bone going into the knee was broken off and pushed into the bone. The surgeon was unable to salvage it as he had hoped, so he replaced with a plate and screws. We'll just have to wait and see if/how much that will restrict motion range. There will be "arthritis like" pain there and again, we'll have to wait and see to what degree. Right now he has a catheter inserted in the groin with anesthsia being delivered constantly to block pain from the area going to the brain, and he's comfortable. That comes out tonight, because they want to see how tolerable the pain will be before sending him home. He will be strictly prohibited from ANY weight bearing on that leg for a minimum of 3 months. That includes driving.

Oh my ....we will all pray for the best best outcome for John
The 75 year old driver of the car that pulled out in front of me is sore, but is doing well. Thank God.

I'm really stiff, right foot remains too swollen for a shoe, and could play connect the dots with bruises and make anything you want; in general, I  will be just fine. I do have a bit of a worry that may turn out to be nothing other than degenerative arthritis, but the "axis" that enables head movement has been comprimised..........it's what you WANT to break when hanging someone from the gallows. There seems to be some concern among the radiologists reading my cat scan and they want to repeat it tomorrow after the swelling has had a chance to subside a little more. In the meantime, I swore to wear the coller even while sleeping, not to raise my arms, and to lift nothing. Since I don't really feel like moving furniture right now, no problem.

I had to have 2 MRI's for my fractures to be properly diagnosed....and yes please do everything the doctors tell you to do and none of what they tell you you can;t do....I had to sleep or try to in my back brace....but I finally managed it...
I had a total hysterectomy 15 years ago, including ovaries, thus it's probably just lack of estrogen, but one side of the space around that axis is collapsed/fused. Worse case scenario is that it was crushed by the "whip". Either way, it's a good thing I know it, and carnival rides are a thing of the past. I can live with that.  :wink:

Thanks for the concern, and prayers. Please continue to remember John..he's got a hard road in front of him, and I'm trying very hard to be OK enough to help take care of him when he's released.

I may not post, but will check back for updates on Art, and all the concerns brought here. I love you guys. Count on me to keep all of them in my prayers!

So glad to see your spririt shining thru this event, please take care of  you and do just as the doctors tell you to, we need you well ok? {{HUGS}}

We'll continue prayers for John and hope he can accept such a long recuperation, at times that is the hardest part?

Elaine? How is  your mother this week? I am keeping you and she in our prayers.

Darleen, I think many of us will certainly pray for any injured paramedic to recover, godspeed.
Hi None! My Mom was moved this week from the hospital to a rehab, where she will be for 1 week, then back home. She is improving each day, thanks so much! Did your mother just have surgery also? How is she doing as well?

I am sorry I haven't been here in so long. Life has a way of kicking in and you find yourself focusing on a few certain things that need your immediate attention. You are all always in my thoughts and please know that you all are in my daily prayers...Prayers for your health, well-being, prayers that your grief may be comforted, that you and your loved ones recover from their illnesses and surgeries, prayers for those innocent people who have lost their lives senselessly and their families who are grieving...Prayers for Natalee and her family and friends...prayers that a resolution will come for her and her loved ones and that the truth comes out about who is responsible for all of this turmoil that an entire island and the United States has had to go through on their behalf.

Thank you for all being such a wonderful and caring group. My love knows no bounds for you. I can relate to so many of you and count you as my friends, for I care about you and know that you care about me. And for that, I am grateful to God for bringing me here with you.

mishy That was a beautiful post.  You said everything we all try to say.  Like a lot of monkeys I read here when I can and send a silent prayer to the All Knowing One for help, healing and comfort for my monkey friends and their families or anyone else that may be mentioned.   It always includes those whose give their time and often their lives to help others, especially those in emergency situations or war zones.  I am sure God knows who I mean and I leave it to Him and His angels to do what is His Will.
God is Love.

Monkeys,

I want to ask for your prayers for a friend of my mother's. She just found out today that her sister has lung cancer and it's gone to her brain and is in her bones. This woman has had a couple of strokes and was under impeccable doctor's care for the last several years and this was never detected. They thought she had another stroke yesterday, but it was the cancer letting itself be known. My mom's friend and her family are all in shock, and they know that the cancer is too far gone... Please pray for this family!

I also wanted to let you know that my daughter's grandmother emailed me today to let me know that her cousin's 5 year old daughter had died today of a brain tumor. She's had it for 4 years and she finally lost the battle today. Please pray for her family...they are devastated, for they have lost their baby  :cry:  :cry:

Thanks monkeys...As we all know, every prayer helps...

I just read that a past co-worker/friend of mine passed away Monday, 2/12.  Don't know the details, but do know that she was a loving, caring individual who always called me to check in.  We'd talk at length about the good & bad going on in our lives.  She leaves daughter & son, their spouses & two grandchildren.   She was only 64.

She had struggled in the past couple decades.  She had lost her retail job in her town when the store closed, her husband left her forcing her to learn to drive & take a course in business skills.  She worked with me a short while, but her job ended up being eliminated.  She then cared for & lost her parents.  I have no doubt she is with the Lord.

Monkeys,  please pray for my stepfather Pete.  He is having dizzy spells and was on a heart monitor... pulse raced up to 170!  But believe it or not after exhaustive tests... there is nothing wrong with his heart.  We went through this several years ago and he went to Mayo.  We simply don't know what to do next.

His 92 yr old mother ELECTED (yes, she's stubborn) to have surgery for carpal tunnel and is hospitalized for an infection.. not doing well.

And also on this day (Wednesday)  my 2 baby schnauzer girls are both at the vets.... and since they are 10 and 13 they have to use anethesia to clean their teeth.  Don't laugh.. I am worried sick about them.... particularly Haley the oldest.

Thank you friends.


FRIJOLE, your StepDad and his Mom are both in my prayers.

Regarding your two baby schnauzer girls, I would be worried sick and do every time my 17 year old has to have ANYTHING done that requires going to the Vet! At these ripe ages, they do become fragile.
Prayers for BOTH of them and you too, Mom !!!!

My Dad was taken from the nursing facility to the hospital a couple hours ago.  Emergency room Dr called to tell me he was not doing well.  Low blood pressure, perhaps congestive heart failure.  This all started when he caught a stomach virus going through the place on Monday.

OH no, so sorry to hear about your Dad. Will certainly keep him in my prayers.

At least it sounds as though they caught it fairly quickly, and can replace lost fluids with IV, and monitor his lung status for evidence of CHF.

Thank you, Tibro, BT, bb...anyone I may have missed....it's a little more complicated.  His directive restricts a ventilator which the doctor wanted.  He's just on oxygen & meds to bring his blood pressure up.  Last report the meds brought his BP up but not much.  Breathing with oxygen is labored.  Doc mentioned pulmonary edema to my brother...only good sign is that he didn't want to be in the hospital...wanted to get out & go home.  

I'm grasping on here.  How many chances does an 89 year old who will be 90 in a couple weeks have?  Saw him this past Saturday...he was fine...that is what life is all about.  Doesn't make it easy...and I do appreciate your prayers...yes, indeed.

My Dad was taken from the nursing facility to the hospital a couple hours ago.  Emergency room Dr called to tell me he was not doing well.  Low blood pressure, perhaps congestive heart failure.  This all started when he caught a stomach virus going through the place on Monday.  

I came down with that sinus thing again yesterday, so I'm here waiting for my brother or sister to call.  

If you can include Dad, thank you.

Sorry to hear about your dad 2NJSons.  I will include him in my prayers.

Posted in the LCD thread by CBB's daughter or SON!!


(http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c100/crazybabyborgs/StPat1.gif)

I'm sorry if I'm doing this wrong, but she's asked me over and over if I've done this and she forgot to mention that her user name was all in caps.

She's scheduled for another cat scan at 1:30 and if it's ok, she'll be able to raise her head and be back able to have her laptop. The hematoma is still on her knee and so she's still on bedrest and blood thinner.

She told me to get the last entry from her photobucket and post here, so I hope this is ok. She also said she was sorry that she was late for helping with St Patrick's Day, but that she'll try to make up for it.

If this is in the wrong place, could somebody please do whatever is needed to move it? I want to tell her it's done. Thank you


Edited to add:  I don't know if this message was from a daughter or a son.  I assumed daughter while looking at CBB's avatar.  Wrong assumption.  :wink:

I'm asking for a super duper prayer tonight for my Armenian neighbor, Aram, who is 39. I've klnown him since 1991. He was a heavy drinker of vodka shots throughout the day and evening. I'd tell him I was depressed about something and he would say when he's drpressed ... he drinks a shot of vodka and it kicks the depression out of his mind.

Anyway, I was secluded for several days and went to get my mail and noticed a worried wife talking with neighbors. She told me Aram was short of breath one night, she drove him to the ER in a hospital in Glendale, and they immediately sent him to UCLA medical center for 15 days.

His liver has totally shut down. Fluid builds up in his abdomen so she takes him every other day to have the fluid drawn out.

He lost half his weight. The docs say he has to become stronger before he can have the transplant because he could not survive the anesthesia. So he was sent home to get stronger.  But every day, he is weaker than the day before. He cannot walk without assistance, he only eats a little bit.

I visit them three times a day and he looks worse everytime I see him. I saw him sleeping and he looked dead.

I've discussed with the neighbors: he is clearly dying. I went to visit this evening and neighbors told me they are at the hospital, which alarms me as they took him to the hospital this morning.

Please say a prayer for him that his passing will be easy and he will just feel like he is floating away and leaving the illness behind. Please pray for his wife and teenage son.

Thank you.

LV, it's hard to read about Aram for Rick's cancer manifested in his liver and his hips, it is so debilitating. It's also quite painful so I pray they can relieve his pain and his wife and family can endure whatever outcome. It's a tragic situation, hopefully he feels how much you care and I think as Rick did, those who came to visit even when he was in his last days meant so much to him.

My sweetheart of a Dad passed before midnight 2/14, but on paper 2/15.  He didn't go without a mix of fight & smiles, but it was peaceful in the end.   He'll be laid to rest on Monday.  Yes, our hearts ache...he was quite the personality, and so well loved.

Thank you to all who prayed and continue to do so.  Know that I check here and will pray for you, your family & your friends, even if I don't respond personally to each of you.


2NJSons_Mom - I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad.  I will keep you and your family in my prayer for comfort during these difficult days to come.  I also pray that you will soon be able to remember him with smiles instead of tears.  (((hugs)))

Thanks so much to all of you for your prayers for my neighbor Aram. A few days after I posted my prayer request for him, I went over to his apartment for my evening visit. Door was locked. Another neighbor said to me "Hospital again." I was shocked because early that same day in the morning, he went to the hospital to have the fluid drained from his abdomen and came back home. He must have taken a turn for the worst. I heard from neighbors that he had a complete blood transfusion. I talked to his son Arthur today and asked if the docs gave an estimation of when he can come home. He said, "No, they are keeping him." Aram's wife has been sleeping in a chair by his bed for all this time. She did not come home for a change of clothes or anything. So, sadly, I think he will pass away in the hospital.

Prayers for everyone, who's friend and also for CBB and her friend to continue to heal and for LV's friend to find peace at the end of his life.

I'd also like to ask everyone to pray for an SM member who has been absent for a while, someone who brought joy to many of us daily when they could be here, and who very much needs our prayers for their health right now. It is quite serious and they wish to remain anonymous so I hope each of you can find it in your hearts to make a prayer for healing on their behalf.

Prayers for all.

None~Sistah... that person has been in my prayers daily  :(  

I also ask for prayers for a dear friend who has  a type of muscular dystrophy .. and having a very difficult time right now suffering. :( and unable to  type.  :(  a VERY caring and helpful individual.  
  Also keep in prayers mentally ill folks.. I know I have came across a few since posting,, who can get help.. and choose not to. ( I am not being rude at all)..   I guess it resorts to the saying. you can lead a horse to water.. but you cant make it drink. One can only do so much to help someone in that case.. Sad thing is.. if the person admits to being ill... and knows they are.. and won't do anything about it?  How can yah help? I gave up a month or so ago. I tryed my best. I am now hated for it.. which is FINE by me.
  I am not perfect by any means whatsoever... maybe I need prayer for myself not to be so easy manipulated.. foolish me.

I'm sorry about your friend, Angie.  I'll keep them in my prayers.

Don't ever worry about being manipulated, Angie. You are a loving and caring soul and nothing will change that.
There will always be those that will try and manipulate others, you mustn't worry about them. That is THEIR burden to carry.
So, carry on, my friend, and I will keep you in my prayers along with all the other wonderful Monkeys!

Angie, you are n't the only one who has tried to help someone who is mentally ill...I don't know if I ever told you about the guy with schitzophrenia who was homeless?  He didn't want to get back "into the system" by getting SSI, etc, so he continued to be homeless and see/hear things...Years later, I heard that he got on meds, got a job, and was a completely different person! I'm sorry the person you know won't get help. Some need more time than others...Maybe you could just pray that one day they will decide to get the help they need...

I would like to ask for prayers for my sister who is 2 years younger than me. Several of you know that she suffers from terrible migraines. Sometimes she's in bed in a dark room for 2 out of 4 weeks a month and has to take very, very strong narcotics. She has done everything we know possible to try and find the root of her headaches. She's been to a prestigious headache clinic in Michigan (I think) and she's had pain blocks in her neck and forehead numerous times. She recently went to a hormone specialist in Atlanta and they ran all sorts of tests on her and found out that her adrenal gland is not functioning at all.  Apparently she has absolutely no cortisol in her body. I don 't know what all of this means, but it's possible that she has some rare disease that she tells me can be life-threatening. I know all of this sounds really vague, but I'm just now hearing about it....

I gathered some information about the adrenal and cortisol... The outer layer of the gland, called the adrenal cortex, produces hormones including cortisol, DHEA, estrogen and testosterone. The centers of the glands produce adrenaline, the hormone named after them.

Cortisol plays a major role in the body's response to stress. In fasting, for example, it sustains the blood sugar concentration by blocking the egress of glucose into all tissues other than the critically important brain and spinal cord, while it simultaneously increases the breakdown of protein from muscle and other organs and hastens the conversion of newly generated amino acids to glucose to replenish the supply constantly being consumed by the brain.

Anyway, guys, I just don't know what to think right now. I've asked for prayers for her healing before, and now I'm asking for them again in a big way.

thanks monkeys!!

BT, I don't think it is Addison's. She's actually gaining weight...It's a rare disease of some sort, but it is not confirmed that she has it. I pray that she does not and they can find the root of these headaches and this adrenal non production and do something about it. Her Dr. prescribed her something that she says isn't really good for people to take, but since her adrenal isn't producing anything at all, she has to have it...She's still undergoing tests...

I'm passing this lit candle to the next on the prayer list. Thank you for sharing your concerns here and for allowing me the blessing of joining you in prayer. God Bless You all.

I thought I'd share a little scripture that holds a lot of promise for our submission to pray for each other:


Isa 33:2

2 O LORD, be gracious to us;
we long for you.
Be our strength every morning,
our salvation in time of distress.
(from New International Version)



Heb 4:14-16
 Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet was without sin. 16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
(from New International Version)

Ps 5:1-3
Give ear to my words, O LORD,
consider my sighing.
2 Listen to my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.
(from New International Version)



Luke 11:9-10

9 "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
(from New International Version)

Matt 18:19-20

19 "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."  
(from New International Version)

I do not know if this is where I do this, so I posted it in the other thread too..

God our Father, life of the faithful, glory of the humble,
happiness of the just, hear our prayers.

This prayer has gotten me through a lot, it was my Grandmother's favorite.

The Serenity Prayer
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it.

Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
Amen.

God Bless all the monkeys for out of the pure goodness of thier hearts they formed this group to help a family and pray for thier daughter. Where ever she is please God watch over her and her family. Give them peace in mind and in heart, let it all be resolved soon.

I pray that Saint Beuno to look over all the sick children and animals.

May God's hand guide the surgeons hands during Cubbeegirl's friend, Denise's surgery this morning.

God Bless the family that lost a daughter, let them feel peace in thier hearts that she is in a better place among angels.

I pray for LaLa's friend. and Thank God that Cubbee and her friend are doing so much better and continue to do so.

I pray for KatysMom little grand daughter to keep improving with the loving care of her son and her.

I thank God for my Mom getting through her surgery. I pray for her headaches to stop during her recovery and she can find a few night's of restful sleep.

God Bless all the Monkeys, and the people they have asked prayers for, God bless even the monkeys that haven't asked for a prayer but need one for whatever may be troubling them.

I thank God for all that we do have, and take comfort in knowing he doesn't make us go through anything we can not handle.

We are not Catholic, but my mother always liked this prayer:

"O most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, people honor and invoke you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, for I am so helpless and alone.   Please help to bring me visible and speedy assistance. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (state your request) and that I may praise God with you always."

"I promise, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you by publishing this request. Amen."

Just checking in for the first time in a week.  I'm keeping the concerns of all our monkeys, along with their families and friends, in my prayers.  Especially today all those who live in the areas of the terrible storms and tornadoes.  I pray none of our monkeys were affected.  May there be help and comfort for all of those who were involved in these tragedies, especially those who lost loved ones.

I asked three weeks ago for prayers for my daughter who lost her job, and wanted to let you know that she started her new paralegal job with a very good firm this week.  She got a raise out of it and has a really nice group to work with.  This all worked to her advantage after all.  Many prayers accomplished this and we are so grateful for God's blessings.  Thanks for adding us to your prayers.

The little girl's name is Ella Grace and she is 5 years old. Her left lung is collapsed and fluid is building up on her right lung. Diagnosis is Pneumonia.

Title: Re: PRAYER REQUESTS - Please list here
Post by: Tylergal on March 06, 2007, 05:14:41 PM
Lala's, sometimes the lung will not inflate right away. It might take time.  That she is improving or holding her own is something.

I wanted to add this, not a prayer request but of a prayer of Thanksgiving and some words of this young girl who has seen and bit through a lot the last few days and had time to reflect on what it meant to her.

This was written by one of the girls in the tornado at Enterprise High School.

___________________________________________________________
..What a nightmare.
Words can not even describe the events of today.
We were all sitting in the hall for a few hours for the "tornado drill".
Everything seemed so normal- then all of a sudden..
power goes out and then there's a gust of wind.
I woke up to find myself buried under lockers, cement walls, and the ceiling.
Everyone was screaming.. I couldn't move..
People were walking on the rubble that was on top of us
And I could feel myself being crushed.
My head was completely against my chest with my arm jutted out in an awkward position.
The stuff on top of me was bearing down on my head and neck..


Luckily, my fingers were stuck out of the rubble and lockers.
It was because of that that people realized that there were people trapped under there.
Everyone was screaming, praying, and I was just trying to focus on breathing.

A m an named Coach Harrison found me and held my fingers while we waited for the jaws of life.
It was honestly that man that saved my life for the large part.
Him talking to me and holding my fingers are really what kept me breathing and hopeful.
They finally were able to pull me out once the jaws of life had got there.
Couldn't walk.. completely covered in blood.. didn't even know who I was.

They carried me to a room so doctors could try to look me over..
I was surrounded by people who were in shock and hurt.

They tried to rush me to the hospital, but the ambulance was having trouble getting through.
A girl was in there with me, both of us on back braces,
and she couldn't even feel anything on her left side of the body.
One paramedic was sweet enough to get out and carry me to the hospital..

Finally I got in the E.R.
I got SOOO lucky and I know for sure that the Lord was truly looking out for me.
I ended up with whiplash, a concussi on, and cuts all in my head and back..
with debris embedded in them.

The girl who had been beside me under the lockers had passed away before they got to her.

This day has changed my life so much.
I know God has a purpose for me and my life.

If those lockers had fallen down just a few inches more..
I would've been completely crushed.

I've realized I am so much stronger than I had ever given myself credit for.

And I've realized that there truly are angels everywhere.
Ones like my paramedics, Coach Harrison, and all the others who helped me.. and others.. through this horrific day.

But knowing so many people have died, is the worst feeling.
It could've easily been me who didn't come back from unconsciousness and died.

Ella Grace update...surgery to remove fluid and insert chest tube went well.  Lung is re-inflating at slow rate.  Still running a slight temp...doctor says to be expected with the infection she has. Her right lung was so filled with bacteria it looked as if she had cottage cheese in it.  Appears to be the bacteria that is so difficult to treat, most likely obtain in preschool.  I can't remember the name. Could be a form of that pesky staph type that spreads quickly. They are doing more blood cultures today to assure that the antibiotic is working its magic.   She is being moved from intensive care today to a room where she can see her brother and sister.  We almost lost her yesterday, but I feel very, very certain that all the prayers that have been offered for her worked a miracle in her life.  Many, many thanks.  There is no way to express how much those prayers have meant to this dear child.

If any of you ever have the chance to donate to a worthy cause please remember to do so to your local Children's Hospital.  They did the whole hospitality thing for these parents, Ronald McDonald house and all.  Insurance will cover most expenses and the rest the hospital absorbs.  Without their expertise and these mighty prayers I fear I would be a very sad person today.  GOD IS GOOD!

Some very dear friends of ours' son was diagnosed with leukemia at age 4 and had it not been for Children's he would not be here today, either.  Daughter used to help every year with roadblock which his family organized.  Never hit home until yesterday and she said this, "Now I understand why they did what they for so many years.  It all means more than we will ever know.  I am glad I was part of it.  When is the next one, I want to help."  I just smiled.  :wink:

Thank all of you for your prayers regarding my 38 year old neighbor, Aram, when his liver shut down. The prayers worked!  

The doctors did something with a tube bypassing the liver (something like that ... there is a slight language barrier) and he came home from the hospital. He began to improve. He has an appetite, he can get up from the sofa on his own, he can walk around, go to the kitchen to find whatever food he wants, etc. He gained weight. His mind is coherent ... we watched a soccer game and made comments to each other.

I want to thank everyone for praying for Aram. I did not think he would survive.

Much love to all of you. Louise

I don't want her to do it because I don't like any unneccessary surgery but this is something she really wants so if you wouldn't mind keeping her in your thoughts tomorrow for me. It would make me feel better anyway.Thanks. I love ya'll :D

Angie - get someone to check her medication if this is a recent thing.  Can be something as simple as vitamin deficiency or prescribed drugs.
Prayers for her and your family, sweetie.  You or someone close to her need to talk to her doctor immediately.

Spooky - will be thinking of your mother.  Any operation is a risk but praying all will be well and she will be happy with the result.

MsDV - Little Abbie is in my prayers - and her mother and siblings also.  Love and strength to you all.

FYI -

I sent an email to Cheryl at the TES website asking for an update on Mrs. Miller's condition.  This is what she said:


Tim has reported that Georgeann is home from the hospital and recovering.  Thank you for all your prayers and kind words

I spoke with Ella Grace's mother today and she is so very grateful to all of you that prayed for Ella.  In fact, I even spoke with little Ella.  She was out taking a walk in the sunshine with her brother and sister.  They were walking down the road one on each side holding her hand. First time she's been out since she became sick.  She will continue with her antibiotics for a  few weeks, but she is doing great.  Her beautiful smile just made my day. Thanks again monkeys for all the prayers.

I am going to say extra prayers for all tonight since I am posting in this thread.

MS Darth Vada. We left Maine in July 1988 to move back to my hometown in Illinois to be closer to family. Let me assure you though I miss Maine still. I felt like a Mainer from the day we got there in 1971. Yes loved the old Port area. Have you tried a place called Carvers? A sandwich place with loads of sandwiches. Pricey but oh so good.

Post by: snoopy on March 21, 2007, 09:38:41 PM
I believe that God sends us little things to help comfort us.  This is something that happened to me this past week, and I know it was God reminding me that he is always there.  Always watching over us.

A few years ago while my mom was still living with us I planted a single yellow Crocha (spelling) and a purple one by moms patio door downstairs so she could enjoy them.  They come in fairly early and thought it would help her get through until the Easter Lillies and Tulips blloomed.  Mom really liked the yellow one the best, but my sister Joyce liked the purple one.  It was the prettiest purple she had ever seen.

When Mom passed away Joyce (my big sister who passed away in December) would bug me every Spring when the Crocha's would bloom that I should move them to the front yard because Mom isn't here any longer to enjoy them, and nobody can see the darn things back there.

I never did move them.  These type of flowers are bulbs and they don't move from one place to the other unless you transplant them.

This past week I noticed that there were 2 yellow flowers but no purple one.  I thought that was awful weird.  So I'm working in the front yard the other day......looking at the Easter Lillies blooming and low and behold there was...... one....... single........purple crocha right there with the Easter Lillies.  Pretty as ever.  I just stood there for a minute........couldn't decide whether to cry or smile.........I smiled and thought to myself how Joyce always did get the last word in, and also how good God is.  

Thank You Lord For Your Blessings On Me.

Monkeys...Prayers do get answered! And, God allows us to know he is present in many mysterious ways!

First off, I went to my neurosurgeon today in Boston and was "cleared". I am now free to resume my life at my own pace! :lol:

Also, a neat little story..

My Grandfather died in 1956. He had an alarm clock that stopped ticking and working on that day. I have this clock in my bedroom now. The other day I was up in the Bedroom with  my daughter, SeaMonkey , and lo and behold, the clock's alarm went off and it began ticking!!!!  THis was the FIRST time this happened since he died.
Now, to me, THAT is a message that the prayers from all of you were answered and that I have been blessed with a new life complete with all the bells and whistles of that old alarm clock!!!!

So, Thank you, All of you for all your prayers and good wishes..

Also, ALL of you are always in my prayers. Each of you is very special and I pray all your lives are filled with happiness, love, good health and prosperity!

Here is something from one of my church publications. Just a very touching little story.

Quote
"Author E.B. White's wife Katharine was an accomplished gardner who for many years wrote gardening columns for New Yorker. He wrote of her last autumn bulb planting and 'her studied absorption in the implausible notion that there would be yet another spring, oblivious to the ending of her own days, which she knew perfectly well was near at hand, sitting there with her detailed chart under those dark skies in the dying October, calmly plotting the ressurection'."

Art, I loved the story about the clock. Those are the kinds of things you cherish most because they hold special meaning.  
Snoopy, just like the purple crocus in the Easter Lily.  No doubt she's laughing at you about the last word.    My friend with chemo and radiation is doing about as well as expected.  A few bumps along the way but at this point things are looking up.  Please keep praying for this person.  The treatments are continuing and they have been difficult but I feel good about the outcome at this point. Thanks for asking.

I love that this thread is here and that I can come here to share burdens, lighten my own, celebrate mine and others victories, and join with you in prayer. I always have a sense of entering a holy place when I read this thread. I'm saying earnest prayers for all those listed and for those unspoken needs of all the monkeys.

I've said it before, but I feel like this is our chapel. There's a special place for me within my church, that I go to when I need comfort. I was Baptized there, married there, my son was christened there, my Father, Grandmother, Brother, and Mother were taken for burial from there. (http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c100/crazybabyborgs/chapel.jpg)
It is the small Chapel, very quiet and intimate and the kneeling benches are always in place, waiting. I thought I'd share it with you, because I feel the same way about this place.

Yes, CBB...it's quite a place...I, too, need some prayer...have some conflict with recent sibling choice and the overall affect on others..need inspiration from the greater power to handle it...afraid to overreact...pray that I don't...it's too tempting.

I'm remembering you 2NJ! If my own experience is at all helpful, I'll share with you what works for me in those situations. Before the encounter even happens, I pray that God will take control of my eyes, ears, mouth, legs, and also the party I'm struggling with.

Please send up a prayer or two for my dear Dad (83 but doesn't act it) who is currently in the hospital with either pleurisy or pneumonia or both.

Naturally it was "bothering" him before "he decided" to admit himself. And so my brother calls me last nite at 10 p.m. to let me know my dad is in the hospital. And my brother spent the night there the night before just in case of an emergency. Here I sit four states away wondering how come my brother didn't insist on taking Dad to the hospital right away.

MEN!

Thanks for the prayers. He's my Daddy.

Easter is so bittersweet for me since both my parents passed on at this time.  My mother loved Easter.  It was her favorite holiday and this year the dogwoods were so beautiful and I thought of her.  That was her favorite tree. She always tried to grow the pink ones but had little luck.  I went to her and my dad's graves today to leave flowers for Easter.  I miss them, but it's what happens if we are on earth.  Everything has a resolution.  Her azaleas continue to bloom each year and her camellia trees were filled with blooms this year...so she is still near me even now.  

I think of None and Snoopy with their losses this past year and know that I am not alone.  I think of Mrs. Red and her father.  I remember LEP and her mother and in two years of being here, so many of us have loved and lost. And of course my thoughts are with Natalee's family.  They too are spending another holiday without her.  We are such a diverse group and yet when necessary we come together in love and prayer.  I am so proud to say I know all of you and my prayers are always with each of you.  Happy Easter!

Lala's has such a beautiful heart, I can say this for I've met her, there is enough goodness within her to light the world.

Mishy and I were talking by phone last night, she has friends at work now with cancer and need our prayers. I also have mentioned a monkey who is suffering with the same and who needs our prayers. There is so much sickness and heartache for so many, we all need to be thankful for our health and our happiness however fleeting it is.

Mrs I am embarking on some new learning experiences too, won't be able to post much during the day but all of you are in my heart and my prayers always. If only our world were kinder to one another as we try to be for each other here, I think we could all endure the challenges so much better.

Peaches your dad is in my prayers as are you. NJSons_Mom if anyone can build a bridge it's you, I know you will, prayers for you also.

Monkeys, as None mentioned, I have a coworker who is having surgery soon regarding polyps in her colon. They removed a few small ones on Friday that were precancerous. The big one they are going after soon is suspected to be cancerous...she's a terrific and genuine woman and trusts that the journey God is leading her on will have a wonderful outcome...

Also, a coworker's wife has a fast mestatizing breast cancer. They think they got it all with a series of surgeries and she's going to undergo chemoradiotherapy soon...she won't quit smoking and has severe sleep apnea. Please pray for these, my friends....

Also I got an email from dk pen, who is in a health crisis. She's just been very sick and had her gallbladder removed. While she was at the hospital, they did an EKG prior to surgery and found that she's got some scar tissue or something around her heart and suspect that she may have had a mild heart attack...she will have a stress test soon...Please pray for her recovery from her recent surgery. She says that she's really overdone it today and she's paying dearly for it now. Please also pray that her heart is OK...

My prayers go out to all of you! Lalas, thanks for your post about Easter. Very touching...

Mishy - my prayers for your coworkers.  Hoping they have caught all their cancerous invaders in good time and they can look forward to better health in the near future.

Prayers and best wishes for dkpen.  It is hard to imagine someone can have a heart attack and not know about it but it seems to happen a lot.  I do hope she recovers quickly from the surgery and the heart tests come back clear for her.  She will have to learn to relax and take it easier from now on.

Mishy - prayers and hugs for you and your family.

My prayers and best wishes to all our Monkey friends who are not feeling very well or have loved ones who are not well or with other problems.
God bless.

Post by: Whodunit? on April 12, 2007, 10:07:37 AM
You guys always come through for me!

One of my best friends just delivered her breech baby (her first!) yesterday via planned c section and that went well so Erika is fine, but the baby, Sienna, has a transposition of the great vessels.  (Her heart recirculates oxygenated blood back to her lungs....) It's to be fixed via open heart surgery at the NC Children's Hospital this morning.  Prognosis is good and most children with this lead normal healthy lives after the correction, which is basically switching the vessels around so the blood flows correctly and not just between the heart and pulmonary system, but it IS open heart surgery which has it's own set of risks.

Can you all keep Sienna in your prayers?  She'll also be hospitalized (3 hours from here) for at least 2 months so Erika could use some thoughts as well.  

THANKS!

I am keeping all of you in my prayers and adding new ones everyday.

Who, there is a special place in my heart for the little ones that are suffering. I pray all goes well and that the Lord comforts the Mother during this trying time.

Some of our fellow Monkeys have had such a hard time of it lately..it breaks my heart.

Prayers also go out to DK.
And of course...

To all of you!
You all sure helped me along with your prayers in my time of need and I will never ever forget any of you!

Like Yapper I pray for all my Monkey friends that there needs will be met.

Whodunnit, I have a nephew who was born with Transposition of the great vessels. This was in 1975. His original surgery was a stent to keep the patent ovales open like it is in fetal circulation. I think they wound up doing that twice trying to wait until he grew a little before doing his final correction. Of course that was 32 years ago so maybe they are able to do the final correction on Newborns now.
Nephew is doing well. I pray your friends baby does also.

God is good all the time!

My dad went home from the hospital last Saturday morning.  I was surprised he didn't leave AMA!  He said the nurses could use a course in good bedside manner because they were surely lacking.  He did have a couple nurses he liked alot so I guess it all balances out.  

Thank you all for praying my Dad through this mini crisis.  Although pneumonia in someone his age(83) is cause for concer, he's on the mend.  I've talked to him several times this week and I know he's glad to be getting back to work and feeling better.

Again, thank you.  You've prayed me through my cancer this past year and a half.  I couldn't have done it without y'all and God.

I am asking for prayers for my cousin being deployed to Iraq and also one of my dearest friends.  One is too young to be going and the other too old but off they go.

So if any Monkeys feel so inclined, please pray that they both have a safe tour of duty and return well.  They are not deploying together and don't really even know each other.  My friend is almost my age but is filling a void created by Marine loss of so many officers.  One of the first helicopters shot down had three aboard.

The other is the son of my first cousin and just a kid to me.  I can't imagine him in actual combat as he still seems such a baby.  He is Special Ops so those who know about that know it can be especially dangerous.  This is his second deployment, however, and he did volunteer for it.  Well, really both of them did.

But prayers for them and all our troops would be so appreciated.

Thank you,

Anna

Hi everyone!

Thank you for the well wishes and prayers. They must be working because today I feel much better. Still taking it slow for the next few weeks. Do not want to over do it.
As sweet mishy said, I had emergency gallbladder surgery a week ago. I had been feeling sick for a couple months now and was being treated for acid reflux. Last week we learned I had a very sick gallbladder with a very large stone and a very bad perforation/infection. The EKG was abnormal which scares me most. My father passed away with a heart attack at age 44 and my brother has a couple blocked arteries. So, I will have to learn to slow down and take better care of me.

I am sending prayers to each one of you who are on the list and are in hopes for the safety for the mens lives headed for Iraq.

God bless~

Louise, our Special Monkey is un-named at their request. We have to remember this thread can be viewed by all & not just our Monkey Family. There are some pretty vile people in this world & I can understand the request for anonymity. This Special Monkeys needs positive vibes & words not the vile words of the TROLLS.

Special Monkey: Please know you are in my prayers & thoughts.
Hang tough & know we all love you. You have God & your Monkey Family on your side.

Hi everyone!

I am starting to feel much better now. Moving about easier but still taking it slow and trying to not over do it. Sometimes it's hard and I feel it the next day. God is good and he is healing me fast. Thank you for all the prayers. Prayer is a powerful thing, and I've felt it every day. God bless each and every one of you. <big hugs>


For our Super Special Monkey.....

I prayed for you today, gave thanks for your life, wished you the best, asked the heavens to bless you with good health, speedy recovery and happiness. I sent you good thoughts, surrounded you with hope and faith and love. I asked the earth to be good to you, and I asked God to show you His perfect way. I prayed for you today.

God bless~

Monkeys,

It sounds selfish for me to ask this when there are others with much bigger problems, but that stomach thing I came down with over the weekend won't go away. I need to get back to work, and I still can't eat or drink anything. My prescription medicine isn't working so I'm calling the doctor's office this morning, but I would really appreciate your prayers.

Thanks a bunch and hugs to you all.

Thanks for your prayers and kind words, guys. The doctor says I'm not supposed to eat anything for a while.  :shock:  All she wants me to do is drink clear liquids and let my digestive system rest.  Hopefully, the rest plus the medicine will get me back to normal again.

Oh well, I kept saying I needed to lose weight, didn't I?  :wink:

Please pray for my friend, June. She went in for a hysterectomy and came down with a staph infection.  What should have been a short stay in hospital has turned into nearly six weeks.  My neighbor just told me about this yesterday (she has a tendency to omit things she knows I would worry about).  June is a lovely woman with two college age kids and a wonderful DH.  (They used to live in my neighborhood).  

I am very concerned about this staph infection in light of the fact she is also diabetic.  It's all very worrisome and I can't go visit because I can't be there.  Too many germs.  Staph wouldn't be good for me.  So I sent my love with my neighbor who will visit.

Thank you in advance for prayers for June.

Post by: Tibrogargan on April 28, 2007, 08:30:31 PM
Peaches your friend June is now on my prayer list.  That is a frightening scenario - too many of these superbugs resistant to antibiotics around now.

You can do just as much good praying and sending healing thoughts from a distance, and not putting yourself in more danger after coming through your programme.  Congratulations on your effort.

Prayers also for MisGivings who lost a young man who was like a son to her by a senseless killing.  Also lost three of her pets for various reasons over a short period.

Wishing our special monkey more strength and healing.

Prayers for all our monkeys and their loved ones who need God's help at this time.

for June and all the other monkeys that have requests in here... and prayers for some monkeys that we don't hear from any more... remember So Ga Girl that had breast cancer, Magnolia, one monkey that I can only remember her first "real" name.... dang it!  KKail's grandson.. so many others, I always ask for Heavenly Father to look in here in case I miss one!


God Bless and keep each and everyone of you....

Oh when I'm down Oh when I'm down and out
When my heart is filled with fear and doubt
When I lift up my head and He lifts up my heart
Then my troubles just all roll away

Roll away Lord troubles roll away Lord
When I lift up me head and He lifts up my heart
Then my troubles just all roll away

Well I can't see the sun with my head to the ground
Tears dim my vision and weigh my heart down
But I have this feeling when I start to pray
When I lift up my head and he lifts up my heart
Then my troubles just all roll away

This is a song I sang growing up as a kid, and it just came to me this morning.  I thought of so many people when this song came to me.  My mama would just shine when us kids would sing it for her.  My sister Joyce would always chime in even though it was common knowledge that um.....well she couldn't sing worth a lick.  She was soooo funny.

And most of all I thought of all my monkey buddies with all of their worries and problems.

Ya'll are always in  my prayers.  God Bless You All.

Monkeys,

I have permission to tell everyone that our Special Monkey for whom we have been praying so hard is TerryD. He was diagnosed a few months ago with throat cancer, and has been undergoing both chemo and radiation.

Terry had a very good report from his doctor today. The doctor feels sure that the cancer has been eradicated.  :D

Thanks to all of your for your prayers and good wishes for him.

BT I'm glad you convinced him to let you share it, I think it's part miracle, part great medical leadership applied, and part his willingness to work so hard on his mindset and his efforts to follow doctor's orders. I don't know many who could have been as strong as he has been, this was stage IV and he has worked so hard it's truly amazing.

NJSons, I'm so glad your friend is healing and making progress, what good news !

In light of terryD's remission, which is a bonus to us all, and to terryD, I'd like those monkeys who are willing to pray for another friend of ours who also lives in FL...he has a heart conditon but was recently dx'd with lung cancer...lymph involvement.  I do not know the stage.  I just read an email from him that says that they want him to go to the hospital for chemo & radiation.  He feels that it's the end.  I responded with questions and encouragement, but hope that additonal intercession in prayer will help whatever will be...to be....thanks.

Great news about outr favorite peeping squirrel!  I'm glad THAT cat's outta the bag!  I am so proud of Terry.  He has probably not always been a model patient (it's a man thing, I'm sure) but he stayed focused and kept going.  He listened to his doctors and I'm sure he got plenty of advice from his online following.  

I tried to do my share of cheering Terry on.  I am amazed at how well he's done and how great he looks!  And he kept his sense of humor.  Wearing that skeleton shirt to radiation!  WHAT A RIOT!  You have to love that sense of humor!  (The staff will miss him.)  

From where I sit, you are one lucky peeping squirrel, Terry.  High five for hangin' in there, my friend.

I have not posted this yet because I didn't have all the details, but tomorrow my dad is facing serious surgery.

Remember back in November, he was in an accident where a young girl broadsided his car? At the time it seemed like he would be OK but his neck and shoulder have gotten worse with pain since then. He will now have to have 2 vertebrae fused, and they will have to go into the vertebrae (around the spinal cord) to clean up any bone spurs and arthritis that has built up in the central canal of the spinal column in that injured area. They access the area by going in through the FRONT of the neck which is a pretty tough incision to say the least.  Needless to say this is very risky. My uncle, his brother had this same procedure done a few years back and it left him in a wheelchair and hastened his death.

I am trusting that all will go well. Keep us all in your prayers. I should be back tomorrow evening w/ a report if it all goes OK.

SB ~ My husband had this about 2.5 years ago ~ vertebrae fused and something permanently inserted....looks like a door hinge  :shock:  BUT the important thing is that he is doing great, and by the way, they went through his neck, also.  His main concern was whether or not he could still flyfish  :roll: .

BACK FROM THE HOSPITAL...

Everything did go very well today. My dad said that as of tonight, he has been able to raise his left arm and that it is without pain for the first time in a long time. He hasn't been able to get that kind of motion from that arm recently at all.

The surgical area is still sore, obviously, and there was a bone graft area from the hip and it is very sore. But overall things are doing great.

Because we had such a bad experience with my uncle's surgery, we were all very apprehensive about how it would go. But so many people have told me that they had a good result with this before, that I had begun to ease up a bit. I see now that this procedure has been improved a lot and it is very efficacious now.

The doctor told me today that he is pleased with how it went, so I should be, too.

Thanks everyone for praying. Y'all are a special bunch of people.

I have not posted this yet because I didn't have all the details, but tomorrow my dad is facing serious surgery.

Remember back in November, he was in an accident where a young girl broadsided his car? At the time it seemed like he would be OK but his neck and shoulder have gotten worse with pain since then. He will now have to have 2 vertebrae fused, and they will have to go into the vertebrae (around the spinal cord) to clean up any bone spurs and arthritis that has built up in the central canal of the spinal column in that injured area. They access the area by going in through the FRONT of the neck which is a pretty tough incision to say the least.  Needless to say this is very risky. My uncle, his brother had this same procedure done a few years back and it left him in a wheelchair and hastened his death.

I am trusting that all will go well. Keep us all in your prayers. I should be back tomorrow evening w/ a report if it all goes OK.


SB,
Your father is in my prayers.  They have come such a long way with this type surgery in the past few years.  When I worked in rehabilitation, cervical disc surgery was something to be avoided unless absolutely the last resort, because the results were not always worth it.  Three years ago, I had to have a cervical disc removed. They went through the front... which I had never heard of.  My surgery was done at 6 a.m. on Wed and I went home at 10 a.m. on Thursday.  Within 2 weeks, I was almost completely back to normal, and have had no residual problems.  I am mid-50's, so I know any surgery is more serious for someone your father's age.  But, they can do so much more now that a few years ago.  Please let us know how he does.

BACK FROM THE HOSPITAL...

Everything did go very well today. My dad said that as of tonight, he has been able to raise his left arm and that it is without pain for the first time in a long time. He hasn't been able to get that kind of motion from that arm recently at all.

The surgical area is still sore, obviously, and there was a bone graft area from the hip and it is very sore. But overall things are doing great.

Because we had such a bad experience with my uncle's surgery, we were all very apprehensive about how it would go. But so many people have told me that they had a good result with this before, that I had begun to ease up a bit. I see now that this procedure has been improved a lot and it is very efficacious now.

The doctor told me today that he is pleased with how it went, so I should be, too.

Thanks everyone for praying. Y'all are a special bunch of people.


GREAT NEWS!  I did not finish the thread before I posted... you and your family will continue to be in my prayers.  Just be sure he does not do ANY lifting, even light things, for three weeks or so.  I am praying for a full and rapid recovery.

Please offer a prayer for my Aunt Doris who suffered a serious stroke on Thursday. She had to have 2 surgeries, 10 hrs and 4 hrs, for brain bleeds on Friday, and also suffered renal failure. My uncle had been reluctant to disconnect the ventilator over the weekend, even though they were not given much hope.  She is only 64, but is diabetic, and had bilateral mastectomies with f/up chemo and radiation less than 5 years ago. She has been in a drug-induced coma since Sat.

Yesterday, the ventilator was disconnected for short periods, and she is breathing on her own.  They may remove it tomorrow. There is indication that kidneys may be starting to function again.  We still do not know if she will recover, but, she has a long rehab ahead if she does. My uncle is lost... they have been married 45 years.  Thank you for remembering them in your prayers.

I saw her this afternoon at the hospital and she was happy, stoned on meds and very thrilled since she does NOT need the major surgery!!!!

Hi Monkeys,  I am asking for a prayer for surgery I have tomorrow.  I have  polyps on my vocal chords and they each need to be removed separately.  My first one is tomorrow.  I was told it doesn't look cancerous, but they will do a biopsy.  I am really scared and would feel comforted tomorrow knowing a few people are praying.

I won't be able to to talk at least a week and that scares me after thinking of all the things we use our voice for.  I am afraid of feeling helpless and I'm sure annoyed when I can't communicate like I want.  I also fear my voice will either be worse or nonexistant if something goes wrong.

I know I am blessed and am putting my faith in God.  Most of all, I pray it is not cancerous.

I see so many in much more need than myself and feel humbled to even ask.   I keep you all in my prayers as well.   God Bless you all!

There is no doubt, when they put me under, I will feel all my monkey friends by my side.  Ange, I will definately be thinking of you.

And by the way, this is so strange because awhile back,  I had a dream of being in the hospital and several Monkeys were there to take care of me (not even a family member was there).  I don't even know what I was in the hospital for or which of you exactly was with me, as I've never met any of you face to face, but Monkeys were with me.  So what does that say about you all? Your special even in my dreams.

Dear Monkey Friends,
Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers on behalf of my aunt, Doris.  Sadly, she passed away about 6:45 tonight.  Please continue to pray for my uncle, Loran, their two daughters and four grandchildren.  My aunt was a very special lady, especially to her family.  It will take them some time to adjust to this loss.  

While I do not post often on this thread, I read it daily.  It is a great comfort to read the thoughts expressed here, especially on a bad day.  Thanks for the continued thoughts and prayers for my parents.  They are both on hospice, and continue to decline.  

Please know I remember the needs expressed here in my prayers, and am proud to be a part of the SM "community" of such caring people.

Thanks again.

Tib and Mrs. Red,

Thank you for those words.  Yes, she was very special, and only 63.  There is one positive in all this.... my parents' dementia means they will not have to grieve.  They were so close to this aunt and uncle.  My cousin told us that her mom had to leave now, so she would be there to meet my folks when their time came.  

My aunt spent 15 years as a nursing home director, working especially well with families of patients with dementia.  She cared for my grandmother who also had Alzheimer's.  My mother was 12 years older than this half-sister, but helped raise her, and they were always extremely close.  Her death leaves a big hole in our family.

I am home and doing well from surgery.  It was not as bad as I thought it would be.  I know the power of prayer!

As I will, and know others will continue praying for you in need, I hope all of you know that power and find comfort in it and know so many here really do care for ALL of YOU in need.  We alone can in no way do it on our own, but we can raise you up to God in prayer and know he will take care of you and your family!

I kept the monkeys with me, as I went under.  I know it was minor, but it eased my fear, knowing if something happened, there were many praying.

God Bless you ALL!

I kept the monkeys with me, as I went under.  I know it was minor, but it eased my fear, knowing if something happened, there were many praying.

God Bless you ALL!

I'm glad you are home and everything went well.

Hello All you wonderful Monmkeys.
 Thank you so much for keeping me in your prayers. I  think during my drugged stooper I saw friendlky little monkeys all stsanding in trees looking down on me. Seriously, I didn't feel alone and felt protected, from all your prayers no doubt. :)

 I didn't have the surgery we thought i might neeedd. Thank goodness for that! BUT, they took a sample to biopsy, and I will know next friday that outcome..so my nerves are still a bit raw thinking of the stuyff they may say. The unknown is always worse.

 I am on some wonderful meds that make me a bit loopy..of course they are just harmless meds but with me even two tylenols would affect me lol

 I will catch up and all when i am a bit more "all there".

 Thamnk you all again, and my prayers to all the monkeys and families.

 Sincerely,
 SeaMonkey

OMgoodness, I am so glad to hear that DiHannah and Seamonkey got through their surgery OK, though terribly sorry to hear DiHannah is at the ER today...

Lexie, I am saying prayers for your family...I can never find the right words to say at times like this...Just know that we are all thinking of you and praying for you and your family...Your aunt sounds like she was a wonderful woman who enriched so many lives and dedicated herself to helping others.

MrsRed...I am saying prayers for you as well. I've been keeping you in my prayers for quite some time now...I don't want to leave anyone out, as you are all in my prayers, but it does help to read your requests so that I can give those who are in real need at the time some special prayer time...

And now I have a prayer request for you. Actually it's from my coworker Susan who recently had surgery for a colon cancer scare. As many of you already know, she did not have cancer (Praise the Lord!) but the Dr. said it would have been cancer within the year. Her husband's cousin has been in a terrible car accident and needs all of your prayers...I'll paste her email below:

"I have a very urgent prayer request for you all, and for your churches if you have a prayer chain.

Henry's cousin, Clydean (named for her 2 grandfathers) was in a very bad car wreck late Thursday and is in ICU in critical condition at UAB. She has 2 broken feet, a broken femor, a broken neck, broken ribs, broken fingers, bleeding in her liver and spleen, and a cut in the aorta in her heart. The doctors have been trying for 2 days to get her stable enough for surgery for her heart, but her other injuries are so severe that they haven't been able to do anything yet.

She was driving on a 2 lane road when a car on the other side went to pass a vehicle and hit her head on. Then the car behind her broadsided her. It took the emergency workers 30 minutes to get her out of the car and she wasn't breathing when they first got to her.

Her 17 year old son, James, has a broken leg but has had surgery and is doing well.

I know it will take nothing short of a miracle to get her through this, so that's what we're praying for. I would really appreciate all your prayers."

Mishy  Clydean and James are in  my prayers.

Post by: Kimmy53 on May 14, 2007, 12:00:04 PM
Lexie:  I am so sorry to learn of your aunt's passing.  I will pray for comfort for your uncle and their children - as well as you and the extended family.  It is so hard to lose someone so young - We lost my MIL way too soon as well.  May your memories of the love she has showed you sustain you during this difficult time.

Seamonkey - you are in my prayers for a good outcome.  

Dihannah - hope all is well with you - prayers for your recovery.

Mishy - I will certainly lift up Clydean in prayer.  Please keep us informed

My coworker gave me an update on her husband's cousin, Clydean and I wanted to share it with you all:

The doctors are planning to do surgery on her leg Friday if she’s stable enough. I also found out that she’s coded 3 times since she’s been in the hospital. Although she’s only around 47, she’s had heart problems (including a bypass) prior to the wreck, so it’s a miracle she’s made it this far. Meanwhile, we just keep praying!

As she was recovering pretty well from that, she had a perforated intestine, so she went in a few months ago and they had to take out part of her intestines and put a colostomy on her.....Tommorow, she is having that reversed, so they can take that bag off of her.

All these prayer requests for such special people.  I often come to this thread and think I need to ask for prayer and then I read what everyone else is going through and I just start praying.  Then I realize that I really don't have any problems that need immediate attention.  I just praise the Lord for offering his grace and mercy to us all and then things aren't so bad.

I need to ask you monkeys for urgent prayer for a friend of mine who I just learned had a heart attack last night at church.  Rhonda is only 29 years old and she passed out and was not breathing during a youth program at church.  She was given CPR until the ambulance arrived and at the hospital they discovered she had a massive heart attack.  

Rhonda is such a good Christian woman, has 3 kids, the youngest is not a year old.  The Doctors tell us that if she can make it the next 48 hours, she may survive.

Please pray for Rhonda... Thanks.[/

Oh Kimmy!  That is soooo young!  I pray she makes it and a has a full recovery.  Praying for her family too.

Lala's you are so right.  I now feel silly asking for prayers over my fear of a minor surgery.  As much as I appreciated it.  But it's true, so many more important needs everywhere else.  It does make one realize how blessed we are.

Elaine, prayers for your mom. I bet she can't wait to get rid of that bag!! Hallelujah for her!!

Monkeys, another update on Clydean:

the doctors have not been able to do surgery on Clydean, as they had planned. They found a blood clot in her leg last night and put a filter in her groin area to keep the clot from traveling. She's still not responding like she was earlier, and they did another MRI today. Her leg is pretty well shattered, so I guess if the doctors can keep her stable that’s the first priority.

Please continue to keep this woman in your prayers!!

Post by: Kimmy53 on May 21, 2007, 10:55:50 AM
Thank you all for the prayers for Rhonda.  She is doing better, they found out that she had a torn Aorta.. and that caused her heart attack... I am not sure what they will have to do to repair it, The information I am getting at the time is thru Grandmothers, so bless their souls, it can sometimes be not very accurate.  She is awake somewhat, I understand they brought her baby to her and allowed her to hold him for a little bit.  He is 6 months old.  I am sure holding him helped her immensely.

She is gaining strength, and was able to take in clear liquids... She is still a sick girl, so please continue your prayers.

I am convinced all of our prayers have made the difference.  She was in very very bad shape, she coded twice on the way to the hospital, and the EMT's brought her back....and now for her to be able to hold her baby, it is nothing short of a miracle.


Title: Re: PRAYER REQUESTS - Please list here
Post by: Tibrogargan on May 21, 2007, 08:07:29 PM
Kimmy - that is such great news.  I am sure holding the little one will give Rhonda even more strength and incentive to get better.
From what little I know they would have to either sew the aorta, graft or replace with a stent depending on the damage done.  People do survive this.
Keeping her in my prayers, along with all the other monkeys and friends listed here.

Kimmy I am so sorry to hear about Rhonda, I will certainly keep her in my prayers for a full recovery.

dihannah, I regret I didn't make it by this thread to know of your surgery, it's always frightening I think when our senses are at risk, such as our voice or our eyes. I hope you are healing well and you are in my prayers.

Angie, Ron needs many prayers too and I do hope he can learn to live with this, he does have a loving family it appears and hopefully that will be great support and encouragement for him.

I usually don't ask for prayers for myself, but I think this warrants it.  I had a growth on my forearm removed that came back as a malignant melanoma.  She said it was very thick, level 5 as far as thickness goes.  I have no staging yet as no lymph nodes were taken, yet.  I recently had a scan of my chest, abdomen & pelvis done for other reasons and they were clean except for a few old age calculi in the renals, adrenals & ovary.  That part is good news - no mets there.  I would need a bone and brain scan most likely looking for mets.  I see the ONC on the 4th for staging & plans for treatment.  The surgeon said the margins to be taken on the arm would be disfiguring and would require reconstructive surgery.

I'm very scared and could use the power of prayer to help me get through all of this whatever the outcome is.

THANKS!!!  I'll keep you posted.

Shining and lovely again.
God, make me brave for life; much braver than this.
As the blown grass lifts, let me rise
From sorrow with quiet eyes,
Knowing Thy way is wise.
God, make me brave, life brings
Such blinding things.
Help me to keep my sight;
Help me to see aright
That out of dark comes light.

Hey SunFreak? I was just reading through the posts here. We are all circling you and have our prayer swords drawn to face this down. You just rest securely in the middle cause we're looking out and nothing's getting by us!

Hon, we are shoulder to shoulder standing in the throne room on your behalf.  :wink:

SunFreak, you're in my prayers too. My sister had a malignant melanoma and I was very frightened for her. My own dermatologist told me not to read the literature on the subject (as I was doing) and the nurse told me that her sister had had it seventeen years earlier and was now doing fine. I took great comfort in that. Now I can tell you that my sister has now gone seventeen years or more after her melanoma was removed from her shoulder/neck. She's married now and has a wonderful ten year old boy. I hope you can relax a little knowing that many people come through this and you can too.

My niece had a melanoma removed from the front of her shin.  She is only thirty and has a few mets but did the chemo at Vandy and she is in remission right now.  I will pray for you as I pray for her, both of you.

Also Brother in Law did experimental treatment at Vandy and beat lymphoma.  I hope you can go to Emory as they will have the same things I think.  Also my sister in law who did not speak a word of English went to Cancer Treatment of America, well I took her she didn't drive.  We did both chemo and radiation and she beat breast cancer, been twelve years now.  I had to be with her every minute because of the language and her being in a foreign country and scared but she made it and she beat this thing.

You can, too, and that is my prayer for you that you will get these same good results that so many do these days!

Anna

Just found out that one of my youngest daughter's friends from college was killed yesterday afternoon in a car accident. My baby is very sad and is still in Florida away from home.  This young girl just graduated on Saturday and was engaged to be married.  Her whole life was before her.  Such a loss!  Please pray for her family, fiance and friends!

I think I am speaking from a mother's heart here in saying this is a fear all of us mother's carry with them.  The ending of a precious life before it has fully matured and given back wonderful things to the world.  I will keep your daughter's friend in my prayers.  When these horrible tragedies occur nothing can comfort and nothing can heal.  I often wonder why life is so cruel.  Tell your daughter that there are people remembering her and her friend and family in their prayers.  It seems so simple a thing to do, yet it gives so much later.  Love and hugs.

Thank you Lala's and Kimmy!  Your concern will mean a lot to her!  Just found out that the young lady was on her way to visit her mom and step-father and was only 4 miles from home when the accident occurred. Her wedding was to be in September.  She was in a curve and tire dropped off the road and she overcorrected.  Ran off the road into some trees and the car flipped and landed on the roof.  You're right, Lala's it is every mother's nightmare! I did not know they young lady myself but my baby is sad and that makes me hurt! Thank's to all my caring monkeys and your support.

I usually don't ask for prayers for myself, but I think this warrants it.  I had a growth on my forearm removed that came back as a malignant melanoma.  She said it was very thick, level 5 as far as thickness goes.  I have no staging yet as no lymph nodes were taken, yet.  I recently had a scan of my chest, abdomen & pelvis done for other reasons and they were clean except for a few old age calculi in the renals, adrenals & ovary.  That part is good news - no mets there.  I would need a bone and brain scan most likely looking for mets.  I see the ONC on the 4th for staging & plans for treatment.  The surgeon said the margins to be taken on the arm would be disfiguring and would require reconstructive surgery.

I'm very scared and could use the power of prayer to help me get through all of this whatever the outcome is.

Oh, Sunfreak.  Prayers for you, sweetie.  Please keep us posted.

THANKS!!!  I'll keep you posted.

One of the best lessons I ever got from my Dad was on a country gravel road in rural Gage County.  We took his car out and he had me drop a wheel into the gravel on the side.  And then showed me how to drop the rear wheel in and THEN correct the front and then the rear wheels back onto the roadway.  We did it on gravel, and on paved road.  If you learn what to do when you drop a wheel off, you can get yourself back to normal without over correcting and heading for oncoming traffic.  

In light of this tragedy, I will be teaching my dear daughter the lesson on dropping a wheel.  I think it came up the other day when we were driving together but it bears repeating.  And practicing.

I would challenge those of you here who have young drivers and even not so young drivers to have a discussion about this.  Many accidents originate in somebody dropping a wheel and overcorrecting.  

Again, I am so sorry for your friends.

My dear Sunfreak.  One of the first people to call me when I was diagnosed was a chorus friend who proceeded to tell me HER cancer story.  Turns out she's a 20 year survivor of stage 4 melanoma.  

Don't borrow trouble until you've seen the oncologist.  

Call me if you need anything.  You know I'm just across town.  And here for ya.

Hugs and my prayers are with you always.

Sunfreak & Casa, Kimmy, and all Monkeys, I will say an extra prayer for monkeys, for Natalee's family and loved ones this weekend.  I know my fear of melanoma would be no less than yours.   We all know those who have survived and done well.  We all know those who did not.

Sunfreak, I correspond daily with a very good friend who was 24 when her melanoma was diagnosed.  She was told that limb salvage was out of the question.  She was an active tennis player, horseback rider and very active.  She refused to have her legs amputated.  She outlived all her physicians at Emory and has a beautiful daughter who just finished her doctoral work there.  Her daughter was born when she was 33.  Her daughter has undergone kidney transplantation and still achieved all this.  Mom has one leg smaller than the other, but she has a daughter who has done so much and she has lived a long life and remains happy to this day that she made the decisions she made throughout all this.  

If you would like to be in touch with her, she lives in Marietta.

SunFreaks ... I would be there there holding your hand if I lived in your area.  However ... if a Monkey is unable to accompany you ... you know we will be upholding you in our thoughts and prayers.

SunFreaks ... members of the family of God are held together by their common bond ... shared faith.  If you were to contact a church in your area and share your need ... I am sure you would be put in touch with a sister/brother in Christ who would be honored to be go along with you to your appointment ... to uphold you in your trial.  SunFreaks ... all you have to do is take a risk beyond your comfort zone  and ... reach out.  Remember ... strangers are friends we have yet to meet.

He will embrace you.  You will never again walk through the storm alone.  I comprehend ... to some extent ... what you are experiencing ... seventeen years ago I was traveling down a similar road.

Sunfreak I'm praying your new oncologist guides this for you, so that you can focus on healing and not worry, you remain in my prayers daily for strength and healing.

As an FYI to those wanting to learn more about melanoma, a friend I made when Rick was ill is featured this month in Duke's Healthline newsletter. Jane qualified for the immune-therapy treatment Rick was rejected for due to his brain tumors, we've stayed in touch and it was a blessing to see her smiling face arrive in my mail  on Friday. This is the online copy http://www.dukehealth.org/HealthLibrary/Newsletter

FYI to all as well, a recent study now confirms that tanning bed use increases your risk for melanoma by 50% so please take that to heart. Jane also speaks to this in her 'story' in the newsletter, but I know Sunfreak and Rick didn't frequent tanning beds. I just felt it was a good new confirmed fact to share with all of you.

Please keep Angie's hubby in your prayers. I got an email from her saying she was on her way to the hospital to see him. He's had an infection and some sort of hole in his foot for a week that the doctor has been treating with antibiotics, but it's worse and his leg is all red now. They're keeping him in the hospital to try to figure out what's going on. (Sounds like a brown recluse bite to me, but I'm not the doc.)

Good that he went to the ER!

Introduction
Cellulitis (sel-u-LI-tis) is a potentially serious bacterial infection of your skin. Cellulitis appears as a swollen, red area of skin that feels hot and tender, and it may spread rapidly.

Skin on the face or lower legs is most commonly affected by this infection, though cellulitis can occur on any part of your body. Cellulitis may be superficial — affecting only the surface of your skin — but cellulitis may also affect the tissues underlying your skin and can spread to your lymph nodes and bloodstream.

Left untreated, the spreading bacterial infection may rapidly turn into a life-threatening condition. That's why it's important to recognize the signs and symptoms of cellulitis and to seek immediate medical attention if they occur.

Angie be glad he's at the hospital, my nephew was swinging a golf club in my parent's house when he was 12, accidentally hit my father in the shin and Dad was wearing shorts. It turned into an infection and destroyed a good inch layer of Dad's skin over an area of about 6" by 8" by the time it was under control again? So I'm glad they caught it early, it was so painful for Dad for months and months but he never once fussed at my nephew either, just suffered through it. Doesn't hubby have high blood pressure? Dad did too and I think that impacted circulation too, so he needs to be careful in that he's working in construction  :?

Angie be glad he's at the hospital, my nephew was swinging a golf club in my parent's house when he was 12, accidentally hit my father in the shin and Dad was wearing shorts. It turned into an infection and destroyed a good inch layer of Dad's skin over an area of about 6" by 8" by the time it was under control again? So I'm glad they caught it early, it was so painful for Dad for months and months but he never once fussed at my nephew either, just suffered through it. Doesn't hubby have high blood pressure? Dad did too and I think that impacted circulation too, so he needs to be careful in that he's working in construction  :?


 Yep High BP as well. ER nurse told me to bring his meds up.. and I did. Then hubby calls tonight and says they want him to take their meds? I said WTH? Guess they can charge his insurance more.. So stupid to give him the SAME BP meds he has there with him.. :roll:  Anything to make a buck. Well his construction boots and sweaty feet Im sure havn't helped much. Dont get it? it WAS better..? Now came back and worse?  :?

Hey Angie, thinking of you, sweetie.  Prayers for hubby and hope specialist's verdict is good. He is definitely in the best place where they can monitor him and not at home where he might just let things go for a bit longer...... You know what men can be like.  "Don't fuss" - then they cause a big panic.
Aussie hugs to you.

Angie~
I'm so sorry to hear that your hubby is in the hospital. I will be adding you, him & your family to my prayers for these hard times in your lives and I'm also sending you great big {{{{HUGS}}}} your way.

To all monkeys~
You are all in my thoughts & prayers each & everyday. You are all one of a kind with extremely great big hearts filled with lots of love & care.

Beth, Dave, & your families~
With a heavy heart for you all, I will continue to pray for you each  & everyday. I'll continue to pray for Natalee to be brought back to you where she belongs as well as justice to be served in this case. There's not a waking moment, sometimes in my sleeping moments, that my thoughts aren't with you and focused on Natalee. I've never met Natalee but I feel that I have come to know her thru what her life was like, her family & friends accounting of her life. I know the Lord brought me here to SM to meet such wonderful people like all the monkeys with hearts of gold who have the desire to see justice for a sweet young lady whose life was snuffed out way to early by some self-centered jerks. I could go on with a rant of how I truly feel about these so called people, but I won't for now. I'm so proud to be a part of SM and to truly know what caring, love & carrying one anothers cross is really about.

Roos~  :)

I came to post this just in case anyone else wanted it.  I have tried to keep it through the years because it means a lot to me.  I needed and I still need it and others might, so if you do, please use it.

Dear Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins and ask you to forgive me and save my soul from hell. Lord I accept by faith your blood sacrifice upon the cross as the payment for my sins. Take my sins away and control my life, for I give myself to thee. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayer and saving me eternally from hell, for I pray by faith in the name of Jesus. Amen.

I will finish.  Angie, I just went through a bout of cellulitis.  I sometimes will mention I am not having a good day but I will not say why.  I know that Klaas knows my underlying problem and these other minor difficulties I have are secondary to my poor immune system.

I had one of the MRSA infections and it was treated quite successfully with vancomycin and then clindamycin.  That's not to say all of them respond to the same antibiotic nor do all cellulitic infections respond favorably as mine did.  I did wait a long time to go to the doctor and when I got there, my BP (which is never high) was 200/98.  They laid me down very quickly and started getting it down.  Pain and infection can send an otherwise normal blood pressure soaring.  Tonight my blood pressure is normal.  That was about 3-4 weeks ago.  I only have a small red area now but I am watching it  but still on a maintenance dose of antibiotics.  I pray your husband will do as well as I.

Angie:  Prayers for your hubby's quick recovery.

Prayers for all monkeys... I am sure we all have needs, no matter how small and God is concerned. For health, happiness and peace in our hearts.

I also pray for Beth, Dave and their families and that someday soon they will have the answers they deserve.  I pray for justice to come for Natalee and for those responsible to pay for what they have done.

And I also always pray for our troops serving in all capacities to keep our freedoms in tact, for their families and the sacrifices made, and for our leaders to make the best decisions possible.

Angie sorry to hear about hubby.  Glad he's in the hospital where they can get a good handle on that.  We went through that with my mom.  Had I.V. antibiotics and special dressing several times a day, and she did fine.  What an ordeal.  He's in my prayers.

Mrs I certainly will, I owe you an email and hope to send you one within the next day. New ventures at times force us to stretch in uncomfortable ways but then as long as you have the risks defined, often desire and persistence along with faith in ourselves and God helps us make that curve. I believe in you, you're in my prayers.

Msmarples was the embodiment of good friend by going with Sunfreak and I know it meant so much to SF too.

We are a lucky group, we have each other  :D

Post by: Tibrogargan on May 31, 2007, 08:14:53 PM
Marlee it is said that we are not sent more to deal with than we can manage but sometimes it seems that it is way over our capabilities.  Just remember that God can see into our hearts far better than we can ourselves and knows how strong we really can be.  Stay strong and know all your monkey family are with you in prayer and love.

Mrs Red you are an intelligent woman and have common sense as well, which are two great attributes.  I am sure you will do well with any venture you undertake.  Sometimes it is only timing than delays our plans.  If all runs smoothly and without any major disruptions you can be sure that the time is right now for you to advance.  I know you will have passed it over to God and will allow His plans for your life to take control.  Prayers and good wishes for all you wish to achieve.

SunFreak still keeping you in my prayers.

Angie hope hubby is improving - it can be a long process but we are all thinking of you and adding our prayers for both of you and your families.

Prayers also for all other monkeys especially those who have not posted a request.  We can all do with extra prayers and support .  God bless all the monkeys and their loved ones.

Tibro - I know that saying well, but there has to be a point where is has to stop. I have been through three years of hell -  That is not an exaggeration - continuing right through this week.  

I am sorry I am so negative.  I try to stay positive and strong but it is getting to be very, very hard.  (yes, I do see a therapist..lol)

Thank you all my monkey friends for the prayers, love and support.

Kimmy that is great news about Rhonda, I'm so glad !!

Marlee, I am no counselor or expert but have had a great life with few hard knocks for the first half, the second half has seemed to remedy that blessing lumping a lot of hard knocks. I will say I tried to say to myself and to my kids that good things do happen to good people, and to say it often enough out loud I had to believe it too - to remind me to believe it.

Try to vision where you want to go, then persevere. I will pray God helps you toward that and keep the faith.

But - You're still standing! "What doesn't kill us - makes us strong." You can get through this, whatever it is. I wish I could be of more help to you.

To all the Monkeys - I read here almost every day, but do not post much. My heart goes out to all who are facing problems and illness.

Also, I wanted to mention re. meeting with SunFreak at her doctor's ... she found a very cool gift for me. It's a monkey tea light holder. Looks a lot like the SM logo monkeys except both hands are busy holding the candle holder. (So I guess he's seeing, hearing, AND speaking evil!)
AND - she found some incense sticks called "Deepak"  :shock: .
These are things you would NEVER find if you were looking for them ...

Marlee... we all have those days where it feels like God is spitting on your head and calling it rain.... and eventually when you least expect it, the sun will shine again... I know .... I have been there... and I promise it does get better... just keep your faith... and I read a book by Beth Moore called when Godly People Do UnGodly Things that really helped me.... it isn't talking about that anyone does anything wrong... when circumstances are unbearable, so don't think it's like that... but it really helped me cope....

Prayers for all of you dear monkeys. It seems like everytime I check this thread there is more proof that God answers prayers and that miracles happen. I also read about so many who are still waiting for their prayers to be answered and for a miracle in their life. I have tried what nonesuche suggested re: saying things out loud (even when I didn't believe the things I was saying with my whole heart) and eventually it became commonplace to think and say those things (those things turned out to be prayers). And eventually those things started to come to fruition in my life. I know that He will always be there to hold my hand, and if need be, carry me, when I need Him to...Prayers and blessings for all of you who are in particular need right now.

While I'm here, I wanted to give you all an update on Clydean....I'm happy to report that she is doing much better. The doctors put in a trach and feeding tube last week, but she is now responding by blinking her eyes and squeezing your hand. She'll have surgery on both feet tomorrow, and the doctors also think that they may not have to do surgery on her heart, that it might heal itself. They're also hoping to take her halo off in next few days. It is truly a miracle. I’ve never seen anyone with injuries that severe before who lived to tell about it. I know she still has a long way to go, but the difference just in the last few days has been remarkable!

Thanks so much for your continued prayers.

Post by: crazybabyborg on June 04, 2007, 04:10:23 AM
Oh, Mrs. Red! ANYTHING by Beth Moore is Great! I love her books and studies! Marlee? I might also recommend "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren, if you haven't read it.

My prayers continue for all needs listed here. I'm so touched by this place, and feel really priviledged to have the opportunity to have prayer for you wonderful people! Folks of faith are family and as a family we are doing God's will by supporting each other in prayer. No matter what is going on with any of us, THERE IS NO MORE POWERFUL PLACE IN THIS WORLD THAN IN HIS WILL!

God Bless!

My family is need of prayers. My cousin (aged 47) committed suicide this last Saturday night.  Her sister & mother have told us that they really don't know what drove her to this result and there was no suicide note. She's been dealing with Crohn's disease and diabetes for sometime and they seem to think it was her medical condition that might of played a role, just not really sure as they're trying to come to grasp with this whole thing.
I'm just not sure what to think, as my cousin has always been a fighter & never backing down from challenges.
Her husband a few weeks ago bought a gun for her (he drives truck and thought she needed protection while he was on the road). My cousin told her daughter I don't need any guns in this house, I can protect myself I'm not afraid.  The gun she used Saturday was this same one that her husband brought home had loaded, cocked & ready to go, with the safety on. (shaking my head) He was in the kitchen when this took place, after they had been out drinking that night.  There's just to many questions and no answers.
I've been praying & trying to come to terms with my cousins death and trying to make sense of this all. She was 6 yrs. older than me.  I grew up with her & her sisters and they were like my big sisters.  
I'm sorry for typing so much and going on like this. If you can, please say a prayer for my family & I. Thank-You!!!      :cry:

Roos~

Oh Roos, you and your family are in my prayers. Such a tragedy. It does make you wonder sice you said they had been drinking if she was also drinking and the alcahol gave her either the courage or dispair to do this. Or even if the alcahol changed her whole mindset. Again my prayers go out to you.

Yes, Angie, it's so senseless and for the life of me I really can't comprehend it let alone my cousin right now. She never seemed to be one to give up. She's been thru' so much in her life, everytime she turned around she was tested everywhich way she went. My biggest hope & prayer is that she truly had turned to the Lord before she died, but I just don't know if she did. She was cremated yesterday.  :(

Post by: LouiseVargas on June 06, 2007, 11:38:02 PM
Roos, I pray for you and your family and what they are going through.

I firmly believe that people who contemplate suicide give out a lot of warning signals over a long period of time, altho people can do it on the spur of the moment. We are just too busy to pay attention. Then the suicide happens and people say they don't have a clue why it happened. Not leaving a note is symptomatic of someone who has thought long and hard about what is important to them and they realize nothing is important. They do not leave notes blaming other people.

Bottom line ... pay attention to your friends and family.

Another thing, Drinking itself does not cause suicide. I think the problems that lead to drinking are the ones that lead to suicide.

A prayer request for the daughter of a very good friend of mine.  The daughters name is Amanda.  She has been fighting cancer in multiple locations of her body since November.  She is a beautiful, vibrant woman in her early forties, that is handling this with great optimism and humor. She has had rectal cancer, spread to the liver and the lungs.  She has had multiple surgeries since early Jan.  She is having half of her left lung removed on June 14th in the hope that will eliminate the cancer there.  We are hopeful this will eliminate the cancer growths from her body  She will have additional chemo after that surgery.  Please pray for Amanda, and for her parents, husband and children,  to help all of them though this ordeal.  I thank you.  I pray for each of you needing help and peace.

I'm adding all the requests here to my prayer list. Hugs to everyone with needs.

This might sound like a kind of stupid request, but would y'all also pray that we get some rain here? We haven't had any rain in weeks and weeks. We are 23 inches behind in rain for the past several months. I'm really worried about the animals that live in our woods. I've been putting out as many containers of water as I can for them, but I know it's not enough. And the green things they eat are all drying up as well.  :(

Once again, I venture into the lounge and select prayer thread.  My heart is heavy and I know there are so many that need help.  Roos, suicide is very difficult  There are more questions than answers and enough guilt to go around.  The only person that knows the reason for all of this is God.  I know it's not easy to just let go and let God be in control.  I have learned to do this the hard way. I have had to learn to trust in something I can not see.  It's really hard sometimes, you find yourself asking why this happened and why it was this person and not someone else.  There are no easy answers, there will not be instant comfort to those that grieve.  That is why it's so hard to be human.  We care about things and children and animals.  It's a part of us that was placed there by the Creator knowing that our love and compassion was the only thing with the power to actually save humanity should the need arise. That is why it hurts our hearts.  We may only be flesh and blood but we have been given something that science can't find in all it's efforts.   That to me is amazing grace in action.  God doesn't turn his back on those that take their lives out of desperation.  He reaches out to them and comforts them and then leads them to see things in a different way.  Life on earth is both wonderful and sad at the same time.  Your loved one is resting in the arms of the Almighty right now.  I would not say this if I truly didn't believe it myself.  Love and hugs.

Roos I am so very sorry, how sad and tragic for all of you who loved her. I did know a coach once with Crohn's disease and it is such a hard disease to endure, basically your intestines atrophy and it can be very debilitating. After watching Rick endure his body's shut down so personally, it's often crossed my mind wondering how cronically ill people endure all they have to go through? I hope you and your family can find some peace eventually and I will pray for you and for her.

AZSunny, yes Amanda is in my prayers. So often now cancer is more about managing it than curing it, so if they can do that then perhaps soon we'll be closer to a cure in Amanda's lifetime. I will pray for that and for success with her treatment.

Sunfreak's news is wonderful, isn't it? A pure blessing from heaven.

Prayers for all of you in need. I prayer for all of you every day.  

  I appreciate your prayers for Amanda.  Her Mom and Dad are great friends of mine, and my heart breaks for them as well.  They need the prayers of support to help them support Amanda.

None, I agree that much of the cancer treatment is in managment, not cure.  I am not sure that with everything that has been going on that a cure is possible is possible for Amanda.  I do hope that she is granted another 5 to 10 years however.  She is so young, and her family is still growing and learning from her.  Thanks to all for your prayers of healing.

Thank-You Mrs. Red, LV, Lala's, None, Angie and anyone else that is holding my family up in prayer that I may not know about. Thank-You so very much from the bottom of my heart for your condolences, your words of comfort do bring some peace, your kindness & love shows in your words of thoughtfulness. I printed up your replies so I can have the words on hand at all times to draw strength from them when I feel overwhelmed. Thank-You so much, so very much for everything!  

AZSunny~
I have added Amanda to my prayers and am praying for a good outcome for her.  Also, praying for her family during this time for strength & peace.

I'm just so excited about your good news! God is Good all the time, All the time God is Good!!

Just in case there are those that missed this on the lively...

From Peaches:
I can't dance today. Too depressed. Shouldn't clutter the LCD with this but there's nothing going on anyway.

I have to have some surgery on Wednesday. It turns out as I was busy having ovarian cancer, something else was busy expanding on my right adrenal gland. Since I've had 3 CT scans, they've been watching it. Now whatever it is is more than 6 cm which means it has to come out.

Good news for me is we know it is not a pheochromocytoma. You medical types know what that means. And it's on the right and not the left (bigger structures in the way). But it has to come out.

Ovarian cancer doesn't usually spread to the adrenal glands. From my CT scan, it appears the ovarian cancer has gone packing. And that's great. But what is this thing on my adrenal gland?

I guess I'll find out on Wednesday. My surgeon's plan is to try to get this out laparoscopically. If that doesn't work, then they will convert to an open procedure. How exciting.

Alrighty then. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.



Feel the power or prayer, Peaches...it's coming your way.

Peaches I will be sending prayers and healing thoughts from my direction and will hope for the minor surgery only being required and a positive result. All your monkey family will be with you in love and prayer.

AZSunny I have been keeping Amanda and her family in my prayers although I have only just posted.  I do hope they gain strength and a positive outcome from the latest surgery.

For all monkeys and their loved ones who need extra strength and health I always ask for prayers for each and every one of you.  I know that our all-knowing Creator keeps each one of you in His care.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  Obviously I am up way too early.

I think TerryD is just antsy.  Sounds to me like he feels pretty good and he looks better.  That's crappy that his doctor's clerical staff dropped the ball but if the doctor wanted to see him THAT BAD, he'd be on the phone himself.   Doctors know how to use the phone.  I've seen 'em do it.  

On the other hand, I'm like Terry.  I get copies of all my labs, reports, whatever.  Comes in handy later when you have CRS aka chemo brain.  And I hate waiting for things.  Makes me anxious.

Our peeping squirrel is kickin' butt and takin' names so far.  I'm proud of him.  I'm trying to follow in his brave footsteps.

Who'd have thought I would find such wonderful people here?  I appreciate each and everyone of you.  I thank you for your prayers and concern.

A prayer request for the daughter of a very good friend of mine.  The daughters name is Amanda.  She has been fighting cancer in multiple locations of her body since November.  She is a beautiful, vibrant woman in her early forties, that is handling this with great optimism and humor. She has had rectal cancer, spread to the liver and the lungs.  She has had multiple surgeries since early Jan.  She is having half of her left lung removed on June 14th in the hope that will eliminate the cancer there.  We are hopeful this will eliminate the cancer growths from her body  She will have additional chemo after that surgery.  Please pray for Amanda, and for her parents, husband and children,  to help all of them though this ordeal.  I thank you.  I pray for each of you needing help and peace.


They prepped Amanda for surgery today, and biopsied the lung and found that the cancer has spread to both lungs. Unable to operate.  More chemo may be coming.  They need your help through prayers  please.

Hi monkeys.... a long time ago I had asked prayers for my cousin.  At the age of 34 she fell ill... couldn't walk, take a shower, read, watch t.v. etc... she said that it felt as if the entire room was swirling at all times... she went to several doctors and many of them told her in essence that it was all mental... but she is married with two great girls... she also was one of the kindest people on earth... so she continued being ill... and never getting better, her mom cared for her 24 hrs a day because she was unable to do anything for herself, about a year ago when I asked for prayers she had been told she and her husband had to move to a different state a long way from home and her daughters, one in college and the other is older too... at any rate it ended up being a blessing that she had to move... she found a doctor that actually knew about her disease - it is linked to autism - and she has begun the process of getting some of her life back...

this is a prayer answered and one I ask y'all to contine praying...

God bless!

let me add some clarity... the two daughters could not go to TX with her, she was completely alone when her husband was at work... and when she was 16 an accident happened to one of her eyes and they thought that it had killed the nerve connection to your hearing that has to do with balance...

so this journey has been such a blessing for her... and she for the first time in years sounds like she is actually happy to be alive... and I am soooooooo thankful...and grateful to y'all for keeping her in your prayers...


I have added Mishy's dad...

An update for those who might not see the lively update, Mishy's father did suffer a heart attack and is in intensive care. The cardiologists are still trying to stabilize him and if anyone wants more particular information then please call or email me.

Please help by praying for him, when we spoke Mishy stated that was why she posted at SM for she knows that this group will support them with our prayers. She said to tell everyone she loves us too. I reminded her we do as well.

I'll post updates when I have them.

Mrs that is a blessing for her to reclaim her life, god bless her.

I spoke with Mishy again and her father did have a 100% blockage in his left artery/ventrical but I am unsure of more specifics, but they did perform angioplasty and he is resting now. I think they plan to make further assessments now that he's stable but there are other blockages as well.

Mishy was so concerned about prayer, everyone please know how much our prayers mean to her, so please keep him and her family in our prayers.

June 26 at 10:15 AM.  The surgeon is taking 1/2" on each side and the bottom to take bigger margins.  I will also have the sentinnel node biopsy at this time.  I'm going under general anesthesia this time during my day surgery foray.  Please, if you remember, say a prayer for me that this monster hasn't spread.  The MRI of the brain and the PET scan of the bone and body showed clear.  Let's hope it stays that way.  Please also pray that I retain full use of my right dominate arm.  Thanks.  I'll keep you posted ASAP, propbably thru MsMarple.

I am having my second surgery on this Melanoma on Tuesday. June 26 at 10:15 AM.  The surgeon is taking 1/2" on each side and the bottom to take bigger margins.  I will also have the sentinnel node biopsy at this time.  I'm going under general anesthesia this time during my day surgery foray.  Please, if you remember, say a prayer for me that this monster hasn't spread.  The MRI of the brain and the PET scan of the bone and body showed clear.  Let's hope it stays that way.  Please also pray that I retain full use of my right dominate arm.  Thanks.  I'll keep you posted ASAP, propbably thru MsMarple.


I have been and will be praying for you Sun...

Mishy, continuing prayers for your dad.. grateful for encouraging news

Prayers for everyone...  I know this has been posted over and over..but its a favorite of mine.

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.


Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.


When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.


He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.


He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.


This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:


"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:


"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

this request comes from a dear friend with two younger brothers serving...

just as we pray for each other, let's not forget those serving ...

According to the weather reports, it is my understanding that it is 122 degrees in Iraq right now - and the low will be 111!  Our troops need our prayers for strength,  endurance, and safety. If it be God's will, give these men and women the strength they need to prevail.

I am sorry but I am not breaking this one.....Let us pray.

Prayer chain for our Military...please don't break it...please send this on after a short prayer.  Pray for our soldiers...

Prayer
"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.  Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need.  I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.  Amen."

Prayer Request: When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops around the world.

of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine & others deployed in harm's way, Prayer is the very best!!!!!

I have a prayer request for my step mother (SM).  She is 88 and apparently fell a few times, and caused a bleed in her brain.  SHe never told my Dad.  He noticed her acting funny, eating foods she hates, repeating the same thing within seconds of each other, dragging her foot.  He took her to her DR who didn't do anything.  It got worse.  Finally my Father took her to the ER where they found a big collection of blood in the brain.  She could have died from the pressure of the blood pushing down on the brain.  ANyway she had emergency surgery to drain the blood, over 50 staples in her scalp.  She has been in the hospital for 5 days now and will be going to an intermediate care facility before she can go home.  Luckily it's not too far from my Dad's house.  Poor lady.  Her name is Helen if you would please say a prayer for her to recover fully and make it home.  Thank you!

SunFreak - I will certainly add your step-mother to my prayer list. Although 88 sounds old to most people, these days people who are that age can be extremely active. She might have many productive years ahead, so I definitely hope she recovers quickly and completely.

I have come here many times with the intention of asking for prayer for something and realized that my problems are so small and limited as compared to others.  This is my humble place, where I am reminded by God that he hears all the prayers we pray everyday.  Not only does He hear them, he already knew we were going to ask. Have you ever been so fearful and anxious about something and prayed about it and then when it all came to pass, God had already taken care of it? These sincere prayers that we all pray each day for each other is one of the reasons I come here.  I see that spark of goodness that often is missing in our daily lives.  There are those that truly care.  


Prayers for all our monkeys.  May God's magnificent grace be with us all.

Hi, and welcome to the monkeys ~ couldn't sleep and just read your post.
What you might want to do is post your question/situation here, and then maybe start a thread in the lounge. Confused I usually hang out and lurk, but Klaas or San or some other pro will be along in the morning. Wink I think whatever you do will be okay. This is a great place.

The situation in a nutshell: My daughter left Jasper this morning at 3 am enroute to Tucson, Az. She called a friend to say that she had stopped in Tuscaloosa at a truckstop to get gas...that is the last time anyone has talked to her. Her friend in Tucson received a call around 8:00 (AZ time) from an anonymous person saying that my daughter had been robbed and that this person had taken her to a truck stop...no mention of her car. I called the number of the anonymous caller but did not get an answer...left message.

The story becomes even more bizarre, I know that she cashed out the debit card she was given and a guy who said his name was Hosea said that she was in the motel and for us not to worry. hen asked to speak to her, he hung up ..he was calling from her phone....

I called her phone and told her that IF I did not get to talk to her in person
pretty soon that I was going to have her dad contact the police (he gave her a car for her b'day) and have the car stopped. After a short wait, the police were called and a report was made. At midnight I received a call from her cell phone...a guy who did not want to talk...he just said.."did you talk to her?"....I asked how he got her phone and he said that she must have lost it at the motel but that she was gone now. He wouldn't say anything else.

Within 30 minutes...her friend received a call from a Arizona area code saying that my daughter was in Arizona...no way she could have driven
that distance in the time frame we have . The police claim they cannot
track the cell phone . I am at my wit's end trying to make sense out of this.

When she was younger, she had a serious drug problem so the police feel that she is just doing drugs and let the time get away from her. She has been drug free for six years and when before she left she was telling me how excited she was that her life was moving in a positive direction and that she was planning to return to college this fall.

She has always stayed in phone contact with me...I just feel that there is something else at play here. I needed someone to talk to who might offer insight as to other avenues we may have overlooked. Tomorrow, I amgong to get her dad (we are divorced) to contact the cell phone company to see if they can determine the location of the phone when it was being used.

Also another friend who works in youth services suggested finding out where she cashed in the debit card. At least we would know where to start

______
A few Monkeys were still online and able to give her ideas and encouragement. What is needed now is prayer for the health, safety, positive conclusion for Lady Devon's daughter, for Lady Devon, for the father, the family and friends. And for that someone out there that could right now make a difference in helping her.

And if necessary that God give us the path and the fasted to do what they, all of can do in this situation so that Lady Devon and her daughter will see each other's happy faces.

In the early part of this century I met a women named Judith. She had breast cancer six years earlier. She refused to have her breast amputated and had a lumpectomy instead and many chemo treatments. Then the breast cancer cells metastasized six years later to the ovaries and uterus, which they removed. She underwent many rounds of chemo until she was cancer free again. It didn't last long and it metastasized into colon cancer, She had a colostomy and had to wear a bag. The cancer metastasized to her anus. But she never gave up or complained.

Judith always asked me how I was doing. She even was a "go-between" between me and my daughter at the time of the estrangement. I told her, "Judith, I'm totally not comfortable telling you my problems when I see you going through cancer hell."

And this is the life lesson she left me before she died. She said, "My cancer problems have nothing to do with your problems. It does not invalidate them. Your problems are of equal importance. Never think they are of lesser importance."

Please let us understand that ALL our problems listed in this thread are of equal value and attention. So please feel free to always post your needs.

LV,

Your friend Judith was a very wise woman. Someone with a rare muscular disease once told me that her disease was an assignment she was given by God, and the road of her illness had been a wondrous journey. She said that instead of asking a sick friend, "how are you?" or telling them they look great, to ask them, instead, what they have learned.

She also said that, although we have socially acceptable values of what makes life hard (like illness), she is convinced that nobody's life is harder than anyone else's and that nobody's problems are greater...

Thank you for sharing Judith's words of wisdom and for helping me recall what Sandy told me...I will always remember her words...

I need special monkey prayers for the family of a little boy that drowned at a local pool yesterday.  His name was Steve and he was 6 years old.  I met Steve at the elementary school where my children attend as part of the afterschool program.  He was the kindest and sweetest little boy ever.  He always had a smile and a hug for me whenever I saw him.  We have lost a truly precious soul on this earth.  May Steve's family find peace in this tragedy.

Prayers for Everyone and our Troops too and their families and all those wh lead

I'd like more energy and gumption to get through a day of survival with out tiredness (Chronic Fatigue) before starting and muscle pain, anxiety, panic attacks (at times) and depression from the Fribromyalgia.

In other works, a fire lit under me so I can get survival things done and feel like I am living, not just alive. Thanks, Love, IBE    (Sharon)

Oh GEL I am so sorry to learn of  your brothers accident. My prayers are with your whole family and particularly your brother. Do you think you can tell me his first name? I pray for his speedy recovery that he may rejoin his loving family.

I can tell you that many people live normal lives after the removal of a spleen. There are certain precautions they may need to take with regards to infections throughout their lives ie possibly taking a flu shot or the like.
 
Sleenectomy second to blunt force trauma is usually accompanied by significant blood loss and possible need for transfusion(s). The spleen is a very vascular organ, and when ruptured it almost always needs to be removed. The spleen is a part of the body's lymphatic system which is involved in fighting infections. It also stores red blood cells and platelets.

My prayers are with you all.........

Oh my dear GEL, I know you are beside yourself with worry.  Well, stop worrying about your brother and sister being lifted up in prayer at this moment.  As of right now there are many friends doing that very thing for them.   May God hold them in His hands until they recover from this accident.  These things take time to get where you can even tell what's what, so don't despair.  Just go and talk to God, he is listening.  He's always listened to me and he's there for you.   God bless your family and hugs and prayers from me.  Keep us posted.  We love you.

I have been debating posting this... but I am going to ask for support/prayers for a friend's daughter...

she was brutally raped, and beaten in Atlanta... and the rape was so tramuatizing that she has had what they are terming a "psychotic break"... daughter can't tell us what happened or anything... and she refused a rape kit because she was afraid of the exam... I think it's possible that she knew the attacker and is afraid of him...

regardless, she needs our prayers...

thanks.

it was hard for me to post this, but I also want to say that I know y'all of everyone will understand...

Prayer request I just recieved via email from Bama Lady (I'm pretty sure she is not a member of SM):

Bama Lady wrote:

Friday afternoon late: My daughter was tracked down on her cell phone by the
hospital doctors and told by them that the MRI they ran trying to see why
she was still having medical problems, headaches, dizziness, etc. was
positive . . .

showing she has M.S. (multiple sclerosis).
There is no cure.
She is 28 as of two weeks ago with three small chidren under 7.


Then:

Early Sat morning while I was still asleep - my mother while making her
breakfast dropped dead.
I heard the strange noise like a bowling ball dropping off a table and
almost turned over to go back to sleep but decided to go see what the noise
was and found her.
She was lying flat on the floor just like someone standing in the military
at attention - a very odd position, arms at her side stiff.
(that facial look: eyes wide open not blinking at - all not seeing at all, -
mouth wide open not breathing at all - I can not get it out of my mind awake
or asleep).

I did CPR, got her breathing after about 3 - 4 minutes, turned her on her
side still while she was unconscious, ran for my cell phone calling 911 on
it and ran for the land line calling my kids to get over to my house fast
waking them up too while talking with 911 at the same time.

By the time they were at the house she was waking up, confused and dizzy.
She was taken by ambulance to our nearest hospital - the county one that has
the good cardiac section. The ER doc sent her to have a CT of her head, and
before she was back from xray the ER doc was in the room telling me it was
an emergency - she had to be transferred immediately to Bham to a
neuro-surgeon for an active brain bleed.

I did not know until then that doctors can refuse patients being
transferred. Two hospitals refused to accept her because apparently of her
age, not wanting the responsibility. The county hospital had no neurologist
or neuro anything so she had to be transferred. We finally got one to accept
her, transferred her by ambulance to Bham and she is in intensive care.

She is now stable, has 24-7 nurse in the room, can not get up at all, and
except for short term memory is normal again.

She was more active and able to get around better than I was before this.
Her parents died at 88 each, and her sisters lived to be 98 to 106. She
always said she was so healthy from growing up in the Tennessee mountains
walking to school 2 miles through all the weather, the mountain living, air,
and mountin spring water.

Problem now is - they say it is the chicken or the egg - which came first?
Did the brain bleed cause her to drop dead?
Did the fall when it happen cause her to stop her heart or breathing?
OR
Did her heart stop beating first?
OR did she throw a blood clot which stopped her breathing first?
Either of them could have caused the fall which hitting her head caused the
brain bleed?

They are checking out her lungs, brain and heart to try to see which thing
happened first so to know how to treat her. They are worried it might happen
again when she is upright or walking.
She does not remember what happened so she cant help know which came first.

Also meanwhile we are having to cope with the brain bleeding, hoping it
stops on its own,
or we face brain surgery to stop it or let her die if the bleed does not
stop on its own.


Please pray for my whole family.

Thank you.

Katysmom, saying a prayer for you regarding your Dr visit tomorrow. I know you're pretty anxious about it. I hope they can get to the root of the problem and that it's nothing serious. Try to remain as calm as you can and imagine us all there with you holding your hand.

Bamalady, I believe we spoke on the phone last October. I am so sorry to hear that your daughter has been diagnosed with MS. I don't know much about MS, but I do know several people who have it. Please let her know there are many who are praying for her. And I know you must be haunted by that image of your mother lying there on the floor like that. Thank goodness you got out of bed when you did and were able to perform CPR. I pray that your mother is able to recover from this. I am praying for your entire family. HUGS!!!

Mrs Red.  Keeping your friend's daughter in my prayers.  What a traumatic experience for her.  She will need so much support from her family and friends even without admitting to herself she needs them.  There are no answers for why these things happen - all we can do is ask for help for her.

Katysmom All your monkey friends will be with you in thought and prayer, asking for calm to surround you and a positive outcome from the tests. 

Bama Lady Adding you and your family to my prayer lists.  That is such a terrible experience for both you and your mother and I hope you can get some peace of mind within your thoughts.  Remember, you did save her life and now she has the opportunity to be diagnosed and treated appropriately.  Please keep us posted as to her progress.
Hugs also for your daughter.  I have friends with MS and the prognosis can vary so much person to person.  There are monkeys who are more experienced with MS than I am and I am sure you and your daughter could get great support from them if needed.

Could I please add myself to those in need of prayer? I'm having a really difficult time around work and there are a multitude of serious pitfalls all around me. If I navigate the road I must walk without a stumble, it will only be with God's guidance and protection. I'm scared, but have faith and I'm holding on to His hand tightly.

Either of them could have caused the fall which hitting her head caused the
brain bleed?

They are checking out her lungs, brain and heart to try to see which thing
happened first so to know how to treat her. They are worried it might happen
again when she is upright or walking.
She does not remember what happened so she cant help know which came first.

Also meanwhile we are having to cope with the brain bleeding, hoping it
stops on its own,
or we face brain surgery to stop it or let her die if the bleed does not
stop on its own.


Please pray for my whole family.

Thank you.


Bama Lady:  My heart goes out to you.  Stay strong for both your daughter and your mother.  Thank God your mother was in your house when it happened.  If you need anything, just let us know.  Prayers to your whole family.

I would like to ask you to please pray for me on Monday morning.  I will be going in for a heart test so they can figure out what has been causing my chest pains.  I have to be there at 9:00 am and they told me it should take 4 hours. 
Thank you
Peg

You will be in my prayers Katysmom.

Thank you, it means a lot to me

Mrs. red  your friends daughter is in my prayers.  I pray that she can recover from this.

Katysmom I'm praying that things go well tomm.  Please keep us informed.

Bama Lady your family is in my prayers.

God Bless you, and God Bless all my monkey friends. 

I had the procedure done and I really don't want to go through that again.  I am deathly afraid of needles, so my dr. had me take a valium ahead of time.  It helped.  They brought me right to the point of having a heart attach and I thought it was strange because the pain was not even close to the pains I've been having at home.  What has me worried is that the nurse that questioned me ahead of time told me that my dr would get a report within 1-2 weeks.  When it was all over, the cardiologist told me that he would have the report to my dr. by 5 pm that afternoon.  :shock:  Now I don't know what to think.

katysmom-

Stay the course with it, so much can be done in this day and age with new diagnostics and treatments that can even head off something more serious down the road. I know the tests are frightening, we'll keep you in our prayers that this isn't something serious. I also found with Rick's illness that testing physicians and nurses really do not like to do bedside diagnostics on testing. So keep that in mind also, it could also be something less than minor.

keep the faith...

Katysmom, I'm praying for your good health and God's peace.

Jerry, I join with you in your faith that Jessica will be just fine. Both of you are in my prayers for health and blessings!

Louise, I've prayed that God will hold you close tonight.

Mrs. Red, I continue to join the others in keeping your friend's daughter lifted up in prayer.

Bama Lady, I'm also continuing to pray that God will lift the harm to your family and restore health and comfort to you all.

I'm in awe everytime I come here. I truly love this special place. Here there is trust, here there is love, here there is kindness and caring. Here, God is invited and He knows the vulnerableness that brings us together, and sees His children reaching out to help each other. The most powerful place anyone can be is within His will, and by being here in Love, we are standing in that place. God Bless.

The most powerful place anyone can be is within His will, and by being here in Love, we are standing in that place. God Bless.

cbb I know exactly what you mean.  It is like our own monkey chapel in this thread and you can feel the love and caring whenever you are here.  We all clown about at times in the other threads but when we read here it is so peaceful and uplifting and it feels that we are joined by more heavenly company than we may realise.  What greater gift can we give others than our caring and healing thoughts?

Hmmmm, a prayer jar.  A jar full of little pieces of paper.  On a little piece of paper, you write your concern.  Give the concern to God and place the paper in the jar.  Now you've given the prayer and the problem to God so that is one less thing you have to worry about that day.  Feel free to include some things you are grateful for as well and thank God for those.  Now go have a nice day and don't worry.  Your problems are safe in His hands.

I think it's an interesting alternative to a list.  You could empty the jar as necessary and thank God for the prayers answered as well voice additional concerns for those prayers as yet unanswered. 

I think I read about a lady who did this in an article in Guideposts maybe.  Or somewhere.  I don't know.  I plead chemo brain on the source.  So I recall the basic concept but what I wrote is my interpretation of the idea.

Well Monkeys  this has got me puzzled  :smt102  but I am just Happy that you were all with Jessica and my self  through this and I STILL  believe and am thankful to ALL of you that joined in prayer for Jessica's  safe ultrasound on the lump in her breast .
  They called her this AM from the Dr's office and told her that they found NOTHING
unusual about the breast .   Now we just don't know what to think ,  she felt the lump  her mother felt it there,  I felt it  ( Don't ask <g> ) and the Dr felt it .
  Now they do an ultra sound and nothing ?  the Ultra sound Tech even took the disk to the radiologist even before we left the room  just to make sure that it was OK  and that she had taken it correctly .
   Her breast is still very tender and pain is still going Through it but they swear that what ever was there is  not   there now .
  So we will wait for the follow up appt the 21 st of Aug and see where we are there then .
   Thank you all again and May the Great Spirit  bless you ALL as well as your loved ones for   which we both will continue to pray for .
    your  thank full friends  Jerry and Jessica  from Ohio    :smt052
  Major  Hugs  to ALL of you SM  that helped us ((((((((((((  All SM ))))))))))))

I had several lumps in my 20's... doctor told me that when women shave and then put on deodorant it can cause lumps... told me to always shave my underarms at night ... and then reshower in the a.m.

As is often the case.  I was praying last night for the monkeys and all their concerns.  As I lay there in bed quietly, I almost heard God say, "I will not forget them, I promise."  Indeed he did not forget.  Sometimes I just say please bless all the monkeys and take away their sorrows and replace it with joy.  Then on other occasions I list you all by name.   God doesn't care if I call you by your nicknames, he already knows who I am talking about before I start.  He already has the answer to your requests, it's just hard to wait on the answers when it all seems so urgent.  Anyway, I am rambling, but wanted everyone to know that I never forget you guys in my prayers.  I even thank God that he brought such wonderful people into my life.

I am thinking of going back to Church formally in September.
There is church now, but they all go to the lake on weekends.
For a family unity thing. My daughter converted to Greek Orthodox.
Priest has been asking her about me. Says, bring her here ! :shock: :shock:

It would be ok, it is very similar to the religion of my grandparents.

Oh, Lala's. I hesitate a little to keep asking for prayer here. I'm just more comfortable praying for others. But.......today, that's what I came to do because I'm in real need. Your post has reduced me to tears of gratitude, and humbleness. It's exactly what my heart needed and whether you realized it or not, God knew I'd be here to find it, and you were being led to place those words here for me and for others. Thank you for being an empty vessel so that He can fill you with His guidance.

I really struggle with expressing how this place effects me sometimes. I don't understand why exactly, but I'm sort of embarrassed/ashamed......I don't know the right word, but it's hard for me to say that I have no family. I miss them so much, and I feel so vulnerable without Dad's guidance, Mom's strength, my brother's sense of humor, Gran's kindness. They are my "roots" and I had my spot beside them in their garden. My Son is an incredible blessing to me, but I'm appropriately his earthly foundation......that's how it should be and I wouldn't have it any other way.

But, when I'm scared, and I am, and when I really need help, and I do, this is the only place that has a familiar soil. I know that God is teaching me to deepen my faith and learn to lean and rely on Him alone. You guys stand with me, and I take each need here in my own heart to give to Him. That's what families do.

Ahhh.......I can't even see the screen! Sorry for the meltdown.

Well, I can at least edit this post if I choose!!!  :lol:

Laughter through tears! See, it's exactly what I needed! God Bless You All!!!

Well, at least they know WHO DID IT.  Should make it easier to put his happy ass in jail where it belongs for a long time.  Somehow I knew it was the boyfriend... and in this case, he was neither boy nor friend.  Just another bully on the loose.  I hate them all.

Prayers of course continue for this dear girl.  I hope she is able to salvage her life and her sanity.  She deserves so much better.  We all do.  Some women just don't believe they deserve better so they put up with way more than they ever should.  I think they forget they are a child of God and are loved for just that reason and no other.  I hope she knows there are people who care about her and are praying for the best possible outcome for her.

I had a mammo last friday,have a older sister who passed away from breast cancer.The doc's office said I will get the results by mail within the week.I was having no problems,just a regular mammo but it scares me.
You will all be in my prayers like I hope I am in yours.


Karma - if they thought you were having problems, they would probably call instead of sending you results by mail. If they do call, though, it doesn't necessarily mean anything. They called me once and said something looked abnormal on the mammogram, and they wanted me to go have an ultrasound. I had to wait two weeks to have that done, and I was nervous as heck. Then, after the ultrasound was completed, they told me they didn't see anything. Said it was probably a smudge or shadow or something. Pfffttt!!!!

Try not to worry. I'll bet everything will be perfect.

Thank you TcuMom,BT,Mishy and Mrs Red
The mammo office called last night,wanted me to call them but it was too late by the time I got their message.I called this morning and they want another mammo done on the left side only.I asked if they found anything but of course the nurse wouldn't tell me so I go back in at 8:30 am tomorrow to redo the left side.They said the doc needed a better view.Then another whole week of waiting I guess.Trying not to let my imagination run wild,trying to stay strong and I am hoping and praying all is well.If it's not well,I pray for the strength and courage I know I'm going to need.
You all give me strength,thank you.

This thread is so uplifting, I read it first whenever I sign on...then I say an extra prayer for all those who need them. 

Today I will ask you to remember my family in your prayers.  Last Wed, we received a call that my father was not doing well.  In the past 7 days, he has become totally unresponsive, breathing is shallow and he can no longer swallow. Today, hospice has told us that his blood oxygen is about 60% and he has no more than a couple of days.  We will be sad to lose him, but he has suffered so much from the Parkinson's the past two years, we cannot be sad to see him finally released from all that. My mother has Alzheimer's, and has been totally non-communicative for over four years.  The day my dad started going downhill, she began to get extremely agitated, wringing her hands and bedcovers.  She appears to have no interaction at all with her environment, so we must assume that they have some kind of "communication" that we are not privy to.  They just celebrated their 56th anniversary in April.

We will appreciate your prayers for us during this time.

Lexie - adding you and your family to my prayers.
It is sad to have loved ones leave us but I am sure they go to a realm of love and peace and leave behind their earthly cares and afflictions.
I also believe that those who are unresponsive to their immediate surroundings are aware and can communicate in ways we would find impossible to believe.  Love is the glue that holds us all together wherever we may be.
Hugs for you

Lexie

You and your whole family will be in my prayers. When your parents leave here, they will be going to a realm of immense love.

As Wayne Dyer says, "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." The end of the human experience is only a return to the wonderful spiritual experience.

Hugs.

I went for 2nd mammo and an ultra sound.They found 3 cysts,one is 1cm,the other 2 are real small.I spoke to the radiologist,His recommendations:
Wait 3 months then come in for another mammo/US for comparison.
OR
Have a needle biopsy.
I see my regular doc 8/24 so will discuss with her but I'm going for the needle biopsy.The radiologist says he is almost positive they are fluid filled cysts and harmless but we want to make sure.
I want to thank you all for keeping me in your prayers.You are all in mine.

lexie- I have you and your family in my prayers.  It is indeed hard to see someone suffering so from a disease and knowing they only have a short time with us.  I have been in somewhat a similar place, and can tell you that with others support and love it will in time get better.

It is hard to turn them loose, but know that in their passing they become whole again and all their pain and suffering will be no more.

Prayers for you, your mom and dad and family...Strength and Comfort.(((hugs)))

Thank you to all for the prayers and kind words.  My father passed away about 11 a.m. today.  We are all doing fairly well, although three siblings and many other relatives will be traveling long distances to get here.  Services are Monday.  We will celebrate his life, and the Atonement of Christ, that gives us comfort in sadness, and hope that in the resurrection, we will all be together as a family once more.  Thank you for your continued prayers on our behalf.

To Tib & BT:  Just wanted to tell you you are right about the communication.  I have mentioned before her lack of interaction with anyone around her.  She has spoken only one or two intelligible words in the last 3 years. She speaks seldom, and when she does it is gibberish.  My father died at 11:10.  At 11:30, the staff came into the room to feed my mother.  She was noticeably sad, and agitated.  Her only words were, "Come back! Come back!" as clear as they could be.  She knows.  We do not know how, but she knows.

CBB - Even though my mother has been gone from my sight for 10 years and I have other immediate family - Dad, brothers, sister - I remember feeling like an orphan.  Sometimes, I still do.  I talk to my Dad a couple times a week but it's not the same conversation I would have if I were talking to my Mom.  Nothing is the same.

Thank you, everyone who has posted here and those who have emailed. I arrived back home last night, lexie I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. These are milestones in life we all share yet it never ceases to be so painful to hear of others enduring losing those they love.

My nephew was the first grandchild in our family, he had just driven home his new girlfriend and was returning home, hence the late hour. They were young and caught up in their feelings that night, he was driving and text messaging her - he also text messaged his father he was going on a trip with she and her parents that weekend? He lost control of the car and crashed into a concrete culvert and died nearly instantly from internal injuries. Yesterday was unbearably sad, even my stoic brother could not stop gasping with tears. Words escape all of us to console one another, hopefully as time goes on we will find the words for the love is there.

Life is so precious, so many things are so unimportant, Rick taught me that and at least I knew I was losing him in advance. I am trying to take comfort as is my family, that my father and Rick are there to greet him and to comfort him as my nephew passes into God's hands.

Please pray for his parents, my mother, and his three siblings. At this moment their pain is inconsolable. God bless each of you and I am thankful for your support and love and prayers, more than you may know.

None - I am heart broken to hear of your nephews tragic death.  I will keep you and the family in my prayers for strenghth in the upcoming days.  The death of someone so young with such promise is doubly hard.

I had the procedure done and I really don't want to go through that again.  I am deathly afraid of needles, so my dr. had me take a valium ahead of time.  It helped.  They brought me right to the point of having a heart attach and I thought it was strange because the pain was not even close to the pains I've been having at home.  What has me worried is that the nurse that questioned me ahead of time told me that my dr would get a report within 1-2 weeks.  When it was all over, the cardiologist told me that he would have the report to my dr. by 5 pm that afternoon.  :shock:  Now I don't know what to think.

Has anyone heard from Katysmom?  It seems she has not posted at all during the past month :(  This post (quoted) is from the last day she posted.  I've been watching---hoping and praying she's doing well. 

I continue to pray for all who have experienced illness and loss lately...including Peaches, SF, Lexie, None, Angie.  I hold your "Monkey" face (avatar) in my mind as I pray because I don't know what you really look like, but I know God knows...

   Darn CBB you just made me cry at 7:25 AM  here  .
  Not a cry for bad now mind you  but you just put that post in such a beautiful way and it got me right in my heart   :)
  I also pray and send up smoke for All those in need , it sure has helped me when I am down and feel that all or most is lost or out of control  and then God sends his best Angels to aid me in either understanding or to help me through .
   I find that the older I get the more that my emotions  are a lot closer to the surface .
   My Lady Jessica says that is just Gods way of Keeping me Humble and SHE  loves it that I am that way and not so much of a Macho Man that a lot of men are like .  She is such a Gentle woman and she doesn't care for the Macho thing .  So when I gave my heart to her  I asked  God to take that old part of me away  and  darn if he didn't .
   Our Lord is so great  !!!   :wink:

This comes semi close ...I know there are a lot of similar artists / music like this ...

I am remembering all your requests in my prayers.  I am here to tell you that that power of collective prayers is felt, and does help.  I hope to add my voice of comfort to those of others here.  I am especially mindful of those like Jennifer, and Peaches, and None. It is so hard to lose a loved one or see one suffer.  It is so much more devastating when it is someone so young and full of promise.

I am doing especially well since we lost my father.  I know that much of that is due to the prayers of others, but also to the special "spiritual" blessings we received during those days we planned and went through the services.  I am not ready to talk about those experiences yet, but I will say this.... There is more after this life.  There is a loving God who knows each of us by name.  He knows the pain and suffering we feel, and the desires of our hearts.  He hears us when we pray, for ourselves, and for others.  And, he answers.  There is a plan, and we have only to ask, and we will be given the guidance and comfort we seek.

Thank you, monkey friends, for all you do for others.  We may not always see it, those who benefit may not always say it, but we do make a difference when we seek to help others.  God bless each of you ...

I want to say a prayer to one of my favorite people on the internet..She backed me up when I needed her help when I was attacked by people trying to take away what little truth we know..Everyone else stood by and watched and she helped me fight that battle..She thinks like I do and I consider her my Natalee Partner and my Big Sister. She is truly one of Natalee's Guardian Angels and I am proud to be your Friend. I know you have a battle ahead of you and you are in my thoughts and Prayers. You are a very special person and I think of you often!!

Thank you San for your prayers. The family has made the necessary arrangements, but there is an ongoing investigation into the accident and one person walked away from the accident and their only son is no longer of this earth.  There are discrepancies into who was driving and etc.  A lot of questions unanswered, and all of that is adding to their heartache.  It is my hope there will be a thorough investigation and the family will have some closure.   After speaking with them yesterday and today, I can hear in their voice and feel in their words how they've gone from being so calm to sad and now fear and anger is creeping in as it becomes more real he won't be coming back.

Muffy ~ I am so sorry for your friends.  My heart truly hearts for them.  As a parent of an only child, I try not to imagine how I would continue living if something should happen to him.

Hopefully, the investigation will help them through the days of denial, anger, fear, and I guess, finally acceptance and continuing faith in their God.

I will be thinking of all of you and saying prayers.  Hugs to you.

I haven't been able to keep up for about a week or two as life has taken its own road these days without my input  :)  All of you are in my thoughts & prayers all of the time. Each & everyone of you hold a special place in my heart. I love you all and hope each & everyday your lives are blessed abundantly with the Lord's Love & Grace. :)

I have a couple of prayer requests to ask for your prayers during these times.

The first request I have is for a family friend named Ed - He will be undergoing possible cancer surgery at 9am (pst) tomorrow morning (Friday). Please pray for the Lord to undertake the whole situation concerning everything that is involved in this. He needs peace, strength & guidance with some decisions he faces after the surgery and also prayer for guidance &  direction for the Drs. hands to remove everything there is so it won't return and it won't be cancerous.
The Drs. have told him that he will have to wear a colostomy bag and are unsure until after the surgery if it will only be temporarily or permanent. He's having a hard time dealing with the possibility of it being permament. He is a Christian.

The other request is for my husband and his employment right now. The Lord has moved him into a managerial position and his 2 bosses would rather see him fail than to succeed. The whole thing is complicated, but we know the Lord is in control and we continue to pray for the Lord to undertake the whole thing and work his Glory thru' it all. If you can please hold us up in prayer, for the Lord's guidance & direction for this employment situation it would be deeply appreciated.
Thank-You so very much!!

Roos~

Dear Anna,

You wrote "Please also pray that my dogs will be OK in my absence.  I have someone to feed them but they won't play and stay with them all night.  I am very anxious about this." Anna, I'm sure your dogs will be fine, maybe lonely for you, but fine. I have a pet sitter who comes every day. She feeds and waters the cats, cleans the litter box, plays with them and brushes them. Prolly she stays a half hour. She loves my cats but she is not free - it costs $21 per day.

You could look up pet sitters on the Internet for the future.

Muffy, my heart aches for your friends who lost their only son in a mysterious car accident. I hope they get the answers they seek and that, with time, their hearts will be mended in some way.

Roos, I am praying for your friend and for your hubby. You are so right in that it's all in His hands and only He knows how things will turn out. I pray that you and hubby and friend will be able to accept His will for you all and that He will continue to take care of you all.

Hugs and prayers for everyone! I miss you guys!!!!!!!!!!

Mishy, his family really needs prayers now.  His mother isn't doing very well at all.  Yesterday the young man's father and friends were moving fencing farther back into the property to move cattle farther back because the mother could look out the window and see the boy's bull and cows he had raised.  When he was in high school, he had won awards in Future Farmers of America raising cattle.  He was a student advisor for FFA. We went to the cemetery and installed a bench near the grave.  Very soon, it will be difficult to find things to do except just being there for them.  No report from the police department yet.

We have folks drop off jars at our store all of the time.. Its SO SAD to see a baby on them.. even an adult for that matter.   God Bless little Nathan.

Louise,
Thank you for trying to think of a solution for me.  There aren't any pet sitters close enough to do this.  The nearest ones would be about fifty miles away and they would be very expensive with travel time and expenses.  It's just hard to find somebody who will care for this many as it involves a lot of work.  Just washing all the dishes is quite a job.

TO TRUTHSEEKER:  My cousin had twin sons born at 22 weeks.  They weighed less than 2 1/2 lbs each at birth, and had the usual respiratory problems.  Modern medicine is wonderful...  These two boys are now 22 years old, gifted in academics, musically inclined, and just returned from a 2 year mission for their church in Taiwan... learning a difficult new language in three short months.  They stayed in the hospital about 3 months, just short of their original due date. 

They can now do wonderful things with neonatal care... Your daughter and the twins are in my prayers.

Lexie,

Thanks so much for the encouragement.  It's good to hear about these successful births.  I am printing this and the one Janet shared to take with me to the hospital tonight.  I had to work today so I can be off more once the babies get here.

My daughter and son-in-law were scheduled to go overseas for a 3 year mission assignment, but when she found out she was pregnent with twins they put those plans on hold.  They already have an 18 month old and are hoping to be able to resume the mission assignment after the first of the year.  I just don't know if those little guys will be ready by then.  (a selfish part of me hopes they have to stay in the states)  But we have to get them here and hope we have a success story like your cousin did.

Thanks again and please keep my daughter and her babies in your prayers!

I know it has been awhile since many of you have heard from me,I have been around, just not posting alot. I do know the power of monkey prayer and last night when I received some heartbreaking news about my 23 yr. old nephew I immediately thought of the monkey prayers that were needed.

My 23 yr. old nephew is in the Air Force , he is a firefighter and is stationed in South Carolina. He has been sick with pneumonia for the past 3-4 weeks.Or at least what they kept saying was pneumonia.His parents in Illinois  received a call Sunday that Jake was in the hospital and in congestive heart failure and they immediately flew to South Carolina.Yesterday Jake was transferred to the University of South Carolina Hospital in Charleston to the cardiac unit. It has been determined that he has been battling a virus which has severely damaged his heart. Last night he was rushed into open heart surgery where they put a pump on each side of his heart to try to let his heart recover.The plan is to try to let the pumps work for his heart for several weeks to see if it can recover. His heart was working at 15% capacity.
They are tell the family that 33% recover fully, 33% recover with some limitations and 33% need to go on a heart transplant list. Jake has his youth and his strength on  his side, but he also needs alto of monkey prayers. Please pray for him and  his family.I know the power of monkey prayer and this young man needs it desperately.

I just typed a long involved post which got lost in preview.  There are so many people here with serious problems, I hope nobody is offended by a "cat request." 

Without going into the whole long story, I brought a cat, Garth, a very sweet 5 yr old brown tabby, into my home because his owners were letting him go outside (against their adoption agreement terms).  I was their pet sitter and became very attached to him.  Since they adopted him and another cat, they now have 2 small kids with another on the way, and have no time for pets.  Plus the kids are scaring the cats.

I took him in, had him tested for feline leukemia (FELV) and feline aids and he was negative.  I put him in a 2x3' cage in my front bedroom with two of my cats and started letting him out a little at a time.  He didn't eat for a week because of the trauma of changing homes.  He is a very sweet lap kitty.  A month later we did a follow-up test and he tested "weak positive" for FELV.  This is disastrous for a cat owner!  A more sensitive IFA test was done and he was positive.  I have several cats and no place in my house where I can isolate Garth.  Not to mention that my two cats have possibly been exposed.  They tested negative and have to be retested in 6 wks. 

Garth is living in a 2x3' cage elevated on a table.  I can't even let him out for any exercise.  I sterilize my hands after handling him or cleaning his box to avoid spreading virus.  Garth has no idea why I am keeping him confined this way and not giving him lap time.  I guess he thinks I'm nuts.  But he wants out of the cage.

We have been so stressed for weeks because we love this sweet kitty and are worried about the other cats, but we don't know what to do.  Rescue groups will not take him because he would be hard if not impossible to adopt out.  We desperately need to find a cat lover with no other cats willing to give him a home.  He can live many years with good care and a loving home. 

Your prayers for Garth, Charlie, Bobby would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
tidycat

This is a "ps" to my last post.  Garth was attacked as a kitten by a dog (before being adopted) and had surgery to remove part of his lower jaw.  He is fine, and only has a bit of an overbite which makes his face even more adorable.  His owners live on a very busy street.  They failed to keep the cats' vaccinations up to date, resulting in his becoming infected with FELV.  The other cat tested negative, but that could change when (if) he is tested again in a few weeks.  His name is Kitty, and he could use some prayers too, that he remains negative on his test and that they keep him indoors and safe.  Thanks.

I offer my prayers for all of God's creatures, great and small.  That means two-legged, four legged, winged and etc.  I will pray Garth will have a good home.  I don't post often in this thread, but I read here and light candles and pray. 


Title: Re: PRAYER REQUESTS - Please list here
Post by: Anna on October 10, 2007, 09:35:00 AM
I want to ask everyone to pray for rain for my area.  There are mature trees (a Douglas fir and 3 holly trees--not the shrub kind but the tall regular tree) kind dying in my front yard now.  Pecans this year turned out the size of large peanuts and unusable totally.

We have had about two real rains since Easter and a couple of heavy drizzles.  Some a couple of miles away have green lawns and pastures but right here, not only is the grass dead, it is completely gone in many parts of my yard, creating dust that effects my asthma and I have bronchial irritation constantly from it.  I

I don't think I will ever be able to get all this dust and grit out of my house and it has sand in it and is gritty and scratches the floors and furniture, etc.

Trees are turning already far too early and I suspect many are beginning to actually die.  Evergreens are brown, etc.

So please remember my area in your prayers and pray for rain for us.  This is just like in the olden times when people did this.  With so little grass for pastures, it is decimating the livestock as they are having to be taken to market to prevent having to feed them over winter creating havoc for farmers who have already lost their crops.  People are losing their homes because of this.

Thanks for any prayers sent our way.

I know I don't have a whole lot to say anymore, but I do read here everyday and pray for all of your concerns.  I'll try to do better about speaking up as I know how important words of encouragement are. 

Truthseeker your daughter and her babies are in  my prayers.

 cubbee your nephew is in my prayers.  And your family.

 Tidy no prayer is too great or small for Jesus.  Your kitty's are in my prayers.

Anna I think of you each day, and pray that rain comes your way.

If ya'll could keep these things in your prayers I'd sure appreciate it.

My sister-in-law Tommie is not doing very well.  COPD

My good buddy Carol has been diagnosed with Breast cancer.  2 Lymph nodes are being removed on the 22nd, and masectomy of left breast shortly after.

Our friend Gerald has lung cancer.  Not sure yet about the prognosis.  He is in his 80's.

God Bless you all.

Not sure what a prayer chain is but I have two people that I think of often besides Natalee that I would like to pray for.

I prayer chain is 24 hours of solid prayer... like I say I will pray for 30 minutes starting at 8:00 am... until 8:30 am and then you say I will start at 8:30 until 9:00 and then Klaasend says 9-9:30 and Sunny says ok... 9:30-10 etc.. until we have continously prayed for each other for 24 hours...

Hoping we have interest...

If you want to start a prayer chain just let me know for what day.  Maybe Saturday morning through Sunday morning would be good?  I can set up the spreadsheet and start posting it, people can choose their times.

How does your prayer chain work?

You pick a time (all times are Eastern) then just pray for whatever you want to for 30 minutes.  The idea is to have one full day of prayer.   You don't have to tell anyone what you are praying for, just cover the time you choose.

He is, Snoopy!  And this is a day that the Lord has made--let us rejoice.

A person can't have too active a prayer life.  I am always trying to improve my own and think it is one of the best things a person can do for themselves.

So where are the rest of our male posters???  I think I will go nag at them on the Musing thread.  I see only TWO on the list.  Strong, righteous men make for a better society.

Post by: Angiex911dsptchr on October 13, 2007, 05:56:09 PM
Just about finished up with my prayers. I kept everyone in mind here. Also those who may need prayers, that have not asked, and for other folks as well in my life.  I prayed these prayers.. along with others.. inserted our names where need be,. Sharing some of my favorites if anyone wants to use them.  :)

Prayer to the Sacred Heart for the Sick

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place into Your Hands, wounded out of love for us, all those I know and love who are ill, injured or in need of Your healing touch in any way. I remember those who are at home and those in hospitals and nursing homes, those who are recovering slowly, those who are lonely or afraid. Be with them all, most loving Jesus, especially those for whom I now pray: (pause to mention all those you wish to remember.)

Lord Jesus, please send Your Mother Mary to be with them in their time of need. May she who knew life's sorrow and pain in her own heart, console them with the joy of her Immaculate Heart now reigning with You in heaven.

In Your wisdom, Lord, increase in them Your gifts of Faith in Your Church, Hope in Everlasting Life, and Love both forgiving and peace-giving. If it is Your will, restore them to fullness of health and strength. And bring all of us home at last together with Mary and all Your Saints. Amen.



Prayer for Expectant Mothers

Father we thank you for your marvellous gift;
you have allowed us to share in your divine parenthood.
During this time of waiting,
we ask you to protect and nurture
these first mysterious stirrings of life.
May our child come safely into the light of the world
and to the new birth of baptism.

Mother of God,
we entrust our child to your loving heart.

Amen.




Prayer for Employment


You govern your creation, O God,
and bring it to perfection by the work of our hands.
Hear the prayers of your people who ask for work
that will enhance their human signity
and promote the upbuilding of your kingdom.
Enable them to provide for those confided to their care
either by family ties or by charity we owe to one another
for the betterment of human life.
We ask this blessing in the name of Jesus
who laboured with his own hands while he lived on earth.

Amen.




Prayer for Those who Await a Soldier's Return

God of all goodness,
Look with love on those who wait
for the safe return of their loved ones
who serve in the armed forces of their country.
In faith and hope, we turn to you for comfort.
Grant that we may trust in your mercy
and send an angel to sustain us as we await their safe
return.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.



Prayer for Friends and Family left at Home


O God, Protector of all people and nations,
protect my family and friends at home
from the violence and evil of others.
Keep them safe from the weapons of hate and destruction
and guard them against the deeds of evildoers.
Grant them your protection and care
in tranquility and peace.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.


Loving and tender God, touch my heart with hope. Touch my mind with clarity; touch my soul with peace. And, touch my body with the warmth of Your healing Presence. Grant me courage to face the future, insight to understand life's trials, wisdom to discern how I can touch the lives of others, and the comfort of persons who care about me as I reach for Your loving Hands. In Jesus' Name. Amen



PRAYER TO YOUR GAURDIAN ANGEL    :smt059
 

Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day,
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
Amen.

I'm confused one minute nobody for 10pm  looks like 6am will be ok??  Double prayer won't hurt either

Well I didn't get back sooner, but I did say my prayers in my 12 est slot and I'm going to join Karo for the 11:30 pm est slot.  In the early afternoon DH and I went to a school carnival.

In the car, I took off my diamond wedding band to put on hand lotion, holding the ring on my lap.  He made a left turn and the ring flew off my lap between the seat and door.  We stopped, searched every crack, and could not find the ring anywhere.  This ruined the afternoon for us and we were both upset.  I told him to just say a prayer and go on with our day. Before we left the school grounds we sat in the car, held hands and said a prayer for the ring to be found.

When we got home he opened the car doors, looked in the slot under the sliding rear door where I had searched earlier.  The ring was right there!  We were so happy!  I knew God would help find that ring!  We could find no way that ring could possibly have fallen into that area, and I had looked there and put my hand there earlier with no luck.  Thank God for prayers answered.

I have learned that it's not what is seen on the outside of a person that God cares about.  It's what is in the heart of that person that matters most to Him.  So whether you are ornery or ill tempered or even just nonchalant about things, it's what God hears when he speaks to your heart that counts.  After all, when it's all said and done the only thing that counts in this life is what you as an individual did from your heart that really matters. Everything else is going to wither away with time.

You all are such an inspiration to me!  I just finished up my midnight prayer and feel such a calm and healing around me.  I just checked in and was so surprised at how fast all the time slots filled!  God has truly blessed this site and those who are members, especially those who have been involved in this prayer chain.

May GOD bless you all and your families and friends in need of prayer, you are very special people!

With Love,

Dihannah

After I said my prayers for everyone here in need, I said a few words to my mom (she passed away in 1998)  Mom told me everything would be OK and to keep up the good work.  She reminded me that I could do anything I set my mind to.  I miss her.

We had a light rain of about twenty minutes recently.  Next week we have from a 20% to a 70% chance for rain every day.  Please pray that we get it.  There are about five trees in my front yard that look dead or dying.  Just to have them removed will cost me a fortune and I am very poor.  Can't afford to sod a yard this large ye
