I know that I have never met a single person on here...but I feel comfortable in posting my troubles.  There are so many good-hearted people here that I know will send prayers up for me.  My Mom is dying.  She is in the pre-active dying phase.  I am here spending time with her.  It is so difficult to see her like this.  She is so child-like which is such a hard thing to watch.  I miss her already and she isn't even gone.  I think that I cannot make it through and when she passes I just don't know if I can handle that.  I'm wondering if anyone else here has watched their mother die of cancer...lung cancer to be exact?  Maybe someone can provide me with some comfort.  I am just not feeling it right now.

labubske  Prayers for you and your mother. There so many monkeys that can say things much better than I. I didn't watch my mother pass with cancer. But did watch her pass with emphysema. After a 6 year battle she passed away. While it was had watching and caring for her though her many battles and become a different person. Not the mom I knew. It is so hard watching and caring for our loved ones when we know they are going to die and leave us. Prayers God gives you the strength and peace to help you though this most difficult time and prayers your mothers passing is peaceful for her. You and your family are in my prayers. You are right there are some many loving and caring monkeys. God Bless an angelic monkey

I took this sorrowful journey with my beloved Aunt, my Mom's younger sister. Her cancer was in the bile duct.  She was my heroine and just eleven years younger than me.  But this is not about me or Joycie.

I have no sage wisdom to offer labubske, but I do offer my heartfelt thoughts and prayers to you and your Mom and family.

 I expect that through your pain, you are unable to see your own strengths and courage.  Unable to appreciate that you put your life on hold and took the trip to your Mom's area when she was placed in hospice care so that you could be there with her to offer her comfort.

Perhaps you could speak with the hospice workers and explain some of your feelings.  Their compassion and understanding extends to their patients' family members as well.

I know my presence brought my loved one great comfort.  She told me so.  She was so special and appreciated any and every gesture, no matter how small. That knowledge comforts me, to this very day.

God bless you and your Mom and may her final journey be peaceful and free of pain.

Isaiah 40:31
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary[/

The Power of Your Love

Lord I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I've found in You
And Lord I've come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love

Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your spirit leads me on
In the Power of Your love

Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As you live in me
And Lord renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
By the Power of Your love

Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love

Draw me close
Hold me near
Draw me closer
Hold me near
You draw me close to You
And never let me go

And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love
In the power of Your love

Almighty God, we come with humble hearts into your presence.  We lay at your feet the dear Mother of labubske and labubske herself.  Father you know better than they do the path which they now travel.  It is filled with sorrow and pain which at times is overwhelming and so hurtful.  Anoint them with your grace, touch them from the top of their heads through the soles of their feet and cloak them in your comfort and peace.  Cause labubske to touch her sweet Mother with healing hands, not healing of the flesh but healing of the soul.  Take away fear from them and give them the assurance of remembering not one of your children fall from your palm.  We lift prayers of love to help them feel connected to this wondrous world you created.  Amen and Amen.

Good Sunday Morning Monkey friends,

I haven't posted in quite a while, but keep all of you guys in my prayers. Kitty Mom , I will keep these precious boys in my prayers and will keep the faith that God will give them a miracle. God Bless your friends for all they are doing for them.

Labubske, my heart is breaking for you. I will keep you and your Mom in my prayers. I lost my dad 24 yrs ago, and it is not easy to watch. He didn't have cancer but several other problems. Everyone deals with their grief in different ways. As the days go by with you by her side, God will prepare you for what is to come. The acceptance will come and you will be able to let her go.  I know you being with her is a great comfort to her.  Tell her how much you love her and that it is alright for her to go. I will pray extra prayers for you both, that her journey is peaceful and without pain and that you have  strength, and peace to get through it. God Bless you both.

Sister, you always know the right words to bring comfort to all of us Monkeys. I pray you are feeling better soon and completely cured. You and your sister are always in my prayers.

Janet, your scripture always brightens my day.

I need to ask for prayers for myself today. I was diagnosed Tuesday with a tumor in my parotid gland in the left side of my neck and it is pressing on the carotid artery. I have gone through so much testing and drs. appts in the last 3 weeks. I had asked my family dr. about the lump several times and he said it was a swollen lymph node and that some antibiotics should take care of it. Well it never went away. I started having headaches in the left temple area and was having trouble with my vision. I made an appt with the eye dr. and he found a blockage in the vessel behind my left eye . We were able to get that to move on through the vessel, but he wanted me to have a temporal artery biopsy. It took 3 tries to get me into surgery because my potassium was so low they could not put me to sleep. The biopsy showed some inflammation in the vessels and arteries. I showed the surgeon the node on my neck and he wanted MRI's done. That showed up the Tumor. I have an appt with a specialist tomorrow that will be doing the surgery to remove the entire gland. I will not know if it is malignant or benign until it is removed. I will know my surgery date tomorrow. I have put it in my God Box and I am at peace with whatever it turns out to be. But any prayers I can get will be appreciated.
My thoughts and prayers are always with my Monkey family. God Bless!

Darla,  it's always good to see you, and I had noticed you hadn't been posting much lately.  I'm so sad to hear you've been sick.    I believe in the power of prayer, and I've started a candle group in your name so that we monkeys can pray together for your health to be restored. You've always struck me as a strong woman Darla and I pray your inner strength and spiritual beliefs will carry you through to recovery.

Thank you all so very much.  Your kind words and prayers mean the world to me.  I had a pretty tough last night with this. 
labubske,
I've been given the honor was being with my grandfather, my father-in-law, and just this spring, my mother-in-law as they passed from this earth and into Heaven.  I see active dying just like active labor.  The person is simply laboring into the next life.  It can be loud and scary for both the patient and the family.  Even so, it is an honor to be there to help your loved one move on into a place where there is no more pain.  I thank God for allowing me to witness the deaths of my family members.  The experience has been different each time and I've learned so much from each situation.  Most of all, I've learned that each day is a precious gift that should be cherished right then because tomorrow is promised to no one.

I hope that you are blessed as you minister to your mom.  I pray that God will fill your mind with only the sweetest of memories.  (((hugs)))

I wanted to give an update on the two little boys from my church.  God is working so wonderfully in the lives of this family and will continue to do so in the days ahead.

After some intense therapy with different child behaviorists, the parents met with doctors for advice on what arrangements would be in the best interests of the children.  They were told that they should have never been given two children with RAD.  Apparently, that was an oversight by the local DFACS when placing the children.  So, if they were willing to give up their company to be at home full time and give up their children and grandchildren so that the boys are 100% of their focus, then there was a minute possibility that these boys could one day live productive lives.  Well, there is no way they can both be at home full time.  They are paying out of pocket now for all the therapy, meds, and hospital stays that the boys are doing.  If they give up their company, they have no income.  Also, they have 3 grown children who all have grandkids.  They love their kids and are very close.  So, the specialists with all the answers tell them that the boys need one on one attention each day for the rest of theirchildhoods.  A few days after this meeting, one of the therapists of the boys called and asked if she could take the younger (non-violent) boy.  She's willing to retire so that she and her retired husband can devote themselves to this child.  God opened a door.  They won't adopt him.  They'll just be legal guardians until enough time has passed that either the child is better and willing to be adopted by this couple or the child doesn't improve and he is old enough to be placed in a permanent mental health facility.  The chances of this child healing from his abuse are much better than his brother's.  So, one child left today to begin healing with a couple that can devote all their time and attention to him.

The other boy has been in a facility for two weeks now.  The parents spent last weekend at the facility per the request of the doctors.  The child spent hours in intensive therapy with multiple doctors before the parents were brought in and shown what he was talking about.  Apparently, he'd planned their murders.  Every detail was planned out.  He never shed a tear, he never acted ashamed, he had no emotion at all.  They were told that this child has no conscience but is highly intelligent.  It was suggested that they seek placement with a childless couple who could devote all their attention to him 24/7 and that unless there was a breakthrough by his 14th birthday, he then be placed in a permanent mental health facility for the rest of his life.  The parents were warned that he is a danger to them and society.  They were told that he suffered so much abuse as an infant and toddler that his brain is in an animal instinct mode.  Basically, kill or be killed. 

This is tearing this family apart.  The mom is already showing signs of anxiety and depression.  The dad feels like hes failed. They are mourning for these two little boys that they opened their hearts to just a few years ago.  Its just heartbreaking.

But, God has given the 9 yr old a chance at healing and we are praying that He sends a miracle to the 11 yr old as well.  Please continue to pray for this family and all the kids out there who are abused beyond what we can imagine.

Luke 17:2
