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.

My sister and I watched my Mum die at home, bed ridden for 9 months (Stomach cancer/spread to esophagus). She was not well enough for  operations and refused treatment. Her decision was to take the last 9 months she had to live and just go with it. The last 3 months were the worst and the final week is something I'd rather not discuss. I hope your Mom can go quietly in her sleep and not suffer. Make sure she is set up with a morphine drip for the pain, in fact...demand it.  I wasn't close to my Mum, so I suppose that makes a difference, but you will get through it, we all do. I am not one to give comfort to others and I rarely, if ever come to this thread because I am a non-believer and do not pray. I just happened to stroll in here today to find out what is wrong with Darla and saw your post. My thoughts are with you and with Darla as she awaits her news...and with all others who are suffering in their own lives.

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.

Thanks, Muffy, for setting up the candles.

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
English Standard Version (ESV)
2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.[a]


Praying for miracles.

You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I'd be a fool
You are my all in all

Worthy is Your name

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name

When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Oh my Jesus, Lamb of God

I wanted to tell you that I lost my Father to lung cancer almost 14 years ago.  He was diagnosed the same month I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd son.  It is so hard seeing someone you love so much suffer.  Cancer is such a horrible thing.  My main focus during the time he was sick was spending time with him - as much as I could and trying my best to make our time as upbeat and positive as possible.  I knew he wouldn't get well, and I wanted to be sure I had no regrets when he passed.  I treasure that time together, my oldest son at the time was 5 and would just go and lay in the bed beside him and talk for the longest time...I never thought he could stay still that long.  It is a precious memory for both of us today.  The night he died, our family was there together, and me being 6mos pregnant needed to go home.  I told him goodbye, kissed him and went home.  About an hour later my brother called to tell me he had passed.  I truly think he wanted me safely home before he passed.  I am convinced he chose to let go.  He was suffering and although I miss him every day, I knew he was going to a much better place - where he would be whole again.  Over time, you will be able to smile at the sweet memories you have of your mother.  Please dont dwell on the time of illness, think of the good.  I feel him near me.  I smile and talk to him often. Love never dies, it just changes.

Psalms 30: 1-5

I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.  O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.  O LORD, you brought my soul up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.  Sing to the LORD, you saints of His; praise His holy name.  For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning
.


Joy Comes in the Morning

If you've knelt beside the rubble of an aching, broken heart,
When the things you gave your life to fell apart;
You're not the first to be acquainted with sorrow, grief or pain,
But the Master promised sunshine after the rain.

Hold on my child, joy comes in the morning,
Weeping only lasts for the night;
Hold on my child, joy comes in the morning,
The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight.

To invest your seed of trust in God in mountains you can't move,
You have risked your life on things you cannot prove;
But to give the things you cannot keep for what you cannot lose,
Is the way to find the joy God has for you.

Hold on my child, joy comes in the morning,
Weeping only lasts for the night;
Hold on my child, joy comes in the morning,
The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight.

The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight.
Just in sight!

Thank you Kimmy for sharing your story and offering encouraging advice.  It means a lot.  It is a difficult time.  I am staying strong and enjoying our time together.  Though she isn't doing well she is blessed because she is not in any pain.  Her quality of life is poor...but she is handling it exceptionally well.  I will keep your encouraging words close and lean on them.  Janet, thank you as well for your beautiful posts...they mean so much.  Your kindness is so helpful in this difficult time.

JHebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever
.



Unshakable

You are my light and my salvation
Why should I be afraid?
When darkness falls, your love surrounds me
Why should I be afraid?
In the time of trouble I will wait for you
When I'm overwhelmed I will call on you
You are the rock that can't be moved

You are unshakeable
You are my strong deliverer
You are my rock and I will not be shaken
You are my champoin
You are a mighty warrior
You are my rock and I will not be shaken
For you are unshakeable

Listen to my cry, O God of mercy
Don't hide your face from me
You are my strength, You are my stronghold
Come speak your words to me
In the time of trouble I will wait for you
When I'm overwhelmed I will call on you
You are the rock that can't be moved

You are the same yesterday, today and always

Good Morning Monkeys,

Just stopping in to give an update on what is going on. First of all God Bless you and Thank you so very much for the prayers.

I have an appointment at 10 am tomorrow for a needle biopsy on the tumor. I started yesterday with some complications from the temporal artery biopsy. It was healing well with no pain. Yesterday it started swelling around the incision and having some pain and tenderness. When I woke up this morning I had turned some time during the night was was sleeping on that side when I woke up. There was a small pool of blood on my pillow. I have called the surgeon and he is in surgery til 1:00 pm. The nurse said she would talk with him and call me back as he is booked solid for the next 2 days in the office. Got to take my mom to a Drs. appt at 2:15 . So l hope to hear back from the dr. by the time I get back. I have an appt to get the results of the biopsy on the tumor on Friday and will set a surgery date then for the removal of it. It seems to be growing at an alarming rate. Please keep me in your prayers. I am just feeling really crappy right now.
I still have all my Monkey family in my prayers. God Bless!
