    *Urgent Prayer Request*

    I know I haven't posted much lately . . . things have been busy . . . and I know this isn't "cat related" but it's times like this that I realize how much I appreciate my extended online family . . .

    I just found out that my uncle (Bennie) had a scan done of his chest today and they found a mass on his lungs . . . This is very upsetting to our family. We're VERY close to him. My mom was next to the youngest of 9 kids, and since he's so much older than her, he's more like a dad to her.

    My uncle Bennie is a Vietnam Vet. He was in Vietnam when the concentration of Agent Orange was at it's strongest. He says he can remember standing in the swamps, watching the planes overhead dropping it into the jungles . . . onto them. We've researched it and during the years that he was there, the concentration of AO was VERY strong! The strongest that they dropped during the war.

    Over the past few years, he's really seen a decline in his health. He constantly keeps a cough . . . he's had places removed from his skin . . . the doctors won't tell him what they are for some reason . . . BTW, he is only able to treat at a VA Hospital.

    I hope & pray that they will take care of him. I'm not sure that they will.

    They're bringing in a lung specialist . . . he's not sure when his appointment will be.

    Oh, by the way . . . he's in his late 50s . . . he has a 9 year old daughter. She is his entire life . . . and he is hers. This will be so sad to see her go through.

    I've had several family members die from cancer . . . 2 of my dad's brothers have died from lung cancer . . . it's hard to beat. I hate to say impossible . . . but impossible.

    Please pray for my Uncle Bennie . . . his daughter . . . my mom . . . me . . . our whole family.

    I think it's a disgrace the way the Viet Nam vets are treated. I hope your family can make it through this very difficult time.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.
    [/SIZE]



    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.
