    Prayer Request Needed

    Hi, even though I rarely post here I do keep all you in my thoughts and prayers. Now I'm requesting some prayers.

    My parents have been out of town in San Clemente and I called earlier today to check up on things and to see when they'd be back in town. I've been watering their plants and making sure that eveything is okay at their house. Since they didn't answer I thought that they went to San Diego to my brothers house.

    My mom called me back tonight and said that she just got out of the hospital. She had been having a hard time breathing on Wed. night. She called the advice nurse on Thurs. and she told her to go the ER. My mom thought about it but didn't want to spend all day there so she didn't go. She then had a horrible night on Thurs. and was up and down all night. On Fri. morning she told my dad that they were going to the ER.

    They did some tests and found out that her heart is enlarged and she has some fluid in her lungs. She has congestive heart failure and it may be due to a virus. Her father died of congestive heart failure. They decided to admit her to the hospital and monitor her and run more tests. They did an ultrasound and they also found a gallstone in her gallbladder which will need to removed in the future. She's had no pain from this.

    She's now on medication and she'll either stay the same or improve over time. The fluid is now out of her lungs so she should be able to sleep fine. She needs to not do any strenuous activities, heavy lifting, or go outside when it's too cold or too hot. She'll go back for more tests later on with her local doctors. My parents will probably be back in town this Thurs.

    I'm so glad that she went to the ER. She had a similar attack the last time they were in San Clemente but it went away and her local doctors couldn't find anything wrong with her. I hope that she'll continue to improve. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks.

    Saying prayers for all these requests.
    krazy, I'm so glad your mom went in. There are a lot of things they can do to help her.
    Scooter's mom, Extra prayers for your BIL, I lost my BIL to pancreatic cancer too, but as someone else mentioned, he lived much longer than what they said he could. Don't give up, enjoy every minute with him. Kay, I've been following about your family and your grandpa, I''m keeping your family in my prayers.

    Thanks PT for all the prayers during our Sherman's recent illness, it means a great deal to us.

    krazyaboutkatz-i'm so sorry about your mom's heart troubles.did her dad also have an enlarged heart?
    I dated a guy many years ago that just had a heart transpant at 26 years old...from heredatery genes.His mom has had an enlarged heart...his mom's brother had a heart transplant from an enlarged heart and now his sister's 15 year old boy has an enlarged heart.
    only him (The guy i dated)and his uncle needed the transplant.
    I hear the 26 year old is in his early 40's married with kids and his uncle is still alive after 20 something years after his heart transplant.
    They can do wonders(Some doctors with hearts).
    I hope for the best and future good health for your mom.I also think you should get yours checked early,for early detection so you can live to be 110 years old.
    Oh...the guy i dated was written up in all the local papers about his heart and the job well done by the doctors.His family has done remarkable.

    Thank You Kim for this wonderful siggy

    Prayers for all those who need them.

    I need prayers. Prayers to help me cope better. Prayers to try and enjoy my life more. I wouldn't even mind some prayers for me to get angry. I still can't even get angry and pissed off at him. The pain just seems to override everything else. Prayers that I can realize that I do want to be here alive and well. The dark thoughts are invading my mind again. End the pain, end the pain.

    Robin. Still seeing your counsellor? Maybe you need a different one?

    I hope you get angry soon - no person is worth losing your life over. But this is progress - even thinking you want to get angry - and not frantic that the other person will change or change their mind. Looks like a change to me.

    Maybe getting angry at the dark thoughts and telling them 'where to go' would be a start. I am not kidding.

    It's darkest before the dawn, hon.

    Repeat gently: "Thy will be done." Repeat it.

    Pray for serenity to accept what you can't change. (Other people, places and things).

    For courage for what you can. (Your reaction, with faith or without).

    Wisdom to know the difference.

    Acceptance, in my books, has nothing to do with liking something - FAR from it. It means facing life on life's terms. Acknowledging that is the way it is. It bites. It sucks. It hurts like h***.

    "Unless I accept life on life's terms, I cannot be happy."

    Please pray for my nephew Nathan. (You will find the whole story under "They came and took him! What do I do now?" in General. He really needs a lot of prayers.

    My grandfather is home now - for good. Which means, for as long as he behaves. Who know's what's next but I HOPE this means he's on his way to recovery.

    Prayers for my mom, please. She has been through two years of chronic sinus trouble with one of her two cats (who belonged to my late sister). Up to a week ago, she had started feeding the poor guy by hand. His character was always constant, but he had been sneezing stuff with a lot of blood...

    He had surgery 10 days ago...came home on Sunday. Mom learned to syringe feed him, gave him lots of love...and this morning the surgeon called to say he had nasal cancer. It hardly ever happens, which is why they went ahead with the surgery. The CT scan was done...but it doesn't show malignancy.

    There is no cure...chemo or radiation are palliative only...and he had already stopped eating except for being hand-fed.

    She worked so hard with him, up three times a night, feeding 5 times a day.

    Pyka went to the Bridge at noon today.

    Pray she gets a good sleep tonight...pray she has peace. She did everything possible for that dear boy.

    Pray for Pyka too.

    thanks

    Prayers, please, for my Aunt. She had emergency surgery yesterday for a malignant brain tumor. She is elderly (82, I think) and far from home. She lives in Indiana and was in Iowa visiting her granddaughter. She is in intensive care, and sedated. If she opts for chemotherapy, she will live 6 months, if no chemo, 3-4 weeks. I spent many summer vacations with her and my Uncle and my cousins on their farm as a child. Any prayers you could send out for her to be peaceful and restful would be appreciated.
