Doctors say 6 months w/o treatment, 1 yr, at most w/ treatment. All of this in 2 weeks time. So sick myself to be of much help, but, will push to help my mom as much as I can. Refused hospital admit so I will be available to go to them if/when needed. They are putting in a port in next week for chemo treatments. NEED prayers from DC family and friends.
DC friends, step dad diagnosed w/ stage 4 lung cancer, has spread to brain, etc. Asking for prayers?

Many thanks to those of you that have responded. Those who know ME, know I am going thru a very difficult time, medically. Full body scan on Tuesday to see if there are any more tumors, or anything not yet diagnosed, as have been very sick lately, much more so than normal. I ask not for prayers for me, I am good with my Lord, and ready for him to bring me home. Please pray for Tom. It hurts to see a loved one go down so fast. My mother is strong, but, to lose both of us so close together may be too much. All prayers appreciated!!! Please, don't let a day go by w/o letting your loved ones know that they are loved...Once again, THANK YOU to all that have responded, it means a lot to me...........

Pickles I am very touched by your prayer!! I asked for prayers, and that is just what you gave me. That IS being a friend!! My time is limited, something me and my team of doctors have talked about at length. I am GOOD with my Lord, and ready to go home. My house is in order..It really is hard to know what to say when someone is sick. I have seen my demise coming for some time, so its no big deal, have had time to get right with God and "things" taken care of. So worried about Tom as he continues to decline more each day. NOW, doctors have changed his prognosis to 6 months at most, w/ or w/o treatment. Relatives that have seen him say they'd be surprised if he makes it to New Year. I am contagious right now from nasty infection in blood stream, and have been told to be careful who I am around, so a visit is out, even if I could. Even healthy people have to be careful around me until we get it better under control, if we can. Pickles, I truly do appreciate all that have answered this plea for prayers, and all the kind words. Hon, you gave me exactly what I asked for, and that, my friend, is awesome. I am sure the ones that said they would pray, did, and thats wonderful. Reading your prayer felt like we were praying together. Pickles, you ARE a friend!! I thank you for putting so much of yourself into responding to my request. You are a blessing to me........
Hello ChelleKay and my heartfelt prayers are with you and your family. May your mental acuity be the strength you need to help your family. Sometimes it is the words we speak that provide the strength and not the actions that we do.
Don't think about the things you cannot do but the things you can that will see you all through.
May the Light of the Lord shine upon you all and provide you and your family with what you need...
Chellekay, you and your step dad are in my prayers. Please take care of your self also. Cancer is a hard desease to treat. Your step father has a very caring daughter.God will see him not suffer and be in his joyful world when the time of passing comes. You need to have lots of support at this sad time my friend. You be strong and healthy and god bless you and your step dad. I will pray deeply for you both, Caringlady
Our Dearest ChelleKay.
I've asked God to give me the words to talk to you because I don't have them. Your request for prayers is the BEST thing one person can do for another.
I've been searching for over 15 hours to find the right words to say to you. It's hard for me. I don't have friends because I can't be a friend. I rely on God to give me words. I kept thinking and reading all night. The same thing kept running through my head. So, I've decided that this is my prayer for you and your step dad and mother.
Our Father, who Art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, and deliver us from every evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen Matthew 6:9-13
I pray this over and over when I'm in deep pain. I find security and comfort in the Lords Prayer. Life ends, but love is eternal.
ChelleKay, I don't know what your health problems are, but they sound very deep and heavy. I feel for you. I wish there were something I could say or do. I do know that through your personal sacrifice, God is looking at you from heaven saying "That's My daughter," as he smiles.
May you have Faith, Hope and Love,
