Cancer Surgery For Teresa's Hubby Tomorrow- Please Pray For Them

and I have been in contact several times lately.
Her dear, wonderful husband, Toby,
has been handed a terrible diagnosis.
This is the only picture I could find 
of him on her blog.
Yes!  He was a serviceman  
that proudly served our country.
So, this is one little service 
WE can repay HIM with-
PRAYERS!
He has cancer.
Not just ONE type of cancer
but cancer of multiple origins.
They are doing surgery tomorrow and there
will be follow up surgeries when the
results of the first surgeries are 
fully evaluated.

Teresa is such a sweet, dear person
and VERY talented..
Please pray for her, too, because when your spouse
is under siege-so are you.
Pray for peace and serenity for
Toby AND Teresa.
Ask that God guides the surgeons' hands
and pray for a healing to follow.
Thank you!

I am not trying to push religion on anyone

and I don't like religious controversy
but I do believe
in the healing power of  prayer
and that is why I do this.

Blessings to all of you 
and a special blessing
for Toby tomorrow as he starts his journey 
towards recovery.

I have been there....it is almost worse for the spouse that is not sick. Teresa will find that she is stronger than she ever knew and I believe in miracles and prayers too. If you read this Teresa - Take help and don't feel bad it makes people feel good to bring food or watch kids, what ever you need. Nana - Thank you for finding someone in need and pulling us together.

I am so happy you spread the need for prayer to all of us. There are so many requests that I have just grouped them into the "wellness and happiness for my dear blogging friends" category. I know Our Lord pays attention to each of our petitions - because that is what he said he would do.
