I had an outreach from someone
via Messenger.
She is traveling now- 
gone for the winter-
 but is worried
about her brother's wife.
This is her plea.
Please pray for my brother Bob
and his wife Jeri.
Jeri has been in the hospital for 9 days.
She had surgery on her back.
She is not doing well.
She can not walk.
She does not have feeling
in her hands or feet.
Her digestive system is not working well.
My brother is very sad and discouraged.
Many things are not going well.
He is desperate.
He is tired. He is discouraged.
Thank you for your prayers.

Please pray for the person that sent this to me, too.
Her name is Carol
and she is suffering the anxiety that comes from
being away from home when someone is ill.

Also, Robbin's mom, Donna-
Down On The Farm
During the procedure Monday on mom's back, they discovered she has another compressed vertebra.  So 3 compression fractures instead of 2.  Sometime in the last 3 weeks another vertebrae became compressed.  They were only able to fix 2 of the fractures since, as the doctor explained, they can only do 2 at a time so instead of coming out of the procedure pain free . . . she's still hurting.

They have put her on a stronger pain medicine which helps a little, but of course doesn't take the pain away. She will have to go back in a couple of weeks for the same procedure to get the third compression fracture fixed. 

The only way to keep the compression fractures from continuing is to start giving her injections every six months to strengthen the bones.  But she has to have some teeth pulled before they can give her the injection, since the injection will make pulling any teeth nearly impossible, and my mom's teeth are not good.

In the middle of everything, my mom is trying to take maintenance chemo every week.

As you can imagine all of this is very discouraging to my mom, and to our entire family. 

And..continue to pray from 
my best friend's family.
Mainly her son, Mr. T.
They still don't have the full scope
of what is wrong with him
and are going to do more biopsies.
It's a scary time for all of them.

Thank you, as always, 
for all the prayers.

If you are not a pray-er-,
please send good thoughts 
and wishes their way.

I hope each and everyone
reading this will have a
blessed Sunday.

I'm so sorry for their pain and the not knowing what's wrong. God does know however and the praying in numbers will help. We are stronger together with our collective prayers!!
Sending hugs your way sweet friend. xo

Yes, praying for all. Discouragement is a bear. I know. I have been discouraged and defeated. But we must keep looking up and expecting The Lord to help us right in the middle of the mess.

Thank God for His help. . . and thank God for people like you, Diana, who will raise the call to prayer. May God bring comfort and healing to all these dear ones!

Anne's Phamilyblog said...

I will be praying. Everyday it seems we add more and more folks to our prayerful time. It is so easy to become discouraged with health issues. WE will be praying so much I will pray for healing for your sister-in-law and peace and strength for your brother. Oh my heart gets heavy when I think of those that need prayer and are weary and worried. But I know God wants us to turn to Him and trust Him. I wish more people would do this. Occasionally someone will private message me saying blogs should not be used for praying and Scripture and all I know I trust God, I do not trust this world. God bless your kind heart. Say a prayer for my sis Mary. She is winding down her dental work and will be even more beautiful when they are done with her smile. She has struggled this years with her heart issues and then her teeth just started to break off. Love and Hugs

Special prayers for all of them Diana. Life can really give us curves sometimes of so much hurt and worry. I am praying for peace and answers and relief.

Cheryl said...

Praying for these dear ones right now, sweet friend! I would also appreciate your continued prayers for my brother-in-law, LD, who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. If you could add him to your next update or prayer request post, we would be most grateful. :) You are such a warrior for so many, and I love and appreciate you so much! God bless you today!!!

Praying for all involved, I was away most of the day yesterday, and missed this. It is in God's hands, and he knows how things will be, so worry not.
