A PRAYER REQUEST FOR SUSIE'S (She Junks) TED!!!

I was working at the office
a few minutes ago
when I got a text
from Susie.
ALL of you know our sweet SUSIE
I was lucky enough to meet her in person
last year and, let me tell you,
she is as dear in person as she is in blogland.

I told Susie I would do the request tonight
when I got home but I feel like
I need to do it 
NOW!

Her dear, sweet 
TEDDY BEAR
was diagnosed TODAY with
ACUTE LEUKEMIA.

He was hospitalized immediately
and starts chemo tomorrow.

He is in the closest city to their home
but Susie doesn't do city driving...
so she is planning on staying there
with him.  

He will be hospitalized for 
at least a month.

Please pray that the 
CHEMO is SUCCESSFUL.
Also pray for peace of mind for
TED &SUSIE!

As we well know, when our loved ones
are ill we worry and
many times we just feel helpless.

For those of you that are not pray-ers,
please send healing thoughts and 
best wishes their way
and leave a sweet comment for Susie 
on my blog if you have the time.

Sending you love, Susie~
Thank all of you so much!

So sorry that this is happening to Ted and Susie and at this time of the year. Praying for every need of heart, mind, body, and spirit to be met for them and their family. Being in God’s hands is the safest place in all the world to be...there is real comfort there. God bless you for being Prayer Central.

Tomorrow I am having our Rosary prayers, where we do pray for the sick, so we'll definitely pray for Susie's Ted, so he can heal soon.
Blessings to them.

We've been together since the beginning, soul sisters, and this breaks my heart. Thank you, Diana, for doing this post and trying to gather us all to pray for Ted. He is the most wonderful person, a hard worker, a good husband and father. Bless him, and may God comfort him and Susie and the family during this most difficult time.

This is so saddening, I adore Susie, and Ted is a big part in her blogging so I feel I know him, too. Thanks so much, Diana. Do you know if they need financial help?

Carla from The River said...

Dear Susie,
You have been such a light for me during the time my son has been at Basic Training. I am praying for you and want to be that light for you during this time.
xx oo

We had a great visit with Sam. Thank you for the well wishes for him. He is now at Fort Gordon, Georgia for his AIT. He has his phone now, so that is fantastic. I have been getting Good Morning texts. :-)

Pamela M. Steiner said...

I will definitely be praying for Susie and Ted. My brother is going through the exact same thing...he was diagnosed in July and went immediately to the hospital and began chemo right away. His wife also stayed with him in the hospital. I am so thankful to say that as of right now he is in remission, even though he still goes for treatment each week from home. We are praying he will stay in remission. He may have a bone marrow transplant in the future. All of us siblings were tested to see if we were a match, and my other brother is a perfect match. I am a 1/2 match! Anyway, they are able to do great things now for acute leukemia if caught soon enough. Will keep your friends in my prayers. God is able.

Kathy Plake said...

Your visit and prayers-and prayer request meant so much to Susie(my mom) and Ted. This is a tough adjustment for them, especially being separated at times. Mom is a strong and independent woman who is now relying on everyone for support and rides back and forth to Indy. They are both in good hands but truly appreciate the thoughts and prayers.
Sorry I missed you and yours yesterday. Sincerely, Kathy

Down On The Farm said...

I just left Susie's blog and I'm coming here to catch up. I'm SO GLAD you were able to go and visit with them. I am praying for him and expecting wonderful results from the chemo. You and John are wonderful to go visit them which I'm sure brings back some not so good memories of John's times in the hospital. Please keep us updated on his condition and let me know if there is anything I can do. I AM PRAYING!!!!

Jenny said...

Oh dear, this is difficult news and could it have come at a worse time of the year? I don't even know Susie and her beloved but I will ask God to bless and keep them today and every day throughout this trial. xoxo

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

God bless Ted and Susie, Diana. Prayers will be said for both of them.

Susie Swanson said...

Hi I'm Susie's Blog friend and just learned about her Ted today. I knew he had went in the hospital for other things going on but was shocked to hear this. Thank you so much for the update and they are in my prayers. So nice to meet you.

Melanie said...

I do not know Susie, but I will keep her and Ted in my prayers. I clicked on the link to her blog and looked through it a bit...I see you and John visited them in the hospital. God bless you...you two are so kind and loving. xoxo
