A PRAYER REQUEST FOR TED---SUSIE'S HUSBAND (SHE JUNKS)

Thanks to all of you that are praying for
(or sending good thoughts and well wishes)
to

I wanted to give you an update
and ask for more prayers.
While we were down visiting my daughter, 
Mimi, and her family for Thanksgiving
in Indiana,
MyHero and I drove about 20 minute south
to the hospital where Ted was a patient.
Isn't he just a sweet looking man?
This has been a long, arduous journey
involving lots of ups and downs.
Lots of 'scares' and anxiety producing incidents.

Today Ted had radiation.
Tomorrow at 3am (Wednesday)
Ted is undergoing a 
BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT.
This is a very serious procedure
but it offers lots of hope for 
remission and a cure.

Please keep them wrapped in your heart
and continue to pray 
and/or send healing thought
and good wishes
their way.

Thank you all so much 
for your outpouring
of love and caring.
I know Susie and Ted appreciate
each and every one of you.

I will fill you in when I hear from Susie.
Have a great rest of the week!

ps- I didn't forget about the 
Pick Your Favorite Mother's Day Table.
I am waiting a few extra days so
everyone that wants to play along can do so.

Praying now for Ted and his family, as he goes through this wonderful bone marrow transplant, may it fill his body with new blood, new hope, and healing, as only God can do. Praying for the wonderful person who is providing the bone marrow, that God will bless this person with peace and comfort and strength. May God work His powerful healing in Ted and bring him back to good health and renewed strength. Praying in Jesus' Name. Amen. Leukemia is a horrible disease. My brother just went through the past nine months of constant pain and suffering, chemo and so many "new treatments", and sadly he never became a candidate for the bone marrow transplant. My other brother and I were both matches and ready and willing to provide if the call came, but it didn't come. My precious brother Russell came to the end of his earthly journey yesterday morning, and is now beginning the new adventure of his life in heaven...free from pain and suffering at last. My prayer is that Ted will be able to receive this wonderful gift of new life from the transplant and be able to continue his earthly journey here with his family for many years to come. Praying now for a successful surgery today. Amen.

I remember when you and your husband went to see sweet Susie and her Teddy bear! I loved that you did! I most certainly am praying for Ted, from the marrow of my bones. That might sound corny but I don't care, I mean it.

CHERI said...

Just sent up a prayer and feel blessed to be able to do so. Yesterday we lost a good friend who was the father of 3 young men that we are both very close to. He had been sick but was doing better and the heart attack that took him took everyone by surprise. We went to visitation tonight and it broke my heart. Life is wonderful but sure can be a roller coaster ride.

Pam said...

Its terrible when you hear that someone is sick. He looks great though. And as for waiting for some last folks to pick a table....haha, at least it is not me this time.

Katie Isabella said...

Yes he IS a sweet looking fellow. I love that true description. I will add him to my prayer list to be sure. XXX
