Prayer requests.

My soul sister gave me a huge scare on New Years eve. She went into the hospital to have a CT scan on his sinuses and ended up being life flighted to a major hospital with stage three lymphoma on her heart. The tumor is so big that it had partially collapsed her lung and was basically rearranging all of the organs in her chest. She was placed into a medically induced coma after she coded twice that first night in the hospital. Had she not gone in that day, she would have died in her sleep. She has now completed two rounds of chemo and is doing well. She does need prayers though. She has a long road ahead of her. She has a 90% chance of beating this and she is a fighter so I know she will beat this. She will be in treatment for 18 months to 2 years. She is getting massive doses of chemo and will be having radiation as well. She has two young daughters, one of which is a type 1 diabetic. She is fairly independent, and does well figuring out her carbs and how to program her pump. But her mother has (rightfully) micromanaged her health since she was diagnosed at age four. That is not going to be possible anymore. I know I am rambling, but these thoughts run through my mind at such a quick pace, I have a hard time keeping up on my keyboard. I worry about how she will manage to juggle her health, the health of her family and her day to day responsibilities. I will be there for her as much as I possibly can, but there are a lot of things I cannot help with. All I can really do is psychically help where I can, and give her support when she needs it. I can cheer her up when she is down and knit hats to keep her head warm now that she has lost her hair. We are sisters and I would do anything for her.


  1. I will add her to my prayers. She has a rough road ahead but she will make it with a friend like you to hold her up when she needs it.


  2. *hugs* God bless and comfort you all. ♥

  3. As one mother of a Type I diabetic daughter to another, she is in my prayers. May she feel the hand of God at every turn in this experience, and live to inspire so many others ! God bless your friend, and you too !

  4. Thanks for the kind words and prayers. I know she can beat this, it's MY sanity that's going to take the hit!

  5. Babe you have me to help your sanity when you need it!! Luckily you both are very strong. BOTH of you have to remember to pace yourselves and to rest when you need it. As much as you are going to put into helping you have to remember you also have a big health issue and need to take care of it to be able to be healthy as a support. I know you can do it cause I will kick you in the rear from time to time to remind you and we will work together to help! Love you both, always!


We love comments! We are happy to answer questions, join in debate and conversation, or just say hi. All we ask is for respect. Respect us and others. Keep it civil. Obviously we aren't afraid of cussing but we don't like anyone degraded or invalidated.

We also know we make mistakes. Feel free to call us out. You can't improve things that need it if you aren't aware of it.
