Prayer Request

My 18 year old sister was admitted to the hospital yesterday for suspected meningitis. So far the tests for that have come back negative, even though it is presenting itself exactly in this way. She is positive for Mono, but is having severe pain, hardly manageable by morphine, and blackouts.

Her blood and spinal fluid has been sent to the Mayo Clinic for further testing, and she will be seeing a Neurologist today.

My sister has the highest pain tolerance of anyone I know, and she is in bad shape. Because I am pregnant I cannot go in and see her, this has been incredibly difficult for me and my sister because we are so close.

My family is tired, exhausted, frustrated and worried. We are all continuing to trust in God, the ultimate Healer. But we would appreciate your prayers, we covet them.

.the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express." ~ Romans 8:26

  1. Oh wow, we will keep her in your prayers! That's so frightening - I pray it's just mono and not Meningitis! (I say "just mono" mono is still terrible, but the lesser of the two evils I think!) Hope she is healed quickly!

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
