    I read your first story about them again and teared up again, Gigi. God’s blessing to you and your niece!

  •  Anonymous #86358

    oh thanks for sharing jillruth…that was an awesome story!! it just kind of takes your breath away for a second when you see one so unexpectedly as you described.

    you’d be amazed at how many people have shared their own butterfly stories with me recently. they’re good to hear.

    now that it’s getting colder here in my neck of the woods….my little friends have temporarily left me but though out of sight they’re not out of my mind….i’ll still look for any sign i get until they come back next year.

    i’m still just in awe every time i look at the picture my niece sent. that butterfly just sitting so peacefully at the end of her braid. it actually looks like a hair tie where it placed itself…if you didn’t know better…you’d think so. amazing!! ^j^

  •  Anonymous #86341

    Oh Gigi, that is a great story! Can I share a butterfly one too? Through a series of events surrounding my husbands death I had been made aware of yellow butterflies that came to a friend as a sign of her Dad who had passed away. My connection with the butterflies came through my husband’s death 13 years ago. This friend knew my husband more than me and he was our connection. Last year on what would have been my first husband’s and my anniversary…I saw this friend at a volleyball game (our daughters play on a team together) then I told her about our anniversary would have been that day and we reminisced about him and then I looked up and here was a yellow butterfly flying above the bleachers in the gymnasium!!!!!!! I said, Oh Molly, look!! And she knew too what it meant. (this was a real butterfly, inside folks!)

    God is so very good and I just loved hearing your butterfly story!!

  •  Anonymous #86329

    Gigi – now THAT is one KOOL story!

  •  Anonymous #86328

    Yes He is! Great story.

  •  Anonymous #86327

    I’ll share a funny yet tear-filled moment with all of you. If anything, to show how God uses small things to bring about large results.

    I’ve seen a small white butterfly flutter in my yard everyday since my oldest sister passed in June.

    When my middle sister passed the beginning of this month, I began seeing 2 little white butterflies fluttering about the yard, together.

    Now, for this part of the story keep in mind………………

    it’s always been a running joke in our family about my middle sister constantly coloring her hair…she could never settle on a color/product she liked, therefore the experimenting.

    As I let my dogs out to potty, I began texting her daughter when those 2 butterflies caught my attention from a far distance away, as they entered the yard and came close to me…I noticed that 1 was a bright white and the other a very pale yellow tint.

    It was then I told my niece that the butterflies were here to visit me and then I burst out laughing and said Oh Dear God, she’s dying her hair already!!!

    It instantly lifted my nieces spirits and fun thoughts of her mom began spilling out. We reminisced for a long time and then she said auntie you will not believe this until you see it yourself and began sending a picture her boyfriend took of her the day before…it was of her with a huge white butterfly just sitting on her braid, she said it sat there for a good half hour before flying away!!

    She didn’t see the connection until I told her my story…..

    God is just amazing!!!

  •  Anonymous #86326

    Gigi, I’m so sorry. I sometimes think it is harder to watch those we love suffer, than to let them go. What a brave lady she must have been. I’m sure you have a heart full of memories, and that is what keeps our loved ones with us.

  •  Anonymous #86325

    I’m sorry Gigi but what a blessing to have her children with her.

    Diane, I hope this is all your mom has to go through.

  •  Anonymous #86324

    It’s sad to know we’ve lost a valued member of the junk community. :(

    Mary I can only imagine what you saw and went through with your mother. 2 brave women!

    Diane, I’m glad you’re mom is up and running through the orchards but please do not let her overdo it! God bless her!

    chicottagechic….so good to know you’re still around!! hello!

    lastly, thank you to all who prayed for my family, especially my sister as she bravely faced cancer. She passed away Sept 2 with her 2 kids by her side, holding each hand. She so wanted to be present with family that she refused morphine until the last 2 days of her life and even then it was the smallest dose about 12 hrs apart. I will miss her immensely but not miss having to watch her wither away and in pain. God bless you all

  •  Anonymous #86322

    Thank you everyone for your prayers. Mom finished her treatments Friday. She said she didn’t feel anything and other than being tired from the trip, hasn’t had any side effects. She refused to stay in a hotel so Sparky got to see her every night. On Thursday she took down a bushel of apples and handed them out. (We live in Musselman Applemen country!) My younger brother drove everyday and all 5 of us daughters took turns together, going along.

    Mary, I can’t imagine Mom going through cancer for 15 years! It must have been terribly hard on all of you.

  •  Anonymous #86317

    Diane, God bless your mom. It must be so difficult for all of you too. And she will miss her little dog! Maybe the dog could ride along if you find a hotel that allows dogs? My mom died at age 79, 15 years ago of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after fighting it for > 6 years. Luckily, we live in Dallas & her hospital & docs were only 15 min from her house. And God bless Kari of Meadowview Farm & all of you with relatives & friends struggling with disease & poor health now. Life can be hard enough when we are healthy! Mary

  •  Anonymous #86316

    Thanks ladies.

    I meant 4 “Hours”, it’s 2 hours each way plus traffic jams, which there always happen to be before you hit the beltway. We are going to get Mom to stay at least Tuesday and Thursday night, break it up for her. She hates to be away from home and her dog, Sparky, throws a fit when she is gone.

  •  Anonymous #86315

    A hotel room is much cheaper than a hospital room and much more comfortable. I’m praying, too. That does not sound like an exciting trip.

  •  Anonymous #86314

    Will pray for all of you Diane.

  •  Anonymous #86313

    So say a prayer for my Mom please. We start the radiation next week. Five days of driving 400 miles into Baltimore, yuck, for a 27 minute radiation treatment. God help us :) (because Mom is going to be fit-to-be-tied when she finds out we are getting a hotel room for a couple of the nights!)

  •  Anonymous #86285

    Sue: I’m still in disbelief. It was such a shock. Midge was a great inspiration to all us “junkers”. We too communicated quite often on FB. She will definitely be missed.

  •  Anonymous #86277

    Just learned of Midge’s passing and I cannot believe it. Noreen, aka Midge, met a few times here in Michigan and communicated a lot on Facebook. I will truly miss her inspiration and fun posts on FB. R.I.P., Midge, we will miss you.

  •  Anonymous #86274

    Oh No! How sad. I really don’t know what else to say! Prayers for her family. I often wonder if anything has happened to those who don’t post anymore. If there is somewhere we can send condolences please post it. I went back and read some of her posts and I’ll bet she was a hoot!

  •  Anonymous #86272

    I know junkermidge: http://junkrevolution.com/community/profile.php?id=47 hasn’t been around here lately but I’m friends with her on facebook and she was active there. There was a post today that Noreen (aka junkermidge) passed away last night. No other information was available. Her last post just a few days ago was that she was going to watch her daughter in a triathalon.

  •  Anonymous #86265

    AW it has to be a hard thing to watch your sister so sick. Prayers from here, too.

  •  Anonymous #86262

    Gigi, prayers to your sister and family. Hopefully she will get the care she needs at the nursing home and be able to come home soon.

  •  Anonymous #86258

    Saying a prayer now for all of you on this thread!

  •  Anonymous #86257

    Asking that you keep my sister and family in prayer. She’s going into nursing home today as it’s harder to care for her at home. Her legs are so swollen, she has fallen several times. She cannot eat or drink and is so skinny.

    I just pray that she’s not in pain and if so, they can contain it as she’s been through enough these last few yrs.

    She’s such a brave woman.

  •  Anonymous #86218

    Thanks everyone, Gigi she is amazing, we have an appointment at John Hopkins on the 21st to talk to all the doctors then they will schedule the radiation.

  •  Anonymous #86217

    DITV, sending prayers for your mom. God bless her for being such a healthy 88 yr old being only on blood pressure and fluid pills. Bless her even more for bearing 11 kids….wow!, what a woman!!

    CH…glad Joe is coming along.

  •  Anonymous #86215

    My BIL had a tumor the size of a dime in his ear. They got it all out! He still can hear. The wonders of modern medicine.

  •  Anonymous #86214

    Glad Joe is doing better! A lot of getting better is attitude,

    Mom was funny, she had seen on tv, a girl with a tumor in her head and they went through her nose and sucked it out, so Mom asked the doctor if they could do the same thing but it is too high. She just wants it out. We went to John Hopkins and saw the head of Nuerology, very nice man, all the doctors were.

  •  Anonymous #86213

    Joe said he has shed the wheel chair and trying to get some strength built up. That is good. The last time I talked to him he sounded like he was giving up. I pointed out to him that my DGS was pretty sick a year ago – we didn’t realize his doctor was afraid he wouldn’t make it. But the kid is up and running now. Joe says he thinks the medicine helps and a new MD has helped. I think all the prayers helps.

  •  Anonymous #86210

    Joe is not doing well. I keep telling him to drink lots of water. I’ll pray for your mom. My mom is 87. I know your worries but hopefully this won’t be any big deal for your mom.

  •  Anonymous #86209

    Please say a prayer for my Mom. She is 88, has had 11 kids, takes a blood pressure pill and a fluid pill. They found a small tumor in the middle of her forehead, a little smaller that a quarter. Don’t think it’s cancer but they are goint to do radiation to stop it from growing.

    Copperhead, hope Joe is doing well.

  •  Anonymous #86198

    DD is off the catheter. They did some tests – she is ok but on a watch and will have more tests.

    Joe is still in bad shape and continues to need prayers. Infusions every day.

  •  Anonymous #86197

    Prayers for your friend Joe and your daughter, hope tests show something the doctors can fix.

  •  Anonymous #86196

    Joe is not doing well. He has daily infusions of antibiotics. He is very weak, in a lot of pain and has to use a wheel chair to get around.

    My daughter has some tests tomorrow – finally.

  •  Anonymous #86195

    Probiotics are a lot of help. I’ll remind Joe. He has E-coli infection somewhere below his kidneys. He’s still very sick. I will pass along what you said.

  •  Anonymous #86194

    a question he may want to ask his doctor. has being on so many antibiotics depleted my system of good bacteria? do i need to take a regimen of probiotics.

    prior to my kidney surgeries, i was given 2 different antibiotics to take.after the surgery, i wasn’t feeling any better.i lost 22 lbs due to lack of eating/drinking. the thought of drinking even water made me want to puke. i was constantly nauseated, had a headache, in pain and just blah.

    my doctor was out so the older doctor at the practice said….well, why don’t we start little and work our way up from there. i think you need to purchase some otc probiotics and take some prescription ondansatron for nausea (these little pills just melt in your mouth when you can’t even drink water…thank God!)because my urologist had given me a prescription for nausea that required a full 8 oz water with it…kinda hard when you can’t stomach to do it!!

    it was a few days and i started to feel the difference…it was like a little miracle!! i could have gone back and kissed that old doctor!! it’s been a long while since my surgeries but i still stay on probiotics daily now….i reaped the benefits!!

  •  Anonymous #86183

    I’ll warn her about the show and tell… She has 5 kids and one is sure to blab it somewhere. She is still waiting for a dr visit. She says she is feeling better except for the bag. She had 4 trips to the ER since Wednesday.

    Joe is still needing a lot of prayers. He had a basement sewer back up and they are saying he has e coli so we wonder if that had anything to do with it. He’s been on 8 different antibiotics in the last week. They are still running tests. He’s had a regular parade of various doctors to check him out. He’s miserable.

  •  Anonymous #86182

    I send out prayers for health and comfort to you all copperhead. I hope they find the key to his problems and when they do it is a breeze to return him back to top health. I’d suggest getting a 2nd opinion by another dr. they may be able to determine something other than what the dr is now saying…it’s worth it!

    As for dd…God bless her too, i know kidney issues are painful, btdt and i feel for her….praying she finds a great urologist, it will make all the difference.

    Bless her kids, too. Here’s a funny to hopefully lighten your heart and mind. About 24 yrs ago when 1 of my nephews was about 10, they had show and tell at school and he proceeded to get up in front of class to declare that his mom “pee’s in a bag on her side”….my sister had to go to school later that day and when she walked in the class all the kids glared, stared and chatted up about her, trying their hardest to look under her long black skirt. When the teacher pulled her into the hall, she told her what her son said in show and tell, after explaining she just had surgery and feeling completely mortified, she left the school without even getting her son. :) We (nephew and i) laugh about it to this day…she of course still doesn’t think it was too funny.

  •  Anonymous #86181

    Joe is in pretty serious shape. They found Ecoli and the abscess didn’t drain anywhere near what they expected. Doctors are scratching their heads.

    DD has been to the ER 4 times since Wednesday. She says she is doing some better today.

  •  Anonymous #86180

    Urologist is waiting until Monday. 5 kids and a catheter. UGH.

  •  Anonymous #86179

    Copperhead, hope everything goes well for Joe and your daughter.

  •  Anonymous #86178

    A good friend, Joe, had cat scan – they found an abscess in the muscle that is around the right kidney – they are suppose to drain it on Monday.

    My daughter has some kind of infection, bladder related. She got sent to the ER today. She is on a catheter and has to find a Urologist in the morning. She is a couple months pregnant. My DGKs think momma is going to die.

    Gigi, I hope things are starting to go better for you.

  •  Anonymous #86155

    I’m sitting in a chair too Gigi. Praying for all of you.

  •  Anonymous #86153

    Gigi, I’m so sorry. I’m sitting in one of those chairs.

  •  Anonymous #86152

    gigi… just take a long, calming breath, close your eyes and imagine all the chairs around you as full with every lady from this site and that you’re not alone in the process….we’re all thinking, praying and wishing for good, positive results.

    those were your own words a few years ago but I like them.

  •  Anonymous #86151

    I come to you asking for prayers for my entire family. Today we lost my oldest sister that had previously been hospitalized with copd/emphezema. she had been sliding downhill but we never imagined this, especially on top of my middle sister in hospice care. it’s a shock to the entire family in finding her this morning.

    Thanks so much

  •  Anonymous #86142

    Oh Gigi I’m so sorry. I’ll pray for all of you.

  •  Anonymous #86137

    Sorry Gigi. Definitely prayers to her and all your family.

  •  Anonymous #86136

    Ladies, I’d like to thank you for your prayers up to now for both of my ill sisters and i’d like to ask for continued prayers for one of them as well as her daughter, son and grandsons….and my mom, sisters and i.

    we had so hoped that things would improve and for a short while, they did but her dr told her there’s nothing more he can do and yesterday hospice had to be called in to arrange for things to make her comfortable. i pray they were called very early and things go well for her for a long time so she can spend more time with her grandsons who are so young and with her kids, too. She’s just so very young still and it’s just so sad to see her energy fade and her try to be so strong.

    please, please pray for us all….i thank you all

  •  Anonymous #85141

    We’re all fine in this neck of the woods. My Mom is going to be 88 the 7th of Feb. and my sister Teresa is going to fly in and surprize her. One of these days she is going to have a heart attack when we do that. Pray it’s not this time. :)

  •  Anonymous #85108

    Gigi I may not post it, but I’m praying…

  •  Anonymous #85107

    thankful no stent/bypass, was somewhat better than surgeon expected to see, now at home on oxygen and has home helper…extreme changes in life needed or future surgery will be inevitable.

    other sister had problems getting tests ran, machine malfunctions, reschedule went fine then problems getting in with specialists…have postponed to future date…..as if smooth plans make the wait any easier…unknown plans bring more stress for her! ?

    ^j^ thanks for the prayers ^j^

  •  Anonymous #85098

    ditto what Diane prayed

  •  Anonymous #85096

    LOL I think your whole family could use some prayers! Praying the cancer hasn’t grown, the the stent/bypass is not needed and your Mom, you and the rest of your family find some peace and breathing room. Amen!

  •  Anonymous #85090

    Your continued prayers are most appreciated.

    Sister 1 is due for cat scan Thurs, to see if cancer is progressed prior to appt w/specialist.

    sister 2 undergoing heart catheritization in morn to determine if stent/bypass needed.

    Would also like to add my mom in the prayers, as she is a walking mess!!

    Thanks ladies!

    Also asking that another sister be added. She was life flighted after unable to breathe on own…is being held in highly sedative state on ventilator as not reacting to treatment as should. May bring out in few days but unknown. Emphezema, COPD and pneumonia taking it’s toll on her lately as she is down to less than 100 lbs.

    This time of year even more than others, keep God first, Others second and Yourself, last. This gives us all JOY.

  •  Anonymous #84328

    my guess is jail space! they’d rather have less cluttered jails for the police to guard than cram criminals like sardines in a can. (which is what they not only need to force change but they deserve!)

    the justice system is definitely not geared towards the victims anymore.

    sorry to hear about your son, copper.

  •  Anonymous #84246

    This pic was a week ago – he has some kind of infection inside & up above that sore – last Friday Joy took him to Dr Stine and dr freaked when she found his sinus really messed up – something in there so referred him to the ENT. That night/early morning he couldn’t breathe so Joy said he needed to go to the hospital – Wilbur got in the car and tried to buckle up. The hospital ER looked at him & tried make him comfortable and told Joy to take him to the ENT appointment. Sunday he felt pretty good – he was talking plainly, running and playing. Monday he was back to sitting in a dark corner and holding his head and having nose bleeds and not talking or not talking clearly. This morning we took him to the ENT who looked up in his sinus area with a scope (I was keeping the Walter busy) Great Grandma had the 3 girls. (On the way in he saw all the hospital construction and just had to look at all the ‘Builders!!!’) ENT said there is an infection and sent Wilbur back to Dr Stine. Somehow we got an appointment for this afternoon. Dr Stine spent a bit of time with him. He has an infection (possibly one of the super infections – this is very serious if so) Dr. Stine was able to make a culture from a sore on his leg. (Yes this is in his whole system) You can see from the picture above that he can only breathe through his mouth. He is on some serious medication. Please pray for Wilbur. If you think he looks miserable in that pic you should see him now…. This afternoon I sat with the girls and Walter while we waited an hour and a half for his Dr visit. The girls barely moved. We stopped by the thrift store on the way home and found a Bob the Builder "laptop" for Wilbur – I think it helped his day a lot.

    Copperhead, sounds like one of those moments that will make you smile for years to come. Congrats.

  •  Anonymous #83029

    lots of heavy stuff to pray about. Good news! Wilbur (DGS) is breathing much better, he’s not throwing up or choking every time he eats and he’s gained a little weight and he is sleeping at night! He seems to have forgiven his momma and he sort of let me give him his first hair cut the other day. At first he held his hands over his head and yelled “it hurts” Then we gave him a hand mirror and kept giving him his cut off curls. He tried to put the cut curls on his head in the mirror. Very cute.

  •  Anonymous #83028

    Via facebook information, I’m pretty sure that momlvcntrt got a new liver so I’m adding her here for prayers. If I have her confused with someone else, I’m pretty sure the prayers will still help :)

    Diane,I am so sorry for your sister’s loss. I can’t even imagine her shock! Fifty five is young. It is always hard to lose a loved family member. But, when they have lived a long full life, of 80+ years, it seems easier to accept their death.

    However, sudden deaths, at any age, are hard. My cousin’s wife was seventy. She died suddenly last week. She was a very good friend of mine. I am still reeling from the shock. I can’t even imagine what my cousin is going through.

  •  Anonymous #82902

    yes, i understand diane. it will be many years of what-ifs, had i onlys, maybe ifs, second guesses.

    the thoughts of if she could have helped had she been there sooner, not left at all, so many things cross the mind.

    God placing her there may be the only thing that can bring some sense of comfort when trying to reason. my heart goes out to her.

    i’m so glad that you both have a tremendous network of support and each other!

  •  Anonymous #82900

    Thanks ladies, I come from a large tight knit family (I’m one of eleven) so there will be plenty of people to help. It was really hard to see my sister break down in front of her mother-in-law. The MIL had lost a daughter 10 years ago, and she still hasn’t gotten over that. My brother in law would be 55 next week so that’s going to be hard too. I wish my sister hadn’t been the one to find Don. She’ll keep that picture with her forever. Still in shock.

    it’s lovely when we have our family around us in their golden years, we are so blessed but so hard to know they need hospice care to be there for them. i have the utmost respect for those who can do hospice work….they’re angels!

    i know alittle about your sisters state of mind in finding her husband….my mother and i found my step-father in the same way one night and it is so devastating….my heart goes out to her. just be there for her and we’ll do our best to send out the prayers for you all! xoxo

  •  Anonymous #82886

    I am asking for prayers, a lot of them.

    1. My Mom just lost her last sister/sibling out of 12. Aunt Mildred was 95 and led a full life.

    2. My Aunt Mary (Dad’s side) has been in a nursing home for quite a few years and her kidneys have started failing, they have called in Hospice.

    3. My sister Sue got off work this morning and came home to find her husband dead on the couch. She is a basket case.

    Send prayers please. That’s my 3. No more!

  •  Anonymous #82674

    Wilbur is doing great. I got to the hospital just before we got him out of recovery. He was sucking on a Popsicle – his poor hand was cold. He ate 3 Popcicles and then drank some pop then he stole DDs french fries so she ordered some food for him. He ate every crumb and then some Teddy Grahams and was looking around for more food. We played a little bit of catch – someone gave him a couple plastic frogs… His breathing is so much better and he ate all that food with out puking. The last week he wouldn’t eat or he would eat then he puked. He ate and held it down. He seems to know it is going to be ok. He has been fighting with the IV thing and he doesn’t like the pain meds much but on the whole it was a good thing he got the tonsils out. I hadn’t held Walter so much before so that was a treat. He’s now 3 1/2 weeks old and doing fine. DD is very exhausted. Prayers appreciated!

  •  Anonymous #82673

    copperhead, as i read your request…i see it’s an hour past his surgery…i will still pray for fast healing and great health…along with a beautiful christmas for him (even though he may not quite feel up to it, he’ll feel better soon after)

    don’t forget POPSICLES, they do wonders for the sand paper throat!! :)

    yes leveta…thinking back to your news…i honestly was saddened reading that you were closing because each time you spoke of your shop, i could feel your passion.

    all this time, i’ve secretly been hoping that you’d re-open. i think you give your customers something special.

    i realize/remember your situation…it freed up time for you to focus on what you needed but i think sometimes when we get to do what we’re good at or made for…it makes us happy and excited then we’re even more valuable to others who need us.

    I love to go to shops (seasonal shops) that are only open for short periods of time. We have tossed around the idea of opening our old barnhouse from mid-October through mid-November every year. Then, have our barn sale to close the season out. Our county taxes will eat one alive if they have inventory at the end of the year. I would love to see pictures of your place. How do I get to them?

  •  Anonymous #82092

    Thanks She-ne. My little shop kept it’s self going. I only had it opened from 3rd week in sept to holloween. I only charged a fraction of what most people charged and still made enough to keep it going and replenish. Even though I havn’t been open for 2 yrs someone come looking the other day to see if I was open. I’ll have to try and post you a few pic’s of the last time it was open. I think you can go to search and type in “open house” and see the inside.

  •  Anonymous #82090

    Leveta, after many years, I have found that the success of a venture can not be solely judged on monetary gain. If it brings you and others happiness, you should do it. There is no medicine that can be compared with being surrounded by smiling faces. I will pray that God will lead you to the right decision.

  •  Anonymous #82010

    I’ve been praying for you both.

    Take a little time for yourself.

    Be sure to write down the complaints you have about the hospital. I had a horrid experience once. I just figured to let it go – I try not to grudge… My care giver had me send a letter to the hospital – she said you wouldn’t want someone else to have to go through what I went through – so wrote it down and let them know about it – not for you & your son but for the next person.

  •  Anonymous #82009

    thank you all…..my son spent a week in the hospital then they moved him to a nursing home…they say he will be there for at least a month..then 3 more (at least) of physical therapy….this is going to be a long long road..

    so far his mood is positive, but alas..he is still on extensive pain meds…so who knows how he will be when they start to ween (sp?) him from them….i am just praying constantly that he gets through it in one piece..

    they fixed the eye..yeah..and it will be fine, but he also has some injury to his knee that they are still working on…

    pittsburgh is supposed to have some of the best hospitals in the country…and i’m sure we do..but this was not a good experience….and i am not at all happy with a lot of what went on..but that’s a story for another day…

    i never thought i would say this..but..i am so tired of talking..ahah….i am a big talker…but i’m worn out…

    Leveta, what you had to do is called “tough love”. Heart wrenching decisions are never easy. It appears that God has intervened.

    Even though it seems like a long time until Sunday, it is just a couple of days.I hate to hear that they will have to be in such heat, with no AC. I don’t know your daughter, but her allowing them to suffer this kind of heat speaks volumes about the children being under her watch. It appears you made the only decision possible.

    Keep the faith and soon, satan will move on.

  •  Anonymous #81527

    Hugs my daughter absolutly hates us right now. She in no way wants us to have anything to do with them for going against her. This is one of the reasons we had to do what we did.She has put them in a bad situation all the way around. All I can do right now is trust God to take care of them and get them over here sunday night.I sure was hopeing their dad would have gotten them yesterday. Believe me satan is rearing his ulgy head right now in our family. But I will never back down on what we had to do…

    She was diagnosed on April 11 with lung cancer and on April 15 with three tumors in her brain. She didn’t make it three months.

    He’s really having a rough time and I’m grieving right along with him.

    Hope all of you that have sick ones are seeing some progress, or at least finding some peace in what is going on with them.

    Leveta, Have you ever read ‘The Shack’? Some people are all bent out of shape and think it is awful – maybe so. Others find a good explanation of grace and find much healing. Try not to take the characters too seriously. The story has a lot of unexpected twists & turns. It was hard to get past the first 3 chapters. My brother committed suicide about 10 years ago. My dad pretty much withdrew from all of us until I gave him that book and he read it – he must have bought 20 copies.

    I need your prayers!!!!!!! Through months of turmoil of watching our daughter go down hill from getting mixed up with the wrong person and what she has put our grandkids through because of him and her selfishness we have decide to back her ex husband for custody of the babies. She will still get them on weekends ect. She got her papers yesterday and is livid to say the least. This man has her were he wants her and is feeding her the lies of satan. Monday we go to court. Please dear ladies PRAY that God gives us favor with all this. I believe with all my heart that God has directed this path. But this is a very real spirital warfare. I have seen all to many times that judges leave the kids in the worst situations and know what can happen to them after. Yes I’m scared, I’d be lying if I said different. But I KNOW God has lead this way…Thank You all…

    praying for both of you. Kim

    I got down on my knees today,

    And said a prayer for you,

    For you are always in my heart,

    And I often think of you,

    I asked the Lord to send his angels,

    To protect my dearest friend,

    I prayed that all the joy and happiness,

    You have will never end,

    I asked the Lord to comfort you,

    When you are feeling blue,

    And when you have a tear,

    He’ll wipe away that too,

    I asked the Lord to bless our friendship,

    So our ways will never part,

    For true friends always stick together,

    For we’re in each others hearts.

    Good news up until this point with my DSIL. She’s finished one round of chemo and one round of radiation (or will tomorrow). She has been a little bit sick at her stomach a time or two but nothing major at all.

    Hair started coming out in wads over the weekend so now she and my brother have matching shaved heads! LOL

    Please continue your prayers for them both. I am so hoping that the treatments shrink these lung and brain tumors in her. I love her so much and my brother loves her even more!

    Thanks everybody! Good thoughts going out to you and to yours.

    hugs and prayers to you all….I have a little sign that says “God is more concerned with our character than our comfort.” I am always amazed how people deal with these things with such grace.

    It humbles me.

  •  Anonymous #79911

    wow… I am thinking and praying of both your families, and everyone on here. One of my employees just lost his brother overseas and the outpouring of support and patriotic love was truly amazing to witness in Iowa. Moments like these are when reality slaps you upside the head and makes you so thankful and grateful for the moments we have and the loved ones we are surround with, when we think our problems are too hard to overcome, there is always someone out there with more on their plate.

    Big hugs and prayers to you all.

    if only to give you some peace of mind, rose…..

    when gram found out she had pancreatic and the time could be unpredictable of 3 days/3 wks/3 mos/3 yr and so on…..she turned to me and said in the most calm, pleasant voice….i am ok with it, now that i know “what it is” i am dealing with.

    when they gave it a name and confirmed why she had pain…it turned a corner for her.

    her illness/passing was quick…she left this world in such a graceful, dignified way just as she lived her life. even tho she knew it may not be long….she kept her long term plans in sight and talked of future ideas-events as if she would be there for them and us…and that was always her way.

    it also gave me a peace of mind in her telling me that…it was like her gift to me….she was sad at leaving yet excited to where she was eventually going….heaven….so, that was her peace of mind.

    sending hugs to you both XXXXX i hope my grams words comfort you as well.

    As my prayers are with all of you. We (my Dh and I and my DB) took her today for her second chemo treatment. She has her third one tomorrow and also a bone scan. I am terrified that it has also spread to the bone and I think that she is, too.

    I get such a calm, resigned feeling from her that it scares me so bad. My brother went to sleep sitting on the couch in the waiting room today and I just sat and rubbed his back. Bless his heart, he’s 66, but everybody needs some babying sometime, don’t they and he is my big brother so he gets it when he needs it! (And sometimes when he doesn’t! LOL) He is really just wearing himself out worrying about her, not sleeping, etc.

  •  Anonymous #79858

    Well, my family has had another blow. My sister-in-law (my brother’s wife) was diagnosed April 11 with lung cancer and then four days later they told her that she had four spots on her brain.

    I’ve been depending emotionally so much on my brother since our mom died in December and now I’m holding him up! My SIL is calm and ready to start treatments today. My brother is basically a fruitcake most of the time and I’m trying to keep his spirits (and health!) up so that we can all take care of her.

    Prayers needed, still again. Maybe it’s my age (61) but the last year or so have been about the toughest I’ve ever lived through, except for losing my dad.

    Hope everybody’s sick ones are on the mend and hope that the ones who passed away are all in Heaven enjoying eternal peace.

    Tomorrow I will be taking my Mom to my Uncle Bobbies funeral. He was 82 He had scarlet fever when he was young, and it affected his brain. He was always so much fun and loved to roller skate. We will be laughing thinking of him roller skating across Heaven.

    Please add my family to your prayers. My Mama passed away Wednesday. She spent 23 days in the hospital. We brought her home under Hospice care on Tuesday afternoon. Before noon on Wednesday she had gone to Heaven and was reunited with my Daddy.

    Just asking that you keep my gram in thought and prayer. told us at thanksgiving had pancreatic cancer and now in the nursing home for past several days very weak and unable to eat or pass anything.

    she’s such a beautiful lady….heart and soul…and i hate seeing her in such pain. she’s away from family….first time in over 80 years….but didn’t want to come home for just the day of christmas. (i’m sure she thought it would be best for all of us not herself….miss her terribly already!!)

    in less than 10 minutes she went from calling me by name to that of my daughter….and she told me it was her time to go…i know

    God will take her when it’s his time but i don’t want to see her go.

    This prayer helps me make it thru the days that are so rough

    The Serenity Prayer

    God grant me the serenity

    to accept the things I cannot change;

    courage to change the things I can;

    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Living one day at a time;

    Enjoying one moment at a time;

    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

    Taking, as He did, this sinful world

    as it is, not as I would have it;

    Trusting that He will make all things right

    if I surrender to His Will;

    That I may be reasonably happy in this life

    and supremely happy with Him

    Forever in the next.

    Amen.

    –Reinhold Niebuhr

  •  Anonymous #77839

    Monday, we have to hire an attorney and get guardianship of her – this will be at our expense. BUT we aren’t happy with the care she has had from the other side of the family so we feel we have to do it. THEY think WE are out for her money. After all the attorney fees and nursing home costs I wonder what money they think we are out to get??? If she is under guardianship the courts over see all her finances. She doesn’t have THAT much money to get their undies tied in a knot. They had her in an apartment that was beyond her means. No body was going with her to the doctor. She wasn’t eating right. She was going on a city bus and getting lost. etc. shesh. Part of me hopes they do get stuck with dealing with the judge and all that… DH has lost the last 3 weeks of work having to deal with her or her stuff or some doctor or some stupid relative or another. It is very frustrating.

    just a thought… I’m thinking if a person can pray the Lord’s prayer and mean it one might be able to stay absolutely SANE. Say it and then break it down bit by bit in one’s own mind. There is so much to think about in that little prayer…. think HARD life is short.

    MIL is still in the psych hospital – she is eating and doing ok – they did figure out she doesn’t have Alzheimer – she was mis-diagnosed in Cincinnati. They have her on better meds. We are hoping we have a good Christmas with her but won’t know for a while yet. DH is not as stressed out – the other side of the family is honkin’ mad at us for “kidnapping” grandma – threatening lawsuits, etc.

    We found out she has been in the ER multiple times and always checks herself out. DH got power of attorney over her medical and kept her in there – I do hope she will see things differently when she gets out – right now she has disowned everybody who cares for her. DH is doing pretty good this morning. He has a lot to do and all of it is hard. We have to get her things and stash them some place -too bad she doesn’t have any good junk… Our tastes clash.

    MIL is on her way to a senior psych ward in Muncie. She has made every bad decision in the book in the last 3 days. My DH is exhausted. He took her to an assisted living place hoping she would find a place to live. When he got her there, she pitched a royal fit and started slugging everybody. She hasn’t eaten in 24 hours and she told the hospital nobody has fed her in a week. My DD stood there and told them everything that went in her mouth for the past 2 weeks. Anyway DH and DD are on their way to the psych ward to give them the correct info. MIL is delusional, paranoid and depressed and that is according to the nurse. Also pray for my grand kids – they were there for the whole show.

    OVERWHELMED

    this is the lady that has tried to kill me in the past… she still hates me but is tolerant.

    she is like trying to deal with a very stubborn spoiled rotten 6 year old

    We brought her up here with a place she could stay – she spent one night with my mom and dad and then went to the hotel closest to our house – it is probably a homeless shelter in reality….

    She is eating now

    We got some ID for her but are waiting on more paper work from SS and her retirement verification and she wants it NOW.

    She also wants to sue everybody she knows – that’s involved.

    She is DEMANDING that I buy a new car (with her money)

    My hubby and I had already just decided to keep the old thing running for another year and save up cash to buy another car – I hope he will stick to it. She doesn’t like my car because it says Honda – (not made by the UAW) – folks that is one reason I own the thing…

    I keep telling my DH we brought her up her to see to her COMFORT her HAPPINESS is her own option.

  •  Anonymous #77649

    Thanks for your prayers. Here is the up date:

    MIL is now at my 85 year old mom and dad’s house. Pass the pop corn…. roll your eyes – as I see it… This is a case of south meets north…

    My daughter managed to get residency papers from the retirement home and then found MIL’s birth certificate and got new ID! So if we are quick tomorrow we can get her bank account number switched. I hope so anyway – maybe she will have some money in case she needs nursing care later on. I think we can get things squared away here but my next concern is at what point will MIL get mad at us and turn on us. She does it all the time. She is a character. God love her. I should name a sewing machine after her. I just have to think which one.

  •  Anonymous #77645

    Pray for us right now – a Great Grand daughter has stolen her ID, given her some sort of hallucinating drug and trying to get her declared mentally ill. My DH and DD are trying to get her out of there. They did manage to get her birth certificate and marriage license so got a state ID card. They are on the way to an attorney right now to see what can be done. This is going to be very rough for a while. Nothing like a good old fashioned family feud is there?

    I sort of feel like it a pass the pop corn moment – well maybe a cross between pass the pop corn and pass the hankie. Poor lady. She has not always made the best choices and is having to ‘eat a lot of crow’ right now.

  •  Anonymous #77626

    I’m praying for all of you. You know at my Bible Study quite a few years ago, one member talked about life being difficult and how she just stopped and prayed, “Bless me.” She felt such peace. Now, I know that sounds so basic, but I realized then how much we pray for others, for situations, but how often we forget to ask Him to bless ourselves. When I remember, it’s so beautiful. It is certainly NOT a selfish prayer. You must be blessed and feel His love in order to care for all those who need you and to handle all the difficult situations. So, remember to ask Him. He will.

    you all are the best – I’m up trying to swallow some tea to help me breathe – I’m praying for your 14 sick friends from your turkey dinner – won’t that be a fond memory in a few years – maybe get you out of a job next year… LOL life some times sucks – I have to remember to read Isaiah 40 and 41 – 20 years ago it pulled me out of a clinical depression without drugs – just put my name in there for all the right places – I had to read it every day for year or two & pray to find a bit of joy each day – why is it fear and doubting leads to depression??? Maybe that is my problem now – circumstances come and go but how I respond is my problem isn’t it? My happiness is not dependent on circumstances.

    I think I better memorize Isaiah 40 & 41 – MIL is for sure moving up here… in a couple days…

    I like this one “When you are up to you neck in alligators try to remember your mission was to drain the swamp…”

    Or how about “If you don’t like the way the wind blows adjust your sails”

    Well, hopefully the tea will help break up the gunk in my head so I can sleep – hope I don’t wet the bed… LOL

    Don’t you wish we all lived in the same town so there could be a real shoulder to cry on. Reading the prayer requests makes me realize how far apart we are. Copperhead, I wish I could give you a big hug and help move MIL. Mom, your right. It’s life. We all do the best we can to muddle through and pray that God Almighty will lighten the load once in awhile. One day at a time.

    i know it can be really hard. and i will have you in my prayers but you know…somehow everything always seems to work out. i guess that what we refer to as ‘life’. at least that is the conclusion i have come up with. hope everything works out for you

  •  Anonymous #77613

    I suppose there should be room for some more prayer requests on here. My 90 year old MIL somehow got her stove on fire. She has been in an apartment in Cincinnati which is about 100 miles or so from here. We have batted back and forth what to do with her since FIL passed away in May. She has been unwilling to come up here until now. NOW she is begging to come. We want to do it – it will be rough. I know I joke about it being my worst night mare – and I know it might just be but we do need to do the right thing. There is a brand new senior apartment house just opened a month or so in sight of my house. We know she can’t stay here – WAY too many steps – this house is a typical tri-level from the 70s. It is well on the way to being up dated but not in any condition to sell if the economy would support that… (like how do you spell construction site?) DD says get her the apartment and move in with her if necessary… what ever…

    Then at the same time my mid 80 year old parents aren’t doing so hot either. Mom has two speeds – slow and slower and she’s slowed some more. It is very difficult to watch and of course she doesn’t want any help. I’m working two part time jobs to make ends meet. DH works as a handyman – my Dad has rental houses and he can’t do the work any more. BUT he doesn’t pay much and he is more ADD and crazy than I am. He’s offended my DD to tears almost daily she helps collect rent – growing up a girl between two boys made her like that… She collects rent and she’s good at it. Lately my DH wants to look for a job at Home Depot or Lowe’s – anywhere but for my Dad…. I’m thinking he is worried about Mom but won’t admit anything. There’s other stuff buy you all get the idea.

    God help me keep what marbles I have left.

    Kudz, I am so sorry for all the so called problems you have had.. but you know what I walked out of a marriage in 1976 and have never looked back.. my children are all fine I raised them by myself.. and I am happy.. I have never remarried. my choice.. but not sorry, I have been very happy.. I have 5 wonderful children and 5 wonderful living grandkids and one sweet one in heaven with God.. I have worked hard all my life and my children have picked up on that and all my children are hard workers too.. sometimes I wonder if I should have remarried to give the children a father.. but the more I thought about it.. if I was not happy with the man, then the children would suffer and I love my children to much to ever put them thru that.. my ex husband was a good father just he was a drunk.and I could not handle the drinking.. I have never said a bad word about the children’s father.. so they still love him even tho he has passed away now.. I just felt it was my job to take care of my kids and I have to say.. I am happy.. Ihope you find happiness and I am sure you will with that new grandbaby..if ever you feel you need to just chat.. I am here for you..

    Oh dear Kudzu! My motto is “you do what you have to do”. You must have been on a real rollercoaster to have so much pain and yet so much joy at one time. Sometimes the best we can do is just to get up out of bed in the morning, go thru the routine and manage to go to sleep at night. Sister, I feel for you. Diane :)

    Copper,

    It seems that childhood diseases are making a comeback. At twenty-one, I had a full-blown case of the measles. It seems I had missed a booster shot somewhere along the line. I was never so sick in my life. I didn’t even see a doctor. I just laid in bed for over a week…swollen, feverish and aching. Later, my parents discovered how dangerous my condition was…but,by then, I had fully recovered.

    I am praying the same full recovery for your grandson.

On the day of surgery they couldn’t locate the spot via ultrasound (dense tissue too!) so I went home and haven’t had a problem since. I know these can be scarry–my sister’s and even my mother had the same thing happen (hereditary??). Good luck and we’ll be thinking of you.

    Well ladies, I am now asking for prayers for me. I found a lump in my left breast in Oct., had the mamogram, had the ultrasound, and now they want to do a biopsy. Normally I wouldn’t think anything about it because I’m pretty darn healthy, never smoked, didn’t take birth control pills more than a couple of years (that’s why the kids are so close together) but….. after the house burnt down (always happens to someone else), our friend falls off the roof and broke both his feet, (he’s lucky to be alive), and I had my first major car accident (not hurt too bad but totaled the car), well I’m hoping that that is my 3 things. I go in this Thursday the 25th. So just think about me and say a little prayer around 9:30 eastern time if you think of it. :) Thanks Diane

    Regarding Huggybear’s post above about Prayer request for Gary and Cindy Hogman. Thank you for your sincere concern Huggy but….

    I have checked this story out on snopes.com and it is one of those e-mail’s that has gotten a life of it’s own. It originated from 2001 and the woman in question is now in remission.

    I also ask that this forum be used for prayers for yourself and anyone you actually know.

    We all get the emails asking for prayers and many times these are either email urban legends or are very old and are still traveling through cyberspace.

    Please check out all stories like this on the urban legend web page http://www.snopes.com.

    *Subject:* Prayer Request

    Prayer request for Gary and Cindy Hogman by way of Faith Presbyterian Church.

    Gary is serving in Iraq while his young wife is fighting cancer here. See his Request below.

    From: Bobby S. Briggs, MSgt, USAF

    823 ESFS/SFOC

    Flight Sergeant

    BAGHDAD AB, IRAQ

    My name is Gary Hogman. Some of you receiving this know me, some do not.

    My wife, Cindy, is 32 years old and has just been diagnosed with stage 4 Cervical cancer. Her chances for survival are very slim. She was pregnant with our second child and had miscarried recently at 3 Months; and now we

    know why.

    This is a request for you to forward this e-mail to everyone you know asking for prayer.. The more people that pray for her to be healed, the better. Pray and forward. It only takes a second to hit ‘forward.’

    Please do it and don’t delete this. Your prayer can, and perhaps will, save her life. Please pray and ask everyone you know to pray for the HEALING of CINDY HOGMAN And the removal of all cancer from her body, so she may enjoy all that life has to offer, and to continue to be the wonderful mother to our 5-year-old son Michael..

    The power of Prayer is unsurpassed. I want the whole world to have her in their prayers the next few weeks. God will hear our cry.

    Please do not be offended by my plea. This is only a request for your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this and helping with our request for healing! No words can express the power we have when we each do a little to come together.

    Regards, Cindy’s husband –

    Gary

    Thank you, and please send it to the far reaches of our world!

    you know, there was a time when it was hard for me to look at the memory boards…so, i know it was a daunting task for the family to pick thru the photos for it. but all that changed when my husbands step gramp and a sisters male friend passed in recent years. i suddenly saw the comfort those pictures brought, moreso than sadness.

    some silly ones, made me see the humor in the person that may have been forgotten.

    some showed a side of the person maybe we never got to see/know.

    some showed the love they had for family….friends….neighbors but the image that was most present in my mind is that in those pictures you saw that “they lived their lives, abundantly in the presence of those they love”

    thinking of you all as we enter into the holiday seasons…wishing you comfort, peace, joy, care in your travels and that you may be watched over.

  •  Anonymous #71619

    Sue, I just think that when we see folks almost everyday.. we do not notice the changes that are made daily… it is like a child growing up.. when you have the child in your household each day you do not notice how tall or how pretty , handsome, etc. they are getting until a family or friend says.. oh my how they have grown, or how old they have gotten.. I notice it with my own grandkids.. and like my sons who do not live with me and I do not see everyday or my daughters.. when you see them like maybe once a month or so.. you notice things.. like maybe how their hair is staring to turn grey.. and yet the son that lives with me I do not notice how grey his hair is getting.. of course I say his is getting grey because Of me..LOL

    Best wishes and prayers for your family coming in from out of town.. and prayers for all of your family..

  •  Anonymous #71616

    Thank you all for the kind words and prayers. I made it here yesterday afternoon safe and sound. I found that my Father-in-Law had a peaceful passing and our family is all doing well. It will be a long week with the visitation on Friday and the funeral on Saturday. Greta and Hugs – those are beautiful scriptures and poems and I appreciate seeing them both again. God has granted us serenity today.

    I just completed selecting photos for the two “Memory Boards” that will be at the funeral home. It was fun-yet sombering looking through all of the photo albums. One thing my Mother-in-Law and I just discovered was that Bert looked ill many years ago and we never even realized until looking through the albums tonight. Sometimes we think we are so observant and know our family members well. I just learned that we aren’t always so observant or we may have know he was ill a long time ago – not that it could have changed anything.

    We have four family members flying from Florida, Arizona and California this week – if you wouldn’t mind a thought or two for their safe travel. Thank you all again.

    Land. Beyond the gates of pearl I’ve walked on the golden streets.

    I’ve touched the walls of jasper and dipped my foot in the

    Crystal sea. The beauty is beyond words and nothing could

    Compare, I’ve even seen your mansion and someday

    I’ll meet you there. Let Jesus be your guide because

    His Word will show you the way! So please don’t

    Cry because we will meet again someday.

    I read this somewhere and just thought it was a comfort to those who have lost love ones..

    If You Could See Me Now

    If you could see me now you wouldn’t shed a tear.

    Though you may not understand why I’m no longer there.

    Remember my spirit that is the real me because I’m still very

    Much alive, I’ve just been set free, Oh, if you could only see!

    Could I ask for all of the comforting prayers that you all can muster up? My Father-in-Law just passed away and I’ll be making a 2+ hour drive to be with my husband and the family. I’ll need travel prayers too, thank you.

    maggie, i got chill bumps reading your request, God bless and comfort her………………………..and the entire family.

    not meaning to be insensitive or anything…but it always amazes me how God uses others to teach us that what we may think is overwhelming in our life is little to nothing in comparison to anothers…there are always people better off and worse off than we and that no matter where you are along that path, “we all need prayer to get us thru”

    a ton of hugs and fleet of angels coming your way X ^j^ X ^j^ X ^j^

    Maggie, I’m “shooting up some prayers” right now for Kathy. I’m sorry that it has all returned and started the grief all over again.

    Please pray for my daughter Kathy! She is a breast cancer survivor, but has found out that cancer has returned & attacked her body. It was found on her liver, in her bones & possibly her brain. She will have an MRI on her head to see if the spots found there are tumors. Both of her femurs are fragmented & she is in so much pain that she can hardly walk! Prayer is powerful!!!!!!
