Title: Good thoughts and prayers needed.
Post by: Merrique on September 19, 2005, 06:38:02 AM
Hi All,

I could really use some good thoughts and prayers right now.My Mom is in hospital and she's not doing too good.

We found out friday that one of the arteries to her heart is 99% blocked.They did an angioplasty to open her artery up and inserted a shunt.We are hoping that does the trick and she doesn't have to have open heart surgery.

After the angioplasty was done she had some complications.She has bleed out of her artery in her leg where they entered her to do the procedure.This has happened three times in 2 days and she almost bleed to death.She had to go into emergency surgery yesterday to stop the bleeding.She's still very week as she's lost a lot of blood.We are just hoping nothing else happens and she doesn't takes a turn for the worse.

Merrique, please know that your Mum - indeed your whole family - will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I don't know if it willl be any comfort to you, but my granddad, who is 78, was in hospital earlier this year with one of his arteries completely blocked and the other half blocked. He had the same op your Mum had and now he is 100% Ok and back to his old self.

I hope your Mum will do just as well.  :)

Thank you all for your thoughts,well wishes and prayers.They really mean a lot to me.

My Mom is doing a bit better today.She had to have 2 blood transfusions yesterday and two today to replace the blood she lost.She's still really weak from the blood loss and very sore from where they were pressing on the artery in her leg to stop the bleeding.Aside from that she is doing better.

Again,thank you all so much.

Love,
Kat

Hello everyone,

Thank you all for the prayers and kind words. My father isn't doing very well right now. His cholesterol is to the roof, he has to go to the ER all the time because his potassium levels are way too high, something is up with his heart but we don't know what yet (goes to the doctor tomorrow), and his left elbow has been swollen and none of the doctors are doing anything about it. It looks as if it has gone to the bone and I'm very afraid of what will happen if they don't do anything about it soon.  :'(

I don't want to add to the sadness any, but I too need some prayers. My 19 year old and 20 year old cousins, who are like a brother and sister to me, are in critical condition in the hospital right now. They were hit by a drunk driver after driving home from my 21st birthday party at 1:00 this morning.

Any prayers for my aunt, uncle, Jenn and Jarrett(my cousins), along with the rest of my family would be greatly appreciated.

My mother-in-law has been brought home for the last time. Her brave fight against ovarian cancer has not been won. She went into the emergency room two day ago, where it is found that the cancer has spread, and nothing else can be done. We don't know how much time she has left, only that her moments be without suffering. We ask for prayers on her behalf, and thank you for your kindness in thinking of her. From our hearts to yours, thank you. God Bless.

Dear Tania, my thoughts are with you and yours. Ovarian cancer is ghastly, my mother died from it 3 days before my hubby and i were married after only being diagnosed several months before. My heart goes out to you.

Post by: Tania+ on January 11, 2007, 04:08:00 PM
Dear Kimberly,

I'm so sorry that your dear mom was lost to this dreaded disease. I don't think there is anyway one can really prepare oneself to understanding why a precious life is taken because of cancer. I have seen my mother-in-law and many other fine lives working to defeat it, but for most it has been a very difficult and losing fight. Although her physicians did not tell her that they had also found a new tumor, and that the cancer has spread, I think she knew and had somehow prepared herself, because my husband says she now speaks about her death soon enough. I have not been unfortunately been able to visit her, but hope to tomorrow or this weekend.

Thank you my friend Kimberly for your kind thoughts. I shall share your thoughts with my husband and other members of the family. Your thoughts and prayers indeed help most sincerely at times such as this. God Bless !

I just received news from my mother that my grandfather has suffered a massive stroke. I don't really know too much more--I'm waiting for news--but any good thoughts or prayers would be much appreciated, not just for my grandfather but also my grandmother. This happened while they were on vacation in Florida and so no family is with her--though that should soon change as my Mom (and probably her siblings) are planning on going down. My grandfather and I have always been particular close so the news is particularly distressing.

Dear Grandduchessella,

Thanks so much for your good thoughts.

I had talked to my Mom (now down in Florida, along with her sister and brother) and he was stable. There's bleeding on the brain and some swelling though and they're waiting for some news from the neurologist. A complicating problem is that he'd had a narrowing of the arteries which put him at risk for a stroke but this was actually a stroke resulting from bleeding (he has a complicated medical and medicinal history which complicates everything and is very confusing). So, he's still at risk from the other kind of stroke and that could be exacerbated by the steps needed to correct the current problem. Right now it's a wait-and-see situation.

It's additionally distressing coming on the heels of Bob's Nana dying a few days before Christmas--it's just a sucker-punch feeling.  :(

Please pray for my grandfather. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and went through surgery this week. He was doing well until yesterday morning. When the doctor asked him to cough, his laceration opened up and a blood clot was realeased into his body. He is now in surgery to find it.  :-[

Holly,

Your Grandfather is in my prayers. I will pray for him and for the rest of your family, as I know this must be a very hard time for you all. I recently lost a very close and dear friend of mine, who was 20, to Leukemia.
God Bless you and your family

Dear Holly,
I'm so sorry. I hope your Grandfather will get better soon, and I'll pray for him and your family.
And I'd like to ask for some prayer, 'cause my Grandfather is in hospital and as doctors said that only miracle can save him, so prayers and good thoughts will be very appreciate.
God bless & keep you Holly and your all family,

I wish you all the best, my mum has died of cancer ten years ago (it was another kind than your mother-in law┬┤s) and it was hard to me, because I was only fifteen there and she 46, but in the moment she died I was in church, and we had a very religious lady helping her through the night of the day she died, and I think in the end it was good to her that she did not have to suffer anymore... But for me there is always the problem that I am afraid of dying from cancer as well, because I am not always a healthy person as well and have some problems.

Dear Merrique,
I am sure your mother will recover soon and will be on her feet again. I know how helpless you must be feeling but it may comfort you to know that your mother is in our prayers. Please keep us posted.

My Mother called today and the decision has been made, based on recent setbacks, to take my grandfather off life-support since he seems to just be suffering right now. He'll be taken to a hospice and it will be a matter of days after that before he passes.

Thank you all for your good wishes and prayers and know they were much appreciated by all.

Merrique, I pray for your mother and that she will be back up soon.
 Grandduchessella, I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather! I will keep him in my prayers and that God will bless you and your family. It's always terrible for a family passing.  :(
 Holly, I also pray for your grandfather. My grandfather also had cancer. My your grandpa have the strength to defeat it.
 Hugs and many prayers and blessings to all of you.
   My first intention is almost silly. I have been going through a very hard time trying to figure out what my true religion should be- I am leaning towards Islam despite being raised Catholic and attending my 8th grade year at a Catholic school, and I am afraid of what my parents will say if they find out (my father is very biased about Muslims; my mother is a very devout Catholic). I've been praying for guidance.
    I also ask that you pray for my Uncle Joe, who is mildly mentally retarded and might have cancer.

Sasha,

If your parents love you, they'll understand your choice. And besides, you have that sweet little puppy to help you! Just explain to your parents why you wish to be Muslim and they'll either try to convince you otherwise or accept it. But stand your ground. Be strong. :)

And my prayers are indeed for your uncle.

I've read this thread and I'm awfully sorry to read such a sad news. I know too well what is to suffer such a big loss, as my mother died two months ago. I know that the pain is unbearable and I wish with all my heart that this suffering never reachs not even a single member of this forum.

My thoughts and prayers are devoted to you all. My best wishes and my sincere hope that a sure recovery will come, too. God -or Buddah, Allah or however anyone may call Him- won't let us down, don't doubt it.
