I just received the following message from a dear college friend. Her Mom has been diagnosed with uterine cancer, and it's worse than they originally feared. So if you could please remember her in your prayers, I know they'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much!! :-)

Just wanted to give you an update. We went to see the Gyn/Oncologist on Wednesday, and we weren't as lucky as we thought. Mom's gonna need chemo. The particular type of uterine cancer she has is a stinker. The cancer cells are very microscopic, and if even one gets left behind the cancer will come back....not may, WILL. They are gonna do the surgery in Duluth at St. Mary's. She's scheduled for some time on Wednesday, March 4th. We won't know what time exactly until Tuesday. I'll try to keep you posted.

The car that you see on the far right, that caused the accident, is a good friend of mine from work. According to what I've heard here (Ken talked to her boss) when the accident occurred her car burst into flames. The car and everything in it was destroyed. From what Ken tells me, she has no insurance. And from what she's told me in the past, she is the only source of income, as her husband hasn't been able to find work.

My heart aches for her. If you're so inclined to lengthen your prayer list, please include her. Thanks!!

Subject:Having a hard time

Time:12:27 am.
I haven't posted in quite some time. Life has thrown me a major curve and I am struggling just to get through each day. Three weeks ago, I fell down the stair carrying a laundry basket. I miscarried my little boy; we named him Luke. I ended up getting an infection after the still birth and have been in and out of the hospital. It has been very stressful, lonely and depressing. My husband and daughter (and my extended family and friends) have been extremely loving and supportive but I am still struggling to get through each day. I have been praying a lot. Anyway, prayers would be appreciated if anyone reads this.

Today's not going to be an easy day. I just talked to a resident who lives on 1st floor. Miss Pauline, quite possibly my favorite resident, has had a massive stroke. This happened either yesterday, or first thing this morning. She's the one that I came to Walker for over Christmastime, to watch her light the advent candles. She's the one I made a necklace for, after she told me how pretty mine was. She's also the one that invited me into her room to look at all the old pictures on her walls. I talked to a nurse on the floor and she thinks it was this morning before her shift started. I saw an ambulance outside this morning and didn't think much of it. From what I've heard, they do not think she's going to survive.

Please, please say a prayer for her. Please pray that God gives her just a little more time. I don't know if this breaks confidentiality code here or not, but I was able to find out what hospital she's at. Even though Bruno will be with Ken when he picks me up today, I may see if it's possible to stop there on the way home just to say hello. I adore her, and I can't bear to think of God taking her just yet. He knows what is best, I know. But it doesn't make this any easier. This is part of the job and I knew it was coming eventually, but it doesn't suck any less when you're prepared for it.

I have just been asked for prayers for a co-worker of mine. She just got a call from her Mother, and has learned that her Aunt is missing. She was supposed to go to a doctor's appointment yesterday and never showed up. They don't have any answers at this point, and her Mom will be flying down to Texas (where her Aunt lives) today or tomorrow. The Aunt is very healthy, has no memory issues to speak of, so it wasn't because she got confused and took off. Please ask God to watch over her, wherever she is, and guide her safely home to her family.

Thanks!! :-) Oh, and my Dad made it through his surgery very successfully, and is already back to work today. Thanks for all the kind thoughts for him! :-)

Please say a prayer for my Daddy. Got a call from up north yesterday, and he is in the hospital. He's apparently been having awful stomach pain, but being the stoic guy he is, refused to go to the doctor (sigh...). So, Mom made him go yesterday after a particularily bad bout of it, and my sister Carrie MADE them go to St. Luke's in Duluth (it's the hospital she works in, and they have GI specialists there. Plus, Care works on the GI floor). They did a bunch of testing on him last night, and determined that he has a BIG kidney stone. And, the attacks he's had have caused the kidney to become very inflamed. They kept him overnight last night, for obvservation, to see if he'd pass it on his own. (highly unlikely, I'd say) If he does not pass it, they will do surgery today to remove it.

I am justafiably worried about him. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks! :-)

How horrible what happened today at Virginia Tech; can you imagine how the families must be feeling. Extra prayers today for all involved. Let's hope there aren't any copycats out there.

Subject:Bull is home
Posted by:tatiannasmommy.
Time:5:47 pm.
Mood: relieved.
Thank you for the prayers and thoughts. Bull was found today about 1 mile from our home by a very nice couple out walking their dog this morning. They called me from the number on her collar, but I was out hanging up signs. I called when I got home and went to pick her up. She looked very ragged and like she had been in a fight or something. I took her right to the vet and everything is fine; I was told to bring her home and pamper her. We are definately thinking about getting her chipped and Tatti will no longer be allowed to let her out (for the time being), as she doesn't always remember to check the gate. I need a nice relaxing drink tonight after the day I have had. These precious animals are so wonderful; I can't imagine how someone would think to harm them (like has been in the news lately). Don't you sometimes wish you could talk to your animals to find out what goes through their minds when they leave home and what happened while they were gone?

Subject:Need prayers for Bull
Posted by:tatiannasmommy.
Time:10:01 am.
I need thoughts and prayers this morning. Last night my daughter let our dog out in the back yard and apparently the gate had been left open. We haven't seen her since 7:30 last night. This happened about 4 years ago and she came back within an hour or so, but it is now over 14 hours later and Bull hasn't returned. I am frantic. I am making up some flyers to hang and will go around the neighborhood to hang them. Please pray that she returns.

Couple of reasons to please ask for prayers:

1. I learned over the weekend that a family member of mine is in the process of divorce. I really cannot diclose who, because I've been politely asked not to. It's not my sister. I not only knew nothing of this, but also wasn't even aware that there were problems in the marriage. They have been married around 20 years too, and kids are involved. It's heartbreaking. Please say a prayer that this process will go as smoothly as possible, and that God will help heal all the hurt that has occurred.

2. A Walker volunteer just stopped by the window (she's elderly too). She wanted to know if a check she wrote would have cleared the bank by now, and it should have. Reason she asked was because over the weekend her home was robbed! I feel so sorry for her, and asked if she was okay. She wasn't home at the time, so yes, she's fine. But she said lots of personal stuff was stolen, including some of her PIN numbers. Poor dear is so shook up. I told her I hope that things get back to normal as soon as possible, and she said she hopes so too...but she really wants to get past being so frightened. So please pray that God rests His hands on her shoulders and gives her the peace she so desperately seeks.

Subject:Please pray for me- things are desprerate
Posted by:byrthebb.
Time:9:57 am.
Mood: depressed.
I lost my job earlier this week. I had only started it a couple of weeks ago. It was a telemarketing job. I wasn't very good at it and was not able to make any sales. I had worked at this place several years ago and quit after about 1/2 a year. I didn't really won't to work there again but thought I would give it a try because I needed a job. Well it didn't work out.

I am very scared right now. I can't seem to find a job and the few I have had through temp. services don't usually pan out either. I have bills that I don't know if I am going to be able to pay and rent coming up next month. If I can't pay it, I am going to be evicted, along with my grown son. He tries to help me out as much as he can but he only works part-time at the library and he's also autistic. Long story. Oh, I have a dog too.

I gotta be honest. I am considering suicide. I am not happy with my life and I haven't been for quite some time. I can't seem to get ahead. I feel like I am in a pit that I keep falling back into or whatever. I am so tired of struggling and struggling and getting nowhere.

So anyway- I really need your prayers. I don't know what else to do anymore.

Subject:If you would be so kind...
Posted by:ragingnymph.
Time:12:18 am.
I'm happy to have found this community!

I ask for thoughts and prayers for my mom. She is a wonderful woman who has had too much medical issues in her life. Among other issues, she developed blood clots when pregnant with my brother. She has had over 30 clots in her life, including one that went through her heart and lung. She's, against all odds, survived, but she has been house-bound the last two years, due to grotesque swelling and intense pain in her foot. Her doctor had all but written her off (we are now being told that she is in the shape she is because he did nothing for so long, when he should have been trying to get rid of the last blood clot - that she still has!). My SO and I moved back home, and made things happen. She is now in the hospital and is going to be transferred to a rehabilitation facility. This is great!

But now, she's loosing some faith, hope, and strength. She needs good thoughts and prayers sent her way. I would appreciate any candles lit for her. She has a strong will, but she has been in so much pain for so long. I worry about her! Please send good, strong thoughts her way.

If you'd like to learn more about her, I invite you to visit the CaringBridge site made for her. Please do sign the guestbook if you would. I am trying to get her spirits up by showing her people care. Since she will be (most likely) in the facility over the holidays, any hope and love is going to help make the season a bit brighter. She is, obviously, down about not being at home this time of year.

Thanks so much for listening. My mom is a one of a kind person... She deserves a much happier and pain free life!

Just as this was okay'ed for posting, I learned she has been moved to the cricital care unit. Prayers URGENTLY needed!

Please say a prayer for some very dear friends of mine...dittrich and bossfan. They recently (within the last couple of months) had to put one of their cats to sleep due to a liver disease. They got 2 new ones *very* recently, and it turns out that one of their new ones actually has the *same* liver disease. What are the chances of that?! She is currently at the emergency vet (has been for a number of days) and it does not look good. Please pray that they have something good to be thankful for tomorrow.

Thank you!! :-)

Please say a small prayer for my husband Ken. He hit his head very hard at work on Friday. He is still suffering from a bad headache, and now is experiencing some dizzyness and disorientation. I am staying home from work today so I can take him to the doctor. Please say a prayer that everything is okay.

Thanks!! :)

Subject:Update on the bitty babe
Posted by:fallpryncess.
Time:5:46 pm.
Mood: hopeful.
Tuesday morning: [Email from Jase's grandma]  Just a quick update:  Jase was stable for the afternoon.  His vital signs were where they should be for the condition he is in.  The major prayer need is for his lungs.  He needs to begin to breath on his own.  Thanks for all your prayers so far.  He seemed to settle down this morning when people began to pray.

I wish his grandma knew how many people were praying for him and it's constant. Thanks everyone for praying for strangers. :) R

I am reposting this prayer request with permission of the original poster. The girl we are praying for is named Erin.

Friends of ours are pregnant with their first baby. She's around 23 weeks...due in December. A few days ago her water broke; she's been hospitalized on bedrest. So far the babygirl has been extremely healthy and just gained a bunch of weight, so there's hope, but we just got notified that she's in labor.

I know you don't know them, or even me when it comes down to it, but my heart hurts so much for them. If you could take thirty seconds out of your day for them that would be awesome



I do not know Erin personally but wanted to make sure that she and her baby get as many prayers as they can. Thanks for being here.
Love, Rebecca

Time:10:05 am.
I need some prayers right now. I am very confused and conflicted and I'm not sure which way to turn. Which is why I'm seeking God's assistance and that His wisdom will guide me in the right direction.

Allright. Ken brought home a job description over the weekend. It was for a job at the place he works. And the job duties are very similar to what I did at Van Waters (that's where I worked before I opted to quit and start doing day care). That is, I'd be responsible for a whole mess of different things, that would have daily, or weekly, or monthly deadlines. There's no reason why I wouldn't be qualified for this either. Not that I in any way see myself as a shoe in...not even close. I gave up that cocky attitude a long time ago. But I do see myself as a worthy candidate for this. Oh, and the pay's pretty decent too. Plus, I gotta say getting out into the workforce again and actually interacting with people daily does sound darn appealing.

Here's where I'm having trouble. There are SO many reasons why I really desire to work at home. I have an epileptic dog. Leaving him home for such a long time every day scares the crap out of me. And, the whole reason I decided to do day care in the first place was so that I could be home and raise Angel. If I go back to work outside the house full time, I'm right back where I started. And if Ken and I have another baby, that was the ultimate beautiful thing about day care. I'd be here, and could more than likely breast feed for more than a handful of weeks like I did with Angel.

We discussed it this morning and I told Ken I want this job. But I want to be at home. I want to work *here*. There's no way I can have both...these are mutually exclusive things. I am so torn over this I can't even begin to explain it. I have shed more tears over this, it's just crazy. My head is telling me that getting this job is the best thing for us right now but I fear I'll be both really happy at having a steady paycheck again, yet really depressed about not being at home. Ken's bringing an application home for me to fill out today. I think attempting to get this job is the right thing. Yes, I feel I want to be a responsible parent and oversee any and all things in my daughter's life. Yet, a truly responsible parent is going to maintain not only their children's lives, but the stability of their children's lives too. So in all honesty the most responsible thing to do is pursue this. Financially, we are really struggling. Now, Walker *is* dog friendly, but the person who last held this job brought her dog in every day, and folks had issues with it. So I wouldn't want to push it. Still, if a worst case scenario presented itself and I needed to bring him with me, I think at least I could approach the subject. I pray I'm doing the right thing.
