In need…

Wow, two posts in one week, I’m in the game now! Actually, this post comes from one military wife far from home who needs some prayer. Yesterday I was supposed to post a reminder about the Navy Wife Radio show… but instead I was planning a trip back to Colorado to be with my mom. We found out that she has a large mass growing in her abdominal cavity that has caused extreme weight loss, fatigue and all around blah feeling… she just hasn’t felt like herself lately. She has an appointment with an oncologist in Denver at one of the leading hospitals to diagnose whether it is a cancerous tumor or not. As I write this, I have a heavy feeling in my heart knowing she is there and I am over 1,000 miles away… and being the only child, she’s just got my dad… oh and the dog that took my place, Baylee. If you don’t pray, say a couple words to just lift her spirit… but if you do pray, I am asking for prayer. I know this is an odd post to put up but being associated with the military, you find your friends places far and wide… and I know that even if I’ve never met any of you, I still call you friends because you are in the same boat, have been in the same boat or are embarking on the boat that we call our life. And you know, sometimes you just gotta sit and write out how you feel before you can feel any better…

  1. As a cancer survivor, I can tell you a few things about what to expect. If it is cancer, things are going to be rough, but there is no certainty in this life except the day you have been given. Use each day.

    The most tiresome about cancer is the hand-holding and support I had to give to everybody else. People treat you like you are a walking dead man the minute you say the word cancer. I fought, and I won, at least so far, and that is the key, win or lose. You have to fight like you mean it, even if there is little hope. Lose your desire to fight and you lose everything.

    Get a second opinion.

    Find the best doctor for the job.

    Get your finances in order. If you lose this fight you won’t need the money, so spend, spend, spend.

    Be who you are, and then be better than that. You define your life, not some misguided set of cells.

    Rise to the moment. This is the fire that refines. Deal with this and you can deal with anything.

  2. I hope all goes well for your mother. Keep us posted.

  3. I hope everything works out for your mom and your family. I’ll keep you all in my prayers!

  4. Hope things go ok with you mother. So sorry to hear she is not doing well. Prayers are going your way! HUGS!

  5. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

    Many doctors/specialist thought I had cancer when I had a large complex mass inside my ovari. . .It ended up being a tumor and it wasn’t cancer! Thank GOD! But, I remember the process, the doctors, and all the stress and fear that came with it. If it makes you feel any better, every single doctor that saw me ended up being wrong in the best possible way. I know there where many peole praying for me and it helped me get through it. And my poor husband was a mess. Without family and friends, I don’t know what would have been! Keep us posted and we will be here for you!
