RE: Praying for cure

by MC2012 - December 07, 2012

I keep thinking back on how last year at this time things were So different.Last year we were so looking forward to the holidays. So much happiness, laughter and now so many tears and fears. Seeing our loved ones go thru this is nothing we could ever prepare for. It's devastating, heart breaking. Why does this happen???

Days are becoming more difficult to understand. So many questions we will never get answered.

I know its been a while but how are things going with your aunt?

Katherine

We have been given heart breaking news about my aunts prognosis. Her chemo treatments have failed and we've been informed its too aggressive and there's nothing else that can be done. Accepting this is the most difficult. We're still in disbelief that this is happening.

If all could please keep my aunt in your prayers

Things for my aunt haven't been going in the direction we were hoping for. It's been very difficult for her. Her recent hospital visit brought more devastating news. The reason for her not being able to hold food down is because now she's been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. She was sent home with TPN. Which is a way she receives the nutrients her body requires by bypassing digestive system. She's adjusting the best that she is able to, under these circumstances. She started a new chemo treatment on Friday. Side effects have been rough. We continue to pray and will not lose hope.

Dear MC2012,

I too am so familiar with that terrible sense of hopeless and worry. Sometimes, when no one is around I let my tears lessen my inner turmoil. I have sent a prayer in hope that she’s cured of this dreadful disease. I pray that you find comfort, strength, and understanding in the mist of such a storm. 

With Great Compassion,

Katherine

This week has been a rough week for my aunt. She's having trouble holding down anything. She's currently in hospital and after having endoscope, has been told cancer in esophagus. I feel helpless. Im trying to stay positive as we all know miracles do exist. I keep reminding myself that the devil wants us losing hope, but keep faith in God to get her thru this. I've had many nights of crying and I know it won't make matters any better but we're only human and seeing our love ones hurt is a pain that we never can prepare for.

Asking for prayers for my loving aunt. This week has been a difficult week for her. Her symptoms have become worse and she's much weaker from lack of rest and chemo. Her abdomen is very swollen and hard. The path our love ones have been dealt is so painful. Feeling helpless and full of worry.

At times when I get down, I tell myself that doing this will not help the situation. I remind myself, that if my aunt can take on each day with a smile. So should I. I realize life isn't perfect,but why must life consist of pain and suffering? Its just not fare no matter how we look at it. Update on my loving aunt. She's been having some bad days.She 's lost about 40-50 lbs. Her energy level has dropped as expected,but everyday she pushes forward. I know all of y'all can relate to these days. Even with her bad days, she looks forward to the future with hope,dedication and determination. Her smile can brighten up any day. Thru all of this her smile has never changed. Even when I know she's hurting, she has the perfect smile. So the next time any of us are feeling hopeless, just picture their smiles. Start each day with a prayer of thanks and end the day with a prayer of hope.Rememb er that tomorrow is another day that has been overcome and one step closer to a cure. God bless to all.

As my 23 year old daughter's caregiver a wide range of emotions consume me. On good days, we celebrate life, and on not so good days we pray. Sometimes, I feel as though it's hard to breath, with my emotions clutching desperately to Hope. In two days, a CT and PET Scan, will let us know if the chemo is shrinking this cancerous lymph node in her chest. Her third cycle will begin in five days. In the meantime, her Lymphoma symptoms have returned, including her face swelling up again. My fear of the unknown forces me to panic silently. I pray for a cure to this terrible disease.

I can totally relate to you Katherine. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your 23 year old beautiful and precious daughter. My daughter will soon have her third cycle of chemotherapy and it has been awful to watch such fast deterioration. Please let us know when yo ucan how the CT scan goes. We only get CT Scan here in scotland no one offeed PET scan not sure what that is.

Praying for you both and thinking of you both. Keep strong and keep courage. I know how hard it is to watch our beautiful young dauther's in such pain and feel so helpless.

Keep strong I try to and keep hope and courage and prayers.

I will for you and your daughter

Love L in Scotland x

A PET scan is a more in depth scan that shows were in the body there is cancer.

We all must continue to keep praying and keep our faith.Our love ones need us to stay positive and continue to help them with strength and motivation. Giving up is not an option. Everyday, has to bring us closer to a cure. My aunt received her PET scan results. Chemo has helped but not as much as her oncologist was hoping for. For now, they will continue 2 more sessions of her current treatment and then will be referred to another specialist that will be able to be more aggressive with treatment by putting in a port. We remain positive and grateful for each day! Prayers for all!
