You are amazing. A couple of weeks ago, I requested your prayers for my mother and her recent cancer surgery. Your response overwhelmed both me and her.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers and for the encouraging notes you posted here and on Facebook. My mother, myself, and our entire family are so grateful for your love and support. Your prayers covered us all (and especially Mother) with God’s comfort, peace, and strength.
Mother was diagnosed with early-stage colon cancer about a month ago, and her surgery was on Monday, December 5th. Right before surgery, her wonderful Christian doctor told me, “I’m going to take care of your mother just like I would my own mom.” And he meant it. I am now his fan for life.
Her surgery went very smoothly, and the excellent care she received from the nursing staff and doctors there during her stay was a blessing. All evidence of the power of your precious prayers.
The day after surgery, we received the pathology report. The cancer was Stage 2 but no NO cancerous cells were found in any of the lymph nodes they tested. Praise the Lord, sisters, and God bless you for your powerful prayers!
It’s been almost two weeks since Mom’s surgery, and I am thrilled to report that she is now home and recovering little by little each day. The only person who is happier than she is to be home is my dad. Before her surgery, she made sure their pantry was stockpiled with enough food and provisions for a year-long Armageddon-like event. However, if they’re in the mood for Chick-Fil-A, Olive Garden, or anything else, Dad is The Man. He loves to run errands and pick up food. They are a great team. They take care of one another.
Mother will be seeing an oncologist soon, and he will determine whether or not she needs to receive chemo. Please pray that God will give him wisdom regarding that diagnosis.
Sisters, I cannot begin to express how much your love and prayers mean to me. But when I think of you, there is a verse that comes to mind:
“The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].” James 5:16 AMP
Thank you, dear sisters! Your prayers are powerful and God has used them to accomplish so much. Know of my love, prayers, and thanksgiving to God for you.
With a heart full of love and gratitude,
P.S. How can I pray for you? It would be my privilege. Post your prayer request, and I will pray. Love!
