Please Pray

Hey, guess what?! I'm not writing about my kids today.

Actually, I 'm not writing about me either.

When Miss M was almost 2 weeks old, a dear old (as in since high school) friend called apologizing for not calling sooner. It was the start of the school year and my friend is a teacher and also has a daughter in elementary school so I knew she was busy. "Don't apologize for being busy," I said.

Then she said, "No, things have been nuts." After a summer of trying to determine the cause of her husband's health issues, he had a brain tumor removed. The surgeon went in expecting a cyst but when he came out of surgery he said he didn't like the look of it. They were still waiting for the pathology report as we spoke that day.

I didn't call the day they went for the results and I left a voicemail the following day, but I didn't want to bury them under phone calls so waited.

Today I found out he has class IV Glioblastoma Multiforme, a very aggressive form of brain tumor

I am asking you to pray for my friend's husband (He's in his 40s) and for her and for their daughter as well. While the prognosis for this can be daunting, I know that he is planning on fighting it with everything he's got.

I'm far away so I thought the biggest and best thing I can do is to pray and to ask others to pray too.

Thank you!



  1. I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.
    Cancer sucks.

  2. Came to your blog today in the hopes of finding some inspiration, as I seem to be having one of those days (or weeks) And while I find that I can get caught up in the "stuff" that doesn't seem to be going right, I realized after reading your blog that there is little that I need to complain about. It's all relative, isn't it. I'm hoping that this someone from HS days will feel the love and prayers come their way. If I happen to know who this is, please send along my thoughts and prayers.

  3. My prayers are with him and his family.

  4. I was moved by your prayer.
    It touched me deeply. My husband and I use every time we feel the need to do something practical and to uplift our prayers.
    I am praying for the almighty to help you.
