I have a thread on family in the regular prayer area, but have had a recent turn in events regarding my mother, Cheryl. She has Chronic Lukemia and COPD affecting heart and lungs and has been in the hospital since June of this year. Last night she became very ill and now has water forming in her lungs, increased heart rate, is in ICU on breathing machine, and now they say her kidneys are barely functioning and if they can get her blood pressure to stablelize they are going to do a cat scan without dye (because of no kidney function), then if that shows anything to warrant going in, they will do emergency exploratory surgery, even at great risk. I cant go up there because I have a head cold and wouldnt be allowed to enter the ICU floor. Please keep us in prayer.

:pray:ing for the Lord to reach down an alleviate all these diseases which are trying to take over your mom's bodily functions. Lord, please touch her with your healing hands. Father, I have seen you work in so many lives, Lord...just pure miracles...We know that YOU are the miracle-working God. Only through YOU, Lord, can we come boldly to the throne and request that you hear and answer our prayers. I thank you Lord, for all that you do....which is a tremendous amount, always. Thank you for your new mercies every morning, Father...Thank you for loving us first, and sending YOUR Son so that we could have everlasting life. I pray all these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

God Bless you and your family:hug:

The doctors are calling for all family to come in tomorrow to see mom, her heart is showing damage now and has full pneumonia, kidneys not functioning etc. They cant do more for her because they cant operate to find out whats wrong (too high risk) and they dont expect her to make it through. Please keep us in prayers through the next week, I'll drop a note when im able to. Love to all and thank you for praying and thinking of us.

My family is meeting in the morning to have life support removed. My mom wont be able to breathe without it. The luekemia has gone agressive/acute and is attacking her liver and splean and the only way to treat that is with chemo and she wouldnt survive that either. The pain hits and causes her bp and heart to act up and its getting worse. The doctors say there is no treatment that will help her heal at this point and any type of life support is just going to keep her in pain more and more and the doctors asked the family to decide. So im going to lose mom in the morning. Please pray for all of us.

John 6:37-40
All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me.

And this is the Father's will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

there is no failure, no loss

I would like to share a poem written by my mother, it shows the focus of her heart and is a real blessing to read. Thank you all again for being friends and brothers/sisters in Christ. I thank God for you all.

the following link takes you to a blog copy of her poem that has the song playing "Psalm 1" by Kim Hill :

My heart grieves with yours. I lost my Mom over a year ago in a similiar fashion but mainly from Diabetes complications and her age. Lots of hospital stays etc. Ups and mostly downs.
I miss my mom horribly but I'm so happy she is with the LORD! She suffered so.
Remember that Always and it will pull you through the hard times.
