My heart is heavy with sadness this morning. Last night we found out that my brother-in-law's prostrate cancer has spread further into his bones. It is hard to see my husband's sorrow and pain over what his only brother is going through, It was only last November that we found out his brother had prostrate cancer and it was a shock to all of us. His brother had been having back trouble for a few years...but never thought much of it since most of us have back trouble at one time or another. But finally that back trouble bothered him so much that he decided to see a Doctor about it...and his back trouble turned out to be prostrate cancer that had spread to his backbone. There was surgery to take out some vertebrae that the cancer had eaten away and that bone was replaced with a rod. The cancer in the prostrate was to advanced to even remove the prostrate as it would just cause the cancer cells to spread even faster...but they did do radiation to try to stop the cells from making more. And after that they tried chemo...but had to stop that because it caused some kind of fungus in his lungs that they thought was cancer at first too. After finally getting that fungus cleared up enough to restart chemo...they find more cancer cells in his left arm bones. When he called us with the news last night my husband stayed upbeat and positive while on the phone with his brother...but he broke down and let me see his anguish after they had ended the call...and my heart broke for both of them. So I went where I always go when my heart is heavy and feeling burdened...I lifted that heavy burden and sorrow up in prayer to my heavenly Father. And this morning although I still carry that sorrow...I know God is helping me carry it too. I am a praying person and I love to pray for others too. So I wanted to start this thread for those who would like prayer...even if you don't believe in God. Because knowing someone is there and cares when your sorrow is overflowing is a wonderful blessing. So if you have a need or burden...if for any reason you would like me to say a prayer for you or any of your loved ones...then feel free to let me know here. If you don't want to be specific in what you want prayer for you don't have to be....just let me know you would like me to pray for you. This morning my prayers are for all those who are fighting cancer in their bodies. If you know someone who is going through this and would like me to pray for them...please let me know.
