    We are a family in need of prayer support. My mother-in-law has ovarian cancer. My younger sister has an undiagnosed autoimmune disorder resulting in pernicous anemia, severe diabetes, high blood presssure, and a deteriorating spine. Her husband has severe back problems and arthritis and is heading toward being disabled. My other brother-in-law is a recovering alcoholic has just been diagnosed with oral cancer. My older sister is now the sole support of this household which includes an invalid
    uncle who is dying of heart disease. Besides FMS,I have had multiple health problems the past six months including a giant kidney stone, abdominal hernia, ovarian cyst (benign),fibroid tumors, diverticulosis,and Hashimoto's thyroid disease. After three liptotripsy treatments, I have two large stone pieces left. Friday, a radiologist will insert a nephrostomy tube into the kidney. Tuesday, my urologist will go into the kidney through the tube and laser the remaining pieces.

    Please pray for our healing, but just as importantly pray that we maintain our joy in the Lord. Pray that God strengthens the caretakers in our family with the grace to serve. Pray for wisdom and compassion from those in the medical professsion involved in our treatments.

    God bless you all.

    Thank you Debbie. I just discovered this part of the site late last night. I am very excited. Up until this past year and half, I have been very active in Christian ministry. We made a move which required us finding a new church, but I haven't been able to get involved because of my health. At the moment, I can't drive because of arthritis in my right knee-my latest problem. Right now going to church on Sunday is sometimes more than I can manage physically. My husband is a wonderful support, but I feel kind of isolated. I see this place as an answer to my prayers.

    I'm praying God keeps you and your family in his hands and through it all you feel His love.

    Dash, will be praying the Lord's blessings be poured out upon your entire family, those who are ill, and for the caregivers too.

    I also will pray for compassion in the medical field, much is needed there.

    Shalom, Shirl
