    I had a call from my brother this evening ... he had been trying to reach me on my mobile phone (temporarily disconnected) all week. My 82-yr-old mother is in the hospital with lung cancer. She is a Hodgkins survivor of many years and is one of the strongest women I know. I have watched her get more & more frail over the last 2 years.

    Over the last several months, my relationship with my mother has basically gone down the toilet ... we fight all the time, and I end up feeling like a child (I'm 52). I need to clear things up with my mother soon ... they don't give her much time.

    Please pray that I will know God's timing as to when I should go (she is still very weak). They are hoping to have her home soon, and she will undergoing radiation therapy. And pray again for our finances and for travelling mercies.

    I don't think I've ever felt so small and afraid.

    Hello Jan,

    Dear Lord, I pray that you hear all the prayers from this worship board and the ones from Jan. Lay down your healing hands and give peace,comfort, and strength to all involved.
    Give Jan the strength and her mother to talk and work things out in their relationship. In Jesus name, amen.

    ... for your prayers. I am waiting to hear from my brother, but am planning to drive up to D.C. on Tuesday or Wednesday. It will depend on how my mom feels, whether she will let me stay in her house & use her car (my partner will drive me up & return home later in the week).

    I feel like I'm sleep-walking and all of this is not happening.

    Mom is weak, but trying to fight. She started chemo on Weds, and will have radiation every day, Monday thru Friday.

    We came back home to the beach last nite so I could get some clothes together & get all of my meds; I will drive back to MD tomorrow morning and am planning on being there all of next week and beyond, if necessary.

    I was able to talk with Mom, and I feel that we have settled our little disputes ... they became so insignificant! She wants me there to "take care" of her; I think only a daughter can do that for a mom ... no matter the differences in the past there is that bond.

    Thanks to all for your continued prayers. They mean so much to all of us.

    I lost my own Mother just over a year ago and miss her every day. Even if your relationship has been strained, I know you will want to see your Mom and cement the love you have for one another. I have you all in my prayers as I know this is a very difficult time for all of you. Whenever you go, it will be the right time and will benefit both of you more than you can know now. Bless you.

    Love, Mikie

    Sorry it's taken me so long to get back on this board ... the last 2 weeks are pretty much a blur.

    Mom passed away just after 5am on October 6th. My youngest brother was with her. I was able to see her on Sunday afternoon, and I believe that she knew me; but she was in horrible pain and struggling to breathe.

    Thanks to all who have been praying for us; now we need prayers for release and healing.

    My deepest sympathys to you. It is so hard to lose a parent. I`m glad you got to see her before she passed. I`m sure having you and your brother there before she died comforted her and gave her peace.

    Praying that God will comfort you in your grief.

    hugs,
    Sandyz
