Pray for Me?

I wouldn't hesitate at all to ask you to pray for someone else but I feel really strange asking you to pray for me. Why is that?

I had stage 3 malignant melanoma removed from my back in 2002. They sliced a 7 inch line down my back and took out all the flesh to the muscle. (that is my understanding anyway:) All the cancer was removed and my lymph nodes were unaffected.

I now have 3 very sinister moles all around the site. not good on a few different levels. There was a rush put in to have them removed and biopsied. That is being done tomorrow. I don't know when we will receive the results.

I am now cleaning and checking the fluids on my van (nagging my husband to actually) and figuring out school for everyone while I am gone. My husband wanted to go with me but honestly, I need him more here. In the back of my mind I'm wondering if I am going in for surgery again and will be out of commission for another year. Should I be getting school ready for then? Will I refuse chemo-therapy. Will I be open in the recovery room. I'm sacred.

I KNOW that I should worry about nothing and bring all my concerns before Him with thanksgiving. I KNOW that no matter what happens He is still the God of all.

Will you remember me and my family in prayer as we keep those two facts in the forefront of our minds and our hearts focused on Him.

Hi Kathy...
I was about to get off the computer,cause I'm a little tired..but I decided to visit one more on Tuesday Tag Along...and now I feel as though I was led here.
You see..I am a Stage 4,level 13 malignant melanoma survivor... When my melanoma was found, I was given maybe 2 months to live,if I got lucky
the Dr's told me. Long story short,I was sent to M.D.Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and was chosen to be the first participant in a clinical trial..both with a medication and a procedure. To say I was terrified,was an understatement...but I know I did not go into surgery alone. My Lord held my hand and never left me.. and in the days that followed, He held my hand and I was reminded of the Footprint writing...that at times there is only one set of footprints where there had been two, and that's when my Lord carried me.
I'm not sure why I'm telling you all this.....except to tell you,I know the fear you feel and the need to have everything with your family done just the way you want.
I will be thinking of you and praying for you... I know that you and your family are not alone...
I've become a follower..I'll be back to visit again...my prayers are with you..xxxx CC

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I clicked over and saw this post...I had a malignant melanoma removed in 2000. Mine was not nearly as involved as yours, but I also have the "frankenstein scar" on my back. I know the scary thoughts that go through your head and all the questions you wish you could have answers to. I will be praying for you, and would love to hear updates!
