    We’re just human and make mistakes and the Lord will forgive us if we believe. Come to God when you feel weary and He will give you rest.

    Hi Everyone, Just wanted to say thanks again for the prayers for a job in July. I’m still working and thanking God for his provision and your prayers. I pray for our country and that I don’t give in to despair when evil appears to prosper. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but they are mighty!

    Hello, I am writing a Prayer request for my daughter. She is 16 and very confused. She claims she is a Non-Binary person, but tries to look like a boy as much as she can. She knows God exists yet denies him. We, my wife and I warned her of the lies of the world, and she chose the world over those who love and provide for her. At any rate I am asking that we pray for God to guide her back into his loving embrace and save her soul from eternal torment. Her name is Paris. Please ask God to help me guide her back to him. Ask God to provide me the words or tools needed to save my baby from Hell. Thank you all and God Bless us all. Amen

      Jeff P,
      I pray that God will continue to call her and speak to her; I pray that God continues to trouble her that she finds no rest until she seeks peace. I pray that she turns to God for Peace and to her family for help.

      I pray for you that you are totally submitted to God that you depend wholly on Him and that your despair turns to hope in Him, His Will, and His touch.

    Lord, I pray for justice and mercy in our nation. There are people and evil forces that want to rip us apart but you Lord, can intervene. I pray for Judge Kavanaugh and his family, that he would be vindicated and protected even as these evil people lie about him and smear him. I also pray that we listen to you as to how to respond and give us patience to wait on you but the feet to act when necessary. I pray for my brothers and sisters here, that they have your comfort, peace and love. Amen

    “We can distribute Ashley Kavanaugh’s prayer request as far and wide as we can imagine: PSALM 40.”

    NC Nana said:

    Psalm 40 New International Version (NIV)
    For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
    1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
    he turned to me and heard my cry.
    2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
    out of the mud and mire;
    he set my feet on a rock
    and gave me a firm place to stand.
    3 He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
    Many will see and fear the LORD
    and put their trust in him.
    4 Blessed is the one
    who trusts in the LORD,
    who does not look to the proud,
    to those who turn aside to false gods.[b]
    5 Many, LORD my God,
    are the wonders you have done,
    the things you planned for us.
    None can compare with you;
    were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
    they would be too many to declare.
    6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire—
    but my ears you have opened[c]—
    burnt offerings and sin offerings[d] you did not require.
    7 Then I said, “Here I am, I have come—
    it is written about me in the scroll.[e]
    8 I desire to do your will, my God;
    your law is within my heart.”
    9 I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly;
    I do not seal my lips, LORD,
    as you know.
    10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
    I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help.
    I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness
    from the great assembly.
    11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, LORD;
    may your love and faithfulness always protect me.
    12 For troubles without number surround me;
    my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
    They are more than the hairs of my head,
    and my heart fails within me.
    13 Be pleased to save me, LORD;
    come quickly, LORD, to help me.
    14 May all who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
    may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
    15 May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
    be appalled at their own shame.
    16 But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
    may those who long for your saving help always say,
    “The LORD is great!”
    17 But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    may the Lord think of me.
    You are my help and my deliverer;
    you are my God, do not delay.

    As I prayed for Ashley and her family I felt the plea of these versus.

    12 “For troubles without number surround me.” “They are more than the hairs of my head.”

    Think of the demon filled people plotting against her and her family right now.

    13 “Be pleased to save me, LORD;
    come quickly, LORD, to help me.”

    God, please send Your angels to protect Ashley and her family through the night and the days ahead. They need You but we need You to protect them too.

    Dear God, I commit the above verses to your will. Please let them be true for tonight, tomorrow, and forever. Please put your loving arms around the Kavanaugh family and the nation tonight and keep us all safe. Please bring out more people such as Senator Cotton to speak up about what is right. Let the people who will hear, hear their words.

    Thank you for doing all that you do to deliver the Kavanaughs and the USA from the slimy pit of destruction. May the angels join in singing your praises.

    In Jesus name, amen.

    A prayer request for a fellow Treeper… Baby Boomer. She is facing some serious medical issues in the coming months and needs all of the support and prayer anyone can provide for her. We were at the Vanderbilt Medical Center last week for a consultation, which led to a surgical biopsy. The report on the biopsies which were taken should be in either this Monday or Tuesday. This is an emotional and frightening time, as it appears she may well have lung cancer… a disease which also took her brother. Pray for a good result and for her strength and emotional health, please

      benzy,

      You may want to consider making your prayer request here at BBN for Baby Boomer too.

      BBN is the Bible Broadcast Network. They have prayer every day at 1:15 p.m. ET.
      I am often on the road at this time of day so I pray right along with them as I go down the road. It is a good way for a lot people to hear about your prayer needs.

      (If BBN doesn’t broadcast in your area you can listen to them on the internet. I think they may have downloadable pod casts too. Not sure. I do it the old fashioned way I listen to them on the car radio.)

          We are getting there. We had a rough beginning. So many problems to deal with and so much expense. Everything is working now. We just need a system to take the iron and rust out of the water but can’t afford it yet.

          We have had a record breaking hot September in Florida, none hotter than this one on record. I got overheated over and over working in the house, hot garage, and hot bonus room. I got severely dehydrated more than once and have not recovered. The unpacking has been so hard on my back and legs the pain is off the charts.

          Gary recovered from the infection what ever caused it. It was discovered he has severe sleep apnea so he has been through the studies and got fitted for the mask and is adjusting to wearing it. Hope it makes him feel better. He has mainly stayed in the air conditioning and recuperating.

          A nice neighbor (the one with the cows) stopped by to introduce himself. He was all dressed like a cowboy, probably around our age, maybe older. He said several times for us to have a blessed evening and for God to bless us. God has sent so many nice people our way since we moved.

          I heard a cardinal singing most mornings and finally saw him the other day. The little tweetie birds have discovered our bird feeder but the squirrels have not discovered their corn cobs yet. It is so good to be able to go outside in our own yard and enjoy the peace and quiet and God’s creation. We are so blessed. When I unpack the last box I am taking a long needed rest for awhile and get my leg propped up and watch some t.v. or read. Sounds like a plan.

            I am so happy the cardinals have greeted you at your new home…I don’t think they are in northern Montana, but my Grandma loved them. My Mom’s favorite was robins. On my Lil Bro’s last days I stayed away from looking out the window for fear I would see one. Of course it showed up just after he died. I think I commented, “So there you are…” For my sister & her daughter it is the hawk. One always appears when they need to see it or flying over the prairie cemetery where my bother-in-law is buried…God sends us these little signs…
            Prayers for all here, thinking of you even if I don’t post…

              It was after by sudden cardiac death in 2008 that I began my love of birds. It’s like all of a sudden my eyes were opened and noticed the beauty of God’s creations, especially birds. I started watching and enjoying them. My love of cardinals started a couple of years ago when I noticed that was the kind of bird God sent when He wanted my attention.

    You have told us we are blessed because we don’t turn aside to lies. Over and over you tell us you have plans for us. We know our lives have had blessings beyond measure. We ask that You lead us into the presence of the Holy Spirit to be our rock and shield as we await the results of the FBI investigation tomorrow.

  19. Hi Precious Treeper Prayer Warriors,

    I wanted to share a brief praise report. One of my 22 year old twins, Brandon, has been being a light shining in the darkness as he’s been working on some co-workers with the gospel. One young lady in particular has been especially on his heart as he has taken her to church numerous times & they just attended a retreat with that college-based church this past weekend. He called home on Friday to let us know that Maddie had accepted the Lord as her savior even before the first gathering had happened!

    Ironically the day before this happened he almost died in a car accident. He was coming back from fellowshipping in the Lord with someone on the campus of Wayne State University, where the church he attends meets, when he saw a car off the highway missing a wheel. As he contemplated trying to exit to work his way back to try & help them he encountered the missing wheel heading down I-94 & swerved to avoid it but it still scraped along the driver’s side of the car (he’d been travelling about 75 mph). He was still being fueled with adrenaline after getting home safely.

    Ironically before encountering that tire he was listening to some Christian music & praising the Lord for the spontaneous fellowship he had just had with another believer. He had been thinking to himself that it could be the perfect time for the Lord to take him home, while on such a spiritual high. Of course we are all very thankful that God hasn’t called him home yet!!!

    The darkness is still being beaten back…even if we might not see it based on ubiquitous news coverage. Keep the faith & don’t be discouraged…God is still on His throne!

    Blessings to all! In Christ

  23. Hello and prayers offered to you all who are in need.
    Back in May, I asked for prayers for our Doberman rescue, diagnosed with cancer. After a couple of lung taps to drain fluid from his lungs so he could breathe more easily, we were able to have 5-1/2 more months with him. We put him down on Tue. It was awful, but seeing him struggle with breathing again was also awful; so the choices were: Do you want awful or do you want awful? We chose awful. But at least he no longer struggles.
    We would appreciate your prayers for our family too. We give thanks to God that we had the opportunity to adopt him back in 2010 (at the age of 3). We give thanks that we had 5-1/2 years with him. He was truly, truly special. Those words don’t even begin to convey how we felt, but it’s as close as I can come.

      My heart goes out to you. I know it took a lot of love and courage to put your Doberman down. I’m so glad you were able to love him for the 5-1/2 years and give him the love he needed.
      I am in the same boat as you with our Bichon ((Dinky). We have had him for 15-1/2 years (since he was 8 weeks old). He was diagnosed with Cushings Disease 2 years ago and probably had it 2 years prior to that. He also has arthritis and is blind in one eye. He lost the use of his back legs about 3 weeks ago and is on 3 different pain medicines plus a couple of other medicines. He now whimpers, barks and yelps periodically in pain and gets so frustrated that he cannot walk. We have to try to console him most of the time between pain pills. We made the dicision early this week when he had a pain episode that we have to do this because he is constantly in pain, but have not decided when yet. I ask for prayers also as we let him go with wonderful memories.
      May God bless you and your family and your special memories of your Doberman.

        I’ve been on both sides of the fence in making a decision about how to keep our fur babies vs easing their suffering. Either way it’s hard letting something go that loves us so much…. kinda like God’s love for us.

          It’s a sad time when your pet suffers but you don’t want to let go!😪 You look for anything to give you hope that they are getting better or stronger, but deep down you know it isn’t happening. They look to you for help, but it’s hard to look them in the eye and say goodbye.

        Ddanna,
        My heart is with you, I know it isn’t easy by any means. Our pups become our best friends so easily. They wiggle right into our hearts don’t they?

        I’ve never understood why they have such short life spans to us, it seems so unfair.

        My prayers are with you and your family, Dinky is family. Please know I’ve been down the same road as you and traveling a similar one with our Ella, who is definitely my best friend. Please know you’re in my heart, and I will be sending Dinky lots of good thoughts too.

        I use a gentle massage on our Ella, and she will even come up and invite it. During those times I always say a prayer to our Angels or Creator to ask if they can help alleviate her pain. I really believe this helps. I think it’s why she continues to ask for one.

        It also helps her jump on the bed, so she can stretch out along me and keep me warm and loved. I think it helps both of us.

        I truly believe Dinky will join our Creator and all of her friends when it is time. I’ve been told by a few that they are the first ones to greet us when we return, probably because they can run faster than our two-legged friends and family. So please know you will see Dinky again. This is only to say see you later and you will be greatly missed. I know it won’t be easy, and I hope I will be around if you need me. But know if my words are not being written here, you’re in my heart and prayers daily.
        Be well my friend,

          My husband and I had to let go of our Dinky last Friday. We knew we couldn’t watch him in pain much longer and after a bout with him barking, yelping and other pain noises, we took him to the vets office to have him put down. I know he knew it was time as he was showing for a while that he was tired with only eating and drinking to look forward too. He had started sleeping less and less and was uncomfortable while he was awake. You could see frustration in his eyes when he tried to move and couldn’t because his back legs no longer worked and his front legs were not strong enough to pull him forward. I had carried him outside to pee and poop for about 6 months before because he couldn’t walk that far and for the past month had to hold his back legs up while my husband held his front legs up with the leash so he could pee. Then I would put a rolled up beach towel around his tummy and hold up his back legs so he could walk enough to poop. (We three were a site walking around the condo like that, but that is what we had to do).
          He was a sweetie though and we have so many wonderful memories of our time with him. Up until the Cushings Disease he was very loving. Once the disease advanced all he seemed to focus on was food and water — but I know he still loved us! Everyone in the condo neighborhood knew and loved him and have been very supportive.
          We picked up his ashes today (very hard), but I think it helped. We miss him, but I’m hoping to see him again one day! I thank God for giving us 15-1/2 years of joy and love.

        Ddanna, we have a beagle-corgi mix, Lucy-dog. She lived a long time, had Cushings for 6 yrs, and the vets were surprised. We knew she was weakening, and she rallied a couple of times, but then had a seizure at home and was gone. We loved her dearly, but realize we wouldn’t want her to suffer, and were just about to make that difficult decision when she passed.

        Our memories of Lucy-dog are wonderful, and we rejoice in the 15+ years we had her.

        I believe the Lord cares for all the creatures He created. There will be peace for your sweet dog, and for you.

      I am ever so sorry to hear of this Cinderella, I was really hoping your Doberman would come out a-okay. I am happy to hear you had five and half more glorious months with him though.

      Many of us have lost one of our best buds covered in fur, but it is still hard to find the words to make you feel better when you’re in so much pain. Please just know we are here for you, and nothing is trivial when it comes to our pets. Sometimes writing a good memory helps and we’d love to read it if you want to or when you’re ready.
      Please know you’re in my heart and prayers and I am ever so sorry you’re having to go through this.

        Memories: no matter how SMALL the chair, he would insist on climbing up to lay with you. At times he looked so uncomfortable but in your lap he stayed! We have some hilarious photos of this. Also, sound asleep on the couch and dreaming; twitching legs and muffled barking. He was so funny. I loved petting his nose/muzzle. Velvety soft. He was just the sweetest, most pathetically affectionate dog we have ever cared for and loved.

    If I may, I’d like to request prayer for a friend of our family who is currently in the hospital. She has a very serious disease & contracted an infection a couple of weeks ago. It seems the effects of that have done quite a number on her & the current outlook is not good. She has a husband who is a number of years older than her & even though they’ve been preparing for this day, he would be lost without her. Please pray that the Lord will be with them both & mercifully guide them through this. Thank you all & God bless.

    Prayers needed for my hubby. On Friday he will under go a 12-14 hr surgery. The reconstructive neurosurgeon will put screws in his pelvis and rods and screws in all of his vertebrae from his pelvis to the top of his shoulders. He will be put into a semicoma for 24 -48 hrs while in ICU post op. He will remain in the hospital for 7-10 days then will go to rehab for at least 2 weeks for intensive Physical therapy. Long story short he was hit by a drunk driver. He broke his neck and has 2 discs fused in his neck. He has already had 6 screws and 4 rods in his lumbar back. This all started in 1993 when a drunk decided to leave a bar, drive a black car with no head lights on, On a dark rainy night with no overhead street lights and broad sided my husband. It has been a living nightmare ever since…He was only 34 yrs old when this happened and our kids were only 7, 5 and 3. Our two youngest only remember him always being in pain. Prayers on Friday for another surgery that he has to ensure will be very much appreciated. Thanks and God Bless.

Surgeon said everything went well. He fused from the pelvis to right believe his shoulder blades..one less level than he thought he would do. Swelling has gone down and he is off the ventilator on Sat. He is having severe pain. He still has a long road ahead of him. Thanks for everyone’s kind words and prayers.

    Please pray for Gary. He had an accident yesterday and is hurt. He fell off of the back of his truck and hit some stairs knocking him out. He has at least one broken rib ( they suspect more_), fractures on three levels in his lumbar back, nad a bad bump on the head. He is in a terrible amount of pain. The hospital has him on strong pain killers and put him in a big heavy back brace. The plan is strong pain killers and bedrest. They say it will take six to eight weeks to heal.

    Also please pray for my daughter, D. and her family that they will be safe from the hurricane. They live in Tallahassee. Thank you so much.

        At least we are all moved in and all necessities are unpacked. Everything can be put on hold until Gary is healed. Taking care of him requires I sit and watch him and help him when he tries to stand or walk. That is giing me much needed rest off of my legs. God will see us through this too. We are so grateful Gary is not paralyzed. He has complete bed rest for three days then he can move around cautiously. He hates the heavy big back brace and don’t blame him.

My goodness, enough is enough, it seems like it’s one thing after another. I don’t know how you do it. You’re one strong Momma is what I know. A heck of a strong woman.

      Please, please take time for you to rest as well. The boxes can wait. Drink lots of fluids and keep your feet up once you see you’re overdoing it.

      I was going to say, at least what’s her name isn’t there in your way. I can’t believe I forgot her name already and it was only one letter! I hope you can smile for that. 😘

      Please let Gary know we are praying for him and a solid recovery. Does he like to read? If so, what kind? Maybe I can send him some of my favorites that I have here at home. I’ve got a great collection of Navy SEALs, Rangers, Delta, Green Berets, and my favorite, Snipers. I know, I’m weird for a girl, I like war stories and such. I especially like learning about all of their guns and armaments etc.

      Please let me know if there is anything I can send Gary to help him when he starts getting bored. We love the both of you so much.

      Please don’t forget to take good care of yourself too or you will find me at your doorstep. 😘.

He likes the Navy Seals and Snipers I know. He had a very rough night last night. He woke up screaming and yelling in pain. The pain meds help him a lot but the doctor only gave him enough for three days. He goes to the orthopedic surgeion Friday and his family doctor on Monday and I am sure they will give him more.

    Boozhoo, (hello),
    I know I haven’t been around much and have been spending a little bit of time on the other threads. However, I think I’ve written more here today than I have in a week on the other threads. And I’m still nowhere near done with what I’d like to say to so many special people here.

    My hands are in some serious pain, so it makes it difficult to type. I’m shocked on how it can get worse and worse as time goes on, but we believe it’s the nerves repairing themselves. I joke around and claim the nerves are going in circles because they must be bloody lost.

    This Friday, October 12th I go in for a full mastectomy of the left breast. There is no saving it. They’re afraid they will have to go back in and take it all anyways if they don’t do it now. Plus, I’ve told them the less surgeries the better.

    They told me I don’t have enough breast to make it look decent and the tumors are still too large. I’ve lost forty pounds now, and that hasn’t helped either. My breasts weren’t small or large, just in the middle.

    They’ve also told me they don’t want it to go to the lymph nodes. Plus, the last MRI said they are in two quadrants instead of the one they had originally thought and if you laid out all of the tumors, they are longer than 10cm. I don’t know if this is true now, but it was at the very beginning.

    The surgeon has convinced me to keep my port in for a few more infusions. I will be asking the nurses to find a vein during this time though. If they have too many difficulties than I will have to keep it in. My port is literally poking through my skin. It looks awful and hurts all of the time. You can see three knobs poking through. I’m sure it has to do with my weight loss as well.

    I have great veins on my hands, but not my inner arm and that is where they go. Neither I nor the surgeon knows why. Another question on my list for when I see my cancer doctor the Thursday after surgery. I will be having an infusion then as well. Oh yay. I am so not looking forward to that so close after surgery. I guess I will just have to buck up and put my big girl panties on that day. 😊

    I’ve been terrible, I’ve tried not to think about surgery this Friday and losing my whole breast. What’s worse is it’s my hubby’s birthday on Thursday. All I can do is make him his favorite dinner with some help of a good friend. I no longer have the strength to go grocery shopping etc. I feel like a right putz just getting him a card and making him dinner. He understands though. He’s much better than I am about this. I’m trying to figure something out, but I keep coming up blank. I wish I would’ve thought of this two weeks ago and I could’ve ordered something off of the internet. It’s far too late for that. I don’t know what I would’ve gotten him anyways. Probably a Broncos hat.

    It’s my fault, I’ve spoiled him rotten on his birthdays. His Mom had three boys to raise alone, so they didn’t really celebrate birthdays like my family did. So I tried to make up for all of those years. I’ve given him some real doozies and even a surprise party one year. I wish I could do that again, but I don’t have the strength to spend all that time in the kitchen cooking. This cancer is really ticking me off right now since it’s holding me back with one of my loved ones. Just wait till next year, I will plan something completely outrageous and fun. There, that should help ease my mind a bit. I will plan something crazy and fun. I have a whole year to figure it out. Knowing me, I will forget until the last minute again. 🙃. I’m kidding. I will make up for it.

    So, Prayer Warriors, could you please send a few prayers on my behalf for this Friday? I would greatly appreciate it big time.

    I’m hoping all is well or at least getting there with all of you. I do hope lots of smiles come your way this week and throw in some good laughter too. 😁
    Be well my friends,

      Dear Ma’,
      I’d been praying to hear a good report on the pain. I will continue to pray for this.

      My great aunt died when I was in 7th or 8th grade. She had breast cancer before I was born and a mastectomy for one breast. She wore a fake breast in her bra. When she died, we decided to weigh it as it was quite large. It weight 11lbs – just one breast! You can imagine my shock at my age, and still to this day as I am fairly petite. 🙂

      I hope it’s appropriate to say this. Cancer can take your breast but it can never take your spirit! We love you! I marvel at your courage through all this and the upcoming surgery. I am praying for you.

      Happy Birthday to your husband from all of us here.

      Maybe you could do a little coupon book for him? One kiss, one hug, one joke, one movie/show his choice, 1 scandalous compliment, a slow dance, 1 hr snuggling, 1 of his choice.

    • Oh Ma’i (no pun intended 🙂 )…I’m so terribly sorry to hear that you are needing to have a mastectomy. Did they discuss the options of reconstruction with you? We had a church friend who had a double mastectomy & reconstruction done at the same time (I believe) & was in terrible pain & having to be hunched over for weeks in the healing process (they may have migrated some of her belly fat for the reconstruction?)…anyway I only mention that because of your desire to have the fewest surgeries possible…

      You are on a continually evolving adventure in this kicking cancer’s butt tale. Enjoy your husband & revel in your love on his birthday & the gift that you are all to each other. You & Dokme are probably the greatest gifts he’s ever received & all he needs in this latest celebration, so please drink each other in before you face the next hurdle.

      My heart is heavy for you as you face this latest battle after so many intense skirmishes already. May the Lord go before you & guard you, comfort you, heal you, enfold you in His arms of love, and carry you as you go through the surgery, recovery, & aftermath. Thank you for continuing to share your precious journey with us here when you are able. There is So Much Love for YOU here that it cannot be adequately expressed.

      You will remain in our hearts & in our prayers. Be strong & courageous Warrior Woman–you & God have got this one too. He will be with you every step of the way & you will Never Walk Alone.

        Your pun may not have been intended, but it did have me burst out with a happy laugh. So thank you for that.

        From what little I’ve gathered, if I want reconstructive surgery, I will have to travel to Anchorage, Alaska, which is more than 400 miles away. It can take more than seven hours of driving is all I know, sometimes less depending on weather, speed and tourists.

        Thank you for your words of love and kindness. You’re really good at writing when it comes to that. Touches our hearts it does.

        Hubby heated me up spaghetti and cooked the noodles for us for dinner. He also did the garlic bread. It was pretty good and finally filled the belly after the hospital food.

        Thank you Cinderella, I think I’m feeling pretty comfortable right now, and it’s a real nice surprise. I also believe it’s because our Creator really listens to us, and I am ever so grateful in so many ways because of it.

        We may not be in the hundreds, but I don’t think it matters one whit. One person’s prayer is a strong as anyone else’s and our small group is as strong as hundreds. We are all listened to equally. It’s what is in our hearts that comes across to our Creator. The one we cannot fool and really there is no reason to.

        Sometimes I feel large groups of hundreds or thousands are very powerful in their prayer. So what I’m trying to say is all of our prayers are equal when they come from an honest heart.

    A few weeks ago on this thread, I asked for prayer regarding a trying and complicated circumstance. Many of you came through with the most beautiful words. Thank you all for your kindness and prayer.

    My situation is much improved, and a large part of the burden has been resolved. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and things will be better soon.

    It is my hope that all of you who offered prayer and comfort will find this post. Again, I can’t thank you all enough – and I thank our Lord for people like you. We are truly blessed here in this tree.

    Blessings to All!

    Boozhoo,
    I would like to thank each of you individually for all of your kind words of strength and prayer, but I will have to do it after surgery. I could only get to a few this evening and it’s already past ten pm. I’m pretty tired after my hubby’s birthday this evening.

    I also spent a little bit of time reading what some of you had said to him and he told me multiple times to thank everyone here too. I think he likes me having you guys even though he’s not a prayer kind of a guy. He is one of the best, he’s just not into it. Please don’t hold it against him. I know as he’s getting older, my words are slowly working to his heart and mind. We’ve come a long way in our years together.

    He really loved that cake though, tickled pink is what I’d say on his reaction. Thank you again, Dbethd. Super cool. I got him a broncos cake last year, but it didn’t come close to yours.

    I feel good about tomorrow. I know that sounds weird, but for some reason I am. I think it was my Anti Patti’s text this evening and what she said, and then coming on here and reading all of your kind words. I had thought my Anti would’ve been in bed already, so I hadn’t expected a reply in return. You see, I literally forgot to tell anyone I was having surgery except you guys and a friend or two here where I live who help me out a lot. I must’ve sent out six texts this eve if not more.

    My excuse is I’ve been sleeping a lot in between getting the birthday ready. I actually went through the whole grocery store yesterday and then came home for a nap and then spent the whole night getting dinner in the crock pot. I also had to get up periodically to stir and check on it, take them out to cool and then put in the fridge to let the juices soak into the meats. So I guess it’s either a full day or a full nights job. When I got up at the time I was supposed to get ready to go back up town I was wiped out and in a lot of hurt, so I had to cancel.

    I had a long talk with my hubby after dinner to let him know how sorry I was not getting him any pressies. He told me before he had met me he’d go days without realizing his birthday had passed. He told me it would’ve been alright if I had skipped making him his favorite meal, he knows and can see what I am going through. He said he wouldn’t have thought twice about it and then admonished me for over doing it for him yesterday and all last night. He knows the amount of time it takes to make the meal.

    Thankfully, it turned out really good. The spaghetti sauce was so tasty and awesome. I couldn’t have made it any better then how it turned out. Lots of love and yes, a prayer is a big part of it too. I’m just happy I remembered all of the ingredients from the top of my head.

    Dokme was in heaven too. She had second helpings and kept saying thank you. She made my day. She also helped get it all on the table. She chattered the whole time, and I got hugs in between as well.

    She’s staying home from school so she can take good care of the pups and then hubby won’t have to worry about letting them out etc. He can just stay and concentrate on me and all that will be going on. She is getting all A’s, so we don’t have to worry about that. Poor thing is getting a list of chores to do to. I think he’s doing that to keep her mind off of worrying about me.

    Hubby said he had talked to her about the surgery days ago, but he forgot to mention the mastectomy part. She just learned of this tonight from me. She is sad for me, but said I was the strongest woman she has ever met or known. Now that was so sweet to hear from her. I think that’s why I was getting all of those hugs too. I know it cannot be easy on her thirteen year old heart and mind. I will do my best to help her.

    Oh, she said it was her time to help me because I’ve always been there to help her. Wow, she’s so growing up. What an Angel 😇 Girl.

    Okay, it’s 10:30pm and I really have to get some sleep.
    Love you all and thank you for everything, Bigly.
    Be well,
    Ma’iingankwe

    Reposting this from the open thread…..hope you all don’t mind
    Love you all!
    Bigmamatea, I’ve been here on CTH since our president announced…just wandered over here by a link at Townhall or breitbart. Never left.
    I’m not particulary religous or prayerful. I can’t write and offer up the beautiful prayers that others are able to do so eloquently.
    One day i just decided to click on the prayer thread and there was Ma’iingankwe in the early stages of maybe having breast cancer. Divine intervention??? most definitely.

    I’m still fighting the BC after 5 years. I’ve been clear for 2 years. But still am not out of the woods.
    I think I have helped Ma’. We’ve talked for hours on the phone and she has helped me as I have helped her. It is a study in what miracles can happen when you just click over.

    What amazingly rich friendships you can find when one opens up to all possibilities.
    Not directed at you Bigmamtea, not at all.
    I’m just so grateful for the opportunity to be here. And read everyones thoughts and prayers and genuine caring for one another.. It is a miracle.

    Hello Prayer Warriors,
    I just want to let everyone know I’m okay and resting. I just got home from the hospital about ten minutes ago. They had me overnight because of low blood pressure and cancer pain. They gave me a block for my chest that is working primarily on the top, but not the bottom, which is okay. It’s more than half for sure and should last 2-3 days. They did this right after surgery.

    I don’t know if I’m going to be reading here for a day or two or if I will jump right in. I’m so tired. They had to check me every single hour and that’s not including everyone else having to come in and do their job, so I’m exhausted. I don’t think I’ve slept more than an hour at a time since the surgery when they put me out around 11:30am yesterday.

    Thank you everyone for your good thoughts, wishes and prayers.
    Be well,
    Ma’iingankwe

        Ddanna,
        I promise to do my best when it comes to resting. However, Ella refuses to let anyone let her outside besides me. Thankfully, I am strong enough to do so, and to be honest it’s good for me to get up and walking. I just don’t like being waked up to do it with Ella an inch or two from my sleeping face.

        It’s kinda cool she’s been at my side since I’ve been home. She’s kept me very nice and warm in bed too. She lays perfectly down my side, which I love, or she will rest her head on my tummy and sigh. I know, rough life getting petted by me and both of us falling asleep.

        Cheetah hasn’t been very far away either. She will make sure I’m alright before she goes off to see Dad or whatnot. She will also sleep in the bedroom on the pup bed or on the bed if she can get there before our Ella. Ella is not happy if she can’t jump up first, but she will sleep right at my side on the floor.

        I am ever so lucky to have the both of them in my life. They are great medicine that’s for sure.

        Dokme is having boy problems, I think. She’s been mopey today and asked my friend to give her advice. Jade told her that she should ask me since I give the best advice out of all of the ladies. She told her they come to me for my opinion and guidance. Yeah, that tickled me pink and had me smile. It is true, they will come to me in two’s and three’s to hear what I will say. It must be a bit more of life experiences or something like that. Plus, I’m always honest and kind. I even helped them with their sister and Dad before they left this evening.

        I don’t mind Dokme getting advice from my friend, Jade, she should have different views shown to her to help her make up her mind. It doesn’t hurt that Jade will spoil her with a Starbucks or something since momma refuses to spend any of her money there. Frustrates the heck out of the Angel 😇 Bug, not me though, not the slightest.

        The block is definitely wearing off and my exercises are getting harder. Tomorrow I call to get physical therapy. I forgot to call this morning. I go to a good group of people and two I can call friends. It will be good to see them.

        Tonight would be awesome to sleep more than four hours, which has been my longest time so far. Hubby will do his best to get the pups out in the morning and Ella her pills, so I can sleep in. Let’s cross our fingers it works.

        I have chemo this Thursday, so I’m hoping I will be good enough to go. I think I will be. The most blood I’ve drained from the tubes and bulbs I’m hooked up to has been 40cc’s total. This is in a 24 hour period. This tells me that the clotting is working well, at least that is what they explained.

        Okay, I’m tired again, so off to bed I go, after a bit of reading of course.

        Thank you Ddanna and all of you other Warriors. I don’t know where I’d be without you all right now. I’m sure in a lot more pain etc. So thank you good Treepers and have a beautiful night,
        Ma’iingankwe

You can’ test in a hospital because they are constantly coming in and out of your room and then the nose in the hall and from the nurses station. Hopefully you were able to sleep a long time.

    My dear Prayer Warriors, please pray for my dad. He had to be rushed to the hospital today after experiencing a rapid irregular heartbeat which the doctors have identified as AFib. They’ve been giving him meds to try to regulate his heartbeat but so far they have not worked. My mom is in a panic right now and feeling very overwhelmed with everything that’s going on with both of them. He needs to be admitted for observation and more tests. Please pray that the doctors will be able to bring this under control without affecting his other conditions. Thank you all so much & God bless.

      I am so sorry Joe. I said a prayer right away, still had my phone in my hands. I prayed that the doctors will find the right medicines for your Father and to help stabilize him, so he can come home as soon as possible for your Mom and under her care.

      I prayed for the Angels to surround your Mom in warmth and love and healing and also to help calm her mind.

      I also prayed for you and asked for the Angels to watch over you as well and to help you in every way that is needed and in any way they can help.

      I love our Angels.

      Earlier this evening, my friend Abby who drives me to most of my appointments and so forth said she prayed on her rosary the night of my surgery and prayed to Saint Luke who she said was the Saint for surgeons. She isn’t a very religious person, so this meant the world to me. I also think by her telling me this during our visit was to help me with my prayers for you too. It’s amazing how our Creator works and how he teaches us for others.

      Please be well and I hope you can sleep well this evening. Sending lots of love and warmth your way,

        Thank you so much, justfacts. I never realized how many people there were with A-fib.

He’s resting comfortably in the hospital now but they haven’t been able to control the A-fib with just meds as hoped. We’re waiting for the cardiac group to decide the next step. They were supposed to come today but didn’t.

    Took Gary to the doctor for his hospital follow up. I found out that Gary also fractured the orbit of the right eye. The pain has been uncontrollable. His back and side are solid black from bruising.

    I realize there is a war on drugs and that America has an opioid epidemic but they are hurting people who really need these drugs with t heir campaign. A law was just passed that the doctor can only write a prescription for narcotics for three days for acute pain. They can write more for chronic pain. It is so hard to get Gary in and out of the car and to walk that the doctor said it wasn[t worth it to come back every three days so he gave him a much weaker non narcotic medication. He is really suffering. Please pray for his comfort so he may rest and heal.

    I also ask for prayer for myself. My back and legs are the worst they have ever been and the pain is terrible. Too much bending and lifting with the move probably aggravated them. Yesterday I could hardly walk even with my walker. Today I only got out of bed to give Gary food, drink, and medications. My legs are just saying they can’t walk.

    Prayer request for my big sister. She is in a bad relationship and needs the guy to move out her house. She works part time & he is retired. He has been spending her paycheck rather than paying the bills for the house, truck & utilities. She is living in our family home that husband #3 tried to get when he decided to divorce for another woman. I helped her financially then to save the house, now she called asking for money to get this guy to leave as he says she owes him money. She said he has been mean, I don’t think physical though. I think he is having senility issues, she said no. Oh I miss my Lil Bro as he could and did physically protect her when she had to get out of past boyfriend situations. My husband says not to give her any more money. If I do it’ll be my funds & not ours. At the moment I will talk to her tomorrow to come up with a plan on how to get him out of the house & her life. My Dad worked so hard to keep that roof over our heads & my Mom also. They had lots of struggles with floods & health issues. My sister is beyond stressed.

  39. Not really presidential on topic but wanted to share. Just came from the school where my 8th grade daughter goes. She saved the life of one of her classmates who was trying to commit suicide by choking himself to death. She struggled with him and screamed for classmates to come help her, which they did while she ran and got help. They were able to rescue the child and take him out of the school – not sure where – but I was assured he is now safe and in good hands. She called me half hysterical half really proud and happy she was able to intervene when she did. Was able to give her a really good long hug and she decided she was OK with staying the day at school. I can’t really proclaim all of this publicly due to privacy issues for the boy, but felt I just wanted to tell someone and you guys are all the first I wanted to tell. Please say a few prayers for the boy, as there are apparently some family issues at home and I have no idea what is going to happen next for him.
