Urgent Prayer Request

Have I used the word epidemic before now? Have I put it in capital letters (EPIDEMIC)? Have I put expletives and various symbols around it (@%**!#EPIDEMIC&&%#!?!)? Well get ready for it, because I am about to. What the hell is going on!?!?!?!?

Ok, no, refocus. There is something more important right now that the rage I have for and at this disease. And that is the fact that my aunt Disa (who has, by the way, not just given me permission to request prayers, but been quite enthusiastic about it – mind you, she is knee deep in morphine right now, post surgery) underwent surgery on Wed (which is a part of why you haven't heard anything from me lately, I have been a bit distracted), for what they thought was just a fibroid, and it turns out there was some cancer there. Seems the cancer was sort of hiding out underneath and kind of behind the fibroid (like is cancer starting to develop a brain or something, I feel like I am in some creepy Alien movie where the monsters don’t just have big scary teeth, but they actually are plotting things, too gross to consider) so they didn’t even know that is where they were going. They had to call in a cancer specialist and they spent an extra 3.5 hours over what they were expecting to. The good news is they feel confident that they got it (tentacles and all), and now we are just waiting for test results and the some suggestions for future treatment.

So here is my request: prayers that they got it all, that it was contained and not on the move, that it was low grade and early stage, that it is not an aggressive (or cunning) form of cancer (they suspect that it is either ovarian or cervical), that she recovers from the surgery easily and smoothly, that the suggestions of further treatment are humane and easy, that she has an easy time making decisions, that she gets all the help she needs with all the tasks of her life (not to mention some half decent food in the hospital), that they stop this mother f**ker in its tracks (oops, clearly my rage is close to the surface!!!). Prayers for her state of mind, may it be as peaceful as possible, and positive and optimistic. Prayers for her husband, her two daughters, her sister (my mother) and all her other family and friends, that they can dance with what is happening, be as supportive as possible, and get the support they need in order to best be able to support my aunt. Gee, I clearly want to cover all the bases. So, maybe I scale back and say… prayers they got it all, prayers for her state of mind, prayers for the highest good. And please feel free to pop her on any prayer circles or lists that you have or know of. Let’s get this precious, special lady all patched up and back to her farm.

Thank you, knowing that you are on the job helps to ease my heart! And I will keep you posted as things progress.
