I have two very dear friends who could use your prayers, good energy, nekkid dancing – whatever you’ve got in your arsenal right now.
I cannot give a lot of details as I don’t have their permission.
First, pray for A, 25, and having surgery tomorrow for testicular cancer (folks with boys, teach them to check!). A is an amazing guy (I want to type kid, but he’s not a kid) and he’s been fighting a hard battle. This surgery will determine what’s next and we’re all praying that nothing is next – that this is the end of treatment and that he’s cured. His parents and siblings are stressed and exhausted and trying to be calm … you can imagine. Keep A in your thoughts tomorrow, please.
Next, pray for H. H is 8 and has had seizures since she was born. She’s in the hospital now and they’re trying to figure out what exactly is going on. Can you imagine, as a parent, waiting 8 years for an accurate diagnosis? This new doctor seems great and H is fine, but is confined to the hospital for a couple more days until they can really see what all is going on with her.
I’ve been friends with A’s and H’s moms since we all met on a pregnancy board in 1999. We’ve shared our trials and triumphs over the years. I hate that I’m so far away from both of them and that their families are so worried and stressed right now.
