Prayers needed
I am a strong believer in the power of the prayers and positive thoughts of my cyber friends from all over the world, and I am here asking for some help from the greatest group of people that I know....

I have been scarce here for a few weeks - - as the reminder on the top of the page is telling me.... It is for a good/bad reason.... My younger daughter, started having back pain while on a business trip to Reno last Month..... Several visits to ER's and then to her doctor here resulted in a midnight ambulance ride from Colorado Springs to Denver, a multitude of tests, an exploratory surgery and a diagnosis of Cancer..... She has a tumor at the base of her spinal cord - where it becomes a bunch of nerve endings that send signals out to the body to make 'things work'...... The tumor is firmly intermeshed with the bundle of nerves, and as soon as she recovers from the surgery, she will be taking a series of radiation treatments... The prognosis is optimistic, and I have given up searching on Google - - my head is full of way too much knowledge......

She is my 'baby' - - even though she will be celebrating her 40th birthday, two days after Christmas.... Her recovery from the surgery has had its ups and downs... We feel that she is in very good hands.... We go back to Denver on Tuesday for a few more tests and a visit to her surgeon... Her radiation treatments will be handled here in the Springs....

Please send some positive thoughts and prayers when you think about it.... She, her hubby, and her two beautiful daughters, plus her mom, would really appreciate it.....

Thank you all so much.....

Re: Prayers needed
I will definitely keep you, your daughter and family in my nightly prayers, Pat. :hug::hug:

Keeping a positive outlook and attitude is vital here, as I'm sure you already know. I am pleased to hear that the prognosis is good and would appreciate you keeping us all updated on how she (and you) are doing.

My shoulders are always here for you, Pat. You've been a great friend to me over the years and I want to be there for you. I've PM'd you my cell number if you feel the need.

As I've learned so many times going through difficult situations myself - if God brings you to it, He will always bring you through it! :hug::hug:

Re: Prayers needed
I am praying for her as we speak...

remember to keep yourself rested and relaxed. Get sleep and time away from the situation. Don't forget to eat either. She needs a firm, stable shoulder to lean on and those three things go 95% of the way in helping you continue to provide it.

Believe it or not, a number of people forget those three simple steps... especially eating. It is amazing.

God bless, I will pray for you as well.
