    Hi folks!

    It has been a while since I have been on Baptistboard due to a very busy work schedule (etc). However a situation has arisen about which I want to bring in as much prayer as possible.

    My mom has been diagnosed with lung cancer. They have to do tests this coming week to determine type, stage, etc, but it does not look good. At this time she is feeling fine other than sinus problems. Anyway, the oncologist said it is inoperable and they are looking for possible spread. The doctor is very good (I researched him) and I'm sure she will get the best care possible. But we all know human care can only go so far.

    Please pray that God will give everyone peace. At this time she is dealing with it better than everyone else. She is talking about seeing her parents again (etc). But it is getting the best of me. Please pray that God will perform a miracle and that if He choses not to that He will give me, and the rest of the family, the strength to deal with this.

    She is a believer. Still I'm going to have my pastor talk with her "just to be sure".

    Please pray!

    Update

    Update.

    Hello everyone and thanks for your prayers.

    The tests showed that the lung cancer is spread much more than originally thought. However up to a week ago she had little to no symptoms. Mom developed a cough about a week ago and now she is very sore thanks to all the coughing.

    She starts chemo on Monday (round 1: Mon, Tues, Wed) and then there will be a two/three week break before round 2, then another break before more scans (etc) are done. The oncologist is suppose to be one of the best in southeastern North Carolina. He is confident that chemo will, at the very least, control the cancer and enable her to live a active life. He is, of course, hopeful that remission will occur. The type of lung cancer she has usually responds well and quickly to chemo treatment. So we are certainly praying that this holds true.

    I just ask that everyone pray that God will control the cough and enable the chemo to do its job. Also pray for me and step-father as we are living in the house and with it everyday. We are both on nerve medication but the coughing is scary and the pain it is causing her is troubling. We are trying to be confident and we have faith in the Lord that things will get better. However we both know things could get worse before they get better.

    My pastor, church, and Sunday School class have been really helpful (praying, etc). I know we all lose our parents at some point, but I'm just not ready (maybe that is selfish).

    Thanks again.
