    i'm afraid this one is simple, and straight to the point.. one of ours is dying.. in the middle of the worst time in his life, he's excepted an offering of prayer.. That cross on the avatar matters, i'm not ordained, and i'm praying the Lord guides every word i type.. that these may be his words in prayer and not mine..

    Outside of prayer the only way we can help is to understand how hard this is for him.. Imagine dealing with the worst news you can hear, and then having your "escape" taken away by being treated differently.. pretty simple solution.. We all treat him the same.. Here's what i know

    Some months ago i posted a thread about having good news with my prostate c..and that a bleak diagnosis after failing radiation twice had been revised due to to new treatment response..

    Aces and eights commented, then sent me a pm.. he was going through a major battle with cancer, and wishing me the best. it also started a friendship.. four days ago i "had a feeling" and sent a pm.. Bob wrote back that he had just finished his worst round of chemo.. and that the C/T was scheduled for the following day.. yesterday he sent the results, and they're the worst news one can imagine.. The oncologists have given our friend a limited time on this earth.. Bob and his Wife are in the grip of pure terror... Will you all join me in this prayer.

    Lord there are some things we know..We know that bad things happen to good people..We know that life has hurdles, and barriers that we can't begin to understand.. We also know your promise not to give us more than we can handle.. Father, our friend Bob and his Wife have more than they can handle, please somehow turn this around for them, that the Doctors were wrong, and that they can grow old together..

    Please hold Bob and his family in the palm of your loving hands, and let them know how sorry we all are for their suffering..

    Father we pray that this is not Bob's time to leave this earth, that you might let him stay with us a while more, and only take him if your grand plan makes him needed in heaven more than he's needed here..

    In your holy, and forever name... amen

    I have a dear friend who was diagnosed with, and thankfully beat, P.C.
    Prayers from me, definitely.

    Amen. God bless you and your family, Bob. If you need anyone to talk with, I'm here my friend. Keep your head up and think positive. You can beat this!
