Default Prayers are needed


Folks I need some prayers for my youngest sister Katie.
She was admitted to the hospital on 3/21 (her birthday no less) and has been diagnosed with lukemia and is waiting to be transferred to a bigger hospital in Arizona with specialists.

She might need a bone marrow transplant but for now we need all the prayer power we can get for her to be strong enough to get through the days ahead.

Thanks πŸ™

Lord Jesus, you are the master of life and death.
Everything I have is yours, and I love you very deeply.
Just one touch from you restores the sick, heals the broken, and transforms the darkness.
Only you can do this
Only you

So I ask that you would be with Katie right now
May she sense your presence
May she feel your power
May she know your love
May her body be overwhelmed
With light and truth
With healing and wellness

Just as it was in the beginning
As you first intended us to be
May she be restored

I ask for your healing on her body right now

Thank you Lord that you hear my prayer
That you have overcome the world
That you hold all of heaven and earth in your loving hands
And that you have given us the promise of eternity
In our hearts forever
Amen

I'm praying that our Lord and Savior will heal your sister and that His grace will be evident to her and all around her. I will also be praying for salvation to those around her that don't already have the peace that surpasses all understanding. May God bless you and your family.

No doubt, the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Let's bring those of ten or a hundred.

Hank, the Lord bless you and His face shine upon you and yours forever. May He give you peace and heal your family and your lands and multiply them, for they and them are His and have and will glorify Him.

Hank,
I just spent 10 days of prayer with my two little churches and you were on our list. A whole lot of prayers for you and yours were sent up by me and many others every single day from March 16th through last Sunday.

My many thanks to you all.
Right now we are waiting for the test results for her bone marrow.
We are praying that it will be something else as she's AB negative and it will be very difficult to find a match for a marrow transplant

Got some encouragement yesterday.
It's leukemia for sure but it was caught early.
Transfusions and chemo for the next two weeks and then they will send her home with continued outpatient treatment.

It's going to take time to determine if she will need a marrow transplant.

For now we are praying that she will be able to endure the chemo and that there isn't any organ issues.

Thanks for the support and prayers and please keep them coming.
May God bless us all

Katie is going to need some more prayers
She's in need of a transfusion and has AB negative blood with a RH factor.

If you know anyone near Phoenix with the same please encourage them to go donate blood.
It's in very short supply due to how rare it is

I'm continuing to pray for Katie. My wife is O negative but she lives here in Oregon and she has a rare blood disorder called polycythemia and has been told she cannot donate. She produces too many platelets and red blood cells. I asked and she said she would be willing to donate if the doctors would take her blood. her disorder is not contagious so not sure why it wouldn't be usable other than the abnormalities of her condition. Thought I would throw it out there and see if you wanted to inquire of the doctors to see what they say. Not sure how urgent the need is or if they could even transport the blood that far. Take care.

Tom

Ask the Doctors about Oxygen Therapy also. A certain culture has determined scientifically that Cancer does not do well in an Oxygen Rich environment.

Prayers Again!

Thanks Tom.
I'm not able to reach my mom for some reason
It's been almost a week since I got an update on what is going on.
I'll post up any info that I get.

I'm willing to pay for expedited shipping if your wife's blood will help. I know it can be done

Tom, tell your wife thanks but the doctor's won't accept her blood due to her Polycythemia.

So the search is still on going for donors with AB negative Rh factor blood

She was able to get platelets but needs whole blood.

Thanks again to everyone for continued prayers

A few days ago her
WBC was 0.2 normal is 4-10.5
RBC 2.41 normal 4-5.5
Platelets 17 normal 140-375
Hemoglobin 7.2 normal 13-17

All of her blood components are very low
The chemo has made most of her hair fall out
Her spirits are pretty low but she's still fighting to beat the leukemia
We are still trying to find blood donors but no luck yet

Thanks for asking

Got some good news today.
Katie is in remission and they have found a marrow donor.
They are going to be doing the transplant to make sure that the lukemia doesn't come back.

I'm positive that all of the prayers have helped and I want to thank you all for being there for me and my family.

From a cancer and stem cell transplant survivor, Good Luck. It has been 21 years from my transplant to rid my body of non-Hodgkin's B-cell Lymphoma. My little sister was a perfect match, so no real difficulties. And don't worry about the stuff you can't control, it will drive you crazy.
