Prayer Requests for 2 Family Members in Critical Care

You've all been such wonderful friends and constant prayer companions and we're so grateful.  Now here I am once again requesting prayers from you.

First is an update on my MIL.  They tried to let Nadine breath on her own late yesterday afternoon, as a test, and it didn't go well at all.  She got distress immediately and panicked.  Her blood pressure went up to 214 after just a few moments.  The doctors were surprised because she had looked so good.  They are still trying to get the swelling down.  She recovered from the other infections and today they told us she has a new one.

Now to another family member.   I just learned yesterday that another one of my cousins is in critical care in another hospital in town with a a muscular disease called Myasthenia Gravizs.  I don't know anything more than that it affects all the muscles in the body.  He is now on a ventilator and a feeding tube.  He just found out about the disease about 6 months ago.  I've been told that he also has colon cancer.  His chemo was suppose to start 2 days ago.  They can't do that now.  

PLEASE say a prayer.  It would me so much to me and even more to his family.   I'm sure they could all use your prayers.  I've just received the Christmas blessing of being able to reconnect with his children via the internet.  My heart is full!  His oldest daughter was only 3 years younger than me and we grew up as close cousins, childhood friends.

Thank you for reading this and giving my family the the blessings of your good thoughts and prayers.
Love, Hugs and Christmas Wishes...Tracy

  8. Sending prayers and positive thoughts to your cousin and mother in law, and of course you and the rest of your family too. *hugs* I truly hope that everything will be looking better soon.

  9. Hi Tracy! Here is my prayer for you. Father in Heaven, I thank you for allowing us to come boldly to your throne with our requests. Lord You ARE the Great Physician. You spoke this world into existence. All it takes is one word from you and these precious people will be healed. Lord, according to your Word if we abide in You and Your Words abide in us, then anything we ask shall be done unto us. You tell us by Your stripes we are healed. I am stepping out in faith and calling on JESUS' Name for the healing of Tracy's Mother-in-law and cousin.

    I have literally seen you heal cancer, I have been there and seen you straighten the back of a precious Child of God from scolihosis (spelling). Father I know that there is NO job to big or too small for You to handle. I also know that there is POWER in the Name of JESUS. I ask You for the Healing of Tracy's mother-in-law and cousin in Jesus' Name, AMEN
