Could Use A Prayer For My Father.
« on: August 08, 2012, 04:22:35 PM »
My Father, 65 years old, who never smoked, ( I think he tried one cigarette in the early 60's got sick and never smoked again ), is already a throat cancer survivor. He has been coughing up small amounts of blood and had numerous scans and tests. This is the latest from his email.

Hello everyone,
Some of you know that earlier CT SCAN, MRI and PET SCANs have revealed two cyst-like masses in my lungs. A large one about 2"x1" in one lung which has been bleeding for the past several months, and a smaller one 1/2" X 1" in the other lung. While earlier scan's diagnosis suggested these might be benign growths, the recent PET SCAN raised some concerns that only a video inspection and a biopsy will allow a definite diagnosis. That's what's going on today. I will have a VAFBB, a video assisted flexible bronchoscopy & biopsy.  You've all heard of a colonoscopy that men over 55 should have performed every ten years, well this is the same procedure - just in another direction!

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers in the past several weeks. Your prayers for me and for Olesya are much appreciated and God has certainly heard them before in matters of my health. I also appreciate your thoughts concerning Olesya during this stressful time. As always, I am comfortable and content to know that the Lord is in control and that he has a perfect plan for my life with all things working together for good. It is this peace from the Lord I wish upon all of you now. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be yours forever.
Love & blessings,
TOM

Any additional prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You, Sincerely,

Tom W.

Got them, TW....

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

Will do, TW.... Will certainly do.

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison
