Please pray for a dear Friend of mine

    A close friend of mine had lung cancer surgery in early 2010 and appeared to be free of it according to regular checkups. He, his family and I celebrated his 60th birthday June of last year aboard Volendam when we celebrated the 60th anniversary of my first ocean voyage. He was supposed to have a total knee replacement today but his pre-op exam revealed some fluid around that lung and it was postponed. I learned today that he fell last night on his bad knee, hit his head and cheek bone on concrete and badly injured them. Tests today revealed lesions in his brain and that the cancer has probably returned and metastasized. The brain lesions caused a seizure that made him fall, and seizures during the night.

    I'm utterly devastated.

    If you can spare more prayers and good thoughts, please pray for him and his family. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your prayers.

    I know many on C@ have had sadness and worry in their lives, so you'll understand when I say I feel like I've been kicked in the abdomen with this news.

    Sis, prayers are on the way.

    It sounds eerily like what our Irish Friend went through 5 years ago. :(

    Thank you sincerely for all your prayers and good wishes. His wife pleaded for prayers this morning, and was most grateful when I told her I had asked a group of friends for prayers in addition to those I was saying.

    Please keep them up as you can. I just saw the note about Denise's Mom - we all need to keep those prayers going for those in need.

    Thank you again.
