    Default A Prayer Request For Jim

    ((((((Hugs to All)))))) ~

    I come to you asking for prayers, healing thoughts, and positive energy for my beloved husband, Jim, the worldís most wonderful Dad.

    Jim has a 2 1/2 inch mass on his left lung, lower lobe. Following a CT scan last week, Jim met with our pulmonologist (he treated Michael during his final illness and has treated Jon several times in ICU). He told Jim that he believes that the mass is cancerous.

    On Friday, 1/13, Jim will have a needle biopsy of the mass, performed at our hospital. If all goes well, he will return home in the afternoon, and I will provide his care. If there are complications, Jim will be in the finest hospital in our area, with state of the art technology.

    Weíre trying to process all of this, which seems sudden but was expected in some ways, given Jimís symptoms. We did our best to prepare for this diagnosis, while keeping our prayers on the answer being anything else other than cancer.

    Since you donít know Jim, let me share a few things about him with you.

    Jim and I met when Jim arrived as Michaelís school bus driver in 1992. We became friends. We fell in love. We married. Weíve been together for 25 years this year, and during that time, we have only been apart for 5 days, when he returned to England for his motherís funeral in 1999.

    Jim is a devoted dad, and he has provided every kind of care to Michael and Jon, he has been at their bedside in the hospital with every crisis, throughout the night. He isnít afraid to do anything ~ suction, change a trache in an emergency, whatever is needed, heís there and ready to do it. He always remains calm and collected, helping me to do the same.

    Within a couple of minutes of being in the presence of Jim and Jon, you will know how much they adore each other. Jimís illness will impact Jon severely, and we need to protect him as much as possible from this stress.

    Jim has served Jon and Michael, me, our family, our friends, strangers ~ he is gentle, loving, caring, compassionate person. And he has a fantastic sense of humor. He is British.

    I canít be in two places at once, of course, so we have to rely on our dearest friends to help us through this crisis. There are many things to consider, and my mind is spinning constantly thinking of what we need to do and when we can get it done.

    We thank you for your prayers, your love and support. We appreciate all of the positive energy we can get right now.

    Life is precious and precarious.

    God Bless You ~

    Love & Light,

    Mom to Jon, 49, (seizure disorder; Gtube; trache; colostomy; osteoporosis; hypothyroid; enlarged prostate; lymphedema, assorted mysteries) and Michael, 32, (intractable seizures; Gtube), who were born with an undiagnosed progressive neuromuscular disease and courageous spirits. Our Angel Michael received his wings in 2003 and now resides in Heaven. Our Angel Jon lives at home with me and Jim, the world's most wonderful Dad.
