So many things are starting to happen to my parents. I have been praying for my parent’s conversion for some time for they have some marital issues and unforgiveness and resentment is at the top of their problems. Then all of a sudden, and it was all of a sudden, my mom was outside working in her garden and she was stuck with severe arm pain and hand pain. She didn’t know what happened. She thought maybe she had held the shovel wrong, but then later that even, she also got arm pain in the other arm and hand. Then her knees were swollen. She was in so much pain that my dad had to dress her to get her to the doctors. The doctor said it was arthritis and gave her some steroids for the pain, it helped, but once she was done, the pain was back. My mom has a high tolerance for pain and she was in so much pain. She went back to the doctor and he ordered some blood work and she has rheumatoid arthritis. She was to go see a rheumatologist. Now she is on so many medication. Then she complained of some vision changes and they did a sonogram of her thyroid and found some nodules. They are doing a biopsy on June 27th to see if they are cancerous or benign for there are two of them. She is scared. For the most part, most nodules are benign. We pray that it is. My mom is in depression. She doesn’t want to go out, but just sits at home and watches TV. One of my sisters at least now brings her boys for my mom to watch for a couple of hours and she enjoys that, it gives her some purpose in life. Just today she was also told that she now has glaucoma as well.
My dad had prostate cancer many years ago due to his exposure to agent orange while fighting in the vietnam war. He was treated with radiation and every year has to be tested to make sure the cancer doesn’t come back. He now has blood in his urine. I don’t know if he has gone to see his doctor yet, but I hope and pray that he does not get cancer again.
Can you pray for both of my parent’s health and most of all their soul for both of them have not been to confession in over 30 years? They don’t feel that they need to.
God bless and thanks for your prayers. Remember to pray for my mom’s safe surgery on June 27th.
