Second Prayer Intention for po18guy - continued


#1

**Originally Posted by po18guy: **

Today, I found out more about the stem cell transplant I am considering. First, I will have a bone marrow biopsy and spinal tap to test the marrow and cerebro-spinal fluid for current cancer activity. Then, I will have a “Hickman line” implanted in my chest (beside the already implanted “Power Port” through which I have received chemo and my current experimental drug) to harvest the stem cells from my blood. I will have to move closer to the transplant center, since I am too far away. 30 minutes is the limit and I am an hour away. Then, I will have either a radioactive isotope and intense chemotherapy infusion, or total body irradiation, which will kill my bone marrow. My blood will then die, as there is no bone marrow to produce blood cells. I will be totally dependent upon transfused blood from donors. I must live in isolation in the hospital for 10-12 days, since I will have no immune system. Once released, I will need to live for three months in the relocated housing. I will need to be re-inoculated against all common childhood diseases (polio, rubella, mumps, etc.) since I will have essentially a baby’s immune system. I must then live for the next year in relative isolation so as not to be exposed to disease. And, this is a best-case scenario, since a sudden resurgence of the cancer will cause an emergency plan to go into effect. I cannot undergo the transplant until 2010, when insurance coverage will apply. So, I told doctor that he must keep me not only alive, but cancer free until then. So, life has just become slightly more complicated - the Lord wisely forcing me to trust Him alone. As always - ALWAYS, I thank the Lord for your prayers, as they are the thread by which my life hangs. God bless each and every one of you!


How much of scripture is man willing to disregard in the search for a faith which is acceptable to him?

Lord, please help Jim who is so dependant on you for everything, as we all should be. Comfort him with your love and the love of family and friends, and help him to be well again. At least let him be well enough to be supported by the medical treatments he has available to him. Please, keep Jim strong in faith, hope, and love and always give him the consolation of knowing that you are right beside him loving him through his sufferings. I offer up all my daily Masses and rosaries for Jim’s health and for his wife. Keep them strong and give them the grace of perseverence to keep them faithful and grateful for just being the children of so loving a Father who has blessed them so abundantly with His graces. Never let Jim or his wife be separated from you. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.

St. Luke, patron of doctors, guide the healing hands of po18guy’s physicians as they work to heal him, and pray that, by the power of Christ and your intercession, he may be healed of his ailments.
