From Narrow Trail:
I am in need of prayer for an illness. For the last four years my ongoing health problems have been miss-diagnosed several times, such as Arthritis, Bronchitis, emphysema, etc. Last Thursday I had another surgery for yet another biopsy but this one confirmed cancer within my left leg and lungs. Other areas may also be effected. Lab results back in September returned with "non-malignant?" However, every month I go for an x ray to examine the recovery or progress, more bone is gone? I am now in a wheel chair. The most walking I can do is from my bedroom to the bathroom but that requires aids such as a walker or cane.
The biggest problem with this kind of disease stuff is the constant roller coaster of pain cycles that I keep going through. In September an accident that resulted in my left leg being broken put me up to 10 on the scale of from one to 10. This pain level can bounce around all over. Sometimes I cannot anticipate when the sharper kind is coming. This pain stuff is the pits. It demands attention and I find that it seriously interferes with cognitive skills such as trying to work with Apologetics. As pain settles into my body my mind goes into a blank mode where concentration, memory, logical thinking, quit working. I have been able to do a little bit of work on a Biblical and historical chronology project I have going but my ability to work with these things keeps interfering.
May I ask for your prayer help with this problem please. For example, medical types do not always listen to your needs as I have come to find out. But others are really good at what they do. I could use some help with the idea of having favor with doctors and the medical types. However, my first preference is in the miracle area. Within the next couple of weeks there will be some doctors talking to me about some not so good treatments. Because faith is the substance of things not seen (not always in line with what is showing up in physical reality), I have come to think of this situation as being accused of cancer? So if possible, I would like some help in changing some nasty looking physical appearances and pain into something more Godly, if you guys would please?
Thank you for your time and prayers. May Jesus bless and keep.
