An Update on Aunt May and a Prayer Request

It's late and I'm just going to give everyone a quick update on Aunt May. I made an error in my previous post. Aunt May's cancer doctor wanted her to have a Bone Scan, not an MRI. She had it today. It's unbelieveable that he got her into the local hospital so soon. She will get the results the next time she goes to the cancer hospital for her consultation.

Aunt May is tired and was resting when my mother called her today. She said she's been overly tired. Her husband has to go for surgery on his arm on Wednesday. He has skin cancer and he didn't have it taken care of soon enough. I'm not sure how they will make out, but I'll offer to drive him to and from the hospital if needed.

Please keep both of them in your prayers.

I will post more tomorrow. I've been busy with the boys since last Friday, as their parents both had to work the weekend and today. We had lots of fun tonight and did a little Halloween shopping at the dollar store.

My dear friend, Ann, from Hootin' Anni's has a prayer request. Her friend PJ and her husband John were directly in the path of Hurricane Ike. Anni received an email from PJ and this is what she had to say:

"We heard we can park on hwy and walk in from there (about 2 miles) entrance only with our IDs so that is the plan tomorrow. I have seen some photos but none of our specific house, after seeing those photos it may be just was [as?] well. The debris is mind boggling! I just keep telling's only's only stuff. I'll check in when I can, a couple of my coworkers have power now so can use the computer there and one has even offered a room for us and our cats so we can be close to work on our home until it is safe to be there. I have to tell you, it blows me away that we really got hit this time. I suppose it will sink in when I am cleaning up the dead fish and chasing out the damn snakes from my little house. I just never really believed it would happen, you know?"

After requesting prayer, Anni had this to say about her friend, PJ:

Today, she and her husband will drop off her cats at a friend's house and then the two will go farther down to their exit and walk into the subdivision. I ask that you take this graphic [click on it to open in a new window -then save & add to your blog], pass it on for a continual circle of prayer and strength -with your prayers that they have a home and find that there is not much damage.

So, please take the graphic at the beginning of this portion of the post and prayer for PJ and John. They are certainly facing one of the most difficult times in their lives. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. sending prayers for Aunt May...

  2. Boy, Mary -as my grandmother would have said, "When it rains, it pours." And that sure does seem to be the case with your Aunt May and her husband right now. Hope they are both able to deal with the medical issues as well as possible and that you and your Mom too are able to keep helping them. I'm sure many here will be keeping them -and you -in thoughts and prayers.

  3. oh dear poor Aunt May! Praying for her here :-)

  5. Mary, I'll be praying for your Aunt and Uncle, the family as well.

    I love your autumn theme!

  6. Hope the bone scan will not be too bad. It's always just so hard to watch a loved one suffer so.

    I'm back this morning for a request...a prayer request. You can find details on my Tuesday blog. Thanks and have a happy day today my friend.

  7. Yes, I know about this bone scan...I took Paw Paw to get one.
    His was freezing and they wouldn't give him a blanket. I told him it might have been kind of hard to do a fully body exray if he was covered from head to toe. :)

    I am glad that God has given your family you....sounds like God is using you to be His hand in their lives right now. Don't forget to take care of yourself and get plenty of rest.
    Love ya girl

  8. Thanks for the update. They have too much going on in their household. I'll pray for them.

  9. Thank you so much Mary, for joining in the circle of prayer for P J and her husband John.

    I failed to mention that her husband has a heart condition and while he was boarding up their home to evacuate last week, when they arrived up in Northern Texas, he wasn't doing's so stressful.

    Thanks again my friend. You touched my heart with your caring and loving gesture.

  10. My prayers continue for Aunt May...she's gone through so much already:-( With the added worry of her husband's skin cancer, it's no wonder she's tired! My prayers are with both of them.

    I'm going to go visit Anni after I leave my comment here. How awful that her friends were hit by the hits close to home when you know someone who has been affected.

    Have a wonderful day, dear Mary. xoxo

  15. I love the ‘festive’ way your blog looks. You’ve done a lovely job redecorating. I read your update with interest … seems like you were quite busy with MANY activities … most sounded pleasant. I’m still praying for your aunt … your mom … you & your whole family … and Hootin’ Anni’s friends too.
    Hugs and blessings,

  16. Prayers for Aunt May and your uncle and for all the people suffering from Ike's devastation.

  21. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
