    Our member 155gunner found out nearly two weeks ago that his wife has terminal breast cancer. She had surgery last week and is doing better than expected, but it was more of a quality of life operation than anything. I am asking that y'all pray for both Andy and his family. They are A+ people and good friends.

    I had cancer myself. The prayers of others meant a lot to me. I too will join with the rest of you in prayer.

    The prayers are much appreciated. My wife is feeling better and her spirits are up but the prognosis is still grave. Not much else to say except keep praying. Miracles do happen. Thanks.

    Prayers sent again 155gunner.

    Also, If you'll could please say a prayer for my dad who is in the hospital since last Friday with pneumonia. He has esphogial cancer, has been through chemo, but this pneumonia is kicking his butt at the moment. His oxygen level in his blood was down to 65, but he's on oxygen in the hospital and it has brought it up to 95.

    He passed out in my arms walking back to his bed from the bathroom, due to his oxygen level getting low from moving around. It took a couple nurses and myself to get him into a wheel chair to get him back into his bed. They checked his oxygen level and it went down to 80, but was able to get it up to 89 within a short time as he lay in bed.

    I really hate to see him this way, because he is such a great dad with a kind and gentle soul. You wouldn't think he's a Korean War vet from the front lines and a 82nd Airborne Paratrooper, just from being around him. It's hard to tell at this point if he's gonna be able to come back home anytime soon. The one nurse could tell he still has fluid in his lungs, but I'm hoping that they can get that out soon so he can get some strength back.

    Sorry for the long winded words, but he means a lot to me even though he's my stepdad. He's been there for me and the family through thick and thin, hell or high water, and I feel very fortunate to have had him in my life these last 25+ years.
