Default Prayers requested

I don't usually ask for them except in extreme circumstances but my other half Vicky Nix has been diagnosed with liver cancer and can use all the help she can get. The doctor doesn't know what stage until more tests are done and I'm taking her for a biopsy on Thursday.

Aww man that's heartbreaking. Definitely praying for Vicky and early detection with the biopsy. God be with both of you.

Thank you. She's 65 and doesn't have a very strong immune system so every little bit helps as far as I'm concerned.

Never pictured you being an old bugger...

Prayers, buddy - for her and for your strength to hold her up during this tough time.

Prayers for Vicky, yourself and loved ones during this time. If anyone can reverse a diagnosis and or bring healing, God can. No question.

Thank you everyone.

Rocketsan, I'm younger than her but my spring chicken days are well behind me. My 40s are in the rear view mirror and getting further away...

The biopsy is in a little over twelve hours. I hate driving to Memorial Hospital in South Bend from deep in SE Mishawaka but I hate driving around SB in general anyway...

Thank you.

As an aside, my one cousin and her family live in Des Moines.

Recent update: It's operable and she's going to go to IU hospital down in Indy to have a hunk of her liver removed on Wednesday. Took her to her doctor today and he said based on what he sees from test results like CAT scans, MRIs, blood work, etc. that it's not that bad but some of it has to be removed.

I can't believe there isn't a surgeon in this area that can do it, especially at the monstrosity that St. Joe Hospital is there off of Douglas Road but whatever gets the job done.

Small victories brother. I know the battle ahead will be trying for her. Glad to hear that there is some good news with her condition. Hang in there for you both. God Bless.

Back to St. Joe hospital in Mishawaka. Too weak to stand and make it to the bathroom, no appetite for anything. Had to call the EMTs out again to take her.

Talked to her sisters earlier this morning and the doctors say there's nothing more they can do. She's terminal and they say she has a day or two left.

Thank you. I just can't stop crying, I've been with her almost twenty years and this is a very bitter pill to swallow.

I am so sorry, I know it is trite but if there is anything I can do to help aside from prayer please let me know. I can't imagine.

Oh no. I am so sorry to hear this about Vicky. I cannot imagine what you're facing down at this time. There aren't any words that are going to be able to take away this terrible crushing pain and sadness you folks are experiencing. You two are in my prayers sir. God Bless....
