    We have a VERY dear friend (Scott) and his wife (Debbie). well over the years we have gotten to be VERY close wit Scot's mom and Step dad, they have treated my kids like their own Grand Kids and my Hubby and I like their kids.
    Well we learned last week the Jay has inoperable Melanoma cancer. He had some spots removed last year and they said they had it all. Well this year he went for a check up and found out that it has spread to the liver, heart and eyes. They have only given him 3-6 months to live and if they do a very invasive chemo treatment they might be able to prolong his life a little longer.

    Well the chemo and all was to start next week, but last night he could not breath and they called the Dr, and he had to get right to the hospital (it is a cancer hospital in Denver). They got 1-1/2 liters of fluid out of his lungs. He really really needs prayers and so does his wonderful wife Marilyn.

    Thank you so much. :pray: :pray:

    Prayers sent, a terminal disease is so very hard to deal with and no matter how long you know you have with a loved one, there is never enough time to tell them you love them. I pray that your loved ones know that they are not alone and that they have the strength and power of prayer to get them through.

    I know how hard this is first hand. :hug:

    Prayers being sent their way. :pray: :pray:

    I know how that feels. Someone that is close to me had that in one of their eyes. Luckily they caught and stopped it in time.

    I will be keeping them in my thoughts and prayers. :pray:

    Re: PRAYER REQUEST PLEASE (UPDATE)

    Not good.

    We received a call and he was watching the Rockies Baseball game on Sunday with his lovely wife when he seized. Marilyn called 911 and they flight for life him to the closest hospital. He has not woke yet. They are trying to wake him up just so Marilyn can say good Bye. They have a breathing tube in and that is all that si keeping him alive for now. He has a DNR after 72 hours, so tonight will be 48 hours.

    He told us he would be at my daughters graduation because he had to see his other Grand daughter graduate. He has been like a Grand father to my kids and like a father to us.

    He was told he had 3-6 months and it looks like he will loose the battle this week and it has only been a month. I just ask if you would pray for his lovely wife Marylin and the family. It happened so darn fast.

    I am having a really hard time with this also. He was such a godly person, so I know I will see him again someday.
