    I debated a long time about posting a prayer request. I didn’t want to burden anyone with my problems. I thought that I should stay strong and handle things on my own. I come from a very long line of stubborn, strong-willed and private people, but I think the time has come for me to ask for help. Things are getting harder to handle on my own without the strength that prayer can achieve.
    My family has had a really tough year. My daughter decided to move to her fathers for a while, but luckily she came back. Unfortunately, her father is taking it out on the both of us, because she came home. She was also recently diagnosed with Epilepsy. She is taking so much medicine, but it doesn’t seem to help. I took her last week to have an MRI and EEG. We’re waiting for the results. My Dad’s cancer came back on his face. We took him to have it removed, yesterday. He couldn’t have the surgery because a knot had just appeared on his neck. The doctors did a biopsy and CT scan instead. I got a call from my Mom today telling me to come over. I knew what it was. I called Vern(vlparrish) and he came home and drove me over. My Dad said that the doctor called and told him that it didn’t look good. The knot was a lymph node. The cancer had spread to his throat, tongue and around behind his ear. It may have spread farther, but he only had the Ct scan on his neck/head. He told us that the doctor was trying to get him in for surgery ASAP. We should hear something by Monday. My Dad said that the doctor also mentioned chemo and radiation. Then he said that he wouldn’t take them. He didn’t want to suffer. He lost his younger brother( Handlonhardpack’s father) earlier this year. I’ve managed not to cry(except for one slip on the ride home), but the thought of my dad giving up(at only 54yrs old) has me mad and scared. Sorry for the long winded story, but if I could please ask for your prayers for good results for my daughters tests and for my Dad’s health, I would truly appreciate it.

    My families Heart and prayers go out to you and your loved ones. My son is now 5 and has been diagnosed with epilepsy for around 2 years or so. If I can help with any questions PM me. There is no shame in crying. It may take a stong person to hide thier emotions but it takes a stronger person to show them!

    God Bless and keep your family strong.

    There is absolutely nothing our GOD can't do. His Grace is sufficient.

    Take your troubles and lay them down at the Feet of JESUS, then walk away. Don't ever go back and pick them back up, saying, well I think I can handle that now.

    Faith is what you and your Family need right now. Prayer does work, but you must believe in your heart. GOD already knows what you and your Family needs are. He is right there beside you waiting for you to call on his name.
    I lift up your Daughter and your Dad in prayer. May GOD touch them with his mighty healing hand, and may he give comfort to all your Family...

    Remember, GOD is in control of ALL thing...

    Kelli,
    I am sorry to hear of the situation with your daughter and father.
    Don't ever hesitate to ask for prayers. That is what family is for and we are your BOC Family!
    Most of all, believe, trust, and place all your faith in God. Turn these burdens over to Him. He will not give you more than you can handle. He knows what is best and He will see that the best is done even if that may be what we would not choose.
    Please let me know if I can lend a shoulder, or a listening ear, etc. My thoughts and prayers are sent for you and your family.
    Hang in there sis.
    Hugs,
    Barb

    I want to thank all of you for your kind words and your thoughts and prayers.
    I woke up around 6am this morning and finally allowed myself to cry. Vernon woke up and held me. Bless his heart. He drives me up a wall, but he was there when I needed him.

    I found out, today, that Dad's got 2 types of cancer. The melanomia on his face and a different type around his throat, tongue, etc. I'm going to try and leave my worries in God's hands. I know that he won't give me more than I can handle.

    Again.....THANK YOU.

    P.S. Here's a pic of my parents, clowning around at my Aunt's house in July.
