Thread: My Wife Has Leukemia

  1. #1

    My Wife Has Leukemia

    We just found out today (December 23) that my wife has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). She's been struggling with back pain and anemia for a long time now, but nothing ever showed up on any bloodwork. Her platelets were dangerously low (at an 8...anything below 10 is critical and risks spontaneous internal bleeding).

    We don't know much else right now other than life sucks. I have to tell our two kids that mommy won't be here for Christmas and I don't know what to say. Some of you have seen our little family on my wife's youtube channel that I posted here... I don't know what to do. I can't lose my wife. Some Christmas, huh. I am told she will be starting radiation and chemo immediately.

    She is 37, and she already beat late stage papillary thyroid cancer 11 years ago right when I got back from my second tour in Iraq... she went literally through hell, massive neck surgeries and radiation, to beat that and we thought we were done with this crap... to get this news now, two days before Christmas, is too much for us.

    Send us whatever prayers you have. We need everything.

    Wish I would have bought a few hundred Bitcoins in 2011 so I wouldn't have to worry about paying the massive bills that are about to drop in my lap...

    Sorry I just needed to vent and you all listen when I need it.

    Keep us in your thoughts. I will update when I can.

    Prayers to you and your wife. My wife is an internal medicine doctor and I'll tell you that they can obtain good results using chemo and radiation. Find a good oncologist and just trust them. I know many give modern medicine a bad rap but really, there's nothing "alternative" that does better and in many cases you waste precious time trying them.

    Prayers for you all.

    Psalms 55:22
    Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.

    Psalms 9:9
    The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

    Psalms 27:4-5 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock.

    Psalms 46:1
    God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

    1 Peter 5:6-7
    Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
    Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

    Indeed. The population here is thin in recent times but we'll help how we can.
    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.

    Prayers said,, and will be.

    and get second opinions. My first prayer is that they are wrong. and they often are.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    This, they were wrong about mine, unfortunately it was the other way around. Awful news.

    Praying for her recovery and for your strength to help her through it.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Will be included in my prayers. Keep those of us here in the loop. If money is extremely tight, please take a look into clinical trials. Do a search of worldwide trials on clinicaltrials.gov . Give your kids lots of hugs.

    so sorry to hear and pray for courage/faith for both of you.

    I am so sorry. I can't imagine the horror of it all.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Praying for you and your wife.

    Two years ago today was the last time I saw not.your.average.joe before he was diagnosed with stage 4 leukemia.
    God has carried me through my trials and my prayer is that He carries you and yours through your current trials and whatever trials may arise.

    Don’t worry
    Matthew 6:25-27 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
    Luke 12:24 Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds!
    If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land.
    Ron Paul
