Guys...I could really use your support right now

As some of you know, I had knee reconstruction yesterday to repair a torn ACL as well as some meniscus damage. You guys were extremely supportive and I greatly appreciated all responses.

This morning my sister called me and told me she needed to talk. I could tell something was wrong because she is the most light hearted and easy going person you will ever meet. After practically drawing it out of her she finally broke down and told me...the cancer has returned. As her younger brother I was trying to be so strong for her but I broke down. I am not the type of person to be at a loss for words but I don't know what to do. My world has been completely turned upside down. She just beat this six months ago. Shes the strongest person I know and it looks like she doesn't have long left.

I know this is pathetic to post online but I can't drive and I can barely move. I just need to know somebody is out there...I feel so jaded and lost right now.


Stay strong for her as much as you can, even if the

situation seems down right now, there is hope. Prayers to you and your family that she can beat this again. Your positive energy will help her, even if she doesn't show it on the surface.

Not pathetic at all. It's clear you have been through a lot in the past 6+ months and needing to know that there are others out there who empathize and support you is crucial. For what it's worth, I'm praying for you and for your sister and those in her life who are her support structure. May the grace, mercy, and comfort of the Lord be with you.

My faith is really being tested right now. I just don't understand. I don't see how this is doing anybody any good. Im sorry to hear about your mom.

Again, thanks for your response. I know I'm all over the place I'm just looking for something to grab a hold of.

The Lord is watching over you and your sister. Despite the circumstance the one certainty is that he knows your future, and especially your sister's. I am praying for you both as I just minor knee surgery and recovery takes patience. Your sister beat cancer once and with God's grace she can overcome again. Keep us posted.

when you don't know what to say, it's just best to tell her "I just don't know what to say now other than I love you and I'm here to help in any way that I can". She just needs to know that althoughI am sure that she already does. We went through this with my wife sister a couple of years ago and one of my best friend in the past couple of years. I really think they like being treated just as normally as possible. Your sister and you will be in my prayers!


My consolation when a loved one is suffering is...

Im so sorry to hear that...

I can't imagine what your family is going through. Know that I will be praying for you and that this thing IS possible to beat. Attack this thing from every possible angle. Be sure to explore CAM medicine. You may need to help give your sister strength and a positive outlook...though I know it is tough. Again I'm really sorry to hear.

Prayers for you and your family. Having gone through this with sister in law and breast cancer it may be harder to fight this time, but it can be beat. Positive and uplifting thoughts and prayers for you

even know you.

Love ya

God Bless you and your sister.

Thanks for sharing and a speedy recovery for you and your sister. We All have trials daily. Some are tougher than other, but leaning on others is a sign of strength in numbers. We use our trials to help others. That is the glory of the Lord's being shared. Peace be with you and your family. How far do you live from your sister?

with you and your sister; hoping and praying
for recovery. When we get through tough times,
it makes us stronger. But we know the hard part
is getting through them when sometimes its seems
like they just keep coming. Pray for perseverance
and know that people are thinking about you.

I just wanted to let you know you and your sister will be added to my Prayer List. I know GOD'S POWÈR as I have a little boy who has been healed, PRAISE GOD, of 2 brain tumors. GOD tells us we are created in HIS IMAGE and for HIS pleasure, that's powerful! GOD could have created a billion robots to worship HIM, but HE gave us one of the most godlike qualities I can think of, free will. Most of us choose to be our own little gods or more like our own little devils, however I feel GOD wants us to acknowledge HIS LORDSHIP and sovereinty in our lives. HE'S our FATHER, and just like a loving father, HE desires to bless his children.

GOD doesn't tell us bad things will not happen to us because, I feel, us humans have gone contrary to GOD'S guidance since Adam and Eve and the compounding effect of all of tbose years of disobedience leaves us with our world today. But we have this assurance in Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love GOD, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

I would encourage you to pray about fasting as well, however, if GOD leads you to fast, please be sure to keep it as it is a vow to GOD and GOD would rather us not vow at all rather than make a vow and break it. I have broken vows to GOD and suffered the consequences. Please know this, GOD'S WORD is true.

GOD'S WORD says in Matthew Chapter 18 Verse 18-20 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father whiich is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

GOD doesn't want us to be anxious, and trust me I worry about a lot, but he wants us to give thanks during our trials as I believe it demonstrates our faith in HIM. Once again, your sister is in my prayers as well as you. May our LORD JESUS CHRIST bless you!

Don't you ever apologize for loving your sister! Your emotions, and hers, are normal and honest. No apology needed. You just showed her how much you love her. You and your sister and family are in my prayers. Please keep us posted on how she is doing. Hope you are both feeling lots of love from your Clemson family! God bless.


Will definitely continue to pray for your sister and your entire family!

She sounds like a great big sister


Posted: Feb 27, 2016 11:19 PM
 

Be sure she knows you feel lucky to be her little brother. My little brother (49 yrs old) had a large cancerous growth removed from his chest last year. He is my main man. So far no return. Support her all you can and pray the fickle cancer disappears. Hope & prayers are with you and your sister.
