My brother

Post by Nicki » Fri Apr 28, 2017 7:15 am

Hi! Been a while since I've been here - but it's been really crazy lately. I would like to ask y'all to pray for my brother; we found out on February 14 that he has bladder cancer. He's already had surgery to remove the tumor but now he has to followup with chemo and radiation. His kidneys are weak because he was in kidney failure (from the cancer) in February and although they are functioning on their own now, they still are not healthy. And I know chemo will be rough on his kidneys as well. The cancer has not spread through the lymphatic system yet but according to the type of tumor he had, they consider him as stage 4. He has a rough road but I believe that God will heal him completely!! He is only 40 years old, engaged to be married later this year, and has a 13 year old daughter so he has alot to fight for!

Hi, it has been a while. I haven't been on here much myself. :(
And I'm sorry to hear about your brother. I will definitely say a prayer for him and your family. Praying now so I don't forget.

I forgot to update this post! Soooo....God completely healed my brother! There for a while it wasn't looking good - the cancer was starting to spread and the doctors said that there was no hope for him to be healed...they were just prolonging his life. Well they were WRONG! He has had several clear PET scans so he is now in remission :) Giving God praise!

Praise God. When I was scrolling through looking for a topic to try and tag you in I saw this one and, well had a sad face. I didn't dare say "how's he doing" because of that possibility that it went the other way. Felt awkward.
I am so glad to hear that news though.

Yeah at that time it really wasn’t looking good at all. I was trying to keep my faith up but it was really hard sometimes. But now he has an awesome testimony!
