Dear Lord,

 

Labs are due again shortly. TY that the past few mos. the results have been pretty good, with just a few values being off. May this month's labs come back with good results. May this kidney work well for the rest of my life.

 

It's getting harder to manage the snowballing disease cascade. I pray for relief + healing from the hip/knee arthritis. I would likely not be a candidate for a hip replacement, + am not even sure it would be a good idea to do such a surgery in view of the muscle wasting in the hips + elsewhere. I pray I can remain independent till I die, according to Your will. Help me to manage all these problems in a way that glorifies You.

 

I cont. to pray for healing from the reflux/ulcers/strictures/esophagitis. Protect me from cancer. TY that it looks like I'll be able to have a hiatal hernia repair soon. May that allow for healing to occur.

 

TY for all You have done for me. In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY for protecting the precious gift of a kidney. So far labs have been fairly stable. Another set will be drawn in a few days. May the results be good + may this kidney work well for the rest of my life.

 

I cont. to pray for all the other health issues. May the upcoming surgery finally resolve the problem with reflux, ulcers, Barrett's, + a precancerous esophagus. May the strictures disappear + not recur.

 

TY that the neuropathy pain hasn't been bad, but the arthritis, weakness, + joint pain really hamper a more active lifestyle. Help me to push past this + stay as active as poss.

 

I really pray for better sleep. Even with a CPAP machine I struggle with insomnia. Please heal whatever is causing this.

 

May there be no complications with the surg in April. May all go well.

 

TY for Your grace + always being there for me.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Praises + thanks that overall the March labs were good. I still have that pesky low sodium but I'm not really worried about that. I drink such lg. amts of water that can lower it.

 

The latest endoscopy showed there is still esophagitis + it still looks pretty bad in the lower 1/3 of the esoph. It sounds like there are 2 strictures. He dilated one, but it never lasts. I pray the hiatal hernia repair will stop acid from refluxing up + irritating the esoph. so it may heal. I also pray the biopsies will be negative, w/o dysplasia or cancer.

 

I pray for healing + reversal of the hip  arthritis. Restore the lost muscle + nerves in my hips, legs, feet, hands, arms. May I remain mobile + independent as long as possible, hopefully till I die. May B + I both be protected from dementia.  TY for minimizing the neuropathy pain. Pls relieve the arthritis pain.

 

May this kidney work well for the rest of my life.

 

TY for Your many blessings.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Last month's labs were pretty good + I thank You for that. I pray the ones drawn Weds. will be good too, esp. since I have surgery Thursday to repair the hiatal hernia. May this surgery finally resolve the reflux issue + allow the ulcers in the esophagus to heal. May the precancerous cells self-destruct + new, healthy tissue form in the esophagus.

 

TY again for this kidney. May it work well for the rest of my life.

 

A big concern is the severe arthritis in my L hip + knee. I don't think I'm a candidate for a hip replacement. It is really interfering with my mobility. I pray for this to improve dramatically + for my balance to improve as well so I can stay independent. Bless the ortho app't I have on 5/8. I also pray for relief from this chronic pain in the hip/knee + from the neuropathy. May my muscles/nerves be restored so I will have better strength.

 

TY for the many times You have delivered me from catastrophic health issues. I praise Your holy name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY that this month's labs were pretty good. Whew! It's always a concern, wondering how long a transplant will work. But You have been so good to me. The CPA who did my taxes told me his SIL just got her 3rd kidney transplant but it isn't working. Now she needs another one + she's only in her 40s!

 

I pray for guidance re: the severe arthritis in the L hip. I probably need a hip replacement but d/t the muscle wasting I don't know if I'd be a candidate. Give the orthopedic doc wisdom + guidance when I see him. Help me to do all I can to strengthen my body + help the muscles that are there to get stronger so they can support + stabilize the hip.

 

As usual, I pray for all the other myriad complex health issues. TY for Your grace.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

I pray for protection of the kidney, esp. after the trauma of surgery + fairly long anesthesia time. May it not be harmed + may it work well for the rest of my life. TY again for this gift of life. I don't ever want to have to go back on dialysis again.

 

I see an orthopedic specialist soon re: the hip arthritis. It is very severe + affects my walking. I pray I can get another round of PT. The chiropractor thinks the doc will say I need a hip replacement, but d/t many issues I don't think I'd be a candidate. Give me wisdom in making a decision + give the ortho doc great wisdom + knowledge as to what I can do to improve my mobility.

 

TY for the many plants + herbs You have made available to us that help problems like this w/o causing side effects. TY for directing me to ones that don't hurt the kidney. Help me to cont. to grow in knowledge about these things. Please block pharmaceutical companies from lobbying to take natural supplements away from us unless we buy them from them after they've messed with them so they can patent them.

 

I cont. to pray that the surgery I just had will allow the esophagus/ulcers to heal so the Barrett's can be treated. Please cont. to protect me from cancer. I've had so many close calls. TY for always pulling me out of the fire.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

I pray for protection of the kidney from adverse effects of long-ish anesthesia. I've noticed some changes + am concerned. Part of the problem is the swelling in the abdomen + pelvis can make it harder for blood to reach the kidney. May this improve rapidly, + may the kidney be fine.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY for protecting this 2nd kidney transplant thus far. May the next set of labs show it is continuing to work as well as before. May the long anesthesia time for the hiatal hernia repair not have slowed it down. I tho't I noticed some changes that concerned me but I think it is behaving more normally now.

 

I ask for special prayers + guidance on what to do about the severe L hip arthritis. I expect to be told I need a hip replacement but am concerned about how brutal the surgery would be when there is so little muscle to work with. Plus there is the long-term neuropathy to deal with-would a replacement work? What do I do about all the stairs where I live? Would I be able to wait till next May if I could find a first floor apt? Please show me what to do, + give the ortho doc great wisdom + care in the decision he makes. I am getting very tired of the pain + the hindrance to mobility, but don't want to make the wrong decision.

 

I pray the hiatal hernia repair worked + the esophageal ulcers will finally heal. Please cont. to protect me from cancer. I've come so close several times, but You have provided a way out + I am very grateful.

 

Help me to get stronger + build muscle. It is very hard with the polyneuropathy.

 

Give me strength, wisdom, discernment, clarity of vision, great faith + the endurance I need to deal with all these problems + also be able to help B with hers.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Please bless the blood work I had drawn today. May all look good. May the recent surgery + long-ish anesthesia not have stressed the transplant.

 

I esp. pray for Your help in enabling me to get stronger over the next 4 mos. as I await a L hip replacement. The arthritis has pretty well destroyed the joint + it is no longer manageable in spite of all the things I'm doing to make things better. This will be a brutal surgery + there is not much muscle to work with, so I am concerned about that. The neuropathy has caused me to lose muscle + makes it very hard to build new muscle. I'm going to work hard in the pool swimming, etc.; I pray that it will make a big difference. I also ask in advance for blessings on the surgeon, the surgical team, + all involved that they'll have wisdom, knowledge + skill beyond their abilities so this will be successful. I pray the procedure will go smoothly + I'll heal rapidly + finally be able to walk normally w/o pain.

 

I cont. to pray for protection for the kidney as it will face another hurdle in dealing with surgery + anesthesia. In addition, I pray there will be no issues with the artificial joint or the cement they'll likely have to use to secure it.

 

Help me to remain cheerful, positive, + always trust in You.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Many praises + thanks that the May labs overall were fine. Usually there is one or maybe 2 values that are a little off, but thankfully I'm not worried about the drop in Hgb since I just had surgery-that is to be expected. TY so much that the transplant did not suffer from the long-ish anesthesia time during the hiatal hernia repair. TY also that the GERD symptoms seem to be a lot better. I pray the esophageal ulcers will finally be able to heal.

 

Protect me from cancer d/t the Barrett's + dysplasia. I also pray for protection from fractures d/t the osteoporosis + terrible bone density. Help me to make the right decision re: taking Prolia. If I do take it, I pray it will not cause terrible side effects.

 

Help me to get as healthy + as strong as possible before the L hip replacement in Sept. I pray it will go smoothly + I'll heal well + regain full mobility + flexibility. It is scary to hear my hip making crunching sounds when I move. I could do w/o the pain, too.

 

Bless my upcoming app'ts. May the docs make the best decisions re: my care + may they take my concerns seriously. I know Dr. S. will, but he's an exception.

 

TY for Your provision in so many ways. I am beyond grateful.

 

In Your precious name, amen.
