Prayer for Tracy

Today I am sending out a call to prayer for a wonderful young woman~Tracy.
Tracy is a dear friend of our family that has been diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her left breast, T5 bone cancer which came from the breast cancer and a kidney tumor. She is undergoing a 3 phase treatment plan which includes:
1st - strong, triple-drug chemotherapy
2nd - surgery after chemo is completed
3rd - radiation to take care of any remaining cancerous cells
She is currently in the 1st phase of treatment and has been since November 5th. I chide myself for not bringing her before the wonderful prayer warriors I have come to know here in the blogging community before now. The latest update that I received yesterday said this~
Well, God is good!
After good lab results (I was really worried about them because I am trying to catch a cold again) and a positive doctor's appointment (he really thinks the tumor is totally shrinking), I was able to start my 3rd session of chemo today.
So, I am staying on schedule - yippie!!!

My Neulasta shot is scheduled for late afternoon on Thursday, 12/18.
I ask that you pray for me especially on that day and a few days after.
This is the shot that kicks the production of bone marrow into high gear.
This is the one that "kicks my butt" each time due to horrific bone pains.

We will keep you posted if anything changes.

Won't you please join me and the rest of Tracy's family and friends in prayers on her behalf for the success of the treatments and the easing of the pain that the necessary treatments cause.
Tracy does not have a blog, but I know she would appreciate any prayers and words of encouragement you would like to share.
~ Rhonda

Father, you know her pain and you love her. Hold her close and comfort her through times of pain. Fill her senses so that she feels you more than any physical presence. Give her joy and surround her with those who love her. -amen-

I'll add her to our prayer chain right away. You can update it as you like on the left sidebar of my blog (prayer requests link).

Prayers and good thoughts to Tracy and her family from middle Georgia.

Thanks for the visit and comment and yes,yes, yes..you can get some Domineckers. The Domineckers have been one of the best layers so there should be a good many of them hatching soon.
I am between Macon and Augusta. Is that too long of a drive?
Hopefully in 15 days we will have some biddies hatching.
Have a great day.

Lord, we lift Tracy before you. You know every part of her, for you fearfully and wonderfully made her. Please remove from her every trace of that cancer and create in her new, healthy cells. Touch her from the top of her head to the soles of her feet. You are her Healer, you are the Great Physician. Nothing is impossible for you. In Jesus' name, Amen.

I have just joined May 5, 09. I noticed the "Pray for Tracey".
I pray by this time Tracey is doing well, and she has received the Lord's healing touch. She has my heartfelt prayers.
In Jesus/Yeshua's Love, Lindylu
