Requesting Prayer
As many of you are aware my lovely stepdaughter MikaLyn battled Lymphoma from 2001 to 2003. Earlier this week she complained that her shoulder hurt. Yesterday, she developed shooting pains down her left arm and tremors in her left hand (since subsided). Since this was the same kind of symptoms (except in the leg back then) she had prior to her diagnosis of Lymphoma alarms went off. We are now awaiting authorization for the MRI and she will be seeing the doctors at Children's Hospital of Philly as soon as the MRI is complete. Marj is understandably terrified. I am hoping that I can provided the needed comfort and support if the worst is realized.

Please pray for us. Here is a shot of Marj and MikaLyn (since Marj looks quite young, she is the one on the right LOL )

My best thoughts and wishes and strength go out to Mikalyn. :!:

She looks like one tough and beautiful girl. I get the feeling she can handle anything.

Take care,

Prayers Sent!
Dear Doug and Marj,
That has to be the most awful feeling. I was not a part of this Board when you went thru the lymphoma with Mikalyn the first time, but have read your posts about her before. I am praying for Mikalyn and know that NOTHING is impossible with God! He sent His Word and healed us. I am praying for you and Marj too...that God will give you peace and comfort as you're waiting for the test results. Keep us posted and know that I am praying daily for your beautiful daughter!
Love and Prayers,

Hi Doug, & Marge,
Please know you all are in my prayers, and I am hoping for good news.

Phyllbo March 23rd, 2007 02:03 PM

Oh, Doug, how sad to read your request for prayer today. I will pray for Mikalyn and for Marge and your whole family. I believe, as Merry does, that God hears and answers prayer. May you experience his comfort and love as you await the news.

I am stunned to read that this problem may have returned. I, too, remember your posts when she was undergoing treatment.
I shall ask our father to place her in his mighty arms and heal her.
I hope you and Marj will turn this burden over to our lord as he will comfort you.
All the best Doug.


Donna March 23rd, 2007 06:00 PM

Oh Doug,
Prayers on the way, lets hope for good news...Please keep us all posted.

nolou525 March 23rd, 2007 11:34 PM

Doug, Marj and MikaLyn----so very happy to hear the results were negative. Never underestimate the power of prayer.

ready2gonow March 23rd, 2007 11:41 PM

Doug, I'm so glad to hear that the results are negative! I know it has been a long day, rest well!

And in our church, when someone says "God is good, all the time," the automatic reply is "And all the time, God is good!"

merryheart March 24th, 2007 12:00 AM

Thanks You Jesus!
