New Post--same request :(

I know it has been ages since I have posted! I feel guilty even posting now--it has been so long and once again, I come to you, my blogfriends, with a prayer request.
I have not posted because I have been very ill. In March I collapsed at home, was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where they found seven bloodclots in my heart and lungs. I was not expected to make it but with the prayers of my friends and the healing touch of the Master, I recovered. They thought the clots came from my spleen which was very enlarged--so they did all kinds of tests, including a bone marrow biopsy (not too much fun) and finally in April, they removed my spleen. It was not cancerous, but was so large, they had to cut two abdominal muscles, peel it from around my pancreas and re -inflate a lung it had collapsed. I immediately got pneumonia and had a tap that removed the fluid. I began to recuperate, again thanks to the prayers of my friends and the care of the Father. I was home four days, had a follow up appt and was immediately put back in the hospital. My blood was so thin, I had to have 6 units of fresh frozen plasma and 3 of whole blood. Once again, they were not sure I would make it but God knew differently, He'd heard your prayers.
Tuesday of this week, I went in for follow up appt. My labs were skewed, my BP was only 100/42 and my blood was too thin again. So back into the hospital I went for two days. I received more blood products and had an upper and lower gi scope. They found nothing except that my ovarian cancer marker (C125) is high. So next week I go to see yet another doctor.

I have been unable to keep anything on my stomach and have lost a total of 51 lbs since the end of February. I am tired of feeling bad and being unable to know what is wrong! I am tired of having to have someone else cover my ladies classes and my support groups, not to mention my job. And today my boss told me that my job is in jeopardy. She said it was a verbal warning and while "she understands" I can't help it, "the company needs someone who is there to do the job". -----------Y'all, MY job pays our health insurance. That is why I work, too! I am more anxious now about not being well!

So once again, my friends, like a street beggar, I am pleading with you for prayers. I want to be well and useful in the Kingdom again. I don't want my husband to be worried and concerned for my health all the time and I don't want him to have the added burden of no insurance. It is late and I am tired and perhaps later I will look back at this post and delete it for being the selfish worries of a faithless woman, but for tonight, for right now, I covet your prayers.

I am praying for you too, dear one. And I do not believe for a minute you are either selfish or faithless! I think you are just sick and tired of being sick and tired. So tonight and tomorrow and the next day and the next, you are in my prayers.

Love you,
Pat

Father, I ask that you cover Neva and her family with your peace. I also ask that you heal her body. In Jesus' Name, Amen

May God be with you each step of the way.

Praying, praying, and praying some more!! I am glad for an update on what you're going through, so my prayers can be more specific. I don't think you're selfish or faithless at all! We all know you're more concerned about Ned and about God's Kingdom than you are about yourself.

Love you!!

These are not "selfish" concerns of a "faithless woman." In fact, it is your faith in prayer that compels you to ask for intercession. It reminds me of the last time I taught a class in North Platte -- on being poor in spirit. By studying to teach that class I finally comprehended what the concept means. That until we know how much we need God, we can't really accept the strength He has to offer. You are such a shining example to believers, Neva. And I'm sorry that I haven't been in better touch with you to offer my support. My continued thoughts are with you as well as a multitude of prayers on your behalf. Much love to you and Ned. Love, Cara

Dearest Neva, I have missed you and wondered what happened. What a trial you have been thru! I thank the Father that you are still here on earth with us-because some day I would like to meet you in person. I pray that the elevated marker turns out to mean nothing and that you are well on the road to good health.

Neva,

I look forward to the day that you live the "no news is great news" life again. You've been in my thoughts and prayers and I shall continue! I will make contact soon.

God Bless,

Beloved friend!

How do I ask forgiveness for not even reading here for months? Ergo, had no idea what was going on with your health. I'm late to the party, but join everyone else in heartfelt prayers that you continue to heal and that your job waits for you.

He knows your needs and He's promised to fill them. I trust Him to do so in your case, which has probably already been settled, but that's what I get for being so inattentive.

My move will be over with in another 8 days, just the unpacking to look forward to, so promise to be more aware of what's happening in your sweet and valued life!

May our loving, gracious and merciful God be always at hand, holding yours and healing your body! AMEN!!!

Love you!!

Hi, Neva. I just ran across your blog and the awesome post you did called "Intentional Healing, Deliberate Growth." I would love to repost this on my blog... giving you full credit and linking back to Dancing in the Light, of course. Wanted to get your permission first, though. ;o)

Lifting you for healing, and that Papa God would refresh your body, soul and spirit. Keep on keeping on, sis. He loves you so!
