Cancer Concerns, Prayer, and My Family

Our number-two daughter is still getting radiation therapy for her cancer: and not enjoying the process. Well, of course not. If she sincerely enjoyed nausea, I’d have yet another reason for concern on her behalf.

Our son-in-law called today, mentioning the nausea situation and asking for our prayers. The effect that’s had on my daily schedule is mainly that my request for number-two daughter is more detailed now.

Speaking of which, there are five sorts of prayer: blessing, petition, intercession, thanksgiving, and praise. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2644) Prayer categories can be subdivided other ways, too, and that’s another topic for another time.

About the household here in Sauk Centre: we’re not as sick as we’ve been, and that’s good news. I finally got the monthly authorization for meds sorted out, and that is definitely another topic for another time.

Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to get something ready in time for Saturday’s post. And that’s not going to happen, if I keep writing here. So here are the usual ‘more stuff’ links, and I’m back to work on something centipedes, sea urchins and mice have in common.

    I hadn’t stopped by here in quite a while. I’m sorry to hear about your daughter. My prayer (of petition!) for her full recovery. And God bless (a prayer of blessing!) you entire family.

Thanks for taking time to comment!
