May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
My son has been battling lymphoma for the past 7 months. His doctors were telling us that he was doing great, wonderful, 8 treatments and then a year of monitoring. Now they are telling us they want to do a stem cell transplant. Something inside of me is telling me no, not to do this.
We are at a great hospital, although not one of the leading lymphoma hospitals. I am concerned that because my son is young and has a better chance of recovery versus an older person, that they may be wanting to do this to up their statistics.
We do have another appointment in one of the leading lymphoma hospital here for a second opinion.
My trust is with God, however, these doctors frighten me. It seems they are more concerned with strictly the medical and don't realize there is a real person here with this illness, not to mention a ton of friends and family who care for him tremendously. I am so confused and slightly angry with their change, when all along they have been telling us that things are going great.

Today, they caused my son and me doubt, confusion and fear.

Please pray with me that this new doctor will be understanding, honest and faithful and realize it a human he is dealing with that has this disease. Please Pray for peace, understanding, knowledge and complete trust in the Lord for us, especially my son, that we may know that He is guiding and directing us. May this decision that we will eventually have to make come from God's love.
Thank you and may God bless you all abundantly.
Love,
Sandy

May Sandy and her son know peace and comfort as they walk this path. May the angels go before them, guide their caregivers and bring the exact caregiver to them with clear guidance for them so they will know. May love, peace, joy and compassion be the daily reality for Sandy, her son, his caregivers and all who know and love him.This, or something better, please, God. Thank you, Loving Spirit. Amen.
Thank you Inda, Lin S-W, and Barbara. I am so glad Teo posted this site. Hank goes on the Chopra site and I don't want him to see some of my deeper fears and feelings. So thank you Teo for posting this site.

Everything in me is screaming not to do this transplant. My husband has told me that I can be scary at times with some of the feelings I get about certain things. I am grateful for them, as I believe it is Divine guidance. Hank feels them too. Doing battle with Doctors and hearing their negativity at times is so tough. It seems they don't hear us at times and don't tell us all. I know they are the educated ones in this, but I am not so certain of them and their intentions right now. It is time we move on to this other doctor.
So from my heart, I thank you for your prayers and support.
Sending you my love,
Sandy

Dearest Sandy, I pray for clarity in the decisions to take. I am sure your heart speaks wisely and so does Hank's heart. May you be comforted by other doctors' diagnosis. May you be free of fear, but totally aware of the real existing risks, so that you won't just follow blindly what will be proposed ... your inner voice may speak clearly, leaving you in trusting calmness and serenity.
You and Hank are always in my heartprayers.

Tender hugs of love and friendship.
