God's Truth Not Smooth Words

Personal Prayer Request

Dear friends,

My daughter arrived today and, early tomorrow morning, we will make the 100-mile trip into Seattle’s Harborview Hospital. They will be performing an angioplasty on me for an annual check-up, so to speak, since I underwent surgery last year for a “huge” right temporal lobe aneurysm. At the time, they also found a small aneurysm at the base of my skull on the left side. My prognosis at the time was considered terminal, so they did not address the small aneurysm in that the large one was life threatening. (see “Blessings In Disguise”)

I’ve already claimed total healing; however, the scheduled procedure is not without risk, so I ask everyoneto  pray for our awesome Lord’s will over me and His control over the doctor’s hands. I will know the results when I see my neurosurgeon on Wednesday afternoon.

Also, I ask the Lord for strength to endure these tests and the great number of draining hours this will involve. Still recovering from having broken my back, my health also is compromised by MS, Lupus and a number of other issues. And, I ask for strength for my daughter, who has been quick to my side throughout this past year.

Thank you so much for your prayers! Much love in Christ, BonnieQ

  1. Hi, I’m Nick, Martha’s husband. Martha can’t type her own messages… not yet. I have been reading the wonderful stories and comments on this site and wished to share Martha’s story with the other readers.

    I have been an avid student of all of the world’s religions and adhere to the faith that our creator is inclusive in his ways and that all creation has been provided to learn from. But, nothing I had studied prepared me for what life is unfolding.

    On January 1, 2004, Martha suffered a brain aneurysm that put her into a coma. The doctors all said she was gone, with more than half her brain destroyed. She and I had a different opinion. I could FEEL her in the dark scary place she had gone to. I stayed with her 24/7 in ICU touching her and speaking to her. I told her, “Baby, you know that you have been given a promise, and that you are never alone. All you have to do is call for Him, reach out and He will take your hand to lead you wherever you want to go. If it’s going to be too hard, and if you have to go, know that we love you. But, that if you want to come back, all you have to do is ask, and He will lead you back.” It was 11 p.m. on my birthday. Half an hour later her left eye cracked open just a sliver to let the light in. Martha had made her choice… the rest is what this is all about… an amazing story of a woman’s love for life and her journey back. Until August 2005 Martha was paralized, with her eyes locked to the left. It was then she met Anna who started her on a path of return with Reiki treatments. Today, though still hemiplegic, she has started to speak (she has Broca’s aphasia so finding words is sporadic but when she does speak, she does so in any of 5 languages), no longer needs her trifocal glasses (mid-summer 2007; her opthamologist says her eyes are like a newborn’s), is off the feeding tube since mid-May 2007 and devouring the world of food (I taught her Chinese, Ukranian and Italian, she taught me Caribbean, French and Spanish… she still criticizes my cooking!), has an incredible sense of humor and tries to get a laugh out of anyone who is sad, and is introducing many people to ways few have learned and places fewer have visited.

    This Holiday season, I’m videotaping her as she rediscovers words through Christmas carols.

    Her story is being told as it happens on http://www.myspace.com/marthaslove. We invite you to visit.

  5. Thank you so much, sister Diana! I certainly will take all the prayers I can get. 🙂 My regular physician is scheduling the heart tests, but as yet I’ve not heard from her: not that I’m anxious for them to be done. LOL! Anyway, I will do my best to keep everyone updated.

    Also, I have a tooth inflamed– several days ago– unfortunately, because I’m on Medicare, who only pays to have a tooth pulled OR for false teeth, I’ve not been able to find a dentist that will let me pay out. Aaaargh! And, I have all of my own teeth except two. Alas, I have 4 crowns that were botched and must be subjected to a root canal and redone, plus this current tooth. Six years ago, they wanted over $12,000 just to redo the 4. So, I know that God CAN heal my teeth in a miraculous way, thus I’m depending on HIM!

    My prayers are with you, too, dear one!

    Much love in Christ,
    BonnieQ

  10. Thank you so much, brother Nyasha and sister Renee! How wonderful, Renee; for I had told my daughter yesterday evening, as we were making the 100-mile trip home, that I believed God did not want those invasive procedures done and that, as far as I’m concerned, He already has healed me! Naturally, as my daughter, she is concerned and does at least want me to have the heart tests done. And, if will set her mind at ease, perhaps I should do it for her; albeit, as I said, I feel that I’m just fine. I just need all my energy back! LOL! 🙂

    Again, thanks so much for the prayers. There is no more powerful thing anyone could do for me than to pray; for that IS the power! 🙂

    Much love and hugs,
    BonnieQ

I woke this morning with a song in my heart. “Speak to My Heart, Holy Spirit…” He is speaking through me at this time and I know you heard as well…BONNIE IS ALRIGHT! God is the greatest healer, the greatest surgeon, the greatest… We are great in HIM! Know that you are forever blessed and always in my thoughts and prayers. I look to hear from you soon for I know that this is just another rung on the ladder for you. I trust the Lord that He will see you through. There are angels dispensed about you always.

  13. Thank you so much, my precious brother and sisters, for all your prayers. Unfortunately, by 1pm, when the angiogram was to be performed, I was experiencing chest pains and they called in a cardiologist. Two ekg’s later and they cancelled the angiogram, because it is an invasive procedure with a lot of risk factors.

    While the ekg’s did not indicate a heart attack, which I’d already told them it was not, that it was stress on my heart from having not eaten since the night before as well as having just had to walk 5 blocks uphill to the clinic, then back again to the hospital. . . nevertheless, they want extensive heart tests before they will reconsider doing the brain angiogram: in short, they might have to do a heart angiogram first to determine if there is blockage.

    So, all is cancelled, except seeing my regular physician tomorrow, who is to order all the heart tests. Personally, I feel that God did not want the brain angiogram done yesterday, for whatever reasons; thus, I came home and, at present, I am doing fine albeit worn out but no longer hungry. LOL! And, I slept a whole lot better in my own bed. 🙂

    I did tell the doctors at Harborview that they really must take into consideration a persons “other” health issues; in my case, MS, Lupus, Hypoglycemia, etc. To go too long without eating yet having to do all that walking in an already weakened condition cause the MS and Lupus to kick in big time, to say the least my sugar count having gone wild. So, I felt that the only thing wrong with my heart was it being stressed.

    I suggested that it would be better if they would have me come in the night before, then schedule the angiogram for first thing the next morning; then, all of these negatives could be avoided. They agreed that these other things needed to be considered and will do all they can to better schedule next time.

    I will do my best to keep all of you updated; and, again, thank you so much for all your prayers. Prayer is where all the power resides! 🙂

    Much love in Christ,
    BonnieQ
