Prayer Request

Hey guys... you all know that I am usually a pretty open book on my blog and with you my friends. Well... this post is no different. I need you guys to pray for me. I desperately need some peace. This is pretty personal stuff so just bear with me.

A couple of weeks ago I had a pap come back abnormal. They did a biopsy last week and I was suppose to call tomorrow for the results. Instead, they called me yesterday and asked me to come in so my doc could talk to me. Basically... I have cancer inside my cervix or cervical canal... I am so out of it that I really can't tell you. My doc said I am only the 3rd person he has ever seen with this and he has been around a long time. Anyway.... he told me that he knew I wanted to have more kids but he didn't think that was going to be an option. It looks like I am going to have to have a radical hysterectomy. I am going to the oncologist today. I am so scared about the cancer. I am so scared that it will be worse than what they think it is and that I will die and leave my son. I couldn't sleep and I was throwing up all night. I desperately need some peace that only God can give me. I am so thankful to go to the doctor this afternoon but I am also scared about that. I hope to have more peace after going but I am worried I will just find out more bad news!

I just need you guys to pray for me, my husband, and our son! Thank you!

I know you don't know me from Adam, but I wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you as well. I also wanted to let you know that you were my sole inspiration to start a blog and to start making cards as a source of relaxation and joy. I kept seeing and favoriting your cards on SCS, and, well, you are such a wonderful, joyful person and I will be thinking of you. I wish you and your family well.

Kelley, My heart goes out to you and your family!!! I put you on the prayer chain. I pray that everything goes smooth and god will have his hand on you and your family the whole time.
But He said, "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." (Luke 18:27)
Keep you faith.... we will be praying for you.

Kelley you are always in my thoughts and prayers and now more than ever. Life can be so unfair to us sometimes but I am a believer in intrusting what is given to us is only given because we are strong enough to overcome it. You are a very strong and loved person. You will pull through this. I know it in my heart. And if there is anything I can ever do please don't hesitate to ask. Big hugs, Carly

Oh Kelley my friend...I wish that I lived closer to you....you are definitely in my thoughts...hang in there...

Jane said...

I will pray hard....my mom had cancer and survived........positive thinking is soooo POWERFUL! Hang in there!!!

Patti said...

Kelley,
I am so sorry you are having to go through this. Please know that the Baker family is praying for you. Praying for God's sweet love, peace and comfort for you, Michael and sweet Carver. We love you all very much. God will take care of you. Patti

Elise said...

I'm glad that I'm only typing, because I do NOT want you to see my face right now...

Ohhhhh, FRIEND. Not being able to run to you and hold you and take Carver for ice cream... bake you a lasagna.. WHATEVER sort of thing that I could do do ease your burden.. THAT I CAN'T do because I'm too far away ~ is VERY frustrating! Crackers. This is probably the first DOWNSIDE to having such a dear "blog friend!" I want to climb right through the internet and get YOU.

But, yes, my DEAR, I can pray. I can PRAY very hard and OFTEN. This is a rotten deal. Absolutely. I understand you thinking in extremes and I don't blame you... I know how much you love your boys and how devoted you are, but I can't allow my thoughts to linger on those terrible outcomes... You may be tested here, but you are GOING TO BE FINE. BECAUSE your baby is .. a baby... BECAUSE of CARVER, this has been found! That's a good thing.

Let the Doctors take care of you ~ we'll all pray.. And then YOU can be there for your sweet guys.

I love you, dear Kelley, my Kelley.

Dana Gustafson said...

Oh Kelley! You know we will all be praying for you. Stay positive, take care of you first and call on your faith to get you through. So many hugs to you and your family, xoxoxxo, Dana

Kelley, I am glad you posted this information. Howard called me this morning but did not tell me what kind of cancer you are dealing with. I am so sorry that you have to go through all this.... but I think that cervical cancer is very curable. Hope you get better news this afternoon. Call me if you want to talk. We love you and will be praying for you all.

Alanna said...

Oh Kelley, I am so sorry. Prayer is very important in my life and I will pray that you will find the peace that you so desperately need.

What you must be going through is something that I can't imagine. I do know that God loves you and that he gives none of us more than we are able to bear.

You are a strong person and you will be around to see your baby boy grow up. I am sure of that.

Winter said...

My family is praying for you Kelley! I am a BIG worrier myself, so I know where your mind is right now! But God tells us that we don't have to be troubled, I know it is much easier said than done, but thru Him it is possible! Since we have been going thru this with Chance and his tests, I have been amazingly pretty calm! Don't get me wrong, the bad thoughts try to come creeping in, but I just rebuke those in the Name Of Jesus! I know the reason why we are doing well, is because of people like you praying for our family, so we will do the same for your family! God Bless you and keep you! :)

Catherine said...

Kelley I want you to know that I am thinking of you and you are in my thoughts. I will keep happy thoughts and positive thoughts for you and your family. Take care and enjoy the happiness that your lovely little boy and your husband bring you. Just know we are all thinking of you. xo

LeAnne said...

Oh Kelley, we are praying for you too! Let's just hope and pray that the diagnosis will not be as dire as it seems....focus on the Lord as He is the Great Physician and allow Him to hold you in the palm of His hand. We will pray for ALL of your family as you travel this path.
Hugs,
LeAnne

Praying for God's love and peace to be with you---lean on Him!! He will get you through anything! I pray that you will be healed and that your family will grow! We ask THIS in Jesus' name!!! Sav

Christina Smith said...

Oh Kelley!!! I am sending you cyber hugs!! I am praying! The Lord is your healer! He will be with you through all of this! Cleave to Him with all of your strength and He will give you strength. Father, I pray that no harm would be done unto her. She is your child! Lord, I pray that you would heal her. I pray that if the operation is necessary, that You would be with those doctors. Give Kelley your peace that passes all understanding. I pray that she would have reasons to smile and laugh. She's such a sweet person and I have been so blessed by her. Wrap your loving arms around her Lord! I know you are with her! In Jesus' precious name, Amen! I love you Kelley!

Kelley, Everything is going to be okay...GOD is in control.

Jessica said...

Oh Kelly!!! I am in tears for your concern. But please rest assured that you are in the most tender, caring hands you can possibly be, the hands of Jesus. I wish I was there to just hold you tightly and tell you, "everything is going to be ok". Trust me I will be earnestly praying for you.
Love you

Kelley - I'm so sorry to hear your news. Keeping you in my thoughts and hoping you get more answers today at your appointment. You will find that you have more strength than you ever imagined.

Hi Kelley,
I'm not religious in any way but please know that I'm thinking of you and your family! The "C" word is the scariest thing on this entire earth to hear but it is not a death sentance! It is a journey. My aunt had colon cancer, rectal cancer and kidney! My other aunt had breast cancer. My mother has had cancer in throat, and glands 2 times and 3 surgeries. All three women are strong, healthy, beautiful woman, doing great and all in remission! I may not believe in "God" but I do believe that we are given what we can handle. You are strong, loving, creative and thoughtful. You have been given the wonderful gift of motherhood which is more than I can say for myself. You can do this! You can do this! You can do this! :) I will keep you in my thoughts and ask my friends to please pray for you in their prayer circles! Everything will be OK!
Please keep us posted of your journey! Many HUGS to you are your family!
Sincerely
Q!

I know it's been a while since I've been around blogger and all, but although I don't have much time to comment lately, I had to take a sec to leave you one. I'm sorry this is going on with you and you are in my prayers. Stay optimistic and keep the faith, everything happens for a reason and it WILL work out. Hang in there girly.
