Pray for This Friend

Bad news. My friend's husband, whose story I posted here, is confirmed of having lung cancer. And it's Stage 4.

God... I feel sorry for him. I went to visit him at the hospital two weeks ago. He seemed fine. Like his usual self, except for this huge lump on his right thigh. He said that was the effect of the cancer, but they couldn't confirm yet at that time.

But on a positive note, my friend sounded optimistic when I texted her just now. She said, they kinda expected it, and are now focusing on the treatment and getting better.

Syukur alhamdulillah... they need to think positive in times like this. I'll probably go and see him later. Friends who know them, please pray for him. That's all we can do for now...

I know 2 cases exactly like this iaitu tetiba check dah stage 4, both women..last year. My office mate's mom, another was my mother's friend. Shocking isnt it? Ingatkan smokers aje yg kena. It took them away less than a year, forgive my directness kak. But anything can happen, we never know..sume ni terjadi menguji kita sebagai hambaNya. Praying for your friend's strength, hubbynya sihat dan moga sentiasa dlm peliharaan Allah.

BJ,

I doakan (insyallah) Lin´s hubby will recover soon. It will take time and the whole family need to be positive all the time. I still believe in miracle.

´Hoping for the best but prepare for the worst´ ...

Our prayers go out to your friends; may they be strong to face what Allah has instore for them. Look at it as a dugaan and not punishment.

I too have a friend who's suffering from cancer. I think it is cervical cancer. She was diagnosed with it just after her divorced (she discovered the hubby was having an affair with the Philipino helper!). That was 4 years ago. She went thru chemo - and it was cured.

Late last year she told me doctors found another growth ...I guess she is recovering now coz I know she's still working..

Anyway - my prayers to your friend's hubby. Is the friend our mutual friend?

I hope your friend's emotional strength has increased tremendously, because it may get worse. There's no point in trying to harp too much on false hope. Just imagine any good news as a bonus, then she'll remain stronger.

I really do not know what else to say. It's really sad, and I empathize her.

I still remember how we used to go to her house...! The husband is a nice chap..

I havent been in contact with her for 1 1/2 years!! I used to call her just to say hi...

Send my salam to her will you....I hope she is strong..for her own sake and the sake of the children...
