And Now My Sister Has A Medical Problem

I really cannot fathom what has hit our family in recent days with all this bad news - it always seems to come in a deluge of travesties doesn't it?

It is now my sister, Maggie May, who has a Health Issue.

First, I thank you for your prayers and good wishes for my wife, Maria.
It seems as though the drugs are containing the cancer at the moment and we hope and pray they may continue to do so for as long as possible.

I know most of you will know Maggie's husband, Harry, has been suffering from Prostate Cancer for seven years.

And now, recently Maggie found a lump in her groin and had this investigated.
It seems that there is a strong possibility this is a form of cancer as well.

On Monday Maggie is undergoing surgery and again I would ask all my friends to rally round and give her your support and prayers.

Maggie has posted this incident in much more detail and I am linking this post to her blog site, Nuts In May. To see it please press HERE.

May God Bless you Maggie and keep you in His loving care.


  1. oh Eddie...continuing to pray...

  2. Both your wife and sister are in my thoughts and prayers Eddie...

  3. YOu know that our prayers are with Maggie, Harry and of course you and your lovely wife! I pray God to hold you all in His warm and healing hands...amen

  4. Oh wow,! As if you didn't already have enough on your plate! so sorry. Postive thoughts coming your way.

  5. Eddie, Maggie May went into great detail on her blog about her upcoming ordeal. It is so amazing that you have been slammed with so much adversity in this fashion. I suppose the Lord knows that your family strength and love will help you bond together even more to survive all that is on your plate and endure. Along with so many who have grown to be part of your extended blogging family, I send my prayers and love.

  6. Eddie:

    I'm saying a prayer for you and yours as soon as this posts, and will keep you (and yours) in my nightlies. God bless.

  12. Thanks everyone - I am doing another post to cheer us all up ~ Eddie

  13. You guys! You ahve been through it, haven't you? I pray good news will come for your family! I have been reading Maggie's blog for so long I can't recall when I started... It made me so sad to know so many of you have been touched by cancer.

  14. So sorry to hear about Maggie's illness, but hopefully, she will be comforted by all of the prayers being said for her. I will add her and her husband, to my prayer list. God Bless You All.

  15. I was on Maggie's site tonight, Eddie, and read before I came here. How in the world did I NOT know she was your sister? Yes, yes, yes she is in my prayers. Such a very dear person. I told her a friend of mine had lymphoma and beat it. Healthy now for several years. Praying for such happy news for her.

  16. Oh no.. dang! Sending my very best healing thoughts for your wonderful sister. Hang in there.

  17. Sending my silent prayers your family's way Eddie.
    You are so well loved that I am sure it will all be good. God bless all!
