Prayers For My Dearest Friend Breast cancer
Posted 15 May 2012 - 04:57 PM
Bobbie has been a very good friend of mine for many years - she was one of Rich's trainees in the police department and she and I became very close over the years. She worked for several years on patrol and then moved to the detective division in our department. Just recently, in the last few months, she was selected for a Chief of Police job in a small community here and also had just gotten engaged to be married.
Bobbie has long beautiful chestnut hair - is the happiest person I know and I love her dearly. She has had alot of health issues in her young age and has managed to get past all of them because of her amazing attitude. She has moved her wedding up so that she can get married before she starts these treatments and she has a wonderful support system with family and her law enforcement friends, but I'd like to ask for Scrap Girl Prayers for her please.
She starts her chemo on the 26th of this month and already has her wigs ready to go - she has several - they are Rapunzel, a Mohawk, and a Goldilocks wig so far! (That's just to show you what a wonderful sense of humor she has!) The oncologist told her that with the chemo she would be taking that she would begin to lose her hair in the second week of chemo.
Please may I ask for your prayers for my friend, Bobbie - that she will beat this cancer like she has beaten every other obstacle that has come her way!

Thank you, Bitzee - Bobbie IS wonderful and vibrant! I think her attitude is what's keeping me going strong here! I feel as if she's supporting me some days! With God's help and her attitude, I just know everything is going to be ok!

I made a big pot of homemade chicken soup and froze batches of it in portion sized containers so she could keep it in her freeze for the days when she is hungry - and today I'm taking over a variety of popsicles - Jode gave me some great advice on things that might taste good to her when she gets that metallic taste in her mouth.
I think every bone and every muscle in her body is hurting - she says it's like a full body ache and so far she hasn't taken anything for the pain. She's such a little trooper! She does get upset from time to time - has lots of blue moments when Mike is at work but she always bounces back. And during her chemo treatments, it's Bobbie who keeps the other patients having chemo in hysterics!
Keep praying - Somehow God listens to Scrap Girl prayers - I just know that with prayer and Bobbie's attitude that she is going to beat this!
And please, please, everyone have your mammogram!
