Emergency Prayer Request For The Grandfather of Penlighted
May I humbly request my readers and friends to please pray for the grandfather of Penlighted who was diagnosed with brain tumor and may have to undergo a brain operation in the Philippines. Let us also pray that God provide them the financial means to cover all the expenses for her grandfather. By the stripes of Jesus Penlighted's grandfather is healed. This we pray heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen. Thank you all very much. God bless us all.
*** Message of Penlighted
Just a while ago we received a news from my relatives in the Philippines. My grandfather, the father of my mom, is in the ICU right now and was diagnosed to have a brain tumor. He was given medicines and the doctors said that if he won't respond to it they will see if he can have an operation. As of now we really don't have the complete details of how he is...
I am humbly asking your prayers for my grandfather that may he receive a complete healing through God's love and mercy with the medicines that he will be taking. Please also pray for our family that may we all be ready in terms of our financial so we can help our grandfather.
Thank you very much for all your prayers.
Latest Update of The Condition of Penlighted's Grandfather
My aunt was not able to give me the medical terms about the diagnosis but she had told me that the size of the tumor is 5.5cm x3.5cm x3.5cm(LWT). His bladder is now distended because he was not able to urinate even if he already has the catheter. He also needs to have insulin shots right now.
The most heartbreaking part is that we can't afford to give him the right treatment that he needs. For less than 2 days the initial bill in the hospital was 15000php, about $300, and the CT scan costs 7000php (about $150). She said that the nurses in the hospital were already scolding them because they can't buy the medicines that my grandfather needs. They brought my grandfather to a private hospital during the emergency because it was the nearest to them but now that they had decided to bring him to a public hospital, the private hospital won't release him because the bills are not yet paid. The longer they stay in the private hospital, the more the bills will increase and they are just staying there for the doctors and the room and not for his treatment. Some of the needed tests were not yet done because they don't have the money to pay for the lab.
='( It is painful because my aunt said that my grandfather is still fighting. If only we could have money to give them...but I believe this is not just about the money. God is still the best healer and even without the money, if He permits, I know he'll be well. I know He is with us and everything will just be fine through Him.
Please help us pray for him and for our family.
Thank you very much.
