He's in a hospital on a vent, he had lung cancer and has one lung, now he has the flu, the doctors said he may never come off the vent, but I know that's up to God, it's in his hands. My brother is 54 has one grown son, and two small children. He's a great guy please pray for him his name is David. They're keeping him sleeping wake him once a day till his body heals. When they wake him he gets nervus and his oxygen level goes down so they put him back to sleep. Thank u for your prayers. Liz

I pray that all is well with you and your family and that your brother is doing good. Heavenly Father according to your Word in John 14:14 'Ask anything in my Name and I shall do it. I am asking for health and strength for Brother David and his family. I am asking for healing for Brother David. By the the authority of Christ Jesus Amen.

I´m so sorry, dasiejanie! I know how it is cancer and your loved ones. And it´s worse when people who are young have it. It seems they still have things to do in the Earth. But it´s not up to us. But I do believe in the power of prayer, so I will do it. Take care!

Update: my brother got off the vent and they're alternating the cpac and nose oxygen. Seems one day he's good the next not so good. Find out today about the trec hoping he wont need it. His spirit is good though he gets confused alot, he thinks he can get outta bed, gets upset that they tell him no. Wants to take a shower by himself. He's been in hospital for 6 weeks dosent realize how weak and sick he is. Watched saints game yesterday him and nurses were loving it. Please continue to pray for him, he has a long way to go. Thanks Liz

I am really sorry to hear about that. It must be tough for you and your family, and also to your brother. Have a strong faith and don't lose hope. I'm sure God is listening to us. I hope things will get better for you in time.
