Oh this is so terrible to hear Gabs...Lakota is indeed one of my friends here, and I've admired her for her courage in her battle against cancer, the pain she was going through after her surgery and to to hear this is truly sad....she will most definitely be in my prayers as well as for her family, gabs and I hope you can keep us updated about this.

I have said a prayer - in hopes your dear friend gets better soon!
I'm so sorry to hear that gabs. I have said a prayer on your friends behalf. Lakota is very very lucky because most women don't survive a heart attack. She's in good hands now and should be ok. Bless you dear friend.

I am sorry to hear that Lakota has hit another bad patch. Women tend to ignore symptoms of heart attacks, labelling them something else. It was very thoughtful of her daughter to send you a message, so that you could keep us informed. Of course we will pray for her and send her positive, strong thoughts.

If that was just my opinion, I would not have said it. Because women tend have somewhat different symptoms, and they think they are responsible for lots of other people and things, they discount the symptoms they have, unless, as you say, the symptoms are extreme. Yes, men will ignore symptoms as well. Most doctors that I see would insist on running extra tests.Women do have more symptoms that mimic other conditions. Yes, chest pain is the first and most major symptom for both men and women.

Imigrant Gerty was only voicing her Opinion so there is no need to take it personal My Friend has just survived Cancer she has been complaining about Chest Pains and that for a while and the Doctor just did not take much notice So please do not take things Personal Gerty I tend to agree with you on this When my pains started and the Ambulance was called before they took me to Hospital they checked my heart and then again at the Hospital but I am still waiting to hear my results I have done an update on Lakota as I spoke to her yesterday on her Cell phone

Hello Gabs.. Thank you for the news and request for prayer support for Lakota. She and I have become friends as well and although we have never met in person we do keep in touch by phone and e-mail every couple of days. She always speaks of you with great love and affection and the strength of your bond is quite evident. It is very distressing to hear that she has yet another challenge. DarkWing is another mutual friend and she contract me by e-mail when she saw your post. I have requested you as a friend so it is easier to check in on your discussions. I left a message for the family and asked Linda or Jimmie to call when they have time. My husband and I will be away from home for a couple of days but I will be checking e-mails and logging into Mylot even if I do not respond and will await further updates from you. When you are talking to Lakota again please let her know that her two Canadian friends are sending their love and light to her and the family. Take care of yourself as well. Warm regards, Raia

I deleted the other discussion you started about the update about Lakota before I responded, so I am responding here. Dear Heavenly Father we are lifting Lakota up in your loving tenderness. We ask that you heal her from the top of your head to the bottom of her feet. We ask that you give her strength to carry on in your will and to bring comfort to her during this time. Lord we know that if you bring us to it, you will also bring us through it as well as you don't give us anymore than we can handle. Lord Jesus you also said, that by my stripes we are healed, so we are claiming this healing for Lakota in your precious name Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

That is such sad news gabs. No matter where we find it friendship is so important. I am sadden to hear about your friends fight with this desease. Having friends that i love dearly i'd be devestated by the realization that i may lose one of them. I will most definatly keep both you and your friend Lakota in my prayers. I hope and pray that GOD give you both the strenght to endure whatever lies ahead....Best wishes my dear.

I consider Lakota to be a one of my very good friends here on myLot she was also one of my first friends when I started here well over a year a go. She is always there to respond, comfort, amuse and not afraid to say what she thinks. I shall most definitely pray for her very speedy recovery.
