Please pray for my husband, Ernie (age 51 from Ohio). He is a wonderful husband and father. It was just discovered that he has a soft mass on his right lung and the doctors think it's cancer. He has a biopsy scheduled for tomorrow, 9/15/09. Please pray that this mass is not cancerous in the name of Jesus. He has had several miracles in the past, and we are asking yet again, for another. Twenty or so years ago, Ernie was involved in a terrible car accident. Doctors thought that he wouldn't live, and if he did live, he'd be a vegetable. Ernie was in a coma & had a severe brain injury. He came out of the coma after six weeks, and learned to walk and talk again. He has held a regular job for 17 years, and lives a normal life. Then, about 8 years ago, Ernie choked on a peanut M&M. It went down the wrong pipe. Doctors couldn't find anything in his lung, and for months Ernie got sicker and sicker. Finally the doctors agreed to do a scope on the lung & told us that they feared he had lung cancer. I brought him to a church prayer group, and they laid hands on him and prayed. That same night, Ernie coughed and coughed, and believe it or not, he coughed up the peanut from the M&M that had been stuck in his lung for months. The biopsy came back with no cancer - the peanut had caused severe scar tissue on the lung. Ernie ended up losing 2/3 of that lung. This is the same lung (it's actually a stump of 1/3 lung) that the doctors are saying has a soft mass that they think is cancer. Last Saturday, they drained 800 cc of fluid out of his lungs. He is very sick and depressed (as we, his family, are as well). Please, please pray that the mass they see is not cancer, and that the mass is nothing life threatening. I ask this in the name of Jesus. The biopsy is tomorrow (9/15), and we will get the results in 3 working days.
Thank you so much - Mary (U.S.A)
