Prayer Request POR FAVOR🙏

So this’ll be short and sweet. I know it’s been quite a while, but it’s been a jam-packed summer, keeping up with my crew at home, my treatments now at home and any other extras seem to fall to the wayside! Such is life, right?

The scoop:

I’m at the hospital this a.m. for a scheduled appt for the Gamma Knife, non-invasive brain surgery/radiation machine.

Although it sounds pretty freaky, it’s about my fourth time in this machine. They have a mask molded for me that they both meet down with and they have it there waiting for me from any of my past times in this machine. Unfortunately, I am a regular. I will be treated for two small tumors that we’re send from a brain MRI that I went in for just last Tuesday and we reviewed this Monday.

How blessed are we to be able to take care of it this fast and to have this kind of technology within driving distance??

Say whaaaa? (Esplain’ it to me!):

So these aren’t new tumors, my oral chemos are still working! Actually they are preventing new growth!

These tumors were small bits of my original tumors from last year that were there last September that were just too small then to treat. However since these tiny lil buggers were still active cancer tumors, they still have the ability to grow over time yet my chemo can’t touch it but prevent more from forming.

Thus, we have the amazing Gamma Knife orchestrated by radiologist Charlie Woods, head radiologist here at MBP of OLL Hospital in Baton Rouge.

Yes, this is no fun, and will wear me out for the next few days😴😴😴😴. But, not to worry, because as I always say, with all your prayers and God’s grace…

Please, as you see this, comment with prayer intentions for me to offer up before , during and after during recovery.

Those intentions are important to me to get me through. It gives purpose to all this!🙏🙌 Please don’t hesitate! You can message me privately at the email on the home page if you prefer. Teambuna@gmail.com

Thanks, & God bless

Buna!!

  1. Praying for you and your family Elise. Please add our family and especially my 15 year old daughter Ellie to your prayer list. She has been battling a brain tumor for over 2 years and her most recent scan showed tumor growth. We have a lot of weighty decisions to make regarding the next steps in treatment.

    • Karyn,
      I’m so very sorry that your family & your daughter have been struggling through this!
      I’m assuming you’ve been to all the docs and heard all the suggestions of where to go, etc.
      But assuming you’ve gone to St.Jude’s, as it seems most family’s that I’ve known well who’ve dealt with this have… do you mind me asking where is she at this point in treatment so I can pray specifically. I have a few friends who’ve young and teenage children have struggled for quite some years and are current survivors of their various forms of brain tumors.
      I’m always curious and intrigued by each persons process and wanting to provide all that I can in support in prayer, commeradery
      To both parents and kids alike as I work in both marriage ministry and worked in teen ministry for much of my life.
      If there’s anything I could do for you, a famiky member or even your daughter, I’d be so humbled and grateful.

  16. I am sorry I am just seeing this post but I pray for you daily so I trust my prayers blanketed you during your treatment. I am hoping your are currently getting lots of rest and recovering beautifully. My intention request pales in comparison to others, but I am currently following a calling and starting a business. We are launching on ST Zelie’s feast day—and entrusting our work to her intercession. As she herself suffered from breast cancer, I will offer my daily trials in this work for your complete healing. Would you mind just shooting up a quick prayer for God’s will in this endeavor? Lots of continued love and daily prayers will continue your way!
