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. Elise, I will keep you in my prayers along with your family. Please would you pray for my children to come back to the Church? They are all adults now in their 20s and have pulled away from the faith. As of today, my son doesn’t believe in God. Your prayers would be very appreciated. And God bless you, your husband and your beautiful children. Denise Theriot Eagan

  5. Elise,
    You are such an inspiration and a fighter. I have immediately lifted you up to the Lord for the Gamma Knife to get rid of those 2 tumors and that your brain will not be affected. Also, all the praise goes to His Glorious name for continued healing. Gwen and I will continue to lift you up as we have done for several years now.

    God Bless and heal you and give you the joy and peace you always expound in your posts,
    Mitch and Gwen

  12. Love You, Elise. Praying as always for you. Will add some extras. Please pray for Maureen. She has developed Graves disease and her baby will be born by C-section on July 1st. She has some complications. She also has 2 Uterus’s. So always tricky. This time she has Placenta Previa. The doctor is concerned because if anything goes wrong like he would knick the placenta because of it’s tight position, he would quickly have to do a hysterectomy. A very tricky procedure for the double uterus. He says he does not want to do that surgery in an emergency situation. So pray for no glitches, please. I know Jesus Will take care of everything, for both of you. Love you dear heart. ~ Barb Agnew

  23. What a blessing you are to people! I will be praying for you, my sweet friend!
    My prayer request is that you would pray for my husband, Paul. Last November, he was diagnosed with 25% kidney function as a result of his diabetes. This week he was told that he has a heart murmur. We know God is in control. He is still able to work & be a daddy at home. I am very thankful for those blessings. However, I sometimes freeze when I am praying because I want to pray for God’s will but I fear His will is different from what I want/need. This is when I think of you & your ministry. I am so thankful for you, Elise!!

    Much Love from the Hoods!!!

    • I very much understand what you mean of being afraid to let go to God’s will. That feeling of wondering what He’d do with that kind of control can be frightening!
      But when I thought about how many prayers from the past had seemed unanswered but in grand scheme, God had me covered all along… I started seeing how often He had been in every moment of so many of my roughest patches and I had failed to see him.
      He’s Got us. Sometimes it takes falling hard to have two free hands to let go and reach for him like a child. My case? I had to fall A LOT to learn🤷‍♀️😳😂. #slowlearnerIguess😅😉
      His timing and plans are always better than mine. I can get pretty cocky thinkin’ I’m all that, and I know more than the big Guy.🙄
      And He still brings me back and gives me the grace (& then some)to deal with His new plan 🙌

  24. My best friend Stephanie is going to have gamma knife radiation on a brain tumor in the coming months at MD Anderson in Houston. It is not cancerous, but it has been growing, and the doctors want to stunt its growth. She had surgery to remove much of the tumor a couple of years ago. She’s a little claustrophobic and concerned about the whole process.

    Thank you for being a ray of light and hope and extending God’s love to so many people. May God continue to keep you in His hand and close to his heart so that you can continue to share his love.

    • Tell Stephanie that I’ll be praying for her🙏🙏🙏. Remind her to ask for them to play some good music and to turn the volume up so she doesn’t have to strain to hear so she can relax and be distracted by good relaxing tunes. (I ask for contemporary christian and zone out in prayer for intentions from everyone. It distracts me from my own long time claustrophobia since childhood. Gave it to God, Now… no more claustrophobia!

    • Thank you for your prayers and rest assured that I’ll be adding your intention to your family members healing of hard hearts and hurts through all of this🙌. Remember your prayers and consistent example is where you have the chance to sow and plant the seeds, but GOD will make them grow in His timing. I’ve learned through MANY years of praying for very close family members that we never know what God is doing in them personally when neither of us just don’t know it yet! “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. God’s greatest masterpieces which are normally the most challenging with the greatest outcome … take time. But I’ll pray for you to perservere in HOPE!
