I very much hate to bother everyone for prayers, but if you think of it, could you say one for me?

I've not been feeling very well at all these past two years, and it seems to be worsening. Two years ago I accidentally injured myself and went into severe emotional shock because of the consequences. Now I think the emotional strain has affected my gastro-intestinal tract and for half a year these problems have been tormenting me. I kept going to the GP, but it seems it is not gettting better. In September I am due to see the Gastroenterologist.  Also, in general I am just not feeling well. Much of it is emotional stress/sorrow, but it is also affecting my physical health  now too.

Please pray that God will hear my cry and help me. Thanks so much for your kindness.

Lord have mercy on your handmaiden, Rosehip.

Saint Timothy, please obtain relief for Rosehip.

I have had chronic stomach issues, so I know it makes every aspect of your day uncomfortable and difficult.

Lord, have mercy on Your faithful handmaiden Rosehip!

I am very glad that you will see a good specialist. May the Lord grant him or her wisdom and patience to investigate your illness thoroughly and to find you a good, meaningful treatment!

Just a quick update. This week I had a colonoscopy and spoke with the GI specialist. The diagnosis is a tumor in the lower rectum, which requires urgent attention. Next week I'll be consulting with the surgeon as to the biopsy results, surgery plans etc. and having a CT scan.

This came as rather a shock for me, even though I really wasn't feeling well. Somehow I always thought it would go away and get better, or that I was merely being a hypochondriac.

So, I really and truly covet most earnestly your prayers on my behalf. Please remember me.
