A Mother’s Prayer

Marty TackettNews

Dear Family and Friends:
I am devoting this report entirely to Amy Walker.  As you recall, we have been lifting her up in our prayers for some time now.  April, 2018 was my first meeting with Ms. Amy.  Newly diagnosed with AML, Acute Myoblastic Leukemia. She at first responded well to the chemotherapy.  Was later transferred to Birmingham, AL for further treatment.  Amy had a good Christmas being able to stay home and see her two sons, now 11 & 15. Her fiance’, Rody has stood by her this entire time. She was on the pill chemotherapy.
ALL, she is asking from everyone is prayer at this time:
Hi Ms. Marty.  Wanted to touch base.  I had another biopsy done Jan. 10, my results show that the new chemo pill I am on is no longer working.  This after 2 months. In December we had gone down to less than 5% leukemia cells.  Now, we are climbing back up.  We are running out of options.  I will be admitted Monday on the 28th (In Birmingham) to start a 28 day IV infusion treatment.  Ten days admitted, the rest at home with health care nurse changing my IV bag every day. In 28 days I have another biopsy.  I will get a two week break and then another 28 days of round 2 as before.  I have to be in remission to be considered for a bone marrow transplant.  But….I can’t get into remission.
I have placed myself in God’s hands, though.  I will continue being positive and continue praying. But, this is my last option.  I am getting blood transfusions twice a week.  I will go for now.  Luv y’all
Amy is just 34 years young.
Lamentations 3: 22-26
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; They are new every morning; Great is YOUR faithfulness.  “The Lord is MY portion”, says my soul, “therefore I will hope in Him”. The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seek Him.  It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
