Prayers, Please, everyone, from those of you who know of Martie.  I just got off the phone with Taylor.  Martie is in the hospital.  She had a seizure this evening, and the doctors believe she has a brain tumor.

When Taylor called me, he didn't have much more information than that.  I will gather more information as I can, and I know Taylor will call as he knows more.

For now, your prayers are what she needs.

Thank you.

Anything that touches Martie's life, touches mine in equal measure. All my love and all my thoughts and prayers are with her at this time. I hope that Tyler will be aware of all the love that pours out from the heart of Passions and that he can convey this to her.
MArtie is the most talenteed poet I have ever known personally, but way beyond that, a genuine friend, a thing that is very hard to come by these days.
LOve you, MArtie

Heard from Taylor about 10 minutes ago.

Martie has a 4 cm tumor in the right frontal lobe close to the scalp.  Martie's brother is on the scene as well, and is keeping Taylor fully apprised.

They may, or may not, take out the tumor immediately.  It will depend on a few other factors.  According to what Taylor has learned, the tumor is "calcified and slow growing".  This sounds very similar to what my husband underwent a few years ago, and I know now for Martie, as I knew then for my husband, that you will all surround Martie with prayers.

From all accounts, this tumor is benign.  The doctors say that the tumor has been there "for some time".  The seizure was natures way of waking everyone up to the fact that the tumor is there.

Martie is currently at the Kaiser Hospital in Los Angeles.  Taylor is extremely thankful for everyone, as he knows very well that it was prayer that pulled him through when he was undergoing his cancer and subsequent treatment, not to mention the assistance of the doctors, and the support of his friends and family.

Taylor said he would be calling me as he learns more.  I have both of my cell phones with me, and I will update all of you as we hear more.  Martie is rallying from the seizure, and her first concern is, of course, that Taylor get some rest.

Thank you all for responding.  I know Martie is in good hands.

God bless every one of you.

Right now I treasure an email exchange of several emails, I had with Martie some 12 hours ago

My prayers are also with Martie

Her spirit and that of Michelle is in my soul

My gratitude also extends to Enchantress for letting me know this thread was here to respond

It is good that the doctors have found the source of her seisure ~ now they can fix the problem! I am relieved that they believe that it is benign and to learn that it is not deep in the brain but is near the surface for easier access.

This must be so frightening for Martie and I am sending her my love, strength, comfort and prayers for healing.

With Love,
Linda

OH my, but this leaves me shaking this morning. I will keep her and her family close to my heart today, and the coming weeks. As I am in the process of packing and moving again, (unexpectedly) I may not have many chances to be online during the next week or two. But a mutual friend here at Pips will keep me posted.
Martie..hugs to you my sweet sister-in-love. My  strongest candles of healing shall be lit and  glowing for your speedy recovery.

It is so very sad hearing this. Of all the people I've had the pleasure to meet on this site Martie has to be the nicest and kindest of them all. I'm wishing her the very best to get through this. As the doctors said, it could have been the body's way of letting someone know that something needed taking care of. In that case, this would be considered a blessing, an event to prevent disaster down the road. That's a good thing...

Thinking of you, Martie

I also just want to add my prayers for one of the sweetest, kindest, most caring people I think I have ever met.  I am glad they got the tumor now and have it controlled, and look forward to reading good news.  Hang in there Taylor, Martie has angels all around her as you know, and tons of prayers, and love pouring in from around the globe.

Count me in on this gathering of care and love.  Martie is surely one of the gentlest of souls.  Ken
