Another Rott Needs Your Prayers

The beast has struck another member of our family. Irish Dragon’s wife Carolyn has been diagnosed with an as of yet unknown form of cancer. As you probably know Dragon is an active duty Marine, which adds an extra dimension to this fight.

Carolyn is scheduled for her first round of chemo September 9 and Dragon has been granted some leave to tend to her. Let’s add Dragon and Carolyn to our list and get some prayers outbound pups, they’re needed.

Thank you.



  1. 1

    Prayers out and downrange ….. I just read this as the wife, our 4 year old daughter, and I were getting ready to have lunch ….

    Crunchie…give them my address, and Marys too if you have it. You can tell them anything you want regarding us. How would I contact them?……Mary could be of enormous help here, she wants to….I hope the Corps lets him come home……he won’t think straight. I know I haven’t.
    Mary is progressing, chemo half done, no adverse reactions. Wednesday the big day when they give her the Mylotarg….that may hurt her….first of two doses, two weeks apart…..and then , we wait…you already know the numbers. They haven’t changed.
    So many of us, Matt, Mary, and others too…and now Carolyn….I am prayin’, Crunch……
    Thank God for the Rotties…………….

    It’s been four years since cancer took my wife from us. At least my second daughter is still around and cancer-free, they were diagnosed a few months apart.
    Saint Roch, this sinner begs a boon of thee, that thy healing power be sent to Mary and Carolyn, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  10. 10

    Father God,
    Why must there be so much pain? We pray in Your Name that those suffering are relieved by You, and at peace with You. That those given this test pass it, to come to You, or remain here with the Faith in You to spread to others.

    I’ve been communicating with Carolyn, Crunch…..she is a delightful soul, explaining her malady, seems to have a strong resolve to get past this. I pray she does. Gawd, I feel for her husband, I know that agony, down home and personal like. Far too many people know it……far too many…..

    I hate this disease.

    The Irish Dragon growls and barks:

    Carolyn and I thank you all for the prayers and support. She is keeping more positive about this than I am, I’m afraid. The specialist who is going to be treating her is one of the best in the country, so we’ve got that going for us.

  24. 24
    LC Gregory growls and barks:

    Thank God for that.

    Dragon, I know this is small comfort, but I’m prayin’, too. And there have been some AMAZING advances in medical technology over the last three decades.

    Just know that a whole bunch of Rotties are standing with you, and that He DOES hear prayer!

    UPDATE: The type of cancer Carolyn has is appendicital, specifically Mucinous Adenocarcinoma.

    It is definitely treatable, Irish Dragon…… After reading up on it yesterday……your lady, and you, remain in our prayers…always. Oddly enough I am sitting in a big room, my wife receiving her last day of out patient chemo…….and then tomorrow the big day, the powerful stuff, Mylotarg, along with a bone marrow biospy. We will be here all day………
    I understand fully your fear, in truth I share it…….and the sadness and frustration.
    All the best…………………you’re on our prayer list.
