I am requesting prayer for my oldest brother Billy Tatum.  


He is 41-yrs-old. In 1993, my brother was diagnosed with HIV. He is a Born Again Believer.

It's very difficult to discuss this matter. But I know "nothing is too hard for the Lord to fix, make new, restore, replace, re-do, etc.

My brother  talked with me a few months ago about how everything makes him feel. He spoke in terms of being tired and ready to go "home" meaning Heaven, but he really doesn't want to go. He says he just gets tired, and longs to go. He had a stroke (on the left side of his body), and a seizure a little over a week ago.


He was released from the hospital and was receiving medical attention/physical therapy at home with my sister. However, he was recently re-admitted back into the hospital to treat a bed-sore (intravenously) that he received from his last stay at the hospital.


Just today my sister called me and told me he wasn't doing very well.


I Believe God!!!!!!




James 5:15a


I made a video of my brother so you can see who he is. He is an Artist, and the art work in this video are his original drawings.


Thanks in advance for your prayers.


He is in St. Joseph's Hospital in Paterson. NJ Room #666




The Song Playing in the background of the video is his favorite song "It's Over Now".

I will remember your brother in prayer.
Thank you
My sister says the doctor told her these words: "I'm not giving up on your brother. I'm going to help him fight this. He's going to be alright."
She says she never heard a doctor say anything like that before.
She said the doctor said that on 5/12/10 after he did an MRI on my brother to determine what the mass on his brain was.
She says the doctors still aren't sure what it is. They want to do another test where they go in through his mouth and take a sample of what's on his brain and run tests on it.
Though his situation looks grim....the Lord can still deliver him!

The song I hear in my spirit right now is:

Thank you all for your prayers.

We are on the winning team. In Him, we are more than conquerors!
Thanks G, Yes we are!
This is a quick update as of an hour ago, my brother wasn't responding very well, so their going to insert a tube in him to help feed him, and give him fluids. He also had a fever of 102. But my sister told me the doctor pulled her to the side and told her to tell my brother; "Don't give up. Keep fighting." I don't know who this Dr. is, but it appears to me that God is using him. My God, I thank you for being right there for my brother. You're a very present help in time of trouble. Thank you for Helping us Lord.

I'm not sure what the Lord is doing, but He is doing something.
I'm strengthened in my inner man. I have the peace of God all over me.

It's gonna be alright.

Lord Help Me
This is a song I wrote this weekend. This was all I could say to the Lord. This one's for my brother.
"I can't win this without you. Lord Help Me. I can't fight this without you."
Those were the words the Lord gave me. This is what the Dr. told my sister to tell my brother to do.
This is the edited version.

A Good Report
On Yesterday morning, my brother had my sister to call me, and he whispered these words to me on the phone: "I'M NOT GIVING UP."

He was able to speak these four words to me while using the feeding tube that has been inserted into him through his nose. I'm encouraged to hear this.
Thank God for allowing him to have "The Will To Fight."

...Fight the GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH...I Timothy 6:12a
...the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong...Ecclesiastes 9:11
...weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning...Psalms 30:5c,d


May God grant your brother continued perserverance through the storms.. what amazing strength in the Lord.. May the Lord strengthen us all as we grow through these trials and may faith cast out all of the firey darts of the enemy, even now, for the glory of God.
As of now, my brother is waiting to have a brain biopsy to determine what the mass on his brain is. Each time they have scheduled it, they always have to reschedule it because he gets a high fever.

I've been asking the Lord why that keeps happening. I'm just praying that the Lord will guide, and that He will not let anything happen that shouldn't happen.

The definition of a brain biopsy is: "the removal of a small piece of brain tissue for the diagnosis of abnormalities of the brain, such as Alzheimer's disease, tumors, infection, or inflammation."

Advantages*It provides an opportunity to examine brain tissue directly.

*It's invasive and includes the risks of surgery and anesthesia.
*It leads to removal of brain tissue and may be associated with brain injury.
*It leaves a scar on the brain that can potentially trigger seizures.

My comfort and strength for us is knowing what Jesus has spoken:
"Lo, I am with you always"....St. Matthew 28:20
I Love You Jesus.

*The King James Bible

I thank God for Sister Patricia Ann Blaine, and the note she sent out entitled
"Just For Today". My family really needed the Lord to breath into my brother because he couldn't. His breathing was faint this morning, and he was going into a cardiac arrest.
That message was for us.

He was placed on life support today in order to stablize his heart, and to help him breath. God was right there with him. My brother was able to tell them before they hooked him up to all those machines..."I'm not gonna give up" They tried three times (and failed) to sedate him in order to place him on life support The doctors, and nurses stood amazed at his strength, and will to live.

The Lord is helping my brother to breath again.

"I'm Not Gonna Give Up."

My brother was placed on Life-Support Sunday, May 23, 2010.
The doctors felt this was best for him because his heart was going into cardiac arrest, and his breathing was faint. Today, May 27, 2010 my brother was taken off life-support, he's breathing on his own, looking around, responding, he is doing well!!!!!!!!
I still believe in MIRACLES!!!!
God is still working. Psalms 119:126
