Well, as some of you well know... MY MIL was dx'd w/ pancratic cancer (stage 4) Nov 4th. Well then a week maybe 2 later, her cousin was dx'd w/ the SAME cancer only her's had matastized (sp?), then you couple that w/ her brother who has been fighting colorectal cancer for a year now.

WERE GETTING TRIPLE SLAMMED.

WEll MIL is still doing chemo/radiation route.. doing so so, if she would stop getting infections in her chemo port.

"COUSIN" just found out today, she is in the hospital, and they said she MIGHT have two weeks left and are keeping her comfortable.

"Brother" cant have the surgery (removal of colon,prostate, bladder, and rectum) cause now they found out he has a heart issue, and has to go in next week for a "possible" either stint/ Emergent Bipass, and if it isnt them two, then he has a bad muscle in a chamber in his heart... if so.. he wont be able to have the surgery.

SOOO NEEDLESS TO SAY! were in for a ROUGH ROUGH RIDE for the next few weeks to a year!!!!:Bawling:

giraffe baby - prayers for the best for you and your family.

I think you're going to need a lot of cups of comforting tea (or other) to get through all this with your family.

Well i honestly think my childhood prepared me for days like that! WE take it day at a time and deal w/ whats DIRE that day! I think thats why we are as happy today as we were 17 yrs ago!

As a child (oldest) i had to care for my siblings(4 others) and 1 had cerebral palsey, and one had mental challanges. Then as an adult, I had my own child w/ medical needs. AND now all this MEDICAL drama.. I think thats just what has been my plot in life to deal w/ medical issues!! AND my youngest, wants to be a doctor, and Oldest a VET! ( all medical too!)

Thank you all for your prayers!! Heading out to the School to volunteer :)
