More Cancer

Monday, May 16, 2011

My younger sister, Barbara, age 60, went to the emergency room because she had difficulty breathing. The hospital stay lasted six days.

She has heart problems and colon cancer. She will have surgery in three weeks after some of the heart issues are treated. In other words she will have surgery with two heart blockages. Prayers are needed from all of you who pray, or just hold her in your heart.

Now all three siblings have faced cancer. Please get regular checkups, friends! And make all the healthy lifestyle changes you can!

    I'm so sorry that you and your sister have to deal with thus, but will definitely hold you up in prayer. I have 3 sisters in their 60's and would hate to have to watch them go through it.

    Thinking of you both -- with understanding, as my own eldest sister is currently suffering a series of small strokes. We are glad for every clear-headed day she has.
Prayers indeed, for the healing and welfare, the best kinds of well-being, of all of us!
Hugs to you,

    Will definitely keep a good thought. My family has been going through all this too, my mom and 2 sisters with breast cancer, my dad's youngest sister with breast cancer, and now my husband with prostate cancer. Sometimes it seems like it never rains but it pours.
Blessed be.

May God put His healing hands upon your sister and guide the doctors who are treating her. May He also bring a sense of peace to your heart that all will be according to His plan.

God Bless always
