Quick update

My sister-in-law, Marilyn
She's not doing too well. They had to rush her to the hospital yesterday morning, she was having a difficult time breathing. This coming Friday she was suppose to go back down to Cincinnati, to have the stitches and staples removed from her head, where they've inserted a tube/shunt to start the chemo directly to her brain. They finally finished the radiation treatments to her spine this past Friday. Plus they've found a doctor in the Dayton area that can administer the chemo to her brain, saving them about a one and a half hour trip to Cincinnati each time she receives the chemo. But I don't know if her body is strong enough to even start the chemo to the brain. She has the worse case of pneumonia this doctor said he's ever seen, plus she has four other kinds of infection attacking her body. So once again, I'm asking for prayers to help her through this crisis with as little pain as possible. Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers.

I did send a comment yesterday with prayers for Marilyn. I thought it might not have landed with you as when I clicked on 'publish comment' my computer shut itself off, this was late last evening here. I didn't therefore know if it had been sent or not.
These computers!!!
Love and prayers Granny

I am so sorry and will pray for her. It has to be awful to have all this happen, I can't even imagine it, it makes me cry just to think of the pain she is suffering. God bless her and her family.
