Please pray!

Can you please join me in praying for a family in need? They have been thru so much and the new mother has just suddenly and unexpectantly died. She was going thru chemo for breast cancer while pregnant and also had bleeding problems with the pregnancy on top of that,and delivered a baby by emergency C-section and all seemed well….until a couple of days ater when she started suffereing horrible headaches and vomiting….which progressed to a massive seizure,and ended up with her on a ventilator and life-support,and was just declared brain-dead yesterday. This is so tragic and so sad. It would appear she perhaps suffered a blot clot form the surgery,causing a stroke.Please pray for this hurting family; for her soul,and for the devastated husband and young family she has left behind, incl. a 2 week old baby who will grow up never knowing her mother.This is heartbreaking. Please remember them in your prayers.

Our war against cancer.

Our son’s app’t went well! His blood-counts have dropped down a slight bit lower than last time but still within normal range. Now, the app’ts will be spaced to every 6 mos. instead of every 2 mos. until he has safely passed the 5 year mark,and then it will be yearly for life! I am always so apprehensive and worried awaiting the results, fearful it could show at any time the cancer’s back,and it’s always such a deep relief when everything comes back normal! Thanks be to God! It was 4 years ago he was diagnosed,and 2 years since he ended chemo, but the possibility of relapse IS always there; like a dark black cloud always hanging over us. I try NOT to dwell on the possibility or think about it too much, as I can’t even go there; going thru it once was hard enough; I can’t even IMAGINE it again.They were pushing for psychological and educational evaluations again as well which we declined; we find it too intrusive.We homeschool, so we KNOW how he’s doing academically,anyway.He’s growing well, too; since the last app’t he has gained 2 pounds and grown 2 inches; he’s now 5 feet tall and 88 pounds; not bad for an 11 year old,huh, esp. one who battled leukemia,yet I still can’t shake this gnawing,nagging,sinking fear the cancer WILL come back,though;either creep in slowly, or hit us full-force when we least expect it; it’s always hanging there, hovering over me, in the back of my mind,but I hope and pray he’s of the 75% that DO survive and where it doesn’t return,but you never know; that’s the hardest part, but God will never forsake us and He carries us thru our darkest and most uncertain and perilous moments.
