    Default Prayers Needed for My Family

    As many of you know my BIL has been fighting a very rare form of cancer. There has not been a case of this type in Missouri since the 1980's. I got a phone call today, that rocked my world. My BIL is one of the kindest, most giving, gentle men that I have ever known. He has been married to my sister for 40 yrs. This is going to be a harder road for all of us for a bit. Please keep my sis, her DH, and their family in your thoughts and prayers. This is her post from FB from earlier today:

    This has been a really rough day for my family...As you all know, Gerry has battling cancer for 2.5 years now...Well, today we got the news that we knew was coming, but still extremely hard to hear...
    The Dr's told us, that there is nothing else treatment wise that can be done...The tumor in his abdomen is starting to choke everything off...They are going to put him on a Chemo treatment that is to taken 5 days in a row...He has to stay in the hospital for the treatment. ..The treatment is could possibly shrink the tumor a bit, but mostly to try to keep it from growing so evasively...We talked about surgery, but that is not an option..Because the tumor is pretty much attached to everything, they would have to reconstruct everything in his abdomen. ..The Dr. told us that it could be days, weeks, but no longer than 6 months to a year.. PLEASE say prayers for him & his family...He will get to come home though hopefully....They are trying to get his pain in check so he is not suffering. ..
    Blankets wrap you in warmth, quilts wrap you in love

    Marilyn, I saw your post on FB, but I didn't know what it was about. Prayers for your sister and family as you go through this. We're here if you need to talk or vent or whatever.
