Update report

Just wanted to give you all an update on the "grandma" from our church. She finally came home from the hospital on Friday. She is taking a regular chemo pill for 5 days and then I believe she is off for a month to check how things are going. Regular IV chemo would not be good for her heart. She made it to church yesterday morning. She was tired but did not get sick from the pill the previous night so all seems to be going well. They did a cat scan on her brain and did not see anything there. But then last night, Hubert informed me that their daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer last week and their insurance will not be kicking in until another month or two.
You know, sometimes it just seems like it's one thing after another. I know you all know the feeling. So I'm sure they would appreciate any prayers for their family yet.

That is so sad! It does just seem like some families get hit with everything at one time.
I will add them to my prayer list.

I know what you mean. My friend Nina's husband has had that too. His mom had breast cancer twice and his dad struggled with cancer on and off for like ten years and he finally died last year. Even their dog died of cancer. It makes you feel so guilty, like "Why do I have it so good? I'm certainly not any better than them." And you don't know what to say to these people because if I was them I'd be thinking "You don't have a clue what it's like." And I dont. So I guess all we can do it pray like crazy and support them when they need us right?
