When we all think we have it so bad......

  1. I have a friend who has a granddaughter with cancer (I'm unsure as to exactly which type). This girl is 12 and has been suffering greatly. She just got out of the hospital the other day.

    Here's the kicker....six weeks ago, they found out that her little 18 month old brother has brain cancer and is in bad shape in the ICU.

    so, when we all think we have it so bad, think of that family. And please, if you pray, say some prayers for their peace. They need them.

    Thanks. Its good to be reminded that you should be really greatful for whatever good health you have. I don't pray but I hope your friends pull through these hard time okay and that, if you are struggling with them, that you pull through okay too.

    Oh dear God...I will include them in my prayers. I don't even want to imagine what their life must be like.

    Thank you guys. She is an "internet friend" so I don't know the family that well but I was shocked and saddened to hear of the "new" news. They are looking at an environmental cause apparently.

    How very sad for that family. I am always grateful for my family's health and try not to take it for granted. WE never know what may happen. I feel for that family, Kim!!! Send em warm thoughts from Seattle, will you please?

    From me too, prayers and thoughts going out. Unfortunately, proving environmental causes takes a LOOOOOONNNNGGG time, and dedicated investigators to draw any substantial connections. Just impressions gathered from articles I've read.
    But that doesn't change the events happening in their lives. Again, am thinking of them. -- D

    Thanks again. I will send on wishes from everyone the next time I chat with her. This just makes me so incredibly grateful for the three beautiful healthy children that I have.
