Dear Blog Friends, I have a dear friend who lives in Georgia and her family is going through an extremely hard time right now. She has always been there for me when I was down or frustrated and I want to help her all I can. I've blogged about her before and I refer to her as Y. Her daughter, E, found out a short time ago that she is expecting. But the joyous news was shortlived due to the finding of a tumor the size of a football in her abdomen. It is entertwined with her stomach, small intestines and leg. It's inoperable, but a port has been inserted to take chemo directly to the tumor. Apparently she has non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, and will undoubtedly lose the baby. They are relieved that her illness is treatable, but of course heartbroken about the baby. I grieve for them so badly. How do you deal with this kind of news? God will comfort, but we are weak and have trouble letting him take this kind of burden. Please lift this family up in your prayers.
