Prayers for my daughter-in-law
Our most recent visit to CSA was a great time, but we had to return home to some bad news. My daughter-in-law that just turned 30 in December was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. We are very thankful that it was not lung cancer. She just lost her mother to lung cancer 4 months ago, and now this. She had been coughing for a couple months, and right before we left for CSA I told her to go get a second opinion, as her Dr. told her it was Asthma, so he put her on a inhaler, but it was not helping. She did listen though and I am so glad she did. Actually she returned to him, and he did a chest X-Ray and found the tumor. Anyway she is a trooper about this and is determined to win this, and I am glad she does. The oncologist told us on Monday that if a person is going to get cancer, this is the type to get, 90% survival rate which is awesome. It is going to be a long road for her as she has to have 12 kemo treatments,2 a month, so 6 months of that, then radiation on the tumor on her chest wall. She has one on her lymph nodes also. They have two children which are 12 and 2, so that gives her the srength to fight this. They have good insurance, but even the 10% that they have to pay will soon add up. I am in the process of getting a benefit organized for her to help with extra medical costs. I have wanted to write my review of my latest trip Dec.6th-13th, but just have not found the time with the Holidays and now this. I would like everyone to sneak in a little extra prayer for her, as we begin this journey to fight this horrible disease. I feel so bad for my son, and her father too, they both as the rest of us are so frightened, especially just after losing her mother. Prayers, prayers and more prayers that is what we need. Anyway Mike & Monica how was your trip? Sure enjoyed meeting you Larry & Judi hope everything is good with you.
