Stacey, my heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I know you have your interview tomorrow and it will be hard to stay focused. Know that you will be lifted in prayer and thoughts. Take care.

You guys are great friends! I don't know how my sister is going to handle this. Not only losing her husband, but, his family when he is gone. They are the kind that leaches from you for life. They always made him do things that needed to be done, because he's got his own company therefore the money, which, is really not true. His 3 brothers and sister have always worked for him. I dread what is coming from them and his worthless kids. He hasn't even seen 2 of them in about 10 years, but, I'll bet she will get it from them too. It's a real mess and I'm afraid for my sister's sanity. Thank you for your loving thoughts and if you will, keep my sister and bil in your prayers.

That is just so sad! I hope he is able to beat the odds or at least prepare himself and his family for what is to come!

I'm so sorry to hear this Stacy. My prayers are with your family.

My son goes in tomorrow morning to see a surgeon. The lump on the neck is not a lymph node but a mass of some sort. Although the blood count came out normal and doesn't show signs of cancerous cells he will probably need a biopsy to check what it is. Please keep him in your prayers.

Dina, you and your son are both in my prayers. I know how frightening this must be for you. I am glad you have gotten the appointment so quickly.
