PAG, you have been there for me, and now I return it openly and gladly. My love, hugs, thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. I do know how difficult it is to watch someone decline like that and there is nothing that you can do.

PM me if there is anything I can do - even just "listen".

Many sincere wishes for as much peace of mind as can be had in these difficult hours, for her and your family.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

I'm so very sorry to hear this. Stupid cancer :( I will say a prayer.

My husband's sister has been batteling intestinal cancer for about 4 years. A year ago we found out she had tumors in several lymph-nodes, her liver, and one of her lungs. Last January the chemo stoped working. The tumors weren't shrinking and had started growing again. Yesterday we found out the cancer has spread to her brain. The doctors said she has about a month. Anything beyond that is luck or a miracle.

If you pray, could you please keep her in your prayers. Her name is Tena. I can't imagine how frightened and sad she must be fealing, please pray that she is given comfort and strength. She needs all that she can get. If you don't pray, she could use all the positive energy and thoughts you can spare.

Could you please also keep her family in your prayers. She is at the center of the family, the one who keeps in touch with everyone and holds everyone together. It's hit us all pretty hard. Losing someone is never easy, but losing the one that keeps the family feeling like a family, instead of just a group of people who share genetics, comes with worries and sorrow beyond the loss of that person.

For me, she was the first of my husband's family to accept me. To this day her and her sons are the only ones that have really embraced me as belonging. I can't pretend to know what my husband or the others are feeling, but I know I'm losing a dear friend and ally. I'm losing a sister.
so sad for her and you as well. all my most postive thoughts are on the way.

Prayers sent for Tena and the family. It's a difficult thing to go through, I just was there last year with my mama. Try to remember that you and the family need to take care of yourselves as well.

Thank you everyone. You are all greatly appreciated.

My thoughts are with you and your family Purple

Take care of yourselves

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
