Unhappy Need your prayers

I just got bad news. My grandmother that I've always been closest too has been battleing cancer for a while. But evertime she has kicked it, it would return and they would have to try another treatment on her. Well this next week is her last try for one other treatment b/c it came back this year and she has taken several different treatments and nothing will kill it. So the doctors have one more alternative treatment for her, but she has less than a 50% chance survival rate. So this weekend maybe my last weekend with her unless God performs some kind of miracle.

I will keep her and your family in my prayers. Please keep us informed on her condition.

she is going in for her appointment with the Doctor on Monday morning and then I guess then they will give her a schedule on how they will proceed. But I think they will do it quick. I went and saw her yesterday at home, of coarse she was sleeping the most of the time b/c she is on Morphine just to try to keep some of the pain away. I just remember getting all teary eyed when talking to her when she said "Whats wrong with me?, I dont want to die, but I am not afraid too" and the she started crying I know her day is going to be up sometime, but I just hate seeing her in so much pain and then it will be even more painfull when she starts that new Kemo. But I know before she wants to go through with it because she said earlier what do I have to loose?
Please God heal her if you are willing... But if it is her time I understand

she is going on with the treatment. Doctors said that if she dosent take the treatment and remains on pain killer she would have maybe a week or two left to live. But if she takes the treatment she has less than a 50% chance of surviving the treatment, but if the treatment works, she might have a few more months to live. I dont really think they think this Kemo will kill it, probably will just slow it down if she can survive it.

Thats really a tough situation to be in Lance. Remember, I lost my grandmother a few months back and it's hard to deal with. Just remember that God is faithful and just. Satan sucks and before long there will be no more death.

Thanks, it has been a bad week so far. But grandma seems to be doing good on the kemo so far and she is in good spirit.

I think she is doing ok, but now that the Kemo has taken her immune system down even more, now she has the shingles. So no telling what will happen now. She is in God's hands.

well, she has sucessfully completed the Kemo and the tumors have shrunk, but the doctors say they are coming back so it looks as if it just buying her some time. But I guess hopefully I can spend Christmas and Thanksgiving with her

she is doing ok right now, her arm is swollen more than it ever has been, but her pain is down to a minimum. She is just trying to get her white blood cell count up so she can try another treatment. She is not GIVING UP Thats probably one of the things I admire about her the most

Thank you guys for all your prayers, but I found out yesterday that the doctors are pulling her off most anibiotics and other medicine and they are only giving her a few days to a week or so to live. I will be there and visit with her on Sat. This may be my last weekend to see her. I think the good Lord is taking her But as hard as it is, I will try to be joyfull that she is going to a better place.

Well, Grandma died this morning around 1:00 am. I got to see her and speak with her on Saturday, but that evening she went to sleep and didnt ever wake up. She was like in a sleeping state untill 1:00 this moring when the nurses tried to adjust a pillow she was on and then her heart stopped. I kinda think her spirit was gone long before then and her body had not yet given up. Its surpose to be a joyous day, but its still sad.... Im going to miss her

What the heck is going on around here? There are two pastors wifes in my church that are fighting cancer and my mother-in-law is battling it also! We need to bind this spirit now!
