There have been several things that have happened in the last few years that have really made me fully believe in the title of this post. My husband's uncle was killed in a motorcycle accident and less than a year later his wife died unexpectedly. They left behind a grown child as well as a teenage daughter. A few years ago my mom, who is rarely sick, needed to have a hysterectomy. The doctors had told her that the problems she was having 98% of the time turned out to be cancer. She was in the lucky 2%. It really puts things in perspective when you find out that you might be loosing your mom.
This is exactly what my best friend is dealing with right now. She let me know today that the doctor has given her mom 8-10 weeks to live if she does not have surgery. They believe that the tumor she has is cancerous. If she does have surgery and goes through chemo, they are giving her 12-18 months. Her mom has said that she will not go through another surgery. I guess we will just have to wait and see what she decides to do.
Again, please, please pray that the family has the strength to get through this difficult time.
