Fran was again admitted to the hospital this evening with a tentative diagnosis of jaundice. She had become so weak she couldn't even stand.
They don't know the cause but we (meaning Fran and me) have to understand that the cancer may have spread to her liver and/or spleen. We pray that's not the case but it is a very distinct possibility as her type of cancer while chronic, is nevertheless, one of the most dangerous kind.
Thank you all for your continuing prayers and forgive me for not even doing that much lurking much less posting but I'm sure you understand.
Of course please know that my prayers and request for Blessings continue unabated for my beloved Cruisemates.
Oh Todd I am so sorry to hear this news. Hang in there my dear and know we're here for you when need a friend to lean on or someone to listen. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you both.
Gee Todd I don't know what to say. I know we all wish Fran the best and will continue praying for her. Take care of yourself as hard as it may be.
Thinking of both you.
Need some cruise help?

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Todd and Fran my prayers are with you. I pray for peace and courage for both of you.
My hubby and I have spoken frequently as we get older about how hard it will be on the one who is left to go it alone.
And Luanne my prayers continue to go up for your as well, since the loss of your son.
My sister has lost two adult children and suffered a miscarriage when she was young. It is a terrible burden for a parent to bear.
