Default Latest news on Fran 1 Nov 10

Good evening,

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.

TDH

Thinking of both you.

I will continue to pray for you both but won't be checking CM while I'm on my cruise - seems that they block access to CM. God bless you.

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.
