Dear Rose, just sending this sweet little angel to watch over you. My prayers are with you for the burdens you have to face right now. So many of them at once, no wonder you are "running on empty". Just "let go and let God"...I know its an old cliche, but there is isn't anything you can humanly possibly do that you aren't already doing. Just look after your precious self and know that our prayers and love surround you always.~~~~
Hugs and love

I am continuing to hold you up to the Lord in prayer Rose. I know that when things get so bad it seems we cannot take anymore, He brings strength from deep within. May you be rested and renewed in Him.
love and hope, sharon

Keeping you up to date...
Fran was discharged from the hospital yesterday as he really wanted to go home...He is still very weak but will have outside help coming in...What concerns me is that he will still need his dialysis three times a week which means transporting back and forth and I know this will surely wear him out. The dialysis wears him down as it is.. They are waiting on the catscan results to see if the cancer has spread or attached itself to any organs...When they see the report they will then decide what the care plan will be and if surgery is at all possible.
We all have mixed feelings about open surgery because of the chance of it spreading afterwards, but are in agreement that we want what's best for Fran and the final decision will have to be his.
When our Mom had cancer she suffered a great deal toward the end of her battle. It was so heart breaking because her pain was terrible and nothing seemed to help it..It mestisized and finally got into her brain as well so she didn't recognize any of us. I just don't want that for Fran
His wife told him about our Brother Russell's passing when they got home...He was upset but held together pretty well...He wants to sit and talk to me about it sometime this week. In all honesty I am dreading it..
They both want me to rewrite the obituary and put it in the local paper as none of the siblings were mentioned as Russell's friend couldn't remember all of our names.
Through all of this I have cooking, cleaning, shopping, my own doctor appts. and other family members to tend to and don't need anymore on my plate but what can I do? Couldn't say no..I will try to write it up in a few days.
Another thing Fran doesn't know yet is about my younger sister attempting suicide..Seems she got into trouble with drugs, alcohol and the law..What next?...Not sure how he will handle the news about Mary so Bonnie wants to wait in telling him..
I am so tired and worn out from all of this because when I try to rest the mind won't shut down and in between I am running on empty and just trying to sort it all out, hoping and Praying that somehow things will turn out for the better.
Please continue with your Prayers as all of this is far from over, I'm afraid. Everything just seems so unsettling right now.
Hugs and friendship,

Thanks for the update Rosie...I know that God is
holding Fran in the hollow of His Hands and things do happen in God's time...not ours. In
regard to your sister Mary...I am so sorry. I
wish some of us were closer to see her for you.
Sounds like you try to be all things for every
one in your family. I know that feeling, but I
do know also that sommetimes you have to take
time for 'self' as well. You must take care of
you as you have been through so much this past
year or so. My prayers and thoughts stay with
you. Sharing in your sadness, your sorrow and
your concerns. We lift you up to God in prayer.
Amen...Much love Sis..Mary Anne ^j^
Life is made of hope, strengthend by faith and
made richer by love and friendship...unknown

I have been praying for Rose and her family and have written her. I didn't see this notice. I pray that they are feeling the strength and love of all the prayers going up for them. What a difficult time.
Thank you for the update Rose, I shall continue to hold Fran up in prayer and you and your sister too. As you said, He will see you through, though it is not easy. God bless and keep you.

Fran is doing poorly..The cancer is making him very ill from vomiting and in doing so he is losing more and more blood. They keep giving more but he loses it as soon as they give it...His spirits are good and he is hopeful..
My sister that attempted suicide is still in the hospital too so I talk to her on the phone daily. It was so hard to tell her about Russell's death which I did last evening. After speaking with her therapist/doctor, they thought it best that I tell her while someone was there with her. I wanted the doctor to tell her so it would be handled appropriately but they said they couldn't...So I had to...She flipped out, just as I knew she would..Thank God the therapist was right there with her. Mary lives in Arizona so I am feeling helpless because I can't be there for her as she's always leaned on me, but now she can't..
Right now I feel I'm on an emotional rollercoaster but do know that He will see me through..
Have to get some things done around here and then head out the door to visit Fran...
More news as I hear it...
Thank you all for being so supportive and for listening to me ramble...
hugs and friendship,
