I just got off the phone with MrsSunbum and things are not good. She asked me to let everyone know what is going on, so here goes...

Her mom is very ill. When I spoke to her this weekend she said the cancer has spread to her mom's liver and her lungs. Tonight she told me her mom is struggling to breathe. Hospice was brought in to the home today to care for her mom, to make her as comfortable as possible. Elaine has tried to wake her a few times and her mom is in a tremendous amount of pain when she's awake, so they let her sleep. Elaine has asked for all of your prayers that tonight her mom passes in peace. They've already had the priest in and she's not expected to last the night, though Elaine is holding on to what little hope there is that she'll survive the night. She mostly just wants the pain to be gone and for her mom to pass to the next life as painlessly as possible. Please pray for Elaine and her family for strength during this difficult time.

With all the stress right now, Elaine also told me that Dawn is supposed to have surgery tomorrow to remove her ovaries because the estrogen is feeding her cancer. Dawn doesn't know if she's going to actually go through with the surgery even though she really needs it. Elaine has asked that we pray for Dawn so that she knows in her heart what's best for her mind, body, and spirit.

Finally, her father had surgery on his foot last week and the hospice nurse discovered that he has an infection from the surgery, complicated because of his diabetes. I won't go into details, but he MUST go to the doctor tomorrow. Elaine said he is very frightened, he's afraid he's losing his wife and of his own very dangerous health problems.

I guess they say things come in threes, but Elaine's got about as much on her shoulders as one person can handle. Please send her as much positive thoughts and prayers so she can make it through whatever lay ahead for her this week. I know she'll appreciate every prayer and thought from you guys. Thank you.
