Kathy, you know that I'll continue to pray for your family. It often seems as if there's never an end to all the bad news but all you can do is simply look to the Lord in times like these.

Oh, Kathy, I am so sorry your brother's health has not improved.
Please keep us posted - he will be in our prayer every day.

We know how scary chemo can be...with your mother in law's age and condition perhaps it is too much for her to face. One thing I have learned about cancer treatments (when facing it myself), is to trust and support each persons choice. I know this is especially difficult with a family member - my mother had a few radiation treatments then stopped. She was ready to be with my dad and made that choice. It was with a clear mind and that doesn't sound like the case with you mil. I am so sorry, especially for Mark.

Holding all near in heartfelt prayer each day.

She's also starting to hallucinate or something as she tells Mark and his sister the oddest of things.

You may all recall that my brother has had many medical problems over the years and had a major heart problem about 18 months ago. He went for his follow up visit this past Friday and the doctor told him the heart is NOT getting better, the medicine is not working and that the only thing they can do for him is a heart transplant. I have no idea where he is going from here, but I do know he goes for another test on Wednesday.

Please keep them both in your prayers.
My goodness, Kathy. I can't believe the deluge of bad news you've had recently. We will keep them both in our prayers. Is there anything else you guys need?

Wow Kathy. What a roller coaster you have been on lately. I will of coarse continue to be praying and hope for more happy news than sad.
