My friend’s husband, Welton, is paraplegic and has a serious burn infection on his foot. He is going into surgery today. My friend’s parents, Norma and Roy are also in failing health (in their 80’s). Norma is awaiting biopsy results of a mass on her pancreas, and Roy is not doing too well himself. Norma’s sister Shirley has been diagnosed with advanced breast and bone cancer and will be on chemotherapy for the rest of her life. Kim has been diagnosed with breast cancer–facing mastectomy and chemo–and has no insurance.
Last night I found out my grandmother, Mona, is in the hospital with suspected heart failure and severe cellulitis in her legs. She is affraid to die.
My grandfather (not the one married to Mona), H.P., is suffering from end-stage emphysema and cancer in his liver, lymph nodes, and skin. He is going to have one of his jugular veins removed (where a tumor is growing) on his birthday at the end of Sept. He is also afraid to die and seems to be in denial of his medical condition. He is just literally skin and bones.
Thank you all so much for the gift of your prayers. I will pray my Divine Mercy Chaplet today for all who are interceding for these intentions. :highprayer:
