    Alyssa is my younger, 25 year old sister, in good shape...

    My mom sent me this e-mail this morning...(sorry about the caps, I copied & pasted and she ALWAYS writes in caps)

    I THINK ALYSSA IS REALLY SICK
    SHE WENT BACK IN FOR MORE TESTS........
    SHE HAS LOST 7 POUNDS SINCE LAST WEEK
    HER BLOOD WORK IS WORSE ALL HER LEVELS ARE GOING UP
    AND THEY FOUND THE SAME THING IN HER BONES AS IN HER LIVER
    THE ONLY TIME YOU FIND THESE LEVELS ARE WITH PROSTATE CANCER OR TESTICULAR CANCER. SINCE SHE HAS NONE OF THOSE.. SHE THINKS SHE MAY HAVE CANCER OF SOMETHING ELSE.
    AND I THINK SHE MAY ALSO...SHE IS REALLY SCARED AND SO AM I.
    ALL THESE LEVELS ARE NOT RIGHT..THEY THINK THE LIVER THING IS CAUSED FROM THE BONES.
    I LOOKED UP NON HODGKINS LYMPHOMA AND SHE HAS ALOT OF ISSUES WITH THIS CANCER. WEIGHT LOSS, NIGHT SWEATS,BELLY PAIN,BONE PAIN,EXTREME FATIGUE,SHE HAS ABOUT 8 OUT OF 10 SHE WILL FIND OUT MORE LATER, HOW MUCH LATER I DON'T KNOW. THE DOC IS STILL CHECKING
    LOVE MOM

    OH my! I am so sorry Equibling! Prayers are going up for your family now.

    Lord give this family peace and good news. Help guide the Dr's so they find the correct issue and treatment to get Alyssa back on her feet again and back to normal.

    Amen

    Thank you. I just feel so helpless, nervous and sick to my stomach right now...sighs. And I'm stuck here at work, trying not to lose it. I think I'm going to e-mail my boss and see if I can get outta here early....I need to go home and cry.
