    We just got a call from my SIL. My husbands grammy has had a recurrance of breast cancer. She is 94 and has heart problems. It is looking as though the only treatment they can do for her is hormone therapy to slow things down. We know what this means but at her age we were expecting some type of end but its still a shock right now.

    We are having to do a mad scramble to get another visit in. We live a thousand miles away so visits are a bit complicated. Just pray that we can get everything together and make it up there for a visit while things are still good and she can enjoy the time with us.

    I'm praying for you, I know what you are going through. I care my my husbands Grammy, and between Bad Heart, Being blind, Being unable to walk and being 94 years old, we just don't know how many good days are left. [​IMG]

    Praying for your safe travels for you to get to spend some time with her. Praying the hormones work and slows thing down and she stays pain free. [​IMG]

    Thanks all. This just took us by surprise. A few weeks ago everyone was going on and on at how active and healthy she is and then all of a sudden all the little things no one tells us are coming out. She has been going for heart issues a lot lately. She lots tons of weight. Once super independent she just felt too tired to do stuff. She is tired enough that her stubborn irish pride is allowing a housekeeper into her home. ( that is huge and put us both in tears, if you knew her you would be shocked too. it just shows how bad things have gotten)

    We were just there last year before I had the baby. I am working on trip plans now. The doctor does not think this is going to be anything that happens fast. He seems to be of the opinion that her heart will go before cancer can take her. I pray that is so. She is not my grammy but I do love her so. I always say my husband loaned her to me because I never had a gram of my own. She is just the loveliest lady I have ever met. Anywho I just canceled our 2 day honeymoon we have been putting off for 11 year and put that money toward driving up to Massachusetts. Thank God there is family willing to put up all 6 of us. Picture 4 adults and 8 children in one house. They must really love us. I think I have finances figured. Now its just dealing with our vehicle. My van is a sore point anyway but now its a large issue. I am not sure how we will all get up there in it. It just holds us, not luggage. New tires, alignment and probably a tune up are in order.

    I appreciate all prayers. We are more than a little freaked and upset right now.
