Well, Brad's Granny has cancer. She has had it for a couple of years now, but has been doing okay. We thought she had a few good years left.
Doris Venable - March 2011
Well, Monday she went to the emergency room because she was having tremendous back pain. The doctor said normally that would be something to do with something or other (ruptured disc? i don't know.), but given her history with cancer, they would do an x-ray.
Well. I think you know where this is going. The cancer is now in her bones.
In fact, it has reached her spine.
There is nothing they can do, except send her home with medicine to keep her comfortable.
So that is what they did.
Granny is a wonderful person. We LOVE her. I love her. Brad & his sister (& all the cousins) are very close to her. Brad took off the rest of the week & has been to his granny's the last couple of days just to spend time with her. Of course, she loves that! We are both going tomorrow for a visit.
She is not in pain or anything & it may be several months before she goes to be with Jesus. Or it could be weeks. All I know is that she is at peace with this & ready to meet Him. She is okay with it. Her faith is strong.
But the thought of losing granny makes me so sad! And it makes my heart ache for my husband & his family - immediate & extended. They all have been close to her for their whole lives!
So please pray for her & for us if you think of it!
