As many of you have seen, I've not written on my blog for a while.
There is a reason behind this lack of writing.
We found out back in May that
my mother-in-law has been diagnosed with cancer.
The weirdest thing is that she has it on her tongue.
She has never been a smoker!
The cancer has gotten to her left lymph node of her neck.

She had to have several things done to her to prepare
her for her radiation treatments.
Because of the bad condition her teeth,
they all had to be removed
Their condition was not good and the
oncologist told us that when she begins her
radiation treatments, her teeth will fall out
and infection might set in because the
radiation would not allow the healing.
Secondly, they added a feeding tube.

My husband was in Chicago for a week
to help take care of her.
He has a younger brother who lives there also.
I've been going up every other week to take care of her.

Needless to say, these trips do not leave 
much time to do any hobbies or interests.
Please keep us in your prayers as we
are on this journey.
It's not a journey that any of us wanted,
but that's the way it is.
We trust in our Lord.

  1. Irene, my heart goes out to you. We have been through cancer with several family members too. Your strength will come from God and He will use you. You will have no regrets I can be sure of that! To give up your hobbies, and interests....will be for a short moment. Please call on us for help, because once you go through these trials, you will find you have so much compassion for others walking through them too. God is going to use you big time! Hugs and prayers!
