Mother-in-law has cancer
« on: February 28, 2012, 11:01:12 PM »
My wife told me that her mom has cancer.  We don't know too much at this time like what type, how far along it is, whether it is treatable/manageable/curable, etc.  This stems from an episode she had late last week where she had to be rushed to the hospital.  I'm glad it was caught.

Also, pray for my wife who is feeling very sad and also angry because of all of this.  Thanks.

Lord have mercy on them both.

Lord have mercy.

Sometimes illnesses like this can be a blessing.

My prayers for your Mother-in-law, your wife, and all your relatives.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Thanks, everyone.

Just found out today that she has stage 2 cervical cancer which is one of those cancers with a pretty high mortality rate, though it's only diagnosed in 13-14,000 women every year.  The doctors seem upbeat and so does my mother-in-law as does my wife.  We'll know more about chances and prognosis following another exam on Friday.  Assuming approval for treatment is given, she'll be doing 5 weeks straight of radiation along with one dose of chemotherapy each week. We're still hoping for the best. Your continued prayers will be appreciated greatly.

Lord, have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.
