I just wanted to give you a quick update on my sister-in-law Thais.
As I wrote here, last summer, Thais, a breast cancer survivor of nearly nine years, now has stage four, aggressive bone cancer.
She has been hospitalized for bone breaks and fractures. She has lost several inches off her stature due to the compressing of her bone, which I am told are the consistency of rice crispies.
Through it all, her attitude and faith in God is amazing.
This weekend, she was taken by ambulance and hospitalized. The radiation that was recently done to two breaks in her pelvis has “cooked” her intestines, leaving her unable to digest food. I would appreciate your prayers for her.
Saturday, our daughter drove 13 hours from her home in North Carolina, along with my friend Lysa’s daughter, to come see Thais. It really perked her spirits. They head back today.
This is a very difficult time for our family. I just want to shut down life drive the hour and a half to her and just sit at her side.
But she wants me to keep going; to keep telling people to love God and others with all of their hearts, because things don’t matter. People do.
So, please, make that call today.
Say I love you.
Or I miss you.
Or you mean the world to me.
Or I am sorry.
What will you do with the time that’s left?
I appreciate all of the prayer and well wishes. I’ll keep you posted on her progress.
