Final Update

Hello friends,

                    My brother lost his battle and died peacefully in his sleep on Thursday. I will miss him terribly, but I am glad his suffering is over. He fought this battle on  his own terms, with courage and with his mind and sense of humor intact. I wont go in to a lot of details, but I want to thank everyone for going through this with me and for offering me so much love and support. I'll be back soon. Much love, Karen

An Update and Thank You

Hello friends,

              I just want to let you all know whats going on with my brother. As you know l2 days ago the Dr. told our family that my brother had days to live. Well my brother had other plans. We all gathered around him and sat vigil prayed and waited. Suddenly he started to improve! He went from a weak and semi conscience state to alert talking and getting himself in and out of bed and is even managing to eat a few bites and drink water. He has had five good days in a row. He is not cured and is still gravely ill but he is still here. We are taking things one day at a time and we are grateful to still have him. His pain is being managed fairly well  and that too is an improvement. We can only attribute this turn around to the power of prayer and the will of the human spirit. I want to thank  all of you for  your prayers and words of comfort and kindness. You have all helped to make this time more bearable. If all continues to go well I'll be back later this week with a project. Thanks again to everyone for being here for me. Love to you all.

Sad News

Hello friends,
This is a post that I've been putting off writing. I will be away for a while. My brother is in the final stages of cancer. He is not expected to live for more than a few days. I will be spending as much time with him and my parents as possible, for as long as they need me.  Please keep my family in your prayers. I will be back when it is possible.
