I need prayers desperately for my family.  My youngest cousin (we are a closeknit family) Missy is dying from Cancer.  She is my favorite uncle's only daughter.  First child and much loved.  She is only 36 years old and her only daughter is pregnant with Missy's first grandchild.  Missy has cancer that started from breast cancer and has spread to her brain and spine.  She can no longer speak but understands all of us and smiles when we talk to her.  She has not complained even one time during all of this.  She developed pneumonia this week and is in the hospital.  Unless there is a miracle, we will lose her.

Please all, prayers are needed.  I can't even go see her.  She is two states away from me.  I have cried a river of tears.  The last two years have been so hard.  My Mom, my favorite uncle and now my little cousin.  I've help for this, but with my own health so fragile, I can't sleep inspite of medication.

I just needed to tell someone.  Sometimes life is so unfair.  I don't know why it couldn't have been me instead of this young woman.

Oh Billye - my heart aches for you! Life isn't fair and it's giving you a really raw deal right now. There is a link to a site below where one can go and light a candle for a loved one and concentrate ones thoughts or prayers.

Oh Billye, I am so sorry that your heart is breaking. To have to go through so much is hard on you. I can't imagine the strength your cousin has to not complain when she is so young and with a grandchild on the way. I will lift her and her family up in prayer. Also, I will continue to pray for improved health for you my friend. Know that you are loved and thought of much. I miss you so much on the boards. You have such a great sense of humor and so much good advice. Love and hugs. Irish ;D

Billye,

My heart is with you.  I lost my dad to cancer 21 years ago.  I know the hurt.  He left this world much to early. Still miss him.  I could not be with him as much as I wanted to.  I had 4 children to care for, one was just a baby, and we lived too far away to go often.  My heart ached every single day I could not be with him.  So I know the hurt you feel, I shed the tears you shed. I understand.

You will be in my heart....
Hugs
Care

I went to bed but can't sleep.  Scottie I lit a candle and will spend many hours there.  I lit a candle to light Lissie's way to our Lord.  She is so young she may need help.  But she is so good that he will be looking for her.  What a precious young lady.  What a loss to the world and her family.

Thanks all of you for your support.  I am so weary of this pain and sadness.

Hi Billye, it's OK if your can't sleep, many of us are awake crying and praying with you and sending you comforting thoughts. Things will get better, strength from your family and friends will help you through.

Love to you and your extended family,

Billye,

I always hate to hear about young people getting any terminal illness, but it should make the rest of use put our own lives into perspective.  Maybe Sjogren's isn't that bad when I look at the big picture and what's one more week of winter!
