I have a coworker (Roxanne) who was having some back pain and the doctors thought that it might be one of the disks in her neck and that it would probably have to be fused together to stop the pain. So, she had taken a bunch of time off to have this taken care of. Mom called me on tuesday and told me that she has terminal cancer in her lungs and back. She is a heavy smoker so the cancer in her lungs doesn't suprise me too much. She is ceraintly in a hospital (I am not sure which one) and is in a lot of pain. Because of this they are keeping her heavily drugged. This is one thing that she never wanted to happen to her. She always hated anything medical. The tumors are pushing on her spinal cord so she is paralyzed from the chest area down. Please pray for her. I don't know what her relationship is with God. I just pray that she is ready for this. She also always watches her grandson, so also pray for him, her husband and her son, as this has to be very hard on them as well. Thanks for all the prayers! I am sure that she and her family would really appreciate them.
I am a Child of God, sister, daughter, and friend. I have a great family: Mom, Dad, brother, sister and brother-in-law, and an amazing and adorable niece!. I also have a cat, Oliver, who gets himself into a lot of trouble, but who is loved a lot! I work at a nursing home in the kitchen and housekeeping, which I love.
