My mother in law is a tremendous force for God and an inspiration and encouragement for literally hundreds of people; she's truly extraordinary, and gives of herself and her time freely. She has a leukemia that is rare and invariably fatal, and very aggressive. Treatment beat it back once, but within 2 years, it was back, and moved fairly quickly. This time, it didn't respond as well to treatment; even after a full course of everything they can throw at it, cancerous lymph nodes remained, and have already increased in size greatly, interfering with bodily functions. They are inoperable, so it looks like round three of chemo, which will be very destructive to the bone marrow transplant.
I pray God continues to be glorified through her faith and example, but I would love to see Him glorified through her complete healing!! This is "incurable", so a complete healing would be truly miraculous. The people who know and love her would love to have her with us for many more years. Please pray for strength and trust in the Lord for all involved, especially her husband and grandchildren. This is very difficult.
