Sad Day

It's a sad day for us.

My mother in law, whom we all love so dearly, has been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. She is scheduled for surgery this coming Sunday and she will undergo chemotherapy after that.

Please include her in your prayers.

My dear husband is devastated... In fact, we all are but I guess he's feeling the pressure more because he is at the moment the substitute padre de familia as father in law is not physically here (he's in Africa). I just urge him to try to be strong because his strength is what is most needed by his mom, by everyone, right now.

We never expected this. Life is indeed full of surprises, both pleasant and unpleasant. We all just have to rely that He has greater purpose why these things happen. It's not always walk in the park. We are just lucky most of us are here during this difficult time. We have a fantastic support system. Also it's fortunate this has happened while she is here, in Kuwait - where she can be given the best care. A visiting French specialist is taking charge of her case, plus the whole procedure is free.
