Great news! Mary Jo's sister, Carol, had her operation this morning. There was no cancer present. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Please keep her nephew Billy in your prayers.
My wife Mary Jo's nephew, Billy, who had leukemia and now has lymphoma, has taken a turn for the worse. The chemo that he was taking was not working. So they stopped it. Now his calcium levels are dangerously high. Death is near. Billy is hoping to live until Saint Patrick's Feast Day on the 17th. Patrick is Billy's middle name and his patron saint.
On top of that, Mary Jo's sister, Carol, was having abdominal pain. She thought that it was something minor. But, it looks like it could be ovarian cancer. They've called in an oncologist-surgeon. They are both here at Baptist East in Louisville. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and prayers, Gerry
