My prayers go out to Carolyn and her family. I hope she will decide to go with chemo-if it will make any difference at all.

Prayer going up for Carolyn and Jamus and their family. I imagine they are all in shock at this very unwelcome news.

I don't konw which kind of leukemia Carolyne has or at what stage but I do wish that she would try the chemo, who knows, it is a chance at remission. Carolyn, and Jamus, I am so sorry you have this to deal with, I will pray that you can make the decisions you need to and that you can have more time together than you think.

Happy face

Carolyn, I've thought about you all day. I pray God will direct you to make the right decision. I know it's not an easy one to make & only you & Jamus can make the one that's right for you. Keeping you & the family in my prayers.
Hugs
Minny

Carolyn hoping that today went okay for you and you were able to tolerate the chemo treament well...We are all praying for a miracle.

Jamus if you are reading this I was so saddened to hear of the passing of your father on top of all you have going on....please know you are both in my thoughts along with your mom and your girls and Carolyn. Prayers for strength for all of you


Hugs debbie

I have emailed all of you I have emails for.

Jamus' dad passed away yesterday.

Carolyn DID take a chemo treatment today, the first of 6, every other day very intensive treatments.
It made her horribly sick, delirious, bouncing off the walls and uttering nonsense........
Jamus was not even sure she knew he was there.

She has four weeks to live w/o chemo.
WITH the chemo they will recheck her white cell count next week (after three chemo treatments) and if not significantly less will be sent home with hospice. The chemo is a last straw effort. Normal count should be between 4 and 10,000 and hers was 145,000.

Jamus shaved his head yesterday.

PLEASE send a card this week if you can.

hugs, train
