Prayers for Mike

Mike, my brother-in-law, is in surgery as I type this. The doctors are saying that he has colon cancer. This surgery is to see whether the cancer is contained in the colon or if it has spread to other organs/lymph nodes. We should know in about an hour.

Mike is 47 years young. This cancer isn’t supposed to hit until after 50.

Once again, I find myself asking, “How much can one family endure?” We have truly been through hell and now, it’s starting all over again. Franca, my sister-in-law, is absolutely beside herself with worry, as is my mother-in-law. I can’t stop thinking about them. My nephews are only 14 and 16. They shouldn’t be dealing with cancer so young.

And so, the waiting game continues and the fear of reliving all I went through with my Dad again takes over. My heart breaks for Franca, for Mike and for Anthony and Matthew.

Why can’t our family be spared a little bit? We JUST had Threepeat…we were JUST starting to let our guard down a little, thinking that the black cloud had passed over…and here we are at the beginning of another storm.

God help us. Pin It
