MelanieLR Posted June 30, 2005 Share Posted June 30, 2005 Hi All, I know I listed on my 5's yesterday that it looks like all my Grandmother had was acid reflux. I just found out it's cancer. They are not sure yet of the origin but they know that there is a tumor the size of a fist on her pancreas. I really wish it weren't there. That can be an intensly painful place for it. I can tell you one thing - I was absolutely certain when it hit my pancreas. they had to double my pain meds & it still doesn't quite cut it. We had a great talk today though. We have something in common that gave us a special bond to go through this together. She said that she was glad that she wouldn't have to be away from me for very long & I was thinking the exact same thing. At 90 years old, she doesn't want to go through treatment & I sure don't blame her. She said she's had a great life but that it's time to go home now & see the multitudes of people who are waiting for her & to meet her Maker. It's kind of sad that she was asking family members what of her things they wanted. Everyone was coming up with all the expensive stuff (I just don't get that) & when she got to me, I said I wanted to get the old family quilt so I can get it caught up to date to pass on to my neice. She made my Aunt go home & bring it to me right away so I can get it done before I'm too sick to work on it. This quilt has pieces from things like christening gowns, wedding dresses & suits, with names & dates embroidered on the cloth. There are many new pieces that need to be added & I'm thrilled that I get to do it. I've got to get my neice over to show her how to continue the project. The first piece of cloth used on it was my Grandmother's christening gown 90 years ago. It's embroidered with "Baby Helen / 9-3-15". Anyway - please pray for peace for her & a painless journey. Hugs & prayers, Melanie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
