Just last week, my next to oldest sister (66) learned she has rectal cancer. She's not seen the cancer specialists yet, but will soon, I think first of next week. No idea what stages or anything at this point. Then this morning, we got a call that my youngest sister (59) was admitted to the hospital. Some kind of infection of the stomach that has messed up her intestine next to her stomach. Surgery in the morning, but they are not sure yet exactly what they will have to do, but looks like removal of some intestine, & maybe part of her stomach. I have 2 brothers, 5 sisters, around 23 nieces & nephews, & 28 or so great nieces & nephews. We have never lost anyone or even had tragic accidents, so we have been very fortunate. Had a couple close calls, but we're all still here. Hoping I can go visit her tomorrow afternoon, but I have to milk morning & night the next 2 days, so it's gonna be hard to see her tomorrow, as she may still be recovering from surgery by the time I'll have to come home to milk tomorrow afternoon.
Please keep my sisters in your thoughts & prayers.
