Death, Dying, & Surgery

A good [internet] friend of mine made a post on her LiveJournal today. Her boyfriend of 2 years passed away unexpectedly late Tuesday night. They think it was either a massive heart attack or a pulmonary embolism. They won't have the autopsy results for a little while longer.

She's absolutely devastated. This man was her life. In all of the 7 years I've known her, I've never seen her happier. She met her BF soon after her divorce from her (now) exhusband and have been living together for 1.5 years. They don't have kids together, but he had a 5 year old that he had physical custody of.

Honestly, I'm kind of worried about her. I know lots of you are the praying type, so when you're saying your prayers tonight, please throw in one for her.

Another internet friend of mine, whom I've never met in person, is currently watching her mom die from lung cancer. Her mom was only just diagnosed last year, but it was already Stage IV. None of her treatments have worked. Hospice is already called in. There's only days left.

Also, a couple weeks ago, my grandmother had a routine scan of her lungs and was found to have 2 new "spots" on her lungs. She had a cancerous spot removed from her lung 15 years ago and has been clean since. Thankfully these 2 spots should be able to be removed cleanly as well, with minimal after care (a pill should do the trick). Her surgery is on Monday. My grandmother means the world to me. I've been not the greatest grandkid, unfortunately, but I'm still her favorite. LOL.

In short, please keep Joyce, Debby (and their families!), and my Grandma Mercy in your prayers tonight. I'd greatly appreciate it.
