My dear mother-in-law has had cancer (Ovarian) for the last 18months and now it has spread (to her lungs) and she is in hospital (where doctors want to do more tests - making her more distressed). Fortunately she isn't in any great pain at this stage, however the drugs she is being given are making her feel even worse.
My husband and I don't live near by, but my husband is planning to fly and stay with her as long as needed (he will be able to work a few days a week when he is there). She is a Christian woman which is such as relief as she knows she is going to heaven which gives her such joy, however she still feels scared about what is happening probably becuase she is no longer in any control over her life .
Please pray that the next few months are as comfortable as possible and that she can put her faith completely in Gods hands. And her doctors do the right things eg don't forget to give her her medication which caused her even more distress until my husband had a long chat with the nurse.
