    If this is not the area to post , I apologize. Son 2 just called, his FIL is in the hospital.  He has been cancer free for about 11 years now, however he has developed Stage 2 cirrhosis of the liver with scarring on his liver. The doctors have ruled out  Drinking as the man does not drink ANY alcohol and hepatitis. They believe it has been caused by the chemo he had years ago. Prognosis at this time is maybe 2-5 years but we are praying that may change for the better. Because of his past cancer, he is way way down on the transplant list. Please pray for him and my DIL. Thank you all for your support.

    Praying for your loved one. We also have a family member with cryptogenic cirrhosis of the liver, not caused by alcohol or hepatitis. Diagnosed nearly 3 years ago. They have several young grandchildren in their care and struggle to get by financially and physically. This person has not told very many people about the terminal diagnosis and has other health problems as well. Does not want grandchildren scared. Please pray for healing for this person. Right now, they have what is called “compensated” cirrhosis but the tiniest thing can tip it into a “de-compensated” state and either an emergent transplant or death will occur. There is an option of a live donor as people can live with half a liver and the liver will regenerate within a few months. Maybe God will lay it on the heart of someone to donate half a liver. If that is the case, the person receiving the liver does not have to wait until they are actually in the process of dying to have a transplant. Most people do not know about this option. Please inform people as you never know to whom God may speak about this kind of thing. Bottom Line: This person needs our prayers for divine healing, however God decides to send it. Thank you.

    Renee, prayers going out for your family member. I sincerely hope that someone will be a match for them. My Grand nephew was the recipient of a bone marrow transplant (100% match, VERY rare to see that) when he was 8 mths old. Unfortunately, due to a virulent strain of pneumonia, he passed at 2. But until then he was doing so well and developing well.

    Update on DIL’s Father, not sure I posted before we left. He is doing okay but is very thin and not his usual self. He went back to work but gets wiped out easily. We’re not sure how much longer he’ll be able to work.

    Need prayers, just learned DIL1 has been diagnosed with Hemochromatosis. Her body is producing too much iron and she will have to have about a pint of blood drawn every month or so.  Thank you,  will update as we find out more.
