My Sister-in-law has had several bouts with cancer including the loss of one kidney and both adrenal glands, plus removal of a tumor on her brain. All the malignant tumors were glomus tumors meaning fatty tumors. Malignant fatty/glomus tumors are rare but the situation now is a glomus sarcoma attacking the heart and lungs. This one is so rare that doctors tell us she is the only known case in the world. Treatment is a delaying tactic only and cure is not possible. Doctors from all over the U. S. and the world have been involved with treatment recommendations. As of today we were advised that hospice care is the only alternative, I.E. making her as comfortable as possible. She has been given days to possibly a few short weeks. My Bride is devastated but putting on a strong face for her Sister. I love my sister-in-law dearly and feel like I have been kicked in the teeth. I know some of you have been through things like this and know how hard it is. I hurt badly seeing my Bride in pain but can only offer the proverbial shoulder. My bride's Father passed away with cancer when she was only three weeks old, her Mother died just 2 years ago last March and now this her only sibling about to lose her life. I would appreciate any good thoughts, prayers or what ever you may offer as we suffer along through this mess. I may be on even more rarely than recently as we move along but Seitaer will know something or I may text Zaela and have her post something.

Thank you all!!

My family and I will be keeping you and yours in our prayers. :(

Praying that you'll be able to get through these trying times with as little heart-break as possible.

You're in my thoughts.

So sorry, Pops! You have my thoughts and good wishes, of course. How devastating.

11-04-2011, 02:28 PM
you have my best thoughts and wishes, Pops.

I wish there was something real we could do to help, but scattered all over the world as we are, all we can do is hurt for you and your family. It's so hard to feel so helpless when someone you care about is going to die and there's nothing at all you can do to fix it.

Sending you our thoughts and hugs is the best we can offer, Pops. Pass them on to your bride, as well - she needs them, too.

Well, my Bride's Sissy is still hanging on. No shrinkage in the tumors. Pneumonia plus other problems and while she is a rather large woman, the loss of weight, approximately 50 lbs, isn't helping. She is getting weaker and weaker and the morphine dose for pain stronger and stronger. Please continue to be with us because you all know we surely need all the support we can get.

Love to all of you!!!

Lots of strength for you and yours, pops. I know more about these situations than I wish I did and feel for you and your family.
