Shirl movedone of my posts here about my friends hubby having Leukemia. They started his chemo two nights ago. He was also on dialysis and at least his kidneys are functioning better. He has a long haul ahead of him. The children got to be with him this weekend. Her parents will be up from Florida in a week to help out, but for now this week will be rough for her and the kids and shifting them from house to house. I s/w my other friend who s/w her yesterday between her traveling back and forth to NYC with kids to go visit him. (His name is John, her name is Ellen and the kids are Little John and Amee). She said she hasnt heard anything new and poor Ellen is in a very FRAZZLED state of mind. I was upset because of not knowing how I could help so I figured out something that may help. My daughters are good friends with Amee. Little John is in my youngest grade. Myself and the girls will put together "goody bags" of juice boxes and snacks so when they leave for the city to go see daddy all Ellen has to do is grab a bag for the two of them. Less she has to worry about before the big ride. My daughters thought it was a good idea and gives them a sense of doing something positive to help their friend Amee out. We are also making tote bags for Amee and little John...packing them with crayons, markers, paper and other activitied that they can leave in the van at all times so when they go see their dad it will be in the van to take inside and color with daddy. I hope it helps her out a little. The chemo will be inteanse in a few days. He will be seriously ill from it. Ellen unsure if kids will be able to continue to visit once he losses hair and becomes even more sick. Plus his immune system will be compromised, so it may not be a good idea that he has alot of visitors. Please continue prayers for the family. Again, names are John, Ellen, little john and Amee. Im scared for them. He is young. Maybe about 40 -42 yrs old. Too young in my eyes to leave this world right now. Pray for strength courage and piritual uplifting for them. Thank you!
