There are some of my new Blog Friends that may not
know the story of LEILA, My Beloved Daughters' Bestest
FRIEND in the world.
This is a picture of them during HAPPIER TIMES.
They are posing in two of my vintage hats.
My baby girl Amy is in the blue hat and Leila is in
the vintage winter wool beige hat.
Just about a year into Amy's treatment, LEILA
found out she had uterine, ovarian cancer and it had
spread through her stomach lining and behind her liver.
She was so happy that Amy was there to help walk her
through the chemo experience...because Amy could
answer questions for her that no one else who had
not been through chemo could.
Leila had been on an experimental drug that she was going
to have to take the rest of her life until another chemo could
be discovered to destroy this deadly cancer.
She was getting very thin and said nothing tasted good.
She worked 4 days a week at Staples.
She worked 2 weeks ago Monday and the next day fell
trying to keep her little dog from running into the street.
Korbi, her husband, who is pictured below, took Leila to
see her Doctor. Her Doctor did not think things looked
right with Leila and ordered a CT SCAN and it revealed
the tumor had exploded in size.
She spent a week in the hospital, came home 1 day
and was put in ICU until yesterday...they moved her out
to the floor and the Doctor told them there is nothing
more they can do and they are trying to set up hospice...
Leila can no longer walk or stand because of severe
swelling in her legs, especially upper legs.
LADIES AND GENTS...WE CAN BE FINE TODAY
AND TOMORROW BATTLING FOR OUR LIFE.
THAT IS WHY THIS WILL ALWAYS BE A PRAYING
I know the dark days in the hospital...I know what it is
and feels like to watch your child die. I have battled for
my own life and do battle to keep my eye sight and kidneys.
People need someone, any one willing to stand in the gap
and intercede to Jesus on their behalf when they are too
weak to do so...and YOU are that person.
We all know sad, hard times and that is why we must
not forget those who are.
IT IS NOT DEPRESSING...IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO
REACH OUT AND HELP SOMEONE IN NEED.
May I introduce you to Korbi. Korbi is beside himself.
Leila is his whole world. I have never seen a man love
a woman as much as he does Leila. Korbi is very
hyper and when it comes to bad news about Leila he
will wear a hole in the floor pacing...the more he paces,
the more coffee he drinks. Leila keeps Korbi grounded.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS.
