Update on L.

Remember L.? I mentioned her a while back, my young friend who has cancer (see the label/post RAK). Well, I hate to report she's getting worse.

She rushed to the ER the night before last because she was getting violently sick and bringing up blood (sorry, for those of the squeamish). She tore the lining of her esophagus and she possibly has the start of organ failure (kidneys, liver, etc); more tests being done today. The doctors that night told her she shouldn't bother anymore treatments or trials and to prepare for end of life (to which she told them where to go; she's a strong one, that). She isn't succumbing to that thought yet, though, because she's waiting to hear if the last round of chemo helped at all.

This makes me really sad. I don't want my friend to die. I feel helpless not being able to help her, or even spend time with her (being so far away). I'm trying to think of what I can do for her or maybe there's something I can send her, but I got nuthin'.

So I was wondering if you'd join me in giving a shout out to her. We're thinking of you, L.! Sending positive, healing thoughts your way. May you find strength and comfort knowing you're thought of and loved.
