a miracle is what we need

Right now, we are all suffering in our family. A childhood friend of my twin brothers, a kid who I've considered as a brother, has been diagnosed with acute liver cirrhosis. Every single article I've read says that the effects are irreversible. Irreversible. It seems so final. It is final. He's only 18 years old. Too youn to die. Too young to leave this earth. My husband says that its better this way. At least he won't suffer anymore. Some part of me agrees. Another part wants to raise hell at everyone over the injustice of this. I don't know how to handle this kind of situation. I've had two deaths in the family but in some way I was removed from it since it happened in the province and I was not able to attend the funeral. Please pray for him. If it is time for him to go, then let it be swift and painless for him. If he is to survive this, then please pray that we all have the strength to support him. Most of all, please pray for him and his family.

We love you Mark. You are my other lil brother.


  1. So sorry about your friend, but don't give up hope. This week there was a story about a lady and her inoperable cancer. All the doctors she went to told her the same thing, but she didn't give up. She did her research and eventually found a group of doctors who were willing to remove almost every organ in her body to get to the cancer. Then they put all the organs back into her body and she survived the surgery. Her cancer is gone and she's suppose to leave the hospital this week. I know this isn't the situation as your friend. Just don't give up hope.

  2. How tragic to such a young person! We had our own scare of cancer with my oldest sister when she turned 40 last year. We never thought things like that ever happened to us, and all we have to do is stay strong for her.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear that. How horrible! He's so young. I'll say a prayer for him.

  4. I don't think we ever think it will happen to us or to someone in our world and so when it does, it is a huge thing.

    He's in heaven now and I hope that he's happy and in peace.
