I think I have told you that Katie's MIL Jan who is not that old...had been diagnosed with incurable and severe lung cancer this past August. She has done pretty well and Katie and family (and us too) had a nice Thanksgiving in Kansas with her. But sadly things are progressing and last night she was moved from home to a hospice and Katies husband is on the way up and she and the kids will follow in a day or so. I think it is always hard to lose a loved one but when you couple it with the holidays it makes it even harder. So keep their family and Jan in your prayers please.
I should probably add a note to this post that sadly Jan passed away peacefully the evening of Dec 29. As people often times post...CANCER SUCKS and while her battle was not pleasant at least it wasn't very long.
