Mammy has Cancer.

I don't typically like to get on my digital journals and such and drop a whole bunch of emotional drama type stuff, but I'm going to make an exception for the sake of my Grandmother this time. I try not to dump much on other people, these days.

My Grandmother on my mother's side, or as I call her, "Mammy," is really sick right now. To be more specific, Mammy has stage 4 cancer, which started in her lungs and spread to her lymph nodes and even her spine some I think. It all kind of happened very quickly. That is to say, it seemed quick to us, anyway. A surprisingly healthy woman for her age, she deteriorated into a bed-ridden, sickly, suffering old woman in only a few short months.

She's been through a single chemo-therapy session and, as I just found out two days ago, the main tumor in her lung had actually shrunken some, apparently as a result of the chemo. Even that small sign of hope is a wonderful blessing and I feel it's an answer to the prayers we've all been making for her sake. But speaking of prayer, that's why I wanted to make a post about this.

I love my Mammy dearly and it's incredibly depressing to say the least. I would really appreciate it if anyone who reads this could say some prayers for her. Our family would greatly appreciate it. I should've put this request out earlier.

Thanks, any and everyone.
