Dh's dad had thyroid cancer 3 times and now Dh's sister who has 3 kids under age 4 and her youngest is 2 weeks younger than my 5 1/2 month old has a mass in her throat. She had one last year that they removed surgically. We don't know if they ever biopsied, but here we are one year later and it has grown back and is now 3 inches big. We are all very worried. This would just be one more thing for everyone to handle. MIL is taking care of her Alzheimer's mother, she was an only child, and FIL has early Alzheimer's to dementia. She doesn't have the money to have them taken care of and she is doing it all. Dh is still in school and we can't help much, but we try. She also on occasion takes care of Dh's other grandparents in their 90's. Monday they are running tests and we are all doing a family wide prayer for her. I don't know what we would do if the news is bad. The only other ones that help have been my SIL and BIL and I worry that all of this stress would be too much for my MIL and something would happen to her and seriously the entire house of cards would come crashing on Dh's and my shoulders!! And if she left those little kids, I don't know what we would do! This is just too much. I have already "lost" my parents, I have no one left on my side and the other side is hanging on by such a thin thread. Anyway, prayers are needed please. I feel like I can't take one more thing and sadly that is what this entire family feels like!
