>Bad News

>My wife’s mother called her yesterday at midnight to ask what she should do regarding her health status. She was at a business convention in Salt Lake City. She has diabetes, but she controls it with diet. Her blood sugar (usually in the low 100’s), was around 300, and she had a temp of 104. I said that she should go to the emergency room right away. Well, she didn’t go until noon on the 20th, and I guess they did a bunch of tests and found out that she has pneumonia….and that’s not the bad news. She also has acute leukemia.

I haven’t gotten any more details than that, and so my research up to this point has been kind of generalized, but it doesn’t look good, from what I can tell. It looks like the remission rate is over 50% IF (and this is a big if) you are under 35 years old. She is 63. So I don’t know what her prognosis would be. Right now we are trying to deal with figuring out a way to get her from Utah back to Indiana, so she can be in a hospital here.

Those of you who are Christian believers, please pray for her and the rest of the family. Her name is Mary Smith. Thanks in advance!
