My mother in law...the latest

Just a quick note:

My mother in law is in the hospital, and right now we're just trying to hold it together.

Her breast cancer came back with a vengence, and, unfortunately, has somehow invaded her liver which is now in the process of shutting down. There are a few things that the doctors are looking into, but right now there isn't much hope of her turning around this time. My husband & I took the kids to see her in the hospital, and she was coherent enough to know who they were and she was very happy to see them. The visit was very short as my mother in law is sleeping a lot. My father in law has already had a priest come in to give her last rites (as it was formerly known as the sacrament of the anointing of the sick) & we're all pretty much waiting right now. There is a small chance that it is a blood clot that is causing the liver failure, but the fear is if that is the case and they fix that the liver may already be gone.

Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers. Telling the kids about everything was tough. Especially, when one of them isn't old enough to understand what's going on with everyone.
