    its been along night so forgive me if i mis-spell a few words.

    most of the ohio guys know that i have been taking care of my grandmother (who raised me) the last couple of months.over the last few years we have battled 5 rounds of colen cancer. well they found a few spots are her liver that they said were "shawdows" and were nothing to worry about. come to find out those "shawdows" were cancer and now it has spread to her colon,liver,kidneys and lungs. they gave her only a few months to live but with kemo it may be alittle longer. so she chose to go with the kemo

    well after a month of kemo her white bloodcells have droped so low that they think she has an infection that has spread from her kidneys to her blood. "ceptic shock" is what they think it is, so all of last night she spent fighting for her life. her blood pressure has dropped way to low and she is on two meds trying to keep them stable and she is not able to breath out the carbon dioxide in her lungs.

    right now she is still fighting to stay alive,we dont know if she will make it another night. they say if she hangs on she might be able to come out of it. i know with all that cancer in her body that even if she does come out off this ceptic shock that she may not have to long left.

    but what i'm asking for is that if she has to go right now if you all will pray she goes easy and not have a hard time. if its not to much trouble can you put catfish brett's grandma in your prayers tonight

    i know i prob didn't explain all this right, sorry

    thanks -catfish brett

    Brett you explained it just fine.Will say Prayers for your Grandma and for you .I know it has to be hard on you also with her raising you and all. Just stay strong and all you can do is put it in God's hands. Doctors can do what ever but the good Lord has the most power. God Bless and keep us updated if possible.

    thanks everyone for all your prayers,

    my grandmother is doing alot better,they have taken her off all of her heart meds so her heart is doing all the work by it's self and she is staying stable.her lungs however are still having a hard time getting the carbon dioxide out,so she still has to wear that mask a few times aday.

    her kidneys are working alittle bit and the doctors are shocked they didn't think they would come back,so thats a good sign.her blood suger is 500 but thats because of some meds.she is up and has been talking,but she is out of it most times not knowing what she saying and making things up. this may be from the meds they have her on some pretty strong nerv pills to calm her down (they also knock her out so she's alseep most of the time),that mask really scares her (they said it feels like your choaking to death)

    the doctors are gonna wait a few days to see how much better she gets befor they see if the cancer has spread to her brain. we are hoping its the meds making her talk crazy,so please keep praying for that

    she is still in the critical care unit and they are gonna keep her there for a few more days to make sure everything is gonna stay positive.

    thanks again for all your prayers. i will keep you updated

    also she is only a few days away from her 65th birthday
