Hey Y'all,

This most recent update has left my heart in pieces. Please just pray as God leads you.

First, yesterday the fluid building up from the stomach cancer caused one of Alisha's lungs to collapse. She was in surgery as of 9:30 this morning to again remove the excess fluid, and get her lung working again (I think)

This next part, I barely know how to put into words.

The doctors have told Alisha that this cancer is terminal. They believe that administering chemotherapy will only end her life sooner. They've left the decision up to her. I've been in tears since I heard. I dreamed about it all last night. I can't believe this is actually happening.

To me, it feels like this is all taking place so fast. As of a few months ago, it was ovarian cancer, they were going to take her ovaries out, she would recover, and go on living her life. Cancer is such a merciless disease. I'm heart-broken, as I'm sure you are, for so many reasons. She is SO young. She just had a baby, and her Mama's heart wants to see her grow up. We keep wishing and hoping and praying for a second chance, but it seems as though God may not grant it...but I know, should He choose, that God can do all things. I'm ready at a moment's notice to turn my lamentations into rejoicing, should He choose to do something miraculous here.

Please keep the family in your prayers. Alisha is the only child of Mitch and Janet. Thank you all for seeking God on this issue, for your thoughts and prayers, for carrying this burden with our family.

Oh my...I am just staring at the computer in sadness and disbelief. It just doesn't make any sense at all. I'm so heartbroken for you, for Alisha, for her family, for John, for her children! I can't even begin to wrap my mind around this. I'm just so sad, for lack of better words.

I will continue to pray for God's ultimate healing. As well as peace for everyone. This is an unimaginable situation. Thank you Lacy for continuing to update us.

Love you girl.

Oh no...I am broken. My heart hurts so bad for all of you right now. Please know that we are praying. I wish I could say something meaningful or insightful, but I can't see around the pain right now. So instead, I will pray...
