What's happening?

The one week stay over at my parent's house ended yesterday. The kids are back home.
I think they missed their grandparents, they missed climbing up & down those stairs & also at the pool... :)

They will have to wait till another school holiday for a stayover.

Not been really blogging for a week seems like I have been missing a lot of stuff. Can you guys update me what is happening around the blogosphere?

I went to visit my brother on Friday & glad to see that he was more jovial & chatting away with all of us. Doctor numbed 3 of his 5 nerve near the spine so that he cannot feel the pain caused by the bone cancer. He is struggling every min for a living chance & is prepared to do anything for it. He will be discharged from hospital these few days if he can cope with the lesser pain, but it will not be the last visit cos he need to return for chemotherapy. Leg amputation, lung surgery & the countless theraphy, treatments, medicine, x-ray, scanning.... all within a year. How can a human body withstand so much treatments? Why must he be the chosen one? Such a kind, loving husband, father, brother & son !! Deep down.... all of us know what is the worst scenario....

Janice~Big hugs!

You know I lost my youngest son to fatal illness 11 and a half years ago? Because of this, I may have a slightly different view than you. I am so sorry your brother has bone cancer which has invaded his spinal nerves. I am glad they could help. You say "the worst case scenario" but maybe by that time you might be able to see he will be out of pain, when he gets heaven. It is very hard to watch soemone you love suffer. I'm sure the best thing would be your brother healthy and well!

I just know by the time Brennie died, I was glad to know he was in a place w/o pain and illness.

I'm praying for you and your brother and all your family.

Hi Janice, cheer up. Look on the brighter side of things. Based on what you say

"I went to visit my brother on Friday & glad to see that he was more jovial & chatting away with all of us"

See the most important thing that he is happy and overjoyed to see his loved ones surrounding him, you and our family showing him all the love and support. You can see it in his eyes.

As for the Nafateam, we will continue to keep your brother in our prayers and thoughts..

~God loves ones who has a pure heart and always shall keep him safe~

Regards,
THE NAFASG TEAM

Hi Jan, I am sad that this happened to your brother but happy that your brother is so strong and jovial.

It makes us want to treasure every moment of our life and those who are with us, our family and friends. Express love to our parents, have that lunch finally with friends whom we almost lost touch...

Dear Janice I had no idea your brother has bone cancer, I must have missed that post somehow.I know life can be so overwhelmingly difficult to bear at times, Janice and I really know that sometimes it seems that those who are so good and loving and kind must struggle so badly. I cannot answer the question as to why your dear brother has been 'chosen' to go through all of these harsh difficulties.I do know that while there is life and love, there is always hope.I shall pray much harder for your brother and your family, I am always thinking of you.As for whats happening around the blogosphere...mainly everyones doing Marzies tag thingy!Hey...keep up your spirts, Janice and know that I am sending you and your brother and family the greatest of big *HUGS* and prayers right now! :) and I'm glad to hear that he is feeling better

Everyone has been praying for ur brother dear. We feel so bad that this had to happen to someone we know, so we hope that he will recover soon. As long as he can survive this ordeal, that's all that really matters. And you and your family will be there tohelp him get through everything that he needs to endure to make it through. Don't question what has happened but be thankful that your brother is still around to share his love and himself with you, your family and his family :):):)

Janice, it is surely difficult for a person to go thru so much at one time. But with strong faith and determination, I am sure he will (with the support from all the family members and friends)...

Bobby said...

Janice! I am so glad to see you back:) All you can do is give your brother all your love. I hope he survives and beats it. I lost my father to cancer and I gave him all the love I had in my soul. You just keep loving him and we all hope for a good outcome. Life doesn't work the way we want it to sometimes but giving love is the one thing we can do. I am pulling for your brother and will be here for you:)

Hi Janice,
It's a good to know that your brother is feeling better now.

Indeed, your brother is going through difficult time and that's really tough and painful to every one of your family members and even to your friends who concern.

Anyway, don't overly worry! There is no point of questioning why such had happened but be thankful always and look at the bright side. Every happening do have purposes. Sometimes our infinite mind just couldn't comprehend or willing to accept even though answers are given. The important thing is the response and the best response is LOVE!

Take care & be strong Janice!
God bless.
