Prayers needed

Ladies - If you can send all your prayers to a family friend of mine I would greatly appreciate it. She is a best friend of my parents and has been like a second Mom to me since I was born. She is dying of lung cancer. She has been battling against Stage 3 lung cancer for the last 6 months, to a year and this last week she has taken a turn for the worse. They aren't expecting that she will make it past Friday. She is a frail woman (barely 100lbs if even, she might be only 80lbs) and so because of that they have a DNR. If they tried to revive her they would break her ribs.

My mom told me this news yesterday and I think I was in shock or denial and it didn't really hit me how bad it was until her son called me. I haven't been close to either of her sons in a long time. We used to hang out all the time because our parents did all the time when we were younger. but as we grew up and I moved off to college the boys did their own thing. I saw her a few weeks ago and while she was frail she looked good She said she felt great, but apparently this last week it went downhill. I was fighting with DH last night and I thin it's because of my feelings about my parents friend. She is still young only in her early 60's. and it's just so sad. It makes me thankful that my parents stopped smoking and my aunt too. I broke down with DH in bed last night and just cried....

I don't know what to say to her kids to help them through this. I still have my mom. My mom ended up calling her one son that I talked to last night because she lost her mom around the same age. Anyway - If you can send prayers and positive thoughts as she passes on to heaven
