      One of my dearest friends, Julia, has been terminally ill for the past 2.5 years. She initially was diagnosed with breast cancer and lost both breasts, but not before it spread into her spine. Pain management is all they could offer her and a period of 5 years of expected life left. She has now taken a drastic tu for the worse, and has been hospitalized since Thursday evening. They believe that she has a cranial leak, but cannot find it, her pain medications are not working, and her brain is sagging. She has had multiple MRIs and spinal taps, and some other tests will be performed today.

      I ask for God's will to be done, whether that is healing or her passing, because she is in so much pain. I am devastated to pray this way, but I know that asking for her healing in THIS situation will certainly not take it all away (even though I do wholeheartedly believe in miracles) and her road is nearing an end. Selfishly, I want to pray – just heal her so she can home because she is our family away from family. Some of you know our situation, others don't – so I will keep it short – but my husband, children, and I have moved 13 times in 10 years. This is our second longest stay anywhere since him and I first married and we have lived here for just under 2 years now. Julia is my next door neighbor – her house faces mine – and she took us under her wing completely as loneliness sits in, and desire to just be with family makes us terribly homesick. She is a grandmother to my kids, and they are incredibly close to her, and she is the closest friend that I have, more friend, but part mother to me, and her presence in our lives has been irreplaceable. I wouldn't change it for the world, but her passing will be incredibly devastating to my children, and to me… we are heartbroken at the very idea.

      So please, pray for God's will, and for my part in being strong for my girls. Moving so often for my husbands job (not military, but a problem solver for his company) has been hard enough, and they have had to mou leaving friends many times… but this time it is different. Mouing the complete loss of someone so dear, I can't comprehend how this will affect them. Pray that I can teach them how to handle the loss, and how we can all move past this while still remembering how special she was to us.

      I'm sad.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                  Heidi my heart goes out to her and to your family. From what I've read she sounds like the most loving person. I always wonder why god takes the good ones, the ones we count on, the ones we love..
                  All of you will be in my prayers. please keep us updated

                    That is exactly how I felt with my Mom. I will say a prayer for Julia and for You and your family.

                        Just wanted to give you all an update… They found the leak, and did a blood patch, but it is thought to be temporary and that it will buy her some time so that she can come home. Thank you so much for your prayers! I will let you know more as I know more?
