Hoping against the odds

Another family member has Cancer, this time it's of the bile duct area - the doctors say it's one of the worst and rarest types in the UK with only around 1,000 people diagnosed a year.  We just battled breast cancer with mum and now this within 2 years.  Cancer you're an arrogant swine.

All I can think of are my nephew and niece who are only 14, not ready, not equipped, not yet 15...not yet.  Not Yet! It's not time.  

He's been in hospital for two weeks, everything in his body seems to be failing this week and the kicker?  He just had the diagnosis confirmed four short months ago.  Today he's had a tracheotomy after being on a ventilator for three days.  His kidney and liver aren't responding to treatment and the Doctors don't know if it's the Cancer or just a low immune system from the chemo that's causing the problems.  The doctors aren't hopeful and have mentioned that his brain function will be compromised coming off the ventilator.  They make it sound and seem so hopeless. If the odds are stacked against him, then the only way is up right?  So I'm going to hope, pray and keep my blind Faith because I'm not done yet.  I'm not done hoping and praying, not when my nephew and niece sound so hopeless and lost.  

Hope, Pray and keep the Faith. Repeat.
