Please pray for Jill & Greg

This is a relative of one of my "online friends". Here is the initial request for prayer back in January:

I am asking for prayers, positive thoughts, good vibes and cards of encourgement, hope and comfort.

My Sister In Laws SIL was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer while she was pregnant. Following a C-Section in late September where she delivered a beautiful (and thankfully, healthy) baby girl (her second) she had surgery to remove her kidney. Everything seemed to be fine but one week ago she was back in the doctor's office not feeling well ... days later she was in surgery where they opened her abdomen again- this time vertically and horizontally. They discovered and removed 6 tumors within her abdomen and one tumor on her ovary ... all cancerous. It was also discovered that the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes. The most devastating news is this particular kind of cancer is very aggressive and fast growing and does NOT respond to traditional chemo and radiation.

Jill and Greg are a young couple with two baby girls ... 2 1/2 and 3 months old. They are both sweet and loving people ... I am personally shattered at this news. It seems incredibly unfair. Jill has such grace about her ... she continues to hold onto hope and all she asks for are prayers and positive thougths.

Please will you lift them up in prayer? If you are not the praying kind will you send out positive thoughts and positive vibes?

And, here is today's update:
Jill was rushed to the ER tonight. Her hemoglobin dropped dangerously low apparently and she became terribly weak and sick. She will be taken to another hospital tomorrow by ambulance once she is stablilzed and I don't know what's going to happen after that.

Continued prayers are appreciated....

Thanks for joining in the prayers for this family.
