Request for healing

This is cross posted to my Shamanism community so some of you may get this twice.

My aunt Fran Artman is in the hospital in Carthage, IL, my hometown. She was recently diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. This morning, a couple of my other aunts while visiting failed to be able to wake her and called for an ambulance. Aunt Fran and her husband John live 1 block from the hospital so it's not a far trip but still...

Upon doing some tests, they found her white blood cell count was below zero. In a healthy person it is in the thousands I believe. They debated on life flighting her to Peoria but in the end decided it was too risky with her non existent immune system. So she is in an isolation ward being pumped full of fluids and getting all manner of tests done.

Late in February, she had visited Cancer Centers of America in Zion, IL and they decided that the best course of treatment was a drug regimen and chemotherapy at home which I'm sure is partially to blame for her immune system being the way it is.

Please send prayers or healing energy or if it her time to go, energy for a smooth transition.

Thanks,

Wander

oh noes...that's not really the best hospital for people w/ cancer...my grandpa went there for his...and they pretty much fucked him over in the worst way b/c he's dead now. i'll send extra good thoughts and maybe they'll move her to Peoria.

I doubt they will. She's too fragile to move now. I think she's much farther along than anyone realized. I don't know if she realizes what is going on but if she does, she's probably comforted by the fact that she's close to home. Seriously, you could stand at the back corner of the hospital and throw a rock and hit their house.

Thanks for the good thoughts!
