Re: [MOL] MY SISTER CAROLE



Dear Gill,

I am crying too, reading your post.  But you know, it sounds like there is
still hope.  If they can't tell if the radiotherapy works for 3 weeks, than
transfer to the hospice may only be temporary.  Don't give up yet!
You know, you and she have all our love and prayers!

Martha
