Heartbreaking story I feel compelled to share

My heart is in pieces after reading this blog, which I was directed to from another blog I follow. Everything this young family has been through recently almost mirrored my situation just a couple of years ago. A young woman diagnosed with Stage IIB Breast Cancer while newly pregnant and a baby girl born prematurely, yet healthy. All seemed well until Sara (the mom) began having unexplained headaches soon after bringing her baby home and ended up in the hospital with seizures. Doctors couldn't diagnose the problem and therefore had yet to start treatment on her. Her situation worsened in the matter of days and she went to heaven today after being declared brain dead. Please pray for this family. It doesn't take much these days for me to realize how fortunate I am to be alive. I hope everyone who reads this appreciates life more than you ever have.

God Bless the Sullivans.

I saw that link on Kelly's Korner this morning and immediately thought of you! Such a heartbreaking story, and I'm so glad your health is good right now.
