Yesterday morning she was standing in the kitchen and
suddenly got a very sharp pain from her arm down to her groin.
The pain was horrible. She went to the doctor and they admitted her to the hospital...They have done an echogram and blood work and will do a stress test today(the one NOT on the
tread mill) She is also on a heart monitor. Luci had some heart
damage from chemo ... and is diligent about seeing
her cardiologist.
I spoke to her several times today...she sound ok..but
weak. Our dear Luci needs all your prayers and good thoughts.
I am praying that my dear friend is home soon with no further heart damage.
I will keep you updates...
Sometimes it is a slender thread, Sometimes a strong,
stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....

This is awful. I had no idea Luci was having to watch her heart. It goes without saying lots of prayers and good thoughts for her. Next time you talk to her please tell her Dh and I are sending our love and prayers. Love and Hugs Joyce

I, too, had no idea that Luci had heart damage from chemo. I am praying that all is well and that she recovers very soon. She is one of the dearest people I know and so loved by so many of us.
Cathi, I know how upset you must be. Hang in there, Sis, and know I'm sending prayers your way, too.
I love you both, Jo-Ann

Please add my good wishes and love when you speak with her. I am so sorry to hear that she has heart damage. I think many more people have it from chemo than realize it. I am so thankful that her doctor is taking care of her. If she has been seeing a heart doctor, maybe an adjustment in medicine will be all that is needed. I will be praying hard for her starting this minute. MUch love to you too. Di

Please send my prayers to Luci, also.  I don't know the circumstances but my prayers are with her.
