Krystal, you are the best kind of friend she (and her mom) could have: one who listens and prays. All three of you are in my prayers.

Thank you all so much. Waking up to something positive today was a blessing. I know my friend will appreciate it.

I'm praying we get some good news soon... As far as I know Livers are resilient if she needs part of mine or my friends I know we wouldn't hesitate to offer it up... But I am open for any good news at this point.

I just can't imagine summer time without Mic.

her liver is like seriously screwed up. It took a beating during her cancer treatments, and is now much worse. She was yellow when my friend got to see her.

So far they don't have any ideas just yet, but the general idea from the doctors is not good.
My friend is 23, and it has literally been just her and her mom since her parents divorced when she was 6.

Prayers for your friend, and will keep doing this, while she goes through the upcoming stormy seas. Keep an eye on her, and familiarize yourself with the signs of depression.
I hope she never has clinical depression, but, in case she does, continue to accept her and love her, and be her friend. Prayers for her mother, too.
Poor thing.

We got some good news today. She is coming home. :D

There isn't much they can really do for her except level out her sugar and keep her relaxed. So they can send her home as long as she changes her life style. My friend is having a meeting with her 2 sisters to let them know they can't use her as a chauffer, babysitter, storage unit or bank anymore. She can't handle the stress they put on her, and I don't think Mic has the ability to tell her daughters no. So her youngest, my friend, is going to do this for her.

She also has to change her diet and all the other typical things that come from diabetic complications.

We had a girls night last night (we just found out this morning she was coming home) I brought her some dinner and we made asses of ourselves playing with tinsel and making tinfoil hats. It was alot of fun and helped her relax which she wasn't able to do all week. She had us drink a ridiculous amount of diet soda's to help her finish the cases. Since her mom can't drink them anymore, she wanted to make sure they were gone in case she came home sooner than she expected.

Thank you all for your prayers and kind words. I truly believe whoever/whatever is out there got the message.

Yikes! Missed this earlier, prayers going out for Mic and her daughter and for you, their good friend. Praying for health, and equally for patience and piece of mind and strength of resolve.The next few weeks of adjustment are going to be hard for Mic and she's going to need to lean on her daughter, who will need to lean on you. Hang in there, y'all.
