I have a girlfriend who is 32 years old. Before I go into detail about what she is dealing with right now, let me give you a brief discription of what she has already dealt with in life. She and her high school sweet heart had a child early in life and they married, this child is now 14 years old. They then had a daughter and she is 10 now. This relationship was rocky from the start. It ended up physical. He was very cruel to her (they did divorce). She became very, very ill and was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 26. At one time she was so ill that her blood pressure was 66/12 and everyone was sure that she would not leave that hospital alive. Well thank the good Lord she did make it!! She has since been diagnosed with crones and fibromyalgia. If you don't know about those you can look them up at www.mayoclinic.com Both of these diseases can be very painful. I feel so bad for her when she has a flare up with either one of these diseases. She married a 2nd time to a wonderful man. He was her knight! He was so very good to her, brought the kids to her while she was in the hospital (one stay was for 46 days). Well he ended up becoming a drug addict and throwing away so much of their money and being cruel to her, she left him and is now a single mom again and has yet to have the money to file for a divorce. She left the 2nd husband and had to move in with her dad in order to get her kids away from the situation of her husbands (drugs). She went through a major depression after this situation and just finally started to come around and was happy go lucky and feeling great. In feb. of this year, she rented her a nice apartment for her children and her. Everything has been looking like it is moving in the upward direction for her. Well she has been limping some since this past fall. So she has been seeing a chiropractor and just assumed that over time she would be feeling back to normal. Well to make a longer story somewhat shorter, she has been diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis (which you can also look up at www.mayoclinic.com ) and she has to have a total hip replacement. I feel so bad for her. I just wanted to share this story with my friends here so that people will be praying for her. Please do pray for her. She is a teacher, and held a sub position but she can't even do that now obviously and has no income as of right now. Please say a prayer. Thanks for taking the time to read this, I know it is long.

Yes, she is a very strong woman. I really hope that things improve for her too. I live just around the corner from her, so I am at her house everyday, especially now that she is having trouble walking, some days are worse than others. I am really going to try to do more for her around her house, just to at least try to ease that burden a little. Thanks for the response, have a great day.
