I need your help.

Last night I received a call from my mom.  Yesterday afternoon, Aunt Betty, who I consider to be my "extra" Grandma, has gone into the hospital.  She was having trouble breathing, and they are not sure if it is congenital heart failure or cancer in her lungs (she's had and conquered breast cancer).  I'm going to visit her shortly in the hospital, since I can walk there from my house.

The difficult part is that the first anniversary of my grandma's passing is approaching, and this is kind of an emotional time for everyone already.  My grandma had dementia, was 85, and was ready to go.  Aunt Betty has some living left to do.  I would love it if everyone could send some prayers her way.

Grandma and I some birthdays ago...her b-day was three days after mine, so we often shared cakes.
Thanks guys. I'll keep you posted!
