Praying for Greta: “My wife continues to decline…”

Many commenters know Greta and her husband Mark.  The Anchoress last night posted this comment from Mark:

My wife continues to decline. She was not supposed to go to the march for life but insisted and anyone who has seen her post knows that stopping her on anything to fight for life has a hard task. She just completed her second round of chemo in her fight with cancer a few weeks back and the doctors did not want her to go. We did everything possible in arranging a private plane and rooms near the center of everything, but she insisted on marching and if you were there, you know it was wet and cold. She returned home with a cold and now is fighting Pneumonia. Her condition and age are not working for her. She was to have gone back for more Chemo in a few weeks after tests confirmed the need last week before she left. Several very good priests friends came to our house today and we had mass here with her and family and friends. She is being attended in shifts by many of the women she has helped in deciding against abortion. We just completed the rosary using the Pope JPII CD she loves with all our grandchildren. She is resisting going to the hospital, but believe she will end up there before the night is out. She has several doctors who have spent the Sunday with her that have also been in the fight for life with her.

Let’s remember this family and all who love them in our prayers.
