Not All Feb. Birthdays

This is the cake we had at our family party on Saturday the 14th. of February. Everything has fallen apart in a little over a week. My 90 year old father got sick and had to be take to urgent care by my nephew. He should have been admitted to the hospital but has a little dog so he wanted to go home. He is weak and shaky and I am worried about him living alone.
My mother fell, she is 82 and lives alone. She called my sister-in-law(who has a horrible cough and cold) at 10 p.m. to call the ambulance and take her to the ER. She was lying in the ER all nite until almost 4:00 p.m. the next day because they didn't have a room to put her in..........then the worst of all this is my lovely brother is very sick and had to be taken to the VA (by my still sick sister-in-law) and was admitted and had a CT scan. He started with a ear problem. Got the sore throat, his ear drum burst and he has infection thu out his body giving him blisters on his face and in his mouth from the herpes virus. eeeeeeekkkkkk. He has a weak immune system from chemo and has been in remission from lymphoma for a year now...Please pray for my brother. He has been thru so much.
