You set such a good example for all of us fighting this disease. You have always been strong and not afraid to share your fight and will to get better. I will have you in my prayers for the Lord's blessings and grace. He will give a supporting hand and be with you always through this latest battle.
Congratulations on your length of survival and prayers to lessen the pain you are experiencing.
Love and hugs,
Always holding you close, my friend.
Hi Cathi, read your latest and immediately wanted to give you a hug for your 6 years and then one because of your recurrence!
I'm sorry that you are going through this again and hoping that it will be easier. I know that when I had my recurrence I was just as scared as the first time -- dreading the chemo and wondering if I could do it. It made me feel scared AGAIN.
But the bottom line is we do chemo and surgery and radiation etc so that we can do the regular things everyday and be with those we love. We want to live and that gives us the strength to take chemo yet one more time!
I hate cancer and what it does to not only those who have it but their families. It is so hard. I will think of you and send my prayers that you can enjoy some piece of mind with everyday things and find the hope and strength to do what you need to do to put this chapter behind you.
Cathi: I haven't had the privilege of meeting you personally but I have read your posts and know the strength that you have and will continue to have.
I know how defeated and scared you are feeling. When I was told that I had Stage IV, mets to the bone, it scared the He@@ out of me. I didn't think that I would be able to face chemo again. The fears I believe were worse than at the time of the original diagnosis. But, after 26 months of weekly treatments, I beat it. It wasn't easy but w/ the support and love and prayers from your family and friends, you will beat this again.
Lots of prayers being said for you. I hope that they can find something that will help control the pain and allow you to feel good.
BTW..how was your vacation?
Gentle hugs and strong prayers....Deb
Bittersweet, I am sure and I wish that you didn't have the pain. I hate cancer but I am also thankful that it has allowed me to meet some pretty special women...you one of the most special. Sending prayers your way today, tomorrow and for always. L&H, Christi
