Bernadette: I am so sorry that you got this news just when you should have been celebrating. Well, just take it one step at a time. Hopefully, it won't be anything more than scars, like MK said. If it is something else, then we are all here for you. I had a recurrance 2 yrs ago. Scared the crap out of me. But, as you know, in Jan, after 2 yrs of weekly treatments, I received an all clear. Just keep the faith. I know how difficult it is but remember, if the chemo got rid of them once, it can do it again.
Try and enjoy this weekend. We will be there w/ pink feathers floating all around you!
So sorry about the news. Hang in there. I will have you in my prayers.
The last couple of days have been tough, I have been thinking alot about what ifs. I dont want to do cemo again if possible. I'm so glad to have all of you to talk to. I tend to go into a shell when I have something serious to face, so I have not talked to my family and friends yet. I guess it is just wait and see time for me. I will keep you all posted.

Bernadette: I understand your not discussing this w/ your family and friends. When I was rediagnosed, I did the same thing. I didn't want all of the telephone calls and drop in visits. Plus, I didn't want to believe it. I didn't tell anyone until all of the tests were run. The "What-if's" are what send you into the tailspin. Just remember that there are new treatments. When I knew that I had to go on chemo again, I just went to pieces. But it was a fairly easy chemo and I tolerated it well for 2 yrs. So, hang in there. Know that we are all praying and sending you lots of love and strength.
