Hi all. I hope that you are all doing well. I miss you.

I spent last week in the hospital and the time since trying to acclimate to being at home. Trying to keep the symptoms straight while battling the cancer and ESLD is a full-time job. Some of you know.

Anyway, I'm still alive and fighting. I feel like cr**, can't take any foods by mouth, I hurt a lot, my attitude su***, and I'm probably a real misery to be around.

So, be well!! You're all in my thoughts and prayers.

John, we have been so worried about you!  Thanks for posting.  Sorry you were in the hospital, but it's progress if you are now home. 

You hang in there, my friend, and fight with all you've got. 

My prayers and positive thoughts are with you, as always.

Lately, I've been listening to Eva Cassidy.  She has a calming effect on me.

So glad that you took the time to update us. I am sorry that you have been in the hospital but very glad that you are home now. I can only imagine what it is like to be battle two dragons at the same time, but I know what a fighter you are. Stay strong and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear JohnCT

Thanks for posting.   We all need our spirits lifted from time to time and your postings do that for me and many others.   I am awed at your strength and good humor when I'm certain you don't feel well.  Yet you still write and make us smile.   You are a gift to us!   Thank you.  

With much admiration,

Joan

Hi John

Your post did wonders for me.  I know you are feeling bad but you can still put a smile on MY face.  I hope they took good care of you in the hospital.  It was probably time that someone else helped you for a few days.  I know it sucks it had to be the hospital but your must be doing better or you would not be home.  Please keep working hard to get better because we all need you! Big time!!!  I pray for you every day.

John, if you think we have forgotten about you just because you haven't posted lately, you are wrong.  You are very much in our thoughts and prayers.

I hope you are done with treatment and feeling somewhat better.  PLEASE post a few words if you are able.


Hugs,
Connie
