Best of luck with your orientation, I hope you enjoy your time and will get calls to sub soon. I'll be praying for your sister and son, as well as for you. It must be so difficult for you with so much going on.
You've got alot on your plate right now, please remember to try and take some time to take care of yourself! You are such a valuable asset to all of us here, but we all understand that you need some time for yourself. Take time and take care of you! Great big enormous HUGS!
The reason I posted was to let you all know I may be MIA and why. I thought it may be something you would like to be informed of.
Thank you to those of you who responded.
Thank you Betsy. I guess what I missed posting was I am like everyone else here and have been struggling desperately for weeks..............with both the Anxiety and Panic, and the Depression.
I need some serious support.
Anxiety 2007; IBS 2004; Chronic Hives 2002. Medications: Allegra, Zantac, Xanax, Darvocet.
I know you can handle anything thrown at you
I also know better than to tell you to slow down!!! Trust that you have every ounce of my support dear friend. I am dispatching my finest faeries to come and sprinkle you with healing dust.
Know that we ALL care very much for you.
To all of the A & P Family
I brought this to the top for the new members who did not know about my sister, Beverly.
She was flown from North Dakota on 8/13 to Minneapolis and admitted to the U of MN Hospital with Ovarian Cancer and at that time she was in organ systems failure. She was put on a ventilator and the outcome looked bleak. She was way to weak for surgery and it took until 2/19/09 , 6 months, to get her built up and ready for surgery. She received chemo and had to many tests and procedures to list. She had her surgery which was extensive and included Right radical mastectomy as well as the extensive abdominal surgery for removal of all the cancer sites. She returned to surgery in less the 24 hour post op for a bleed from the mastectomy site.
She did recover and the Gyn Oncologist who performed the surgery was pleased and said all looked well. She felt the path report looked good except for some micro spots of the cancer and that 2 more rounds of chemo would kill off those cancer cells.
Beverly had to recover from her surgery before the chemo and tomorrow was the day she was to have her first round of chemo.
She developed severe abdominal pain and was admitted to the hospital last night.............the cancer has returned and along with it a great sadness for me. I have to keep hoping and holding on...........I need to be brave for her and for the new members this is the main issue I am dealing with right now.
On the good side...........this is testing my ability to stay in the moment. I am slipping and yesterday was not good but this morning I have a grip on myself and I do have to work today before going to the hospital.
So wish me luck and know my heart is always here in the A & P Forum.
