Carla, I am so sorry to hear this. I am so glad you have your dad in your corner. If our Connie says one spot is hopeful you know she knows. I will be doing some prayers and thoughts for you. Special gentle squeeze from me and give your dad a great big hug from me. He is special too. L&H Joyce

Carla, I too am sorry to hear of this setback. The others have seemed to fare well with the same treatment you will have, and I hope the same for you. Sending giant cyber hugs...and please tell your DH that you will need a little more rest during rads...

Oh how I wish I could override the edit here and write the words that I REALLY WANT TO WRITE!

I think you know what words!

THIS SUCKS! This is totally unfair! And I am Dam mad!

Carla I feel so bad for you!!!!!!

How is this possible??? I JUST DON'T GET IT!


Stop being so strong Carla! I mean it. If God only gives us what we can handle then stop handling things and maybe you will catch a break.

My heart is upset but in my head I know that this Tx is doable and can kick the cancer until it is gone- but my heart keeps saying but this is Carla- she has had ENOUGH.

I KNOW you can do this- I just wish to GOD you didn't have to.

I am SO SORRY and I am praying really hard for you and I am going to kick something as soon as I log off here.

I am here for you- anything you need just ask.

Love to you,

Oh, Carla,

I'm so sorry to hear this. I hate this freakin disease. Your poor dad must be devastated. I'm sending prayers and gentle hugs your way. Hang in there, Sweetie. There's always hope. And prayers do work.

I am just so saddened and frustrated that you have gotten even more bad news, Carla. You really have been through enough. Sending prayers and positive thoughts that the new treatments will kick the mets. Try to remain optimistic. Hugs, Lauri

Sending mega prayers and hugs your way. Hang in there sweetie. Good luck with the rads/gamma knife procedures. It will be ok. We are with you through it all.

Bless your dad for his caring concern for you too.

Love and God Bless,

((((CARLA)))) I am so sorry. I know exactly how you are feeling. I went through that last winter. It seems so scary. The WBR will really make you tired. I was on the couch after each session for the whole day. So if you can, get the latest appointment you can do. And by the end it really didn't matter when I got it b/c it just wears you out. Be prepared if you have any hair ( I don't know if you do, so excuse me if you don't ) to lose it. If you have any question please feel free to ask me. I am still being wathced carefully and getting MRI's like very 3 months....ugh....I hate them. But I will tell you it's not as bad as it seems......I cried the whole time they did the brain scan b/c I knew they were there and then I cried that whole evening. It SUCKS to hear that. It's so scary b/c the brain is such an unknown and you never know what can happen. But I am ok with it now. So far things are stable and I never had seizures or anything. Just my reaction time was off and my body wouldn't do what my mind wanted it to do. If I needed to get up my mind would try and try to make me get up, but my body just didn't want too. It's odd that they found it and you had no symptoms! But it's good b/c they found it early! Don't worry yourself into more sickness. WBR is VERY effective and so is Gamma knife or Novalis, if that is in your area.
Goodluck and understanding hugs from somone who knows all about it.
L&H, Shelley

I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this. But I do agree with Jessiecat: let God handle SOME of it, anyway. It's hard to do, especiallly with a person as strong as you obviously are. And you ARE strong, because you're beating back a monster, one punch at a time. Hang in there.
