on Thanksgiving Day.  Don't know what to say - neither does mom.  My appt is on Wed morning - the cancer board says to be there early for a mammogram and sonogram and to take the films with me to see the doc later that day.  The truth is, that I am really scared and no one will acknowledge my feelings and understand how I feel right now.  They all want to change the subject the second that I walk into the room and have "happy thoughts"  so that I won't feel depressed.  All that I can think about is that this totally sucks!  Save the happy thoughts for later!  Just let me feel what I feel.  Tell Dh that I just want a pink boah for Christmas!
L & H,

Cathy, sorry you are going through this again. We know that every lump, bump, ache and pain is frightening.

We'll be there, sending the PCE to Houston on Wednesday...

Cathy, {{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}} I know how we panic over things that most people just don't understand. Well, we understand and will be with you through it all. Hang in there sweetie. L&H, Gail

Many many great big hugs.  You are certainly allowed your feelings.  We understand and I will be there Wednesday with you waiting and helping you through all the tests and doctor visits.  I am chanting.



Many Holiday Blessings to All

Hi Cathy,

SO sorry that you have to go thru this... As the others
have said, most people dont understand or dont know how
to act or what to say...We will be here for you...

stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....

Filling the PCE and we will be there with you on Wednesday. Pink boas at the ready and we will be marching through those doors looking like one gigantic flamingo. Keep that vision in your head and it might actually give you a tee hee. You do know giant flamingos can not hear so very well. We will need to you post what is going on. Wishing you the very best of news. L&H from the pink tail feather.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I went through this with a mother and a son who only want to hear happy words and thoughts, so I understand completely what you're going through. My prayers are with you.

Oh Cathy I am sorry you are having to deal with this. I know it has to be scary, but remember..don't really worry until you know there is something to worry about. We will all be there with you Wednesday, so until then try to keep calm and try to stay positive. Hugs and PRAYERS, MK
