I have been thinking of you all day. I wasn't able to go with Becky today for a cat scan and I really felt like I was lettiong her down. (She didn't feel that way but I did) There is so little that I can do. No amount of time feels like enough.
Becky and her family went to The Newport Aquairium lasts weekend. They had a great time but it took it's toll. She was exhausted and having some trouble with her balance on Mon. Today is better. She will get scan results on Thursday. If eeverything goes as planned she will start another chemo next week.
I know that you all keep us all in your prayers and it is so much appreciated. It is so comforting to know you are here at anytime.
You are all in my prayers as always.
Love and hugs,

Oh {{{{{ANGELA)))))) You are such a good friend to Becky.I know you feel bad about not going for the cat scan but like you said, she did not feel that way. She knows how much you love her.
I am glad to hear that Becky is enjoying time with her family. Please tell her that she is in my thoughts and prayers. And you are also in my thoughts and prayers Angela. You are such a good and sweet friend. I am proud to know you. Take care sweetie, Gail

I agree with Gail. You need a hug. It is almost impossible to have children and be free every time you are needed. Beck is sure lucky to have you. I want to thank you so much for all you ARE able to do. I know Beck knows how fortunate she is. To echo Gails words, I am also proud to know you, and want to make sure you know to take special care of you. L&H Joyce
How wonderful it would be to see Angels where there are only clouds. How sad it would be to see clouds where there are Angels.

Gosh, Angela, you can't feel guilty when you have other things you have to do. You have been so devoted to Becky that I am sure everyone does not expect you to be there every single time. I understand how it could bother you, but I know that it shouldn't and you shouldn't let it. Wish we could all be there to take turns and help. Here's a big cyberhug (((Angela))). MK

Isn't it wonderful that you can come here when you feel the need?  We want to gather you up in a great big HUG.  You are such a good friend and I know Becky loves and appreciates you.  You need to take time for just you too.  It helps renew and energize you.

I have you in my thoughts and prayers.  (((((HUGS)))))

{{Angela}} I know how you feel but like everyone has already said, you can't be there all the time. I am sure Becky is more than grateful and very thankful for the dear friend you have been to her. I feel so bad that I live in the same city and can't help much. With working it's hard. Sending both you and Becky gentle hugs and lots of prayers. I love you both!

Becky called me over the Christmas holidays and said she couldnt ask for a better friend.than you... She said you are always there for her and how she appreciates all you do. Please dont feel bad when you
arent able to be with her...Just know how much she loves you.

Praying for good results and nothing new on her scans.

Here is a comforting hug from me...(((((Angela)))))

Love you

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

I agree with the other gals. Please don't be so hard on yourself for not being able to be with Becky for everything she is going thru, I know that she doesn't expect you to stop everything to be by her side. Sometimes things come up and it is just impossible to be there. I am sure that Becky appreciates what you can do for her and so do we.

I wish that I could be there and give you one huge hug but I guess a cyber hug will just have to do {{{{{{{ANGELA}}}}}}.

Isn't what Cathi told you just the best? To know that she told her that she couldn't have a better friend than you. That sure says something about your character sweetie.

Sending love and prayers to both you and Becky.

Love ya,

Angela, you couldn't be a better friend. You can't do everything and be everywhere. Becky knows that you are there for her emotionally, and that's what counts.

Sending you lots of hugs, and prayers for you both.

Thanks Ladies,
You are all the greatest. I love you and am so greatfull for finding you. If I hadn't found you all I wouldn't have found Becky. What a Blessing you all have been.
Love & Hugs,
Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.
