Well, last night I spent 10 hours in the emergency room.
Yesterday afternoon I started vomiting again and had the
runs again. Onc sent to to ER around 5:00pm and was there
until 3:00am ... UGH !!! They gave me lots of fluids by IV,
Zofran and stuff for cramping and the runs. I feel better
but I am so aggravated that I continue to feel bad.
I am trying to keep a good attitude but it sometimes it
is tough....
Thanks for listening.

Oh Cathi, I hate to hear this news. I am still hopeful and keeping fingers crossed that you will get the break you so desperately deserve...
Hang in there honey, and vent here all you need apology needed.

Cathi, I can only imagine what you are going through. It's really time for you to get some breaks. I know you must be so tired of hospitals and drs offices. I am praying that the right combination comes up soon.

Love You, Jo-Ann

Oh Cathi I am so sorry you are feeling so awful. I wish there was something I could do to help other than keep you in my prayers that you will feel better soon. I can only imagine how hard it must be to stay up when you feel so down and awful. Big hugs, MK

Cathi, aggravation means you are still in the fight sweetie. I know you are tired and sick of being sick. I have you in my prayers. Can I come to you and do anything? Please let me know, otherwise I am with you in spirit holding your hand.

Cathi, I wish you could stabilize. Nausea and runs just take all the energy out of you. I hope this is the last of it. Take care.

Oh,hon, you can't possibly have a good attitude about all of this. If you did, I would worry more about  you. I am so angry and miserable about you and all of the other sick people. I am praying for that break. I want you to get something new that won't make you sick. The paper here had an article about new trial drugs. Has your Onc said anything about the possibility of a trial?
Love you and I'll keep praying and hoping. Hugs, Di

Hi there dear friend. Just wanted to let you know that I am sending prayers and loving thoughts your way. It just makes me so angry to think you have to be dealing with all of this. You DO deserve a break SOON!

God Bless you.

Cathi, we are here for you to commiserate with anytime you want. You certainly have good reason, and we understand totally.
Hang in there, and I hope you feel better very very soon.
Love, Peg
