From what I have been hearing today Lauri, you are right on about the pre-existing stuff. There is a lot to learn.
And I too hope my reason for staying is actually non existent.
But I think no matter which way things turn out I am going to hang around this board for a while if that's okay. I lost three people I loved dearly, my mom-in-law, my father-in-law and my step-mom, to cancer all within a few months of each other. It was so sudden and all three were gone so quickly we never dealt with the long term side of cancer. And raising money for a cause like the Sunshine Kids is wonderful, but somehow it just doesn't hit home nearly like this does.
I am so impressed by the stories and courage and humor on this forum. It seems to me like the best of the best come here to encourage each other on and offer advice and love. What a comfort and inspiration these women all are to those like me who feel like suddenly they've been thrown under a bus and are wondering how to get back up on the curb.
Thank you, Lauri, and thank you, Mary K, for sharing and caring. Hugs back at you both too!
