Hi all

Just got a text from Buttercup asking me to post quickly for her until shes up to it!

TMJ/SUZANE– Buttercup asked me to tell you she got the message you wanted to talk to her and she’s so so sorry she hasn’t been in touch and her emails are also not working and to tell you she is fine and as soon as she can will get in contact and she hopes you are okay!

First of all about her, she’s at home and has finished her chemo but still very sick and weak, shes in a LOT of pain from both cancer and her CP which the infections she has are making her feel awful and have damaged a lot of her intestines which is causing trouble now aswell (they aren't sure if the treatment for them worked yet waiting on test results). She’s done really well to get through all of this, she didn’t consider giving up once and has been in good spirits despite how sick she got and how tired she is, her attitude is what has got us all thru, well her family! I haven’t rly been around much as im moving so been busy. But still have been to see her when I can. Anyway, once again her strength brings tears to my eyes and the road might not be so rough once shes got through the next few weeks we just have to pray and keep her motivated.

She wanted me to post to say shes so sorry she hasn’t been keeping you updated but as soon as she has the strength to type she will write to you all! She said she hoped to be able to post during chemo but that didn’t happen so that’s why she lost contact and shes sorry and hoped you didn’t notice she was gone too much

Hugs to u all

Thanks for the update, I have been wondering how Buttercup has been doing. I know I have not been posting very much the last week or two, I have been on a trip visiting my sister,  in Kentucky, but I do try, to at least get online and  read the forum once a day, even if I do not have time to post.
     Buttercup  stay strong you have come along long way, and no ,matter how much more you have to go, YOU can do this! YOU can lick this thing! Just keep your faith and keep believing and you will succeed! I keep you in my prayers! and Wish you well!
