in this last year of suffering and fighting and trying to survive. i realize what a gift i have been given.
i might could stay home in bed and at best get another 6 months,but i have done that for over a year now. with the blessing of my husband and childern im taking one more journy.
i live in alaska so the bulk of my family like aunts and uncles brothers and sisters are in other parts of the lower 48. i leave here in a few days i get to visit everyone i get to spend some time with all my friends and family that are far away and i get to say goodbye.
today as i was going threw things i realized how much of a gift i have that i get to do this.
then when i come home all that is left for my husband childern and grandbabies to do is be together.
i fought this esld as hard as i could. and anyone with this diease knows that the liver is only one of the issues that shows up.please understand i didnt give up or quit im just not going to win. but i beleive god has given me this gift and i am feeling so blessed i just had to share it with someone. please everyone keep fighting. alot of you can and will win.

Hi, BaBa!  What a wonderful idea!  I don't know that I would have the energy to do it.  Have a wonderful time with family and friends and be sure to check in with us if you can!

Hello BaBa, It sounds like you have come to terms with your illness and made the best decision for yourself. If I were in your shoes I'd probably do the same thing.

When the doctors finally told us that there wasn't anything more that they could do for my husband, I kind of did the same thing for him. I got in contact with his family that hadn't seen him in a few years and let them know that they were more than welcome to come and visit him, he was in no shape to go visiting then. He had such a wonderful time reminiscing with about 10 different family members during his last few weeks. It was like he was holding court from his bed.
So it's wonderful that you are able to make the trip. And your family will remember that for the rest of their lives.

Please do check in with us again if you get the chance.

Lot's of thoughts and prayers..........

thank you for understanding, as far as being able to do this , i gotta say it is all about prayer. i beleive that this is what i am supose to do with my time. rick i have a brother-in-law that is going to take me on my last fishing trip. it will be for bass whatever kentucky lake or tenn river has to offer. I'm looking forward to going as he and i have fished together for 35 yrs. so im sure i will have a fishing story for you after that.
i want you all to know i have read your strugles felt your pain and gained from your strength. i know i would not have been able to come to the peace i have found had i never found this web sight.
i read it for a long time before i joined. it takes special people to offer the answers and support without it becomming a so called pity party. please keep it up i have shared this web sight with my doc and he is going to be sharing it with other patients.
i hope each of you know how wonderful it is to do what you sure it can get overwhelming even frustrating.please dont quit. my prayers are with each of you. keep fighting
