I just read this thread again. . . Eugenia, Kitt and Lyn :). . . You both are such strong women that I hope you are proud of that :)

Plus you made me cry. . . Been a little emotional about family today.

I hope your sisters the best of healing and recovery. May you all have many more years of joy and good memories :)

Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)
Your bro,

Thanks Sam,

I come from a family with a long history of cancer but not heart problems...........well maybe a broken one once in awhile.  redface

My husband had prostate cancer and I had skin cancer so the big C doesn't scare us as much as makes us mad and fighters.

Facing it head on and doing what you have to do is our way of dealing with it.

You are so kind, take care and hope you are not in the storm areas headed this way for the next couple of days.

Im saying a prayer for all those at HW affected by Cancer- it is vicious and unfair and it doesnt discriminate. No one deserves to hurt that way. My patients used to amaze me with the strength they displayed in the face of adversity.

Love, peace, blessings, calm- these things i pray

Hi Eugenia
I think you're amazingly strong for going through this with your sister, especially for someone who has health anxiety. You are strong!
I am proud of you :)

Hi and thank-you to eveyone who responded to my thread.  All your words inspired me and helped me get through my sister's chemo treatment.  It was truly an inspiring day....not only did my sister handle it fairly well but the people receiving treatment in her room were so very positive man even saying that he'll miss coming to the cancer ward as he has been taken so good care of and has 7 doctors fussing over him!!!  I was truly amazed...scared still but amazed.  I really want to get the point where my health anxiety doesn't bring up my fears.  I want to be strong and take what's ever given to me with some fight....not give into the anxiety.  All your posts and the people I met yesterday were truly encouraging.

Thank-you it is nice to know that someone out there understands and cares.
