Jill and everyone, as Rose says so eloquently we're all here for you whenever. I haven't posted as much or as often as I was trying to keep my promise to Jill on leaving sunbearz2 free for those with stage iv cancer who needed to hear from other's in the same situation....I confess I've been itching to jump in and encourage you all facing trials right now.
Thanks again for having us ladies.
Patti, take a break and a deep breath, you have friends here who will still be here for you when you are ready and able to come back here..
Chris, have been watching your little guys and loving them lol...keep laughing and seeing the funny side of this if you can.
Rose, I was'nt aware you were undergoing tests but you have my thoughts and good wishes for only negative results!
Judy, I can only second what everyone has said, it hurts us all to know you're suffering. If the bulk of this pain is the uterus it shoulds ease once thats gone. I recall being in agony with gall stones for months while still working and would have ran to the O.R and jumped on that table to get it out lol...I know in your case it's far more serious than that but I know too there's a good chance once you have that op you'll wake up free of pain and renewed again to fight the rest of these little bugger's!!
Becky, I've missed seeing you here too and hope you're just busy enjoying life...
I think I said hi and welcome to our new ladies on their own threads but if not welcome again girls and I look forward to getting to know you all better in the weeks ahead. There's so much support here no one need ever feel alone.
Gail,Rena Brenda, Sadie and anyone else I'm forgetting, hope you all are doing well and Gail and Rena, I look forward to hearing the full story of the breast fest!!!
P.S...Jill, yes this is
a mets site and often the realities of that can be too much for some but I think the mix of celebrations/good news gives a clear picture there is life after mets which can only be positive for anyone coming here...despite having the sadness when things go badly for someone too. Whats important is having a "safe haven" with a welcome and willingness to share I believe.
P.S...Jill, take your
time too and sort your own problems, I'm sure we can all manage for a while but are here if you need us.
