But it seems his wife.. me has to put her grieving on hold and get into the battle herself with this blood cancer called multiple myeloma....not even sure I am typing it right... the pain is bad in my arm as the liquid tumor is on my neck and so yesterday I walked the halls of Mass General where my loved one walked and had my first treatment of Radiation.....the same radiologist who he adored....and now I am in the battle myself...

There is no cure, it is chronic, there will be tests and more tests,chemo, bone marrow biopsy one is done., now that was not fun... but I ask you this.....keep my family who is in a mess in your good thoughts....they lost their Dad, they are worried about their Mom and I am taking it the best I can.. At times my typing with be erratic as the nerves in my right arm are affected by this tumor... '

Remember this.. all of you here.. life is precious, take your time, smell the roses, do good and love each other... you just never know where life will take you.. I will be in and out but will check in... please stay safe and healthy...

Best,
Marsha
I am so sorry to hear this news. What a blow! Remember that the trials you have, you have because you are the only one who can handle them. The trials I had earlier last year, I had because I was the one to handle them. God obviously has one big plan for you.

I am a very strong faith holder and will make a prayer right away for you, your husband(who I have no doubt is watching over you as we speak), and your family.

I am at loss for words. Life really has some odd cards to play sometimes. All my love from Calgary-Canada.

Anna, Marsha hasn't updated since 2/17. Does anyone have a way to contact her? My prayers are being said right now. I pray she's just resting.

I know she is doing ok, but I have not personally spoken to her recently. I will try to contact her and ask for her to stop by. I know life is beyond hectic when you are dealing with even half as much as she has on her plate.

I wanted to just let you know that she is "ok" and hopefully will be able to stop by soon to update us here.

Hi all..

Thanks for checking on me.. I wish I had the best news actually it is good, but with a little twist to it..

I have a remission from the Multiple Myeloma, but the treatment has left me with horrible,, painful neuropathy in my feet. There is no respite from this, no peace, I wish there was.. I take lots of pills such as neurontin for the nerve pain, which I do not think works and I am sure there are others who have nerve pain that would agree with me, and also lots of pain medication every 4 hours, just to get through the day.. The nights are the worst, because when your body relaxes, that is when this activates and so add in pain and burning in my feet, well that does not make for a restful night until the pain pills kick in along with the ativan.. I sound like a drug addict but there is no way around this, it is that bad..

Now, I am praying that this is not permanent, and just a side effect from the treatment that will eventually go away.. that is what I am praying for. I am doing reiki, I am doing massage, I am going to call a pain clinic today to see if they can help me. I am in process of switching my treatment to the Cape while I am in this remission. Alll big procedures will be done at Dana Farber but maintenance will be here on Cape Cod..

There will be no WDW in my future for now as I cannot do any walking, or it will be and a scooter for sure, but I will get there at some point. I know Tom would want that for me.. and I will let you all know when I am going so if you see this woman on a scooter, crying her eyes out behind her sunglasses, missing her guy terribly.. that would be me..

I am trying, truly I am........if I could say to you all the neuropathy was gone... well I would be doing a happy dance for sure.. but I am still struggling..

Any suggestions are always appreciated... and I am willing to try holistic as well.. they claim that even accupuncture cannot help this...

so.. thanks for asking, that is where I am, even the computer hurts to sit at... can you believe it, my beloved computer and it causes pain to my feet..

hugs all around,
Marsha

Hi Marsha,
Thanks for the update and I am sorry that you are having to delay the happy dance, it sounds like you are in terrible pain.
No suggestions here just sending you a cyber cuddle and hoping that things improve in the near future.

I can't imagine my beloved computer causing me pain.........can you lie down with a laptop?

Thinking of you.

Quasar
