You know that you and the girls, and their families, are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sure you're having a wee bit of trouble praying at the moment...I know I would if I was in your situation...so we'll take care of that for you. This is just crappy. You have to wonder who's in charge up there!

Oh Marsha I don't pop over here too often, but I had read about your post with regards to Tom and his amazing fight and now this, such a terrible thing I read. You don't deserve any of this.

I wish you all the luck in the world with your fight and will keep you in my thoughts.

Hi Marsha

When I went on the computer tonight and saw your post, I had to go back and read it twice because I could not believe it. Aw, Marsha, I feel very sad about this and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as well as your girls. Please take good care of yourself - you are being cared for in a great hospital and I still believe there are miracles around every corner. Take care. Hugs, Barb

Marsha, I am truly saddened to hear of you having to battle with cancer. You've fought so long and hard for Tommy and I'm so sorry that you'll be grieving and fighting your own fight with cancer simultaneously. Life can be so hard sometimes.

I recall spending the weekend with Tommy, you, Jody and Karen at the Cape. You opened your home to us and it just seems worlds away rather then just over a year. It was a lovely time and I cherish the memories.

I know you had been strong for so long for Tommy , but just keep fighting for yourself, your children and those beautiful grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers are with you and especially your girls.

Marsha I am so speechless , I hate that phrase that God only gives what you can handle, for some people it is too much obviously.

Keeping you in my prayers my friend.

Hang in there! You will be in my prayers. While it won't always be a pleasant road, know that you can live with this. My uncle has been battling Multiple Myloma for 5 - 6 years. He has to travel to Arkansas for his main doctors, major treatments, and checkups. His local docs do the rest under the orders of the Arkansas docs.

We also have another lady in our town who has been going down this road for about 3 years.

God Bless!

Oh Marsha. How rough for you (and your girls/family) to have to deal with this on the heels of Tommy's death.

I am grateful you have access to excellent care.

I am sending you all my positive thoughts and prayers...it seems so inadequate

Judi asked that you know she is thinking of you too.
