Marsha, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you get your remission soon. You are a fantastic person. I'm so glad you are in there fighting, though I can't imagine how tough that is to do on top of missing your husband so much. I wish you peace and health.

We are all here, all watching, all hoping. Perhaps your story will motivate some more to be blood / platelet donors as I am sure you will be needing those if not already.

Marsha, sending you a and lots of prayers. My heart goes out to you with all you are dealing with both physically and emotionally. Keep fighting tough! Someone sent me a song that had the words in it you have to go through the valley before you reach the mountain top.., I know sometimes I felt like I couldnt see the light at the end of the tunnel but it is there!!Sometimes it just takes a little longer to get to. I am so sorry for all your pain too and I hope the med will give you some relief. (I remember you posted how mad you were when I told you I had to ration my pain meds!!). I know what you mean about them not getting to the dx initially either. I had the almost same thing happen as you. The little hospital kept looking for everything else and ignored the lump on my neck. At the big hospital it was 1 doc and 1 test and they knew it was cancer. I am glad you are going for a second opinion and hope you get the care that you need and deserve. Blessings to you always. Keep fighting tough!!

Marsha just checking in on you, and want to you to know that while I may be miles away from you physically I am with you emotionally. I don't know how on earth I would have coped such a short time after losing my DH then finding myself in my own battle. It is cruel. My heart goes out to you.

Marsha, So sorry to hear that things have been even more difficult for you.

I am sure there are no words that I can say to make you feel better but I shall be thinking of you and hope that soon you can be pain free.

Marsha, I followed Tom's story & can't believe you're now dealing with this too.
I pray for your remission & hope you can plan a trip back to WDW very soon. The second opinion at Dana Farber is a wise move. Dana Farber is an awesome hospital & they do fantastic work. They treated my DH & I've never experienced a more caring & professional group. Stay strong, it's difficult but it sounds like you'll be in remission very soon. God Bless.

Marhsa, thank you for those kind words. Yes, that is my beloved Daddy. He never let this awful disease get him down and always, every single day, had a smile on his face. I know it's hard but keep your chin up. I am praying for you!

Marsha keeping you in my prayers. Stay strong and hang in there.

My mom was recently in the hospital for some kind of breast infection (she is going through chemo for breast cancer) and I was in the room when the patient next to her had the bone marrow test/procedure. Ob boy did it sound painful.

Lent is a special time in my religion, I know we are not suppose to talk religion, but it's a time for extra prayers, and you will be my extra in my prayers.

Marsha, prayers continue.

As to...."Tom loved WDW so... it will be very hard for me to be there without him." I'm sure Tom will always be with you. Soul mates don't leave they just watch you from a different view.

God Bless.

You were on my mind this morning, Marsha. I hope today brings you some comfort and at least a smile or two.
