It has been a while since I've posted but then I saw your name & this thread, and I have to tell you that my heart just goes out to you completely Marsha.

I'm so very sorry that you are going through such pain, and fervently hope it goes away.

Hugs from across the pond.

Shirley

Hi...

Just a quick update, I am still holding my own and do not follow up with the oncologist until January... I take it one day at a time... I still deal with the peripheral neuropathy, some nights worse than others. Of course, the grieving for Tom goes on.... I do not think I will ever get over losing him so young.

I know you understand Marilyn, hugs to you..

Marsha, just wanted you to know my continued prayers are with you. Sorry you are still dealing with the neuropathy.

Its nice when we get a little oncologist break. I dont see mine until may, unless my blood tests in jan are bad.

Keep fighting tough.

Marsha - I have not been on this part of the boards for a while and just saw this thread. I wanted to let you know I too, am so very sorry for what you have been going through. I hope the new year finds you in remission and much less pain. My heart goes out to you and your family. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Life definitely is not fair at times. It makes me sad that such a giving and wonderful person that has already suffered such a great loss would have to endure cancer herself. Take care of yourself and know we are all pulling for you.

BTW - I wanted to thank you for your words in your first post. We all need to be reminded, often, that life is fleeting and to stop and smell those roses now and then. Its just what I needed to see today.

Just a quick update, I did see my oncologist and it was on my birthday... I figured it was just as good as any other day to hear good news. My numbers are creeping up, it may mean more treatment and I will see him again in March. I will try to put him off till after May if I am still doing ok as I am going on a Disney Cruise with very dear friends to Alaska and I need to do this, it will be hard without my Tommy, but I know he would want him to do this as he always wanted to go to Alaska, again I do these things in his honor..

So, holding my own, neuropathy still there, increased one med and it is now holding the neuropathy to a minimum, I can deal with that. It is tough sleeping with that kind of hot and cold sensation in your feet and that is when I get it, at night, during the day, just a little numbness and I can handle that.

I am here, I am doing the best I can, sometimes I only read, sometimes I feel like posting, I try to keep busy during the days, the nights are tough without Tom.....but it is what it is, one of his favorite expressions...

Remember, live the day, the moment, go for it and enjoy what brings you pleasure, put those little annoying things out of your mind when you can. Another good one that I try to live by, again from Tom, sometimes it does no good to worry about things you have no control over...and so I try to live my life as he did.... fighting for remission and loving his family..

Hugs to all,
Marsha

Thank you Marsha for the update and happy to see you post. One day at a time.

Tom would want you to go on and see you happy and take each moment and savor it as it comes.

I just lost my dad to cancer. My mom finished treatment for breast cancer and had open heart surgery and my sister is fighting stage 4 lung cancer. All this - in the last year. It is so hard - but are you right - there are things we have no control over. We have our moments and we need to move on.

I am sure your feelings are like a roller coaster. No right or wrong.
Thinking of you and praying for you.
