Unhappy Something we're not so thankful for...

My mother-in-law was told she was cancer free in May, but her latest scan yesterday revealed that her cancer is back. Last October she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She never told us what stage it was, but when the doctor said she should go straight to chemo without considering surgery to remove her ovaries, we figured it wasn't good. The cancer was throughout her body, but by May the chemo seemed to have worked. So here we are again, just before Thanksgiving and it's like deja vu. If anyone has any extra prayers or pixie dust laying around we could use a little. We'll be heading out tomorrow to see the family. Hopefully we can all stay positive through this latest hurdle.

my thoughts and prayers arew with you and your family..... I wish 2010 would be over soon... There are too many things going on in my family right now.... I am recovering from Fistula surgery for when dialysis is needed while I am on the list for a second kidney transplant... Mine lasted almost 21 years....

On top of that my uncle was in a serious car accident last night not even 3 blocks from my house.... A truck rear ended him at 50 miles an hour. He is home and doing okay for now....

Then my other uncle called and told me that my aunt has suffered two strokes and is in a rehab... She was doing really good and recovering from a Brain tumor.....

So in the end I am sending out as much pixie dust that I can find......
God bless everyone and have a safe thanksgiving.....

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

WorldWacky and Glampire31: prayers sent. Hang in there, and I hope the positive shines brighter than everything else this Thanksgiving.

I just found out yesterday that a dear friend was experiencing abdominal pain over the weekend. After workups on Monday, the docs have diagnosed her with stage 3 ovarian cancer. She went in to surgery today. Her name is Susan and she is about 40 years old with two young children. Please offer up prayers and positive thoughts for Susan and her family too.

Upcoming Trips: Oct '13 (AKV), Jan '14 (BCV)
Past Trips: Apr '12 (VGC - 1st DLR Trip!), Jan '12 (BLT), Aug '11 (AKV), Dec '10 (PCC 2.0 & AKV), Aug '10 (BCV), Feb '10 (FW Cabin, AKV, BLT, SSR), Oct '09 (BWV, BLT, AKV Concierge), Dec '08 (ASMu & AKL), Sep '06 (offsite), Oct '00 (CR), June '01 (AKL), June '79 (CR)

Friggin cancer! I lost a best friend in April to colorectal cancer and my father was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer (not sure of the original site) in May. So I get it But in any case, I just wanted to say that although it's hard to get news like this during the holidays, there is a silver lining in that. While it is hard to feel "thankful" with this kind of news, you can at least be thankful that the holidays have brought friends/family together to lean on each other during such hard times.

I hope that everyone is able to enjoy the holidays in the best way possible.
