I am so sad. My heart breaks for Wendy's family. This was so unexpected. When I saw the word "final" in the above post, I had this overwhelming feeling and knew. I cannot understand this. She did so well following surgery and if anyone was still full of fight, it was Wendy!

I plan to send my heartfelt condolences to her husband. Following that, I won't be round for a while. It's too much for me to handle right now. We've lost two very dear and much admired sister's in such a short span of time. Tiger's passing was hard but Wendy's passing is shocking. She was a wonderful person and was just with us, sharing her strength and admirable spirit...and now she's not.

I love all of you very much. I care about all of you very much and I am so grateful to all you've shared with me over the past 7 or 8 months. We've come to know one another, very well in some cases, but it's just too much. You all mean so much and I can't bear the thought of losing anyone else. Perhaps this places me in the light of being weak or selfish? I don't know. Simply that I'm overwhelmed at the moment and need time to internalize all this and find my way.

I know that all of you share the sadness and please know that my thoughts are with you in this difficult time for us all.

Love, light and laughter,
Inkblot

I share your feelings and have always found this site to be of comfort and support. Tiger and Wendy are now gone and I feel like I have been in a fantasy world where everybody who has posted will live happily ever after but I know that is not realistic and my own journey has been like a dream and the passing of these two very courageous ladies has made me open my eyes and take my cancer more seriously. God Bless you and know that your feeling are not selfish they are human.
love,
LaVerne

Dear Friends,

I am going to send a note to Wendy's husband - he as kind as she was to take the time for this update when his heart must be breaking. I am typing through my tears.

She seemed so coherent when updating us on her condition. In my mind is the thought that better to do nothing and have a few more weeks that way. Anyone else have thoughts. Another of mine, was it poor nursing care AFTER successful surgery. Two people dies at Mt. Sinai in New York in liver transplants because of this - poor followup after surgery.

But Wendy had some very serious problems and was so brave. I see my oncologist today.

Love to you all,
Jean
