Thanks to a sleepless night, I was able to catch up on the last 3 wks of posts. First, I'd like to say Thank-You to those of you who expressed support, prayers, and love concerning my husband's recent surgery. You helped more than you'll ever know. It has been a very difficult few wks, but I know it will get better.
To Stacy, once again, you are a very special person indeed. To Kanga, I was so happy to read news of your latest results! Way to go!!!! To Grandma047, Judy, I'm keeping you in my prayers for your upcoming surgery, which I'm sure you're worried about but I know the outcome will be successful. To Monika (who I hope will have an incredibly wonderful vacation...how exciting!) and SallyJo, I feel a connection to you both with your experiences. I don't believe there is a person alive who is untouched by the cruelties of this awful desease. Sometimes it's hard for me to understand that in this modern day of fantastic technology, so much in the world of medicine still seems to be in the dark ages. It's hard to understand how a tumor can be so hard to detect; with only a PET pointing to an area and only after CEA can rise for 1 1/2 yrs. CT's, MRI's, Ultrasound's, Laparoscopy, can't pick up tumors sooner, and yet PET is unspecific. Meanwhile CEA goes up to 206!!
I can only hope and pray that his surgery was in time. I love that word....T I M E........so precious....I realize my words are flowing, so I'll break up my thoughts into separate posts. My husband isn't ready to start typing here yet, but I hope he will soon. I'm back, and I continue to pray for all of you, each and every day. Be Well!
