hello all. i got my ct results and meet with the onc on monday. it showed progressive disease. the tumor in my left lower lobe is twice the size it was just in may and i have one in my medial sternum and prgression in the nodes. i expected some growth but not like that. i write this with many tears flowing from my eyes not for me but for my children. i know the Lord will take care of them if this stupid disease takes my life but in the meantime i need the strength to deal with this new trial. and i am soooooo tired. i plan to fight this but for today i just need someone to lean on. thank you

Oh Nettie, I am so very very sorry for this step back, but please know that there is still a very good chance you can overcome this hurdle. I'm sure you onc will have a new game plan ready for you on Monday. I know it's so so hard right now but pleaaassseee try to stay positive. DOn't forget there are many people out there who have advanced disease and live a long life.

I will keep you in my prayers and please let us know how Monday's visit turns out.

Hello nettie,
Just wanted to send a big hug your way. I wish I could do more for you. I'm so sad that so many of us have to walk this hard road. I will be thinking of you and will include you in my prayers.
Stay strong!

I am so sorry for you and your family but have to recommend something to you. After all, what choice do you have? I hate to be that truthful, but I too face that same dilemna everyday. Unless you have been there, no one understands it like we do. You CAN help yourself today!!!! JUICE, JUICE, JUICE. Slow the ***** cells down. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you honey. As I told you before, I owe you.

Also know that you are in my daily thoughts and prayers. I admire you so. Hugs to you and remember internal fortitude is huge and you have that down pat.

((((((((((NETTIE))))))))))))

honey, let the tears flow. Cry them all out. Scream. Rant. Rave. Howl. Bawl.

Then pick yourself up and move to Plan B....whatever that may be. Of course I like scouty's idea. :-)

Please read this book:

A Cancer Battle Plan by Anne Frahm

It should give you hope....and Lord knows we can never have too much hope!

As a mother--especially of a little one like you have--I grieve with you. It just sucks. But they will give you strength to carry on and fight like the dickens. So will we. You are going through the second worse fearful happening that a mother can have -- the first thing being something awful happening to our babies.

You are in my daily prayers. If there is anything I can to help do not hesitate to email me.

peace, emily who is a mother first and cancer survivor second

Nettie, Hi.

It has all been said. You never left my thoughts and prayers. You are such a sweet and wonderful person-you feel like an old friend to me. Give yourself some time to adjust to this new situation. Talk to the onc. Stay strong. Enjoy every last moment, smile, and hug.

We are always here for you. Lean in any direction - we got you.

Keep us posted when you have time. jana

Just came back from yoga, you stayed with me the whole time. One of my instructors told me a yoga master once said, (paraphrased, of course)
"life can be measured in both time or breaths. If you measure with breaths, you can lengthen your life by simply taking longer, more soothing breaths." I try to do this every moment I think of it.
