Thank you for the post here but hey if we go through all we do in this cancer journey and don't pass along what we have learned and experienced from it all then what was the point, right? My pleasure meeting you the other day and glad you posted because when you left so quickly I thought perhaps something was wrong. Glad to hear it was technical.

I was going to tell you before you left though that I found great comfort in a site online that belongs to The Sisters of Providence all centered around a saint who founded it by the name of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. I saw a show on tv a few years back about a guy in the states who had alot of eye trouble and he stumbled on this Sister (not a Saint yet at that point but known for her miracles) and he was led to read up on her and it changed his life, his sight was restored - a true miracle. I, like him, was fascinated by the story of this nun from abroad, and emailed the Sisters for a prayer to be said for myself and from that day on my life has really taken a positive spin - can't explain it but it seems when this saint comes into your life things happen, and fast. I am by no means a religious person but do believe in God and the basics but if you had told me I would be passing the word along about a Saint in the next few years my friends would have laughed. This Saint is truly something special.

Of course no one always gets exactly what they pray for all the time but you can be sure you will get what you truly need even if it's not what you expect. You can send away to The Sisters for prayer cards and relic cards - the relic cards are very cool as they have a bit of linen that touched the Saint at one point. Just thought I would pass that along to you. For me it was and is a great source of strength.

Take care and hope to see you again soon. Hang in there, you didn't go through all you did with your hubby for nothing. There is a plan for you. Hugs, Blueroses.

Wow how profound that is, I've been searching the medical world for answers and do talk to God, my form of prayer, but I think I haven't done enough of the soul searching. I'm definitely going to put in a prayer request for healing because I can't take the thought of him going through more treatments, pain and suffering. The depression alone is enough to do anyone in from the Interferon.

It was nice meeting you too and I look forward to chatting with you. Thanks for the hope.

You will find many people who will help you through on this site. I am glad you are looking into The Sisters of Providence and Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, let me know how it all goes after you submit your prayer request. Sometimes, like I said before, we don't always get exactly what we ask for but I know that we do get what we need. Blessings and nice talking to you too. Blueroses.
