Pondering over 2010

Hello my family,

Trouble is in town, ie moi. :-) Just thinking over the last year, we have had so many losses from Louanne, Donna, Eric, John, and many more. I am thankful I got to know them online, especially Donna, she was like my big sister, but she helped me open up more to my family online. And now I have big sisters, in Lisa, Chris, Kathy, Gail, Diane, Jennie, KathiM,Brooks and yes your like a big bro not sis, list is endless. Our colon family members who have gone, have left us with the feeling over their loss, but we have been more richer for knowing them.

Thinking of my bro craig, I am so grateful to your angel who encouraged and paid for your treatment. I'm thankful to my bro for getting the treatment and kicking cancer again!!

Winter Marie, thinking of when you came to the board and how you were given just a few months. But your strong will and determination and faith kept you going, and I'm so happy at the point where you are today.

Those who have had relapses, Craig, Jennie, Buzz, Kerry etc. You are all amazing like everyone else on this board.

Those still fighting, Lisa, Phil, Cheryl, John etc, I don't know how you do it, but you do. You are fighters like everyone else on here, but you teach us that you can carry on with life, actually you have to, otherwise you can't live.

And to our new members, Pepe, Lori, Gail etc, we may have lost valuable members, but we have gained a lot more in you all.

Ok enough ponderings.

Hugs and love to you all.
Sonia who had a cea test done yesterday and would appreciate your good wishes and prayers that it comes out ok, especially as I have had a rotten few weeks with my stomach. God and you all have given me so much strength to go out and get this test done, heck to get my ct and mri scan done over the last year. So each and everyone one of you, those who are like regular monitors, NanaB, John23 etc thank you. And if I forgot anyone I'm sorry, you know I love you all.

Hi Sonia,

What a nice, thoughtful post! I would be honoured to be your "big sister/aunt" if there is room in the family tree.

I have been meaning to tell you how lovely your new avatar is!

Good luck with the CEA.

I hope my cea will be fine. As you and others know I was a wreck when I came to this board (still am some would say lol). But you and everyone else have shown me the way, to try and be strong and cope with all that I have been/or am still going through.
Can't wait to see you next year, love you and all my semi colon family loads.

I remembered I forgot you and Marie, you both who are two of the biggest contributors to our online family. Hugggss please forgive me. And you are already in the family tree Anne, you pick the role of sister or aunt. :-))))

And thank you for the compliments for the avatar, and for the good luck for my cea.

You are a star, along with everyone else on this board. :-))) You all burn so brightly when I can't sleep at night, ie when I check the forum, thank you for that.

I know I havent been on here in a while, been so busy with work and the move, but I too have been thinking about everyone here, as I always do. I miss everyone we lost this year, its so sad. I thank GOD everyday for this board and the wonderful people on it, truly some amazing people!

I think back to when I first came on here, amazing the things that have happened to so many, amazing stories of sadness and survival, this board is really inspirational to me and many others I am sure!

I just want everyone to know how thankful I am and how better my life is for having known all of you!

Hi Sonia,

What a nice sentiment you have written- I thank God for the people on this board & I thank God for YOU! It still amazes me how we can now have this relationship with each other halfway around the world! Yes, I'll be praying for you. :)

Hugs to you,

Lisa

Hehe that sounds threatening. You my dear friend, what can I say the chats we have had over the phone have been a God send. And you feeling that something was wrong with me back in June on the day I took an o/d, you are, lol I don't have to say it, you know. We have a unique and special friendship (and before I get into trouble, I have that with everyone else, but in different ways!). We have to arrange to talk on the phone soon. x Thank you for all you have done for me over this year.

Hugsssssssss

You have been through so much the past year yourself and have overcome many hurdles. You sound so much better now (hoping that you are feeling better too). Good luck with your upcoming results. Like your new picture too.
