Hello Dearhearts

I am missing you all so much. Lots of trouble with the focus of my vision. I assume it's the many many drugs they have me on. It does make it hard to type and to read. But I have been trying to read a little.
I am awaiting another ct scan, hopefully for this week. The pain is beyond anything I have ever experienced, including having babies naturally!
I feel so worn down by constant pain, this is taking a toll on me in a big way.
I could use a little more of your incredible support.
I'll finish this post in a few minutes. I need to lie down for a bit.
I don't know about saving this to finish later, so I will just start another as part two.

Hang in there with me
Lisha

Hi Jim

Took a short nap, which never really helps much. But snyway I am glad to attempt to be back in the group.
I am just having such a hard time with the pain and all. It seems like yesterday life was easier, oh, wait, it was...
I could sure use some encouragement. Reading has become so difficult. makes me feel helpless. Yuck.

Keep smil****, Jim
Lisha

Even a brief greeting, such as you send here, is great news.

I slept 17 or more hours a day on chemo, and could just barely walk to my car on infusion day, so I understand.

At 56, I am developing Parkinson's or a related neurological problem, so everyone try to tolerate my typing as well. We are praying for you Lisha !

Thanks Max

You are such a great member of the group.I can't type much right now, my eyes are crossing.
In the future when I have less pain and less everything else, I would love to see if I could offer any practical advise about your parkinsons or parkinsons like. My mother had Parkinson's for many years.
Hang in there Max.

Hi Lisha,
So glad to see you post a little something to the group. I know you are in a lot of pain, but in time, and if you REST, it will ease up and you will start to feel better. I'm busy as heck trying to get everything ready to leave on vacation Sat morning. Had Lizzy all week which made getting anything accomplished pretty hard. As fast as I'd pack something she would go behind and pull it out...my little helper..ha! Daddy picked her up at noon today, so maybe now I can make some head way. You have my cell# and I'll have my lap top with me, so I'll be available for whatever you need. We will be home on the 19th. Hang in there my friend...wish I could pack you up and take you with me to the cottage!
Love you...Sue

Lisha,
I am having problems posting lately. I type a nice long post and it will not post. That is frustrating so I will just say glad to see you posted to give us a update. Hope you feel a whole lot better. John

Cobra,

There is "slow" software, and then there is this stuff here. ACS needs to seriously redo this whole site.

Hi Dear Lisha,
I'm sorry that didn't post to you sooner but had treatment today and wasn't feeling to good, but nothing compared to your pain I'm positive about that. Thank you for posting, I know that its really hard right now and I don't want you to go over board. You need to rest and then rest somemore. Don't worry about posting right now, we all understand that you're in pain. Sending you lots of love and many, many HUGS. PRAYING FOR YOU Dear Lisha

Sincerely,
Liz

Dearest Lisha,

Evenually everything comes to an end. The bad and the good. I wish it were only
the bad coming to an end. Hang on. I know it's not easy suffering with pain
everyday. I can't imagine. It makes me thankful when I was operated on in Sept 2009,
I was unconscious for 1 week in ICU.

If only all of us could take the slightest bit of pain away from you, we would.
Meanwhile, please remember this will end. As you know by now, sleep as much as you
can.

We love you and we are with you all the way. Prayer, thoughts, and blessings to you.

Maggie
