Sorry I have not written much I have been in the hosptial since Monday I had my sister bring down my laptop so I could get online and let you ladies know what is going on. Last Sunday my leg swelled up three times bigger than my right leg so on Monday my mom made me go to the hospital and they admited me that day. They found out that a lymnod had grown to an inch and a half and was blocking the blood flow to my leg so that my leg swelled up and I have some swellin in my stomach again. I am up to 408 pounds since I started chemo I was down to 334 lbs when this all stated the steroids and now my blood suger is at 254 in the evening and 297 in the am I had insolin first time ever in my life. My doctor is not longer talking about me making it five years it feel feelings like he is giving up hope because the cancer is spreading so fast this has torn my heart apart. I have spent days crying and I am watching the tear my mom heart apart I dont know how my more I can take yet I dont want to stop fighting please pray for me.

Love, Hugs, and Prayers
Anne

Anne, you and your family have been through so much! It really blows my mind...I am such a cry-baby! I have had it soooo easy and still I whine over a blood draw, a late appointment, a rude medical person. I really admire your courage. You have suffered and still you fight. Please hold on, we need you to light the way for us. God bless you and yours, prayers going up for all. Best, debrajo

My legs and feet, mainly my right foot and ankle swelled up during chemo...at first they thought it was a blood clot. Did an ultrasound and no clot then they realized it was lymphedema. I'm done with chemo(just have avastin maint.) but I have trouble walking. You'll be ok stay strong.
