There has been too many stays with each one leaving me worst off than when I went in. this last visit my left leg has swelled up so bad I can hardly walk on it. I came home yesterday and today they delivered my wheel chair it was bitter sweet, I don't like the ideal of being in a wheel chair for when me when I use to walk a mile aday and now I can't walk 20 feet and yet now with the wheel chair I will be able to do more than just leaving to go to appointments only and then back home. I am planning a trip to the casion to play in a poker turnament I have not done that in 15 months since I got cancer and I am so looking forward to doing something that does not belong to cancer. I hope I am not in the hosptail anytime soon. This hospital stay also brought out the fact that I am going to have to go into a group home my parents can no longe take cae of me the wa I ned to be taken care of. I never wanted to go into a group home but I understand where they are comeing from they just can't do it anymore. I am wearing my mother down and she herself is on disability I can't keep doing this to her.I am not happy because I will be leaving the only home I have ever know. There has been to much change in the past ver months and I just don't know how I feel anymore.

Much
Love, Hugs, and Prayers
Anne

Anne I am so sorry you are going through all this... I don't know what else to say. I am at a total loss for words. It just is not fair.

You enjoy your trip to the casino... Have fun. Plan a second trip as well. Hell go there every weekend. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Anne, I am so upset to hear all this. All I can say is that I hope you kick ass at poker and buy yourself something fun and impractical. Keep up your spirit that is what matters now.

All the best,

Joyce

Not sure what that is..is it a nursing home or assisted living. I am sorry you have to go through this and I am sure your parents must be heart broken as well. Keep up the fight and never lose hope...Val

difficult to find words that can help you right now. Just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. The thought that you want to take a trip to the casino shows you still have spirit and that is what gets us through the tough times. I know what you mean when you say you want to do something that doesn't belong to cancer. I always tell my mom that I don't want to be "the cancer girl."

Stay strong, Anne, and I pray you will start to get some relief from all the issues you are confronting right now.

Love, Karen

Dearest Anne, you are under emotional over-load so it's no wonder you don't know how to feel! You are tired of feeling! Go to the Care Facility, make new friends, play poker til dawn, and tell cancer to kiss your A$$! This is Anne time.Have a ball and do whatever YOU want.! Have fun, my friend! Best, debrajo
