I just wanted to update y'all on Dawne. She is hanging in there. She has chemo every other Monday. It is rough on her but she is fighting hard. Her faith holds her strong. She will be having a PET scan on the 30th so please keep her in your prayers. Her younger sister (early 30's) was dx about 6 wks ago with stage 3 cervical cancer. It has been hard on Dawne because her sister lives in another state,she would love to be with her. She will have chemo and rads starting the 22nd, please keep her in your prayers too.

Some of you had ask about my Mom, broke her hip mid Nov. She has been home a couple of weeks and is doing really well. She has a PT come twice a week and is getting around wonderfully for her 82 yrs!!

Thank you all for keeping Dawne in your thoughts and prayers, she thinks of all of you often and keeps you in her prayers. Sorry it has taken me so long to update. I will try to do better (((hugs))) God Bless

thank you so much for the update! A couple years ago, we talked about each of us having a 'buddy' who would be able to keep the rest of us updated when we weren't  posting. 

It seems, though, that we have made personal connections - like you and Dawne - so, thankfully we can be aware of our sisters journeys.

I am sorry to hear about Dawne's sister. I am sure it is really hard for Dawne to deal with along with everything else. I will keep them both in my thoughts and send positive energy their way.

Hugs,

Thank  you so much for letting us know how she is doing. From her picture and words, she seems like such a kind soul who has her soulmate and love of her life standing by her side.

I hope she can beat this thing. I always like her posts.

Dawne has been on my mind lately, I'm glad to hear she is hanging in there.  Chemo for IBC can be pretty harsh, like all of them .  Do you know which ones she's on?  I will be hoping and praying for the best for Dawne on the 20th.  Sending prayers for her sister too.  My MIL was in treatment for BC while I was...it was really hard on my husband.

I'm also happy to hear your Mom is doing so well.  Nice to have the PT come to her!

Thank you for the update!

Hugs,

Linda

I am reminded once again what a special group of ladies (and some guys) are on this site. I do not get on as often as I should but, I think of you all often. Dawne and I did make an instant connection when we met. I am glad we live close enough to see each other some. We are planning to meet for dinner on the 25th. I go for labs and the hospital we both use is a good halfway point so we meet up in town :o) Dawne is a very special person. Cinnamonsmile you are right her husband is her rock!! He is a great guy and is totally commited to being there for Dawne! Linda, Dawne is on Navelbine.She will be having a trt on Monday. Thank you all for the prayers and kind thoughts for Dawne and her sister. I will let you know when I can on Dawnes PET, it is the 30th.

Thank you all for the prayers and kindness for my Mom also. I would appreciate some prayers for myself. I have a torn mensicus in my left knee so I am hobbling, I see the ortho Dr on the 29th. This is minor compared to what so many are dealing with but I would appreciate  it. God Bless you all!!

How is your knee?  Are you going to have surgery.

 

Were you able to have dinner with Dawne?  We would love to hear about it.

 

xoxo,

Jean

Thank you for asking Jean. Dawne and I did not get to meet for dinner Frown we had a conflict with plans at the last minute. I got a cortisone shot in my knee for now. I am hoping if I have to have surgery it can wait till summer. The shot is helping so thats good! God Bless
