Mary Ann is home

Welcome Home Mary Ann.  She came home the end of last week.  I talked with her today.  She is getting stronger each day.  She went to her primary care today and he stopped her diuretic.  She said the swelling is better.  She goes to the onocologist next week.  She is fearful of the news she will receive.  Let's pray she gets a new plan to attack and contain "Chester, Mary Ann's name for her cancer".

Mary Ann is not up to posting yet, but said it was okay for me to tell you all that she is at home now.  I know how we worry when we don't hear from or about our "special family" we have on this site. 

Rudy is not working right now, so he is there for support and help.  Mary Ann said they went to the beach yesterday and had a good day.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.  I know Mary Ann will appreciate all your kind words of encouragement when she is up to posting again.

So glad to hear you are home!  It makes us feel so much better just to be in our own bed with our own things around us!  You will get better now.  Thanks Ro for letting us know the latest!  Best, debrajo

I can't tell you how delighted I was to see Ro's message this morning.  You must feel so much better to be able to go outside again and to be home with all your things around you.  I'm glad you live someplace warm.  It's been really frigid here but I bundle up  nearly every day and dedicate that time to thinking about you.

 

Ro, thankyou so much for keeping us in Mary Ann's loop.  You are a good friend.

The previous post should read "bundle up and walk".

I hope this site gets fixed soon.  It's been tempormental and often refuses to let me correct typos and sometimes I cant

Ro, thank you for keeping us informed on Mary Ann.   We will definitely keep her in our prayers.   Give her our wishes.  I am glad she got to go to the beach!   Surf and sand can really lift ones' spirit.

By the way, how are you doing Ro?   I hope you are doing well.

My eyes kind of welled up there for a little bit...

Mary Ann - it is so wonderful to hear that you are home!  Bless Rudy as well, for keeping us informed and most importantly, for being there at the hospital for you.

I am so happy that you and Rudy got to the beach for a short time yesterday - hope the breeze off the water blew Chester away forever!

Home at last!!!!! Hoping that you will rapidly gain back your strength in your own environment and be able to restore your health. Take it one step at a time and hopefully there will be more treatment options to stop Chester in his tracks. Hugs. Susan

Happy to hear you were able to come home.  I know it must have been difficult to be in the hospital that long.  I know that must have felt good to go to the beach & feel the breeze and sun on your face.  You take care & will keep you in my thoughts & prayers for your appt. next week.

I'm just back from holiday and catching up with threads.  Have been hoping and praying that Mary Ann would be home.  Such good news that she's well enough to be back where she belongs and where she can regain her strength.  Chester really shouldn't have picked a fight with such a strong lady - he is bound to come off worst once a new treatment plan is forged.

Mary Ann - when you're feeling strong enough to read these posts, you will realise how many people are out here batting for your team and willing you back to health every day.  You are an amazing lady!

Hi Mary Ann!

I have been following Ro's posts regarding your recent struggles (what a great friend!) and am overjoyed to hear you are finally home.

Hope all is going well...

I wanted to let you know that despite you being out of commission I have gained so much knowledge from your posts. I read alot of what you had written about what you learned in your food classes and it has been very helpful to me in learning about what I need to get off in the right direction nutrition=wise.

Take care. I'll be thinking of you.

She is getting stronger, but not bouncing back as quick as she had hoped.  She has a new plan, and she thought she would be up to posting soon.  She appreciates all your thoughts and prayers.  Just wanted to let you know she should be returning soon.  Please keep her in your prayers.

hope you are all having a good weekend.  In peace and caring.

Thank you for posting, Mary Ann is in my thoughts and prayers.  Glad to hear she has a plan in place, and I look forward to her posts.

 

Best to you, and have a great weekend also... we still have plenty of snow on the ground here in New York, the blizzard dropped 30" of snow and the drifts were 4 to 5 feet.  Got plenty of exercise digging out!

When Mary Ann posts again, we're liable to crash the system welcoming her back!

I was hoping she would be posting something by now.  I was going to meet her on Sunday, but she has been having some GI issues.  They kicked in that day, so we were unable to get together.

she did e-mail me and said Tuesday went well.  I was hoping she would be posting her plans.  She was getting stronger, but not sure what the chemo will do to her.

Happy to hear she's up and moving about.  Yes you're a snowbird in FL and Mary Ann lives there...how fun!!!  We just got hit with 5-11" of snow in midwest (St Louis) so I'm dreaming of warm weather and the beach.  What part of FL are you located?

Did review the first posting and seems like she was to meet oncologist first part of Feb.  Assuming back on treatments and yes anxious to hear the plans.

Hugs,

Jan

I am in Treasure island.  We were going to visit friends in Bonita Springs and passing through where Mary Ann lives.  

Quincy IL got 8 inches of snow.  Glad we are not there.

looks like Rudy posted something tonight, but I could not find it.  

 Keep warm ;).

I did find his post asking about a clinical trial.

i was hoping he was sharing more information about Mary Ann.  I wish that topics would be closed for posting after a period of time.  When someoneousts on older posts a lot of the information is not pertinent any more.  The posts can be difficult to find, too.
