    I wish I could offer you some words of comfort. I will say that I don't believe God gives you cancer. We live in a fallen world and cancer is one of the things we must deal with. Phillip Yancey has written a book called "Where is God when it hurts?" and I found it to be very helpful and comforting without being preachy or giving you any church-y Sunday school answers. He is very straight forward and doesn't minimize suffering or pain.

    I hope you can use your days off from work to build up your strength and start feeling better - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

    Bunnie, Cancer is such an insidious disease. We aren't meant to fight so hard and yet that's what you are doing. I remrember you posted hard to slow down and it touched me. I'm sure that you are doing the right thing by listening to your body. What you did took great courage! Please mend, find pleasure, & joy. Sandy

    Hey there Bunnie~
    I know that is a very hard decision to make. I made that decision last year. Worked when I could.
    It is the right decision, as hard as it is! Overall you will be happy that you did this.
    Take care and I will write you again.

    You do what you have do to kick cancer's butt

    With all you are going through I think that was the best decision you could have made. Now you can concentrate on getting well. It's difficult to do it all, and us type A personalities have trouble giving it up. Get well, and then go back, they will be glad to see you!

    Bunnie, you have been in my prayers from previous post. You have a beautiful heart and the strength of a lion! So many days I wanted to just give up and didn't know how.... keep fighting one day at a time. Praise God IN your situation not For it and he will Bless you ten fold. You are not alone, you are not! We are here and the Lord will carry you through and when the molding processing is done you are gonna be one strong role model for sure!
    Love and prayers, Julia
