hello all. my granny passed away on sat morning. she was a fighter and at 80 yrs old she took some pain with little complaing. i was blessed to take care of her even at 2 am on fri but i knew she was slipping away. i have taken the next 2 treatments off as i am exhausted and just need a break. i am still waiting on scans myself to see what progress has been made. i loved taking care of my granny through the good and bad and as many tears as have fallen from my eyes i know she is at peace with Lord Jesus and a little piece of her will live in the family. I hope you all had a happy thanksgiving. you all have a great day. thanx for the support.

    Nettie, I am so sorry for your loss. Sounds like both of you were so lucky to care so much for each other.

    Take a break from your treatments, and allow yourself to begin to heal. May your next results be wonderful and uplifting.

    YOu remain in my thoughts. Stay well. jana

    Nettie,

    May you find peace as well. Reading your posts about taking care of you grandmother were so inspiring. You are/were going through such a hard time as well and you were still able to find the time to take care of your grandmother. You're a hero.

    With Sympathy, Patricia

    Hello Nettie: I am sorry to hear of your Grannie's passing-
    " and He will raise her up on eagles' wings, and bear her on the breath of dawn, make her shine like the sun and hold her in the palm of His hand"...
    Prayers for peace to you- and for your own health Nettie.

    Dear Nettie,
    I am sorry for your loss. Your grandmother was blessed to have you to care for her -- as you were blessed to have her in your life. Take care of yourself. Best wishes.

    Dear Nettie,

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your grandmother. Your being her caretaker shows what a caring and giving person you are. I know it was comforting to her to know that she was so loved by you. Please try and focus on you these next two weeks and allow your body to rest and recoup.

    I am praying for scans that show much improvement in your condition.

    Love,

    Kay
