Hello my family,

Ok will try not to make an essay out of this, but if that happens I apologise. It's been months since I gave a proper update on me, last everyone heard those who aren't on facebook is that they found cysts on my liver. Doctor got the report faxed over she said I have two small cysts, hospital said I'm clear. I didn't post this news on here, because we had lost so many good people and I felt guilty.

Ok yesterday I posted about a girl called Melissa Waller (www.themelissawaller.com) on facebook she had passed away on the 25th Nov. She was only 32 (two years younger then me), and fought a hard battle against stage four lung cancer, I followed her blog from the start and we both got diagnosed in Feb 09. Anyway her passing really upset me.

Also since the soon to be ex husband finally lodged the divorce papers on the 5th Oct, I seem to have gone downhill. Mentally getting better again, just physically now. Suffering from stomach viruses, IBS, anal fissures. I had an examination, doctor could see I had a fissure but nothing else untoward. I still have to mention it to my cancer nurse on the 13th Dec. So having those symptoms have been playing on my mind, has the cancer returned? But not eating properly since the 5th Oct, then starting to eat again, then eating Junk, not drinking enough water, that does not help.

Anyway just thought I would let everyone know where I am at.

Hugs
sonia

    Hi Sonia
    Sorry to hear that you have had some trying times both physically and emotionally.

    It does seem to come in waves some times.

    You do need to take care of yourself...eating right...staying hydrated...but of course you know these things.

    It is often hard to get the mind in gear when things are pressing, but that is one thing we all have to do. Don't look too hard at what is lost, or to far ahead to what might be. Just deal with today, put your smile in your heart even if you can't put it on your face, and be determined to get the best of the day that you can.

    Glad you posted. Don't ever delay posting because of what is going on with others. If you need us, we are here. There are enough of us to go around.

    Hugs

    Those fissures are
    Those fissures are particularly nasty - don't heal until chemo is done, and certainly had me curled up in agony. That, combined with everything else on a nasty journey; I'm sorry you are going through so much.

    Thinking of you,
    Alice

    Update
    Thanks so much for the update and that you are still clear. Sorry to hear about your friend. That is so very hard to take. Don't let your ex take you down. It's hard to keep positive with all that you have been going through, but it would be best for you.

    Good luck with your upcoming appointment.

    Don't stay away because of your news good or bad. You are always a part of this board.

    Hello!
    Hi, Sonia.

    I do keep up with you on facebook, and you're such a godsend to me there. *smiles*

    Sorry about all this going on, and I hope you will soon find a way to eat better and take care of yourself. In my humble opinion, your ex is missing out on a wonderful wife, so please don't let his actions deprive you of your good health. Eat the good stuff and drink plenty of water, okay?

    Love you, girl. You're so sweet!

    *hugs*

    Hey Sonia
    If that soon-to-be-EX does not realize what he is losing then that is just too bad sooo sad for him. We all know what a terrific person you are...KNOW THAT..and believe it. You should never refrain from posting about anything. All your ups and downs belong with this family and no matter what else is going on in here.... YOU are equally as important. If you ever want to talk on the phone please PM me for my number.... I have walked that walk...with the EX-crap..2 times.... so I have some been there done that experience and KNOW what you are feeling. It's enough to have to go thru the health issues without having other issues to top it off. You take care.

    No more apologies!
    Hi Sonia,

    Listen... no more apologizing or waiting to post what's on your mind, okay??
    We love you here and never want you to think that just because "others are going through more", that you can't post your own things going on- really! Hugs to you!!!!
    YOU are very important and don't let anyone ever get you to believe otherwise!!
    I'm sorry for the hard times you're going through and know it's scary, so we don't want you to be going through it all alone. :)
    Sorry I haven't checked in with you too much lately- I will try to be better about that!
    I am thinking of you and praying for you right now!
    It would be nice to talk again in person soon- hopefully that can happen sometime soon again.
    You hang in there & don't hesitate to send me a PM or private FB msg anytime, ok?

    Hugs,
    Lisa :)
