Hello Dearhearts

First, I want to say that you all are so dear to me and so close to my heart, which is why I now start off with my "Hello Dearhearts".

Second, I really want you all to know that each and every comment or words of support you give, really mean so very much. I treasure each and every one of you.

So, thank you for sticking with me. The journey so far has been a real challenge at times. And just getting through the tough patches has been easier with you all there supporting me. I know that this forum is mostly about our struggles with lymphoma, but really it's so much more. Sometimes it feels like all I have is hubby and you, sometimes my girls and my friends seem to fade away , maybe out of fear I just don't know. But you all are always here for me. In my good times and in the really scary bad times, you have stuck with me. Thank you...

My journey has led me down some unexpected paths and the fear that goes along with the unknown can be overwhelming at times. You all make the fear a little less scary.

Thank you so very much for all that you give to me. I hope that I can return the support to you. I know that I have not been as available as I would like to be, but hopefully that will change soon.

Life can throw us some curve balls, but we must contine to play. I know that I have much more ahead of me, but I also know that I will get through with all of you.

So, thank you thank you for just being you, the wonderful people that you are.
I just wanted to tell you what you all mean to me and how very special you are.

Thank you for being a part of my life,
Love, Lisha

    As Jim said- your note to all of us was lovely and heartfelt and we appreciate it. But not necessary.

    You know yourself, our reward will be you feeling better! Just as you support all of us.

    Good times and bad. This is quite a group- I agree with you. We are all blessed to have this forum and each other.

    I was just talking with someone about this today. Others try to get it, but they just can't. We are all walking in the same (or similar) shoes. So we get it.

    Bless you Lisha. Praying for an uneventful week for you!

    Thanks LIsha
    Lisha, that so sweet but not necessary :).

    I just want you to get better and I'm struggling to find a
    cheerleading, japanese, dog oriented "happy dance" video for you!
    You know if there is one, I'll find it ;).

    I think you're sounding better - are you starting to feel a little better?

    I sure hope so.

    Hugs always,

    Hi Lisha,
    I was going to write a comment on your "Sunday night up-date", but saw this post and decided to just write once...(so don't think I ignored your other one) :) I'm so sorry you ended up in the ER Saturday night...what the heck???? My heart just aches for you and I soooo wish for you to feel better! As others have already's not necessary to thank us...we are family here, and we do what we do because we care. You have always been here for all of us through our troubles, and we will always be here for you. I remember in the fall of 2010 there were 4 or 5 of us doing chemo and we all reached out to each other. That was a hell of a year for you, and through it all you still took time to check on all of us. I thank "YOU", dear Lisha for being such a kind loving friend to all of us! I sure hope you feel better by Friday and will make it to the game. Rest and eat, and stay off the stairs! :) I hope your able to slip out to your beautiful yard for some warm sunshine. We are having terrible air quality due to all of the fires around us. I can't even see the foot hills from all of the smoke hanging over the valley. Poor Lizzy is getting restless being cooped up inside. Well sweetie...I am pooped from a full day of play and baby games, so I will say "good night". I pray for a peaceful week for you! Love you...Sue

    Hi Lisha,

    I'm new around here, so I know you're not writing to me, but I definitely relate to your message here. I understand what you mean about friendships crumbling, but new ones are also being forged. Every once and a while, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and just have to stop and pen a letter just like this one.

    Best of luck on your journey :)
