    Get better soon

    This crazy cancer...one day feeling good the next like crap.  When I feel bad I just jump in bed and try to ride it out.  Pray the bad feeling doesn't last very long.  Jeff

    Thanks for checking in with us.

    I found when I had the big surgeries it took several weeks to start to feel a little more normal, and it sounds like you've had a very big one.  Just rest, and stay hydrated, and give yourself plenty of time to heal.  Big (gentle) hugs~Ann Alexandria

    Thanks for checking in with

    Thanks for checking in with us. I had a similar experience on my last surgery. They ended up taking all of my right lobe part of my left lobe and part of my diaphram but I got through it. You have youth on your side which is a big asset although I am sorry you have to deal with this at such a young age.

    Great Thanks

    Great thanks to all of you for your support. I think one the reasons my pain gets so bad is onmy good days I try to do wayyy too much cause in the hospital they say " the more u do the faster u recover,"but apparently that's not true for after u get home, just when you wake up from surgery. So often I feel like I'm being punished but why soo much??? There has been so much bad in my life that it really outweighs the good and seems to have always had.                                                  But anyways I need some suggestions on a tattoo about hope. But not "Keeping the Hope" because I already have "Keeping the Faith." So some suggestions would be great since I just can't seem to find anything that really stands out to me and I'm getting ready to get my next one that says "Never give up." But I want to add either "Fight Like Hell" or Fight Like a Girl." I was leaning more towards fight like a girl because they say colon cancer is more common in men than in women and definetly in someone of my age. Shall we take votes for anyone that wants to have a say? Vote 1 for "Fight Like Hell" and vote 2 for "Fight Like A Girl. Okay thanks guys! I should be in touch more often...

    I think it's a very good sign that you're thinking about tattoos. You must be feeling better and ready to get on with life. I have no ideas but I will put some thought into it.

    Hope Rises

    Just an idea. I'm not good at this kind of stuff.

    I visualize a rising sun with Hope Rising in script below. 

    I too think its a good thing that you are thinking ahead. You are obviously a strong woman.

    I know what its like having crappy time in life. In fact, when the Oncologist told me I had stage 3, at first I was shocked then I was angry. I had an awful childhood, I mean horrific for a child (as many do). I told God that it was unfair that I had such a terrible choldhood, and that I deserved to go out of this life happy. 

    Chin up and muster on. We're with you every step of the way.

    What about "Never say die".

    What about "Never say die". It is probobly too many words but what I like to say is "What doesnt kill me will only make me stronger". This is referring to the fact that I have had cancer 3 times and 3 times it did NOT kill me and I am stronger after each time.

    Wishing you comfort during

    Wishing you comfort during your recovery.  It sounds like you are up and moving which is great! But, over doing it will only set you back...that I have learned.  As for your new tattoo ... what do you think of the song lyrics "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"?  Maybe even putting its musical notes as the tattoo on a staff .... sorta would be cool ... with the cancer ribbon maybe?

    Hope you are feeling better soon!!
