hello all. hope this new year brings all of us more joy, well i have 11 tumors between my lungs. the surgeon can get to them all and he sd that there is a slim chance that this will help but the chance of it returning is high. we decided to take the chance. i am 35 and in otherwise good health so why not. i will be getting a pet on the 13 of jan to see if anything anywhere else if ther is no surgery. we dont think so though. i will be at st marys in minnesota my surg dates r jan 14 and 18 not expected to return home until the 27 or 28. please pray for finances and that comfort and peace to all who love and care for me as they all once again will have to watch and wait as i go thourgh this again. i am prepred though. i will have a double thorcotomy. i hope this will be the end of this but that lies in the Lords mercy. thank you all for your words of encouragement and thoughts and prayers. take care all of you. i will be keeping in touch.

Nettie -

I'll be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. You are very strong and pragmatic - that's the right attitude. Hang tough. Remember, God won't throw anything at you that you and he can't take on together.

I have been thinking of you... so far so good. You have been in my thoughts and prayers, and will remain there.

I'm glad to hear there is a chance it will help... all you need is a chance.

Hope you have time to enjoy and smile. Keep us posted along the way. My heart goes out to you. I didn't have a double, buy my thoracotomy was pretty easy compared to my APR. HOpe yours goes without any problems. Wishing you an easy recovery and a 100% cure. If Lance A. could do it, so can we!!

I'm so glad they are going to operate nettie. I know it's not easy, but I think being surgically aggressive is the way to go. I know jana had a spot removed and I had two thoracotomies over the past 4 months and they removed 20 tumors! Hang in there. We are all here for you... You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope all goes well and wishing you a speedy recovery.

Lots of love,

HI Nettie,

You, and each and everyone else on this board, survivors and caregivers alike, are in my prayers each and every night and that wont stop anytime soon.

You definitely sound like you are remaining positive and looking beyond this which I think is the key to all of us overcoming whatever we have to face. We will always be here for you giving you extra strengh so come back to the board often and take what we have to give you.

All the best, always,

Hi Nettie,
Hang in there baby girl. It is good that you are having the surgery. Just as there is a chance those tumors will come back, so is there the chance that they won't! I prefer the latter take on it. I will be praying my heart out for you. I think of you often and I wish comfort and peace you and your family throughout this ordeal.
Love and Hugs and a Superman Cape,
