Hello my guardian angels! Thank You so much for all your prayers, good energies, and good vibes. Note: I am still here, and hoping for miracles. The stupid cancer got to my brain, spine, still in my liver, so where it's hard for doctors to get too. These doctors really tried to their best, especially my being a mother of 4.

I didn't get to read all the posts on this board, as I've been taking it easy now, and waiting the hospice nurses to adjust my meds, Now, this doesnt mean I'm dying tomorrow, or next week or anything. They are really good people who just making me comfortable especially with pain. They are putting me on pain pump for me on Friday, for when the
time comes, I will not be in any pain. The hospice burse said it will make me more comfortable. So, I don;t know how morphine will be on me, hope it doesn,t make me oopy or anything.

I did read the prayer board though, and so touched by ALL of you! thank you, all my angels, as you have all touched and inspired. I came here so scared, and you all took that away for me, now not scared...well maybe a little heehee...more scared about my kids, have had some great talks with them. I love them so much, how they helped me though this.

My prayers and good vibes will be with you all as well. Even even when I go to where our creator is, I'll even make sure I stand where the door that Angel is standing at welcoming us back home Michelle :)

You all have been very special to me, and will try to get on here as much as possible, If I missed posts, I apologize, theres a load of posts to get tbrough. Now I'm off to have some ice cream, and note that I love each and everyone of you!

Hugs and Loveeeeeeeee,

It sure was heartwarming to read your post! As you know, we are all praying for you and here to support you with whatever you need! Maybe your kids could read some of the posts to you that you don't have the energy for! I know you are having a really hard time now, know that we are trying to help you with your burden; you have been a strong warrior and I don't doubt that you are continuing today! Stay strong and continue to do as you have been in this fight, what's best for you and your family!

You do realize, girlfriend, in the middle of all my running about, it was YOU who managed to get me to come back and post on the board... I was doing one of my long, rambling babbles, while you were over here posting. Go figure? And how the heck do you manage to say everything you want to say in a nice, concise, easy to read post, where I go babbling on for pages and I'm still not finished?

Girlfriend... you are going to be just fine. Your kids are amazing and they, too, are going to be just fine. And no matter which way your journey takes you, you are always going to have angels around you... the hospice guys/gals are totally amazing. Where DO they get their angel qualities from?? All of them? But because of this, you are not going to have to worry about how to juggle pain management on your own... that worry will have been taken away from you :)

Ok... I know your time online is going to be cut back, but what the heck... I think I'll go fertilize your farm and feed those chickens and send you a honeybee or two :)

So good to see your face and "hear" your voice:)

You really shook our world up - only you could do that.

Morphine can make you feel loopy if you take too much, LOL:)

One day in the hospital (when I was briefly on the pump), I went to sleep sitting up. It was adjusted to a gram every 10 minutes and I had too much that hour. They did not let me keep it long, but it does help when you have pain. After that, it was a 2-gram shot every 4 hours for breakthrough, but still got me up and moving around to get my walks in and such. I hope that works out good for you as well.

Devastated to hear about the spread. Seems so many of us have a situation right now. The brain scared me to death - and to be truthful, hearing your story shook me back to my core roots. Made me think if it could happen to Chicky, it could happen to me, but we'll fight in the lung right now and just take it as it comes. But you got my attention, honey.

You handle things so well. I've thought of you often and just wish I could do something besides sit here. I'm laid up pretty hard right now. Been home just under a week now. Won't bore you with my story, you are our priority case right now.

I'll let you go, but just wanted to say "love you." You should see a card from me this week. Kim picked one out for me as I could not physically go - she is worried and talks about you.

I don't know exactly where your tumors are in your brain, but I'm sure you could go overseas and have them treated with stereotactic radio surgery. I am praying for you and wishing you the best.

I was so stunned when I learned about your mets update. You were so supportive and inspirational towards me when I joined the board last year. I'm sure you'de probably be amazed at just how many people you've touched in our unique family here. Hoping and praying for the best. Take care of yourself.

So glad to see that you are on the boards, even if it is for just to post once in awhile. It's good that hospice is helping you with this pain, they definitely are such angels on earth. So sorry to hear that it has spread so. Praying for a miracle for you.

Hugs! Kim

You and your beautiful family are in my prayers right now. As someone said above, no matter what road your journey leads you on, your sweet children are going to be just fine - they've been raised by an amazingly strong, wise, and resilient woman!

You've always been so sweet to me and everyone else on this board - thank you for being one of the first to welcome me here. You demonstrated to all of us that life doesn't stop after a cancer diagnosis - I know that I speak for many when I say that you are truly an inspiration to keep on living - and have a lot of fun along the way!

I am devasted that you've experienced this turn of events. I'm still praying for a miracle and sending you lots of love!

You have been so sweet and caring to so many, and you are such a strong person. I agree with the others who said your children will be fine, yu have done a wonderful job of raising them. Your spirit always shines through when you respond to another member.

I'm SO glad you posted!!! We've all been thinking so much about you. Today when it was 3 here, I was part of the group praying for you. I did a solo at church Sunday, "I Want Jesus To Walk With Me." I dedicated it in my heart to you, dear lady, and today I sang it again just before I prayed.

You are such a precious lady!!!

to think of us and post about your situation as it is now. I can't tell you how devastated we all are to hear of your latest spread. However, that being said it's good to know you are still able to fight this thing and I hope you know that we are all praying for you daily. You are such a brave and wonderful "friend" and I feel honored to know you just a little bit (as much as you can know someone online). Keep the gloves on....we need you here.

It's so good to see and read a post from you!!
You have so been on my mind and heart these past several days.
I guess I'm at a loss for words at the moment- but I'm thinking of and praying for you.

Many hugs to you,

you know that all will be good, either way. You know that the kids will be fine. You know that Wes will be fine. Now, we need to make sure that you are fine...I got a weird feeling the other night that something happened to me and I told my wife standing right there that they said it would be alright, she said who said that, then I asked myself"what just happened" ....I still am not sure what it was, but I think I know where it came from....I have to think it was true, that's just the way I think. I hope no matter what goes on that you find or have already found that solace. It lets you know that all is good no matter what, all is good...Keep that thought sweetheart, and all will be good.....I love you all...Clift

This is tough....I know your concern for you kids and they will be okay, that you have them with you now and can talk to them will be good for them. But, I am hoping for a miracle and don't you stop asking either....

If you need anything, let me know. If you need me to fly and help let me know, remember I am unemployed now! I am serious! Send me a pm and I will reply to any of your needs.

I was on this board Nov 2008, left... then came back, but I do remember your first post.

Hang in there and keep praying!

Like everyone else on this board, i am devastated to hear about your spread, Donna. I'm also amazed and grateful that you came here to let us all know. You must feel like total crap. I can only imagine how tired you are, not just physically, but emotionally, spiritually, and in all other possible ways. Your strength has been such an inspiration to me, and i only hope that i can offer some words of comfort and support to you now. My Father's best friend was diagnosed with an abdominal tumor last year. He drank 8 oz of pure pomegranite juice twice a day, and within the year, the tumor disappeared. It can't hurt to try it, even though i think it tastes pretty badly, and have a hard time drinking it myself, now is probably the time to try ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. There is always hope. We hear about these cancer survivor miracles all the time. I will pray every day for a miracle for you, Donna.

Tons of love and positive juju to you,

Your energy, strength and spirit comes through loud and clear through your words and beautiful picture. You were one of the first people to respond when I first posted about my husband. I am praying for you to have peace, no pain and healing. I pray for your children too. God Bless you and your family. xo, Alex

Beautiful lady, I just wanted you to know that when I came here last fall you were one of the first to throw me a life line. You are always so upbeat and encouraging and I felt an immediate connection to you. I too am inoperable and am relying on chemo to do it's job. I think of you and your family often and ask for Gods grace and healing for you. Blessings to you and yours.

I can only echo what everyone else said - I am SO happy you posted an update, Thank you! I tried calling you, even texted - maybe you didn't recognize the minnesota area code? Like the others, I looked up and said a prayer at 2pm for ya, but I've been doin that everyday since I heard, and even a few days before I heard, because I felt something not right. Can't explain that, I just did.

I think you should have an extra scoop or three....love ya special lady!

Thanks for your continual inspiration on this rocky road of cancer. I remember when you were so scared (I was too; and a little bit still too :-), and you just kept putting one foot in front of the other and kept on doing all those things that are wonderful in your life; living your life. I am honored to know you.

lots of love, Leslie
