edited March 2011 in Colorectal Cancer #1
I have come home and in the hands of Hospice as of Monday. Getting everything in order. I don't get on the computer very often now, but I will try to update everybody. The tumors in my abdomen have grown to the point of multiple partial obstructions, which can't be fixed using surgery since my prior surgeries have left so much scar tissue/adhesions. I'm comfortable, and will stay on top of the nausea and pain to be sure I'm comfortable. My family has been coming into town to visit with me, which has been great! My twin, Matt, is coordinating everything for me, he's such a HUGE blessing. I would appreciate if you could pass this info onto the CSN board for me, ok buddy?.

Thank you for reading!

    Mary, I have been thinking about you a lot lately. I am so sorry your tumours have grown to this point. I am glad you are comfortable + have lots of family around, especially Matt to help you with everything. I am thinking of you.

    Mary..........
    never a bauble with your dignity, grace, or peace of mind about your situation. You are whom I wish to be, a steady ever vigilant constant that never said never, and strength and courage to do whatever necessary to keep everything at bay. If only we could be as strong as your will and determination is...and yet ever smiling, cutting up, being there in my early dx and helping keep me sane through it all...and you still, steady as a rock. I admire anyone that stands and fights with a bring it on attitude and stays in the ring as long as you have...My love, prayers, and thank yous for being there for me are small in comparison to all you have given to this board, and Im sure to everyone's life you have touched outside of here as well as inside.....may you find your peace in all of this, much love to you and all you stand for......and thank you for being here for all of us...love to you in your journey............Clift

    oh no!
    Dear Mary: I am very very devastated to hear how this all ending...you were always so nice, helpful and kind...you really always gone out of your way to help. I don't know what to wish you though...I should be wishing you "good transition, no pain" but I don't want you to go!!! And therefore I cannot wish that to you! I guess the only thing I can wish for you then is for you to feel how many lives you touched, and how many people love you and always, yes, I said ALWAYS, love you! Please take care of yourself!
    Hugs to you,
    Sophie
