It's more than I was expecting...

Got the call that I was dreading this morning. Cancer is back in the left lung and now I have it in the right lung with lymph nodes involved. Current plan is chemo only to see how the cancers react and then possible radiation. Surgery is not an option.

I'm still stunned and I'm having a private mini pity party. Tomorrow I will wake up in my fighting mode and nothing will stop me :)

Gratefully accepting all prayers, mojo, positive thoughts and whatever else you want to send to help me through this :)

    Thank you all for the love, support, encouragement and prayers.

    The initial shock has finally worn off and I think I've finally run out of tears :) I'm gonna be okay, I have faith in my doctors that they will hit this again with everything they have in their arsenal. I kicked it's butt into hiding for almost 2 years and I'm sure I will do it again.

    Thank you all for being here for me when I need you, your the greatest!!!!

    Hugs and love to everyone,

    I pray that the next chemo regimen will knock this (bad word) out for once and for all. There is so much than can be done now to stop it, and I hope they find the right chemo to do just that. Lori

    Darn it Glenna. I took two
    Darn it Glenna. I took two days off the site and you're in a pickle again. Well we all know you are one heck of a fighter, and have a fantastic attitude, so I think the chemo is going to kick it's bu++! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. You are a tremendous support to so many of us when we are down. I am honored to support you.

    More than expecting....
    A little poem just for you Glenna,

    When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill.
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
    Life is queer with it's twists and turns,
    As every one of us at sometime learns.
    And many a failure turns about,
    When we might have won, had we stuck it out.
    Don't give up, though the pace seems slow,
    You will succeed with another blow.
    Success is failure turned inside out,
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems so far.
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
    It's when things seem the worst, that you must not quit!
    Sending my prayers for a good result of the chemo,
    Shirley
