Elizabeth's Cancer Blog
Its good to hear from you and I am glad to hear that things are stable but it still sucks that you have to go through. We are to young, but I agree that you should do whatever is going to make you happy in this life and if that means having a baby then that is exactly what you should do. I am praying for you and hope that one day you will be cancer free and be able to enjoy life the way you are supposed. God bless Stacey
Hi Elizabeth, I was pleased to see your post. It is good that your situation is basically stable, but certainly frustrating that you are in pain and must plan for more radiation. I am really glad that you got another opinion about pregnancy. Hang in there and stay in touch. Andrea
You are so strong. Please take care of yourself. Sounds like there is going to be a little soul on this earth who needs a momma to raise him/her. You are so young to be dealing with all of this. Wishing you all the best results with your treatment and recovery.
I was just diagnosed with the same thing. My sister was diagnosed back in May of 2009. Not sure what I'm in for. Have my first appt with the doctor and surgeon on Friday.
Kellye sent you a prayer.
Elizabeth You have an amazing, strong spirit! I am so glad you have a strong family. I understand about having a daughter who loves you and how that helps. I feel very lucky for each of my 2 daughters and 3 sons. One of my daughters is the rock in our house and guess what her middle name is Elizabeth! I named her that because of the strength in that name. I have read back in your blogs and see so much strenth in you . You are so young and I hope and pray that the amount of strength that I feel when reading your blogs, helps you through this awful disease. Hugs to you and Yours Val
I understand totally what you mean - I wish I could learn to be more thankful for alot of the things I have in life despite all that it has made me lose. Your post is much appreciated, I will definitely say that - keep the gloves on...
Today my brother from out of town asked me if i was talking to him from home. I explained i was taking my daughter to day care on the way to work. He commented how difficult it must be to have so much responsibility to be a single mother, who has to continue to work full time, and deal with cancer alone (because the rest of my family is absent from my life). without a second thought, i wrote back to explain to him, "what used to be a responsibility is now a privilege" those words have stuck with me all day. It was my privilege to take care of my clients. it was my privilege to go to work and my privilege to feed my children and take care of them and dance with them and talk to them. Cancer changes much in our life - what used to be my responsibility, is now my privilege. It's nice to know there are other people who feel the same way. Stay strong girl. We're getting through this, one fight at a time.
Hi Elizabeth, It's fine to post on the crummy days as well as the good ones. Cancer seems to make the lows lower and the highs higher. But we still have to take them one at a time. You have such spirit and passion, and you are using them both to get through this cancer maze. Prayers and hugs, Andrea
We all love life more now, and maybe thats the point? Keep ur head and ur spirits high...im praying for u
