Hi Brigitte- I just wanted to give you some encouragement and tell you that I will keep a good thought for your dear daughter. I hope she has a very successful surgery, with great care and a smooth recovery. AND I don’t know what we would do without our doggy girl! She definitely keeps our spirits up. Take care and all the best, TillyApril 17, 2018 at 9:05 am #96861positivityParticipant
Thank you for sharing. As I have stated before, it takes courage to share your story. You will find the strength to be there for your daughter and be there for each other. That’s what counts! Pets, especially dogs 🙂 can be comforting and offer that peace one needs during the challenges. Encourage her to join a support community for breast cancer survivors so she can share her experiences with others going through the same, and psychologically this will help her.
All the best to both of you.April 16, 2018 at 12:52 pm #96847bglassModerator
I am so sorry to hear this news about your daughter. Both of you have gone through a lot in recent years, with courage and good spirits, and now another bump in the road ahead. You have every reason to rant, and the discussion board community is here for you.
It is inspiring to hear how you are working through this new worry with a smile and with your chocolate lab beside you.
Best wishes that your daughter’s surgery goes well and that she has an easy recovery.
Take care, regards, MaryApril 16, 2018 at 11:04 am #96843bgmat48Participant
When I was diagnosed with CC 3 years ago, I was shocked but didn’t cry over it. I was determined to live one day at the day and asked God to give me strength which he has so far. However, my daughter who will turn 50 in August just got diagnosed with breast cancer and will undergo a double mastectomy next month and I find myself feeling very sad and have shed tears when alone. The good news is that her cancer is confined and has not spread anywhere but it is still traumatic for her although she is holding it together. I am determined to stay strong for her and I know she will be alright. It is just a lot to go through, she is alone, separated from her husband, has 2 grown children, one still at home and in school, he is 18, she just started a new job with the same agency she has worked in for the last 14 years. Thank goodness her boss is being very understanding and she can take 6 weeks off to recover. Sometimes, I just want ask God how much more our family can handle. In the last 7 years, I lost my husband, father of my children, my sister, then got CC and now Jenny has cancer as well. The good news is, I am still sane, not ready for the straight jacket yet and I have a lovely chocolate Labrador who makes me smile. Okay, I am done ranting.
