Kris, that was good! What do you expect from an old lady whose memory is shot from Remicade. Joking…that was excellent. Anyone else care to share their poetry for Mary? Luv you Cookie. (The name I gave Kris a year ago when she visited me at the Lake in Milwaukee)April 12, 2014 at 6:10 am #81279
You both crack me up!!! And that’s what I need – lots of laughter. Humor is the best medicine!!!
Lainy – I wish you could come here too. It would be great to meet you in person!!!
Love to both of you. Hoping to talk to you Saturday Kris.
Peace, love & Hugs,

You could say
Mary, Mary, not contrary. Go out and plant some flowers
A healthy you, and vases too
So you can enjoy them for hours!!April 12, 2014 at 4:11 am #81277
Wish I could bring me out there! I would love to meet you, you are a strong and amazing woman. Guess our whole sight is pretty amazing full of strong and awesome people the world over. Just know I think about you a lot. OK I have always wanted to say this to you so here goes:
Mary, Mary but not contrary get out and plant a garden,
With health galore and happy thoughts
So I don’t have to call the warden. OK so what rhymes with garden????April 12, 2014 at 3:28 am #81276
You always bring a smile to my face.April 11, 2014 at 3:59 pm #81275
Mary, I am thinking of you and sending good juju to you! I think the best RX would be Kris!! If it would warm up she could ride her Cycle and ride it right up to your room! OMG I cracked myself up! Sending hugs, love and prayers too.April 11, 2014 at 2:11 pm #81274
I tried to call you the other day but you weren’t there and I wasn’t able to leave a message. I still do want to talk to you and would love, love, love to see you in person – it’s been too long!!!
I’m hoping to not have to be in the hospital again for a long time!April 11, 2014 at 6:30 am #81273
Mary, I second Karen! I’m 1.5 hrs from you. If you find yourself cooped up in the hospital again, please let me know! I will try to visit. Especially if the weather is nice and I can ride there!April 11, 2014 at 3:49 am #81272
Thanks Darla and Karen.
Karen, I don’t know if you remember but we met at the first luncheon that Kris organized. It was a pleasure meeting you and your sincere, sweet spirit shone through then and in your post today. I believe you’re way down south jersey and not close to me at all. I would love to see you but wouldn’t want you to make such a trip. Please continue to keep me in your prayers and hold me in your warm thoughts.

Sending out so much healing energies to you. It is so difficult making decisions through this journey. You are on my mind and in my heart. If you ever want somebody to just come and sit; to throw around some of the thoughts rambling around in your head, let me know. I will gladly find my way to Basking Ridge. Prayers of peace and healing to you.

Good luck Mary. Hope you get this sorted out and can get some relief. Thoughts & prayers heading your way.
Love & Hugs,

Thanks Marion. I know you feel my pain and I thank you for that. I do intend to have a honest discussion with my oncologist and see where that leads me.
Please keep me in your warm thoughts and prayers.
Love, Peace & Hugs,

Mary…I so much wish to have the answer to your question. Irinotecan is very difficult to tolerate – have not seen one single person breathing through this treatment.
I would have a heart to heart discussion with the oncologist. You need to know your options and you need to convey to the doctor your honest feelings.
Hugs are heading your way,
MarionApril 9, 2014 at 11:12 pm #81267
Thanks Marion and Kris,
Well, I was back in the hospital again. This time with thrush. It was miserable. I don’t know how much longer I can tolerate the Irinotecan. I’m thinking of asking the doctor if therein another chemo I can switch to. Do you think that is a wise decision? I want to fight this but I’m just so tired of all the setbacks.
Peace & Hugs,
MaryApril 6, 2014 at 2:49 am #81266
Hey! What do you mean you don’t know any of us personally?? I’m hurt! (Just kidding)
Glad to hear of the little successes. Hopefully they continue and keep improving.
