    Hey Kris, I’m glad you’re feeling better. Get out on that bike and go. There’s nothing like laughing with a sister or brother. Enjoy it, I know you both will. Yay for better weather. I understand the sacrifice of no milk in your tea and I admire you. Someone would have a big fight on their hands if they tried to take away my french vanilla creamer for my coffee. I gotta’ have it! Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and keep you in my prayers. Love you!

    Marc, I’m so sorry about your Mom. Mothers are so special. She will always be with you in your heart. I’m glad you got to celebrate her life with family and I’m sure there will be more times like that as you remember all the good things. Now the hard part-funeral arrangements, but you will get through it. With love to a wonderful son.

    Marion, thanks for taking the time to answer. What you said is very interesting and a lot to take in and think about. I will definitely listen to the session you mentioned. It always bothered me that the CA 19-9 seemed important, but was just brushed aside by Charlie’s doctor. I appreciate the information.

    Thank you Marion, David, Lainy and Teddy for making our voices heard in Phoenix. I wish you all the best in Florida. Hugs coming back to you.

    Marion, I have a question for you. Do you find it odd that Charlie’s oncologist at Wake Forest/Baptist Med. Center would not tell us Charlie’s
    CA 19-9 while he was undergoing chemo there for several months? I don’t know if he even had the test there. The doctor said he didn’t think it was relevant and wouldn’t discuss it. I hear so much about it here on the board and I was surprised the doctor wasn’t more open to it. Any thoughts? Thank you.

    Hey Pam, thanks for sharing your uplifting story. I know what you mean about anticipatory grief. It is so hard on the family mentally and even physically. Ben’s (our son) stomach just seems to stay in knots. I think it’s ever present-what’s going to happen? when is it going to happen? I would like to go on one of your walks. Sometimes we just have to give in to it, experience it, go through it and come out feeling a little better. Lots of birds and nature sounds here, but no loud ocean sounds to drown out the ranting and crying.

    Love, Carol

    Hi Janet, I’m so glad things are sort of settling down now. I agree that real life is very hard. I hope your son continues to do well and you continue to get away and swim in the ocean and take care of yourself. Nature is very soothing to the mind, body and soul I think.

    Praying for better tomorrows,

    Dear Karen,

    As I read this, I’m crying and my heart breaks for you. We were walking this road together and still are in a way. We are all here for you. I always think of Jeff, Charlie and Robin together. I know he’s rejoicing in Heaven with all his loved ones that are there to greet him. I imagine nothing that is said is going to diminish your pain for a while. I know you’ll do what you have to do to make it. You’re strong even if you don’t feel it right now. Much love and prayers coming your way.

    Praying for better tomorrows,

    Hey Tom, keep us posted on how your next appointment goes. Staying inside does tend to make us feel isolated. I hope you can get out and about soon. Good reports and good wishes for you!

    I’m so sorry Tracy. Mom’s are so special. What an amazing daughter you are and what great care you took of her. My heart aches that it wasn’t more peaceful at the end for her. All the butterflies sound like a gift from God and your Mom. Wishing you the best through hard times.

    Praying for better tomorrows,
    Carol
