I still read some of the posts and saw your name. I’m so happy for your good news! I saw you mentioned Scott Hamilton. You really were my mom’s soul sister- she loved him
Best wishes & Happy Holidays,
Kelly (Mary’s daughter)
Thank you all so much. It’s been a difficult few days but I’m fortunate to have my husband and family. My uncle and I keep talking about how selfish it is to want her here with us when she was in so much pain. I feel a sense of peace knowing she never has to experience any pain or trauma from procedures/surgeries again. She was braver than anyone should ever have to be.
The service was beautiful and reflective of my mom’s spirit and personality- to live every day to its fullest, love freely and be a kind & compassionate person.
Thank you all for your kind words of love and support. My mom passed about 9am this morning. She seemed peaceful and didn’t seem to be in pain. Her memorial service will be this Wednesday. Please continue to keep us all in your thoughts & prayers.

Thanks for your words of encouragement Percy. They mean a lot to me. I hope we both can enter the “promised land” soon and get at least a bit of a break from this disease.
I, too, can only echo what the others say here. You are so special to this board and you go above and beyond to help us understand so much. If I were to name all you do for us, it would fill MANY posts.
Now is your time to rest and hopefully you will get your motivation back. Five years is a long time to go through this horrible disease. I have been three years and it is wearing in me.
Please stay strong for yourself and know that we all love and care for you.
Peace, Love and Many Hugs to you,
I wish you the best on this journey!!!
Take care of yourself too.
Peace, Love & Hugs,
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 always bring a smile to my face.
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!
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.
Thanks for the update Willow. I will certainly keep Lisa in my prayers.
Love, Peace & Hugs to all,
I’m sorry you are having such a difficult time. I hope you can hang in and find some more strength to go on. I feel I’m in the same position as you at this moment and not sure where to turn. It seems to be one thing after another and I am feeling so discouraged and want to give up. I feel I am losing my quality of life and that is scary.
Prayers to you.
Love, Peace & 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,
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,
Marion, thanks for the warm wishes. I was starting to feel down with all these setbacks but once again you all have encouraged me to push on. Although I don’t really know anyone personally, I do feel like you are all my extended family and I can lean on you when needed.
Willow, thanks for letting me know about your sister. I was starting to think no one else had been on irinotecan and it’s good to heR your sister is and tolerating it well. I got reduced dose yesterday so maybe I won’t be so bad wit the side effects.
Once again, I can’t thank you all enough for kind, caring ways and words.
Peace & Love,
