This week, I have a CT scan on Monday and then I get to discuss it with my oncologist on Wednesday and I am very frightened.
When I finished the radiation treatments on May 2, I felt tired but very upbeat. I was so sure that the tumor was totally gone.
My energy has now returned and I am still somewhat upbeat, but I am very scared to know if maybe even a tiny piece of it might still be there because it is a very aggressive cancer.  Right now, I still think its all gone.....and don't even want to hear that it isn't.  The scary thing is...that ever since I've had this horrible disease, I have never ever gotten one shred of good news, but I have kept fighting and intending to win.
I am really afraid of Wednesday, so I was wondering if any of you would be so kind as to please include me in your prayers.  I will do my best to keep you informed on what is going on, but if its bad news, I may be so depressed that I might not be able to face it for a couple of days....but I really will try to sit down at this computer and let you all know something, or at least email one of you so you can spread the news.
Thanks for all of your love and prayers.
~ superloving hugs

You being in my prayers is a "given" Lyra.  Of course you are scared, and it's good to talk about it so keep sharing, and we will all be right here with you t help as bst as we can.

Lyra, Please know that you will be prayed for by my family in Boston. We will be with you spiritually and will be thinking extra good thoughts. May God grant you His peace in your heart and may His healing powers wash over you and remain with you. You do not walk alone. Hugs, Marti

You are in my thoughts and prayers, every day and all the time.  I sure don't blame  you for being scared...I know I would be.  I hope you can make peace with time until Wednesday...it is so slow and yet so fast!

Prayerful hugs!

Dear Chipmunk, I'm not religious, but for you I'll say a prayer in me own way.

Hang in there pal, I think the whole blue pages is keeping you in their thoughts coming Wednesday. I will and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Ya know, these tons of burden on your shoulders? Just know that we all be here to help you carry it sweet girl.

Thank you so much for your vote of confidence, Sandra...I hope you are right, but I would like to make it through this without major radical surgery....I wonder if that is asking too much?
I hope that you have been feeling better.

Thank you so much, Titia...I am not religious either...in the go to synagogue or go to church sense of the word....but I do believe in God and I believe that he/she hears our prayers...and I feel very fortunate to have prayers and thoughts from all of my friends here at Passions....

With all of these prayers coming from all over the world...I think God will be impressed...don't you.
