Sandgrain and Rebecca:  Thanks for keeping us informed.  I have been thinking about Rebecca all day and how frightening it must have been for her.  I'm praying daily for all of you and for a happy conclusion to what has been a nightmare, I'm sure.

Love
Betty Lou

I too am sending my thoughts to you Rebecca, and hoping you are not in much pain, emotionally and physically. It is wonderful to have the support of your family around you at a time such as this, and certainly nothing like their love, so absorb all you can for strength.  May your strength of faith see you through this with flying colors.

I am remembering how we met Becca.

grin?

(We'd had a spiritual disagreement.)

But to my surprise, Rebecca never passed judgement on me because of our differences. She contacted me on ICQ, and we began a long series of interesting discussions and to the surprise of both of us, we discovered our diffences were actually minute, and that we shared more in our past than most would surmise.

I am praying for you, Dovie (and yes, still in my own weird, esoteric way)

I've learned much about spirituality and understanding from your shining example.

You're much loved, and the name White Dove suits you perfectly.



The prayers are unceasing my friend.

Is this the how I got to know Becky corner?  If so, PoetdeVine I dare you to tell your story, LOL.

As for me, I heard of Becky through an older lady at the retirement centre who read her poetry online, not realizing it was at Passions.  I began reading in Spiritual because of her, and to this day read there every single day, and it sure doesn't hurt me any either.  Not all of us think about religion the same way, but somehow we connect through our human qualities, love of life, and want of that human connection.  I have my "own beliefs" as it were, but respect every one else's and it was our White Dove, that has on many occasion filled my heart, as Serenity would say, with a joyful "gleeeeeeee".

Here's to you Becky, and please try to be SO positive, you know that is the best medicine there is.  I think I can say, we ALL miss you and want you "home" soon.

SANDGRAIN: Please keep the updates coming?

I just got an email from Becky's mom..She says that Becky was in intensive care but has been moved out. She has to lie flat on her back for 48 hours because they had a spinal fluid leak when doing surgery (at the base of the spine).  Her mom said it was hard watching Becky try to eat her lunch with her plate balanced on her chest...lying flat must be hard...

Initially, her surgeon said she'd be there about 3 days, then he said she'd be released as soon as she was feeling better, up and around.  Later, he said the full pathology report would take about 5 days and she may as well stay til then for treatment to be set up, so her length of stay is up in the air now.

She's in a hospital that's rated one of the country's top for cancer research, training and treatment.

Her 2 older sisters went to her house today to do a clean sweep and bring already prepared home-made foods for the family.  

Becky lives about 3 hrs. from the hospital so her ride home will no doubt be painful. And they are hoping her treatment can be set up closer to her home, as that's a long haul on a tender spinal base.

Please keep Becky and her family in your prayers....they keep her spirits up.

Thank you.

Update from Becky's mom -

Yesterday they lowered the boom, informing Becky it's a lymphoma, but they need to do bone marrow test to see if it's in the bone too.  They say it's a very aggressive type, requiring aggressive chemo treatment, (unless there are further findings in the marrow) that will take approximatesly 6 months.  

Becky was crushed! Plus a nurse got her up for the bathroom and she nearly fainted, was hot, dizzy and nauseous.  Another nurse came in saying she wasn't supposed to be up at all, so took all Becky's vitals, tested her for feeling and checked her incision, then injected a myraid of medications to make her groggy.  

Hopefully, today will begin turning the bend to better episodes.  They want her to get treatment set up Monday.


If you'd like to send a REAL card to Becky, please email me at poetdevine@yahoo.com and I'll give you her address.

Thank you!

Aw, bless her heart - so much to be going through. Yes, cards would be the least we can do for Becky. Thanks PdV. Chris

p.s.  Please tell Becky's mom to take heart ... our nephew aged 19, was diagnosed a year ago with Hodgkins Lymphoma, went through chemo & radiation and is now cancer free. Had to have the bone marrow test as well. I know every case is different - but there is always hope!

What frightening news... but remember, Jesus has overcome the world, hell, and the grave, we just have to believe, and I know that Becky believes. I am praying for you and your family.. I hope you can also take heart in the fact that lymphoma is a fairly treatable form of cancer. They suspected it in my uncle, so I read up on it. Your chances are good from what I know, and thats NOT counting God's grace!  

I love you and am praying for you

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee
