Sharon thanks again for the update, even if I wished it had been better news.  I seem to be shaking my head a lot these days in wonder of what is going on?  I am glad to hear what Chris said about her family member, and we want all the good news we can get! Staying positive is the best medicine there is.

I took my grandddaughter's to a salmon barbeque at the First Nations longhouse today as I wanted a bit of time to ask some of the elders some advice on how better pray for Rebecca, and ask them to include her in the circle tonight, and tomorrow as a favor.  

They gave me a thin white ribbon with a feather to tie on my wrist today for Beckie in symbol of the White Dove, and an elder told me that every time I glance at it I should think of her, stop whatever is making me busy, center, and send her prayer, and I will do just that. It is so easy to get busy and forget to keep those prayers rolling with any consistency.  I wish I could give every person here a piece of white ribbon to wear to remind them to pray for this young mother.  

I found out today what Rebecca's name was in Cherokee (they said that was more appropriate for an American girl than Squamish, or Salishan   It is as shown below.

White Dove (may you rise in strength)

Thank you for the update on Becky.
Becky, I am speechless and don't know what to say. My thoughts and prayers are with you daily. I wish I could be there with you if for no other reason than to try to take away some of your pain. More prayers than ever are going out to you and your family.
Love and BIG (SOFT) hugs, Shawna

Hello all, it's the real me!  I'm home now.
Had both hips tested today before letting me go. I'm hurting, but getting around.

I have to say you guys are more than anything I could ever have asked for. I remember when I went in for ankle surgery and I was just terrified. I have to say with this surgery I was amazed at just how calm I was.  I have been so doped up that I haven't really grasped what they're telling me. I know I pissed off the oncologist. LOL
She left telling me that a little bit of knowledge is dangerous.  LOL  

I think today was the day I was in my right mind and the affect of what I was told and asking questions really hit me.  My husband and I cried together yesterday (though I'm sure he'd kill me if he knew I told)   .

I have a rare form of lymphoma.  It's called b lymphoblastic.  I still have to have a PET Scan and see the results of the bone marrow biopsy, but they tell me it's very treatable.  I will have radiation on the tailbone as the 25% that wasn't removed was wrapped around my nerves.  The rest will be treated with aggressive chemo.  So, here goes the hair, and the icky stuff that comes along with it.  God help me through this, this is going to be very very hard.


SharonI wanted to tell you I got your flowers and I really appreciate them! Thank you! I cried at your poem.  


I cried at the white ribbon too.     Man that hurts to blow your nose ya know? LOL  This is simular to luekemia.  What a shock.
So we're in the midst of staging here, and I'm hoping that will come back good.

I can't sit here anymore as this is killing my incision. I just wanted to thank you all for your continued support and prayers. They have kept me strong. Really have. I have a long hard road ahead of me and would love if you'd continue them.  As for my family too.  This is a hard adjustment for my kids, and I'm sure going to be difficult to watch me go through.

God bless each and everyone of you! Love you all!!!

My goodness, Rebecca! You are a real trooper! You and your family are going through a very difficult time. As you know, we Pipsters form one powerful, international (might I venture to say "intergalactic"! ) prayer circle! And you my dear, are right in the centre of it!

Sending you a rainbow of healing Lights,

Hey sending you prayers but also watch the mail for a little something that will give you a smile I hope.  Forget the hair, it grows back and "work with it girl" trust me there are some cute scarves out there with your name on them!

Hang in there lady, and try to depend on those relatives for now, that is what family is about!  I think you will be surprised as the strength you have given your kids, as they are YOUR kids, see?  Talk to you soon.

UPDATE  Ok well...grrr...here goes.

Got the results of the bone marrow biopsy and it was found to be in it on one side.
So that would put me at stage 4.  I fell apart.  I know they told me to not freak out if that was the case as stage 4 lymphoma is not like stage 4 other cancers.

Things got moving real quick and I'll be seeing the chemo guy tomorrow for consult.
Don't ya just question why me? but then move on.  Never will I know the answer to that.

So this is just to let you know where I'm at.  Until I know more....  Hugs
