In answer to the "Why me?"  Well...I have a theory about good people getting really bad things happen to them.  I think it sets an example to those of us that are not so good to do a lot better, and learn from you Becky.  You know, when you have a strong faith such as you do, perhaps every once in a while he tests that faith maybe in others as well as the person he inflicts?  I know I am trying to do better, but my heart is in a knot for those of you struggling.  I hope you get 100% on your test - I truly, truly do.  My wish for you is that this is all over soon - so, the sooner the better they start to rid you of this little demon!     Hang in there Becky.

I saw the chemo doc today here. He's great! I loved him. I just told him I need someone to be brutely honest with me no matter what.
He was.

Monday I will go to have a port installed in the chest area. That will help them administer chemo and draw blood or whatever is necessary. He said he will talk with quite a few of the head docs at Rush and work out a plan of treatment for me. I will hear from him Monday.  My sciatic pain in my right leg came back with force today, so his first priority is to keep me out of pain.  So he made me promise I wouldn't skip my meds that I'd take them regularly like I should.  So I'll do that.

I hate to be doped up, so I wasn't taking them as I wasn't really hurting. Well, he promised me I'd get used to it so to keep taking them to keep my pain under control.
So I shall.  

So that's it for now guys.  Thanks again.

Take your medication...do what the doctors tell you. And keep your faith AND your smile. I'm glad you have a doctor you trust. That's a good thing.

The funny thing is Sharon that when I mentioned the clinic, he kind of what's the word...hmmphd...

I said kind of ironic how many doctors from there have been diagnosed with cancer. He thinks it's related to the chemicals I was exposed to while there.  There have 3 docs there with cancer. 1 has died, the other left the clinic and I don't know what's happened to her, and the other one isn't doing so well.

Hmm.......

Shades of Silkwood?  Hmmmm...

Becky - I just got home and am doing "catch up".  

You reached out for me when I first came here.  I'm reaching back.  

You are, and will remain, in my prayers, my friend.

Becky,
Still praying for you and yours. You're one tough lady and I know that your faith will see you thru this. I'm real glad you like your doctor. Now do what he says and take all your meds. Love and Hugs, Shawna

I just read the entire thread.  

Becky, I cry out for you too - that your Father would bring you comfort in this time and reveal Himself to you and your family, that you all would know His presence at your sides in an unmistakable way.  And that He would heal you.

Much love
Angela

Thank you again.  I know my family is having a hard time. Particularly one of my sisters.  I can only do what I can do, the rest is up to God.  I have to put that trust in Him, no matter where that may lead.

I truly hope it leads to life here longer.

I will be admitted to Rockford hospital tonight. They will be doing surgery and putting a shunt into my head to prevent the cancer going to my brain.  I had my port put into today and then sent to the doctor afterwards.  I didn't get very good news.

The results of the PET scan aren't in yet, but if it's in my organs would make things harder, but not change my treatment.

I will be admitted to Kishwaukee Hospital here at home Wednesday to start aggressive treatment.  It will continue for 5 days. Then maybe after that I can home and look forward to this every 21 days.  I have about a 40%-50% chance of survival.
Those are not very good odds, and I'm beside myself.  I will not be back on for quite some time to respond.  Please intensify all of your prayers for me and this treatment will be accepted by my body.

Please pray for my family and for me.
GOd love ya all!

Dearest Rebecca,

I'm calling on all angels
To keep you in their care.
Theyll pick up that extra 50%
I just know they will be there!

I don't pray all that often,
So I hope they hear my prayer?
Take it up to God in heaven,
To keep you in his care.

I know he will hold your hand,
See you down this rocky road
In the face of fear, and fragility,
He'll be there to share your load.

I am sending you all the strength and positive energy I can through these pages of blue Rebecca, and know all those you have touched are with you in healing thoughts and prayer.

Dear Becky:  Such a rough time for you and your family.  I am keeping the most positive thoughts for your recovery!  I think if you can make yourself believe you will survive, it goes a long ways towards making it so! I have had to deal with cancer in several family members, including my husband.  He has been free of cancer for 6 years now!!  We wouldn't let him give up!
I'm keeping the same kind of vigil for you!

Love and God's blessings!

Betty Lou

Becky

My prayers have not worked very well in the past, but I still believe that they can...and with all those that you have here, you have leverage for many things.  My hope is that you get through this with as little pain as possible and spirit growth for wherever you are.  You are strong.

I was just speaking to a friend today about Will Power, and Faith.

I've seen a lot of miracles.

You are in my prayers, now, as always.

Ok...I think this will be my last update for a while.  Unless my mom or Sharon can get on here to let you know what's up.

We went out to Rockford yesterday with some
misunderstanding as to what I was doing there.  Finally things got worked after they paged the doctor and had he himself finally came down to get things straightened out.

So I had the shunt put in this morning. Right in the front to the right.  
However, I told this was permanent.  So my Dad gathered the family for me when I finally was released, to meet here at home.
He annointed me with Olive Oil and we all joined in a healing circle.

I will once again be going to Kishwaukee Community Hospital tomorrow and as I understand that, I shall be in there 5 days to receive treatment. Maybe up to 14 days. Depending on how things go.

If there are terrible mistakes in here that make it hard to read forgive me. I'm sitting here kind of seeing double.  Please, I want to remind you all how much I Love and appreciate everything.  I pray I will be able to get out to see the fireworks!  I love the 4th!

God bless ya, will let you know as soon as I can.

We will all be praying that it goes well for you Rebecca, and keep up the circle of love and prayers at this end.  Take care and try to rest as much as you can.  My heart goes out to you in your trials, but I know your faith will lift you above all this.
