I am in great need of your prayers, everyone.
« on: February 23, 2014, 08:22:22 PM »
My dear friends, I had a CT scan done earlier this month, and met with my surgeon on 2/20. The results are not good. That monster named cancer is back--and with a vengeance. I have several small tumors (I hope they're as small as they looked on the scan image) scattered through out my abdominal cavity, it's pretty obvious that the chemo I went through did not work. On 3/4 I will  be having  pretty intense surgery..it will be the full vertical abdominal cut and I'll be in the hospital for 4-5 days (at least what I've been told) My surgeon said he is confident he can remove everything the scan showed. Once my body heals a bit from that, I'll be having more chemo --a different kind than the last go round. I'm scared, but trying desperately to not panic. Thank you all so much for continued prayers and good thoughts.

Oh, no.  I'm so sorry to hear that.

Thinking of you.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Kirienne, you will be in my prayers.  Stay strong and positive - you will beat this.

Kirienne, I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope your surgeon is right about his ability to remove the tumors. After all you went through last year, it must be a terrible blow to know the cancer is back so quickly. I hope the ultimate prognosis will be good. We'll be pulling for you and praying for you!

 I've not long joined this online community but am so impressed by the mutual care. Prayers and vitual hugs -will especially try to pray for you in the mornings uk time cos am guessing that makes it middle of the night your time - those 2am lows.

Part of my religious tradition is to offer special prayers as intentions at the Eucharist - will have you in my prayers then too.

This is horrible, and of course we will be thinking and praying for you.

Although cancer is not to be sneezed at, it is not the automatic death sentence it was just a few years ago.

Indeed.   Cancer treatment is getting more sophisticated all the time.  Which is not at all the same thing as saying it's any more pleasant for the patient.  I hope this round of chemotherapy will do the job on the C-Monster more effectively than the first round, did.

Good luck, Kirienne!

Oh, Kirienne, so sorry to hear the monster has returned!  :'(  You will definitely be in my prayers.

Kirienne,  you are in my thoughts.  I know you may not get this for a few days, but just know people are thinking about you and wishing you well.
Get well Soon.
