  1. Sue,

    I have tried 1000 times to come and post. I cry for you and the boys. I know how much this wonderful man will be missed by all of you. Mike was one of those rare individuals who made everyone feel like they had known him forever. I feel so blessed to have known him. I share your sorrow.

    John and I are here if you need us.

    May you find peace,


  2. Hi Neighbor,

    Welcome....Please be vigilant with the asthma also. I have coughed so hard as to bring up a little blood. SCAREY!! I pray that the nodule is no more than a bit of scar tissue.

    Oh this sounds awful but.....I sure hope you don't need us!!!

    have a blessed day,

    Pam :P

  3. Hi Sue,

    Of course, you and Mike and the boys are in our prayers.

    I had to go back to the doc also. Caught some bug that seems to be going around. Took the "Z" pack for 5 days but wasn't getting any better. Today, he started me on levaquin and within 3 hrs I could tell the difference.

    If you need me or John, please give a holler.

    God Bless Us All,


  4. My Dear Friend,

    I cry too. For the both of you. I remember my last visit ( January). Mike was sitting on the couch. He looked so good and you were fussing at him to put his oxygen back on. He got that shi_ eating grin when you told him he needed the oxygen. I think he just wanted to get you going. Hmmmmm, seems you fussed me out alittle too. My heart is breaking. I have always taken comfort in knowing that you two were right around the corner. I don't know what to do. I wish there was something I could say or do to make this time a little easier. You know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Please call if you need me.



  5. My Dear Friend

    I was so afraid that something was wrong. I drove by Friday and the car was gone. I was hoping you had gone shopping. Now, I feel I should have called or came by again. It seems as if everyone I talk too has this bad cold ( I'm wearing my surgical mask and keeping a 10 ft. distance). When I felt like I could be getting it, I started taking the drink Zicam and honestly it seemed to help. I have been keeping you and Mike and the boys in my prayers, hoping that this cold season would pass you all by. With all my heart, Sue, If I can do anything, be of any kind of help, please don't hesitate to call. I love you guys.

    keeping you all in my prayers,


  6. Welcome Heather

    My son is 36 and my daughter is 25. If you feel like venting to someone "older" I hope you will feel free to vent on me. I've been trying to come up with some words of comfort and wisdom for you, but I guess the best that I can offer is that you are not alone. You will not even realize it but you, your husband and child will be added to many prayer lists. Good wishes and thoughts will be sent your way. It is perfectly normal to cry at this time. I cried as I read your posting. Again, welcome. Pam

  7. Martha,

    When I was 35, I lost my mother to bronchial cancer. It was the most heart wrenching time of my life. 18 months later, I lost my father to prostrate cancer. I felt as if my heart had been ripped from my chest...and stepped on. But Martha, I was there for them both and I would not change that for the world. I was able to tell them I loved them. They were able to tell me that they loved me and would see me again.

    I had a young daughter ( she was 8 yrs. old at the time). She saw me crying and I explained as best as I could why I was so sad. You never get "over" it. You deal with it the best way you can. Even today, I will hear a certain song and cry. Something special will happen and I'll wish I could call and tell them. My grandson will get this "smirky look" on his face and it reminds me of my Dad. I just miss them. The loving doesn't stop. The missing them is always there. But - honestly- I know they are still with me. They would not want me to be sad. They would want me to enjoy my life and my family. I apologise for running on but I hope I have helped you just a little.

    I pray for strength and peace for you and your family. My heart aches for you.

  8. Hi Mitzu,

    Your Dad sounds like the "perfect" Dad. Offering you his love and a chance to say goodbye at the end. What a loving gesture! I am sure your heart is broken. May you and your family find peace and comfort in the days to come. God Bless!


  9. You sound like a very strong and determined lady. I am so glad you are going in tomorrow to set up the CT. I think the worst part of any illness, is feeling like we have no control. Good Luck to you. You are in my prayers. Please, let us know if we can be of any help.

  10. Shannon, I know how hard your dad is fighting. I couldn't "just" quit either. I would sneak a puff here and there. It took me a year of struggling, enbarressment, sneaking, lying, and hiding. Thank God - my husband, son and daughter "played" along. They kept telling me how proud they were. It gave me that much more determination to finally quit those little addictive sticks. Please do not humiliate your dad by telling him that you know he is lying.( he feels bad enough that he is lying) Instead, put your arm around his shoulders. Let him know that he can do anything he puts his mind to. Tell him that you love him and that you are proud of him. He is fighting two battles right now. A cancer and an addiction. I pray that he will win both fights.

  11. I'd like to thank you all for the wonderful welcome. You certainly know how to make a girl feel at home. I saw Sue today and she suggested that I add my profile on here as to what treatment I have had. I have a feeling that for the next several days I will be trying to figure this out. Please be patient!! I do have a web page that you are welcome to visit. I haven't worked on it much lately either but it will tell a litlle about me. Thanks again.
