Just popping in to say 'hi'...


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Many of you probably don't remember me as I have not posted in quite a while, but I received alot of love and support here 3 years ago when I really needed it! I'm happy to report that mom's cancer is still in remission and we've not had any recurrences since we stomped it out the first time. Mom is still struggling healthwise as her damaged lungs and emphysema make it very difficult for her to breath but she is still lives a very active life. Just recently mom suffered a difficult bout of bronchitis and though her oxygen levels dipped to 85% and then to 76% she was never even hospitalized (though she probably should have been). Oxygen tank has been delivered and though mom is still fighting using it all the time, we know in the long run it is what she really needs.

I hope any newbies reading this post will understand that we won our fight with lung cancer. It is the smoking for 50+ years that has damaged my moms lungs and causing her grief today. She will be 82 in December and still lives at home with my 84 year old father.

Unfortunately cancer has stricken someone else close to me. My very dear friend Brent has recently been diagnosed with colon cancer that has spread to his liver. He is in his early forties and still has much life to live and dreams to fulfill. If you could keep him in your prayers I would appreciate it! The journey he is beginning to take reminded me of all my old friends here so that is why I needed to come back and say hi. I see we've lost some special people since my last visit.

Kasey - I was so sorry to hear about Tracy, I truly prayed she would be one to pull through!

And Carleen I was delighted to see you posting again but I am so sorry you are still having dark days. I hope for the best for you and your new hubby and your extra special blessings.

Randy - are you still throwing eggs and offering warm fluffy blankets to those having a rough day?

Just want you all to know that even though I am not here on a regular basis, I still think of you often.

Love, Karen
