    Sorry I have not been around. Me and the computer don't get along, I have to have people type and read for me. I want to thank all you for your prayers and thoughts and well wishes. You are all fighting a hard fight and for you to take the time to think of me is so touching! :)

      Your kids have a hero for a mother. I may only meet you in virtual reality but you are as real to me as anyone I know. I carry you in my heart - you are an inspiration and comfort to me. I, too, believe in miracles and pray for one for you. Miracles aren't always what we envision for ourselves. Sometime the best miracles are the transformations you create in the lives of others. Your story has the power to transform lives and knowing you makes my life better and easier to bear. Thank you.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): Started progressing backwards in every way possible and almost went into a coma. My blood count was 5. Stayed some time at the hospital to find out I now have cancer in my brain and my time here is going to be short.

    TY for the support every one sorry I have been away but I am finding it harder and harder to get out of bed and I have not even started treatment. They found a 3cm tumor pushing againts my right pulmonary artory and it is making it VERY hard to breath. I got for a pet scan tomorrow but I am nervous and scared I also start radiation tomorrow and this time I don't get a comfy face down feel like I am sleep effect I get arms above my head face up, which would be ok if my arms didn't argue with me every second they are above my head.. screaming at me." THIS HURTS" they said i could take a pain pill but because of my pet scan tomorrow I can not do that now. I feel like my body is giving me the middle finger.

      Hi there, I just wanted to give you a few words of support and wish you well and let you know I will be saying prayers for you as you go for your PET scan tomorrow. I remember when my mom had to go have those done. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and a year after finishing treatments for that she was diagnosed with AML and had a bone marrow transplant from her little sister. She is doing good today and goes regularly to her dr's for checkups. When My mom was diagnosed I got involved with the ACS and Relay For Life and became an advocate for them. Just hang in there and keep your head up and think positive thoughts. Remember don't let cancer beat you, you beat cancer :). If you need anything let me know, you are welcome to email on that exchange email link if you want. I will be praying for you. Hang in there.

      Hey hey Heidi!!! Pet scans are a breeze! Take it from a claustrophobic! I dont know about the techs that you will have, but mine does not allow any singing, talking, moving, or listening to music. It is important to just relax so that it wont mess up the "picture". You see, the radioactive stuff will pick up any hot spots in your body. If they find hot spots it is usually cancer. If they are not sure, then the doc will order an MRI. I dont know about you, but I rather avoid MRIs. Anywho, just relax and be patient. The machine I was in was not noisy and in fact, it was comfortable. It almost made me feel snuggly lol. When your arms being up like that hurt. Take your mind elsewhere. The beach or your babies is good. I myself start talking to God or imagine myself in Jesus' arms. :) Good luck sista! xoxox
