I have never posted to this group, although I have been a member for several months. But when I noticed the posting from you on here today, I just had to listen to that song and it hit home so bad. www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlQPnNy6JR0">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlQPnNy6JR0 But to introduce myself and tell you all a little about me...Im a 57 yr. old female who in June 1997 was diagnosed with neuroendocrine (islet cell) cancer. I had a Whipple procedure done with in 2 weeks to remove the tumor. I was told at the time that this was a very rare slowgrowing tumor and was lucky to have been able to have it removed and I would more than likely have a complete cure. Well, to bring it to date, just this week I was told that I have 4 lymph nodes that are growing fairly rapidly since my last CT and that it is a possibility that the cancer has returned. I know how all of you who have suffered from cancer feel, well this is the 2nd hit for me and I still won't know for sure until after the Octreotide scans on the 20, 21 and 22nd of this month. Life is short and I sure don't plan to leave this world any time soon and I will fight it all the way. But ever since I was told by my oncologist yesterday that it could be returning I went into a deep funk and have cried and remembered 2 years ago. Im feeling the same things and my mortality is on my mind heavily like I know it is for all cancer patients. I know I want to hold my head up and have hope, which I do, but when you are faced with your own mortality its easier said than done. Heres hoping all of you can continue to deal with your disease with strength and courage and please let it be known I pray every single day for complete healing for all cancer patients. Thank you Tiara for that song. It hit home immensly.
I read your story about your cancer journey. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you. Please just take one day at a time.
I know how you feel about being in a deep funk. Anxiety is part of my life most everyday and some days it goes way off the top. And it affects my ability to function.
Please keep us updated as often as you can on how you are doing. So many people here have been or are going through the same or similar experience like what you are going through- and everyone has a way of helping one another.
I, too, will be lifting you up in prayer - continually.
