turning point

Hello everyone...
I just wanted to come through and see how everyone has been doing...in our part of the States the weather is quite contrary....ok ok...I admit it IS still WINTER. The wind is howling outside of my little mobile home but all is well and I feel like I am in a cocoon...with Bud just a heartbeat away....
I have been thinking and praying for so many here...I know the path. Yet, I am also coming to a small but healing point..FINALLY...and after going on 4 months, I feel like I am coming back to life...I never realized the weight I was carrying for over two years....because that was when the true "grief" started. I had posted here time and time again about how I just KNEW when the tests started back in 2004 that it was going to be bad. Like God wanted to prepare me. But even in hind sight, there is NO WAY you can prepare for that time that the merciful Lord says "Enough..." Enough sorrow, pain, needles, drugs, being made "less" of a person (I know Bud xp that a few times even with the best of the oncology team...it was his own feelings of failing, or falling short....) or no more options. I saw the expression in his eyes when he realized that time had run out.

I just know that the heroes here will take from where he left off and be the victors. The ones that DO make it and exceed once again science and medical training. Hooray for the victories that are happening now and are going to happen.

God bless you all in this wintery day of February.....

Love, prayers, peace and healing....

Jan

Re: turning point

Hello, when he was finally dx it was LC NSCLC stage 3B in April 2004 after the PET. He lasted nearly two years...and he was a warrior. God rest his soul. I hope to be that brave when my time comes....

Thank you for asking...I pray for a LC cure every day...but I guess we just have to have faith in science.

God Bless and healing to all
Jan
