How can I say thank you to each and every comment and prayer left here the last few days? There are no words to express what is in my heart. You are an amazing group of people and I wish I had the chance to know you all personally! Though I have never met any of you I consider you friends and kindred spirits.

So what is happening? My mom went over to the cancer clinic on the mainland after having an MRI that showed positive for cancer in her liver. (Last year it was in her ovaries.) Her oncologist told her that yes, it is cancer but it is slow growing and there are only 3 spots. He told her that for now they will do nothing but wait and see. People can live with cancer in their bodies for years and can live with it and can choose to just have chemotherapy and/or radiation to shrink the tumour. So. It is not the news we wanted to hear but it is certainly better than it could have been. This will be a walk of faith and trust. Loving each day as it was your last and one day at a time. Shouldn't we all be living this way?

Barbera, Cancer is no longer the death sentance it used to be. With all the reaserch, people are living longer and beating it. I will continue to keep your Mom and you in my thoughts.

Oh my thoughts and prayers are with you both!!! It saddens me to hear that it's come back.

My father-in-law has been living with prostate cancer for 12 years now and the cancer specialist told us that because it was "slow growing" he'd probably end up dying of something other than the cancer it self. Not sure if that's of any comfort but it does help us get through some days.

Take care...*hugs*

Oh hon, I really hope all goes well for your mother. I know how awful that feeling is and how helpless you can feel when dealing with such news.

Hugs, love and loads of prayers. You know you and your mom are always in my prayers. Had the head shaved for the kids again this year, as it means so much to me to be able to help in any little way.
