Wishing For My Own Personal Summer

I am waiting.

Just waiting for hot flashes, night sweats or any other tell-tale sign that the estrogen is departing my body in a hurry. So far, all I'm feeling is tired and occasionally dizzy, and that is not definitive enough for me. I want to FEEL that I'm kicking this cancer where it lives.

Perhaps I should just be grateful that I'm feeling well (and I'm sure when symptoms do kick in I will wish myself right back where I am right now) but I'm ready to feel something, anything that tells me we are gaining some ground.

After so much activity and lots of news in such a short period of time, I think I am going to have trouble adjusting to this waiting period. Three months with no progress reports, feedback or status is going to seem like three years.

Thanks for waiting with me and keeping me afloat.

The hot flashes are waiting for me to get there! Your temper is waiting for your "wingman" to get there! I will be there soon and then we can kick some cancer butt!

Hi Suzanne,

Sharon Mulkeen from St. Rita School shared your news with me. I then talked to Tina Pult (always good to go stratight to a good source) who directed me to your blog. I am sorry that I did not see your blog sooner. It is wonderful to see how your family has grown. I just wanted to let you know that I truly believe that miracles do happen and that I am praying every day for yours. Let your seven little angels guide you through the tough times and keep your spirits lifted. I wish a Blessed Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Love,
Laurie Ambrosini

Lit a candle for you last night, my unmet friend. Having the faith you do, I know you will overcome this. My dear friend was told about 12 years ago her cancer had recurred and spread and to 'go home and make end of life arrangements'. She was so busy LIVING, she's still with us today and the doctor isn't.

When you feel a personal power surge coming on, grab an ice pop! They have been great help to several of us ladies of a certain age in dealing with the warm glow.

Hi Suzanne; Happy Thanksgiving. Through this whole chapter it's obvious that you have so much to be thankful for and the most beautiful thing is that you KNOW that. You've always known that and every day since the first day I met you - I've admired that about you. I am waiting and praying with you. Love, Maura
