    Glad your doing better

    Hey Em,

    I am really glad that you are getting better. Hope you can get a job, but I can be a little selfish and hope you come back here to go to school, I will get to see you again :D. Well you have a little while before having to go though all that icky stuff again, have some fun while your are felling good!!

    Love and Hugs to you,
    Jess

    Your well being is all for now

    I love peeling off sunburnt skin, dont suppose your skin is peeling like that? Do you require wound care or is it surface skin? Are you independent while convalescing or do you have nurse care?

    It worries me to hear your obligations to 'working' versus, taking care of yourself with out adding the stress of classes, assignments, deadlines, or even teaching and grading....

    I think you have got to take it real easy, lay low, get your strength and do EVERYTHING you have ever wished to do but couldnt because you didnt have 'time' to. I think so spiritually sometimes that I see a bigger picture to your 'treatments' as being time, time for you to reflect, judge, value your life and do what you may have not had time for.

    Just a thought. I just wanted to know my thoughts are with you. Feel better, maybe its time for another care package!:D

    Hi Emily! I just today found out about your situation, so I'm sorry I missed praying for you during your hospital stays! But I can sure pray now! :) I hope all is well! Don't forget to keep us posted! As school starts for everyone, things will get busier and I know that I won't be on here as much as I am during the summer, but just know that you're still in our thoughts and prayers--even if we're not "posting" as much as before! Take care of yourself!

    Hi folks... time for an update. :)

    I went back for tests beginning of this week, and talked to my oncologist yesterday... good news is that my cancer hasn't spread further, bad news is it hasn't gotten any smaller...

    So, long and short of it is, I got back in all over again on the 22nd... since that's my birthday, that's not a very good present if you ask me! Oh well, gotta do what you gotta do... guess it's a good thing I don't have my own classroom right now... I'd hate to leave my kids with a sub for that long! My job is bad enough having to leave them. :)

    What a great attitude you have! I'm sorry that you have to endure more treatment, but one day you will be thankful you did all you had to do. God bless you.

    I'm sorry that you didn't get all good news. You have been in my thoughts and prayers all summer. I hope since the growth of the cancer has been stopped, this next round of treatment will start shrinking it. Keep your spirits up. Someday some lucky children will have you for their teacher. Good wishes are coming your way from Newfoundland.

    I made it, 13/14 doeses... I swear they're gotta be some kryptonite in me since I'm practically superwoman! :-D

    They've finally started giving my nausa and diharreah meds, etc. around the clock to stop the symptoms, so that helps... course, I go in and KNOW i'll be sick, so i was throwing up MOnday just from being there, yuck!

    Good news is I'm feeling better already, and will probably go to work Wed-Fri. :)

    You people write to much! I have 66 messages to keep up with. :-D lol

    It is really good to see you back Em. Hope things get better by the minute.

    I hardly know you, but you must be an amazing person to have the deep respect of so many people on here.

    I'm back, get to enjoy myself for a while now... the week in was rougher, but my side effects once I've been out haven't been nearly as bad. I ususally can't slleo the first 2 nights I'm out, and I slept petty osundly last night, so that's a WONDERFUL sign.

    Now back to work. :-D and normal life until more tests ...
