This Is a Post

Maybe. The net has been off and on - mostly off. I'll try to get this at least drafted so Tim can send it out if necessary.

My daughter Carol is in the hospital. I can't tell you much right now because I don't know much but the cancer may have come back and spread. We took her in to the emergency room yesterday and they kept her. She's pretty doped up right now. I talked to her and she said to come over and then called right back and said don't. She'll try to call when she knows the doctor is coming in and maybe I can find out more. She said she overheard something she probably wasn't supposed to but the word kidney was mentioned.

I've been reluctant to write too much about Carol except to say that she's her own worst enemy and there's not a lot I can do about a 50 year old woman who refuses to do what's necessary to get well. Right now I'm torn between sorrow and anger and I think she's all but given up.

For those of you who pray, please add Carol (and the rest of us) to your list.

I haven't been able to read much of your email/comments because the net wouldn't stay operational. This is the best it's done for a couple of days.

Thanking you anyway right here for your support and your love. If I can post this I'll try to get back and read the comments. Forgive me if I don't respond for right now or try to read too many blogs. We're all up in the air right now.

Take care everyone. I'll get back (or Tim will) when we can. I'll probably add him to the team so he can write under his own name.

Oh Ann, I am so sorry about your daughter. I hope that perhaps she can get some of her fighting spirit back.

Prayers winging their way up north...

Dear Ann, please know I am praying for you and your family, I feel very sad for you all and hope there will be a positive outcome for Carol. God Bless Margaret

Oh God.

I'm praying, Ann, hard. I'm so sorry. If I had the power, I promise...

Email/IM me if or whenever you want. I'll be sending a email to you now, and I'm here (apart from 20 mins at around 1pm when I'll be returning a DVD) for the next five or so hours.

I'll call you tonight (my night, your mid morning, I think?), if I can. I should've been paid and be able to put some extra credit on my phone. If you're there and able/want to talk, great. If not I'll leave a message and at least you'll know I've tried.

Things look black right now, but you have many friends here including me who care about you a great deal. And they'll all be praying.

I'm thinking of you.

*hugs* xxx

I will most definitely be keeping your daughter and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry you are having to go through this, esp. with all you're already dealing with.

Here's hoping for a happy outcome.

LoisLane said...

Lots of hugs and prayers for all of you.

stefanierj said...

You're always in my prayers anyway, but special ones today. And big hugs to you, too. MWAH.

Autumn said...

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. Pleaes know that my thoughts are with you all.

DellaB said...

Ann, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter, it sounds like all you CAN do is to be there for her, and sometimes that is what is really needed.

Please don't worry about 'us' - we know you are there too.

Cancer is evil. I am sorry that your family and your daughter is having to deal with it. I will say a prayer, and hope your daughter can be positive, (or angry) or whatever she needs to be to BEAT this.

thordora said...

I'm sorry Ann. You shouldn't have to watch that.

Mary P. said...

Oh, Ann. I'm so sorry. It's painful to watch someone who just won't help themselves. I hope the doctors can do their thing, at any rate, and set her as right as possible (even without her cooperation!).

Hugs.

Badoozie said...

sometimes...nothing makes sense, or nothing seems fair. i'm saying a prayer right now

Ingrid said...

what else can I say but to give you a virtual hug! I can understand your feelings and hopefully you'll soon have an answer as to what it is. All the best to you and your husband,
HUGS!!
