Re: Prayers For Sheila

Thanks Mom for getting on here and posting your own update. As you can see I've been holding down the Her2 fort as best as I could but I am sure your "family" on here are glad to hear from you. Do what the doctors tell you and get better because you we all need you!!!! Get some rest and I'll talk you later.

Love,
Jennifer

Re: Prayers For Sheila

Sheila,
I can't believe how quickly things happen. We just talked over the weekend and then boom. You are an amazing warrior.

Can't imagine what you and your family have been through in the last week. Glad you are on the road to recovery.

Thanks Pinkgirl for letting me know. We are on the road and out of touch at times.

Continued prayers are coming your way dear friend.

Re: Prayers For Sheila

Hi Adriana thank you for your prayers. Mom is being discharged from the hospital today so I'll let her take it from here. I only post on here for her when she isn't able to herself because I know how important you guys are to each other. As a family member of a her2 survivor I am greatful to all of you for your love, prayers and encouragement you have given to my Mom and I am happy to be able to continue to share her with all of you.

Welcome back, Sheila. Have you figured out (you said you couldn't remember...) what had 'upset' you so in that meeting?

Re: Prayers For Sheila

I haven't been able to be online for awhile, so just read these posts today with a heavy heart, tears and prayers at first, then joy as I read all 5 pages, and knew things are better. Thank you so much, Jen, for keeping us informed, and Thank you, Sheila, for letting us know you are better. If you had any doubt how much you are loved, you should know it now. You are one of my heroes--in fact as I finally felt well enough today to get on the site, my first thought was to ask you about how halaven is working for you, as I have now had to stop my third chemo try. I will post an update separately. I am praying with the others here that you will make a full recovery and bounce back again. You are such an inspiration! Hugs, TriciaK

Re: Prayers For Sheila

Sheila, sorry you had to miss the excitement of the helicopter ride. Although it is probably more fun over the grand canyon. Seriously I was so worried and am relieved. Jen has been wonderful to keep your "other" family in the loop. We love you too, you know. Glad you are back home, take good care and follow all orders to speed your recovery.
Those doctor didn't know they were dealing with YOU and the power of prayer. Much much love my friend

Re: Prayers For Sheila

Sheila I am so relieved and happy! When I came out of the hospital I just intended to look if everybody was OK and saw Jen's post. I put in a small word for you but I was so upset and down that this was happening to you. It seemed so unfair. I thought of you all time. I just can't stand the idea of you with a breathing tube. I will post later but I wanted to tell you that your recovery brought back a big smile on my face. Michka
