NEVER GIVE UP EVEN WHEN YOU CAN NOT SEE ALIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

FIRST OF ALL LET ME TELL EVERYONE I AM NOT THE MOST RELIGIOUS PERSON IN THE WORLD BY NO MEANS. BUT IN LATE JANUARY OR EARLY FEBUARY OF 2012 MY WORLD CAME CRASHING IN WHEN MY HUSBAND THE LOVE OF MY LIFE GOT SICK. AFTER 3 BAD MARRIAGES I HAVE FINALLY FOUND MY TRUE LOVE AND HE TAKES VERY GOOD CARE OF ME. HE WAS TRAVELING AT THE TIME WITH HIS JOB AND HE CAME HOME REAL SICK SO I TOOK HIM TO OUR LOCAL HOSPITAL. THE DOCTORS THERE ADMITTED HIM AND HAD TO DO A COMPLETE BLOOD TRANSFUSION ON HIM. THEY DID NOT TELL US AT THE TIME BUT THEY CALLED A CANCER DOCTOR BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT HE WAS TAKING CHEMO AND WAS LYING TO THEM BECAUSE HE HAD NO WHITE CELLS OR IMMUNE SYSTEM. AFTER A FEW DAYS THERE HE WAS ALLOWED TO COME HOME AND WE HAD TO GO BACK TO THE CANCER DOCTOR. NOW KEEP IN MIND AS OF YET CANCER HAD NOT BEEN MENTION TO US AT ALL. THEY KEPT SAYING THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG AND THE CANCER DOCTOR WAS ALSO A BLOOD EXPERT. SO WE WENT TO THE CANCER DOCTOR AND HE DONE WHAT IS CALLED A BONE MARROW TEST AND SENT US HOME. WELL WITH NO NEW INFORMATION MY HUSBAND AND MY SON LEFT TO GO BACK OUT OF TOWN TO WORK THE NEXT DAY. MY DAUGHTER WAS HOME WITH ME BECAUSE I AM DISABLE WHEN I GOT THE PHONE CALL FROM CANCER DOCTOR. HE ASKED ME WHERE MY HUSBAND WAS AND I TOLD HIM HE WAS HEADING OUT OF TOWN TO GO BACK TO WORK AND HE SAID WE HAD TO GET BACK HOME AND WHEN I ASKED WHY HE TOLD ME HE HAD ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA AND MYELOID DYPLASTIC SYNDROME WHICH IS CANCER. WELL I DO NOT KNOW TO MUCH AFTER HEARING THAT OTHER THAN I WENT INTO A SEIZURE AND MY DAUGHTER HAD TO FINISH TALKING TO THE DOCTOR. SHE HAD TO GROW UP REAL QUICK AND CALL MY SON AND TELL HIM TO GET MY HUSBAND BACK HOME BECAUSE HE HAD CANCER AND HAD TO GO BACK TO THE DOCTOR AND HOSPITAL. WELL WE WENT TO THE BEST HOSPITAL HERE IN OUR STATE AND WE WERE TOLD HIS LEUKEMIA WAS ALREADY SO BAD THEY WERE NOT ABE TO DO ANYTHING BECAUSE HE HAD SO MUCH INFECTION IN HIS BODY THE CHEMO WOULD KILL HIM AND SO WOULD A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT. WE LEFT THERE DEVASTATED WE CALLED OUR 11 KIDS AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY AND TOLD THEM WHAT WAS SAID AND A BUNCH OF PRAYER CHAINS WERE STARTED RIGHT THEN. WE WENT BACK TO THE CANCER DOCTOR THAT HAD SENT US UP TO THE HOSPITAL AND HE SAID NO THERE WAS SOMETHING HE WANTED TO DO BUT FIRST MY HUSBAND HAD TO HAVE ALL HIS TEETH PULLED BECAUSE HE HAD A LOT OF ABSCESSES DUE TO ALL OF THE INFECTION. WELL WITH HIM BEING OUT OF WORK WE DID NOT KNOW HOW WE WERE GOING TO PAY FOR THAT AND THE NEXT THING WE KNOW MY PARENTS SMALL CHURCH OF ABOUT 100 PEOPLE TOOK P A LOVE OFFERING OF ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS TO HAVE HIS TEETH DONE, THEN THE DOCTOR STARTED HIM ON A SMALL AMOUNT OF CHEMO. THEN HE GOT SICKER AND HAD TO HAVE A SECOND BLOOD TRANSFUSION AND THEY GAVE 3 MONTHS AND I TOLD HIS FAMILY BECAUSE THEY ALL LIVE IN ANOTHER STATE AND THEY CAME OVER AND HE WAS DOING REALLY BAD. WE WERE MAKING PLANS THAT I DID NOT WANT TO BE MAKING. BUT THEN WE GOT A BETTER REPORT FROM THE DOCTOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK HIS BLOOD COUNT HAD STARTED BUILDING SO THEY STARTED CHEMO AGAIN AND HE TOOK ALL TOGETHER 26 TREATMENTS. DURING THIS WHOLE TIME WE HAD NO MEDICAL INSURANCE AND WE WERE HAVING TO DO FUND RAISERS, DONATIONS FROM COMPANIES,FAMILY,FRIENDS AND THE CANCER SOCIETY. WE HAD SO MANY PEOPLE WE KNEW AND COMPLETE STRANGERS PRAYING FOR HIM AND EVEN THE CANCER DOCTOR TOLD US WE NEEDED MIRACLE FOR HIM TO PULL THROUGH ALL OF THIS AND TO LEAD A NORMAL OR CLOSE TO NORMAL LIFE. WELL WE GOT OUR MIRACLE JUST THIS PAST WEEK WE WERE TOLD HE WAS STARTING IN REMISSION FROM THIS CANCER AND THE ONLY SIDE EFFECTS SO FAR HE IS HAVING A LITTLE SORENESS IN HIS CALVES MUSCLES AND HIS RIGHT ARM. I KNOW HE IS NOT COMPLETELY HEALED BUT CLOSE ENOUGH NO MORE CHEMO NO CANCER BEING SEEN. SO I AM HERE TO TELL YOU NEVER GIVE UP BECAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS A LIGHT AT THE END OF ANY TUNNEL AND GOD WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY IF YOU WILL JUST ASK HIM AND LET HIM LEAD YOU BECAUSE YOU CAN NOT DO IT BY YOURSELF.................... emoticon

    What an inspiring story. I am sorry that your family had to go through this. God is always there for us. My husband went through bladder and prostate cancer. His recovery is not going as smoothly as the doctor hoped. He now has kidney disease and always in pain. He can no longer work and that makes him depressed that he can't take care of his family. But we both know that the Lord has a reason for the things that we are going through right now.

I wish you and your family all the best. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    emoticon My Prayers are with you and your family! Just remember what the Bible says in Matthew 17:20 Amen, I say to you, if you have the faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,"move from here to there," and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
This is something I have always truly believed. And as a Registered Nurse with 38 years experience, I can say it is so true. I have seen so many miracles over my years, when all hope was suppose to be gone.

Friday, October 05, 2012

I HAVE BEEN EATING A LOT HEALTHIER, SLEEPING MORE, EXERCISING MORE ESPECIALLY ON THE WII FIT, WALKING, DOING YOGA AND TRYING THE EXERCISING ON SOME OF THE SPARK VIDEOS AND I HAVE STARTED LOSING WEIGHT. WHEN I WENT TO THE DOCTOR I HAD LOST 4 LBS. AND I KNOW THATS NOT MUCH BUT THATS MORE THAN I HAVE LOST IN A YEAR USUALLY I HAD GAINED WEIGHT. I FELT SO GOOD ABOUT MYSELF AND I TOLD THE NURSE I JOINED SPARK PEOPLE AND SHE KNEW ABOUT THE PROGRAM AND SHE SAID KEEP IT UP BECAUSE IT WILL WORK. I AM TRYING TO GET SOME OF MY FRIENDS TO JOIN BUT THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IT YET BUT I WILL PROVE TO THEM BECAUSE NOW SINCE I AM LOSING WEIGHT I GOT TO LEARN TO TIGHTEN UP MY MUSCLES WHERE I GOT SO BIG, BUT I WILL DO IT FIRST I WANT TO LOSE A LITTLE MORE WEIGHT. I AM SO GLAD I FOUND SPARK PEOPLE AND MADE THE FIRST STEP TO JOIN BECAUSE I WAS SO READY TO JUST GIVE UP AND SAY FORGET IT AND NOW I AM PUMPED AND READY TO DO IT. LET'S GO AND DO THIS TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
