Lynn and all, I am new to SP and this group. In reading these posts about your losing Kirk
and the responses from other Sparkies, I am grateful that this forum is here and that you
are allowing others to reach out to you. I do pray that you will be comforted and strengthened today and in the days ahead and that there will be new friends who can tangibly minister to you during this very difficult time. Blessings....

Thanks Brenda, glad to be back as well. With my brace on, it is not so hard to sit at the computer, but still can't sit too long. Just glad to be able to keep up a bit with all of you.

Not much to report here, but all is well.

God Bless and take good care of all of you my friends.

MNJones,

I'm sorry to hear about your familie's loss, 27 is too young.

Lynn,

You have the strength to do what needs to be done and you will make the right decisions. This is a very hard time to have to do everything. You will perservere.

Bonnie,

I'm glad to see you back on the boards--they have been very empty without your cheery messages.

Hi Lynn I hope you are having a good day today. Yes, I joined about 3 weeks ago, things are going kind of slow for me in the weight loss department but I have confidence that it will all come together. My life is a little different then most as I can every possible vegetable and fruit I can get my hands on. I have been doing this for almost 40 years it gives me a sense of self sufficiency. My days are full of gardening and taking care of the many flower beds, but now canning is my top concern. Tomorrow I have to start my sauerkraut that will take some time I have about 20 heads of cabbage to do.

Lynn make sure you take care of yourself and your husband. God is watching over you.

Please remember to take care of yourself during this time, it is so easy to forget that you also need nourishment and fluids during the day. We want you to stay healthy during this time of need. May God bless you and watch over you and your husband.

Hello, I started with Sparkpeople August 16 and set up a strength fitness program to do 3x a week. I have about 60 lbs to lose but my doctor and I wanted to start out small and build so he gave me a goal of losing 10lbs by September 30. So far I've lost 2lbs and kept it off using my Nutrition tracker everyday. I also brought my diabetes bg down from an average of 340 to 149. I have a lot of physical problems and live in chronic pain 24/7. I really want to do the fitness program but to be absolutely honest I haven't done even 1 day of the program because of pain AND pure laziness. I'm not usually a whimp and before I got sick 6 years ago I went to the gym 4 to 5 tiimes a week. I know I need to do this program in order to get my very atrophied muscles going again. I would appreciate your prayers and if someone is willing to send me a e-mail on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to keep me accountable I would be very, very grateful. I live by myself and don't have too many friends (they all dwindled away when I got sick). Anyway thanks for taking the time to read my post. God Bless

Oh Lynn, I haven't been sparking much this past week and have only just read your terribly sad news. I am so very sorry about your DH. I am sending all the most positive vibes your way and wishing you and your DH the very best. Please stay strong girlfriend.

Hi All,

The news is not good from here. The MRI showed 2 tumors on my dh's spine near his neck. They are cancer and they can't use radiation because he is at the limit from his cancer on his neck. They also found it in his lung and a few other places. Tomorrow he has a scope and biopsy of the lung and another MRI. We talked to the neurosurgeon and he will probably operate to remove the 2 tumors that are putting pressure on the nerves that are giving him pain. There is not a cure he said. Tomorrow we will find out if it can be managed with chemo.

Thanks for your support. Since we have only lived here since last month we don't have a church yet and don't really know anyone. My dear friend from Mpls is flying here tonight to be with me. I am so glad. I know that all my sp friends are with me too. Lynn

It's understandable to want to turn to a comfort that is just a wrapper away. I should know. Especially in a situation of extreme stress as what you are dealing with. But what I've been thinking lately, how much is it going to take to fill me up? I'm reading all the hints and tips that others have shared, turn to those over the next few days and let those words of encouragement and other options be part of the support you need during this difficult time. Be a friend to yourself.
You and your husband are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.

Lynn,

I can only imagine what a scary time this is for you and your husband. I hope you both are surrounded by people who love and care for you. God ministers to us through others, so if you need and want to, ask for help from the social work service, a chaplain, etc. Better yet, if you have a local congregation you are part of, I hope you feel free to call them.

I'm lifting you both up to the Almighty God (I call God, Papa). May God's peace be upon you.

I can only imagine what you are going through. I'm sorry that you are having so much to deal with right now. My prayers are with you and your husband. Hope for the best and maybe the doctors will find out what the problem is and have a solution for you and your husband. Hang in there and don't eat your feelings. You need to take care of yourself right now so that you can take care of your husband. Remind yourself of that every day. Stay strong and endure! emoticon emoticon

I took my dh to the ER yesterday. He has had a sore shoulder for a couple of months. We went to the walkin clinic 2 weeks ago and they gave him pain meds. He has his 1st appt with his new dr this Thurs. He started coughing up blood yesterday so I brought him in to the ER. They can't find anything wrong with his shoulder but they found a mass on his lung. It's the size of an orange. They don't know if it's cancer again (he has had it twice) or a blood clot or TB. He is in isolation and everyone has to wear masks. They are giving him codeine for pain every few hours. He is having a MRI today. He had CT scan last night. I am really worried because it is 2 major things (that seem unrelated) at once. Anyway, I will only be on here hit or miss for a few days. I am doing my best not to eat my feelings! Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks, Lynn
