Not for me, for a very dear friend.
Petrina, my best friend's (and Best Man's) wife has just been told she has ovarian cancer. Tests are in full swing, and a hysterectomy is currently scheduled for the 28th (Her Birthday, God help us!)
To add to her problems, like me, she has already lost a lung. Not to cancer in that case, but it aint going to help.
Sheila & I are offering all the support we can give but feel totally helpless.

She shares a birthday with me. It can be helpful if she and the rest of you can focus on the outcome you wish for, i.e. visualise her after surgery, full of energy, healthy and doing the things she loves to do. I have a set of visualisation tapes I used pre-heart surgery and immediately following. If you think she would be into that and would like to have them, PM me an addy and I will mail them out asap. My surgeon made sure they put the headphones on and played them for me as soon as I was sent to recovery. They REALLY helped.

Another thing which has helped, one woman healed completely from this, is to watch as many funny movies, etc. as possible, as laughter, I kid you not:-), has a healing effect.

Lots of hugs and energy coming you way.

hugs and light from Massachusetts.

Where are you? I find it easier to visualize if I have some reference point.

ck the thread about songs for funerals and HEALING. Forget the funeral part. There are great songs listed there that are comforting and uplifting. Sing them to yourself, sing them to your friend. That's what got me through a bad patch. Make a tape for her like Rita did for me, or ask Rita (ferrara) for her tape! (cd now?). Carly also made a tape for me with input from a bunch of people, maybe get her friends together and all of you make a tape or cd for her!

I'm an idiot. forget the reference to the thread - i'll quit being lazy and list some, and maybe others will do the same. Too bad Susan Hill's songs aren't in the data base - she writes the most comforting songs I've ever heard. Some of Rita's choices: Come to the Bower [SP?}, Turning toward Morning (Bok), the one about friends in the kitchen and the trumpet vine(bok?), skye boat song, mockingbird Hill is amazingly comforting (at least with Rita singing it!), Rose of Allendale, Children of the Heavenly Father. Friendship songs are good. I don't know about your friend, but I think "forget your troubles come on get happy" songs are dreadful and depressing when you have something real to deal with, and I'd leave out funny songs, or make another one of just funny songs for when she's in the mood. I'm sure you can think of more! Help out, mudcatters?

Have just lost my father to cancer... two primary cancers. He got over the one in June 06 - had it removed. Me and t'other half got married in the September last year, and by Christmas dad was ill again. He died a few weeks ago, this time small cell cancer of the lung. It's a hard time, and wouldn't wish a loved one with cancer on anyone. Traumatic for all involved, stay strong, stay together and cherish each day each moment. Take each day for what you have and most of all find some strength to remain ever positive. Cos sometimes there is a happy ending for some.

My thoughts are with you.

He has pancreatitis and now he's having difficulty breathing (2 weeks on oxygen pipes will do that), so all sorts of scans and things are happening.

Positive news from Petrina yesterday, tests indicate that the cancer is contained in her Womb and has not spread to other parts. We know that the situation is still not good, but at least there appears to be a chance that they can get it all in one go.
She goes in on the 25th with surgery planned for the 26th, so thankfully not now on her Birthday. She will go straight into a High Dependency Ward because of the lung problem.
Thanks from all of us for the support and good wishes received.

I was diagnosed with cancer of the womb three years ago. They took me in for a total hysterectomy three days after diagnosis. Tests showed that the cancer had been contained within the womb and I didn't need any further treatment.

It's most lilkely, for Petrina, that they will want to gop in the traditional way, via an incision into the abdomen, so that they can look around while they're removing the womb. That will mean a longer recovery and convalescent time but means that they can do a more thorough job of getting rid of any cancer that is there.

Petrina will need to take it very easy for quite a while and, even after recovery, may need to take heed of the fact that there are large internal scars. I overexercised and have ended up with an incisional hernia as a result.

Please send her lots of love and good wishes from me - I hope that all goes well.

Op was carried out on Monday last, and appears to have been a total success (fingers crossed), S went to see her on Thursday and she was walking about, although in some discomfort. With a following wind she should now be back home.
We will give them a ring tonight and hopefully see them later in the week. John looked a lot happier on Thursday afternoon when he and Petrina's Mum (89) called in for a cup of tea!

Spoke to Petrina on the 'phone yesterday. She came home on Friday last and has made her first excursion into the outside world (walked to the post box at the corner of the street). She says the pavements feel very hard at the moment,
She is due to see her surgeon on Friday 13th April!!!!! for an update.
She is very upbeat about the situation, and is currently expecting to be told that they got everything at once, and no further treatment will be necessary.
John is currently doing all the housework! John is a big, bearded rugby player with hands like shovels!
She sends her love to you all and says that it was really heartening to realise that there was so much support out there when she went in for the op.
I figure we need one more push to get past Friday the 13th.
I will be seeing her over the weekend, and hope to get her laughing like I usually do. She has the most low-down dirty laugh you could ever wish to hear.
Thanks to you all

Hi and special {{{{{{{{{Hugs from Miskin man}}}}}}}}}}.

We have never met but we all breath the same air, and have the same loves and fears. But we can also now share a great hope for the future.

Saw Petrina for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. She is in good form and managing to get out for a short walk every day whilst we are having this pleasant spell of spring weather.
John confides that they are still very concerned about the check up on Friday, and he is expecting Thursday to be a pretty awful day.
However, she looks fine, as beautiful as ever, and still retains her sense of humour.
This one is worth sharing.
As we were about to leave I said 'And remember, no Morris Dancing for at least six weeks!'
She then told us the tale of her brother in law, Mike, who somehow last year managed to have a Maypole fall on him. As she said, it sounds funny, but he cracked two ribs so he wasn't laughing much at the time.
However, this being too good to waste, they e-mailed him as The Society for the Prevention of Abuse to Maypoles (SPAM) advising him that they had been informed that he had attacked one of their installations by hitting it with his ribs in an aggressive manner.
This year they are writing to him as SPAM, Committee for the Rehabilitation of Adult Perpetrators (CRAP) enclosing a stick with four loose bells and instructions on remedial therapy to remove aggressive behaviour towards Maypoles:-
1) Hold stick in right hand
2) Extend hand above head.
3) Shake stick in air. You will observe that this makes no sound and probably makes you feel quite silly.
4) As soon as you have overcome the feeling of being silly and mastered the technique of stick shaking,remove stick from above head,
5) Attach first bell to stick with ribbon provided
6) Repeat steps 1 to 4
7) Attach second bell
8) Repeat steps 1 to 4
9) Attach third bell
10) Repeat steps 1 to 4
11) Attach fourth bell
12) repeat steps 1 to 3. At this point you should feel fully in tune with the Maypole tradition and will have set aside all your aggressive tendencies.
Alternatively you might feel inclined to go out and attack the nearest Maypole with an axe!

I think this could run & run

Brian - I remember quite clearly the suspense of waiting to see the oncologist after they removed my cancerous womb. There had been a lot of argument between my son and my daughter as to who I should stay with if I need radiotherapy to remove all traces of the cancer - both felt that they had the best hospital close by to do the job.

My daughter came with me to the oncology appointment and, when the specialist told us that the cancer had only got part way across the womb and I wouldn't need any further treatment, my daughter just broke down and cried. That started me off and, when a nurse came into the room and saw us the oncologist had to explain that they were tears of happiness.

that cancer showed me how many good friends I had and brought home to me how much my children loved me.

I hope that Petrina's diagnosis is all clear on Friday.

Petrina rang last evening about 6.45 Uk time.
Her surgeon greeted her with the words 'I have nothing but good news for you'
The biopsy on the removed organs at Christies had proved that the tumour had not spread outside the womb, and no further treatment will be necessary.
We are all so relieved and thankful that it is over. It is just two months since the first diagnosis.
S & I have, in 30 years of marriage lost six friends to cancer. but it seems that, for once, with your help, we have slain the Jabberwock!
Calooh, Callay, Oh frabjeous day, the sun is shining, the Saturday papers have come and coffee is prepared in the summerhouse. If you will all excuse me I think I will go out for a galumph!

We are all soooo relieved to be on the right side of this problem. Once again, Petrina sends her thanks for all the support. there were times when she really felt she needed it!
A little surreal humour, to prove that all in NHS uk is not completely black.
P reports that when she had had her pre-med and was lying feeling woozy waiting to go down to the theatre, these two guys came in and said 'Mrs Crosby, permit us to introduce ourselves, I am your surgeon and this is your aneasthetist. We want to assure you that you will have the best possible care!'
As she said, the blue overalls should have been a give away, but she was off with the fairies anyway, so, a surgeon on trolley duty? Money is tight in the NHS!
Then he said ' We have never actually done this operation before, but we've read all the text books this morning and have a fairly good idea of how it should go.
At this point the penny dropped, and, as she says' I thought, what the hell, if you are going to die, you might as well die laughing.'
Now you see why we love her!

great news, now for a good, long, perfect healing of incisions etc. No rushing it!

Decades ago a friend was 1 day off going back to work after the same surgery & strained her wound by carrying a 2 litre bottle of fruit juice from car to kitchen! So watch those fruit juices, they're dangerous!

(Hazel, sorry I missed your request re' coloured text. Just put in < font color= gold > without any of the spaces and it should work, although it is better to use the number for the color rather than the name, which I don't have handy at the moment.:-) When you have typed your text, be sure to enter < /font > also without the spaces to turn that feature off.)

Christmas update
Saw Petrina today and she is looking great, although currently worried about her Mum, in hospital at 92 having had problems with fitting a pacemaker.
Looks like she won't be home for Christmas, though as S & I said it is possibly no bad thing!
P sends her love to all, as do Sheila & I

Merry Christmas (or Whatever!)

Only if they generate simple HTML commands for "font color". You can craft them by hand easily, though.

An "applet" is a tiny application, usually Java code.
