Live each day as if it was your last.

Sorry fellow sisters that I have not posted.

As you can tell I did not receive the surgery and I am not going to get the sugery. I was supposed to have a total pelvic extenertion on 4/16/04, however after being put under and opened up the docs discovered that the tumor had so far that it was now affecting my bones, nerves and my blood vessels; and to do the surgery would be for vanities sake only.

The doc came out spoke to my husband who then relayed this news to my family. By the end of that conversation everyone was either in tears and stinkin' mad.


Then I had to weigh all this on my mind so that I could make a decision regarding what I was going to do and how I was going to tell my kids. Of course they already knew what had happened. You see if the doc had gone through the surgery my recovery time was really really long, in fact it would oulast me. All the docs did was take out my ovaries. The pain was awful and yes, it is its a blessing to have all these great drugs to help you through the rough roads, I needed.

Everyone cried, got angry.............well, some of you know the rest. The most painful part of this was telling my kids.

The doc said in a nutshell is that I am dealing with a couple of months left to live so now I am going to enjoy what time I do have left with my wonderful husband and my beautiful children. So I am still not going to give up fighting, but I am also not going to sit around and wait for life to happen either. I am going down fighting.

I love all you faceless beauties. I will continue to come to this website and meet all the new members and counsel them any way I can. And if any of you know of a website that deals with the terminal side of thing I would be forevergrateful.

Thank you again HysterSisters.

Live each day as if it was your last.

You have always been in my thoughts and prayers; obviously I prayed your long silence meant better news than you've conveyed .

My prayers continue with you and your family, for courage, and for pain-free time to be able to spend with your loved ones.

If you've been in touch with (((MariaCoo))) and her DH, is there any way that you can communicate through them, or through someone else here, how your journey continues? It is so important to spend this time with your loved ones and we understand not being able to post. However, it would be wonderful to know that we had some way of getting messages to you as well, and passing on our prayers.

I don't know where Orangevale is, but if there is anything I can do, let me know.

You have a luminous spirit that comes through your posts; even through the pain, your soul is coming through your words. When you're feeling up to it, sharing here (maybe in the new Journals area, where you wouldn't feel compelled to respond to everyone) will continue to help those who follow us here.

Big s to you. I have been wondering how it all went...

Live each day as if it was your last.

Dear Forgen,

In the midst of your sorrow you have thought of sharing an important message with everyone here. I have been following your story for the last few months, and my heart is very heavy now.

I can only say that I am glad you are going to live each day that comes to you to the fullest and best you can -- something we should all remember to do.

Thank you for taking the time and energy to remind us--
I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

(I have taken the liberty of forwarding your post to Adrie, so Maria will know what is happening).

Live each day as if it was your last.

Dear Forgen,

I'm so just isn't fair. I too had hoped that your lack of writing was a sort of "no news is good news thing."

I firmly believe in a life beyond this one, a life that is the goal and fulfillment of this one. We're all running the same track towards it. Some people cross the finish line ahead of others. But the "finish" line only finishes the first part of the journey, and is the beginning of a new one that will eventually reunite us all in a life that knows no ending and that is total joy.

So I will keep you in my prayers and also ask my community to pray for you and your husband and family. Thanks for continuing to think of us with your wise words. We will understand if you don't get a lots of chances to write--your DH and family are first priority--but you know that we'll welcome any message from you.

And yes, continue to fight. No matter what the drs say, no matter what the statistics, the timetable is God's, and He won't call you home one moment before it's HIS time. So keep on fighting.

Blessings. And deep peace.

Dear Forgen,

You are a wonderful person to share with all of us. Enjoy every minute with your family and friends. Remember one thing though, only God knows when he will take you. There have been so many miracles. Believing in miracles is not a bad thing. You and your family are in my thoughts.
