  • making some very difficult decisions

    I debated on if I should even post this or not. Another hard decision. I think the only reason I chose to was Michelle's Post just to show her things could be worse (I love ya Shell) On February 7th I took my son to school and had a heart attack on the way home. I was able to drive myself to the hospital although to this day I don't remember how. I was given Nitro pills and Paste and the pain went away but my breathing was real bad. I had x-rays and a CT. They found I have Pulmonary Emboli in my right lung. Long story short, it seems I have cancer that had caused clots to break off and get to my lungs. The cancer had spread into my Lymph nodes. I consider myself lucky because the clots will probably kill me before the cancer can. I have made most of my arrangements, the hardest being the ones involving the younger children. We have moved my oldest daughter back from NC to help me and my older sons will be arriving soon. I do not know how long I have. I asked not to know. I am ok and I have made my peace. I feel good some days and hard to breathe others but I have decided to live what is left of my life talking about a future and I wake up each day only asking for just one more. So Michelle, it can be worse. Live your life like there is no tomorrow. I pray for you each and every day and hope you get your kidneys. I know you will, good people like you deserve them.
    I have been working on scrap books for the kids and I hope I can get them done but I am also writing journals for all the girls to read on special days in their lives. So much to do and time? Who knows. I want to be here in the fall when Emily starts pre-school. That is my last goal. I don't plan on leaving SBM until I can't sit at my computer anymore
    My husband is having a hard time with this and we haven't explained the extent of my illness to the children. Hard to do when you have FaceBook and ppl asking you all the time so I lie . This is by no means Goodbye. Not yet. I will decide when I am ready!

    I don't know how to respond Liz! Just sitting here stunned! I am soooo sorry and just don't know what to say! I will be praying for you and yours. If you need help with your scrapbook, I can help. You can email me some of your pix and I will turn them into pages.
    Your buddy, Marion

      I'll be giving my kids an extra kiss tonight for sure. You'll be in my thoughts even though I don't think we have ever really interacted. I hope you fill your days with happy thoughts and make some great memories for your children. They will remember your strength and grace with which you seem to be handling this.

        Oh wow Liz, I pop in here once in a while and sure didn't expect to find this thread. I can't imagine what you are going through. Making the scrapbooks and journals for the kids is a great idea. But, please make sure you take care of yourself too, the best that you can.

                    Maybe we can take this on as a project and help you with your scrapbooks. I am sure there are many here that would be willing to help. Just let us know what we can do to help, and in the meantime, you are in our prayers.

                      Oh Liz!! I am so shocked and can hardly compose myself. This is the last thing I was expecting to read. You know I have been feeling sorry for myself because I lost my job on Monday and didn't know what I was going to do; and than I read this and my troubles don't compare whatsoever to what you are dealing with. My heart goes out to you and your loving family. Please do try and fight as hard as you can for as long as you can.
                      AND like Marion said-if you need any help getting some pages done please let us know and we will be willing to help you out as much as we can. Sending prayers to you and your family.

                        Oh Liz, I haven't been on here in awhile but I am in tears. I remember how much we shared in the pregnancy and the bring Emily into the world. As I was reading all the posts from SBM members, I noticed they are written from the original SBM family. We have share so much with each other these past 5 years. Please know that are here for you and your cherished by all of us. I was remembering putting pages together for Emily. I would be honored to help you with some of those pages too. Just remember to keep up the faith, never give up, and please keep us posted.

                          I ditto everything they all said... because I can't think of anything that hasn't already been said. Except to add my love for you along with everyone else's. You and your family remain a cherished part of our own family here. I will send up a bigger heaping of prayers for you on top of those I already do. Love you, Liz Whiz! ♥
