Kim you have had a few cancer scares in your family lately. I really hope that this is just a scare, and not the real thing. BOO ... you can now go somewhere and hide, somewhere that everything is all OK. You just have to figure out where that is. I know with Terri it is a good thick book, others it is a funny movie, with me it is telling the kids a teacher joke, and perhaps some others may be able to give you some ideas of how you can hide from this scary ghost that constantly says BOO ... to you when you least expect it.
I hope this next week is better for all of you Kim!

Kim, I hope today was a little better and that you were able to get some rest. You must feel like your life is totally out of control. None of us have the magic words that will make things better, but hopefully the doctors will soon. Hugs!

Hugs to you Kim
Like Linda you are a fighter
What do y'all got in the water down there - you need to bottle it and sell it here in the States.
Hugs and Good Thoughts headed your way

That is because we are both Aussie Battlers
The term Aussie Battler is an Australian colloquialism referring to "ordinary" or working class individuals who persevere through their commitments despite adversity. The battler refuses to admit defeat in the face of great difficulties.

Thanks for getting back to we all and updating we. It's such a shame how the symptoms of cancer have showed ok in one area then moved to another which sounds abit more complicated..i totally hate that disease and i am really sorry for you daughter also.
Kim you've got so much worry on your head no wonder your fatigued mate and having a game to sleep, i think we'd all be in the same boat but in the same situation.
Oh do takecare mate and my thoughts are deeply with you kim xoxoxoxox
