Please pray for my wife! She was just diagnosed with cancer.
« on: December 15, 2011, 11:55:01 pm »
I thought about where to post this, but seems most of my friends are all in the D2 forum. So I wanted to say it here.

Last week my wife and I found out she has a T3 N2 M? breast cancer that is her2 negative grade 3. Its a stage IIIc cancer that today showed a blip on the pet/ct scan. We are hoping the MRI tomorrow will show that it is not metastatic cancer that has spread to her liver which is almost always fatal in the short term.

My wife remembers my late nights playing with you guys and all the time we spent designing servers for us all to mess around on. Ahhh the good ole days. I wish I could back up the clock and relive some of it. I miss you guys.

Special thanks to Stephen Smith who has been a life long buddy that has always been there for me to talk to about anything. God Bless you bro.

Have a merry Xmas or happy holiday peeps. Life is what you make of the time you are given.

Dizzy, I am so sorry to hear about your wife. My wife had cancer a few  years ago and we managed to beat it. She's been cancer free for three years now. I hope you and your wife can do the same!

Good luck my friend!

Best of luck.

Dizzy my friend,

As you may remember I had Stage III colon cancer in 2003. I'm still standing.  My life changed. I have battle scars, but I have endured.  I am still working, I am still husband to my wife of 31 years, I'm coaching a chess team that is an absolute juggernaut this year, and I've been Teacher of the Year at my school  in 2005 and this year. 

There have been setbacks, annoyances, and frustrations.  But in 2003 my wife put two notes on the bathroom mirror.  The first said, "Mission Statement:  Don't Die."  The second one said "...anything else we can work out."  And that's how it's been. 

Your journey will be tough.  You must prepare for war, and to be the cheerleader and strength for your wife.

I'd be happy to share my thoughts and experiences  either here or by PM. 

God Bless

Mazeppa hit the nail on the head when he said Your journey will be tough.  You must prepare for war, and to be the cheerleader and strength for your wife. 

Your going to find inner strengths you never knew you had brother.

Thanks for the responses, guys, and for the PM's which have been helpful. We think she now has Stage IV. There was a small blip near her liver on the Pet/CT scan, and so they did an MRI of the Liver and it showed a 1.2cm mass. The Biopsy and Port is sqedueled for Fri. She is pretty saddened by it.

Stand strong for her man, And remember to lean on us if you need to.

Remember, Stage IV means it may have only spread to one other organ, and can still be treated successfully.  We will be keeping the prayers going for ya.

Berte's singing TOS Closing


She hates me now for making her do that... But once I heard her singing in the next room to my trek music as I was blasting an opponent away with phasers, I vowed to record her singing this, hehe. After all these years finally got it!

And thanks for the prayers.
