Well that sucks! Yet through it all you are keeping your sense of humor and your selflessness at the forefront.

No one that has to battle this crap is ever considered a wimp. Remember that! The worst thing most of us deal with on a daily basis is a hang nail - and even then there are those that just can't possibly get to work with one!

I hope MH has some IRL support. Cyber support is great, but you both need those people that you can hug in person.

Prayers continue for both of you. Stay positive as much as you can! You have a whole world of peeps rooting for you!

Love isn't what you say, it's what you do.

Sending you and MH huge hugs and love.

Bald? Like me? So, you got a nice smooth head, smooth body, smoothy smoothy! Make the best of it.

I'm pretty fond of fuzzy hats of all persuasions with the possible exception of wooly. But I love cotton knit or crochet, and fuzzy fleece. I have a couple bucket hats I can live in 24/7, so comfy.

If you decide you want a wig to help you when the mirror is annoying, PM me and I can offer some tips. The good ones aren't cheap but they can help if you need the boost.

AK47 this shit, sending you much healing mojo!

FBW then 46, XWHNPDPAFTG the destroyer of my entire life. D-Day 1 '99, D-Day 2,3,4,5,6... '09-'11, D '15. I fell apart. I put myself back together. Forgiveness isn't required. I'm happy and healthy now, and MY new life is good.

Sending more Aussie mojo across to the miles to both of you

I am fully expecting you to AK47 this shit because when you do, I'm going to do my very best to attend a g2g at your place. I'll start saving now.

Dear DS - I don't check in too often, so this is a response to something from earlier. GROANS ARE GOOD! They are a gift from God/Life/our bodies to help us relieve pain. They loosen our muscles and deepen our breathing. The same applies to crying, for similar reasons.

So letting yourself groan/cry is USING YOUR POWER TO HELP YOURSELF HEAL. It is not being a wimp, but being a strong, wise person deciding to do what will benefit you.

On the other side, I second what tushnurse said about the possibility of temporary depression. When the body undergoes a trauma, which is how it sees an operation or an invasive treatment, it wants us to curl up in a safe place and recover, and it may use depression to force us to slow down and do that. In any case, it is a bodily reaction that will eventually taper off (it may take some months), not a change in who you are.

Sending love and encouragement to you and MH. I hope you BOTH (that means you, MH) keep in touch with what you need and seek the support that will help you.

Him, fBH (sisoon)

Sending love and healing thoughts across the miles. I agree with Plainsong's post. Excessive pain isn't good, but some pain let's us know we are alive and our bodies react accordingly. I hope yours goes to a more tolerable level -- or, even better, just goes!

Whenever I think of you, I envision a crowd of people (50,000+!) standing with you as you have treatments or tests, then 50,000+ pairs of arms lifting you to the light and all those thoughts and hearts with you both. You are a special couple to so many!

Finding what life could have been....... Why didn't I see it?

Haven't been around much but just wanted to send some love and good vibes. Been thinking about you lately.

But that's just a lot of water

And there's no use in backtracking

Hey DS, sending you and MH love and strength again toward soldiering through all this. It's a marathon for sure. You both are tough, though; cancer is up against formidable opponents. This too shall pass.
