Into the Depths: MEMOS

Tuesday, June 27, 2006


To Whom It May Concern: If you are puking you will be taken back more quickly than others in the E.R.

For Your Information: A 'Hall' bed in a large hospital emergency room is neither private nor spacious.

In Case You Were Interested: If the doctor wants you to do the opposite end of puking, you will get that private room.

Don't Forget: Other than the fact that it might save your life, chemotherapy sucks.

Note To Self: Physically exhausted = Ridiculously emotional

I have read alittle further back in your posts today.
I read about your mother's cancer and I am so sorry. You have alot on your plate Stepahnie and I know you must feel alone in it.
I can relate to this one though. Cancer is a tough journey.
My closest friend my whole life lost her battle with cancer 3 months ago. We were very close and it was devastaing. I just got to the point where I told God I could not stand for her to suffer anymore.
We so wanted healing for her and ultimately she was healed, just not the way we wanted. I was selfish and wanted to keep her but that really isnt what she wanted.
I know the stress you must be under and I committ to praying for you and your mother as well.
I am glad I went back and read so I know how to pray.
God Bless you Stephanie

Hey Paulette,
Thank you for all your input and thank you for your prayers. My mother is ok, it was chemo side effects that sent her to the hospital and they just do what they can to control them and make her a little more comfortable. It will be a long round, but hopefully it will accomplish it's purpose. I am very sorry about your friend. I read your post about her and it broke my heart for you.

You poor thing, how awful. I bet all of you are worn out! Please let us know how she is doing. Were they able to get her to stop vomiting? Can she keep meds down now?

Hey Stephanie,
Just checking in today to let you know you are in my prayers, as well as your mother.
I hope the Lord gives you a peace today and you can get some rest later.
Have a great day.
