    My wife has recently been diagnosed with something called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)... it's a cancer of the b-cells in the blood.  The disease is incurable.  It's a very slow growing cancer, so she can live for years before she starts getting the severe effects of the disease.  Right now, she's in the watch-and-wait mode.  Since the disease in incurable, there's nothing to do until the more severe symptoms begin to show.  She's feeling extreme fatigue right now, which is her main complaint. 

    I really don't like to use LP as a forum for this kind of thing, but if you can please say a prayer for her, I would really appreciate it!!  We are going through a lot right now, just learning to accept this.  I will be visiting LP when I can, but will not be posting as frequenty for a while....  Thank you so much in advance!

    Calabs,

    My heart is beside you.  I promise to pray diligently for your wife, and you

    Now I must tell you that the LP is exactly the place for this kind of thing and I will tell you why.  A while back during my many challenges of my son going to war, illness and other issues, I sent Todd a PM and told him that I wasn't goning to be here for a while because my heart was just to heavy.  I was loosing my intrest in the numbers.  What he said to me was this, "Don't stop coming, you don't have to talk about the numbers, talk about how you feel."  and that is exactly what I did.  I began to get many PM's of encouragement and I felt so much love from my family at the LP.  It was one of the most overwhelming experiences I've ever had to log on one day and see the many prayers and well wishes.  I was simply moved to tears.  I guess what I am saying in short, "IT SAVED ME"  my soul found so much love and comfort that at this moment, my heart rushes to tears. 

    Never once did the thought even occur to me that being in cyber space would craddle my heart.  I would like to encourage you as Todd did me, by telling you to come as much as you can and blog if you need to or enter into the discussion area.  Even during a rough time for me I was able to connect to people that I had yet to know.  We have all heard that you don't know people in cyber space, but I guess I have to differ with that, for me, this is my family.  Going through that process taught me that even though we all share a common thread of love for the numbers, we also share love for one another. 

    Now I want to share one more thing with you, I am suppose to log on every other day, I was here yesterday and I just felt compelled to log on today, and when I saw your name highlighted I clicked the link.  When I was in the hospital, the doctors said they don't know how I was even still alive, while I was in intensive care, EVERYONE on the ward died, EXCEPT ME!!  They said there was no cure for diabetes also, I started off on insulin, then graduated to the pills, now I am no longer taking either.  Now to me, God's hand has comforted me with miracles more than once.  I believe in miracles, they still happen!  I'm a miracle!  Finally I gotta say this, for me, being able to log on here today and see your name shinning brightly was a miracle. 

    my heart is beside you, and I pray that you know, you are not alone,

    PaTrice

      PaTrice,

      That was one of the most inspiring messages I've ever read.  I hope everyone gets a chance to read it and absorb it.  I'm going to tag it as one of my Favorites.  Thank you so much.

        Now Todd,

         

        Why'd you have to go and do that?  My Heart Is Already FULL!  I meant every word of it and I really hope everyone knows that it is so much more than numbers here.  I think more people actually feel this way and may not express it. Thank you Todd!

         


        Now you see that calabs?? This is one of the very things that I am telling you about.  Right when you think, ......I just can't fall in love anyMore....someone comes along, just like Todd just did and overwhelms me all over again, and my wish for you is to feel the way Todd just made me feel.  I hope that you, calabs, would feel an expression of love through an emotional overwhelming experience because I believe that this emotion is one of God's little gifts in the form of a miracle.  Now, I gotta say, if you feel it, then you have just personally tasted some of God's miracle.

          PaTrice -I must agree with Todd.... Your note was so moving, it brought a tear to my eye... thank you so very much for sharing that with me and ALL of LP... it is a truly inspiring story!!!  I didn't want to post this thread at first, but I reallized, as you and many other have, that the folks here on LP have really become an "extension" of my family... we come here to share and discuss numbers, but how can you not become attached to all the wonderful, kind, and compassionate people here!?!? 

          Thank you PaTrice...thank you ALL, for giving me strength and courage!!!  I will never forget what you've done!   Blowing Nose

            calabs,

            You are exactly right, you can't become anything but attached!  And doesn't God's miracale feel good?!  Now I gotta say what is in my heart, placed there by our Honorable Soldiers and it's simply what families do.
