Unhappy

I was just notified that my dear Uncle Phil has Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia. My aunt sounded a bit scared in her e-mail but filled us with hope that he may still have many years left in him. He's well into his 70's right now. Your special prayers would be appreciated at this time. It's times like this I wish I lived closer.

Oh, Magz, how terrible! But indeed, you're aunt's right - there's hope! I have a friend who came down acute leukemia, wasn't even expected to live out the week and they actually managed to save him! He's not youngster either. It's been several years now and he's doing fine. In fact, I met him just a few weeks ago and can testify to it myself. So here's hoping you're uncle will weather this!

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement, hib. If it wasn't for the fact that less than 3 years ago, he battled prostate cancer and skin cancer and beat it, makes me worry, oh God is this the one that's gonna get him? He just can't seem to shake cancer and that's what worries me.

Your uncle is in my thoughts and prayers, Magill. I wish there was something else I could do for you.

Well, Mags, I can't blame you for being anxious. He must be a pretty tough fella to have beaten the other two. (My friend Judy's son-in-law died from skin cancer and he was only in his thirties.) Hopefully his treatment will go well and your uncle will have many more years to enjoy. (((hugs)))

Thanks, everyone. I can't to leave work so I can make a few phone calls to family. One to my Aunt and Uncle, first and foremost. These people are special to me because they always treated us girls (me and my sisters) like their own. They always wanted daughters and we were kind of their surrogate ones. Having 7 boys just isn't the same, I guess.
So, when I lose him, I'll feel like I'll be losing another Dad. *sigh* It'll be a sad day when that comes, indeed.

Just spoke with my Aunt and everyone, including the doctors, is optimistic that he'll make it through this fine. So, I'm going to try to stop worrying. But, please keep him in your prayers as all of us here are, too. Thanks to you all. You guys are the best support system EVER!

Glad to hear everyone is optimistic.

I think Beatlelinks is a great support system too. There are times when I feel blah or blue and I know I can come here and find someone who can relate or at least offer a kind word.
