Look At These

http://www.lungcanceralliance.org/facing/facesoflungcancer/

One of the many things that amazes me and freaks me out is the fact that I have already outlived (from time of diagnosis) many of the people who had stage IV adenocarcinoma (which is what I have, in case you needed reminding). I just want my baby to remember me. I want to live long enough for him to remember me.

I have thought of you all day today. I wish I could make it all go away. It's not fair. No one should have to go through this pain, especially a mama.

You are loved, Rosebud. I look forward to seeing you soon.

But he will remember, no matter what. Memory can be sharp images whose edges get fuzzier over time or the warm embrace of care and love given generously that your child feels forever. Either way, you are remembered.

I just want to offer you and your family hope. My MIL was diagnosed with lung cancer (stage IV adenocarcinoma) ten years ago, and she is still here with us, fighting the fight. We never thought it would be possible that we would keep her this long (since I believe the initial diagnoses was a life expectancy of six months to a year). Limits are made to be broken. You are often in my thoughts. Take care of yourself.
