Hi Sherry,

Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us all here but glad that you have joined as you are so in the best place for support and will get loads of that from everyone here. Sorry to hear about your husband but so glad that he was able to have surgery for this as so many people are not able to have that. And real glad to hear that it went well also. I hope that the chemo goes well for him too and please keep us updated on how that goes. You are not alone in this now, we are all here for you as well.

Please keep on going back here as much as you want to as we so care and will do our best to support and help you if we can.

My best wishes to you and your husband,

Good luck with tonight Carol, I am sure that it will go very well indeed!! And 50 ladies there tonight. Yep, I am sure that your dad will be there as well!

Know what you mean about Christmas and yes, the thought of it is worse than the day itself. My dad died 2 weeks before Christmas in 09 and that was a very tough one to say the least.

Looking forward to hearing how tonight goes!

Dear Michelle,

I am so very sorry indeed to hear of the passing of your beloved sister Kim. Please accept my sincere condolences. I so wish that there was something that I could say that would help ease the pain that you feel right now. My thoughts are with you and all of your family right now and please know as well that we are all here for you as well always.



Amen to that Darla.

Hugs to all,
