Beautiful. Sums up what Percy did , the man that he was and the impact that he had on everyone affected by cc worldwide perfectly. Thanks for posting this Marion and also to Stella and Barbara for representing everyone at Percy's memorial service. Miss him loads and he will never ever be forgotten. So proud to call him my friend and so wished that I had the chance to meet him and go to that Bears game together.

Hugs,

Gavin

Hi Moontje,

I agree with what Duke says here, please do not panic! Try and stay strong and remember what has got you both through these 7 years. As you both know, yes this is a rollercoaster and you have been through a ton of up's and down's so far. Do not panic and try not to think the worst either as that won't help right now.

I hope that you get some good news from the upcoming scan results and please let us know what they say and also what Tom's medical team recommend. Loads of positive thoughts are coming over the North Sea to you and Tom.

Hugs,

Gavin

Hi Sandy,

Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us all and I am sorry to hear what you and your husband have been going through, he sure has been through a lot this year to say the least. Glad that you've joined in with us though as you are in the best place for support and help and you will get loads of each from everyone here.

Thanks for sharing everything with us. I so hope that your husbands med team can get to grips with everything and especially so with regards to the fainting and BP as from what you say that seems to be causing major issues right now. I hope that you will keep coming back here and please know that we are all here for you. Hoping for better times for you both.

My best to you and your husband,

Gavin

Thanks for that Duke.

My best to you,

Gavin

Thank you Momma!  Next time the station passes over my way I'll wave to you again! smile

Just had to share this pic with you, I love it! A German astronaut was passing above Scotland today from the international space station and took and tweeted this pic of my country. Guess that this is just a normal day for this astronaut waltzing about in space! smile

PS - If he had a good zoom lense he would have seem me waving at you all! I'm on the right hand side near that wee bit that sort of looks like an inverted sideways V shape! smile

Glad to hear that the port went in Vicki and that it wasn't painfull. And yes, that is one thing that you can check off of your list. Please don't worry about rambling, that's what we are all here for so you feel free to ramble away as much as you want to!! Yes a puffy face will be down to the steroids as that can be one of the side effects of steroids. I'm sure that Lainy will comment on that issue!

I so hope that tomorrow is a better day for you and I hope that you feel a bit more energetic and everything. Remember that we are always here for you.

Hugs,

Gavin

Hi Suzanne,

Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us and I am sorry to hear about your husband. But glad that you've joined us all as you are in the right place for support and help and you will get loads of each from everyone here.  I'm real glad that your husband was able to have surgery and glad also that it went so well. Please try not to focus on the negatives or stats and stay positive if you can.

You are so doing the right thing in learning as much as you can about this cancer and as you say, knowledge is power and the better informed you are the better equipped you will both be when it comes to making decisions about everything to do with CC. And if we can help then we will. Please just ask and we will do what we can.

Keep coming back here and know that you are around people who so know what you are going through right now. We are here for you and we care.

My best wishes to you and your husband,

Gavin

Hi Fight CC,

Welcome to the site. And just want to say, love your name and your positive attitude as well! Sorry that you had to find us but glad none the less that you have joined in with us here as you are so in the best place for help and support. I know as well that you'll get loads of each from all of us.

Thanks for letting us know what you have been through, you sure have been through a lot already and I will join in with Lainy in doing her yippee dance!  Great to hear that you were able to have surgery  and that it went well. I wish you luck with putting on some weight and getting rid of the chemo brain as well. We have a great nutrition and chemo board here on the site as well that will be of interest to you.

Moving forward from this point, I love that! I do hope that you will keep coming back here and I look forward to hearing from you more. Please let us know how everything goes and know that we are here for you.

My best to you,

Gavin
