Happy anniversary, Christine. You have been an inspiration to me during the past six months that I have been going through pure hell. Although not necessarily directed to me, your posts have been some of the most helpful and hopeful. I will keep praying for your continued recovery! wink

Congratulations, Christine, on your anniversary! Your strength, resilience and grace in dealing with this awful disease is inspiring. Your compassion and empathy for others is remarkable especially since you have had to face a third recurrence. Thank you for your heartfelt responses and wise advice. I am really looking forward to meeting you in person at Susan's walk in Andover, NJ. And I wish you many more anniversaries!

Christine, I don't know how I overlooked you 1 yr anniversary, but you know I want you to always have the best and keep up the goodwork. I remember the bootcamp days 2 or 3 yrs ago.LOL I really enjoyed them because I believe always make the best of whatever you face. You have a tough son there as you found out when you needed him. Good job of raising a fine young man and him for taking such great care of you.


Since posting this. UPMC, Pittsburgh, Oct 2011 until Jan. I averaged about 2 to 3 surgeries a week there. w Can't have jaw made as bone is deteroriating steaily that is left in jaw. Mersa is to blame. Feeding tube . Had trach for 4mos. Got it out April.

Congratulations, Christine, on your one-year anniversary. Believe me, there's no way you could be considered even slightly disfigured because you are such a beautiful, caring, and giving person. Everyone on this forum loves and admires you; I know I do, so don't ever think of yourself as disfigured. That's just a mirror image - not OUR CHRISTINE.
