You asked how you have changed my life ?
I remember that day in detail,I spent ten years asking why ? I look at my wife through different eyes,my son , the second chance he gave me , I see the beauty of man kind which I had not in a long time.I see me in you and beautiful things I have to offer the world.
Not to brag or boast but I am an artist and I have given my vision and faith in man kind .I see me and I like what I see ,the new me in which some-one else made possible by their sacrfice. I see me.

Thank you and there is so much more.

Get well or else the world may be shorted in some profound way you don't even know.

I hope so too, but really don't think so. Nor does the doc I talked to at my employer's insurance, or the Doc and PA at my base. My PA tried not to come out and say it, but all the indicators point to it being malignant. We caught it early, so hopefully it can be dealt with fairly easily. I'm not going to lie, I'm scared right now.

The wind settled down late today, and a chopper picked me up and brought me to Bagram. It wasn't a medevac, but I was the only passenger. I think my PA called in a favor, because it wasn't showing as a scheduled flight. I should have asked her if she was just trying to get rid of me as a patient. Next stop is Dubai, I should get there in a few days.

You mean to say you just started seeing yourself differently since you read about me? Wow, if that's true I don't know what to say. I really didn't do anything, I just post about what's happened to me since getting shot. Good, bad or indifferent, I'm just talking about it and letting you people help me. That's really something that it can help you folks in different ways, too.

I'm working on the get well part, seems I'll have to get over another obstacle now.

You're a good woman, Wolfe, and no matter how this comes out, I'll always be glad you're my friend. You say you're not very spiritual, but I can see it in your actions and the way you treat other people that you are. God bless you.

I glad you got to a base where you can fly out. I'll be thinking about you.

I am in the parking lot at the hospital right now and there's something I forgot to say , I-Pad ,what will they think of next.
Anyhoo , yes . I do see everything differently , deeper more purposeful. You are no doubt someone very very special . Look at all the posts and concern and it has been my humble pleasure
to look deeply into myself .It takes something very profound , so denile free,so honest with myself through all the faults and flaws.
I'm ok and through you I have shucked 40+ years of why did he do that and it cost him dearly , why ? I have lived "Pay it forward" and at times , no favor goes unpunished ,but it's worth every ******** I've come across !
You , yes you have reopened my eyes and how could I possibly thank you ?
Get well for me and all of us , no demons here only love !l

Good luck. We are hpoin' for you.

Enjoy the time out of country if you can.

When this ****storm is all over, you are really due for a streak of good luck. You've used up a lifetime's supply of bad luck.

My girlfriend was diag. with very agressive BC a year ago...also caught early. She went through all the treatment...surgery, chemo, radiation in that order and she is doing great now...back to full steam with renewed vigor, working and going to school. All our prayers are with you Lone Wolf....the world is full of awesome doctors and compassionate people who will see you through! God bless!

I know you're scared Sweetheart, keep this in mind; you are never alone, that tingling you sometimes feel in your hand is us holding it.

Heavenly Father, You are intimately aware of the struggle this soldier is experiencing, the pain and the despair. You know the desire of her heart to be healed of this iujury. I ask now for Your healing touch.

Amen

Yep, I am. Sitting here in Bagram, couldn't sleep. Like that's anything new. But this just adds to the crap in my head. I really don't feel up to talking right now, I'll write more tomorrow. If I can let go of the hands holding mine, that is.....

Ass

I was posting to Lone Wolf about her situation, not to you about yours. That is why I quoted her.

Why don't you start your own thread?

Ass ? I May very well be. I'm taking some weird drugs and don't know nor remember what i'm doing exactly.
You are right though , I'll fade away for a while because this is about Lone Wolf and I am sorry , not myself lately .

Co-worker's wife just went through this and she is fine, now.
Make sure they do a HER2 test. If you are HER2-positive, then Herceptin is given.

They didn't have that test when my Mom had BC, yet she lasted for over 12 years before something else entirely got her. It was not BC coming back.

It sounds like you got this early, and that is great news.

You can't get rid of us that easily.

Of course you can let go of our hands! Miss S_R would pull the roof in on our heads if we tried to keep you from doing so. Take care Sweetheart.

I'll say that I've been trying to do this. I waver between feeling like this is just another obstacle I have to over come, and the occasional "What next? You had your chance in 2008, if you wanted me why didn't you take me then?!?"

Still, I know I've got to fight this, whatever it turns out to be. Otherwise I'll have some pissed off GT'ers at my funeral all with bats at the ready.

Hold on there, gents. Dusty, I'm the one who asked for some prayers for him and updates from him. dango, please don't just disappear and leave us wondering if you're OK. We care about everyone in here.

Googling that info now, thank you my friend. Actually I think it'd be you folks getting rid of me.......

Hi LW,

I am holding your hand across the ocean, the mountains and this vast distance. If you feel scared just sqeeze my hand.
Everything will be OK.

Thanks,

Continuing a chain of hands to reach out in prayer and good thoughts going Lone_Wolfe's way. If you believe in prayer, please pray to give her strength. If prayer is not your thing, send your good thoughts. I just wish we could be there for you LW.
