Worse blog page 2

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

Happy 4th of July. I want to continue some of this part of my journey. I want to thank each of you for your beautiful comments to my blog. it certainly brought a lot of emotion and the awesome feeling of who we are here on SparkPeople. Thank you.
I also learned more about my 2 sons, after they received the news. My youngest son flew in
N the next day and sort of took over, He already has pages of notes, has met with all the doctors that are part of the team. My oldest son flew in Monday and the young one flew home,
I really thought it would be easier without them here, but I am so glad they didn't Listen to me.
My neighbors have been here everyday and helping me from their units in running the building..All things coming together in balance certainly helps in a healing process.
Why I had waited to respond , we were waiting for biopsies to determi the correct approach in approaching the cancer. I don't think I mentioned a couple of signs that this cancer created,
I can not talk, very quiet, so talking on the phone is out, I do text occasionally, also , I can not walk without support, both with a walker and a person. The doctors feel the tumors are pressing on nerves. SO as part of treatment, I start chemotherapy in 10 minutes. It will appear to look no different to any one seeing it happen. The first treatments last 3 days ( sessions) and then nothing for couple weeks ,I may. Or may not feel any differences right away.
They want me to lay down so I can get the other bags attached. So till later I llove each of nofbyou very much. Monty.

    Hi Monty, I never saw this Blog. I never realized that you had written a last blog.

    back when you were not feeling well, you told me you were going in the Hospital in a Personal Letter. I had no idea at the time how serious it was. You made light of it to me. You said, "I will write to you when I get home." This happened to be the week we went on Vacation. Little did I know what was happening. Then I got the Letter about your passing. I just cried and cried. I never saw these blogs at the time. Today, I was thinking about you and was reading alll the comments from others and someone mentioned these blogs. I wish that I had seen this blog back in 2012, I wish that I could have responded to this blog while you were still with us. I often think of you. You were so wonderful with me while my husband was sick. You never let on to me that you also had Cancer. My husband is gone now too. I feel like the two of you are Friends in Heaven. I miss you very much. I miss my husband very much. I know that the two of you are watching over me.

    Oh, Monty, my heart is breaking. When I hadn't seen comments from you in a while, I was worried that there might be something very wrong, and now I see there is.

    I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I will be thinking about you with loving thoughts and sending wishes your way for strength and hope. I am so glad your sons are with you. Take good care.

    Yours sincerely,

    Monty, I am so well pleased to know you have so many loving and caring friends and family to lend their love to you because this helps so very much.

    I am still believing for Jesus healing you to manifest making you whole, and complete just like you never had anything invading your body. You should rest, relax and just float along with all the love that is coming your way and I am declaring all of this in the name of Jesus and I frimly believe in the manifested glory of His healing power descending upon you as a dove.

    I am very glad your sons came and that you have so much support near by. You continue to be in my prayers Monty! I thank you for keeping us posted. I hope that you have given someone your account information so in case you are not able to log in and give us an update at some point, that another person is there to do that. So many people here on spark care about you and you have made such a difference in so many peoples' lives.

    I am glad that your sons were there for you. It is so comforting to have your family with you during this time. Your neighbors are awesome to be there for you. God certainly has put the right people in your path to help you along with your healing. I know I speak for all your Spark friends. If we could all be there praying for you and helping you right by your side, it would be just what we all would like. However prayers from Oshawa, Ontario, are with you and God has you in his healing arms surrounding you at this time.
    Hang in there Monty, God is still in the miracle business.
    Love and hugs,

    Monty, I had spark mailed you before I saw this blog. I had company and wasn't on much.
    Thank you for letting us know.
    We care for you as you care for us. You are such an inspiration to so many people, including myself.
    I am praying for you and still believe God works miracles. I know it is difficult for you as you have been so active.
    Hope the chemo will be easy and you won't feel any ill effects.

    Monty, it is very nice that your sons are there for you and that you also get support from your neighbors. You really shouldn't focus on anything else than your own health.
    It is very hard to read that these tumors are causing these negative things, but hang in there. God will give the doctors the wisdom they need to treat you, and he will give you strength and peace of mind they you need right now.
    Monty I'm with you in spirit and my prayers continue! emoticon emoticon
    3067 days ago
    Monty, my prayers are also with you, hoping the chemo does the job that it is supposed to do, and does not make you too sick, but knowing that it is a miserable thing and has to kill the cancer cells, so take care my friend, and I expect any day that you will be passing my again, on our walk across America.

    Monty, I've been doing a lot of praying since your first blog and will keep it up. It's great that your sons ignored you. Hang tough.

    3067 days ago
    God be with you Monty. I too am glad your sons came! When you are on this kind of a journey; you need someone there to be your advocate! To do just the things it sounds like your sons have been doing. Have a hunch they are a lot like their Dad; be proud of them! I hope all goes well with the chemo and that it brings you relief and healing. Bless you and yours. Hugs.

    I am praying the chemo helps stop the pressing against the nerves Monty, so you'll do better and feel better.
    And I'm really happy that your sons didn't listen to you this time and came there to be with you. We need our loved ones by our side when health issues crop up.
    I imagine you've helped your neighbours like you always help us here on Sparks so it is wonderful for them to now help you.
    Get some rest Monty . . . see you when you get back on computer!
    Love and hugs, Gloria

    It was with dread that I saw your second blog, and I was afraid to open it and read it. I want to remember by busy, active, encouraging emoticon and you shared from your heart what has already happened and I feel so bad. So glad both your sons came and you realized that they are important and you are important to them. I know we've talked about our kids before and they lead such different lifestyles that we do, but they did take the time and I know that was their way of showing you they do love you. We all do, you have made so many friends and helped so many people in just the 2 years I have known. you.

    I pray the chemo is productive and does not make you feel to miserable....God is watching over you and he will not give you more than you can bear.
    Blessings on you!

    Praying for you to have relief of the pressing on the nerves from your chemo treatments Monty. I'm so glad your sons & neighbors are helping you. God bless you each.

    Monty, we will be thinking of you daily and prayers sent for Healing. I know it means a lot to be in touch with Sparkfriends. If your comfortable with taking notes maybe a friend or son could Post your comments as you recover? Some asked what hospital your in? And Room number?
    if you don't want that info out there that is fine. Just thought I would ask :)
    Get rest if you can, its hard with a busy hospital.
    Thank you for the update.
