Hi Carrie,

If your gut is telling you this is the right treatment then it is.  I always follow my gut.  I know you are smart enough to know that.

I send you lots of hugs, prayers and love.  Hang in there.  You are a true warrior!

Love,  Liz

Good morning everyone,
I think the steroids have ramp down in my system geesh talk about trembling head to toe. I am still kinda shaking not as bad as yesterday.
I have a new rule I am not answering the house phone anymore. DH is screening all calls for me. I spoke to a cousin that was asking about how the day went with the test and hope they  didn't find more and started comparing me to her recently deceased husband,  OMG I had a melt down again.

Deese is coming over this evening I am so happy for the distraction. DH is going to call the  Rad Onc see if there is any news there?

The thing I am finding about this carp is that surgery is the key treatment and rads and chemo second to that at least that is my understanding so far.
I have read at ACS a little I can't really finds a good support board like this one for answers and questions so I really don't want to hunt one and find a bad one full of just woe and no concrete evidence based and experience answers like here. I will try and ask more questions from the medical personal around me as I go along.

Seychelles it is ironic you used that song for me as I made a slide to that song for all of you. Thank you.

Yep Carrie ... surgery and rads did the trick for my friend. They won't do chemo unless it becomes necessary. For now he is NED and doing really well. The key is a good surgeon and then the rads. He and I have been trying to find support sites for you but there's not much out there.
Hugs and prayers
Cheryl

Hi Carrie,

So sorry that I have not posted more this week. I have thought of you and the week is just gone. Sorry about the cousin as no one needs more anxiety is my opinion. I do not know why people do things like that and phone screening is good...speaking for myself here,as I do that for me and my parents,at times.

Just wanted to say hi and I have you a small pkg that I will go to PO tomorr. It is just to let you know how much you are thought of and cared about.

Loved the song with Carole King and friends. She/song were popular when I was in my 20s and her "Tapestry"album awesome! One of those that we love forever songs. I would sing parts of it to the kids at schl and they would supply the words that rhymed...good memory there. Neat song that expresses how much you are thought of and Seychelles and you,both, selected a great one! Neat that happened...

Rattling...just wanted to say hi!!!

Iris

Hi Carrie.....

Don't you just want to slap people like your cousin?  They have no pickin clue what talking about things like that do to those who are going through this. 

I continue to send you lots of love and prayers.  Hang tight sweetie. 

Love, Liz

Take away your cousin's phone privileges!  Geeesh!!!  We all know people who engage their mouths before putting their brain in gear but that is just plain awful.

Sending lots of prayers and hugs---where is that comfy couch?

Carrie-
I'm still thinking about that cousin.  Can I make a suggestion?  The next time somebody starts that kind of conversation with you, look them straight in the eye and say, "you're not helping".  Stops them dead in their tracks---so what if it embarrasses them---they're hurting YOU!  I only had to use it 2 or 3 times but it sure made ME feel a lot better!

Jeannie is right ... if you tell people they are not helping they will think more about what they say.
How are you doing today?
Hugs and prayers
Cheryl

PS ... I ordered a bunch of different prayer cards and should be getting them soon. Will get them out to you as soon as I get them

Carrie - you're in my thoughts and prayers ...  hoping the anxiety over the test results ends today and that the liposarcoma is found to be isolated to your leg ... praying for good results from the scans ... 

Love you,
Doreen

 I just got news about mri and ct scans show Cancer is contained to my leg
CT of chest shows non specific nodule that she said half of the residents of the Miami valley have due to allergies. I asked could they also be caused by asthma or pneumona and she absolutly but they will be checking them again in about 3 months to be sure. they said contained has not spread further than my leg but it is a very large mass. Thank you God! She said they will be calling me in afew days for my game plan of rads.

Love,
Carrie
