I am very, very sorry to hear about the devistating news from Mimi. My sister had cancer ten years ago, but amazingly, she got over it and it hasn't came back since, which was truely a miracle. I'll be sure to keep her husband, her, and her family in my prayers. May God be with you always and especially during this extremely difficult time.

Mimi,
I will be praying for a complete healing for your husband, whether it is through treatment or a miracle. Nothing is to big for God! Hang in there!

Mimi and her sweet husband saw the surgeon today. This is her update:
1-he cannot have the surgery until he has healed from the emergency hernia surgery.
2-the doctors did something to give him some relief from some symptoms, he has to have that changed, hopefully, relief will be immediate
3-there will be a surgery and I believe in good surgeons who know what they are doing and that next summer Mimi & Jerry will be planning their Provence trip!
Marianna, she spoke of how much you boosted her spirits
She has been one of my longest online friends, I appreciate every day, how special she is ~

Stay in there Mimi,

My daughter had a lumpectomy a year ago last August, went through both radiation and chemo for several months. This year she ran for County Supervisor and lost by 240 votes out of 24,000 to a two term incumbant. Right now she is on a bicycle and barge trip in the Netherlands.

Positive energy is important. I know it's hard, but stay in there. Prayers are with you.

cigale- as you are in Boston, you are with the best care you can get. I met my ex because his father was being treated at Brigham and Women's (and was cured) and I know quite a few other success stories. And no failures. You are in the right place and I just wish I were still there so I could bring by some food for you and yours to eat. That is what I do when people are sick.

Thanks for posting that information here, Scarlett. As for me boosting her spirits, I think it was the other way around! We had a few good laughs during our conversation. She's a dear person. All the best to both of them!

Mimi,

I got through colon cancer surgery in 2001. I told the doctor that he could operate on me on May 10 only if he promised I could be in St. Remy by June 25. He did, I was.

Your husband is in my prayers.

I had a very nice visit with Jerry and Mimi in February and was planning to put a card in the mail to them today. Since Jerry doesn't really "do internet" or Fodor's, I have decided to print this thread and mail to them. I will plan on printing it tonight so if anyone else would like to respond before then.

Hoping your rough time is a bump and then on to a long and easier path.
