    You know maybe the greater plan in losing that "big shot job" was to push you into treatment so you would have the strength to weather these storms. My best to you my friend. I will keep you in my thoughts.

    I was reminded of the story of Job.
    Maybe you should take some free time to read it, or read it again.

    God's hand is not cut short in this. He knows your every heart's ache. Don't fear, but continue to remind yourself that God walks with you through this. He will never leave you or forsake you.

    I'll be praying for you.

    My heart broke when I read this. Of course your AN family is here for you and I know your faith is there for you IRL but this just sucks to go through. You do know it is OK to allow yourself a little private time to break down, wail, gnash teeth and simply vent this seething mess of emotions you probably have churning around. We will listen and understand and still love you Marla. I do so wish I could do something meaningful IRL for you. However I can send you a cyber hug or ten. {{HUG}}

    Viva, I am so sorry to read everything you posted. Pancreatic cancer is so sudden and no one should have to go through this terrible disease. I've only read a bit of what you have posted over the last few months that I have been on the website but I always read what I see with your name attached. Please accept my positive thoughts for your husband and for you. I wish I could help you IRL.

    I don't know you, but my heart goes out to you. You are clearly a very strong person, and I am sorry you are going through so much. As they say, when it rains it usually pours... Best of luck navigating these hard times. It was brave of you to be so open about it here and to share these experiences with us.

    Hugs and prayers to you and your family. Too bad I can't reach through the computer and give you a huge hug.
