    Hi Friends

    Any stage 1 and 2's might want to run away right now……this is a bitch and the beast from hell has got a hold of me now and is not letting me go.

    Hi Friends

    Any stage 1 and 2's might want to run away right now……this is a bitch and the beast from hell has got a hold of me now and is not letting me go.

    I'm checking in . I called Hospice last week, my sister came down, it will be 2 wks ago come this Sunday. Had more surgery to  my left arm, yep it was full of melanoma, had more brain mets, had WBR (3) stopped that after 3 times, burning pain on fire all through the night. CT Scans showing lower lunbar spine is full of melanoma, it spreads out like a horese tail and sends shooting pain down my leg, one tumor is on a eye nerve, I am now completely blind in my right eye  and 'em wearing an eye batch to stopped the double vision so I can see, I can't walk., I'm in a wheel chair &  walker, cant bath myself, blah, blah, blah…this is it. Today is my granddaughter 9th b-day so I wanted to live long enough to be here for that.  Hospice dropped the ball today w/pain meds and are getting their asses jammed….give me drugs NOW. I've asked my sister to posted when I'm your Warrior Angel. Ipi and others are a waste of time for me now cuz the beast is everywhere.

     

    So I'm saying goodbye to all now, you have been more loving and a soruce of stregth for me more than you will ever know. For those of you who can…FIGHT ON & NEVER GIVE UP….I LOVE YOU…SEE YOU ON THE FLIP SIDE. LOVE, SHARON IN RENO, STAGE IV…..going down kicking and screaming with love and lots of DRUGS.

      Sharon,

      You have had such an impact on so many people during your own personal battle against this *&$%#$%* disease.  Your compassion and sense of humor have been a real source of comfort.  

      I'm so glad you were able to celebrate your granddaughter's birthday and leave her with some very special memories.

      I pray that your transition will be comfortable and pain free.  You deserve nothing less.

      Please know that you will not be forgotten by your family here.

      My very best to you.  I know you'll be the brightest star in the sky!

      May God bless you and keep you safe.  I have always enjoyed your input here, it was like you were always there willing and able to answer questions.

      I am at a loss for words…somehow words don't cut it.  Melanoma sucks I think maybe even more so than any other disease in my opinion.

      Be at peace.

You are and will always be a pillar of this community and we will miss you dearly. I hope to see you on the other side.

      I will run to you

      Your eye is on the sparrow
      And Your hand, it comforts me
      From the ends of the Earth to the depth of my heart
      Let Your mercy and strength be seen

      You call me to Your purpose
      As angels understand
      For Your glory, may You draw all men
      As Your love and grace demand

      And I will run to You
      To Your words of truth
      Not by might, not by power
      But by the spirit of God
      Yes I will run the race
      'Till I see Your face
      Oh let me live in the glory of Your grace

      I I am stage one and though it saddens me greatly, I would never run away.

      My very best to you and your family during this difficult time. Thank you for allowing your sister to post, and happy birthday to your granddaughter. Glad you made it! I knew you would though as I do not think I have ever seen anyone with as much fire and spunk on this board as you!

      Much love,gratitude and respect to you personally as well. Many, many thanks to you for everything you have done to help others on this board while going through your own personal hell yourself. What you have done here speaks volumes as to your character. It was an honor to read many of your posts. They were humorous, yet sincere and determined.

      Sweet dreams to you now. May you finally take joy in knowing you will be free of the beast soon.

      See you on the flip side one day-I'll look you up!

      Hello Sharon….

      I don't come to the board very often anymore…so glad i peeked in tonight.  I am so sorry to hear you are in pain.  I am a firm believer in being able to call the shots on how/what we want for the end of our lives.  NONE of us get out of this alive….we are all here on Temporary Work Visas.  Coming into this world is a beautiful thing…Going out should be also.   I wish you peace…I thank you for all the time you took to help and encourage so many on this board, giving freely of yourself.  

      So many times over the past 3 years, our MPIP friends have passed…some never to be heard from again…and it always made me so sad, that I never got the chance to wish them Godspeed.  

       

      May the road rise to meet you.

      May the wind be always at your back.

      May the sun shine warm upon your face, 

      the rain fall soft upon your fields, and 

      until we meet again, 

      May God hold you in the palm of HIS hand. 

       

      Peace be with you my friend, Godspeed….

      I can't even beging to tell you how I'm feeling right now after reading your post.  What a courageous,warrior you have been.  I pray you will find peace and painfree days throughout the rest of this dark road we are all on.  You have the right to be MAD, HURT,BITTER, SAD and whatever other feelings you are having, just remember though if you know the Lord Jesus as your personal savior it will be a win-win situation.  A miracle could still happen but if it doesn't you will spend eternity in a place where you will NEVER again feel pain or sadness and the word MELANOMA does not exist.  It is truely hard to write this with the tears flowing down my face.  I don't know what it feels like to be in your position as I am the wife of stage IV.  Thank you for all the encouraging post, updates etc… you have been an inspiration to all.

      My Dear Sharon, Your bravery is astounding and your continued regard for all of your friends by posting such a heartfelt post is incredibile and speaks of your character.  I have always thought I would get to meet you and had a connection to you as my husband worked in Reno and I was there so often.

      I am so pleased you have the services of Hospice and I know you will enbrace the care and love they offer. Take every bit of help you can. I have a feeling we will hear more from you, but if we don't , please know how much you were loved and respected…Take care Joan

      May you have peace, be comfortable, and be assured of love from family and the Lord.

      Dear Sharon,

      I send peace, love and light your way. This "newbie" was quite shaken to read your post as it is the first call to hospice I have experienced. Know that I care and need to hear everything you have to say.

      It is sometimes hard to think of something to say to someone in your position…

      So I can't help but see my husband's face as I am talking with you. Know that I feel there is a great presense in this discussion room, all these people care about you and know you are fighting the great fight. My hope is that this presense will look over us all with great passion from the other side.

      As I look into my husband's eyes, I see the love you, Sharon have for family and friends and know that your time on this earth is blessed beyond tomorrows.

      The kiss, telling a person how much we love them…  Touching, holding hands…  It's physical, and my husband feels it as your family must feel it, and yours can not be replaced just as his can not.

      Do not be afraid, that is my last wish for you.

      Soul to soul we find one another, we love and laugh together, we ache together, and we have to let each other go.

      You will be in my thoughts.

You have been such a source of strength for so many of us, offering help and advice when you yourself were slipping into the twilight with this wicked disease. And even now, you're showing us all how to bow out gracefully, and live the last days with poise and dignity. You truly are remarkable! Of course, I will still hope and pray for some miracle. Although we have never met, I nonetheless hold you close in my heart and consider you a dear cyber friend. I wish you peace and comfort in your final days. Damn! This is so hard!!!

      Oh Sharon.  I am so devestated by this news.  The last thing in the world I want is for you to suffer.  We all know we suffer tremendously, by choice, in our valiant attempts to fight off this bastard.  And often the downside is worth it for the potential payoff.  But in melanoma there is such a piss poor risk / benefit ratio.  I have been so blessed to have gotten so much bonus time so far.  I've responded miraculously to treatments.  But I know I'm the exception, and I also know when my time comes there won't be anything that makes a difference.  I hope that you can stay comfortable.  A few drugs never hurt anyone, lol.  Well anyone who wasn't already a stage 4 cancer patient!

      You've been a wonderful source of inspiration for me.  A terrific cheerleader and friend who could truly identify with my struggles.  I will miss you when you're gone.  Remember – the moment you die and go to heaven, you've beaten melanoma's sh**y a** because he's not allowed in.  So you win.  And you take him down with you.

      I love you Sharon and I will be praying for peace and comfort for you and your family.  I will always be sorry we never got to meet in person!

      I'm so very sad right now yet so in awe with you at the same time.  I hope by the time you read this, you will have relief from the pain on your granddaughter's birthday.  Thank you for all of your helpful posts. Sending you love.

      Dear Sharon,

      Yours is a heart-breaking, but honest message. I'll be praying very hard that the rest of the journey is as easy as possible for you because you deserve that. You've fought so hard for yourself, and your words have given so much encouragement to others including myself. Your spirit will live on in all of us. Each time that fiesty, fighter comes out in us, we'll remember where she came from, and recall how you helped us, then remind us how we can help others. A poet said, "The loveliness of a rose never dies, but only passes into other lovliness" and that is what I hope for you.  Take care,

      Pat O.

      Hi Sharon.  I am so sorry.  You have been an inspiration to us old time posters and the newbies.  You are a beautiful beautiful person and should be so proud of yourself for being a melanoma warrior.  We are all fighting for you.  Love Nicky from Australia formerly from New Zealand.

      May you feel God, Jesus and the holy spirit tenderly holding you. May you feel their warmth and safekeeping.

      Thank you for always responding even when you were going through all so much of your own battle with this disease. You were always one of the first people to respond, especially after a “newbie” would post.

      Thank you for your fighting spirit..it makes me want to step up and fight harder. Thank you for all the hope that each of your posts provided.

      Love,

      I couldn't reply, and I couldn't NOT reply either!  It's taking a few days to digest…..Godspeed, Sharon.  MPIP is a much better place because of you!  You are a brave and strong lady that will be remembered forever.  If ever a time for a miracle…..

      We are all blessed to have known you here.

      Now more than ever, I realize that you saying goodbye to us is a gift that many people might not be able to experience without this beast we all know so well.  And its a beautiful, bittersweet thing.  It hits home for me more than ever after the lives that were lost so suddenly in my town last week. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing everything with us.

      Oh my………… I can't even begin to describe all the emotions I am feeling right now………….. I am so sad and will miss you so very much.  I admire your strength in life and respect / appreciate your fight.  I am awed by how you are doing mel your way and on your terms. 

      I wish you comfort and peace, and contentment when your time to soar with the angels comes.  You will be sorely missed yet always remembered by us.  Your spirit will never die and the world was a better place because you were in it.  You were my wingman as our paths were so similar at the same time.  Now they diverge…..

      You remind me so much of me and I feel like I am missing an arm or a leg now………….  It has been an honor to know you.  May your final journey be on your own terms.  I love the quote BG uses regarding skidding into the grave sideways with champaign in one hand, strawberries in the other shouting yoo hooooo what a ride.  I will always smile when I think of you, you will be sorely missed.

      Sharon,

      I'm so sorry to visit the board and read of your news.  I greatly admire your fighting spirit and bravery. As an old timer here, when I do come back to visit I look for familiar names and yours is one. I hope you find peace at the end of your journey and are able to get some pain relief. May you hold your loved close, remember your good times and leave this earth feeling and knowing how much you are loved.

      We will carry on the fight for all Warriors both passed and still here fighting. We were honored to have you as a part of the MPIP Family.

       

      May your spirit fly free of pain. Godspeed Sharon.
