    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Michelle,

    I too am so glad to see your message. I'm very glad too to know that sleepiness is your worst side effect.
    I relied so much on you and Jan and Judy and the others when I was diagnosed in July (seems so long ago now). You really are such an inspiration and a hope to me in some dark times and I'll wish you successful treatment and good health to come.
    I hope for all good things for you.

    Hi everyone,

    I am feeling a little better today and my typing is slowly improving. The radiation is going well and I am not having any side effects except fatigue, and it's not too bad really. It looks like we'll be able to take our trip to Las Vegas on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

    Thank you for the cards, emails and special things that you have sent to me. You have lifted my spirits more than I can express and I appreciate each and every one of you. I am lucky to have such wonderful support. I hope I can repay you all in some little way.

    You are all wonderful!

    Luv and hugs to all,

    Michelle

    Thrilled to see you post. I am so excited about your trip to Vegas. My DH left this AM for Reno. YaY---I get to stay home and play with my new sewing machine. Again YAY for me. No dinners to cook for 4 nights.

    Be sure to rest and relax---but have a great time.
