      Peppermint.  Me attending groups is definitely helping.  But...you as, "A Helpingheart" along side Mickie and all the other Cancer Compass members are constantly pulling me in a postive direction I love to be going in. I too am looking for my cure. Pete is closer to coming back to himself,  than I ever thought possible.  C.C. group hugs Pete.

              Hi Ana Im sorry I missed out reading your post back February 10th.  I just read it now. I wish more people could have replied.  Im sorry that you were all alone when your mom passed away. Im sorry for how alone your are now.  Grieving a loved one, spouse,  parent, or a child is impossible to fathom or understand. Even if you can relate its still different for everyone.  I can only tell yo...

                  Peppermint  Thank you for your happy cheers.  I just found out yesterday that my Wednesday group is having a schedule change to Tuesday's at 11am.

                    I concur 100 percent with Punky.  Her explanation has worked for me. She said it way better than I could've done. :)

                      Thank you tippy.  Everyone knows in the cancer world knows that PET scans are the pinnacle of all milestone tests. I wish it was tomorrow,  but that would then negate 3 beautiful months of being together. I will wait patiently but with some anxiety.  Life is so precious and so fast. Where did all the time go from high school together in 1989/1990'----------27 years ------->2017 whew!  I can...
