Sharon (Bohan 54) .. Prayers and Positive Thoughts are needed.

Sharon's husband, Barry, asked me to post the following:

Sad to report that Sharon is not doing well at all - she was admitted to the hospital over here in Windsor quickly after an exam by her oncologist on Monday morning.
We went to see him because she was vomiting every morning for three days straight and had not pooped for several days.
They did CAT scans and other tests and a surgeon told her that her belly is "full of tumors"
We thought her bloating was due to fluid build-up (she had been on I.V. at home for about 2 weeks) but yesterday when they went in with a probe they said there is not enough fluid to drain...so all the extra mass around her belly is tumors..the surgeon also said the constipation is caused by tumors strangling her colon and constricting it... even a colostomy would not help...he says no more chemo (she had one infusion of Doxil last week)
So, needless to say we are all quite bummed out - her oncologist said yesterday she is not well enough to be at home for the foreseeable future...she is scheduled to speak to a social worker this morning regarding the possibility of living at the hospice.

That's about it for now - maybe you could pass along the gist of this email to her friends on the Medhelp forum if it seems appropriate...I don't know how to navigate those sites very well.

Sharon,

You are such a good friend and you've helped me through the tough days after Jan passed.  So, I'm here now to help you through this rough patch.  I know you're a fighter and with the support of your friends here and your family, you can do this.  Keep fighting!  Love Lisa

I am not sure we've ever posted to each other, and I have been away from the forum for a long time. But as a long-standing member here, I have followed your journey and you have touched me deeply.

Praying for you tonight. Peace and love to you and your family.

Sharon,  

It was almost a year ago that I joined this community.  You were the first person fighting this cancer to post to me about my mom.  You were diagnosed about a month before my mom also with 3c.  I have followed your journey carefully.  I have been blessed by your encouragement, not only to me but to so many on this forum.  I am just heartbroken that you are suffering right now.  Know that my prayers are with you.

Many thanks for your kindness and concern.  Even when you know this time will come, it still hits like a Mack truck.  You all have softened the blow as much as you can.  Keep propping each other up, it really has been good for me.  
Won't say good bye just yet...
