update on Crecco

Just to let everyone know, I spoke to Chris today, and she is not feeling great, so has not been online..she has 3 more days of the antibiotic, and will be going in tomorrow for some blood tests (she also had a cat scan done yesterday but does not have any results yet). On a good note she is feeling somewhat better and has promised to get online as soon as she feels better.

Just wanted to post for those who might have been worried about how she is doing.
all the best

Dear Linda,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and what happened at the service.  I truly believe that our spirits become free beyond this life and what you said regarding the butterfly was proof.  You put it beautifully.  Thank you.

Linda,
Thank you for sharing this. I know those of us at the Chicago event wished that we could have been there. This gives me goose bumps, it is so meaningful. Your sister was a beautiful woman, inside and out. I loved her.

Yesterday was Chris's service. It was a very beautiful service. My daughter (Jamie) suggested that we realease balloons at the cemetery. We had several teal balloons and a few white balloons aired up first thing in the morning. We all stood around and as we released our balloons, a butterfly flew passed us and followed the balloons up into the air. We applauded. It was truely the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I feel Chris's free spirit flew away on the wings of her butterfly.  I want to thank each and every one of you terrific women for being in my sisters life.  Linda.

I hope one way or another I will be able to reach everybody that meant so much to Chris. I am Chris' sister Linda and should have be in contact much sooner, but have been terribly distraught and staying with our mother to try to comfort her. Chris lost her tough but couragous battle with OVC on Wed. the 21st. She was at our mom's house surrounded by all of us that love her. She is a beautiful woman wiwth a huge heart and will be greatly missed. The emptiness is already felt. I just wanted to try to express my thanks to each and everyone of you for being there for Chris, during her battle, in ways that we,as family couldn't. You meant so much to her and helped her find the strength to fight this battle through to the VERY end. Chris was very tough and brave and very seldom let her family see her fears. I don't use words and express myself as beautifully as Chris, but please know you helped her in many ways and she dearly loves you all. Thank you for bringing that much more happiness and love to my sisters life. Love to all. Linda

Chris,

I hope the draining brings relief and the new drug works for you.  I say we should have a Pina Colada party to support your Zolada treatment. I think Irene is on to something.

Hi Chris,
Hopefully after they drain your left lung, that will bring some relief.  I also hope the new chemo pill works. I like Irene's idea of it sounding like Pina Colada, if only right?? Sending big hugs and love,
Colleen

Always good to hear from you. I've never seen anyone mention that medication before. Hmm, Zolada, rhymes with Pina Colada but not as sweet I'm sure. Let's hope it makes you feel better.

It's a day by day thing for now but I also hope you can make it to the Chicago get together. The love and laughter will do so much for you and best of all, no side effects (maybe a few new laugh wrinkles).

hugs to you,  irene

  Just a short update as I am stilll not feeling weel. I started on a pill form of chemo today called Zolada. It sounds like there is a waiting list for the clinical trial so we are now checking into Northwestern. Tomorrow I have my left lung drained, so hopefully that will help some.
  I love you all and wanted to kee you up to date on what is going on.

Chris,
This stinks!! I wanted to say a stronger word but figure they will block it. I am so sorry to hear this. I am hoping when they drain your other lung, that will bring more relief and maybe you will feel a little better. I am glad you are checking out Northwestern and MDAnderson. Something will come through for you!!! I am keeping you in my prayers daily and I can't wait for Chicago. I want to hug you in person (gentle hugs).  
Love,
Colleen
