The original got so large that it was slowing down the forums and other parts of the site.

We apologize for the inconvenience/annoyance of getting a new thread.

Hello ladies.


I am so sorry for those who have lost loved ones. I wish there was something I could say or do to help, I really do. It really is a helpless feeling, not being able to do anything to help you feel better.

My school is going pretty good. I am happy with my grades so far. I have been sitting here waiting for an online lecture and no one showed up. I am quite upset.

Our heat wave finally broke here. Today is beautiful.

You all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

So much sadness. Jo, you have been in my thoughts. My DS and I went for our motor cycle licences and I was thinking of your nephew and his girlfriend, it is so sad. People are just not cautious when it comes to people on motorcycles.

Lorna, so sorry about your sad news too.

Suzie, hi and welcome.

Jo my prayers are out with you for your dear nephew and your hard year.

Lorna my heart breaks for you and your loved one's as well.

I understand all the heartache and pain as I'm praying through some friends with illness and accident and life some days seems sad in this regard.

I loved seeing that we were so STRONG as a group that we slowed down the boards by are largesse.

We've stayed strong together through all these sorrows that we're making a difference (well ok just a server crash potential but hey we're still marking our territory).

Hey dearies! PART 2!!!!!! Deb, this wonderful, cozy place you started has truly grown!!!!!

Suzi, welcome....grab a cup of java, or tea, or cocoa, or.......

I've been trying to not sit all day in front of this laptop and move this ole body. So, I've been doing a lot of housekeeping.....house is looking quite sparkly. I purchased one of those spin mops and danced the mop all over the house the other day; then yesterday I kept getting packages and had to go up and down the 2 flights of stairs; today I swiftered all the furniture and floors......I might have to start cleaning my neighbors apartments.....

I am determined to get this weight off.....

the end.

Wow, I can't believe we grew so large that we had to start a new thread. My only concern is if I can still control the front cover. I'll try to move the front over and see if I can.

Girls, I have no control over the top post and I'd really like to be able to put our latte shop sign back up so how about I open a whole new coffee shop for us. That way we can have our sign that Lorna sent me put back up and we can also have a place to save any needed info that's easier to find on the front page. Let me know what you think before I reopen.

Ok ladies. This is our new shop. It's been remodeled so it's ready for this large crowd. Be sure to sign out of the other threads and make this one your new Brat Cafe.

Well ladies it has been soooo long since I have been here, but did want to touch base. Since you have been some of my longest and dearest online friends, I wanted to share what is happening with me.

My nine lives may finally be up.

Well, it has been a couple weeks that has started my ultimate nightmare..likely death from cancer, when I have so much living to do.

I have been diagnosed with angiosarcoma, a rare, deadly and aggressive type of cancer of the blood vessel walls. It tends to recur often as it is in the vessels, so even with surgery the prognosis is bad.

I wake up in the morning after a restless night and for a few seconds forget this is happening, then reality hits. All I know is this is the start of a long, hard road. I am beyond terrified. I am living a nightmare.

What will happen to Taylor, my son, who is dependent on me? My babies, Willow and Wilson my chihuahuas?

I sit in terrified silence, as I didn't know about this cancer so was eager to google it. I was just shocked and stunned at all I was reading. I cried for days, I am still shaking and cannot stop. This is real. This is the worst news ever, I am possibly going to die. I am not ready to die. I am trying to come to terms with this, and am in such a deep depression now. I have overcome so many serious health issues that just when I feel I deserve a break in life I am hit with this.

Of course I will fight but I don't have the resources many do, such as being able to travel to get treatment at a sarcoma hospital which everyone on the sarcoma site says is necessary. I live on only a small disability check that doesn't even cover the bills, so I eat very badly just to make it.

I have been rushed from specialist to specialist the last week, and no one has experience with this rare cancer. They are all getting together this week to make a plan as this cancer grows every single day and I need it out of me. I have had surgery canceled twice this week as more complications keep arising. I am doomed.

I know I will have a lot of pain and misery coming up and hope I can tolerate it. With dialysis taking up 3 days a week and the fibromyalgia on top of it, I am at a disadvantage to start to fight this. I have had numerous health issues over the years which you all have been so wonderfully supportive of me and now to be diagnosed with this awful nasty cancer, angiosarcoma is the final blow.

I can only walk a few feet, and can barely do my showers and dress myself, it is a long painful drawn out process. I have my grown son who helps me as much as he can, he stays home with me and does everything, because things can happen at anytime with me and he does all except my personal hygiene. Idk what I would do without him.

I can't drive well at all now much less in the dark, and only a very few miles. My son does not drive, it is just me.

Right now I am just tired, fatigued down to my bones, and I have yet to start. My tiny family is also in financial dire straights, really bad. I don't know how I can even get gas money to get to UVA like I need to. I need to sell my scrapbooking supplies but have been to weak to do it yet but will as soon as I hopefully get back on my feet.

I feel so very alone in real life with this, so to have you all here is so important.

The scrapbooking and crafting community has been my sanity.

I do not know what will become of me. I try to stay positive but it is getting very hard to.

I miss you all, and remember the good old days of non-stop swapping, so fun and always good memories. I thank you all for your friendships
