Your consult with the oncologist sounded very good. I will keep praying for you. You must be one special mom and this must be a very special baby.
Love and prayers!

I'm so happy you have found a good doctor and that they are looking at treatments to use sooner rather than later. Many many prayers that you are in the early stages. Will they give you an Epi for the bone marrow biopsy?

That is amazing that your oncologist is so experienced with treating women in your circumstance and I feel better seeing that you feel better. I am holding onto hope that everything is still in early stages. Thank you so much for keeping us updated. You will be in my thoughts and prayers for the long haul <3

I'm so sorry to hear you are going through this. I will be praying for you and your little bub, try to think positive your baby needs your strength and mental attitude can make a big diff in stress levels. I hope its in the early stages and they can eradicate any signs of it very soon.

All they will give me for the biopsy is a localized injection of novacain, since I'm pregnant. I'm very nervous about the pain. For my surgery yesterday all I got was a novacain injection so I felt much of the surgery because the lymph node was so deep in my tissue. It was the most excrutiating thing I've ever experienced.

I amazed at your strength already through this. Hold onto that and it will get you through this!!!! My Best friend was diagnosed w/ stage 3 ovarian cancer a few years ago. She's one of the toughest people I knew. She basically said, "This sin't going to get me" and it didn't She is now in remission and doing great. I will be praying you get the same great results.

It is so good that your doctor is experienced in treating pregnant women. I'm sure that makes you guys feel better. Does she have any good support groups you could join? That was one thing my friend wished she would have had. But all the other women with ovarian cancer were very much older.'

Been saying lots of prayers for you!

I am popping in from Oct DDC, I just want to say that a little over 3 years ago my mother was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma, stage II B. She went through chemo every 2 weeks for 6 months, by the half way point she was in remission but continued the treatments to make sure everything was taken care of. I know she didn't have the added stress of bringing bub into this world, but if you are going to have lymphoma Hodgkins is the best type to have so to speak. I will be praying for you a bub, if you have any questions feel free to shoot me a pm.

I'm heartbroken for you, but so so so hopeful. I had a friend whise husband had this, and then a couple years after she got it. Strange, but tuey were both treated and are totally cancer free. KUP on everything.

Oh, Crystal! I've been so busy over the weekend, that I'm just not getting a chance to catch up. I'm so sorry to hear this news. Your strength and outlook absolutely amaze me. I will be keeping you, your baby, and your family in my prayers and pray that God heals you quickly and that this is will be as pain-free an experience as possible. (((hugs)))

Oh, sweetie, this was not the outcome we wanted to hear of. Your positive outlook, coupled with the encouraging news from your docs, is very inspirational. Please know that we are all rallying around you in support. You, are, without a doubt, a very strong woman...I'm so glad you didn't wait (nor did your doctor) in taking immediate action. (((HUGS)))
