MESSAGE POSTED BY JUSTAMO ON BEHALF OF PROUD WIFE

Dearest W&M

I was a little shocked to read you latest post. I was AND STILL AM convinced that your hubby is one of the lucky ones. You will have noticed from other posts that I am always concerned about the TRENDS of CA19-9. In your hubby’s case, although he has elevated markers, there is nothing really to compare them to, so it does not necessarily mean progression. If they were persistently on the increase that’s a different story but you don’t know that.

I have everything crossed for you that it’s simply a blip and there is a perfectly innocent reason why his markers are currently raised.

On a slightly separate note, you’ve always come across as an independent woman on the forum. Therefore, for you to reach out to us speaks absolute volumes and I for one will be here for you 24/7 whenever you need.

I am currently unable to log in to my account on the forum so have asked Jeni to ask you if it’s okay to pass on personal details. There are some of us forum members over on facebook who have created a very special bond and I think it would help you to join us. We can have the strangest of (non PC) conversations at times that make us laugh no matter what – a welcome relief from planet PC. Also, With facebook, you can normally always reach someone at any time – especially those of us who struggle to sleep at times – and you will find that support invaluable. If we connect outside of this forum, I will give you my mobile number so that you can always call me in the middle of the night- the worst possible time for wobbles when problems seem to magnify.

I feel so very strongly that those on your side of the divide should do it for the ones that were not so lucky, it’s hard to put into words but I hope you will understand what I mean and therefore, whatever you need, whenever you need, I will be here for you.

Now come back to us with some good news please! (((positive vibes))) and nothing other than (((positive vibes))) floating your way right now.

Lots of love
PW xxx

PW, I am not a religious person but in this case the only phrase I can think of that does any justice to what I'm feeling is "bless you"!

I would love to connect on Facebook as I could sure do with a lotta light relief from Planet PC. I might have to get one of my kids to show me how to use it as it's always been a bit of a mystery. But yes, absolutely, I await Jeni's email with eager anticipation.

W&M xx

Hi, W&M, hope things are OK today. I don't Face or Tweet but if ever I see mention of a group called Planet PC or Blips'R'Us I'll know who's behind it.
Thinking of you,
Love Mo

YAY! I'm back. You can't get rid of me that easily!

W&M I've just messaged Admin again to pass my details onto you. Don't worry about Facebook, I'd never used it before either and only joined once I lost hubby. Can always talk via WhatsApp if that's your preference?

The real Proud Wife looks forward to chatting with the real W&M!

Hi W&M and PW,

I am not sure what has happened, but the email would have come from nurse@ not admin, and it was sent Friday am to you W&M.

Clearly it did not reach you.
However it looks like you are fine with email exchanges, so i shall do this for you!

Once again, apologies about that.

Kind regards,

Jeni.

PW, gremlins must have attacked my email as I haven't received your message. I'll give the nurses a call to get your contact details.
