Happy Birthday Melissa!

I have chemo again tomorrow, (3 weeks on 1 week off) I have a feeling they will be changing the chemo again, I'm starting to get those little blue bruises again, like when was running low of potassium. Being tired is the weirdest feeling in the world! I can sleep 24 hours straight and still feel like I just missed the missed the bed! lol When I first found out I had breast cancer, I thought ok, I'll have  it for a little while then when I am done, I done with it. You're aren't even sure how you feel about the cancer, they told me I would have 8 weeks of chemotherapy and 2 years of physical hormone replacement, I STILL don't know what exactly went wrong where but something sure didn't work out in my best interest......there are days I loaf of bread confuses me! lol

We all have our childhood issues and with my Brother he was always told he was never going amount to anything, he was no good..so My Father told him like his Father before him...My Brother's intelligence would be questioned,my Sisters's weight would always get asked even though she really wasn't overweight and you could never get away with calling me stupid! Well........I get pretty stupid now, Like a said a loaf of bread confuses me and I wish to God it was a joke! Who knew Chemo was so life altering huh?? lol

One of my buddies is in the mattress business and I am so impatient instead of waiting a few extra days I ran out and bought one by myself......instead of waiting for Jim....a queen didn't even fit in the back of suburban...I called my Brother and he saved me...(pick-up truck)....sorry BOB! Thought it was going to be a quick hop, skip and a jump and I'm in my new bed! lol Now I'm looking for a small student desk for Lil Jimmy's old room..... I have my lap top now and I am slowly getting used to it........just to keep all my paperwork on.

I never was a great house cleaner but I do want to at least look like I am putting the house in some kind of order.....don't worry I'm not going anywhere,,,,, Bob owes me lunch...they just refinished remodeling the restaurant so don't worry Bob there is still a chance you'll get to buy me lunch! lol lol lol

So what did I learn this weekend? Queen beds don't fit in suburban's, you can still call your brother to move a mattress, Bob still wants Mongolian BBQ and a lap top is not any faster than a PC!

To my friends and family that are giving me my space right now I really appreciate it, I'm not sure where my body is going with this cancer thing but it's definitely working it's way through the rest of me, I don't know how much chemo I am going to end up having, I never know how much illness I am going to have with it either, I just know it sure sucks right now to be me!

(((Kim))) You have a way of bringing humor into most of your writings, I have such a visual of your Bro trying to position a mattress on his truck bed..lol. I hope the chemo goes easy for you tomorrow, that sucks to do it right before Thanksgiving.  Have you in my prayers daily...love, Sandi

lpetty420 said...

Hello!

Just a lurker here that wants you to know that you are in my daily thoughts and prayers too.  I can't even imagine the feelings you are experiencing now!  Your strength and determination is totally admirable.  I don't think that I could be as strong as you dear warrior.   I do think that laughter is a welcomed relief to any illness and found a couple of things I would like to share with you.  Here are some bumper stickers you might find amusing:

From "I'd Rather Do Chemo than Clean Out the Garage"
  by Fran Di Giacomo:

MY WIFE AND MY MONEY GO TO CHEMO
PARDON MY DRIVING-I'VE BEEN MARINATING
CHEMO-SHMEMO-I'M STANDING UP!
WARNING: IF YOU CAN READ THIS, YOU'RE FOLLOWING TOO CLOSELY. YOU HAVE ENTERED A TOXIC ZONE, AND MELTDOWN OF YOUR CAR COULD RESULT.
HOW'S MY DRIVING? CALL 1-800-MARINATE
I'M ON CHEMO. WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE?
WARNING-CHEMO BRAIN DRIVER ON BOARD!
HONK IF YOUR HAIR FELL OUT TODAY
MY OTHER HOME IS A HOSPITAL
HONK IF YOU LOVE BALD MEN (TWICE IF YOU LOVE BALD WOMEN)
OUT OF MY WAY! IT'S A VERTICAL DAY AND I'M HEADED FOR THE MALL!
(from http://www.beliefnet.com/story/174/story_17494_1.html?WT.mc_id=NL44)

and if none of those bring a smile to your face, what about this?  http://www.cafepress.com/planetcancer.56564828
There are more items here:  http://www.cafepress.com/planetcancer if you are interested.

One more interesting site I found was here:  http://www.cancerfightingstrategies.com/immune.html

Again, I just wanted to say hello and let you know there are more prayers for you out there than you know!

Strength and Blessings to you and yours,  
(another) Linda  

gandsbrock said...

Laptops may not be faster, but they are small and cute.  Just like you!  I'm sorry about the little bruises showing up and all the tiredness and thinking issues.  This has been such a long haul for you.  I hope you are able to get done with this and get back on track with healing soon.  You are a trooper.
Stephanie

tendernoggle said...

God bless you child...you have been through so much and have always, always been so strong....I am so sorry this asshole named cancer will not leave you alone...I wish it had a real body that I could beat up and mangle and torture to death...I am that mad at it right now...God help me....
Please know that You are STILL MY HERO...You are still the strongest person that I have ever known...
God bless and heal you,
love ,
carlene

thegirlnexdoor77 said...

((((((((Kim))))))))  Praying for you to have energy and strength.  Take care of yourself.  May God tough you my friend!  Hugs,TerryAnn

inafrnz247 said...

It really does suck, Kim.  More than anyone who hasn't gone through this can understand.  More than I can understand.  All I DO know, and want YOU to know, is that you are in my prayers and with each one I also send healing strength from my heart to yours and peace for you thoughts when storm clouds hover.  

You are in the hearts of so many, Kim.  We truly love and care about you.

::tight hug::

mosie1944 said...

God bless you.  I have no words, because I've never been where you are.  But I surely admire your honesty.  I hate cancer.

jasonzavoda said...


I'm glad to see your post but I wish you were feeling better or on the other side of the chemo. Don't worry about the bread or anything else, you rest when you need it, as much as you need, and I know that a bunch of people out here on the otherside of these glass screens are busy sending prayers your way.

Hi Kim,

I pray that you are well.  I fear that you haven't written because you haven't felt well enough to do so.  My HOPE, however, is that you're just not writing because you're too busy because you're out there shopping for Christmas and spending some much treasured time with your family.

I will keep praying for you, my friend.  Stay strong Pink Warrior.  We are all holding you up, and will be here for you regardless of whether you write to us j-land folks or not.  You are precious to all of us, Kim.

Much Love and Friendship,

Jamie

You have my prayers, but I'm sure you know that, and still it can be a nice thing to hear and receive. I'm sure too that we have your prayers, and I think each of us who visits here and tells you about our hope and prayers, each of us is receiving at least as much as we are giving (if not more) because you are an inspiration.

Take care of yourself and whereever your journey leads keep fighting, strength is in spirit, and what strength my spirit can give, you have.

From reading Kim's blog for a while now, I see how much she is loved and admired. I had a thought.....Tomorrow I am going to light a candle for her and offer up prayers throughout the day. There is power in prayer! It is such a pure form of love. I would like to invite everyone that reads this blog to join me tomorrow, 12/21 and also 12/22, to light a candle for Kim and pray for her. I believe she will feel the love and be strengthened by it!

Candle is lit and prayers being said on your behalf.  Rest easy, friend.  God can do amazing things.  There are miracles of all kinds...the touch of a loved one, energy to endure a busy day, thousands of sentiments of love from people you don't even know...those are all miracles.  I am praying for many miracles for you today and always.  

With all the love the Lord fills me with, I extend that love to you.

God Bless You,

Jamie

Got up this morning Kim and first thing I did was light the candle for you dear. Hope you are feeling all of our love and caring - bless you.  Arlene (AJ)

Kim,
I used your words (miracles and Hope) to find quotes that I feel you need to read.

"Miracles are spontaneous, they cannot be summoned, but come of themselves" (Katherine Anne Porter).

I find that it is not the circumstances in which we are placed, but the spirit in which we face them, that constitutes our comfort.
Elizabeth T. King

The Lighthouse Of Hope

The Lighthouse of Hope
Sits on a quiet and peaceful slope;
It shines out into the current
And warns you of the impending torrent.

It will help you on your heavenly trek,
And prevent you from becoming lost and shipwreck.
It shines out into your darkest night;
It’s your everlasting illuminating light.

The Lord is there in our spiritual boat;
He guides us and leads us and keeps us afloat.
His light shines out into the black;
It fights off and stops every attack.

He is our strength when all else fails;
His love and power always prevails.
When it looks like all hope is gone,
God’s hope and mercy will always live on!

hope to see you online in the near future.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PLEASE READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As Kim's friend I am trying to inform all of her friends here of the most current information. It is not good. Kim has been given 3 days to 3 weeks to live.  Please pray for a peaceful passing and pray for her family.  She fought as hard as she could but just couldn't fight any longer.  Thank you from the family.

faithmtn said...

I'm not sad for Kim, she will be in a better, pain free place. I am sad for the loss and sorrow her family and friends will endure. The world's light will certainly grow a bit dimmer when she leaves, but heaven will gain an angel. She will live on in the hearts of all who loved her and were blessed enough to be touched by her. {{{{{{{{{{{{Kim}}}}}}}}}}}} Thanks for sharing your journey with us.

topazscorpio27 said...

I had written a poem a while back in my journal with Kim in mind!  Hopefully, she passes peacefully and my prayers are with her family!  -Dawn-
“Strength”


What lies within me is the battles of a thousand years,

Millions of heartbreaks and about a billion tears;

Still I have power to stand strong against the slings and arrows.

Nothing will bend me, break me or make me feel weak when there’s a challenge I must face.

I will face down fear, spit in her eye, kick out my own sadness, and tell disappointment to say, “Good bye.”

No one will change my view and nothing will alter my thoughts.

The storm will pass and I will be strong.

No matter what goes on I will find the strength I’ve stored up during horrible times and bad dreams.

My heart will grow wings and I’ll soar beyond my pain;

And my insecurity.

I may cry, briefly, demand to know why, but no matter what I’m not prepared to give up and I will not say good bye.

Dear Kimberleigh,
I hope you are not suffering.  The hardest part will be leaving your Husband and Children & Mom behind.
I pray for you and for all of them for the strength to get you all through very difficult time.
We are all better people for having you in our lives.
You will not be forgotten.  You are such an amazing woman.
Love & prayers to all,
Niki

Not unexpected, but deeply, deeply saddened by this news. I hope, Kim, that you're not in pain or discomfort, and will not be when the time comes. Wishing you and your family and friends strength, both those with you in person and those out there in J-land. You're one heck of a fighter.

bmorrrick said...

Dearest Kim,

I'm so very sorry to read your friend's comment below.  I've kept you and your family in my thoughts and prayers daily and will continue to do so.  I pray to God that you aren't suffering.  You've been such a good friend and when I first started reading journals, yours was the first I got brave enough to leave a comment in.  You wrote back to me and were so sweet and encouraging....always so funny and quick witted....I'm so sad, so very sad and sorry for your family and for you.  Bless you Kim.

Love,
~Bilinda~

dplkjl said...

I have been missing Kimberleigh and will continue to miss her.  She is, by far, one of the MOST amazing women I have ever known.  I am beyond sad to hear the news, she will be in my thoughts for years and years to come.  Her family will forever be in my prayers.  As so many people know, there is just no other like her.  She has an outlook on life like no other and anyone who was blessed enough to know her is better for it. She is the most INPIRATIONAL person I have ever known.  Creative, Deep, Loving and in touch with all that really matters. I will miss her so much. -Kelly

I am truly saddened by the news of Kim.  My prayers go out to her and her family.  The coming weeks will be very hard for those left behind and will need our continued prayers for their healing.  Kim's journal was the first journal I have read on the net.  I instantly became a regular reader and will greatly miss her sense of humor.  I don't think it was by accident that I found her journal with words so inspirational and yet so humorous.  You've fought one heck of a battle courageous warrior and now it's your turn to rest easy...Loves2

    "Stars"
How do we count the lives she touched,
The light she shed for years?
How do we see the difference she made
When we're looking through our tears?
How do we know the things that are
That never would have been
Without her valiant heart that dared
To fight, and fight again?
How do we know what flowers will bloom
From seeds of yesterday,
What songs are sung and dreams begun
Because she passed this way?
How do we measure the shining place
That time can never pale
In all the hearts that cheered her on
And willed her to prevail?
How did her spirit soar beyond
The suffering and the scars
To live with one hand clutching hope
And the other on the stars?
We may not know what she left behind
On the difficult path she trod...
But we know this much: her life's brief touch
Was from the hand of God.                                
Author Unknown
With much admiration for a truly inspiring woman.  I will always remember you, Kim.
In sisterhood,
Viki

*sigh*  This make me so sad.  Never had I read a journal where someone who was facing so much was so positive.  I learned a lot from you.  Now you can rest.  So sad for us and all you left behind, but you are where you are meant to be.  :o)

J-Land.

Take Care,

Now your fight is over, you can rest dear Kim.  I am glad you were surrounded by your family.  You were a truly remarkable woman who showed such humour and courage, an inspiration to all who read your journal.  You supported me when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  If I am unlucky and mine returns, I hope I can be as brave as you.  Condolences to all the family.  Kim will be very much missed.

princesssaurora said...

OMG... I am so sorry...  I was just getting used to the idea that we were going to lose Kim soon... and here she has passed already.  I am so sorry... many many prayers being said for Jim and kids, and family and friends of Kim.  I am so happy we found each other in Jland... You gave me strength, dear Warrior Gal... I will never forget you.

Fly with the Angels..my friend

Love you!

tendernoggle said...

I know you are in terrible grief right now...so are we...her journal friends...She touched so many of us here......She never thought about herself..always worrying more about how her illness would affect her family...She was one of the most COURAGEOUS people I have ever met in my life...A TRUE ANGEL....I know she is now in Heaven among all the other Angels...without pain....without worry....but bathed in God's Holy Light.
I pray that Our Lord and Savior comforts you; her family, and brings you the peace of knowing that She is always there with you...You may not see her physical body...but her love for you will never die.
sincerely,
Carlene Noggle

In Sweet Memory....


When I think of my friend,
she is one I've not met.
Yet, through the net,
a friend she is to me.
She's laughed at my tales
Regaled me with hers.
Loved her Photography,
so good as to take
your breath away.
She cried for my hurts and
clapped for my awards.
I admired her convictions.
determination and soul.

Her family has become
dear to my heart.
Her daughter sings like
an angel, the world needs
to hear.
All of her children are
held very dear.
A battle she has been
waging against the evil C.
A warrior princess my
friend Kim will forever
be.
Would that I could lend
you strength, I would
gladly do it my dear.
For now our many prayers
are aimed at heaven as if
our thoughts were arrows
straight to God's heart.
Fight on, the good fight
my friend, my beautiful
Irish Warrior Princess.

You fought the good fight,
With all of your might.
Weary now, let the Angels
carry you, as is your right.

Till we meet again, our
beautiful Irish Warrior
Princess...

I am so sad to hear of Kim's passing.  I used to share her funny posts with my family members and how brave a person she was to me.  I am a bit in shock over this and can only say how sorry I am for your loss.  What a great loss it must be for Kim's family and friends.  I did not know her personally, only through her posts but I could tell she was such a brave and funny soul.  I will so miss her posts.  May God's angels wrap her family and friends in peace and comfort during this time.  My sincere condolences.

When I first read that Kim was only given a few days to a week to live, the tears flowed and I went and lit a candle for Kim.....I hope the candle helped to light Kim's path to heaven.....such a wonderful, loving, giving of herself to others and positive women with all that she was dealing with, such an inspiration to all of on how to live and enjoy life.  My prayers go out to her family that she loved so dearly, please know we all felt Kim and all of you were part of our family and hold a special place in our hearts for all of you.  Our Special Warrior is at peace, may that help all of her family and loved ones knowing she's not suffering anymore.  God Bless You All.....Arlene (AJ)
