Thoughts and prayers from Illinois.

My brother in law was diagnosed with multiple myeloma two years ago. After several months at the Mayo Clinic he is back to work and feeling great. In fact he was out mowing the lawn tonight. I can't promise how things will go for you, but have hope and get good medical attention.

You sure have had a string of bad luck.  Hope everything starts looking better soon.

Your not asking for help. You were just letting us be part of dealing with this nasty disease . Life can change very quickly . I believe in miracles and I am praying for your good health . But if we need to pray for a miracle I will pray for that too .
We have a lot of good boys and girls in harms way
lets all support them and their familys.

Sorry to hear what has happened, to you, I'm not much on praying, but I said one for you, cancer seems to look for the good guys among us that try to live right. I've been fighting it for about 4 years, now a month into a new chemo to try it out, I'm like you,  just get mad cause I can't do what I used to do, just get out of breath taking a shower. Also said a little prayer for your family, it's got to be hard on them too.
I have this forum to give me a little way to give back, my brain seems to be ok so far but with a tumor between my eyes who knows what the next day will bring, brain drain or loss of sight. Just keep fighting, and don't give up. Woods people are tough, and there are a bunch here pulling for you.

Hey Big Ed, thanks for having the courage to share these tough times with us all. Its experiences like this that make me really think hard when I start stewing about something that is really no big deal at all. Just when you think you have it tough there is always someone else that is going through something much more difficult. You my friend are that person.  I can tell you that what doesnt put you down will only make you stronger. Like someone said previously, stay positive, lots of positive self talk, visualization, some breathing techniques to keep you grounded, and of course goal setting..... to first sharpen that saw then when the time is right pick it up, rip that cord and do what you do best!!!  Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family hold strong Ed, Hold STRONG!!

Just read the message you posted Ed. You are sure I'm my prayers. I've always heard these valleys we go through are for a reason even though we may not understand them at the time. If we put our faith and hope in our Lord Jesus Christ these valleys we experience will not be accompanied alone but with the greatest super power known to man. This is really the first time I ever posted anything and not really sure I'm even doing right lol but when looking around I felt led to respond. Blessings to u bro.

Stay positive Ed. My father lived with one of those blood cancers for many years and at 92 years old it wasn't what got him. We are pulling for you.

EdK--have always enjoyed your posts, but not this one!  That said, I don't pray much, but I have for you.  One day at a time, stay positive, eat right, and you will beat this thing....We're all with you!  All the best, Rob.
