    Well, I guess you can call this venting or stress relief. I posted awhile back "What are you thankful for". I don't know if it was pride on my end, or was it something I forgot.
    We got news today that my wife's cancer is back, and I would rather have my truck land on me than to hear that news.
    She (we) will see the doctors on Monday, with her surgery set before the new year begins.
    I tell you all what I went through hell the first go around, and I am not doing to well with this news. I am pissed, mad, upset, and would just rather put a person on the ground than to listen to them speak. Guys I'm torn up about this, don't know if I am coming or going. I am doing my best to put up a good front, just don't get the whole thing. I keep asking myself why, why her. She has done nothing to no one, but yet, this needs to go on in her life.
    Sorry if I seem beside myself, but this truely sucks.
    I do want to say THANKS for all the kind words in past posts, it really means alot. Very few places do I hear/read words like that.
    Sorry for the vent...............Bill

    You never need say your sorry for how you feel. I know the anger, worry and sadness that is going through your mind right now. Prayer helps a lot, I will continue to pray for her and for you, brother.

    So she beat it the first time? Sounds like the cancer is a glutton for punishment and wants its ass handed back to it a second time. Chin up. Sucks to have it happen again, but the best thing you can do is stop asking why, or how cause it's cancer. It just does. Instead think, Okay, how are we going to hand this sonuvabitch it's ass on round two. That's what your wife needs to hear and see. Even if you try to keep up the strong front while feeling those other emotions, comeon man. This is your wife, she knows you better than that, and will sense that crap a mile away.

    We're routing for you both!

    I've never understood how or why good innocent people get the worst problems. When you have people that are hateful, mean and don't care, living long healthy lives.
    My thoughts go out to you, your wife and your entire family. I hope she has a speedy recovery.

    Many prayers and lots of friends here for you to vent to, yell at and in return the upmost support to you both. Do keep us posted on things as many people out here have been touched by the nasty stuff and it does not discriminate against anyone. Hang in there and be strong
