Just taking a second to say thanks

, firstly, to Rebecca (snowbabies) and to everyone who passed along their prayers, postive thoughts and well wishes and the email and cards. I am not doing as well as I had been the past year. This was just one more slap on an already sore face and it was hard to swallow all the information. I go from extreme sadness to denial to impatience. I can't really describe it. We have been dealing with this for soo long we just come to expect bad news, but being told your Child has a Brain Tumor and one that is in a VERY bad place was not really anticipated, plus, being told that her Seizures are caused by another problem that is not related and probably can't be fixed.. dashed all our hopes and dreams for her recovery. It is hard, I am very sad as you can imagine and I find anger a very easy emotion. Anyway, Just wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for being on this ride with us for so long and being so caring .. I feel often that I 'misuse' this board for this purpose, but truly appreciate the love and friendship that has come of it. Right now it is our hope and prayers that the tumor will not get bigger or they won't find anything on her spine or anywhere else on the Next , June 3rd Mri , which will allow us some more time to make some decisions for her care, otherwise, surgery will be required ASAP, which is very scary considering where the Tumor is.

Love, Nik

Nik, I'm so sorry to hear the latest about Kira. Your family is always in my thoughts and I hope for better news when you go for her next MRI.

HUGS!

I can honestly say that when thinking of you and the posts that you have put out here for the years that you've been posting, the word "misuse" has never entered my mind.

In spite of everything that you have, are and will deal with, Nik, I have found your determination to remain a positive force here admirable. You've given us plenty of laughter and allowed us to hug you when you need one and cry with you when you can't shed anymore tears. Please know that all that is felt for you here is with the deepest sincerity.

Your friend,

Sparks

OK, I can't say it better than Sparks, so just ditto her post from me. Here's to a much better MRI in June and lots of prayers and hugs for you.

I haven't been around lately and I am very sorry to hear about Kira. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hoping that her MRI holds some good news.

I've read Karen's post and you can't say it any better than that.

I totally agree with what Karen said. I just wish there was something more we could do for you to ease this awful weight you've got superglued to your shoulders. Please don't ever feel like you're misusing the board. I wish with all my heart that you had nothing more to worry about than normal 4 yo. milestones and Alex's latest antics, but, at least for right now, that's not possible. So keep us updated about Kira whenever you feel the need. And if ANYONE complains about the content of your posts, just send 'em my way, I'll give 'em what for!

XXXOOOXXXOOO
