Dear friends,
I know many of you worry about me and often come here hoping to hear good news. Forgive me for this long silence. The last months have been the hardest months of my illness. I have been living with constant pain and unableto regain the weight I lost after my last surgery. Most of the time, morphine is not enough to make the pain go away, and when it does, it makes me sleepy. It's been a very difficult time, but I hope you all will have a good 2011, the same I hope for myself.

I truly hope you start to feel better soon. I know things are tough, just take it one day at a time. Save your energy for the important things like enjoying time with family. That is sometimes a task when pain is involved but that is a good way to use your energy though.
It was nice to see your pictures on facebook and great to see you write something on your blog.
take care and I am sending positive vibes your way always....big hug too

It makes me so happy to hear your good news Elsa. Yes, I have been thinking of you all the time since your last surgery when you posted, and realized thru the silence you were in horrendous pain.That is truly awful, but thank goodness there is a star now to look up to, with your tumour slowing down.
I wish you a fabulous new year with lots of good news all the time.
Much love from Fliss, Peter, Christopher and Janet.

Elsa,keep going!! Stay strong for your love ones. Few days ago, my father's doctor told me that my father's liver cancer has gotten to his lungs, and we are waiting for the Brivanib trial. I hope everything goes well for him and you.
