Best wishes to her and hope for a smooth recovery. My mom had stage 0 breast cancer years ago and even the treatment for that really took a toll on her.

Seems to me that there are some pretty cold-hearted folks out here today. I typically do not care one way or another about the "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" on posts, but the overwhelming number of down votes on a thread about a woman who went through hell mentally and emotionally in her cloistered life, and is now battling cancer, says a lot about the people on this forum.

Not cool people, not cool!
