Just Live

Sometimes, at 3am, you spend too much time on blogs and message boards and come across something like this that makes you sob uncontrollably: Writer Alicia Parlette, who moved many readers with ‘Alicia’s Story,’ dies.

There are worse things in life than Stage 1, TNBC. I hope I can take Alicia’s advice to heart: “She wants everyone to know that cancer sucks but always choose life and just do your best.”

  1. Do not concern yourself with drug addiction. You do not have the psychological makeup for it and you would need to take it for a longer period. Take the Ativan fo sleep for a few days then off a day or two. Give me the best fathers day gift. Go out with will and have a good day. Use my cc for a nice meal.

  2. Referring to the above request from your dad, we all know that “Father Knows Best” ! Enjoy that nice meal with Will, today. Your blog certainly communicates, very well, what you are going through and all the challenges that you face and conquer. Please know that I continue to think of you, on a daily basis, Cara. Prayers are with you always.

  3. I wanted to wish you a belated happy birthday.
    You are going through so much. I hope the meds help you to sleep a bit. I came across a letter you wrote to another blog when you were first diagnosed and you wrote how lucky you were that you started your journey of testing and surveillance so early. I hope you still feel some of that feeling.
    I thank god that you got tested when you did. Love you Hope you have a good day.

  4. Cara, first….Austin and I wish you a very happy birthday (a bit late), and many, many, many more happy, healthy birthdays to come.

    Although I have hardly seen you over the last 10 years, you have held a special place in my heart ever since I first saw your mom’s ultrasound of you! You touched my heart then, and you touch my heart even more, today. Your strength and courage are beautiful. Reading your blog has brought tears to my eyes–both for the pain you have had to endure and for how you are facing this challenge of a lifetime. With such traits, I know your future will be bright.
    You are always in my thoughts and prayers
