View Full Version : Hit bump in the road had to cancel October trip might have to cancel December!
08-07-2006, 06:24 PM
I want all you folks to know how great I think this board is I read it everyday even though I do not post as often as I once did.
This past week I was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer I have a large tumor in my pelvic area. I have gone thru my first treatment of chemo this past week. I am just starting to feel a little better from this treatment. Due to the schedule of treatments that will most likely go into October. I had to cancel that trip and if my strength and energy does not return in time I most likely will have to cancel my December trip also.
I am so sad Disney is one of the things I look so forward too each vacation! :ill:
I did get a little laugh last night while laying here in bed watching tv they showed the epidsodes of Roseanne where they take the family to WDW. The show was everything we sometimes talk about here. When it comes to certain types of people very funny. :)

You have my deepest sympathies at being diagnosed with this most dreadful disease. Will you have to undergo surgery as well or so far just chemo/radiation?
Many :angel: , :hug: , and :pixie: coming from Ohio!!
Double :hug: for having to cancel your trip. That really stinks when you're looking forward to it. I would love to go more frequently but simply cannot-so I heed the words someone said in a previous post-Disney will be there, waiting for me.
Please keep us posted on your treatments!
08-08-2006, 02:43 AM
So sorry. Lots of :pixie: :pixie: :pixie: :pixie: on the way to you.

Prayers and pixie dust that you'll be better sooner than you think.
I'm so sorry you had to postpone your trip.
08-08-2006, 10:54 AM
I am so very sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I had a bout with the cancer critters myself, so I know how scary and overwhelming it is at first, trying to understand what is happening and all that is being done to your body. Sending you loads of :pixie: and well wishes. I know you are disappointed about your Disney trip, but believe me, it will be even sweeter than before when you do get back to it. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, but you can do it!! :hug:
08-08-2006, 11:54 AM
:pixie: More pixie dust and good thoughts headed your way. Keep positive - you can beat it! :thumbsup:
08-08-2006, 12:03 PM
I'm so sorry to hear that you're having to deal with cancer. I pray for the very best for you and hope that you will feel better in time for your December trip. :hug:
08-08-2006, 01:39 PM
You are in our thoughts and prayers. I cannot imagine the stress and strain you are going through right now. Please know that your Intercot family is here for you. I can see that lots of pixie dust has already come your way, but in my experience you cannot have too much. So here is some more! :pixie: :pixie: :pixie: :pixie:
I'm sorry about the postponment of your trip(s). Know that Disney will be ready for you when you are ready for it. Take care and we'll see you on the boards...
08-08-2006, 07:33 PM
Sorry that you've joined the ranks of those of us fighting the :thedolls: Much :pixie: to you (mine glows in the dark as I had treatment last week)!
One of my great joys and diversions during treatment is music, and Illuminations and Wishes definitely top my play list.
We had to cancel our trip last year because of my ever changing treatment schedule and hospitalizations. This only contributed to our trip in May being that much sweeter and I'm sure you will now understand why our rescheduled trip this November will be so special to me and my DS.
We fight a powerful opponent but ample doses of :pixie:, positive thought, :angel:, great :doctor: and :nurse:, support (I totally recommend you find a support group be it through The Wellness Community or CancerCare — both of which have face-to-face groups and virtual online groups), and dreams of Disney will help get you through.
08-08-2006, 07:37 PM
I'm so sorry for you and your diagnosis.
May God bless you and give you the strength that you need to fight this disease.
Know that people care.
Disney will always be there when you are feeling better.
My prayers are with you.
08-08-2006, 08:23 PM
Prayers are with you. Hope you are feeling better soon!!
08-08-2006, 08:39 PM
You folks are a great group thanks for all yours wishes!!
09-20-2006, 08:32 PM
Hi all since you where all so supportive I wanted to update you on whats happening. We did have to also cancel our December trip because of the treament schedule. Now for the good news we scheduled a new trip today for March really looking forward to that one it will be a long time with no WDW and on an even better note. I had a new CT scan last week and the Dr let me know today that I have had significant shrinkage in my tumor and that he his very pleased with the way treatment is going. So great news in two places today to lift my spirits. Thanks all again for your support and wishes! :cloud9:

Hi all I want to let you all know how well its going I had a new ct scan and the tumor is completly gone. The Dr has reduced my treatment schedule down to 6 from 8. So the really good news is that we where able to reschedule our trip in December for the 7 thru the 11th the room selection was not that good we could only get a room at CBR but thats ok I am so happy we can go. We where also able to get the ADR's at places and times we wanted which really surprised us because of everyone saying how hard it was for them to get the ADR's they wanted. We where also able to get new tickets for mvmcp for the 7th on our arival day. I am just thrilled thank you all for the pixie dust and prayers!!! :thumbsup:
10-05-2006, 07:19 PM
Congrats on the great health news, and being able to reschedule your trip! :thumbsup:

Hello my intercot friends it has been a while since I updated you about this terrible disease.
Well all I can really tell you all now is that I have been thru several kinds of cancer treatments and none of them have worked for me. My Doctor is trying very hard by conferencing with doctors all over the conuntry to find something that will work for me but he keeps coming up empty handed. There are a couple of drugs he is trying to get for me that are called quality of life drugs but they have not been aproved for treatment with the type of lymphoma I have. The last I heard thou the insurance company was going to give in and let me have these two drugs he wants to give me. So that is a bit of a brite spot. The other brite spot is that I promised whatever happened I would get to WDW one more time with my significant other. Well that happens tomorrow we did a last minute trip leaving the 11th and coming back on the 20th. yipee yipee for us. We are so happy that we where able to do this. We plan on really taking our time to enjoy ourselfs while there this time. Most of the hotels where booked but we where able to get into the POP for our entire stay. We where also able to get ADR at the places we wanted to eat the most which really made us happy. This being a school week vacation. We thought we might have to stay off property and be stuck with table service but it came together good so we are happy for this. We will enjoy are selfs at our favorite place on earth!! We will have our lap top so look for a few short dinning reports along the way. :party: :mickey:
04-11-2007, 12:22 AM
First off, I am sorry about your diagnosis. I am sending plenty of :pixie: to you.
I am glad you are getting a trip to Disney. It will do wonders for your spirit and body.
04-11-2007, 12:50 AM
Sending as much :pixie: :pixie: as I can for your trip, and for some good news when you get back! I am glad you are getting a chance to take this trip - I am praying it will lift your spirits and help you get through whatever lies ahead - laughter and joy can be the best medicine sometimes!! Good luck!!
04-11-2007, 02:13 AM
Sorry about the reappearance of the :thedolls:
I pray that your doctors identify a new cocktail that will erradicate the disease for once and for all!
In the meantime, I wish you a magical trip. I know that Disney trips do so much to lift my spirits. I'm sure a hug or two (or three) from Mickey will lift yours as well.
04-11-2007, 03:16 AM
I'm so glad that you are able to go:mickey: I hope you both have a wonderful time. I can't wait to read your reports:thumbsup:
04-11-2007, 09:45 AM
May your trip be magical and sending :angel: prayers and :pixie: for your continuing battle. Wishing you the best, have a great time.
04-11-2007, 09:59 AM
Have a wonderful trip!
:pixie: :pixie: :pixie: Lots of pixie dust for you as well.
04-11-2007, 08:49 PM
I hope you have a truly magical trip!! I will say extra prayers for your treatment. I am going through a second round of thyroid testing and beat the :thedolls: last time. Don't ever give up, my uncle was on hospice for leukemia and he is in remission now.
04-11-2007, 09:48 PM
we will be praying for you, and here is some more pixie dust.
:pixie: :pixie: :pixie:
04-11-2007, 11:23 PM
My prayers are with you and your family. Your health is most important now and when you are back to feeling 100% Disney will be waiting for you.
May God grant you strength and healing as you fight.
04-12-2007, 01:59 AM
That's terrific news about the rescheduled trip for March. I hope your treatments countinue to go well.
