Hi Everyone,

Still asking for your kind thoughts and prayers. I have now made it 10 1/2 months since my nightmare began with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and the return of the liver/bile duct cancer. I have surpassed my 1-3 months of life left back in April, but I am also on Hospice. These are both terminal diagnosis, but I have been blessed with a new Granddaughter in August, celebrating my Dad's 90th birthday in April, cruise in September, and 2 trips to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone in May and August. So our dear Lord has given me time, but now the tumors have taken hold in my lungs, liver, kidney, and I am on a slow decline now with losing weight weekly, tired, and getting harder to breathe.



So though I have not posted much this year, I truly believe I will join my mother and first husband before the Christmas holidays. I loved participating on this board, but I am slowing down now. I miss Suzi immensely. We talked on the phone, and I met her in
Ar**a in Nov. 2008. She is missed by all.

Thank you all for your prayers. They have been a big help.

love to all,
Timesharechick
Sharon Kerkman

Our prayers for you my friend, Sharon. I have not witnessed a spirit as yours in such circumstances. You are truly an inspiration. I so enjoyed meeting you for "our day" in SLC so many years ago. With much love, Tom & Elaine.

Sharon I have always appreciated your kindness and sweet nature here in the Swamp. I have also appreciated all the times you remembered occasions with cards and notes over the years.Your optimism and sweet nature this past year has been beyond inspiring.

God bless you always, thank you for being my friend.

Sharon, I'd give you a hug if I could. I'm happy for you that you have had so many great experiences and even a new grandchild with a diagnosis like that. Blessings to you!

Sharon, you can't believe how many times I've smiled and said to myself "you go girl!" as you continue to travel, seeing all of your photos from your travels, and on the birth of your granddaughter. Continued prayers going out to you.
