Re: Write this name on your hand

I know it's a main site rest day. But for the rest of you that get your programming done at an affiliate or are a few days behind.

My friend Lindsay Hawkins recently gave birth to a baby and she has had some complications since the pregnancy and had to go back to the hospital already with what they think is postpardom congestive heart failure.

All best wishes, thoughts, prayers would be great right now.

On a happier note, my friend Shawn, who I posted about a bit further up the thread, is doing really well! He's actually gained some weight while on chemotherapy! Keep passing on the good vibes, please!

Cheers,

Just an update; Shawn just got his latest PET scan and it looks like the tumor is gone! He's got another few chemo sessions, then he's in the clear! I know everyone's energy helped!

Please also keep Brian in your thoughts and workouts...

Cheers,
FD

Re: Write this name on your hand

To go along with this theme, today when I do the "Remembering the Fallen" WOD at our affiliate, I will be writing "9-11-2001" on my hand.

Re: Write this name on your hand

Didn't realize that I had not posted an update or checked messages in a while...

Thanks to Heather for checking in

My wife is doing much better. We went in for one issue (completely benign) and ended up treating something else. Now it's just a matter of weaning her off the medication, as it's taken this long for her to be ready for the commitment. We started tracking 9/1, and she's kept with the diet/exercise/other changes everyday.

Love the community support, and I've got a fresh batch of sharpies in my garage ready for my next workout.

Re: Write this name on your hand

Robert,

Way to hang in there. The chemo really ravages your body, I know my hubby went through the same 2 years ago. He also stayed positive and is doing much better now. The "write this name on your hand" request is wonderul & one I will begin to do as well.

I'm a newbie to the CF community but have been doing basically the same type of trngs for some time. I just didnt know that there was an organized group of "crazies" with an official name out there. Who knew????


Best wishes

Re: Write this name on your hand

One of our own:

http://amandaredmiller.blogspot.com

Amanda is a beast. She competed at the Games this year. I had the amazing fortune of being her roommate for a couple of months, and I owe her an enormous debt of gratitude for lighting the fire under my @$$ and making me not fart around so much with fitness. She is an incredible person with an enormous heart and a positive outlook on life that sometimes borders on insanity. She has everything working in her favor except she is now a Stage IV cancer patient.

Her name will be on my hand for every WOD until she has this beaten.

Re: Write this name on your hand

I'm late to the party too but absolutely believe that the people putting out the positive vibes benefit as much as those receiving them. What a GREAT thread!

His name is Rowdy. He is 6. He spent the first four years of his life "in a bubble". For the first time since then he went back in the hospital and in in an induced coma while they drain his lungs. He coded two nights ago but is holding strong.

Rowdy.

Thanks!
