The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!
Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.
Watch this header for updates to our schedule.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I am good with 4/29, but the dates I had proposed in April were connected with availability for MondaysChild. She did not give me 4/29 so I assume she could not make it - that was why I suggested waiting until May, but we could continue with this problem of availability as we get into the time people are doing vacations, etc., and it may be hard to find a date we can all make. The other potential solution is to do a monthly gathering and whoever can make it comes, and whoever can't make it will know there will be another opportunity the following month.

Kira1234, so sorry to hear this news. (I'd want to know about spread too.) Sobering as I am just now hitting my 6th anniversary of diagnosis, with the annual labs and MO appointment in a few weeks. I'll be praying about your decisions and treatment.
Join us when it works out for you, and we can aim for your availability, if possible. We are having a hard time finding meeting dates, aren't we. I want to see MondaysChild soon too.

With everyone's crazy schedules, I'm not sure that we'll hit on a date that everyone can come. It might be worth just setting monthly or every other month ones so that we always know another one is around the corner if there are conflicts.
Kira1234 - Sorry about the recurrence, and I'd be like you as well with wanting to know about potential spread. I think that is a valid question to get answers to.

kira, I know you have both a great surgeon and oncologist taking care of you. My thoughts and prayers go with you for the best possible outcome and speedy healing. I'd like to visit you at St. Joe's if/when you'd like company. :)
