i just got the most amazing news!

i feel like i need to shout it from the rooftops! i am bawling like a baby and i can not stop crying...

 

MY SON IS CANCER FREE! his oncologist just called me to tell me the news. i feel like all of the months of holding this stress and the tears in are finally exploding from me full force. when i called my mom to tell her she thought it was bad news because i was sobbing so uncontrollably! seriously the most amazing words i have ever heard in my life <3 <3 <3 

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

No nothing false or insincere at all alligator tears mean big streaming tears and actually I'm a little taken back that you could even think I was being insincere on something like that. Really??

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

i don't think it ever crossed anyone's mind that you were being insincere, i think we were just confused about the meaning of alligator tears, thinking they meant fake tears Smiley Happy i know i certainly didn't take it any way other than how you meant it Smiley Very Happy <3 <3 <3

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I don't think Rikkie was actually accusing you of being insincere. Anyone who knows you on here would know you wouldn't do that.  She was simply pointing out that with your misuse of the term you could be misunderstood.  Crocodile/Alligator tears actually does mean "a false or insincere display of emotion."

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

Well certainly let me clarify what I meant that to me Crocodile Tears "when I say it" means big streaming tears. I didn't know we were beginning to analyze terms of expression. Hopefully everyone understands clearly with no confusion.

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I'm so sorry if it sounded like I thought you were being insincere! It's 100% not how I meant to come across! I only meant to point out I thought the expression had a different meaning, I'm so sorry if it hurt you, that would never be my intention. Smiley Sad From what you said it was obvious how touched you were about the whole situation, and I never ever meant to turn that into anything else in anyone's mind. I did google the phrase and it apparently is commonly used to describe a false display of emotion, and since I was quite certain that was the complete opposite of when was actually happening I only meant to ask if I was correct about the way the phrase is usually used. Again, I didn't at any point think your words were anything but from the bottom of your heart, I'm sorry if it sounded that way. Smiley Sad

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

Well I'm a little taken back that some thought my remarks on such a heart felt subject were insincere/false that's a little hard for me to process right now.

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I'm more than a little taken aback by the fact that this thread is now being used for anything other than to give love and happiness to Jaimelove and her baby. Smiley Sad

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

It's not being used for anything other than that, I believe I expressed love and happiness for her.I think it's sad that something negative had to be brought up so I'm moving away from this thread all together.

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I'm a Partner in Hope at Saint Jude as well!  They are awesome! And unlike Kids Wish Network (which I supported up until a couple of years ago) the money they raise actually goes to research and the kids.

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

That's such awesome news, Best wishes for his continued good health!

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

That's wonderful news. I'm sorry you were going through this with your son. And I apologize for the silly back and forth we had about free gifts, it was silly and I am genuinely glad your son is cancer free.

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

sometimes our stress just gets to us and comes out in stupid ways. and i was totally understnding of that (and even when i try to say that i understand i come off as cranky non understanding because, hey, i'm cranky! haha) no hard feelings Smiley Happy thank you so much for your kind words! 

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

Yup I completely understand. Again congrats Smiley Happy

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

how precious, you two kissed and made up - we have another winner here - sometimes we could use more understanding on BT - kudos to Jaime and Misscg Smiley Happy clapping my hands w/ standing ovation!

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

So happy for you!!

Cheers, and good health to you and your family!

Thank you for sharing, we'll support you through anything (we're quite good at celebrating too!)

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

Hooray! I'm so happy for your family! It must be a HUGE weight lifted off your shoulders right now. He's going to grow up and be able to do all the stupid, careless, risky things little boys do and hopefully never remember what it's like to be really sick. Your biggest concern will be keeping up with him, I bet. Smiley Happy 

Re: i just got the most amazing news!
