For those of you who know Sarah (lessofsarahtolove) I am very sad to report that upon reading her website, her life parter, Lorraine, has written this...

It is with much sadness that I inform you that Sarah has been in the hospital since Tuesday. She has steadly declined and is currently on life support. Sarah was the love of my life, my strength and my best friend and I will miss her dearly.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

This was posted om Sunday.

Please keep Sarah in your prayers.

01-28-2008, 04:04 PM
Oh Sarah, I am so sorry to hear this. She has had so much trouble and I was hoping she would pull through yet again.

01-28-2008, 04:06 PM

New post on Sarah's blog. Lorraine has posted that Sarah is in the hospital, steadily declining and is on life support. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with both Sarah and Lorraine.

I have no further updates at this time but will keep you all posted as soon as I hear anything.

01-28-2008, 04:19 PM
As of Sunday, the update is that she is unconsious. Apparently she had contracted a fever and its an infection that's taking over her body. I'm searching for additional information and as soon as I find anything out, I'll share. I really feel so sad and numb all over. I never thought this day would come and Its just too soon.

01-28-2008, 04:54 PM
Aww man. I'm so sorry to hear this.

01-28-2008, 05:00 PM
I am so very sorry to hear this. Sarah was an inspiration to so many of us.

01-28-2008, 05:01 PM
Lorraine, I don't know if you this but Sarah touched many here and I will say a prayer for you and her. To describe Sarah as amazing wouldn't do her justice!

01-28-2008, 05:03 PM
I'm so incredibly sorry to hear this. She's really been fighting hard these past few years. My thoughts are with her and Lorraine.

01-28-2008, 05:06 PM
Oh man :(...sending :goodvibes to Sarah and Lorraine.

01-28-2008, 05:07 PM
I am so very sorry to read this. My thoughts and prayers are with Sarah and Lorraine.

Thoughts and prayers for Sarah and Lorraine.

01-28-2008, 05:30 PM
As per a message from a member on the Hodgkins Board community:

As of 1/27/08
"Sarah's on complete life support and in Lorraine's words "Sarah's not going to make it". Lorraine will be heading back to Birmingham in the morning (today), with the living will and have the life support removed."

I haven't heard anything more than this but will keep you all updated as soon as more is available.

01-28-2008, 05:32 PM
May Sarah find her peace- she was a true warrior among us... My thoughts are with Lorraine.

01-28-2008, 05:34 PM
How simply sucky. Sarah was simply a LIGHT. I didn't really know her at all and yet she exuded such a love for life. She was infectious with her enthusiasm and I so hoped she would pull through again.

Thanks so much for all the updates. :hug: to all.

01-28-2008, 05:39 PM
Thank you for the updates. I'm sending all of my best and peaceful thoughts over to Lorraine and Sarah, that this may be as peaceful as possible for the two of them.

01-28-2008, 05:52 PM
Sending thoughts of peace and blessing for Lorraine and Sarah.

So sad.....It's not fair.

01-28-2008, 05:57 PM
Wow - what heartbreaking news. Sarah was very active here when I first started and I thought she was such an inspiration and such a beautiful soul.

01-28-2008, 06:02 PM
Although I didn't know Sarah, I did remember seeing her posting around a bit when I first came here. It's incredibly sad that such a wonderful person is being taken so soon. My thoughts and prayers are with Sarah and Lorraine.

I am so very sad to hear this. Although I don't post often, I do still lurk to keep track of some of the older members that I've been friends with for years. I was just thinking of Sarah the other day and wondering how she was. :( I'll keep Lorraine and Sarah in my thoughts and prayers.

01-28-2008, 06:51 PM
The latest update from the Hodgkins board says:

"Just got off the phone with Lorraine...
She spoke with Sarah's doctor's at Emory today who suggested she hold off on removing life support until the doctors have exhausted a couple more efforts. Today, they were trying to get her digestive system jump started again. It all just shut down over the past couple of days.

Anyway, Sarah is still with us. The doctors are saying that the chances are very low that she'll pull through, but that any chance is a chance."

Miracles can and do happen. . . . Hoping for a miracle for Sarah.

01-28-2008, 07:31 PM
There's a glimmer of hope and we all know Sarah and her will and determination... I am truly praying for a miracle... She's strong. I pray she pulls through this. Thanks Shelia for the update...

01-28-2008, 07:42 PM
I was reading over the information on the Hodgkins board and I was very glad to hear there is some hope.

She truly is a strong woman, stronger than I could ever be. I was reading over many of the comments on the Hodgkins board and she has been a pillar of strength for many there.

Sarah, we haven't given up hope.

01-28-2008, 08:00 PM
Does anyone have a link to her profile, so I can check her out? I don't recognize the name, but if I got the profile, I could see where she posted?

01-28-2008, 08:06 PM
I will be praying for her and her family, this makes my heart ache.

01-28-2008, 08:08 PM
Does anyone have a link to her profile, so I can check her out? I don't recognize the name, but if I got the profile, I could see where she posted?

This is terrible news. I will pray for Sarah and Lorraine. Sarah was one of the most vivacious and inspiring members that we ever had, and I'm sorry that I never got to know her better.

01-28-2008, 08:30 PM
Everyone who read her posts knows that Sarah is a special woman, and an inspiration to so many people. She and Lorraine are in my prayers.

01-28-2008, 10:31 PM
Oh my. I was actually thinking of her the other day.

It just doesn't seem fair. How can such an incredible woman can suffer so much?

My thoughts and prayers are with both Sarah and Lorraine.

01-28-2008, 11:22 PM
Jennifer said it, vivacious. Such a beautiful, courageous soul. Be well in peace and light Sarah and Lorraine.


01-28-2008, 11:28 PM
Oh man, this really sucks. I've had her blog bookmarked forever and I swear I check it several times a week to see if anything is going on. She hadn't posted anything in July but Sandi had checked on the Hodgkins boards and she was posting there so I knew at least she was still alive and kicking. I hope that she does pull through this and though I am not particularly a religious person I will definately say a prayer tonight and mean it with all my heart. I've missed her on this board so much but I knew she needed to spend her valuable time with people who relate to what she was going through and support them and get support back.

01-28-2008, 11:35 PM
I was just thinking of her on Sunday and happened to check out her blog and see this. I too am saying a prayer for Sarah and Lorraine and sending positive vibes.

Sarah - Girl, I love you!
Lorraine - Hang in there! The strength you have is amazing!

01-29-2008, 12:01 AM
I have been dreading this, and I just checked her blog the other day and had a sinking feeling when I saw again that she hadn't updated since July. Sarah has been a real source of inspiration and support for me in a lot of different ways, and is truly a wonderful person. I am so saddened to hear this news, but I will keep her and Lorraine in my prayers- I hope so much that she can pull through this. I still have all the PMs we sent to each other a few years ago- she really helped me out more than she probably ever thought.

If there was anyone that deserved a healthy and happy life, it would be Sarah. I hope she can pull through.

01-29-2008, 01:12 AM
Oh how sad. I haven't read any of her posts, but she sounds like a lovely person.

01-29-2008, 01:23 AM

How incredibly sad. She is in my prayers.

I didn't know her but reading your posts she sounded like a wonderful person so I will keep her in my prayers and her partner also. God Bless.

01-29-2008, 08:13 AM
Thank you for letting us know, Sandi.
Hugs and prayers for Sarah and Lorraine. :grouphug:

Haven't heard an update as of yet. I've been checking the Hodgkins boards on and off today... Sheila, have you gotten any news?

I can't stop thinking about them...

01-29-2008, 10:45 AM
Just saw this.....sending healing thoughts towards Sarah and Lorraine...

01-29-2008, 12:18 PM
Just reading some of the posts about Sarah over on the Hodgkins board. Those people are truly amazing, Sarah and Lorraine could not ask for a more supportive bunch of people. Between them and us and everyone else's lives that Sarah touched there are a lot of prayers for her.

01-29-2008, 12:32 PM
Oh, no!!!

I just now saw this. I too have been checking her blog on & off & was just thinking about her the other day & wondering when we would get an update.

I'm hoping she will pull through. Sarah was such an inspiration. :hug: for Lorraine and :goodvibes: for Sarah.

01-29-2008, 12:33 PM
I didnt really know Sarah. There were a few posts when I joined. But I get from everyones posts that she is amazing. her and Lorraine are in my prayers. I just pray that she isnt in pain....... :hug:

01-29-2008, 02:44 PM
I couldn't post last night....this just hurts TOO much :cry:
Please God....why Sarah???

Sarah, over the past few years, has touched my very soul.
She is SO strong, and so courageous, and just so amazing in every way.
Sarah has found a love that some people only dream of, and for Lorraine, I am so grateful.

If ANYONE in this world could pull through what's happening....it would be Sarah. And I am praying with all my heart...that if pulling through is what Sarah wants..that is what she'll get.

My heart is so heavy, thinking of her, and all who love her.
Sarah has touched so many more lives than she knows.

I love you Sarah, and my whole heart is with you and Lorraine today.

Please everyone, even if you're not a believer...pray for Sarah and Lorraine today.

Linda :cry:

01-29-2008, 03:09 PM
Hugs to you Linda....I can hear your pain through your words......

01-29-2008, 05:53 PM
I am so sad to hear about this.
My heart goes out to Sarah and Lorraine.:hug:

01-29-2008, 06:20 PM
So sorry to hear this news. Hodgkins sucks. When I think of Sarah, I think of sunshine. I didn't know her IRL, but her spirit came shining through in her posts here. You could sense that NOTHING kept her down. I'll keep her and Lorraine in my prayers.

01-29-2008, 11:32 PM
Just checked the Hodgkins board - no update yet.

Sarah - more prayers coming your way. Fight, Fight, Fight!! :boxing: Can't get you off my mind girl.

01-30-2008, 09:24 AM
As per John on the Hodgkins board:

"Sorry for the late update, everyone. I know you're all waiting for news. Lorraine and I played a bit of phone tag this evening. She left me a message that was mostly garbled, but basically said that the docs aren't expecting Sarah to pull out of this. If she does make it through the night, it's really just a matter of time. The have her pretty heavily sedated, so she's not suffering at all. In Lorraine's words, "She's not in any pain and is very much loved."

Lorraine said that she's just exhausted - physically, emotionally, mentally. I can't even imagine. Please continue to support her in prayer as she goes through this very difficult time.

01-30-2008, 10:00 AM
Thank you SO much to all of you who have been providing updates. Sarah and Lorraine--AMAZING women. I know I'm not a particularly emotional poster on here, but reading this thread brought tears to my eyes (probably shouldn't have read beyond the first post while I'm here at work!).

Every single post of Sarah's was always shining. When I first started coming here to 3FC, her posts stood out to me because of her positive energy and obvious joie de vivre, and that was before I even knew about the cancer.

She battled for so long. And she has touched so many. She is being taken far too soon, but, if nothing else, I'm happy she won't have to battle anymore. Her energy, attitude, personality, and spirit shone through in situations where many would have given up long ago. We can all learn a great lesson from her on how to truly love and live life.

Sarah, you're an unparalleled inspiration to me and so many others.

Lorraine, I'm so glad for Sarah to have you in her life. She was very fortunate to have your love and support.

01-30-2008, 10:59 AM
I am so very sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with Sara, Lorraine, and their family members and friends.

01-30-2008, 11:06 AM
Just wanted to add my prayers for Sarah and Lorraine -- After reading this thread when it originally started, I went back and read some of Sarah's postings, as well as visited her site and links -- she is truely an amazing and inspirational individual and surely has touched 100's of lives with her positive energy, even in the most difficult of situations. I'm sure those who know and love her are better people because of her. I wish her and Lorraine comfort at this difficult time.

01-30-2008, 01:47 PM
I'm mostly a lurker on 100 +, and I used to look forward to Sarah's posts. Even through her battle with Hodgkin's, she was always so positive and encouraging. I remember checking her blog about a month ago to see if there was any news. :( My heart and prayers go out to Lorraine, and to all here who knew and loved Sarah. :grouphug:

01-30-2008, 09:10 PM
I'm new so don't know either of them, but they will both be in my prayers

01-30-2008, 10:55 PM
She is gone (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=133059). :cry:
