If anyone can see the beauty that life beholds...even in the smallest of things... you are most certainly one of those exceptional few ;-)
If anything, I've transformed into a meaner, crueler Ockham. My boundless fury knows only the icy breath of winter, and my inner fountain of rage is warmed only by the embers of hatred. :)
"Who you are speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say to the contrary." ;)
Your libelous sentiment is noted in the book of reckoning, Madame. It is noted.
those who comment, do so as they see an Angel:
and, not in name.. you're cool, well cool.
The difference in their posture and body language was so apparent from the surgeon in my father's case. These two doctors, after 7 hours of prep and surgery with my mom, looked like they had just stepped off of a golf course. They were smiling and relaxed. Mom did great. Nothing looked suspicious or anomalous. They removed 10 lymph nodes and they look good. We're only waiting on pathology to give us the final green flag, but so far, we have all good news!
Thank you for all our prayers!
I remember waiting for my moms Biopsy, you are very observant
regarding the doctors.
May I also add my kindest wishes, for their recovery Joli.
*Hugs* all round.
That is wonderful! Thank you for sharing the good news! I hope everything continues well on her path to full recovery and remission.
that's GREAT news!
yay for everyone!
Your Mom sounds like an amazingly strong woman. Best of luck to you all.
I'm going to continue holding my breath until they're both pronounced cancer-free. They have so many advantages, not the least of which is a loving, caring and immensely strong daughter, on their side.
When I was 19 Mom had one breast removed- some lymph nodes was any issues. But due to meds, love and support she is now 22 years cancer free. I remember that fear- and I only can say I am thinking of you and your family.
Be strong and know others are here if you need to talk, to just be something else for a second.
My partner, Christy, and I have been following all the progress... She helps me a bit with understanding some of the medical terms. It's a plus to have your own personal nurse *big smiles*
We're both sooo happy for you all, and I know there will be nothing but good news to come :)
I will keep mine coming, can never have too many. I am so glad they are doing well and I hope they continue to recover quickly.
*sends you prayers and cupcakes*
I have you and your parents on a prayer list.
*sending prayers your way*
And a hug for you! ;)
awww babes ..
You got it.
*hugs and much love*
Prayers for you all and healing energy too. Be strong and positive, it matters.
:( *hugs for the Joli*
I have you in my thoughts darling *hugs*
I got so much done today, but it was all like pulling teeth...right up until the end when it all fit together so perfectly. I still have to get my kidlet to Karate, stop at Office Depot for a few things, and get to the board meeting for 7 tonight. But I think I could probably float through each remaining task if I tried.
I have a small blog on the Center's website. I wrote an entry today.
God teaches me the same lesson again and again in my life. I forget...who's in control again?
My original comment vanished.
Maybe it was G-d trying to tell me something!
So with fear of reprisals I will just say that 'YOU ROCK'!
I wish I was there- I drive all kinds of forklifts, tractor trailer (just a little) and any kind of smaller trucks you can throw at me. I would love to just help you as you help others. :)
But you, my lady, are doing very well on your own two feet. With the lord on your side.
"I got so much done today" - credit where credit is due. You do so much and claim so little.
Isn't it kind of cool when things fall so well into place like a jig saw puzzle? I, too, am often amazed, standing in awe, at the will of the higher powers that be. You made me think and miss back to a time when I would drive around on forklifts and such. Most definitely one of the best aspects of a prior military career ;-)
Thank you, Sweetheart, for reminding me of a couple good times I've had *hugs*
I've always loved a plush, green, cooling garden. My hand, however, seems most adept at turning green things to a crispy, withered shade of brown. These days I leave them to cope for themselves rather than spilling drab hues upon them. I'm glad that you do better and bathe in the experience.
Flowers and a garden show you the circle of life, and for that I always loved mine. Ahh those moments of laying the flowers out, trying to pick the order to plant. :) A joy I have to wait a few more weeks for, lucky people in the south.
Pictures... I want.. pictures of the new garden when you are done. :)
There was this tree I read about once that grows like gangbusters, I think it was called an emporer tree or something. They looked beautiful and bloomed. Lemme check and see, ok?
Candles still burning Joli, for them, and for you.
...and these same friends that share in the beauty of the gifts you give to us... your heart, your inner strength, your wonderful words... we will be here to share your hurt and take your burdens too.
Just give them to us.
You help me to remember the important things in life, thank you. *hugs*.
Always, ALWAYS in my thoughts. x
Here if you need me. Wish I could do more for you and your family at this time.
You are wonderful
Your words make me cry for the pain your family is in but also there is such hope and faith in them and true appreciation of what you have there. It's great that you are not letting the bad take away from all the good that still exists between you. My prayers are with you.
Does that include you as well? *HUGE HUGS*
You are one of those few friends I'm most honored to have and my care runs deeply for you. As always, I'm here when you need me, and even if/when you don't ;-)
time for me to start gardening too.
A tightly wrapped, complex and intriguing paradox with a bit of dirt under her fingernails and paint drips on her shoes.
Honest dirt is never dirty.
Canna lilies, aren't they of the banana family, with a bright red beauty?
Thank you for this stroll through your garden, now wash your hands!
Hmmm, yet another reason to admire you from afar. Planting roses and edible things in my grandmothers garden was always a treat followed by sweet sun tea. I miss my nanna, but remember the time being well spent and the earth like a long time friend. Thank you for reminding me of this. :)
