Please Note

Posts here will be few and far between for now. The snag I mentioned a few weeks back is actually more like an unraveling of sorts in the form of cervical cancer. The long and short of which means surgeries (#2 tomorrow) and then chemo therapy and radiation treatment for 6 weeks as soon as I've recovered from that. I'm not looking forward to any of it but I know I can do it. I've had many life experiences that have been far from ideal and so I hope that they might have prepared me for dealing with something like this. . . and I am ever an optimist. I will be fine but it will be awhile. So, send a healing vibe my way if you have some energy to share and I'll be forever grateful. I'll be back here as I am able.

P.S.-Please know that I hate to air such private real life ugliness online but I hate to just stop posting without an explanation and I know that "life" happens to all of us so you'd probably forgive my social faux pas with that in mind.

I am an administrator in a cancer center and so what you have posted today, while deeply personal and for most private, doesn't seem ugly to me but instead is a normal part of what I see and feel around me everyday. The fact that you are able and willing to be open about it, to put words to it, will serve you so well. I have found, after going through this with so many, that those who deal with it as one of many experiences, and use their normal good coping skills, find that they've made it easier for others to support them. I am sending many positive thoughts and a lot of energy to help you through the rough times until you come out on the healing end of this. I love your blog and draw energy from it, I'd be happy to be of service to you if I can help in anyway with info etc. You just have to say the word. I saw a woman the other day, she was probably in her late 70s, wearing a headband with bobbing pumpkins on it and she was carrying a bottle of champagne. She was in to celebrate completion of radiation with the staff that had cared for her. She said "cancer really sucks, but I'm not about to let it suck the life out of me.". I loved that.

I read your blog early this morning. I thought about it all day. I just had to come home and sign up (I have never left a comment before on any blog) so I could tell you I will be thinking of you and praying for you. I have learned from past experience that if you send it out there you will connect with so many people to draw strength from. God bless you.
