Hi Indi-o, Thank you for your yodel across the mountains and miles.  I am in that transitional stage, and decided today I am a Survivor-Thriver!   Done with chemo for two months now, and a clean bill of health, no more steroids, lab tests, etc.  I plan on heading north next week.
 
It will be good to get a distance from the endless details and boxes that moving to my son's place has generated.  I still feel like a semi-invalid, but it is more of a habit of thinking than a reality.  I do meed more exercise, but so hot here!  Even in the AM & PM, it wipes me out. 
 
Is Ohio cooler now?  Are you doing anything creative?  I hope so.  Love, Mary

Indi Indi Indi, my dear Indi, how very sweet of you to reach out...I am so so so very sorry I have not been keeping up with posting, and unfortunately the reason for my absence is terrible. I was away for a week (this part was in fact out of this world fantastic, wonderful, and exciting--I will give full report on this very soon) but, the day after my return, my Dad died unexpectedly and tragically up at the family cottage.

The past ten days have been a blur of grieving and sadness. My whole family has been falling apart. It was such a shock to all of us. My Dad was only a couple of weeks away from his 80th birthday--he was incredibly active and enjoying his life to the fullest. We are all heartbroken. We held a private family funeral service for my Dad two days ago. I have still not caught up on sleep as I spent many hours through the night this week preparing a movie of family photographs to honour my Dad at the funeral. It was good to have something to focus on, and I am very happy with the way it turned out, but the pain of losing my Dad is still very fresh, and I am so sad for my Mom, my parents had celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary this year.

I have missed you all so much, and even though I have not been able to share much news lately, I have been so comforted knowing that as soon as I got a chance to come here, I would have all you warm, compassionate, loving souls to hear my words. This has been a really difficult year for me, with so much loss. I have shed so many tears, sometimes I am surprised I have not drowned in a pool of sorrow. But there has been much joy too, and so much to be grateful for. I have been holding my children close, and remembering my own childhood with such fondness, I will miss my Dad so much.

I promise I will share good news soon, tales of my adventures and endeavours. A few good night's sleep needed first though. In the meantime, please know how much I love and appreciate you all here at No Surrender, I am so lucky to have this other world of kind, caring people in my life.

take care,
love,
janet

Yes, you do have us precious Janet.  I watch my son with his little girl and rejoice for her; there is no one like a father.  I am so sorry you lost yours without a warning at all.  Take good care of yourself, dear sister, and let others do for you, too.  I love you, shining North Star - Mary.

(((Janet))),
Thank you, for checking-in... I am sooo sorry for your loss.  Liz, who posts often in Wagons, and also in facebook, wrote some profound words today...
and I immediately thought of you...

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”
 
I remember reading about your parents, and how you shared your love of the stars and constellations, the night skies, and all things beautiful.  If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.  Sending you my deepest sympathy and condolences...

Love,
Indi

What cheer Friends?  or, as Roger Williams said to the Chief, What cheer, Netop?  It is so nice to be here - indeed the air is liquid elixir of life and the general mentality around here (Brattleboro) is so counter - culture, alternative healing and all that goes along.  My sister hooked me up with her accupuncturist for a little stimulation gadget to gently stir up my electrical currents.  Apparently they have had good reults with stroke patients.  It almost looks like an electric tooth brush.  And the lingerie store lady gave me a talking to about "I'm fine" and don't believe anything else, and don't look back - go for it, etc. and her sister in law who was given up for dead and had stem cell treatments and was in isolation for Two Years and is cancer free for 15 years now.  Very human-scale town.  A few of the trees are turning - it won't be long.  And I met with my long lost beau from 1969 whom I have not seen since - we were very brave and it was a congenial visit.  I saw what I used to see in him, yet we're all grown up.  What a circle that completed!  FAre well my Netops - M

Thank you (((((((Cali, Indi, Mary and Gina))))))) for all your love and support! I can't even begin to tell you how much it helps to know you all care. Yes, my heart still aches, but I am counting my many blessings and soaking up the light. Baby steps to healing.  Mary I'm so happy you're enjoying Vermont! How long will you stay? How beautiful it sounds, do you have to leave?

hi Stacy!

it's totally normal to dread those kind of appts, and have bad memories triggered by the season...but the sooner you go for the test the sooner you'll be relieved by the "all clear!" Consider your butt kicked?
