Good morning ........
I must have woken up in a time warp! Is it April? It was 41 degrees here at 8am and very sunny. Gizzy seems to be a bit under the weather, but he did go for a ride - and we saw one really big Newfoundland - the size of a small black bear! What does it take to feed one of those???
The support group meeting went pretty well yesterday. There were only four of us there plus the RN and the Sociologist - but all of us seemed to be in some kind of funk. The importance of maintaining a sense of purpose was one of our discussions. The depression of the long winter was another.
Considering there were only four of us, four types of cancer were represented, and two of the four were women and two men. It's amazing how many concerns were common to us all with that kind of variation of people. It helps going thru this ... and one does not have to be outgoing to do it and gain some benefit.
AV ...... way too kind of you. Although, I wish I could be a guardian angel to both of my daughters. You know what a Mothers love is all about. Sometimes, it's that way with a Father too! And writing on HW is at times a little selfish - because it makes me feel better!
Hope all goes well with your kidney infection and/or hospital visit.
MissJD ...... Pat is just one of many wives on that forum who have lost their true partner in life. It is a very strong group of women dealing with the most tragic losses for most - in their lifetimes. I actually started HW last June, and it was with the Prostate Cancer Forum first ... to research a med I was about to go on.
JB1 ...... good luck to you with a new med even if it is thru your old doctor. Hope your insurance frustrations calm down - and things start moving a little more smoothly for you.
Chart ...... wouldn't it be nice - if we could - use the edit button in real life!!!!
Michele ...... I remember the day I sold my old wedding ring - although it was a few years after the divorce. It was about 80% relief that everything is done ...... and about 20% why did it happen!!! Of course, everything wasn't done - but the "out-of-site .... out-of-mind" thing does work pretty well .... even with kids in the picture!
Karen ...... I'm trying like hell to make you envious! WE WERE 41 DEGREES HERE - this morning! And ...... I only tease people I really like! Have a good one today.
Peace and wellness
