Monday, August 25,2008

Wow, I guess the routiness of my days are starting to set in! I keep thinking I want to get a volunteer job, or something to keep me occupied while Cathy works and I putz around or sleep. My appointment today went fine. It's over before you know what's happened. As the day goes on I start to feel a little tired--I've been warned about that. The most uncomfortable thing is the incision spot in one area. I was told that nerve endings are cut through, and that is part of the reason for the stinging and pain. I have 27 more radiation treatments. Unbelievable? Have I mentioned that patience is not one of my virtures. From what I have written I'm assuming you may have guessed the above mentioned.

Life changes so quickly. Since I have been with Cathy I've tried to live one day at a time, but getting devastating news always seems to change my reaction to the moment. Any suggestions about volunteer work would be greatly appreciated.
Love to Everyone,

Everyday I use my moment of silence to send prayers your way. I am thankful for yor blog, so you are not innundated with questions and repetative answers. I am praying for all rain to stop figurative and literal. I would much rather suffer a 40 year drought than to have you in this mess. Isa and the boys send their love. I will send you pictures of thier first tussle later today. Shawn sends his love as well and is looking forward to new neighbors and cocktail hour when you beat this tumor into remission. I love you, Victoria

Hi Ellen,
I thought I might throw my tarnished 2 cents in regarding suggestions for volunteer work. The very first thing that came to mind was an animal shelter or animal rescue group. I've always found working with animals to be very therapeutic. They tend to be uncomplicated and so grateful for whatever bit of time/care you give. Just a thought....Healing thoughts coming your way. xo Peggy

Hi Ellen and Cathy,
Have been meaning to write a card; now I just found out about this blog thanks to Donna - how cool! You are in our thoughts everyday and we send lots of prayers and good intentions your way. All these positive vibes from all these folks will hopefully help your healing. Love Julia and Tom in Colorado
