2009--the best news

I have the best news to share with you! I saw my doctor today, and he told me that according to the MRI my tumor has shrunk. Cathy and I are so ecstatic. Thank you, thank you, and thank you for all your love and support. We would never have gotten here without your ending faith, hope, and prayers. I thank God too, because none of this is possible without his love and support. I still need to continue with the chemo. Anything is possible--thanks for this miracle.
Love,
Ellen

Hi Ellen, Sorry it took so long for me to respond to your good news. I'm delighted to say the least. I think that it is time for you to plan a camping trip with us. I'll even let you start the campfire, a task that I rarely relinguish to just anyone. Can't wait! love, david

Ellen, this is Pam from New Orleans. Mary Ann and I ran into Cathy at Mardi Gras and heard about your diagnosis. I am shocked and so sorry for what you are going through. I read your blog, and am so happy for you that you got good news in January. You know, I remember so clearly our conversations at book club and after, mainly about relationships, and I am so glad for you that you found such true love in your life, and that Cathy is with you. I hear you are moving back to Lafayette. I would love to get together with you if there is a time you might be in New Orleans, or if we could hook up with you in Lafayette. I send my love, thoughts, and prayers. Can I email you directly?
xoxoxo Pam

Ellen, Kathy - this is such great news! We missed you at Sausalito last September, but hope we'll see you again some day not too far away.

Lots of Love
