  • Love and prayers, Loth.

    Love and prayers for all.
  • Some time ago I posted about a friend, Rae, who was in pallative care, and reaching the end of her journey. I just heard that she died this morning, peacefully.
  • So sad to hear that, NicoleMR. May she rest in peace, and may all who loved her be comforted.
  • May she rest in peace

    May Rae rest in peace, and may her memory be a blessing.
  • Rest in peace, Rae.

    Thoughts with you Nicole, and all who knew Rae.
  • My sympathies, NicoleMR. May Rae rest in peace.
  • My condolences, NicoleMR, and may God grant Rae eternal rest.
  • My prayers for living well.
    Dying well.
    And remembered well.
  • Oh no, I've just been diagnosed with a skin cancer on my nose which will require quite extensive surgery and a reconstruction. This is my 6th foray with cancer which seems to be working its nasty way up my body. I've survived all the surgeries, chemo and radiotherapy so far, so here's hoping. I'm starting to think that cancer 'likes' me.

    Everybody in my immediate family gets skin cancer; the question is not whether, but when.

    I got my first one decades before my parents. The breast cancer then came as a shock, because both sides tend to succumb to heart disease. But even after all these rounds of chemo, my heart seems to be in pretty good shape. Well, trust me to strike out in a different direction...
  • Oh Rhubarb - prayers for you and your snozz . I am very fond of my own nose and the mere thought of having it reconstructed ...
  • So sorry Rhubarb.

    Oh, @rhubarb, I’m so sorry 🕯.
  • So sorry rhubarb.
  • Ouch! Nasty one, @rhubarb ...this may be cold comfort, but an acquaintance of the former Mrs BF had similar problems.

    Surgery, and reconstruction, were entirely successful, and he is now much better-looking than before!

    Best wishes, and <prayers>, for the coming process(es).

    My brother is having an operation tomorrow to sort out the mess from the last one. I'm hoping it is just going to be a simple matter of untwisting his bowel (if such things are simple) and that no re-occurrence of the cancer is found. My sister in law talked to the consultant today. There are pluses and minuses to the operation, and the minuses are scary. However without an op I guess he'd be stuck in hospital unable to eat for the foreseeable future.
  • So sorry about your brother, Sarasa. I hope and pray that the new operation is successful and that no new cancer is found.
  • Amen. Just the thought of having one's bowel untwisted is painful!
    <votives galore>
  • Quietly, reading and praying.

    There is a new puppy chewing on my toes. Ouch- and my achilles.
    Our last pup (5 1/2) died in May from cancer after an acute illness.
    We remember/love him and can love our new addition.

    My cousin was talking to me the other day that he is worried that when he dies, his memory will be gone within 2 generations.

    I think that after we die, we live on in the memory of others. In the stories and the rituals.
    (In the epigenetics).

    As I read this thread, at stupid o'clock in the morning, I have reminders that our stories are a part of others' stories. And combined we make a grand narrative. A farce at times, but wow, what a story.

    My prayers for all of you, for the stories shared and unshared. For the tears, for the laughter.

    And now I have to go extricate teeth (still attached to their owner) from our coffee table whilst it has four even, albeit thinner, legs.

    Peace to you all, suffering, caring and remembering.

    I had an interesting experience yesterday at lunch where someone was remembering with joy and pride (that she was there) and in great detail something I had done over 25 years ago. Not someone especially close either. You just never know the effect you might be having...
  • My scan came back: Situation stable.
    No pain, no new pain, no new tumors or spread
    At some point biology will prevail over prayer and attitude ... but not yet
    Indebted to all ...

    Much luck to rhubard and hope and courage for all aboard this lifeboat . . .

    <votive> For all who suffer from any form of cancer

    Holding you all in my prayers, especially Rhubarb, Sarasa's brother, Galilit and for the soul of Rae.
  • MaryLouiseMaryLouise Purgatory Host
    Galilit! Gratitude.
  • With mum's funeral out of the way, I've emailed my family and closest friends giving them my prognosis. Had an immediate, affirmative, response from the friend who's been through cancer herself, and waiting to hear from the rest of them. Hope they're not too upset.
  • @Robert Armin may you have the support you need from family and friends
    Hooray for @Galilit's good news.

  • Great news Ross.

    Hooray!
  • jedijudyjedijudy Heaven Host
    Excellent news, Ross!!
  • More hooray! Praying for nothing but good news from all here at least through the rest of 2019.
  • Prayers for Robert and continued encouragement for Ross’ orneries
  • OhherOhher Shipmate
    Gratitude for all good news (also orneries) and holding out hope and courage for those awaiting news, and may it all be good.
  • Good news @Rossweisse . To add to the good news my sister in law has just phoned to say my brother's operation yesterday went really well, and things are looking good for his recovery. In more good news a colleague with a brain tumour has posted that her latest scan has shown no change.
    Prayers for all who post here. @Robert Armin I hope you can now concentrate on your own health after the stresses surrounding your mother's funeral.
