Hello all. I'm writing to say that it's been two years and three months since my wife Linda finished treatment for a recurrence of ovarian cancer. Her health has been good and she's walking and exercising and most importantly, working in the garden she loves.
We have one child still living with us who's finishing up community college and looking ahead, sort of. Our eldest graduated from University of Chicago and is busy with a career in Admission for them. Lives in a great apartment downtown Chicago.
I think back and remember that he was just going in as a freshman in college when Linda was first diagnosed.
No one knows what the outcome will be, or what life will hold...But we did the best we could through all that difficulty.
The recurrence was even tougher, if that seems possible. But he told her, "My mom is the strongest woman in the world."
And he's probably right. None of this was easy. And I'm out of work right now but God has watched over us and provided in so many ways. I hope he has a reasonable solution soon! But we're trusting the best we can.
That's life. A combination of faith and hope and doing the best you can.
Love to all.
