When I had my 1st recurrence, back in November of 2009, I read the survival statistics of my rare aggressive uterine cancer, and got my affairs in order. I felt I needed to have all the loose ends tied up so I could concentrate on LIVING for the time I had left. A part of those 'preparations' was to write out birthday and Christmas cards for my 2 grandkids, cards and a $ gift for every birthday until they each turned 18. (I know they always look forward to a special gift from Grammy Linda, and I wanted them to still keep getting those gifts after I was gone.) Back in the fall of 2009, I figured I could surely survive through 2010, but I thought I'd better start the "greetings from the grave" with Jakey's 9th birthday, March 28th, 2011.
What fun to crawl under the bed today, open up the big storage box I have of things I want the grandkids to get, and rip open that card! I'M STILL HERE! & instead of a card he's getting a nice mid-size flat screen from his Grammy for his room! And I'll get to hug and kiss him, too, and eat cake!
I look forward to more visits 'under the bed', to rip up even more 'posthumous' greeting cards. :D
