Hey Everybody! Just want to let you know I'm still hanging around.  Gonna bug you as long as I can!  Yes, as is the common rumor, I am on oxygen and tired.  I've received the beautiful quilt and just love it!  Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers and work that went into it!  A very beautiful, personal, loving gift and it means so much to me.  I spend hours sitting and looking at it, enjoying it on my lap.  And yes, it was cold enough for a while.  You all mean so much to me, I can't thank you enough. 

Here's the update on me:  The transition to hospice went very smoothly.  I have a nurse and a bathing aide; I see them 4 times per week.  Both very nice women and good at their jobs.  They've brought me all kinds of equipment - a walker, wheelchair, portable oxy tank, a blah blah blah and MORE blah blah blah.  I think that's more blah than a girl needs, frankly.  I've lost way too much weight (according to my husband and Lisa My Scribe), way WAY too much.  Like Cheryl, my pants are falling off; and I'm wearing the clothes of a 13 year old girl. 

 

I do hope everything is going very well for all of you.  And I will take a few minutes to read and catch up.  In the future, from time to time, my good friend Lisa will be typing for me so no-one freaks out, wondering where I am.  Love you guys, couldn't get thru this without you.

Hugs,

Linda

Oh Linda, I wish you well with Hospice.  I am certain that they will take very good care of you.  I wish that I had some words of wisdom, but I don't.  So very glad you posted, we all wondered what had happen to you.  Suzanne had seen you, so we kind of knew.

Wishing you the best in this part of the journey,

Best,

Doris

Linda, I hardly know what to say. You have always had such an upbeat attitude about things. You "finished" treatment. Went back to work. Even got a promotion. Now all of this. My heart goes out to you and your family. Your scribe, Lisa, is doing a wonderful thing by helping us keep in touch with you. Please thank her for me.

My prayers are with you as well as my thoughts. Thanks for thinking of us, as we have been thinking about you. Like many, I feel like you were with me on my journey with words of encouragement and love. Your words and your humor make each day brighter when you need to lift yourself up. Linda, my heart will hold you near and close.

I am glad that you transitioned so well to hospice. Not a whole lot that can be said other than you will be on my prayers. Enjoy everything you possibly can. Amazing how much some of the smallest things mean now.
Prayers to you and your family, and always hugs,

I don't frequent this site as much as I used to.  But I was compelled to visit today.  I am glad I did.  Linda, my dear, you are so strong, witty, sweet, inspirational, kind, cute as a button, positive ... there are so many more acronyms to describe you more.  

My heart aches as I read about the newest road you are traveling.  I pray that you are being taken very care of and that God sends some of our pink angels to guide you.

Thank you for the update.  I wish I knew what else to say.  I just want you to know that I am here cheering for you along with our other pink sisters.

Linda, I was so very thrilled to see your post.  It breaks my heart to read all of what you are going through, but, I have to say this, you are the most courageous and inspiring woman I have ever had the privilege of knowing.  Your grace under fire helps us all with our battles against this expletive deleted disease.  I love you too! Gentle (((hugs))) and prayers.

Good to hear from you. You can bug us all you want. We want to know how you're doing and wan to keep up with you. I've lost some weight and once I do I can never get it back.I get comments and it hurts but I move on.Just get in some moods I'm not hungry and get busy and slow down on eating.

I know it's rough now but I will be thinking of you and wishing you the best.I like others believe in Miracles.I can't tell how many times I've prayed to get better, to live and just for life to be a little easier. My prayers are answered. So my prayers will be for you.

Again Thoughts,Prayers  and Miracles coming your way.

Linda,

your bravery and grace always blew me away. Not to mention your wise, wise words. I always

looked forward to reading your posts. They were inspiring and thought provoking. And painful

at times. I never forget the image of your precious daughter with your radiation mask. What an

amazing mother they have to look up to. You set the bar very high for us, getting a promotion 

and all, during chemo (:

But that is nothing, compared to fight you have in you. You have my utmost admiration and

love. Sending you huge comforting hugs Linda.

Linda,

I have to be honest I'm had a hard time reading your posting.  I hope hospice takes good care of you.  I was saddened to hear you were not doing well and want to tell you how much I enjoy your posts.  You are an inspiration to me and you have one great sense of humor.  I am sending you hugs and prayers.  I have not been on in a while and am glad to catch up on you and your journey.  I think of you often, you are one special lady.

Love, Terry

I haven't been on much myself, but the last few days, I've decided to check in.  Your incredible spirit shines on even with your recent difficulties.  I have a handful of Kindreds that I keep in my daily prayers, and you are one of them.  Your posts have helped me so much--when I've had personal difficulties and questions, and your kind, inciteful advice to others.  One of the things that always shined through for me about you was your sweet, gentle spirit.

 

I wish you the best as you continue on this journey.  I wish you peace, comfort, love and the knowledge that you have helped so many people on this board--including me.

Take good care and try to keep us posted.

Love and hugs, Renee
