Prayer and postive energy both work in my book - thanks so much!  And I will do the same for your friend.

Mother In hospital again - urgggh!

I know it isn't going to get any better, but a bit of respite would be nice!!!!

So very sorry, Nick. 

Catching up in this thread has made me realize how lucky I've been to have had a long break from the hospital scene.  But judging from recent changes, that vacation may be coming to an end.

I believe in the power of collective hope and prayer so I'm hoping for a little help...

We found out last week that our 20 year old Godson (to the right of Joe) has a brain tumor.  He is truly one of the bright lights in our life and in the world; a peaceful and happy soul with compassion for every one and every thing.  Please send up a prayer for a good outcome; he will have surgery on Tuesday. 
Thank you all so much,
Lydia
I will also be sending prayers up from the other side of the world Lydia.

Not so well today... the tumor is cancer.  We just don't know how aggressive or if it is a grade 2 or 3, have to wait for the pathology report. 

So hard to see your baby that is now 6'1" and gorgeous both inside and out lying in a hospital bed and facing chemo and radiation... no words.

Thanks so much for all of your thoughts and prayers for Thomas.

Hi friend,

I am saddened beyond words, I can't begin to tell you. I was so hoping for the best.

 Thomas will remain in my prayers as well his family and yours. If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask. You know my number.

Love,

Terry

I hope you all don't mind my rambling.  If this isn't the place, please let me know...

Today I am pretending.  The game is called Pre September 19th.  Maybe it's a prequel.  I'm getting good at the game.  I simply push the bad thoughts away that creep into the unguarded moments.  Sometimes the truth flutters like a bird at the window in love with his reflection; wings beating softly trying to embrace the untouchable.  Then suddenly a larger bird crashes head-long into the glass, leaving a smear of blood as it falls to the bushes below.  And then the window is obscured by beating rain and hail, pummeling with bits of ice and wind that cause the window to pulse.  All at once the glass explodes and a Molotov cocktail has been hurled into the room and there are flames licking hungrily at every fiber.  I stand melting in the center.  Hoping the flames consume me before the pain gets too bad.  And only a minute has passed.  And I have so many more minutes today.
You complete me.
