WHEN GOOD BOOBS GO BAD!

Remember as a youngster

You could hardly wait,

For buds to sprout upon your chest;

Each birthday, update? Update?

 

For both guys and gals,

The other quest was hair

Any color would do

Just somewhere, anywhere.

 

Eventually there came a sprout

When your chest burst forth

And a “woman” you were,

At least “up North.”

 

The trip was planned

The training bra search on.

Who knew they needed training,

Especially with lace or nylon?

 

You couldn’t take poor Dad along

Oh my gosh, the thought;

But even with Mom

The modesty battle was fought.

 

You finally came home

Two new bras in hand

And grabbed the phone,

To chat about Lingerie Land.

 

They came in all sizes

Training bras to double D’s,

‘tweens to Dolly Parton

‘twas all anatomy.

 

Your Mama and your Grandma

Passed mammary genes to you,

When they began to sprout

That was your debut.

 

Little did you suspect

How pleasurable they’d be?

Nor how cozy and convenient

After birthing progeny.

 

Then there came the moment

Your boobs, they did rebel.

Strange cells began to grow

And life spun into hell.

 

Shaken to the core

All began to change

Medical folks came at you,

All life seemed rearranged.

 

You’d ask, “Will I still be the same,

If my boobs are cut from me?

The bottom line is clear,

I’ll be alive and cancer free.”

 

Just look at it this way

New boobs will be so perky;

When all around you

Others dangle like beef jerky.

 

I love my breasts, but not enough

To grab a pole and strip,

Neither would I keep them

To go down with the Ship.

 

We women are so much more

Than our mammary glands.

Our hearts, our souls and dreams,

Now, those are life’s brass bands.

  1. Sue this is spot on. I can’t relate to the progeny part being a barren spinster and all but I know that the choice between my uterus and life was simple. It’s been 16 years and I don’t regret the loss one bit despite entering full menapause at 38. (Started issues at 34). I would not be here as uterine cancer was found incidentally on the pathology. I had the hyst due to fibroid tumors that were causing massive intestinal issues. My gram had no choice when she had mastectomies and taught me by example love your whole body not the exterior. I have routine squisograms as between family history and uterine ca I’m at a risk. (I giggled at the bra part I went from t-shirt to C cup in about 2 weeks lol)
    I so worry about your pain levels and other issues in face of any treatment. You are as you have been I’m my prayers.

  2. OH SUE AS LAURA SAID, SPOT ON. Of course we are all attached to that part of our bodies, but not enough to give our life for them. Hope things are going well with all your appts. Haven’t heard if you’ve seen the specialist or not. Maybe I should check the last post. I was so upset I could not respond, I was frozen. You my dear Sue are a braveheart. We will be hearing the news for my sister today.
    Love you big Sue. Always in my prayers. I know you will do whatever you have to , to fight this cancer. With you all the way my dear friend.
    XXX, & gentle hugs.

  3. I thought long on how to respond Sue. As Suzanne says she is I am frozen .i wish my mind would free itself up on this but it’s stuck as hers is
    When does all this begin for you?
    How are you in yourself?…. Stupid question but I needed to ask
    How is Jim and your family?
    Goodness Sue I’m lost,but feel close to you
    Love Chrisx

  4. Nail on the head, Ms. Sue. For sure. Must say I wouldn’t go down with the ship, either. It sounds like you are in good hands, for which I’m thankful. I hope you are resting from your trip and enjoying George’s antics. How is Jakie doing? Haven’t heard about him in a while.

    • Lyn dear, Indeed I feel very blessed how all of this has connected and so quickly, too. The Lord’s wonderful hand. I know there are those who would say, “If He’s so wonderful, why did He give you breast cancer?” As you and I know, He promised us grace for way…not perfection and guidance along the way. I have certainly had more than an abundance of that. As He cares about each birth and counts the hairs on our heads, he is in every finite detail of this and as strange as it sounds, I have a deep joy from that part of this.
      As for Jakie, he is getting a bit thinner, older at 13 and grouchy. George wants to play and that drives Jake nuts, poor old dear. We have to watch the squirt who will be one year old on Monday. Hope your family is fine and pray spring finally appears and allows those poor daffodils to spring up. Love you much my dear friend, Sue

      • Gees Lyn That’s what I get for not proof reading this..Of course I meant no perfection but plenty of guidance and love.
        Sue

      • Sue, we’ve all had our share of non-proof read/typo/brain foggy entries here. No worries. I hope you are resting up this weekend. I’m having some unplanned rest myself. Haven’t felt great – the usual + rainy, icky weather + allergies. Not much fun. I thought I’d get more done today, but at the end of church today I went to get up and leave and got light headed. It took a while to pass – I’m just fine, it’s nothing. I’m blaming it on that time of the month. But, figured it best I continue to take it easy to be safe. So… here I am watching NCIS with SB and DH. SB and I each have a cat on our laps. 🙂 I think dinner will be simple. I’ll heat up some meatballs, sauce, and French fries. There’s probably some carrots to munch on, too.
        Prayers for my niece and her family. She’s been into drugs for some time, spent 2 weeks in rehab (not enough, obviously) I can’t recall if she left early or it was that short a program. Anyway, last weekend she stole from my former sister-in-law and did copious amounts of heroin and crack. Long story short, she nearly died but agreed to enter rehab again. This time it’s a month long program. Who knows it this time will be the charm or not. She’s such a tiny girl, it’s amazing she didn’t die.
        Dear Jakie. Hugs to both pups from Auntie Lyn. I made the mistake of looking on the Humane Society web page for our locale. There is the cutest little white senior Maltese dearie – they think about 8 years old – available for adoption. I can’t stop thinking about her. I feel so bad when they are seniors because I feel like people are less likely to adopt them and in their senior years they really deserve a good home. I really shouldn’t look on that website…
        Love ~

  5. MY DEAR, DEAR FRIENDS….WELL, TODAY HAS BEEN ONE ROLLER COASTER RIDE. GOT A CALL THEY HAVE DECIDED, IT WOULD BE BEST TO GO AHEAD AND GET THAT PARASITIC GROWTH OUT OF ME INSTEAD OF GIVING ME ANOTHER PILL TO SWALLOW WITH ALL OF MY OTHER PROBLEMS. I’M MORE THAN A LITTLE STUNNED BUT IN A STRANGE WAY, RELIEVED. BE BACK LATER BUT WE ALL KNOW…GOD IS IN CHARGE, I JUST WISH HE’D SLOW DOWN A LITTLE WHILE I’M TRYING TO KEEP UP. LOVE EACH OF YOU..SUE

    • It sounds like your provider thinks a great deal about your whole body not just on the one part as it were. I’m glad that she’s looking at everything and trying to do what is best for you in her expert opinion. It is what I would want if I were in your position.

      • Well said Laura. That is what I would want also. Hope you are having a good day. It’s snowing here again. 😦 But that is not in our control so why worry about it. We found out today my sister has stage 1 cancer of the uterus but since she had lung cancer she will be seeing another doc next week and then they will decide who will operate and if she will need radiation. One more soul to add to our prayer list. Thank you all.
        Gentle hugs and kisses to all
        XXX

      • Laura, That’s how I feel. She is extremely bright and accomplished as well as being very sincere and personable. Fondly, Sue

    • Oh Sue..I an SO relieved that this Dr. has a new plan for you and you do not have to wait around to have this done. Sounds like a very thoughtful caring smart doctor. I vote to get this growth out asap. I know you will do well…God is in control.
      Hope you resting more peacefully tonight.
      Love and Hugs…..Jo

      • Jo dear, Yes it is good—if cancer can be good. I’ve been so very concerned about your grief for your dear Dad’s loss. It’s so hard. I was much closer to my Dad than my Mom and when he died, it was like all I could hold onto was gone. Over the years I have often felt him near me and a hundred times have remembered something wonderfully wise he taught me. Death is hurtful when the body leaves, but sweetheart, there is comfort in the memories which will grow more clear as time passes…truly. Much love, Sue

  6. Lovely thoughts all from you and up to the moment. Such a shock this is to you and to all of us. But we know it could have been very much worse, and that this is going to end well. WE love you and are here to cheer you up all that we can. My prayers for your strength and peace thru all this, and for your family. And poor little George who is going to be so confused when mummy goes away and comes back smelling funny !
    Love you dear
    Tonie

    • Tonie, First of all how right you are about all of this. Yes, George will be lonely, nosy and a great deal of company. Thank goodness he is so light to lift. Just read about the update on Rufus. I hate to hear that and know you’re attached. Well, can’t blame you. A rooster with such personality that he comes up on your porch and looks in. I’m sorry and do hope the injection helps.
      As I was telling Suzanne, I’m trying to stay busy because it helps and I have much to do with this short notice. I’m glad it’s that way. Have to get an EKG tomorrow morning here at the doc’s and they will send the results up to my cardiologist. He’ll check it and be there or near by on Tuesday. So much to be co-ordinated. My rheumy is, I believe, still out of town but her office asst. knows and will contact the rheumy filling for her if needed. Good thing I have such a big mouth in all of this. Think they’ll have to tape it up at times.
      I do hate to hear about your weather…hate those cold winds. I went out yesterday and came home quickly..same thing but not as cold as yours. Carol’s little cakes sound good. You’ve got a good friend there. Take care, bundle up and we’ll all think of Rufus and for what is best for him. Love you, Sue

  7. Very clever ditty there! Reminds me if the cardiac surgeon I worked with who did coronary bypass grafts using the mammary artery instead of the one from the leg. At the end of the procedure he would burst into song, in his finest Broadway baritone voice, “Thanks for the mammaries” 🎼🎶
    I’m glad your sense of humor is holding up and that your surgeon “gets” it. Sounds like you’re in great hands.
    Hugs-

    • Suzanne…sorry to hear about your sister, too.. I will add her to my prayer list.
      How are you holding up?
      Prayers and hugs to you, Suzanne.
      Love….Jo

      • Thank you Jo for the prayers, guess we all need as many as we can get. As Sue reminds us, God is in charge. Sometimes I get a little impatient with all the waiting. So happy Sue got that call. Now things will move along fast. I think that is a good thing. Next week I see my family doc on Monday, she will have lots of blood work to explain to me cause I certainly do not understand what they sent me and other tests but I didn’t get the results. I do know that I need to get an MRI done ASAP. I have been taking pics as she asked me to, to show the swelling in my knees, hands. I feel ready for this appt. My sister is going next week also and will find out if
        she will be operated in April or beginning of May. (Doc going on holidays) Her daughter is a nurse so she knows all the questions to ask and will be taking care of her. I’m so happy for my sister Carol.
        How are you coping Jo. I pray for you also as I remember when I lost my father my world seemed to end and was sick for a month after. Had some sort of blood disease.
        Hope your body is cooperating these days. Take good care dear Jo.
        Gentle hugs and lots of love being sent your way.

  8. Thinking of you all while away
    Sue. I like it that’s it’s gonna get done sooner.
    I remember when my mum was told ,she just wanted it away from her. She was good after
    That was 40 yrs ago . She was in Singapore and I was in Australia ,but after she came and visited us in Oz. She always loved that holiday and would talk about it for years after

    Suzanne ,,not good news for you to hear but thinking of you and your sister

    Ok gonna get going
    Chris

      • Suzanne:
        Adding your sister to the prayer list. So sorry for all your troubles as well. One thing about it, we all have a place to come and get help don’t we ? Prayers, advise and empathy ! Take care love. SNOW ?? Oh no ! Hang in there !
        Love
        Tonie

      • Yep we got another 10 cm of that white stuff and more to come.
        Got more bad news today from my sister. They had told her stage 1 cancer of the uterus but they called her back today to tell her it has gone beyond the uterus. She will be meeting with them on Thursday next week. She just sounded so down when she called. Of course I totally understand. She lives so far from me. Find that hard. Wish I could give her a hug just like all of you. Thank you Tonie for adding my sister Carol to the prayer list. It’s all so stressful. Darn cancer 😦
        Well off to bed and hopefully will sleep. love to all

  9. Sue, love your poem, and only you dear friend, could write a funny blog when faced with your diagnosis and the recommended treatment. I too was shocked, and I don’t understand why radiation is contraindicated with autoimmune disorders … our autoimmune diseases are always causing problems it seems! Gentle hugs coming your way and of course, my love and prayers will be with you as you slay this demon! Much love … Brenda

  10. I AM OVERWHELMEDBY WHAT HAS BEEN WRITTEN BY EVERYONE, SEEMS MOST OF US HAVE BEEN TOUCHED WITH CANCER OR HAS SOMEONE CLOSE WHO HAS BEEN…….I WAS ONLY 29 WHEN IT HAPPENED TO ME, THE CERVIX WAS IN TROUBLE, BUT IT WAS CAUGHT IN TIME….I WAS LUCKY, MY MOM ALSO HAD THE SAME THING WHEN SHE WAS 70, AND THE ONLY REASON SHE FOUND IT, WAS IN HOLLAND WHERE SHE LIVES, (AND TONIE WILL KNOW ABOUT THIS) THEY HAVE FLAT TOILET BOWLS, WHICH SOUNDS REVOLTING AS YOU GET TO SEE CLEARLY ALL THAT GOES ON IN IT, BUT THAT SAVED MY MOTHERS LIFE WHEN SHE SAW THE BLOOD.
    SUE SWEET LADY….I DON’T NEED TO TELL YOU HOW I FEEL FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, I ECHO EVERYONE ELSE’S SENTIMENTS……..I WILL BE RELIEVED WHEN ITS DONE AND YOU ARE HOME AGAIN AMONGST YOUR LOVELY FAMILY, AND YOU CAN PICK UP THE REINS AGAIN, MEANWHILE THE PRAYERS HEADING YOUR WAY, FROM HOLLAND, FRANCE SPAIN AND THE UK, WILL BE WITH YOU AS YOU NEED THEM…..ALL LOVE MY FRIEND….JENNIE XX

    • Jennie I had the same thing when I was about 29 also, but had radiation treatments and all has been well since.
      Praying for all on this blog. Gentle hugs. XXX

      • HI SUZANNE, SO YOU HAD RADIATION, I DIDN’T, THEY DID A CONE BIOPSY, AND WAS HOME IN A COUPLE OF DAYS, BUT THEN LATER GOT ENDOMETRIOSIS, BLEEDING OUT ALL OVER THE PLACE, SO HAD A LASER ABLATION…….IT ALL GREW BACK OVER THE YEARS AND A HYSTERECTOMY WAS THE ONLY WAY TO GO AFTER THAT…….ITS OK NOW THOUGH, I WAS PAINTING THE CONSERVATORY WITHIN 5 DAYS OF THE OP. BON WEEKEND MY FRIEND….LOVE YOU…JENNIE POO XX

  11. Hello my friends !
    I woke up feeling very blah and achy, and was not gonna go work out. BUT… talked myself into it and was glad I did. By the time I got there was feeling much better. After the workout, hottub and shower, felt and feel very good. DId my rounds in errands, Got me 6 new baby chicks, little redheads again. I will have ot find new names for them for I am out of redheaded friends 🙂 . They are peeping away as we speak. I have the keep them in with me til they get big enough to go in the pen. I am afraid the hens will hurt them. My Henny Penny, the older hen has started eating eggs. I understand they will do that if they are jealous of the other hens laying when they can’t. If she doesn’t stop it , I will have to find something to do with her (not eat her Jennie ) I caught her doing it the other day. I try to get there to get them right away, but she beat me to it this am. Lot’s of wind still. I got me a lavender plant as well. I have decided the little back yard is going to become a garden. Lavender, herbs, and flowers of all kinds will be planted out there, just let the grass grow and put out some walking stones for a path and have a place for a couple of chairs. Sounds relaxing ! Gotta get my buddy over here to take out my hottub motor and see what can be done with it.
    Sue I hope you are rested up and feeling better today. Take care all and have a good evening. I am gonna rest a while, then going over to my old high school and take some pictures of a little girl from church in a beauty pagent.
    Love to all
    Tonie

    • TONIE….THOUGHT OF NAMES FOR YOUR BABIES……NAME THEM AFTER THE SEVEN DWARFS, WELL I KNOW BUT ITS ALL I COULD COME UP WITH…..LOL X THE GARDEN SOUNDS A BLAST, AND WILL KEEP YOU OUT OF MISCHIEF FOR SOME TIME…LOTS OF LAVENDER LOVE, AS MUCH AS YOU CAN CRAM IN TO ENCOURAGE THE BEES, AND ALSO BRING A SENSE OF PEACE TO YOUR GARDEN, I KNOW MINE DOES. WHAT MADE YOU THINK I WOULD WANT YOU TO EAT YOUR POOR OLD HENNY PENNY, GIVE HER SOME HRT, SHE IS GOING THROUGH THE BLOOMING MENOPAUSE…..HE HE!!! NO SERIOUSLY, I HAVE HEARD THIS BEFORE, MY FRIEND LIZ HAD THE SAME PROBLEM SHE KEPT HERS SEPERATED FOR AWHILE, AND SHE GOT OVER IT……..HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND MY FRIEND….LOVE YOU….JENNIE PO XX

      • Oh Tonie that sounds fabulous! I’m with Jennie, lots and lots of lavender, it will give off a wonderful scent of peace. I will need to buy more this year as the ones I brought into me house did not survive and I’m not sure why. Hope the ones outside survived this nasty winter but won’t know for quite a while yet. Sometime in April I will get my seeds going but don’t want to have to transplant them twice. Just starter pots and then straight into the garden.
        Hope Henny Penny gets better soon, I would give her plenty of grit or broken up shells to peck at.
        Have you found names for the redheads yet? I would think you need a few days to see their character and then the name will come.
        Hope you are having a good day Tonie. Gentle hugs from way up North.
        love you sweetpea!
        XXX

  12. Tonie your garden sounds it’s gonna be good
    DH says try putting shell grit ,crushed up sea shells,in a dish in pen …poor ol henna penny.try and see if she pecks at that see if it helps .or keep old dried out hens eggs and give that crushed up
    .he used to keep poultry in Oz and show them as a young boy..odd innit?
    Oh well tired now busy day
    Chris

  13. Chris:
    Thanks to DH !! I do save the shells and give them back 🙂 Henny always runs to get them and I give them grit. I will give more grit and see what happens. OH well, the little ones are asleep in the other room covered with a towel. I put them up on the stove while I was gone just in case the boys got too curious. I took one and let them smell so they would know what they were. Don’t wanna loose these babies.
    Have a good evening all, I am over and out !

    Tonie

  17. Happy Saturday to all on the blog. Sue hope you are resting up before your operation, or planting some kind of flowers as I know you like to do things. Whatever makes you happy then just do it. We all love you to the moon and back sweetheart. Prayers and power angels on their way.

  18. Well, the day that was SUPPOSED to be in the 60’s has turned into a blustery wintery day, with winds of 60 mph gusts and cold cold yuk ! high in the low 40’s. Poor Rufus is so sick. I gave him a shot of penicillin this am, I hope it helps him. I am supposing he is old as well. His comb is purple and not getting enough blood flow. He is hunkered down in the straw. I know you may think I am silly, but he is such a good rooster, and it saddens me so for him to maybe die !
    Ah well, ! No church today because of the high winds, pastor didn’t want us coming out. 🙂 We have a lot of older people and she was afraid for them. My friend Carol brought me some cupcakes this am (she made some for a lady at church) and some seeds we are gonna try that came from her grandmother. Heirloom seeds, I hope they grow. Don’t know how old they are, so can only try.
    Well all have a wonderful day. I have apples cooking on the stove and biscuits in the oven. Love that combo !
    Love to all
    Tonie

    • Well Tonie we are in the middle of another winter storm here too. I thought the saying was ” If it came in like a lion it would go out like a lamb” – well so much for that. That’s now out the window.
      I can almost smell those apples cooking!! 🙂
      George and I will probably go to the advanced polling today cause that will be easier for me. Sore all over this body today so it will take me some time to get dressed. Can’t wait to hear what the doc will tell me tomorrow.
      I hope Rufus comes back to you strong.
      Stay safe sweetpea!

      • Suzanne, prayers continuing for you and your sister. Hang in there with that weather! Like Tonie, we were supposed to be around 60 today, but it’s rainy and I’ll bet 40’s. My body feels it, as does yours. Boo hiss.

      • Thanks Lyn, always need prayers. The more the better as far as I’m concerned. We are both hanging in there. I hopefully will get new tomorrow and my sister on Thursday. Never thought my body would react to weather as much as it did this winter, but hasn’t it been a nasty one. Boo hiss indeed. I pray for you also Lyn as I know it is not easy for you either. Let’s hope the weather clears for everyone and that would be one less battle to fight.
        Love you bit Lyn sweeheart. Do take good care of each other.
        XXX

      • Suzanne, …you will be in my prayers tomorrow as you go back to the Dr. I pray you get some answers to all this pain you have been in. I know how frustrating it is when you know there is something wrong with you, and you go from dr. to dr. as a lot of us on here have endured. It took me years and a lot of tears before I got any sort of diagnosis. Be your own advocate tomorrow and do not be afraid to speak up and questions these doctors. . I will pray for strength for you and a productive visit with the dr. I will also keep praying for your sister. There is just so much going on with everyone I know it seems. Hugs, Prayer and Love to you, Suzanne ! And thanks for your concern for me these past few weeks. I know it will take sometime for me to grieve my Dad’s death. It is still so raw and almost seems surreal. I appreciate your concern and prayers. ….Jo xoxoxoxoxoxox

      • Suzanne:
        Take a stand for you, Ya gotta get answers and without a stand you won’t. get much. Like most everyone else, it took me a few years to get answers, finally going and crying cause my hands were so swollen I couldn’t move my fingers. Then I got sent to the Rheumy. I was blessed and got a prince the first time out. I passed him on to Jo 🙂 ! THen had to kiss the frog out here. SO be of good cheer and Git er DUN !!
        Love
        Tonie

    • Tonie, sorry about your Rufus. 😦 I hope the shot helps. Yum! Cupcakes, apples and biscuits! Time for this gal to stop typing. My phalanges are getting sore. Have a blessed Sunday!

  19. Suzanne, I kept meaning to get back to you in regards to your sister. My concerns are with her and you. How is she coping? Is there a good way? I think each of us have these things happen to us and each reaction is an individual one. Prayers for her, certainly.
    I hate to hear all of you having to endure this terrible winter. It drags down the spirit and the physical stuff of dealing with it is so hard on most of our bodies.
    As far as those test results for which you had to give up some of the helpful meds…it had better be informative! Right? Stand up for yourself sweetheart…you’re more than worth it and we only have this one life until the eterna; and it’s got to be better than many of us have fought through, and we all know about fighting for good or better health.
    As for me, I am keeping as busy as I can, body considered. Today I will strip the bed so I can come home in a few days to clean sheets. I’m going to set the Scooba to work cleaning the floors and try to stay ahead of the dogs. George threw up yesterday so the Spot bot I got from my daughter at Xmas will come in handy, etc. That means you clean up that one spot and get to find out how really dirty the rest of the carpet around it is…but as she said, my Beth, it gets soiled quickly enough you don’t have to see the clean spot for long. So true. Well, need to chat a bit more with others and get off my fanny. Love you dear girl, thinking of you tomorrow. Sue

    • OH SUE, now you have me crying. I know I have to stand up and fight cause that is the only way I will get answers. I did sit down tonight and wrote out what I need to know from the doc. I know there is more than 5 questions but heck it been 2 1/2 years and still no answers and I’m going down hill fast here. Can barely do anything at all cause of the pain I’m in since they took away the meds I was on. Not good. You are right I need to stand up for myself!! and I will tomorrow. THANK YOU SUE for the encouraging words.
      What a nice thought , coming home to clean sheets, it will make you feel so happy when you get home.
      Well when we have dogs, dirt comes with them I think and yes the spot will not be there for long. LOL.
      Hope you received the e-card I sent you. It was really from my heart.
      I will let you know how things went tomorrow but I’m thinking you will have enough on your plate tomorrow you will have to be thinking of yourself.
      Love you big Sue. God Bless you and Godspeed!

      • Suzanne, I’m going to pray for a special answer to at least one of your many problems. Sweetheart, it took me three years to get close to an answer. I had to drive down to Beverly Hills, CA from central CA and when he kindly listened to me, gave me some partial answers and medications..I cried and cried. You speak up and tell her how you feel..as honestly as you can. God loves you sweetheart. DO NOT GIVE UP> there is an answer out there and you need to connect to it. Much love, Sue

  20. Well this will be a short one I just lost a post
    Good to be back,own bed etc and stuff to hand

    Suzanne ..yea you stick up for yourself tomorrow …so sorry to hear of your sister news,how is she now?

    • Chris, so glad you’re home and in your cozy spot.. What a wonderful trip and I suspect, worth every ache and pain. Hope you have the chance to rest up now. Your pics of the trips were amazing and made it all so real for all of us who saw them. I certainly and have talked to the doc about my dry mouth. Tomorrow, when I talk to the admitting nurse I’m going to ask if I can bring my own seltzer…I will pack some mouth spray for dryness and already bought some moisture lozenges. I also picked up some long lasting eye gel for the anesthesiologist to put in my eyes. Hopefully it will only be two days and then I can get home to my four poster bed and nest with Jakie, George and my DH. It’s a blessing he is off work right now due to that broken shoulder..and the shoulder is doing well with PT. He’ll never regain full motion due to the head of the humerus but it is healing well. Hope all is well with your Dad and DH. Bet he enjoyed all the camaraderie with his photography friends.Love you gal, Sue

      • God is the ultimate planner Ms Sue. It amazes me when I look at how He arranges things so smoothly. Prayers that the hospital stay is short and healing quick. George is gonna miss his momma I know.

    • Chris, I’ll let you know how things went tomorrow once I get home. I only go for 1 in the afternoon. Think that will be nighttime for you sweetpea. My sister goes on Thursday. So much happening this week. Prayers for everyone here or where ever. Hope all is well with you Chris. Maybe this week I’ll get some pics off to you. Probably something I can do.
      love you sweetheart. Do take good care.
      Gentle hugs and XXX

  21. Tonie, your home must smell heavenly with those apples cooking and biscuits in the oven.
    I hope poor Rufus perks up for you!
    Suzanne, my thought have been with you and your sister too, and hope you get some answers tomorrow. I found the first few years with my rheumy difficult as sometimes the answers to our questions aren’t apparent at first. Hope that she gives you better pain control.
    Lyn, lets hope spring is on the way as I know you have found this winter difficult too. We have had snow the last two mornings and there are still snow banks on both sides of the drive way! I can’t wait for sunshine and warm sunny days!
    Chris, so glad you are back home. Thank you for sharing the pictures!
    Sue, sending love and strength … I know everything will go well with so many people behind you!
    I must go as we are having company for dinner but it will be take out. I have only been out of bed for about an hour today as my feet and ankles are too painful to walk, but I will get hubby to straighten the bed before they come and I will try to move to the sofa. Both knees and a shoulder are very painful too. .. and the knees aren’t real, lol!!! Guess it is time to call my new doctor but I keep hoping this will pass.
    Love and Hugs to all…. Brenda

    • Oh Brenda, please call that new doc. I agree completely with Lyn. Sweet friend, don’t put yourself through anymore if something can be sought and done. We all love you so much and know what agony you live with and pray you will get some relief very soon.
      I think I’ll be fine. We’ll chat after my surgery and I hope to hear you’re on to the new doc. Hugs a plenty. Love, Sue

    • Thanks Brenda. I think if I had control over the pain it would be easier than the last 2 or maybe 1 month. This is extreme, and I’ve been crying in pain for too long. My husband doesn’t know how to help me and I tell he can’t help it is just too much for me to handle. As I told Sue, I am ready to stand up and fight this time for answers. It’s about time I do that for me. I’ve always been able to do it for everyone else but for myself. I’m feeling your love and that will also help me tomorrow.
      God Bless and gentle hugs sweetheart.

      • SUZANNE….THATS FIGHTING TALK….LOVE IT, BRENDA IS RIGHT YOU STICK UP FOR YOURSELF, I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS WHEN YOUR DH FEELS OUT OF HIS DEPTH, THEY TRY TO UNDERSTAND AND THAT ALONE MAKES ME CRY, AT LEAST HE CAN GIVE YOU A CUDDLE WHEN YOU NEED IT….WISH THAT WE ALL COULD. COURAGE DEAR FRIEND….LOVE YOU….JENNIE POO XX

    • Brenda:
      Call the Doc gal !! It is better if they treat whatever is ailing you sooner than later. Could be an infection and that would not be good to let it go. You KNOW to do this !! Love you much and want to see you strong and healthy (as you can be) .You been thru a lot and seen too many Doc’s (like we all do) but you have to keep on.
      Love you
      Tonie

  22. Tonie, I think you should call those redheaded chicks after old red headed movie starts. Lucy, Rhonda, Maureen, etc. Hope Rufus is better tonight. My house is getting there. Now the hot water heater went out and Jim’s working on it..wonder if the dogs and I should leave the house? Take care dear girl..Always thinking about you. Love, Sue

    • My sweet Sue:
      You are so in my prayers and thoughts right now. Every few minutes I think of you and whisper a prayer. I know you will be nervous, that is only natural. But you will get through it with flying colors ! Strength and uplifting I pray for and a quick healing to all the invasion of your poor body. Can you save the old boob and use it as a prop ??? 🙂 I know sick and twisted but I know you appreciate sick and twisted !! Love you so much
      Tonie
      PS Holler if you need me !!

      • TONIE AND SUE, COULDN’T HAVE PUT IT BETTER MYSELF, I THINK WE ARE ALL OF THE SAME MIND, AND WANT GOOD HEALING FOR YOU SUE,……I DON’T THINK I WILL SLEEP TONIGHT, I TOO LIKE TONIE KEEP THINKING OF WHAT YOU HAVE TO ENDURE, BUT KNOW YOU WILL BE ALRIGHT AND YOU WILL GET THROUGH TUESDAY, YOU ARE A TROOPER IF EVER THERE WAS ONE……………….JUST GIVE YOURSELF TO THE GOOD LORD DARLING AND ALL WILL BE WELL……………..I LOVE YOU…..JEN X

  23. Well, my life is an official country song, all I have to do is write the music !! My Rufus died this am. I got a ticket the other night for having a headlight out (officer said when I went to court if fixed they would drop it (so why use me for your quota !!) , They guy gave away Mars to someone else, and having issues again with my daughter ! Rooster died, horse is gone, got a fine, and a daughter out a whack ! Oh yeah, and the groundhog is back 🙂 WAHH OH WAHHH !! Now ain’t that a FINE little song ??
    Laughter is the best medicine and much better than tears (besides, I already cried enough of them)
    My love to you all, I pray you all had a good day
    Tonie
    PS Sue Millie sends her prayers and love to you.

    • Oh Tonie, my heart goes out to you. That is way too much for one gal to handle. Do you have someone close to you that can help comfort you? Wish we would only live closer and I could cuddle you and give you gentle hugs.
      I’m so sorry for Rufus and also for Mars don’t understand why he gave him away to someone else instead of giving him to you, but your daughter is something altogether different. I don’t know the story but I do understand trouble and daughters. Remember GOD IS IN CHARGE.
      When I get home tomorrow I will FB you private message. Maybe we could have a chat on the phone. That would be one way I could comfort you sweetpea.
      Try and sleep tight you certainly need too.
      love you big
      XXX

      • Suzanne:
        I am fine. I cried a lot over the last few days, but it heals a lot of things in me when I let it go. Also prayed a lot for peace. It comes. I talked to my sister, and to my dear sweet Millie who helped me see the good in things. You cannot control much in this life, so you do have to learn to just let go of it all and give it over to the One who has control.
        Love you and thanks so much
        Tonie

    • OH TONIE LOVE…IT NEVER RAINS BUT IT POURS…..I AM SO SORRY FOR THE EXTRA TROUBLE THAT HAS COME YOUR WAY….LIFE IS A BITCH AT TIMES, BUT AS LONG AS YOU ARE ALRIGHT THATS ALL THAT MATTERS, AND YES YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE LAUGHTER BIT. MY DH HAS A PARTY PIECE, I MADE AN EGG CUSTARD FOR DESSERT YESTERDAY, AND I ASKED HIM TO BRING IT TO THE TABLE, HE DOES THAT THING WHERE HE PUTS HIS TOE BEHIND HIS OTHER LEG AND MAKES OUT HE HAS TRIPPED….ONLY THIS TIME IT DIDN’T WORK….EXIT ONE EGG CUSTARD…..ENTER ONE LUCKY DOG….GRRRRR!!!!! OH WELL THATS LIFE…..BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT HA HA!!! LOVE YOU SPECIAL LADY…..JENNIE POO XX

    • Tonie, I just saw your post. I am so very sorry for all this trouble brought upon you yesterday. SO sorry about all of it. I hope you were able to sleep last night. I pray you have a better day today all the way around. I hope Spring shows up with some 60’s and 70’s for you soon so you can plant all that lovely lavender all around and maybe some vegetables or herbs. I .planted 2 more lavender plants plus today I will plant some blueberries. Never tried that before but the you-tube video I saw makes it look easy to grow. We will see…. Just think how it will be so relaxing to sit outside with a cup of coffee and have that wonderful lavender scent all around.
      Hope you are doing better today. Saying prayers for you, too.
      Love ya, Jo xoxo

  24. Lyn dear, put you off until last because I had more to say. Hope SB is doing well. And you haven’t mentioned DD in awhile so I hope she is still enjoying her job. I know all of you are so sick of this weather and I know it’s terribly hard on you. Hope the allergies are better but maybe also a harbinger of spring for you…….at last.
    I’ve talked to three friends from CA and they’re talking about the earthquakes. 100 after shocks. Gees, I hate earthquakes. Didn’t know they had them here or would have given a great deal more thought to moving to OR. We’re still having rain off and on…often by the bucket full and winds were cranking up last night…poor Tonie with 60mph winds in VA. I feel for her but here on the OR coast that’s just a breeze. This old house can really shake, rattle and roll.
    I hope you follow your heart and at least go visit and take a look at that little homeless girl pup. Old? Who cares, right? What if we thought of humans that way that they were useless when old, right? Wait…I forgot, many folks do feel that way.
    I’m making out lists so I won’t forget anything to take to the hospital. You’d think I was going for a month instead of a couple of days. Well, I’ll be coming home lighter, that’s for certain. A girl always like to get trimmed but this is ridiculous. Pray for me dear friend. I’m nervous but not frightened. Does that make sense? I have and do face so much all the time. Thanks for being such a true friend dear girl and I hope those allergies are better. Love you, Sue

    • Sue, I would be surprised and worried if you weren’t at least a little nervous. It makes perfect sense to me to be nervous but not frightened. 🙂 The pups will be so happy to see you when you return, but be prepared, as I’m sure you will be, they won’t know to avoid that part of your anatomy. For some reason it flashed in my memory when DD returned from her reduction surgery our dear Miles knew she wasn’t up to snuff and always comforted those who were sick or in a funk by cuddling up with them. In her case, he loved laying on her chest… He knew something was up, but took a while to realize he couldn’t make it better in his usual fashion. Poor, dear, loving Siamese. We’ll be keeping an eye out for a message that all went well and you are on your road recovering. 🙂 Much love!

      Oh, the senior pup. I showed it to DH and didn’t get much reaction. Showed her to SB who wasn’t taken by her cuteness and said “But she’ll die soon.” Um, she’s 8. Hardly one foot in the grave. DD got it. Of course. She agreed that seniors deserve a chance. Not sure if she was taken with her or not. I think she would be if she saw her. I am very tempted to at least take a look at her, but it is VERY dangerous for me to venture into such a place…

      Tonie, dear, I am SO sorry about Rufus. I know he was special. And I know you did all you could for him. I’m betting her knew it, too. 😉 Hugs! Oh, and Mars… I had a feeling that was almost a done deal. What happened?? So sorry. I so get issues with children and family, as many of us do here. Oh what it does to a mamma’s heart. Sending you prayers, hugs, and more.

  25. Dear Sue….I have been thinking of you and just wanted you to know that you are in my prayers everyday. I know you must be busy preparing for the upcoming surgery…just a couple of days away. So many details to think about and get done. I just know you will be fine. You have SO many people praying and rooting for you, and I do believe in the powers of prayer. I know you must be feeling a little nervous about Tuesday, but your are in good Hands, GOD’s hands.
    Thank you, also, for your concern for me. I, too, was closest to my Dad than my mom. He was the light of the family. It will take me time to go through the grieving process. In that light, I signed up to go to something called “Grief Share”, a kind of support group at one of the churches here in neighborhood. I don’t know what to expect, but I will give it a couple of sessions, once a week for 2 hours. It may help me sort out some issues I seem to be stuck at.
    Try to not be too nervous, Sue, clear your mind and think good thoughts. My prayers will be with you….
    Love you, Jo xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

    You take all the rest
    Chris

  28. Update: the dear little senior pup was adopted! (Not by us) I went online today and it listed her as adopted. Whew. Now I feel better.

  29. My English gals ! I was down at my sisters and she was looking through old dishes and such. We found the cutest little teapot of hammered aluminium from NC Joseph Startford on Avon. Been looking at some of them online. I just wonder how it ended up at our house. We don’t remember if it was grandmothers or whose. And by the way, what is the difference in saying you are English and saying you are British. I called a guy British and he corrected me and said no, he was ENGLISH !
    Later
    Tonie

    • TONIE….AS CHRIS SAYS IT, SO IT IS, COULDN’T HAVE PUT IT BETTER MYSELF, THE WELSH HAVE THEIR OWN LANGUAGE AS WELL AS ENGLISH, AND THE IRISH AND SCOTS ALSO SPEAL GAELIC. YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT THAT LITTLE TEAPOT, IT MIGHT BE WORTH SOMETHING….ALL MONEY IN THE POT……..I THINK OF MYSELF AS BRITISH BECAUSE I HAVE WELSH BLOOD IN MY VEINS….NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS…..LITTLE HARRY HAS BUT ONE WEEK TO LIVE, THERE IS NO MORE THEY CAN DO FOR HIM, HE HAS ALREADY EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS AND SURVIVED FOR NEARLY TWO EXTRA YEARS, BUT HE IS FADING FAST NOW, SO I AM ASKING FOR PRAYERS FOR A PEACEFUL PASSING FOR 6YR OLD HARRY, AND GOD BE WITH THE PARENTS, LITTLE BROTHER AND GRANDPARENTS, WHO ARE KEEPING VIGIL AS WE SPEAK………………….THANK YOU……LOVE JENNIE POO XX

      • Oh yes I wil certainly be praying For Harry and his family. Bless their hearts ! They have been through so much, but I am so glad he got to do a lot of things near this time. Poor little tyke.

        That teapot is numbered. The ones I saw online are not. Is that company still in business ?? I will have to check it out and find out what the meaning of the numbers are. Usually there only only so many made like that.

  30. Tonie
    British is English welsh Scottish and n.irish
    English is on its own,so you can be both. English and therefore British .welsh and also British. British is of all the nations
    Clear or like mud!
    Have I explained it ok? Mind you I don’t see why he bothered to point out he was English he could have just agreed

    Perhaps the teapot was bought over by a family and then sold ages ago..interesting tho

    Lyn
    That’s good news about the geriatric dog!

    Sue
    Xxxxxx
    Chris

    • Yes, Chris, I get it now. It did make me wonder why he corrected me. Perhaps he is one who is not a lover of the other nations involved. Oh well.
      I like the little teapot, I do remember mother had it for many years. We were never drinker of hot tea (not in a teapot) but normally iced sweet tea. And let me tell you how to make Southern tea. You brew enough tea for a gallon, steep it heavily. Remove from the stove and dump sugar in it until it dissolves no longer (for you chemistry people it is oversaturated) and then add water and ice until you fill the gallon container. It will make your teeth on edge, but boy is it good on a hot muggy day !
      My sister has a lot of things that were in the house for ages, I love to look for markings etc, cause I love old things. I would rather have old dishes than new anyday !
      Take care
      Tonie

  31. Good afternoon, just came back from the doctors and found out my immune system is not working, but I knew that already. Duh!! The rest of the blood tests are not in cause they take a longer time because the are specific tests for different kinds of arthritis. I have to go for xrays tomorrow and now I’m waiting on someone to call for an MRI.
    Very discouraged now cause I still have no answers. I will be able to take celebrex once I’m done with prednisone (April 7) Told the doc the pain is just unbearable but there was nothing she could do right now to help. All the tests have to come in before they can do anything. I have reminded my self GOD IS IN CHARGE. But I just don’t understand all this pain.

    Now Sue, you are the one we will all be praying for TOMORROW. Well today also but tomorrow is the day and we all know it will go well. I sure you are nervous that is just normal. Kisses and gentle hugs to your my friend. I’ll also be sending you a choir of POWER ANGELS. Did you know there are different kinds of angels? Well they are different and POWER is what you need for tomorrow.

    Thank you to all on this blog who sent me a message but I just can’t answer everyone right now. Just so tired and in too much pain. I really appreciate all the kind words and prayers and thoughts. Will keep you posted on my sister , she goes on Thursday to find out more.

    Not sure what I would do if I didn’t have you all.

    Love to all, gentle hugs and XXX

  32. Suzanne
    How annoying and I bet you couldn’t tell him all how you feel as some of the results are still to come.how long do you still have to wait, is it before the 7th ? Blimmin hec it’s all wait!. as the tests are done why can’t you start on meds again? I’m just so annoyed for you !
    Tonie
    If someone corrected me like that I would wonder whats the matter with them!
    There is a teashop I know that has all old china..and nothing matches it’s all odd and just looks great. some say ,fancy that and it’s peculiar to have that, but I think its great ,I love it .but I love stuff that has a story to it as well
    The tea does sound sweet I think it would have to be tried?
    Ok gonna try and sleep,thinking of sue
    Chorus

  33. Not sleeping and thinking of Sue. Sending prayers my friend. Just know all will go well tomorrow. As Lyn said we will be keeping a close eye on the blog to get news.
    Love you big! Stay Strong! Godspeed.
    XXX

  34. Sue I am awake and thinking of you, I will add on my normal prayers for your comfort and peace as well as prayers for the people that will be caring for you over the next several days and onward to those I say for you and your family every day. I don’t expect a response of course but do hope that SIL or DD or someone will let us who love you so know how things go and will let you know we are thinking and praying for you.

    I want everyone that reads this blog to know I do pray for all of us pain “warriors” or pain family and all of your families and care providers/doctors/Nurse Practitioners on a daily basis for comfort, peace and the ability to continue living our lives in a satisfying way. Love to all, Laura

    • THANK YOU LAURA! I know how difficult it is for you too. You are right we are pain warriors or a pain family.
      God bless you and keep you strong.
      love ya big!
      XXX

  35. Sue, I can’t sleep tonight so I am awake and thinking of you, and praying for you, but with all these prayers, and your courage and strength, I know everything will turn out well.
    I finally called my knew doctor today and he was away from my office but they said they would be giving me a call, but it will take awhile. Later this afternoon they called back and said I has an appointment at four tomorrow, so either they told the doctor or they pulled my huge file, but something prompted the call. I feel that I am inflamed around all the hardware in my feet, but we will see what he says.
    My thoughts and prayers will be with you tomorrow, Much love …. Brenda

    • So happy to hear you called that new doc. Hope all went well Brenda. Let us know, cause we worry about you too.
      As Laura said we are a pain family.
      love you big!
      XXX

  36. Dear SUe: Prayers for you today. And all of you EVERYDAY !
    Her surgery is at 1:30 Pacific time, so say a prayer for her whatever your time zone. Dear Lord, please steady the hand of the surgeon, remove all the bad stuff from her body, and give her strength, peace, and energy to heal properly. Let her recover swiftly and without depression. Lord Jesus help our Sue in your name we pray, Amen

    • I GO ALONG WITH ALL THAT TONIE HAS JUST SAID, WAS OUT SHOPPING AND KEPT CHECKING MY WATCH WONDERING HOW SHE WAS DOING, ITS HARD BEING IN A TIME ZONE THAT IS SUCH A LOT OF HOURS AHEAD, BY MY RECKONING, SHE WILL NOT BE IN SURGERY YET……SO IT WILL BE NIGHT HERE, WILL DO A LOT OF PRAYING BEFORE MY LIGHT GOES OUT………………LOVE YOU SUE, JUST GET BETTER………………………..JEN X

    • I JOIN IN YOUR PRAYERS TONIE for SUE…NOTHING MORE TO ADD TO YOUR PRAYERS AS IT COVERS EVERYTHING I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR SUE. BEING CATHOLIC, I ALSO PRAY TO ST. JUDE AND ST. ANTHONY patron saints for difficult cases and MIRACLES.. . I WILL JOIN IN PRAYERS AT 1:30 …I BELIEVE SUE AND I ARE THE SAME TIME ZONE….HOPING TO HEAR SURGERY WENT WELL . LOVE AND HEALING ENERGY BEING SENT…..JO XXXX

      • Jo, once a Catholic friend gave me a statue of a saint and said he was the saint for the hopeless … I don’t know which saint that might be but I was a bit shocked that he thought I might need the help of that saint 😦

      • During lent and when I travel I wear a St Jude that was my grandmother’s on her chain with her ” four way” medal and a tiny medal of Pope Paul VI (have no idea why she had that). We all teethed on the big 4 way medal as did my sister’s and a cousin’s children. All the medals are cery worn lol. I wear my crucifix and my patron saint of Anne routinely the rest of the year. My dogs all wear St Francis medals which i bury with them. I can just see someone doing a scientific dog thousands of years from now and finding religious medals with canine skeletons. St Perigrine is a patron saint of cancer but many pray that various saints pray for them when face with situations such as little Harry or for Sue. I don’t pray that the saint fix or heal but that they pray for our loved ones as well as we do much as I would ask any other people I love to pray for an intercession from God. I think all of us are sending prayers, energy, and love per our personal belief systems to both Sue, Harry, both of their families and to each other as we all are in need of all the help we can get.

      • LAURA, YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT ON AS FAR AS THE PATRON SAINTS ARE CONCERNED. WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT BELIEF SYSTEMS AND ARE SENDING OUR PRAYERS AND ENGERY PER OUR BELIEFS., MY GO-TO PATRON SAINT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ST. JUDE. ST. JUDE IS FOR “DIFFICULT CASES” NOT “HOPELESS” CASES. I IN NO WAY MEANT BY PRAYING TO ST. JUDE THAT SUE’S CASE WAS A HOPELESS CASE. OBVIOUSLY, IT IS NOT, BUT WITH HER OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS, IT IS A DIFFICULT ROAD FOR HER.. JUST LIKE YOU SAID, LAURA, WE PRAY TO THESE SAINTS TO PRAY FOR OUR LOVED ONES AND FOR INTERCESSION TO GOD. I HAVE HAD MANY PRAYERS ANSWERED THROUGH ST. JUDE OVER THE YEARS. . THE IMPORTANT THING IS THE MULTITUDE OF PRAYERS BEING SAID REGARDLESS OF OUR INDIVIDUAL RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. I PRAY ALL WENT WENT TODAY FOR SUE.

        BRENDA, I HAVE NO IDEA WHO THAT SAINT COULD HAVE BEEN. THERE ARE SO MANY WHO REPRESENT DIFFERENT NEEDS.

        AND JENNIE, SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT LITTLE HARRY. YOU DIDN’T MENTION HARRY TO ME TODAY ON OUR PHONE CONVERSATION. MY PRAYERS FOR HIS FAMILY AND FOR LITTLE HARRY. HOW TRAGIC.
        JO XOXO

  37. Tonie
    I believe the company has finished.i would check tho. They certainly seem to be collectables

    Poor little Harry denied his life and his parents…..
    Chris

    • FOR THOSE NOT ON FACEBOOK. SUE ‘ S DAUGHTER, BETH, POSTED AN UPDATE ON SUE…HER LYMPH NODES WERE NOT INVOLVED. THIS IS GREAT NEWS, WHAT WE HOPED AND PRAYED FOR!!!!! I JUST SAW IT A FEW MINUTES AGO.
      HAVE A GOOD NIGHT TO ALL.
      JO X

      • Oh thank you Jo for letting us know. I’m so relieved and thanks be to God.
        Yes I’m sure we will all have a good night now.
        love ya
        XXX

  38. WOW WHAT A SENSE OF RELIEF…..SUE IS GOING TO BE OK, I JUST KNOW IT, AND WHILST I BELIEVE IN SAINTS, I BELIEVE MORE IN ANGELS AS SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE GATHERED BY NOW, BUT I FIND PRAYING TO JESUS TO TAKE OUR PRAYERS DIRECTLY TO HIS FATHER IS FOR ME THE BEST THERE IS, AND I HAVE COMFORT KNOWING THAT THE PRAYER OFFERED FOR SUE THROUGH THIS VITAL CHANNEL, HAVE BEEN ANSWERED, SO THE POWER OF SAINTS, ANGELS AND JESUS THE SON OF GOD, HAVE PROVED A POERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THIS EVIL DISEASE. I KNOW HARRY WILL SOON BE GONE, BUT MAYBE HE HAS A PURPOSE TO FULFILL SOMEWHERE ELSE, BUT I THANK ALL THOSE WHO HAVE PRAYED FOR HIM, AND JO SORRY MY DARLING, I THOUGHT I HAD TOLD YOU ABOUT HARRY. I HOPE TODAY IS A BETTER DAY FOR US ALL, AND THAT EACH OF US IS BLESSED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT ONE OF US HAS COME THROUGH THIS AND WILL BE WELL AGAIN…….EXCUSE ME FOR BABBLING ON, SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO WRITE AS IT COMES IN YOUR HEAD…………….LOVE YOU ALL……….JENNIE XXXXXXXXX
