    Hi Lainy, I just wanted to give a quick hello and send you lots of love. I am still going to make it a point to come down to Arizona this year and I will not leave AZ until I get a chance to meet you! I hope you are feeling okay and I am sorry that you have had to deal with all this stuff. I admire you dearly and look forward to the day we meet!

    Thank you Karen. I asked my daughter about a week ago if I was that bad a person to get all the things I have over the years and then I thought, shame on me. Everything I ever had has been curable! How lucky am I? In a way I think it has made me even stronger. As long as it can be taken away I can handle it. Altho honestly I don’t know what I would do without this family right here! That’s one addiction that does not need curing!

    OH my goodness! Of all people, you, Patti! And Elizabeth Taylor? Too weird, Teddy loved her his whole life! Thanks for letting me know that! The bigger the world gets the smaller it becomes. Well, that makes sense to me!

    Lainy, I had a meningioma 10 years ago. I must say it was a lot easier than CC.
    I had surgery & they got the whole tumor & had no problems after! It was benign. It is the same tumor Elizabeth Taylor!!

    Lainy,

    That is something to think about. Yes, Margaret is a very sweet and caring lady and I’m so glad she is part of our family. Maybe her and others could join us. For now you need to take care of yourself. Take care dear lady.

    Love & Hugs,
    Darla

    Hi Darla…..never to late to move out here, I will be here for you. At least we should start planning a trip next winter for you, I would say for this winter yet but I think I will be a little busy! LOL

    Margaret, what a sweet lady you are and with so much feelings yourself. I am really happy due to my Happy Pills but when I woke up to these posts this morning I did well up. I hope you are adjusting to your new normal but no hurry just do things as you want to and in your own time frame.

    And Lou how sweet of you as I know how you feel just coming from your Beautiful Mother’s Journey to Peace. I saw her picture and wish I had known her. Love and strength to you.

    Hi Lainy,

    I only met you recently through this site and I’m sorry about the roller coaster ride you are on. I’ll be keeping you in my prayers that you’ll be coming in for a smooth landing, and quickly.

    As others have said, you are a big part of the core of this site, a big part of its heart and soul. I am always happy and comforted to see your messages, which are always full of so much wit and wisdom and caring and love and encouragement.

    You’re kind and encouraging words last fall helped bring me through a very dark moment after my husband’s death last fall; it was so helpful to have your soothing encouragement and comfort.

    Please know that you’re on the prayer lists of many, many people, and whatever doctor’s office or medical facility you find yourself in, take a moment to feel the warmth of the big group of friends from this site whose hearts and thoughts and prayers are right there with you.

    Love, Margaret

    Lainy, You’ve got that right. I too remember snow in May. :) Today was just beautiful and I took full advantage of it. Even got the van washed, but tonight it’s going to be nasty and then back to the deep freeze. The first winter after Jim died we got a lot of snow, but the temps weren’t bad. This winter has just been brutal and unbearable. I try to keep from thinking that if Jim were alive we probably would be living near you by now. It’s just too depressing. That said, if Jim hadn’t had CC and I hadn’t dealt with all of that, I would never have found this forum and all the wonderful friends and support I now have all over the world. For that I am forever grateful.

    Take care of yourself Lainy. I’ll be thinking of you and hoping all goes well. Keep smiling. :)

    Love & Hugs,
    Darla

    Darla, thanks so much and I am relieved that you are relieved. I hope things start warming up for you and melting! Although having lived there 35 years I know you are not done until May!

    Aw, thanks, Caroline. Teddy and I always had the attitude “OK now we know what’s wrong lets fix it!” I also think the Happy Pills the GI put me on are helping a lot! Never took them before and I am laughing at everything. I told my daughter I don’t cry at old movies anymore and she said, “so what now, you want Dr. M to increase the dosage?” We were just howling. I think you are some kind of wonderful daughter. Your Mom and Me are 2 lucky Mothers!
