    Thanks Lainy, your heart is as big as the whole outdoors. I try to get on when I can. I’m always wondering how the Miracle Man is doing. I feel a happiness when I read all the posts of those of you with terrific attitudes and enjoying each day.

    Faith in all of you,
    Sophie

    Sophie, it always warms my heart to see you post. I think of you and Lisa every day. Miss your smiling face on here. Lisa, just tell everyone you are independently wealthy so you took an early retirement!!!!

    That’s right, girlfriend. I’m glad you’re retiring and feeling mostly normal. I found that that darn chemo gave me hair under my chin. Talk about feeling “just a tat masculine.” I think about you every single day, Lisa, and pray for you at night.

    I think about you a lot, Lisa, especially as my liver ressection is looming and I cannot even imagine how devastating it is to hear that the resection is unsuccessful after being given hope like that. It’s essentially all palliative care from there and I admire the courage it must take to live in the presence of your mortality.

    I follow along on your blog and am inspired by your faith. I am glad you will no longer be working and can concentrate on living life to the fullest.

    Work is overrated.

    Family is underrated.

    Best of luck and spread your love while you have it.

    Lisa………I’m with you all the way. Also, if needed you can work up to a certain number of part time hours without being penalized. Keep your chin up! You will do just fine.
    Bless Ya!

    Lisa,

    I too admire your attitude. You have made a very hard to make decision, but you seem confident that it is the right one for you & your family. I am sure that everything will work out just fine. I will be hoping for the best for you & your family.

    Take care & keep that postive attitude.

    It’s been a year already. I’m still here. Still feeling good except a little pain and fatigue. I’ve been on chemo for 20 months straight, and haven’t lost any hair! I’m looking forward to my 2-year survival mark in August, and my three-year after that, and so on.

    I just want to let you all know that it is possible to live a mostly normal life and survive with this monster disease. I’m Stage IV, and you’d never know it. As Lainy likes to say, “Attitude is everything”!

    I’m going to retire in 6 weeks, not because I have to, but because I want to be able to spend more time with my family and less time at work in the time I have left. I want to retire while I still feel up to doing things with my family. I’m scared about the financial aspect, as I don’t have any savings and I will go for a month without a paycheck until disability kicks in. But I am confident that God will provide a way.
