    Dear CM – So sorry for the pain of your loss. You can keep David alive in your memories that you cherish so much. I was married 28 years, but knew my husband for 43 years. We were soulmates and I do feel like I’m 1/2 of what I was. I feel him with me and around me, but I would LOVE to see him and hold him again. That won’t happen this side of Heaven, but I have a hope….Blessings, Susan

    Dear Aeolson – I would love to add some kind, words of wisdom, but I think Lainy covered it perfectly so I just say – follow Lainy’s excellent advice. As a matter of fact, I would like someone to do some of those things for me…and I don’t have CC. My husband did and I am missing him so much after 5 months. Blessings to you, your friend and her family. Susan

    Dear Devastated – I wish we could have competent doctors and they would have the proper follow up and bedside manner, but then I remember we are this side of Heaven and those things are not frequently the case. So thankful that you are a cancer survivor and a great advocate for hubby. This is such a difficult disease and roller coaster ride that is no fun at all. Hugs to you as you fight the fight. May you find joy and peace along the way. Blessings, Susan

    Rose – I am so sorry for your loss, but I have come to believe that there is another whole world around us that we cannot see and every once in awhile we get a glimpse of it through the visits or reminders of our loved ones. I am so glad that the pigs came and the twinkling and the opening in the sky – you are experiencing that world that many never see as they don’t have eyes to see it. Maybe we need to lose someone very special and deeply loved to be open to what else is available to us. I look upon it as God’s grace extended to us to bring us comfort and joy. Blessings, Susan

    A second opinion is generally quite helpful and I wouldn’t hesitate to pursue that course. Good luck!

    Dear Chrissy – As you know, you can only make the decisions one at a time and you will make the right ones when the time comes. I agree with you about quality of life. I hope you consider the second opinion option. Whatever you do, hold each other close. Blessings, Susan

    My husband also took Senna regularly. He found his pain increased if he didn’t. Hope it works well for your dad. Blessings, Susan

    Thank you all so much. Yes, Marion, I think it would be so awesome if we could have CC sponsored walk. It would raise money for the Foundation, give people an opportunity to get together, increase awareness, provide an avenue for education, and inspire so many. I am in favor of it. Let me know how I can help.

    Gavin – You would have loved the bagpipes. It was hauntingly beautiful. (My family name is MacGregor.)

    We miss miracles when we are not looking or because we are not looking. Congratulations to you for looking and acknowledging the wonderful progress and miracle of your life. We celebrate with you!

    Isn’t this great news? I am always in favor of a natural approach before a chemical approach. Thanks for posting this good information.
