So Damned Loved

Guys, I feel SO damned loved.

Yes, I know I just wrote this morning, but I have to write this.

Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You

Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You 

Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, from the bottom of my (incredibly sensitive) stomach, from the bottom of my energy (which I seem to reach earlier and earlier each day)

I am grateful beyond belief that I’ve been permitted – welcomed – into such an amazing community of folks who make things, folks who “get things” and folks who CARE!

Today Amazon delivered a STACK of boxes from my wish list, and it was as if I were having some kind of a Cancer Shower.  Hmmm, maybe that would be an idea for a newly diagnosed person about to undergo chemo?

I apologize in advance for the time it will take me to reply to the kindnesses of folks, I’m moving pretty slowly these days, and I’m exhausted by EVERYTHING.

And folks have been donating to the paypal, which is VERY kind, and VERY helpful.  We’re looking into getting one of our sets of wooden stairs leading to the house changed into a stair/ramp.

I’m probably going to be using a walker for at least 6 months, may be a  year, I’ve heard various things from my doc. One of the issues is the major damage to my spine, and we kind of have to wait to treat that until I can get the Lymphoma under control, and THAT has to wait until the tumor is more under control.

To be honest, THAT is most of what the $$ from the fundraiser is going, so I can have easy mobility out of the house. Whatever brilliance influenced the previous owner to act in this way, he put sidewalk ramps IN THE FRONT AND THE BACK of the house, so once I’m OUT of the house, I can very easily get to the garage or the front walkway.  Thank you, previous owner, I am grateful!

But today – TODAY – I am grateful for a huge, honking stack of packages that make me feel like a queen. I actually didn’t know how much I needed a bit of that feeling until I walked in the door and saw it.  THANK YOU!
