concern is that the damn cancer is back.
ct scan today doc is on wednesday.
she has had a really rare infection, took them almost a year to figure it out. has had a port in her arm for about 2 months for antibiotics.
will share the full story sometime.

for now, for those who pray, will ya?

I hate being this far away....
(she's in MN)

that is my buddy wolfgang. he lives at the senior highrise I worked at back home.
he lived across from one of my gals I did take care of. we would often eat dinner with him, and he and I became friends.
I always did Christmas dinners, hodgepodge of guests...more friends than family and an occasional stranger...wolfgang came once and was there every year after!

good guy.

The waiting and not knowing is harder than the disease at times.

yeah it sure is.

thanks baldy, tje, ohiot and anyone else I missed.
don't mean to miss, brain is just a bit frazzled.

appreciate you all more than I can say.

Well you can know you are not alone as this plays out. I am fortunate that the folks at the local cancer center are some of the nicest, most caring people in healthcare I ever encountered. It is such a change I was a little leery of them at first.

yeah, mum has some awesime docs. her cancer doc, well I will love that man forever. when this all started in 2008, he just was incredible. he listened to her, never rushed her and when there were/are mix ups or screw ups he stepped/steps in. so despite it all, major blessings abounded.
