This is us

Hello, everyone. I haven't posted for a while, mostly because there's not much to report, other than that we're still her! Emsnana is still alive and kicking, and she is about to get her second cataract surgery. The chemo has accelerated cataract formation, and she was delighted at the effect of having one eye repaired. She's even talking about driving!

I saw this cartoon yesterday,  but I couldn't figure out how to cut it and paste, so I've put in the web site instead. It so well captures our lives right now.



Thomas, Susan J threw a punch at your cancer.
Thomas sent you a prayer.

Sounds like GOOD stuff... thanks for the update...

when a ladybug lands on someone I always think it is good luck and also that there are spirits of loved ones around... I went to an outdoor (at the beach) yoga class this morning...and a ladybug landed on the woman in front of me... I felt like there were a lot of spirits keeping me company today.... just thought I would share that, and wish you lots of ladybugs and angelic spirits to surround your family...

Now that you mention this Laren, I know of several people who had cataracts surgery within a year of chemo. I'm glad all is "status quo" with Nan. Got any trips planned with the kids?
This summer we're renting a cabin again. Wer trying to avoid long trips, but we're going to Santa Fe in the fall with my sisters.

Hi Laren,
I had to have cataract surgery on both my eyes also. I did see better . But, because of being on Medicaid I had to choose whether I wanted to see close or far away. He did do one eye so I could at least see the computer but still need reading glasses. They do have it now where they can put a lens in and you can see perfect if you have the money or insurance. Please tell her I said hi and have a real good summer. The cabin sounds great.... Take Care, hugs and love and always prayers Sabina
