Hope everyone is doing ok today.

Its been a dark hole for the past few weeks.  Remembering June 9th 2015 was the day we found out Sandi's breast cancer had metastasized to her brain. June 9th wasn't a trigger I had anticipated.  I see a lot of posts about exhaustion.  I get up try to eat and have coffee and then go back to bed.  Barely staying ahead of the days chores.  And packing for my London trip is at a stand still.  Have to get back to that.  16 months and the loneliness is overwhelming.  I am looking forward to seeing my son and his wife.  Just have to get to the airport and make it happen.  

Thanks for listening

Hi suzan,

I didn't see this feed until today. I hope you were able to find some peace yesterday. It sounds like you made the best of it.

amen to that.

Comment by Barzan on Thursday

I wish to thank all of you for sending me good vibes and support.  To pass the day so far, I sat at my sewing machine and made chemo hats for breast cancer patients at the hospital where I retired from.  It was the best way I could think of to spend this day.

Hugs to all,

Suzan: Hugs and good vibes to you from The Western Reserve.

Tekwriter: Sorry for the timing of your surgery. Hugs to you as well.

Bergen: Sometimes the hardest part for me when I travel and there are several other couples present--is the mere presence of those couples--especially if there are plenty of PDAs going on. Eh, bien...I can't do anything about those occasions, but traveling with a group is sometimes cheaper than if I were to go alone; hence, I just deal with things as best I can.

KJPE: I hope you have a good time with your friends, even though this is going to be a difficult trip for you.

riet: People are just capable of doing many stupid things. I have been in similar situations over the years. Hugs to you too.

Thinking of is so hard and even more so when you are sick...

Comment by riet on June 13, 2019 at 5:31am

Dear Susan,  All the best for you, and a big hug on this day of grief and sadness.  With all my love.

Comment by Tekwriter on June 13, 2019 at 5:21am

So sorry Susan. If I was closer I would make you some soup and bring it over. Sending loving vibes your way.
