Halo, wow, that's beautiful.  There is great strength in knowing we are not alone.
Well done.

Elise,

Please tell him he is in my thoughts.
What I do for someone here, I hope someone else does for him - offer him everything they've got.
Is he able to check his email now?



in my world

I think of you now in my beep-filled silence,
the night infused with struggling life and losing death.
Wonder if I'll make it this year
to watch cornucopias flower the pine cones shatter
in your backyard, talking in senryu.
There is much to say and yet nothing -
we have been here before
and yet
we're clueless. The only language of value
is one you're too far away to show.

Arti and all, He is not able to access a computer yet, and it is looking like he won't for a few days at least.
He has loved the phone calls from members here and the messages I have relayed.   He sounded very upbeat
tonight, and is hopeful about the Oncologist's tentative plan of action.   He will let me know as soon as anything
happens.
  Again, if you would like contact information, just shoot me a message.

Mystic,(Gary) has been moved to the Oncology floor at the hospital.
If you want his new room number, just send me a message.   He
seems more upbeat due to a real plan of action now.  All of your
thoughts and prayers are appreciated at this time.

Thanks to everyone for their gracious, heartfelt support and well wishes. I admit, I have been moved to tears...knowing how much you all love and care for me. Words cannot express my gratitude for the gifts of friendship and offered prayers. You each hold a special place in my heart.  *hug*

I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

Mystic!  How great that you got hold of a laptop and could write from your hospital bed!
Of course we love you!  We are family here!

Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.

G,

Hope you're feeling better.
Good luck with everything, we're just a shoutout away.
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Awaiting my discharge orders. I'll be home in a couple of hours and ready for my second chemo treatment early next week. I just wanted to thank everyone again for their kindness and prayers. I am truly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community.  *hug*
