There are no words to truly express my thankfulness this beautiful day. My Mom had received the news a couple of months ago from her GP that she had some form of blood or bone marrow cancer and we have been living in limbo and in fear waiting for her to get into a specialist and to have all of the diagnostic tests completed. We've finally got the results, and while she does have a form of bone marrow cancer, it is one that is controllable with medication and one that will not (hopefully) shorten her life. Mom is already responding amazingly well to the treatment medication and is even able to decrease the dosage she is on. She will have to be on the medication for the rest of her life and will have to have routine bloodwork every couple of weeks to monitor her condition but considering what other diagnoses and outcomes were possible we are so thankful.
I just want to thank each and everyone of you who has said a prayer or an incantation or whatever else you may have done in support of my Mom and myself. I've said before that I am not a religious person but I do believe in the power of positive support and energy no matter what form that may be expressed in. So many of you have sent me emails and support and prayers and love through this time and it has meant the world to me and to my Mom. She is so amazed that complete strangers would take the time to think of her and intervene with the fates on her behalf and she asked me to thank each of you so very much for all you have done and for all of your support. You are all amazing and so generous, the world is a much better place because of your presence in it.
So now, I would like to ask your help for one other important person in my life. You may recall that my sister in law was undergoing surgery for bone cancer and while the surgery went well she has now developed a massive infection that is threatening to undo all of the good that the surgery accomplished. So if you can, think of her and add her to your prayers or rituals; she is a loving, kind and caring mother, wife, daughter and friend who needs all of our healing energy and positive thoughts. Thank you my friends,
