Hmmmm. I'll be in same situation after tomorrow, short notice leave with nothing really planned, I guess I'll end up in Queensland somewhere restoring my vitamin D levels.

Anyway, this time of year is the yuckiest yuck of the winter here but if you find yourself staying up late you might find yourself flicking the tv over to the Tour de France, and then you can see how absurdly and wonderfully green and sunny the French countryside is right now, and you hardly dare to wish you could fall through the television and be there because you know you can't. So please enjoy it Frieda!

Have enjoyed myself a lot today, went to the beach, which wasn't there yet because the tide was late, a rare phenomenon according to a local old lady. I walked for 5 min to the nearest visible bit of beach and nearly washed ashore because of some ridiculously high waves, met a dutch couple who watched me struggle, and hung out with them on the beach all day. One lousy thing though, i forgot to put sunscreen on my feet. Ouch.

Hfox, hope you'll enjoy yourself too, even though it's yucky winter time there!

It's lovely to hear about your holidays!
I can't believe I didn't visit France when TIP was still there...hope the beach is less muddy and less jellyfishy than our Texas beaches!
And hfoxy, I hope you find something cozy and relaxing to do.

I am not exactly on vacation, but I am working a little bit less than I have been, which, I feel is a good thing.

A scary thing is that we recently discovered the baby is allergic to peanuts. Really, really allergic, had to take him to the ER. He's okay, but we have to carry an epi-pen everywhere and be those weird parents who won't let anyone touch our baby. Because I work in a health field, people keep saying, well hey, at least his mom knows what to do! This doesn't make me feel better, though, because any mom would learn what she needed to know in short order. What I worry about is other people. No one will be as careful as I will.

There are some new immunotherapies, so we will hope for those, but in the meantime, we will worry a lot.

Holy crap, Pearl! You must have been beside yourself that day. Poor little bebe!
I feel like giving you a hug.

jesus christ, so you come back from a relaxing holiday, all happy and stuff, and your mom tells you her cancer got terminal. it's now moved to the bones and intestines. i feel like i've already hit rock bottom and i know it's only going to get worse from here.

i can't believe i just had the last happy week in the next 2 years.

my mom's in the hospital, her bowel has stopped working or something. she thinks she's going to die tomorrow.

i've got the same feeling like the week before my cat had to die, the impending doom stuff.

Oh no, I've just come in to say thanks for the piratey postcard, and here's this horrible thing you came home to. I'm so sorry Frieda, so sorry. It's this thing we all must deal with, the one thing we all really have in common, and yet knowing that doesn't help very much.
I'm sure you have some very complicated feelings about it that boil down to overall rotten. Try to eat a little and sleep a little. Much love to you. We're here.

Frieda, I'm so sorry to hear this. I think being there with your Mom is all you can do. The hospital staff are well trained to keep her comfortable as much as possible, and I hope you can spend some time with her. I can imagine how difficult this is for you.

thanks all, it means a lot. the vacation seems ages ago already!

tomorrow turned into today and she's not dead yet, she was taken for emergency surgery this afternoon to fix a blocked colon. there was a tumor in the way. they chopped out the part of the colon which was blocked and sewed the edges back together. like plumbing but without the duct tape.

pfft!

Frieda if you are someday sitting with your mom while she is sleeping
do this exercise
to be helpful
imagine she is sitting up and younger
(perhaps she is 8+ months pregnant with you)
imagine you are in a huge flower garden filled with
millions of pink roses and you are patiently making a simple crown from them
and placing it on her head then you
bend down to get rose petals from the ground
and place within the crown until no more will fit
continue this making slightly smaller and smaller crowns until eay up
high you place a single
pink rose

this will help
i promise
ox Love Mo
