    To all the Mother's on the site, Happy Mother's Day!

    Are you able to enjoy the day, or has cancer stolen this day from you too? I know there are times in our journey that we just don't feel like doing anything, or celebrating anything. We hope you all are able to enjoy this day!

      Two years ago for Mother's day, I had just had surgery and could only have liquids. My dear son brought me home an iced coffee and we played cards.
      This year, he graduated from college as my mother's day gift. It's been a long journey for both of us. And I'm so proud of him!

      My first present today was a hemoglobin of 7 and the first transfusion I've had since 2016!

      But the day got better when my daughter and her boyfriend came with a beautiful arrangement of flowers, Reece's peanut butter cups, a huge card measuring 3' x 4', currently hanging on the hospital room wall and a $50.00 Walmart gift card. And they have been caring for my animals at home since my admission. My day ended well.
