    Was down at the dock this weekend, just kinda reflecting on things. Probably not in the most positive way. I looked up and this egret came flying in, picked up my camera and got this picture that want to share. I hope it brings someone the piece it brought me.

      Isn't it strange how the universe works. What a beautiful sight and picture. I really like the way you captured the birds reflection in the water.

      May peace continue to be with you.

    That is the sheet that I am referring to. The smallest she has in that sheet is full sized. But for 24.00 and free shipping.....even after chemo these are by far my favorite sheets. U might email her and ask if she has something in twin if you don't think you could make a full sized work.

    I knew it was time for hospice when my second round of chemo did not even begin to work. So many factors have to be taken into account, regardless it's a tough decision to make. My deciding factor was my family. How would hospice benefit them? As people with cancer we deal with and enternalize things differently. For me it's not about me anymore, it is what it is and I am okay with that. I had to ask how again, how this disease is going to affect the people that love me. Hospice for me and my situation is a blessing. They help with pain control but more importantly, they support my family and friends. Since this is the beginning of the end so to speak, there is time for the hospice team to build quality relationships with the people in my life instead of them coming in at the 'last minute'.

      I'm sorry, but I admire how you're handling this. True heroes are concerned about their families. I tell nitwits that I'm not the only cancer victim in my family, as they all suffer with me. This state and the system I'm in only allows hospice in the last few months or weeks. They wanted to ship me off 2,000 miles away and do radical surgery. The oncologist could not understand the many aspects of my distress. My grandsons wanted to kick his rear. As a cancer victim, I envy the situation that you're in, where you are being treated humanely, and they care about your family. I want to thank you for sharing, it helped me to settle down and be a little bit more patient during a hard time. Thank you

    Oncologist called this morning, nothing more to do except Hospice. He wrote the order. It's okay because there is nothing stereotypical about me, including being to stubborn to give up and to mean to die. I have to many people to harass and harangue! Just sayin...

      sorry for that prognosis. My Mother was told that, same deal, ordered hospice. We had the best 10 months we possibly could. Went places, we done things, whatever she wanted. I cherish those months. I wish you the best, now get out there and harass some people

      Exactly Greg, there just numbers, miracels happen every day and who is anyone to rubber stamp me or anyone else! My grandad always said I was the only person he knew that could argue with a tree and win! Life goes on.

      We must be related-my family motto is: The good die young, and we're so cussword mean that even the devil doesn't want us. They gave my father a few months, if he got out of the hospital at all. They found it while doing surgery from a construction accident. He died about 3 years later-went fishing, hunting, helped friends on round ups, was a building inspector and sometimes got into fist fights with developers. I really cherish those extra years
