April?



















Hello April?  It's almost over!  Where has the time gone? Summer is finally around the corner as I know my Illinois folks have been patiently waiting for some warmer weather.  Mom does so much better with her sunshine!  She really pushes herself to keep active and enjoys soaking up the healing sun between treatments.

She's hanging on and fighting every day.  People always ask how she is doing and honestly given her situation she does appear to be doing very good.  I know she doesn't feel very good.  It's a very fine emotional balance of getting the right amount of sympathy (so you don't feel that others are ignoring your situation) and getting encouragement or positive reinforcement even though your situation is not ideal.  Did I explain that right?  It might be difficult for me to explain but when Mom talks to me about it I understand her completely.  She wants to live as if she doesn't have cancer but she still needs sympathy and encouragement.

Thank you for your prayers, positive thoughts, love and hugs! We thank you again for stopping by to see how things are going!  I'll write again soon!
