John lost his battle

This last monday morning after a year of chemo, radiation, and so much suffering, he is at peace.. I miss him terribly, knowing he is no longer suffering and is at peace in a better place than I am makes his passing a little easier. Of course he will always be in my heart.
I know I haven’t been on for over a year, as I decided to be his caregiver here at home. Just the last three weeks was he in the hospital, nursing, home and then hospice.
I may be back sometime in the future.

A Lost Love

John and I have been through some saddness, our beloved Spike has passed to the rainbow bridge of life waiting for us to join him.. He was a love and John belonged to him. If John went to bed, not even I could go into the bedroom with out having a fighting dog, as he protected John with all his strenght..
He became ill very suddenly, the Vet said his red blood cells were attacking his white cells. It is a disease that happens to certain breeds.. We both had tears in our eyes, as we were told he may not last the night.
We got meds in hopes that it would help. Saw the vet one more time and was a little incouraged..He was unable to get enough oxygen to his body.
Three weeks ago, on Sunday we took him outside, he went down the steps, then unable to get back up, so I helped him. He sat at John’s …

Thank You

I certainly appreciate and hope you enjoy it.

Just Wondering

After reading John’s journal, and I agree with him. I am wondering how many people believe in reincarnation? I grew up in a Christain family, went to Catholicism, then off to college.. There I studied Darwin, and different sciences concerning life… Of course, I was questioning several things..but never really mentioned them, just sort of tried sorting them out myself. Then my son that was 17 and I were discusing our souls ( he drowned 3 weeks later) and I asked him if he believed we had a soul and just what he thought it was, his reply was our yes I believe mom, it is our energy. Something that changes but one can not destroy.
We dropped the subject ( I raised all my children in the Lutheran Faith.) and always wanted them to use their own minds.. Later in Life I found so many people were …

Thank you for all the well wishes

What a wonderful interenet family I am forunate to have. Thank you everyone for all the well wishes and thanks to John for helping me with the groups and keeping me informed..
I am doing much better and hope to be back very soon..
I certainly feel sorry for John having to put up with me and the new puppy.. I don’t really know what is the worst…lol
Hopefully in a couple of days I will be able to be on more and maybe catch up some on your wonderful work…
Thank you for all your get well wishes and prayers.

A thank you from bootie

To all of you who commented on “You light up my life” I would like to say thank you and let you know I appreciate the comments.

Bootie asked me to thank you all as she is a bit under the weather and in bed under her Dr’s orders. Hopefully she will be up to participating in a couple of days.
