imageCarly - Checklist   I love a good checklist. Not the kind on your phone but instead on real paper. I see it, I feel it, it's more real. I cross things off once they're done and keep it with me till it's complete.  I use the same pen to write and fold it up keeping it in my pocket for easy access when I need to remember my next thing to do. My list is a smorgasbord of things from what groceries I …More…

imageSabina - Tomorrow Morning  The day has finally come. I have for 6 years tried to keep my teeth and tomorrow they will be taking all the top ones out and putting in a denture. Truthfully I am very anxious. I have been watching you tube videos and preparing for all that I may have to endure. Endure is the word. I am an "Endurer". I have been enduring as a way of life like many of you.. My latest having the heart attack …More…

imageCarly - All aboard!  Illness journeys are like train rides. Multiple stops, long horizons, with possible changes due to lack of roadway or proper fuel. The whistle blows and you hear "all aboard!?" when it's time to choo choo on out. My biopsy surgeries are this week and I hear the locomotive pulling in! My conductor (in this case my dad) will be driving me in & picking me up. Tuesday is biopsy #1 which I'll be sedated for, and Wednesday is an ultrasound …More…

imageNeal - POEM The Layers, by Stanley Kunitz - Life And Loss  Someone in my poetry group shared this poem, not hers, by Stanley Kunitz. It spoke to me, and thought it might speak to others as well. "Live in the layers"...I really like that. It so fits with a mindfulness view of life. He died May 14, 2006, at age 100. He was an American poet appointed Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress twice, first in 1974 and then again in 2000. He also won the Pulitzer for …More…

imageDeborah - Three month scan, clear, sort of.  My husband had his 3 month scan and the doctor first told us everything was good.  After a few minutes he said there is one spot to watch and said it's tiny.  He said he dosent know what it is and that it could be nothing, or it could be a lymph node.  He is not planning any followup at this time, telling us we were good to go and we would do this again in 3 months.  So we are a little …More…

imageNeal - Chuck Loeb (With The Angels) And Related Artists  Chuck Loeb went to musical heaven 5 months ago...huge loss...this music is verrrrrry clean, crisp, and sooooooo together it is funk raised to the Nth degree, ..and if you know math at all, that is a goes on forever....very tight funk...personnel list if interested.

Like …More…

imageLarissa - The Quilt....journal January 10 2018  My 50th birthday came with the promise a special quilt was being made to remember that monumental day!   Last week I was presented with that dazzling quilt.  It's  vibrant orange (my favorite) colors parading with a rainbow pallet chosen worthy to share the presence of such a glorious color. My friend true to her nature was quick to point out the flaws only her eyes would ever see as my eyes gobbled up the beauty like a person starved of a …More…

imageDianne58 - Effects of Radiation and painful intercourse  Hi, I went to see my ob/gyn today because after my radiaiton treatment I have been experiencing painful intercourse.  He recommended that I use an Estring, which is a ring inserted in your vaginal area and remains for 3 months.  He said this should give me relief plus using a dilator every other day to help stretch the area.  Has anyone else experienced this and what have you tried?  I am alittle nervous about putting estrogen in my body in …More…
