Time for Reflection

My Gazing BallMy husband is having a second surgery for his bladder cancer in a few weeks. Things are not the best they can be…but they are definitely not the worst either. Life somehow seems to have been put on hold and this cancer thing has consumed our lives. We are trying desparately to assimilate all the facts and options without becoming crazy with worry. It is difficult to say the least. I am still filled with hope for a good outcome in the end, but it is a long road we are facing. I ask all of you for as many prayers as possible.

Thank you to all of you who send comments and emails as they are much appreciated. This blogging world is absolutely amazing…what a comfort to find so many friends around the world.

In the meantime I find comfort in a crazed cleaning out of my sewing/art room. A purging, if you will, of all things unnecessary. Obviously a mental state that matches the excision of anything extraneous in my life as well. I am quite sure this is a perfect remedy for a soothing of the soul. Curling up with a good, light reading, book is also therapeutic. We continue our long four mile walks, we are eating as healthy as we can…also good for the mental and physical health. I am learning more patience…a blessing I am sure. And gratitude for small things has become overwhelming.

So once again…thank you to all my special friends out there. Gratefully yours, Averyclaire

    I do not feel comfortable to write in the English language about such things you are through at the moment. Since I read you first post speaking of your health worry, you are in my prayers. I would say you are thinking and doing the right thing (at least that is the way to say I might do as well…) when walking, eating healthy food, get rid of everything non necessary, calm down as far as possible (not easy…). All that will help soul and body. Actually, we have friends here in Cherbourg, France, who are facing this same heavy trouble. One of the worse part of it is being always in the situation of waiting for this or that. Good light books as you say are the best friends.
    I hope you can stay optimistic, it is worth it, as huge medical and surgery improvements are made now with cancer.
    All my best comforting thoughts and kisses to you and William
