BC gals

I just wanted to post a shout out to Trish (gosso23). Yippee-Ki-Yi_Yay!  She's had her last chemo this week.  She's not feeling well right now, but all that will be history for her very soon.  I think all those are have to do chemo are very brave and strong individuals and their families are heros.

Kim (demandnlilchit) has been through with her chemo for about a month now?  She's returning to her usual feisty self and is such an awesome writer.  I'm sure you've already checked out her poem she posted today.  (or was that yesterday?  the whole time difference thing has me crazy)

Barbara (evanmyangel88), where are you girl??  I'm praying for you and cheering you on.  You are in my thoughts quite a bit.  Barbara is in the midst of the most frustrating chemo and she posts when she can.

I feel like this is my J-land booby posse.  Okay, I need a better name than that.  And if you've been lurking and feel a part of the kinship due to bc - you're in the posse too!  Not that anyone WANTS to be a part of the posse.

Have you checked yourself this month??  Are you overdue for your mammogram??  Get on it!

Ryan fell within the normal range for handwriting.  I don't know if I've talked about this yet, but he was recently evaluated by the school OT to see if we could get him some help.  SHucks.  This poor child is the epitome of falling between the cracks.  He is a smart guy, that he's doing "good enough" to fall within the acceptable range.  But he's not living up to his potential!  He would just be stellar in school if it wasn't a horrible thing to write.  He used to love school, and he's ONLY in 2nd grade.  Well, more on this later.  He's hounding me at the moment.  :-)

I only know Kim from the list of women you mentioned.  I can't even imagine going through chemo. I've cared for cancer patients and they are indeed strong people!  I commend you for your fight.
Hope you have a good weekend.

Yay! Thanks for the shout out! I am so sorry I just read it. I have not been doing good at all and I am finally catching up your journal. Thank you so much. Can you believe what we have all been through together? Take care
Trish
