We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program...

Sorry I've taken so long for the update to the update. Lots has happened. Some good. Some... not so much. Ang has gotten good news in that her cancer is very treatable. The doctor likes her chances. She's feeling better than she was about the whole thing.
Now Terri on the other hand, got hit YET AGAIN with some crappy news. She too will have to have a double mastectomy. Her numbers were as bad as Angela's when they tested her. They wanted to do an MRI to be sure but the chemo she's been taking damaged her kidneys so they couldn't inject the dye and couldn't do the MRI... Plus two of her heart valves are leaking slightly so she just wants to just scream at the world something fierce. I don't blame her. I went to visit her at her house yesterday and she said "You know, I just want some sense of normalcy... is that too much to ask?" Well Terri, I'm guessing that normal and our family have never been on familiar terms so I would have to say a big fat NOPE to that one.... Me, I'm doing okay. Besides, what do I have to complain about? The girls are the ones that are going through all of this garbage. I just get to watch....

I've seen the face of courage and strength in your family dear friend. I'm constantly astounded at how everyone keeps going despite the odds. My bet is, with love like that there isn't anything your family can't face together. As always you and yours remain in my thoughts. (Hugs)Indigo

But the good moments still accumulate, because you help make it so. That is a gift.~Mary

I agree with Barbara Mik, you may not be touched physically- but you're going through it just the same. Always you are all in my prayers! Keep being your sweet and silly self Mik, that is the best meds you can give your sisters. You may not think much is coming out of this, but one positive thing I can see from outside the situation is the incredible strength and inspiration that Terry, Lou, Angela and you along with your sweet gal give so many of us. Thank you isn't much when you're all going through it- but thank you all the same. God Bless ya Mik.
