Last evening for the first time, I felt a lump at the base of my skull that is my brain tumor. Not exactly like the first time I felt my first baby kick in utero, but oddly similar. I’m not sure what it means. There was a point two weeks ago, when I wanted to […]

Dear Bethany, I still remember when you were born, I had rooming in with you. We were rarely separated for any great length of time from then on. Yet I wasn’t with you, when you died. Although I know that I couldn’t have changed what happened; I still wonder if my being there would have […]

I’m not at all afraid of ending this journey, because I’ve been there before. My uncle took me and my brother along with his three daughters to visit friends of his at their summer home on Lake Ontario in 1952. While he fished on a nearby dock, we all played in the water. I had […]

My dear AJ, I still remember your birth all those years ago. I love you and miss you forever. If all I’ve believed since childhood is true, perhaps I’ll see you soon.

So, we are after all an interesting species, particularly when it comes to dealing with death. Not our own here, but how we treat others who are dying. Perhaps this is only my experience, but I doubt that. And then there’s covid 19 thrown into the mix. I truly am so grateful to all those […]

Happy Birthday, my dear sweet Bethany, I will love and miss you forever.  How much I’ve thought of you and AJ since November of last year.  When the thought that I might see you and AJ again, helped me to accept my possible demise from the large, very  aggressive brain tumor partially encasing my right […]

Unbelievable, today we have macabre theater thanks to this despicable president, who I’m sure planned whatever was necessary to stop the recording of the electoral votes and certification of the election of President elect Biden.  Where are the security people who would have kept this from happening?  Of course if approval for security rested with […]

Tomorrow I go into Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia at an ungodly hour to have a biopsy and possible surgery done on the aggressive, invasive tumor at the base of my scull that may have caused the right side of my face to swell for the past almost eight weeks.   There is little I […]

Obviously I haven’t had time to post here, yet I have to rave about the portable stair climber that Laura got for me.  It’s the only way that I can get from my second floor bedroom outside to a wheelchair and transport van.  Although this is all hopefully temporary, Laura’s buying the stair climber was […]
