A few weeks ago, the sanctuary where my oldest son manages, the homestead burned.  It was set by an arson.  It was the home of pioneer ornithologist, nature photograph, writer and artist.  The firemen saved a lot of the antiques all but one room was totally lost on the 2nd floor and downstairs there is a lot water and smoke damage along with one room being burned.  There was no insurance on the homestead due to having wood stoves (though they were never used in the last 50+ years) and the premium was to high.  They can't replace what was lost, the old turn of the 20th century typewriter, the camera and other artifacts.  They have not found the person who set the fire as of yet.

My heart breaks for my oldest son.  My mother is still alive, deeper into dementia and my sister faithfully stops in daily to check on her.  I am still on Taxol.  I had headaches and my new oncologist wanted me to do a head MRI and I opt to keep a diary of my headaches.  I think I was right in not doing the MRI.  Haven't been up to reading about breast cancer in a while, however still want you to know I am still around.  Thrill that Rena will be visiting Tricia.

So sorry to hear this about you son's job.  Hope they catch the person or persons responsible.
Hope your headaches are improving and good luck with your new doctor.

Thanks DJ, I can't believe Rena will be here Friday week and the time has just flown by! I'm really so sorry for your son and the owner of the Sanctuary, it must be heartbreaking to see such damage and I really hope they get the person that did this. I'm sorry about your headaches too, a friend has just started Taxol but she has a rare and serious cancer called Angiosarcoma in the bones, she's only forty and we feel so sad for her, good wishes to your Mom also and thanks for keeping us posted as I was wondering how you were.

Thank you, Tina and Tricia.  I hope you take some photos of you and Rena together and somehow post them.  If you can't on here, you can post them on my real email.  Do you have it?
