DJ, I'm so sorry about your father. What an act of love it was for him to tell you not to come but to stay home and take care of yourself. 

And of course you're part of the reunion--a very important part! You model the courage and persistence that we all hope we would have if we ever found ourselves in your situation. 

Sending you a big hug. Pals

DJ,
I have been wondering about you.  
I too am so sorry about your Dad, and hope his death will come without pain and suffering.
I'm sure he knows you would be there if you could.   I will lift him up and hope that his suffering is minimal.  
Sending you strength for your fight.  PalsPals

DJ ... Just read your post.  So sorry about your dad, but he's right ... Keep fighting. It sounds like he has gained a lot of wisdom through his life and struggles.  I'm sure he know that you love him, even though you are not logistically close.  I hope his passing is peaceful and full of love, and that he will be able to order up miracles for his little girl so that your cancer disappears.

And, of COURSE you can come to our reunion!  I don't drink, so I will raise my glass of Ariel dealcholized champagne to your health and your dad's life!

DJ - I am sorry about your dad, but there's no question but that he would want you to keep fighting.  I hope his passing will be peaceful.  

Hug

You're funny Ilene! I'm good. It got tough coming on here back in the day when I was trying really hard to move forward. I'm sure you can relate. I happened to log on yesterday and saw this and thought I had to check in. How are you?

Re:Komen reunion! - Wednesday, April 10, 2013 3:57 PM
I'm doing great, Danielle!  I understand completely re stepping back.  I, too, started getting a bit afraid and had to pull back to find my new normal for a couple of years, but when Tricia posted in our FB group about the 'reunion,' I couldn't help myself.  Now I'm going to try to stick around a little to help some of the newbies as I was helped (by people like you).  It is such a valuable tool - I'm sad that it doesn't seem to be as active as it was when we were going through all of this, but, perhaps if some of us can stick around and check in every day or every couple of days, we can provide that understanding and love that we received.  Are you still at HealthNet?
