Rena I agree and this is another reason that I love volunteering at my local cancer wellness centre and wish I had gone there through my own treatments!

I know I haven't been here much for the last 6 weeks with my daughter and granddaughter here.  They leave Tues, in a few days.  We have had good and hard times, emotional times, stressful times.  It has been wonderful spending the time with my granddaughter.  She mostly spoke French when she arrived and mostly speaks English now.  She is a "2 1/2" year old with many of those issues but such a darling at the same time.  I try to support my daughter as I know it takes so much energy with this age. 
   I came home from work today  and my daughter was wiped out and frustrated as Evangeline wouldn't take a nap again.  My daughter is getting stressed about going back I think also.  I took my granddaughter outside to help me water my flowers - she loves to do that and I bought kid size watering can for her also to help.  I had to go up on a  ladder to clean a gutter out (pine tree is  losing too many needles) and she was below me and  kept saying "careful gamma!!  Melts your heart.  Sure am going to miss her and they change so quickly at this age!!
   Enough for now.  I will be here more after they leave.  Sorry I haven't been around to offer much support.

Rose, Sounds like you are really enjoying your beautiful grand daughter. They do change so quick, I am always surprised when is has been 6 months since we have seen our grand kids and they have learned so much and talk so much more. It will be nice for her to speak both English and French. Do enjoy the last few days with your daughter and grand daughter. Make sure you have some pictures of all of you together...will be so nice to have to remember your time together. Hope and strength, Julie

My sister lives in NY, her grandchildren in Florida. They skype a lot. I threaten my children - when they get married and have kids, I'm selling the house, and just traveling from one to the other depending on the season. Hopefully someone will be in the south so I can winter there, and someone up north so I can go there. Rose, enjoy your time with them, I am sure you miss them already!!

My ex-sister in law  (my kid's Aunt) age 50s was just diagnosed with  laryngeal cancer.  She had a port inserted for chemo and is getting radiation for the next 7 weeks.  She is Stage 2-3 at this point.  They will determine later if they will have to remove her voice box.  They have placed a PEG tube to beable to hydrate and feed her during treatments  etc due to radiation in that area causes alot of burn issues with your esophagus.  My heart goes out to her, her husband, girls and grandkids. 
Her, her children and I still communicate via facebook and when we run in to each other infrequently, we catch up and talk like we are still family.  I plan to see her this next month.  She has such a tough road ahead of her and is keeping a very forward thinking attitude!!!

Rose, I'm sorry for this sad news.  I pray she wathers her treatments and can move on.  It all sucks!

Hug
