Feeling so grateful that my pain is much better today.

The prayers, the rain, the lying in bed for hours and reading and chatting with friends and listening to the cat purr… Your loving thoughts and messages. Thank you.

In the background of all that is happening this week, my dad had open-heart surgery. He came through well but is still in ICU.

I was so happy to tell my mom today that my pain was better. She has so much weighing her. My improvement helps her tremendously.

We’re all walking through the desert in Mary Janes, heads bowed and hands folded in prayer. Thankful for improvement. Thankful for all of the amazing people in my life.

    Peace and blessings to you three and to your parents. Sounds like a whole shovel-full got dumped on you.

    I’ve been reading about you a long time. Your blog is comforting to me. I, too, have ovca–since 4/08 and two recurrences. I am a UCSF patient. I just want to send you warmth and affection as I know how horrible the disease is. I’m hoping you and your dad are recovering. Is your pain lessening? Have you had any answers? Blessings to all of you and Little J.
