Hi all, I don't know if anyone is still reading or not, but a few weeks ago, I developed jaundice and after the Drs tried to put a stent in, they discovered the liver was pretty much devoured by the spreading cancer. They told me to go home, get my affairs in order, spend time with my family, and enjoy what time I have left. (weeks to a few months)
I am fortunate I have no pain and am still able to eat, walk, do all my personal stuff...just have severely reduced energy. So my legal stuff is pretty much in order, details worked out with my children and grandchildren and husband, and now just to enjoy the time.
Friend Jennifer is still planning a garage sale at her home in Tigard for the 12th of May. She and another friend came Sunday and we packed up two carloads of stuff (and I had already taken a big load up before.....and Nils will take a load up Friday and Monday). Does this give you any clue how much stuff there is??? And there is still more....
This life has been a very crazy run, with lots of challenges along the way...but I am grateful for all the many and varied experiences I have had, and all the friends I have made along the way, as is especially evident now. My family has always meant the world to me...my 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren. What joy...
So dear friends, I don't know how much more often I will post, but if you are in Tigard on the 12th, email me and I'll give you the address.
Hugs to all and thank you for your support!
