    Hi Cindi, Have a great time! I've never been to the windy city so I can't give you any ideas as to what you should see but I know you'll have a blast! Tip up a cold one for me! Hugs & prayers, Melanie
  3. Maryanne posted an update on CathyR from her sister on 7/7. I'm afraid it doesn't look good. I put a post on it to push it back to the top. Hugs & prayers, Melanie
  4. OOPS - Cathy posted it on May 23. Don't know where I got 7/8 from! So sorry. Ok, now I'm worried too. Does anyone have her number from the calling circle? Take care, Melanie
  5. The last thing I've seen from CathyR was the post from July 8th. I put a reply on it to push it back up to the top. Hugs & Prayers, Melanie
  6. Just wanted to push this back up to the top. Someone was looking for CathyR.
  7. 1.) That I am here for my first anniversary! Neither of us thought we would see this day together. 2.) That I finally allowed myself to open up & marry the man I loved - heck of a way to wake up, but I'm glad I did. 3.) That even after being together for over 10 years, we still have that special glow of the newlyweds that we are. 4.) That my Hubbie is so sweet - he still loves to brush my short little hair & rub my puffy feet & achey back. 5.) That God has given me yet another good day to receive & give all this love. Hugs & prayers to all, Melanie
  8. Dear Melanie, Just want you to know that my prayers are with you. You remind me so much of myself, interesting that we have the same name. Just keep the positive thoughts flowing as much as possible. Hugs & prayers, Melanie
  9. Dear Val, I'm so sorry. Just keep in mind that this is not an end but another beginning. Since I've been on hospice, my pain & symptom management has been incredible. I know how hard it is to be at the point when the fight ends but the comfort level is truly a blessing. I pray that God be with you all & bring comfort to everyone in the family. Hugs & prayers, Melanie
  10. 1.) My Grandmother's pain is finally under good control. 2.) My new bone pain is almost under good control. 3.) A wonderful new friend named Patti. She is an incredibly sweet lady - I feel truly blessed in having "met" her. We met on e-bay when I bought some of her fabrics that were on auction. 4.) Having a great neighbor. He broought over some home made soup today - he's a really good cook. Took some to Grandmother. 5.) Finishing a lovely wall hanging to auction off at the benefit. Hugs & prayers, Melanie
  11. Dear Maryann, Thank you for the info. I;m terribly saddened by the news. I will keep all of you in my prayers that the transition is as painless & smooth as possible for all. Cathy has always been a bright spot on this board & I'm sure she will continue to shine long after her soul departs. Hugs & prayers, Melanie
  12. Greg & I add our heartfelt prayers. Hugs & more prayers, Melanie

    5 for 7/9/05

    1.) All of the incredible donations that we've received for the benefit we now have a grand prize of a custom designed computer system! WOW! (I'll let you all know when raffle tickets go on sale - we're still waiting to fill in one more good prize on the ticket - then, I'll print them). This kind of thing really restores my faith in humanity! 2.) Knock on wood, it looks like I'm going to make it to my first wedding anniversary! We have been together for more than 10 years but just never got married till after my dx. (7/13/04) 3.) My wonderful health cats who always seem to know when mom needs a little extra TLC. 4.) Beautiful weaather yesterday to use my new back yard swing. 5.) My sweet canaries who sing so prettily for me first thing in the morning.
  14. Oh what a glorious day! Hope you all hold that feeling in your hearts forever! Hugs prayers, Melanie
