Melinda Posted April 29, 2004 Share Posted April 29, 2004 Dear all, I'm sorry I have been MIA these last few weeks. Things became a tad too crazed in my life and I really didn't have the emotional energy to check the board--let alone contribute much. Please accept my apologies. As you may have read, Geoff and I did have the great pleasure of meeting Denise in Central Park (New York City) at the second annual TLG Classic, as well as the dedicated and determined family and staff related to this event (that raised over $500,000 on Sunday for lc research at Memorial Sloan Kettering). As you may have also read, Denise and her family need our thoughts and prayers right now. As for me--I have gotten strep throat and pneumonia from my fifth graders (at least I didn't get scarlet fever, like one of them!). So, even though I have 1,000,001 things to do; my boss at school on my case for being out sick; and incredible guilt that I have "contaminated" Geoff so that he can't risk seeing his mom for a few days--my body is FORCING me to listen to it and REST. The horrible part about it is that with the strep (hoarse) and the pneumonia (bad cough)--I sound so much like Geoff's mom does now. He used to come home to get a break from that stressful, worrisome sound--and now he is trapped with me making it (albeit, in a far less serious situation). The poor, poor man. The FAR more important news is that his mother made it through two weeks of WBR with limited side effects--is on a week's break -- and goes in for a CT scan on Friday. We all want to thank you so much for all of your thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes. I have been remiss in not responding to many of your kind thoughts; a fact for which I am truly sorry. I just found it very emotionally difficult to be on the board recetly, for some reason. I don't really know why. Please forgive me for being both rude and weak. Back to bed for me. Sincerely, Melinda Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
