THE CAPTAIN AND MIA


Mia and the Captain.

It hasn’t been a good year for the Captain and her sister, Mia.  Mia is home now recovering from a double bypass.  Captain Poolie is once again in the hospital with the worst of the side effects from her Chemo.  All cancers are ugly and frightening.  My mother started her ongoing battle with Colon cancer in 1948 followed by a long list of other cancers.  Bobbie’s husband, Mikey, died of lung cancer.  My father died of cancer as did my special friend Joleen.

Lymphoma is a tough one.  They say the Captain is in remission, but after this latest infusion she is at a terrible bottom.  I’m sure all good thoughts and prayers aimed her way would be appreciated.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….        

  • Himself:  Helping me. Lunch out and work at the museum.  Dinner at Costco and visit Poolie.
  • Herself:  Got started on the second quilt panel yesterday.  Following G around today.
  • Reading:  Still reading the Preston&Child.
  • Gratitude’s:  For us, for friendships.

  3. I'm sorry that your friend is going through such a rough spot. It's hard for you, too, to have to watch. Cancer makes us all feel so helpless. I just finished reading Tom Brokaw's book, "A Lucky Life Interrupted." It tells of his journey with cancer and the lessons he has learned along the way.
