Memo from Mom

Dictated by Mom to Brian:

I'm fine. How are you? Wish you were here and I were not.

I feel for the first time in months that we're getting to the bottom of my problems and healing them. I'm really being taken care of. It is so great to have all three kids here for this.

Hero can't sneak in to visit me here, but I'm waiting for the day. Meantime, I hear he's King of the Palace.

Thank you to everyone for your heart-felt support. I'll be back blogging as soon as I can. Much love to you all!


Dispatch from the Front

This is Brian (Mom's son, the "Mom's Cancer" guy) stepping in at Mom's request. She'd love to be corresponding with everyone and letting you know how she's doing. Unfortunately, the hospital she's in now has pathetic wireless Web capability, so she's offline for a while. So she asked me to step in and I'll try to post a "Memo from Mom" as often as I can.

I spent yesterday and this morning with Mom, and she's doing pretty well and continuing to improve in remarkable ways. Understandably, she doesn't want all her intimate healthcare information broadcast worldwide, but after being neglected in a few other facilities (despite Nurse Sis's best efforts--very frustrating for her to know what Mom needed and not getting anyone to listen to her or act on it), she's now receiving the most intense, solicitous and professional medical care I can imagine, all aimed at solving her problems and getting her back into the world. In just the past couple of days they've stabilized much and found previously undiscovered problems that they're proceeding to fix. It's quite a turnaround and Mom's spirits are considerably lifted. And, as far as anyone can tell, she remains cancer-free.

More later. Thanks to everyone for your good wishes, energy and prayers, Mom says she feels them all.

From Mom

Dear Friends old & new, known and not yet introduced:

Thank you. I feel all of your lifting up and energy coming my way. It's working!

It has been really rough but today (4th of July) it is 4 am and I awake feeling much better (I'm not wanting to go back to sleep!).

Today I get moved to a rehab facility. Counting on it to be tough. I want to literally WALK out of there. They will have 3 hours a day of training - I HOPE it is like Boot Camp. Please help me hold that thought.

I feel honored to be called "Mom." Please feel free to ask "Kid Sis" about me - she'll tell you!

Hi From Mom

This is Kid Sis posting for Mom.

She's still in the hospital, but is doing great work educating all the nurses and doctors about miracles! She's made many friends there, and has a big 8 x 10 of Hero to show off to all her visitors.

Keep those candles lit for her!

Much love and thanks.
