Come and let me help you.

A year ago today I was in hospice care at home. My time was short, because of the nature of the main lymphoma I have to live with. I was so grateful to be where I was, able to see my loved ones OK, able to know that life is so good. Today, I am in partial remission once again, taking a drug that wasn't available to me a year ago, having a chance at even more time, and out of hospice care! I am walking for months now, wearing clothes on most days, able to see with my eyes and not just my heart. Go ahead, complain about anything to me, I love you, I see your challenges, frustrations, pain and hurts. But, for me, my hurts, my disappointments, they pale in the presence of this gift of existence, for me and for you.Let's Help Rebecca Save Lives!


  1. Can I complain about that weatherization program? They have been torturing me. Every time I send them something they want, weeks pass and then they call me and ask for something else. Now they want ANOTHER profit and loss. All the aggravation is stressing me out. I suppose that's what they want, people to get so stressed, they give up. Unlike your fight, I don't know if this one is worth it. On a good note, lilacs are blooming and people who pass my house wave and beep their horns since we put in the picket fence. Who knew that I would make more friends by putting up a fence? Ironic.

    1. You have so much going on in your life, you can not help but be easily stressed, just smile, send 'em the papers, and go on with your day. One day, out of the blue, they will telephone and arrange a visit, and BOOMBAMBOP, you will be rolling along to weatherization! Keep on living your life without it, and when it happens it will be a gift!
