It's just me checking in on you guys! I spent some time catching up. I'm sad for recent the losses in our group and other disappointing news, but we realize this is something heavy we are dealing with. I'm delighted over the many good reports though; successful surgeries, good scan results for Kenny and Rheaeliza, And I F*ng LOVE Sky Pups attitude and wish her the fondest memories on her road trip!.. Damn, this is the stuff that makes me smile.
We are holding Katie's Celebration of Life this Saturday at the State Park at the Barnegat Inlet Lighthouse on LBI. IDK how many of you are fairly local and up for travel but anyone and everyone from this board is welcome. It is from 1-3pm. If were in my power I would charter flights for you folks to be here. Carole's good friend is quite a videographer and I'm hoping for some good footage to provide links to. The forecast is showing a great day, sunny high 60's at the beach.
We are doing OK, as best we can. How terribly we miss her. I still cry at sometime every day, but I pull myself up and am able to function. Having to deal with all of her stuff...her car, accounts, med bills etc. doesn't help but that's almost done now.
My thoughts and hope is for each and every one of you to live your lives to the fullest. Fight hard, but don't let the fight take you out. Maintain that difficult balance between aggressive treatment and QOL. Absorb every ounce of beauty and love that exists here along our way....this is the best we can do.
All my love,
Father/Caregiver to beautiful 25 y/o daughter with mCRC Stg 4
