All bad things come in three, they say.

First the loss of Marge and now a long life friend of Mommy Muys and mother of a friend of mine is dying soon and today I got a message from Dubai, that the mother of my son in law has pancreas cancer with metastasis to the liver and all the area around. I've met her only a few times, nice lady and still too young to die.

Life sucks sometimes.
Iske May had planned to come home for a few weeks at the end of the month, but now they're both flying home tomorrow night.

So...if you can spare some more hugs for us, please send them over.

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

I offer healing thoughts, and hugs, and wishing for you strength through these difficult times. I really do understand how devastating this news must have been for you and Mommy Muys.
Yesterday was my long (10AM-5PM) chemotherapy session, to fight my liver cancer that had metastasized from the colon cancer that was removed last October. So I am a bit more tired this evening as the side effects begin to kick in.
I'm hoping your son-in-law's mother is being treated with  chemotherapy? Even though it has some mean side effects, the trade off is worth it. My tumor has shrunk and I have hopes this C beast will go into remission by the end of the year, though the oncologist says all we can realistically expect is to keep it under control, keep it from growing and hopefully keep it from spreading elsewhere. There is no cure, only ongoing treatment to delay the inevitable.
It forces one to come to grips with the reality of our own individual mortality. Finding the strength to accept what is happening and deal with it is the hardest challenge I've ever been given. But I look back at my life and am grateful to have made it this far, to age 63, when many others in my past disappeared so young. I have some things I still want to accomplish, and being the proverbial procrastinator, I always put things off to another day. Now, I am trying to stay focused enough to  finish some art projects that important to me. And I have my 21 year old daughter here with me now, helping me through all this mess. I want to spend more YEARS loving her.
Stay close to Mommy Muys, give and receive all the hugs and love you can from family and friends, and be as strong as you can.
You can always count on the Pips family for hugs and support.
Hundreds of hugs to you, dearest Titia.

Titia, you have the heart and the strength of a Titan, but even Titans need love and support ~ and that, my dear Netherlander, is in plentiful supply for you, here at Pipsdale!

Love, prayers, and healing hugs to you all!

Love,
Linda

I have plenty of hugs to share with you - I am expessing a basket full to you as soon as I hit "submit reply".

I am glad that you lean on friends when times are hard.  

Thinking of you,
Alison

Thank you all for the support. It's nice to hug a friend when time gets a bit tough.

Got a very nice letter from Tracie, Marge's daughter. We took up writing each other after Marge died. I'm collecting all the poems Marge has written on PiP for her.

Love, Titia

Hello, Titia. I'm sorry I wasn't around for the initial hug and prayer fest, but know that mine are with you and yours and theirs.

We keep putting one foot in front of the other, don't we, dear?

An extra hug and kiss for Mummy Muys and you, too.

Done.

What would you attempt to do...if you knew you could not fail?
