Hi DS friends.Thank you for the inquries as to how I am doing.I am recouperating well and can now do most of what I did before lung surgery. I feel good, still, and so far my spirits are ok.My Mom passed away Jan.9. Needless to say that was hard, even though I know how much better off she is now I still grieve for her. Her death was peaceful. I wasn't able to make it to her memorial service due to the fact it was out of town and I couldn't make the trip. That was HARD, but my Son and his wife, his Son and wife and his daughter and her fiance stayed with me, brought food and we watched videos of Mom with all of the family and laughed a lot. She was so much fun and we had so many good memories that it took the sting out of not being at the service. My 3 Daughters and other Grandchildren went to the service, so we had 2 services. One at my house and one at the Chapel.As to my health. I still have no symtomes of Cancer. just pain from the surgery and removal of the rib.My hospice nurse says there has been no changes in the sounds in the Lung and I appeared to be doing very good. They are surprised. I told them God was my main Dr., that he made me and he could heal me or maintain me or take me, it is his decision.I am still at peace with my decision to not have Chemo, and of course all but one of the Drs. had agreed I shouldn't have it,so time will tell what happens next.As it turned out,I do have some asbestos in the plueral fluid of both lungs, but not the mesothelioma like Donald had. I have felt Donalds' presence throughout this time and have dreamed of him often. Nothing special, he has just been here.My Family has been so very supportive and helpful.I Thank God so much for that. My Daughters and Daughter in law even got in bed with me on different nights and we ate and laughed alot. We said we were having spend the night parties even though they are in their 40's. I haven't had to stay in bed during this time. I am thankful for that too.I have been able to take care of things except lifting, bending, pulling things etc. After next week I can go back to whatever I feel like. We are still praying that God will give me more time than the DR. thought.Sometimes it is a fearful thought and I just have to tell myself that I could die in another way at any time, as any of us could.That helps me not to dwell on a time limit for now.I thank you all so much for your prayers and concern during this time. Of course I still miss my beloved Husband and grieve, but I am sure I will have that void in me until I am with him again. God Bless you all !!!!!!Jerrrie
