I've been wanting to and promising to post the scoop on my mom, but things have been so hectic, between work, home and all that goes along with Mom's treatment, etc. I should start getting up in the middle of the night when things are calm and quiet; I could blog really well then. I created and am keeping up with a CaringBridge page that is chronicling Mom's journey with Cancer. I guess you could tell from the previous posts that it that awful C word that has now entered our lives a 2nd time. First, my brother was diagnosed last July and now Mom is fighting 2 cancers. Both are primaries, and one with metastasis to her hip/femur. I've included the link to the page here, so you can catch up on things.

( I can't get live links to work in Blogger for some reason; you'll have to copy & paste)

There are several journal updates thus far, so click on the link just under the entry you see on READ JOURNAL HISTORY right after you read the latest one.
( I just ask, that if you know me outside of Blogger, and are friends with me on Facebook, that you not comment on this publicly to me) - I only ask because Mom is dealing with this privately, (to the extent that she can) :) and I haven't shared with everyone. I have family members on Facebook who are not aware of the situation, per Mom's request as well. I know it might seem a little odd, but I guess we all deal with it the way we see fit.

  1. Dawn, I am so sorry to hear this. This is so similar to my own mom's story. I hope you don't mind me commenting on here about this topic, you don't even need to respond. I looked at your CaringBridge site and you have done a tremendous job with your mom's story and your articles and pictures. I will be keeping your mom and you all in my daily rosary intentions (during my horrible 2 hour commute, I have lots of time to pray). Be strong and God Bless you and your mom.


Hi, thanks for YOUR thoughts on MY thoughts! Happy reading!
