Giving Thanks

I think it is about time I gave some acknowledgement to the people who are really helping me out right now during this cancer thing. I have been so lucky to have so many nice things done for me over the last few months. I have had numerous phone calls and emails from friends and family that cheer me up a great deal. I have also received loads of really nice cards. I have kept every one. But here is a list of some really great things that have been done for me that need a special shout out.

First of all huge thanks to my parents who call, run errands, come over and help out EVERYDAY. I don’t know what I would do with out them.

And everybody who is supporting my folks with kind calls and emails. I totally appreciate that.

I owe huge thanks to: (in the order that my brain coughs them up)

My cousin P who sent me an extremely sweet and thoughtful care package after my surgery.

C and G for the fancy bouquet of flowers that were delivered to my door.

S for the beautiful personalised handmade quilt. Wow!

Mrs. S who makes me her special Iranian rice every week. Yum.

Lbo, my cousin, who is still working on the knitted wig and who phones and comments on a regular basis. Looking forward to wiggy.

T Mou who emails all the time and sent me a wonderful care package today. Thanks Mou.

Spoonie for the hilarious and much appreciated care package. Our cats were separated at birth.

WHFRopera who spent a lot of time troubleshooting and ultimately facilitating my radio blog. You rock.

K and S, friends of my parents, who sent me a cheque that enabled me to get an MP3 player and rejoin the 21st century.

P Mistress who calls and cracks me up on a regular basis. Not to mention the prolific emailing. Holla Cheetah.


The folks who lurk too…I know there are a few of you. Don’t be shy.

M and E and G who helped me get some effective anti-nausea supplies recently. Woo Hoo. G also lent me his clippers to shave off the ‘do. Huge help.

The docs and nurses at the Cancer Clinic who are SO NICE.

All the people out there who are praying for me. I do appreciate that a great deal.

And if I forgot anybody for anything just know that my chemofied brain did it. Not my heart. You are appreciated.

The The in the radio blog? As if I could love you any more.

mrtl-I love The The but I can't take credit for it this time. whfropera added it to the playlist. She rocks.

That's a really great list. I'm glad you have so much support. Going through the thing that you are must be horrible. I just hope that having people behind you makes it tolerable.

Von Krankipantzen said...

squirl-you know what? It isn't nearly as bad as I thought it woudl be. Chemo that is. The uncertainty sucks.
