thank you

Hi all. I'm back at the library and only have a few minutes. They want me back by 3 and it's after 2 now. Plus it's a long walk. I had my bone marrow biopsy today, a day early. Will have the results in three days. They had a really hard time because they couldn't find any of the liquid stuff they needed from inside my bones. Will be in a lot of pain for the next few days. Thank you all for calling me. Kim, you really brightened my evening when you called. I love you guys, all of you that are checking in on me and making me feel cared for.

I had asked my family to take up some donations at church for me so Robert and Cameron could come spend some time with me. They had my hopes up and I finally felt like I had something to look forward to, then I get a phone call last night from my aunt telling that my cousins husband wouldn't let her ask the church. And he was the one that got all holy roller on the phone and promised at least $300 plus the $100 he was putting up. What a hypocrite. I told her to tell him he could keep his money.

I can't think straight with the chemo and the morphine they gave me earlier isn't helping either. I'm sorry if I forgot to mention anyone. I love you all.

I'm so lonely!

I am currently in the hospital library using their computer. I don't have a lot of time so this will be short. My mailing address at the hospital is the same but they have placed me in a different room. You don't need the room number to mail me but the phone number is different. Absent minded me forgot to write the phone number down to give to those who have been calling. So, if you call and don't get me, it's just because I'm in another room. Hopefully I'll be able to get back over here and give you my new number. I wish I could thank all that have sent cards but some of you do not give a return address and I don't have a link to your web sites. For those that are reading or know someone who has sent me a card, please pass a long my heartfelt thanks.

Thank you for thinking of me. This is one of the hardest things I've ever had to endure just for the fact that I am alone.

One more thing and this will probably be my last entry for a while. Some of you have been asking for updates while I'm in the hospital. I don't have any way of giving updates and no one has volunteered so the best I can offer is the hospital web site in a previous entry. It has the phone numbers and address to the place. And I'll be on the patient registry so it shouldn't be too hard to contact me.

Mail can be sent to..
