I also missed the post about your mother's illness. I hope the surgery went well and that she's feeling better soon.

Again, thank you for your thoughts, words, and prayers.  They must be working!  The pancreatic specialist thinks they got all of it, with only one lymph node taken along with half her pancreas.  She has to go through chemo...we go see that doctor tomorrow, and he is the one who worked with me during my fight with cancer, which means she's in good hands.  She can't eat much and has lost 12 pounds she didn't have to lose, but they say by the third month she might be back to eating semi-normally.  Besides part of the pancreas, they took her duodenum, gall bladder, and part of the bile duct; it's an operation called the Whipple.  I keep seeing the guy with the toilet paper commercials in my head. She has to have prescribed enzymes now in order to properly digest her food, at least for fats, but that's better than the alternative!  We are all coping well enough here.  Hope to be playing again soon.  You all take care.

Gemmun sends loves and hearts, she's doing better, her mum's doing better, and I only nag her a little bit about taking care of herself.  ;)

Bloop!  I'm lazy, but I've been writing so much the last week, my hands are saying 'screw you'.  <3

Have I told you all how grand and marvelous you are? If not, then consider it said!!  I think of this place and HUNGER to be here and writing. To interact with you all and just...write. Just play. Just feel the love.  Even when I am NOT here I feel such a connection to you guys.  Like my own special world sitting in my back pocket (jeans, of course!) there to let my brain meld with yours in writing and plotting and twisting and.....etc.  So, in short, even when I am not here, I AM here.  And so I thank you all.

Mom is now in two months of radiation and oral chemo.  Then she will have two more months of intravenous chemo.  The time passes, she keeps planting her garden and picking fruit from her orchard of 80 trees. She just won't act like she is in cancer treatment.  It isn't denial...really it isn't. It's just that she doesn't have time for that defeatist crap like being afraid of what her body will do next. So she bloody well ignores it and just carries on like a soldier.  I have a pretty great mom, when all is said and done.  She just made apricot jam from her trees yesterday when she was supposed to be napping.  SicK? Nope, don't have time for that.

Thanks again for all your well wishes and support.  Love you guys.  I anticipate some free time coming up soon. I look forward to spending it here.

Thanks for the update <3 We're always here waiting for you!

My mother-in-law (battling a brain tumor for the last 16 years) has a similar attitude of your mom. It makes the world of difference! GO GEM'S PLAYER'S MOM!

She sounds amazing.
