Rapparee, thank you for telling us.

Gnu posted to Jane's Rainbow more than once, if not frequently.

This is the first I had heard of his mother's passing,
although a post to this thread
indicated that his mother and he had conferred with the physicians,
and decided that his mother would rather face
the final stages of her life at home.
So he had let us know
that he was on his own Via Dolorosa.

Surely he has earned his reward in heaven
for caring for his mother.
Circle the wagons, everybody.

Well...my youngest nephew, a 1LT in Marine Reserves, has been ordered to up to a year's deployment in Tblisi. While an officer who deals with hearing, water supply, sewage, and other utilities he's still a combat engineer. The Georgia Deployment Program lost three Marine reservists in Afghanistan earlier this year.

Neither his father (who got the news today as his birthday present, I guess), his mother, and me are unworried.

I hadn't heard from wysiwyg for a while, and when looking her up on Facebook learned that she is recovering in a hospital now, moving to rehab late next week. That post was from her husband, pointing people to updates from a friend on her Facebook page. Sounds like a stroke. If you're a friend of hers on Facebook look for updates posted by her friend Sabrina.

Tomorrow we are hosting a...wake? celebration of life? what?...at our house for a friend who died of head injuries while we were in Ireland. Here because he just "wasn't a churchy type."

He got a cup of coffee, told his wife he'd see her downstairs, she heard a heavy thud, he never regained consciousness....

Well, we're happy to do what we can. It's not something you refuse if asked; folks are coming from literally from thousands of miles away. Buck was a good one and will be sorely missed.

Oh my goodness it is October and the summer has sped by, I have just popped by to catch up,sending love to everyone here and good health and happiness.
Thank you kereboxu for asking about my daughter. She has had 7 chemotherapy treatments, now 8 weekly,and the latest MRI scan shows an improvement so the treatments will continue.I am amazed and so proud of her, so stoic,never complains, looks after her two gogeous daughters, runs her husbands business and is just starting year 2 of British Signing Language with her eldest daughter who is hearing impaired.I tried to learn the alphabet, so difficalt.
Billy had a setback while we were away last month,his type 2 diabetes went haywire,however,reluctantly,he has started insulin injections and his count is coming down.Meanwhile his leukemia is still in remission ,he sees his consultant again in a few weeks.
As for me I am fine,still working 4 mornings a week with my lovely clients, they keep me young!!Lots of afternoons reading at the beach hut, how lucky am I to live in such a beautiful place.
Sending love

Just dropped in and caught that post. I won't ask for grief support just now, but cross some fingers for me. I ventured onto Silver Singles site recently. After a bit one woman and I found ourselves focusing in. We progressed to email where it's easier to flow a little more, and have been on the phone regularly for a while now. Sunday we drive a little to a halfway point for a first face to face. We've already covered a lot of ground; I know that she's a very intelligent, thoughtful person, the pictures are up to date, our thinking on a lot of basics is very compatible, and we communicate with warmth and humor. I should say cross some fingers for US: that at minimum we come out glad to have met, and that we both make right decisions beyond that.

This is the beginning of a difficult season of the calendar year.
For some reason
many of us have sustained bereavements or crises
in autumn and going into the year-end holiday season.

So this is a sensitive time with difficult "anniversaries" triggering intense emotions and distracting memories.

The Rainbow is needed now more than at most times.

A few thoughts FWIW.

I'm sure Bobert appreciates all the good thoughts and prayers over his wife's health situation and his long and painful history with cancer-- he lost his first wife to it.

I would like to point out though that he always speaks of her as THE P-Vine,and for those of us who pray, it matters to get the name right.

Also, Bobert (as Dharmabum has done) has chosen Facebook as his live platform from which to provide health updates and requests for support. News here will tend to be out of date, as a result. There have been some hopeful updates at FB, but it's undeniably a scary and dangerous time, regardless.

My own health is dodgy enough nowadays that I no longer run the Mudcat Prayer Chain which used to operate very actively in email. In those days, Mudcat had to work very hard to keep the peace around issues of spirituality. People heading those efforts were known and respected members with experience in such matters IRL.

In this work, it's so important to keep boundaries in mind, and check with folks going through troubles about what's OK to post-- for example I know the P-Vine's real first name, but I use Bobert's name for her here-- because he does.

We've lost so many dearly loved members here, and some quite recently, that I think it serves the community best when we can provide accurate information, since any info is likely to really worry a lot of folks. Or to allude to troubles just very generally, when it's not our own troubles we're posting about. These recent, hopeful FB comments from Bobert, due to the nature of the FB medium, were buried in Comments on Comments-- easy to miss. Yet it's still where the actual updates are.

Thanks, Kerb and all; The eye has been fine since the first couple of days of steroids after the initial abrupt symptoms. Monday I had a couple of docs each shine 4 or 5 k watts in my eyes while a herd of others stood by and discussed, and no one saw need for further treatment. Incidental goofy factoid: I had had a mention by phone of the need to have the STAPLES from my biopsy removed while there. I was sure I would feel staples, and that there was little or no chance that staples would be used for the incision I had, but figured it was a slip of the tongue and I needed sutures removed. I had soluble sutures, as I should have suspected all along, and I think they were gone completely by Tuesday.

Dean, you need to get checked for Giant Cell Arteritis, GCA for short. Along with the temporal arterial biopsy, ultrasound arterial scanning is increasingly relied upon. Check out the work of Prof. B. Dasgupta. He is the world authority. If GCA is diagnosed, please do all you can to get the steroid treatment started asap. I've been down this rocky road myself & your post has a familiar ring to it. Time is of the essence.

Just retourned home on th 8th from a very enjoyable 14 day group tour all over Western Europe. Sat down for a bit to catch up on computer. Suddenly very tender around one eye; looked in the mirror and it looked about like a chicken about to hatch. Local ER sent me a few miles to one with more relevant docs. Multiple consultations. just had a biopsy of the temporal artery. Have had some intervenous steroids which have calmed things down, but they all agree they needed to check for an inflammatory condition which might call for aggressive treatment to keep my vision safe. Im not panicking, but Im concerned.
