"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Blanca,

Like many who said your Sister is not suffering and as she said " I can't do this", she was mercifully saved from the ravages of cancer and chemo ...

Take comfort in knowing the she "lives" in your thoughts and is a part of who you are....

Much love,,,,




Since I've given up all hope, I feel much better

Thanks everyone, it has been so hard. I am so GRATEFUL that she did not do the chemo. Her oncologist called me yesterday, he was upset. Because she went to emergency, he was not told of her death until yesterday. Goof ups in the system.

I hated the way UCSD handled Maureen's ordeal and recommended they streamline the diagnosis and subsequent plan of action. It was awful, just awful. The right hand did not know what the left hand was doing. Made a difficult situation a million times harder.

Ahhhh the memories! She was the one who came to Baja at every possible minute she could! You know she was special, right? She planned on retiring in La Paz. She was so crazy and crazy fun.

Thanks again my online family! Go out and make it a great day!

That's rough. Here we were talking about charts that showed the survival rates and she didn't even make it to chemo.

It's great to see the Nomad community coming together in such a positive way rather than the endless bickering.
