Addie,

In the calm is the strength ...

With you in these moments, of great need.

Heartfelt,
Margi.

Thank you Andy. Winthrop is going to send me one tranquilizer. Enough to get me calmed down and under control. I hate taking them. But I really need one this time. And the building Aide is going to be checking in on me during the day. I am concerned that my BP will be too high for my surgery tomorrow. And then there is the stress on my heart. So I need to have someone check in on me and to get myself calmed down.

This event in my life is almost as bad as when my youngest daughter died. I think I handled that better than I am doing with this. But then I was in shock. And a lot younger. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. It means a lot to know that there are people who care.

Addie, I am glad you are getting a sedative, and even more glad that you will have someone checking in on you. I wish we could all be there to love and protect you, but then your house would be pretty full .

This is your first born, your daughter and your own health isn't the greatest. You are doing great under those circumstances. Just know that your daughter is being lifted up by thoughts and prayers from all over the world, as are you.

Winthrop sent me three Lorazapams. They sure work. I am feeling much better and I am going to take a nap. When I wake up she may be out of surgery. Thank you for you hugs and caring. Thank you everyone. The pill is working. I am off to sleep.

I found it, it was at Henley Beach...so funny

Here is the story

They were able to remove most of the tumor. It is cancerous. She can talk and move her legs and arms. Right now she is in the ICU and will be there for at least 24 hours. I will be going in to see her Thursday. My youngest son will go in tomorrow to talk to her doctors.

I am still groggy from the pill. That dang thing is so tiny, But it sure is powerful. Did you know that teeny pill has caused my keyboard to put extra rows in. I keep having to find the right key to hit. I almost didn't see it and thought they sent me an empty card and forgot to put the pills in it. They sent me three. I only asked for one. They are 0.05 MG. I take it that is supposed to be a low dose. This is why I never take them. That and sleeping pills. I don't like mind altering drugs. It has been at least five years since I took one of these. And it has been decades since I took a sleeping pill. I'd make a lousy drug addict.

I need to sleep this pill off. My speech is slurry and I need to get into the shower. But I have to wait until this pill wears off. I am seeing double and I won't know which tub to get into. Thank you all for your support and prayers. Now comes the fight of her life to get rid of the cancer that is left. But we have been through this before when her husband had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was an advanced Stage 4 when they found his cancer and gave him one month to live. That was more than six years ago. He is still here and still in remission.

So glad that they were able to remove the tumor. Sorry to hear it was malignant. I trust they got clear margins.

Sit down and wait for the pill to wear off. Now is NOT the time for you to fall or entertain your neighbours with a midnight ambulance run.

{{{HUGS}}}

PS--as an oncologist once told me, no one knows enough [about cancerous tumors] to be a pessimist. Think positive.

Thank you. They need some entertainment. And I do seem to be the chairwoman of the entertainment committee. One of these days I am going to get on that gurney nekked as a jay bird and let them see it all. That will keep the gossip mill going for a long time. One time I had a small heart attack and went out to the hospital with my audience watching. Came home three days later, got on my scooter, went down to the first floor. My heart started racing really hard. Had to ask the manager to call 911. Went right back into the hospital. I didn't have enough blood and stayed another night while they pumped two pints of blood into me. I just love that gurney. So comfortable to be on. Nap time again.

You go naked as jay bird, you might give one of the male residents a heart attack! Sleep well.
