another quick update

I keep wanting to write a big post but keep feeling not quite up to it.

Long story short - I am home, with  hospital bed in my living room downstairs.  I am now under hospice care, which means no further treatment.  However, This does not mean (no promises, mind you) that I'm dying tomorrow.   Right now there is a rush of visitors and I suspect this is what they believe -- if we don't see her RIGHT NOW they will miss their chance.  Whereas it could be as much as six months. No pain, just exhaustion.  Much exhaustion -- an outing upstairs is a really big deal and I didn't manage it today, despite the lure of a shower.

Anyway, that's where we are.  I am still trying to wrap my head around what's happening.  One of these days, I promise, a real post.

write us lots of little posts! eventually they all add up. nobody's counting. :-)

I hope it is a comfortable hospital bed and that you don't get sandwiched in it due to someone being inept with the controls.

I am glad there is no pain! And I am glad to hear from you. And I have been thinking from you. And I love you.

I'm thinking about you a lot, dude, for whatever that's worth :) Scotchy sends HUGS, and I am always around on messenger or email if you need anyone to talk to. Text, too, if you want my cell!

Don't feel obligated to write a long post, if short ones are what you're up to thats just what we want. Positive thoughts, best wishes, and prayers for you! *offers*

Do you want fanarts? Or anything? I'll take a request! Let me know soonish (as in preferably before school starts in a month, but even after that would be fine ;-)

*has nothing else to offer*

it's good to visit the sick not make them feel worried and freak them out. Not cool.

Praying with all my heart for you Phillia! Miss you LOADS and am glad to have this update from you!

You're our champion! *parades around flag* I mean it!!

*sending you love and energy*

I know, I appologize for being cranky (I had read a few of your posts all at once and responded in this one)

I know she's doing her best. Just know that ET won't be lost, we're all rooting for you! 100%

So glad you're home--and I'm wishing you get-up-the-stairs-strength because I'm sure a shower would feel wonderful to you.

By the way, I'm finally getting a chance to read Blink and Caution (things got in the way when I tried to start it before). I'm so glad you sent it to me. It's not totally my cup of tea, but the fantastic writing is giving me tons of food for thought. I'm going to donate it to our new town library when I'm done. They have a nearly empty YA section.

Major hugs from me and Brian and Fox and Tillie (the kitties) and Gryphon and Jackson (the little hounds) and Zeus (the old hound). I'm glad you're home and in no pain. I hope it stays that way. I miss you and love you! Sending energy your way!

I almost stopped by your house the other day and I had no idea you were in it! I went to the clinic at Mt Auburn for a stupid problem and took the bus past your street on the way home. Now that I know I can eventually get to your house by bus, I'll have to come visit. Also getting to Harvard is not quite as scary as I thought.

It's good to hear from you whatever length the post. I hope the exhaustion improves and the kitties come sit on you downstairs even if you can't get upstairs.

Look out for the package :-)
