I know many people hold you in their thoughts and prayers Zinnie. Thought it would be nice for us all to have one special place to post our well wishes to you.

(((((((((((((( Zinnie ))))))))))))))

I think you are a wonderful person and role model. You have given your strength, caring, and advice to many here. Wish more people were like you. The World would be a better place. You have so many great qualities. I admire your inner strength, common sense, intellect, and the way you handle yourself. Wish I were your neighborhood sometimes... but thinking upon this thought, I realize I am. You are a World traveller, and I live on this World (hehe), so I must be your neighbor at least part of the time. ;o}

Even the strongest among us need love and support, and can get tired. I wanted to invite you back to our swing set under that huge shade tree. To sip some lemonade and munch on some cookies ~ to escape your troubles and pain for a little bit. Our little 10 minute get-a-way. It, and I, are here whenever you need. We can swing quietly listening to the birds chirping and the breeze blowing on our wind chimes, or you can share whatever thoughts you want with me. I know I don't have all the answers, but knowing that someone is willing to listen & cares can lighten the load. Just taking a break away to have some peace & quiet for a few minutes can do so much good as well. So, if you want to talk, we can, or if you want to just let your mind and spirit enjoy a quiet respite for a little bit, we can do that too. I know I visit this place once in while all on my own & it is still a pretty terrific spot. Just wanted to remind you it is here should you need it.

Sending you many, many, well wishes, strength, prayers and love.... for both you and Lisa.

(((((((((((( Zinnie )))))))))))))))
((((((((((((( Lisa ))))))))))))))))

Love,
Juanita

Thanks Juanita,

This is a sweet thought and very much appreciated - please know and never doubt that.

However, right now I am absolutely exhausted. We just now arrived back in Dallas and I am in the midst of checking too many e-mails to count - with the most pressing being the need to update many in the family regarding Lisa and the other fact that I am not only tired; but, now being faced with having to make a decision regarding yet another not one, but two surgeries in short order. Top it all off with my own pain which is physical, the mental and emotional exhaustion of dealing with my own health issues and then the crippling exhaustion of dealing with Lisa once again in the hospital for again an unknown amount of time.

I will write more later - and again, I thank you for thinking of me and putting this thread out here for me. All who wish to are morethan welcome to stop by of course... and this thread it NOT about me - but, is about all of us as we walk through this journey we call life.

Love to all,

Z.

You are correct, of course 🙂 My bad. Everyone is indeed welcome, I should have thought the thread title a little better. Anyone in need of a little mental or emotional get-a-way is certainly welcome in to join. There are hammocks a plenty.
Thought I'd splurge a little today. In addition to the lemonade and cookies, I have Sangria and a wonderful salad.

Leaving my troubles behind for a few moments & hanging here...

***********

Leaving at the gate those thoughts of the days when one income was enough to not only sustain a household, but was enough to be able to set some aside in a savings account and pay for vacations. LOL. "Happy Days" What are those anymore? When did life change so? What is a savings account?

I long for a time when one paycheck is enough to sustain a family in a decent and comfortable style. I wish that it weren't necessary to have a p/t job on top of a f/t job to make ends meet.

Rubbing my temples. Money won't be had here under this tree, but I'm soothing my financial troubles away for a few minutes. This place doesn't cost me anything & I can afford that. 🙂 Keep telling myself my troubles are few and minimal compared to others.

**********

I will set up a nice buffet for anyone who wants to come here, take a load off, relax and join in.

Hi Everyone, I was just checking to see if there was any word from Z yet. I know, Z, you may be in the hospital by now. Thoughts and prayers go with you. ((((Z)))) Thankyou, Juanita. I think this thread was very thoughtful of you. Love and Hugs!

Hi all,

I'm not in the hospital as of yet, the Dr. is "waiting" for me to tell him when I will be ready to have this done as I have "a lot on my plate." Well, that is what he said. To me? It still sounds like another surgery to be followed with another one which I'm not looking forward to.

Lisa is doing well - better than expected actually, and aside from me embarrassing myself by having to leap up in the middle of a dinner tonight to run to the restroom (have I mentioned I HATE anti-cancer meds?) and some pelvic pain - I'm hanging in there.

Z.

Good to hear you are hangin in there. I seriously doubt your friends bein so shallow as to be upset that you had to excuse yourself. I know how overly selfconscious a person can beat their own selves.

I am so thankful that Lisa is doin well. Do take care of yourself coz nobody else can as well as one's self. lol. (that was so hypocritical of me.)

(((( Z ))))

I have more than once had to excuse myself quickly to journey to the restroom... Nothing wrong with that & I am confident there is not one single person alive who hasn't had a similar thing happen. Your dinner companion(s) didn't mind, I'm sure.

Glad to hear Lisa is doing better than expected. She is a strong lady, and one who, I am sure, will amaze the Doctors.

Surgery is never any fun, but at least the prospect of less pain afterwards is something to look forward to. I recall a surgery you had almost a year & a half ago, how much better you felt afterwards... as if a great weight had been lifted from you. I shall pray that you feel this much better again this time as well.

All my best to you & Lisa, and both your families.

Juanita

Hi Mama and all,

I have not had time nor the energy to be on much... I go to the Dr. again tomorrow to find out more about the plan for surgery. I'm afraid it is no longer optional as it is very painful to sit now.

I will keep you posted, and I thank all of you for your concern.

Love,

Z.

Thanks all. I will be having the first surgery this Thursday, and the next one on July 10th. I have been told that I have four tumors in the inside of the vaginal wall with the largest being about the size of a cherry tomato. The Dr. then says "hum, no wonder you claim to be in such pain!"

I hate to be crass but, I did wonder how he would feel if I were to pull his lower lip over his head and say "hey, you try and live your life - working, living, surviving... like that - with NO pain medication (because my ass of a specialist Dr. thinks I happen to like my pain meds too much) - and tell me... so - how are you doing today?" At least he finally admited "gee, guess you are needing pain medication for a reason!" Considering the fact that I told him I do not like being "fuzzy" - that should have been the clue there that I'm not taking pills to take pills.

GAH!
