I am pleased to announce that, at long last, I have completed my cancer treatments. At least for now, I'm alive and well. The past few months have been as a blur, but now that the mental fog of chemotherapy is clearing, everything looks good. I feel my health slowly returning to normal, and from a spiritual aspect, I am doing my best to make sure that I "get" the lessons that this experience has offered me.
To each of you who has taken the time to let me know that you have been thinking of me, may God bless you for your kindness. My mother taught me long ago to answer all kind gestures with a personal thank you. Little did she know that one day I would have a box full of over 1,000 notes of encouragement to acknowledge. I am truly overwhelmed by your outpouring of support. I cannot begin to express how much each card, cookie, flower, and phone call has meant to me. I never knew how important these could be until I needed them. They have given me strength and courage on my hardest days and laughs and smiles on my better ones. I wish I had the stamina to respond to each of you personally, but given that I am still recovering, this posting will have to suffice. If you have not received a personal thank you, the following is for you: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for every visible and audible expression of love and support. And what is more, thank you for your prayers, for I know that it is these, more than any medicine, that have brought me healing.
To those of you who have been waiting for my office to resume more regular hours, we will be returning to our usual schedule, within the next couple of weeks. I think I'm good for another 100,000 miles. ;)
With Sincere Appreciation,
