It was just a diabetes  issue.  I 've had it for 10 years and managed it with diet and exercise.  Now it needs a bit more.  

Ann's issue is far more compelling.

WHERE IS JOE?

He hasn't posted since the 19th?
In the meantime, we will have to brace ourselves for Ann's news.  Good news travels fast.  Bad news slow.

Good question Alice.  Joe's absence is suspicious. 
Hope Ann is recovering. 

As for news traveling fast, I thought it was the opposite.  Bad news traveling fast.

I'm not calling it bad news, Alice.  It was expected. Susan went wifh me to my meeting with the oncology team. We both felt that they were more positive than we had expected.  It looks like they will begin with targeted radiation treatments to get rid of the two remaining lesions in my cerrebellum. They don't expect any side effects. Once that is done I will begin chemo. That will take longer and won't be much fun, but even there, I will have a week of mostly being very tired becore the wbite cell count starts the typical symptoms, the a week of ceeling normal before the sequence begins again. They say a minimum of three of those sequences before any improvement could show up, after which we will just have to see.  Eventually, a hysterectomy, but that will be the last thing, not right away, and I'm very glad about that.  Meantime, my job will be to stay positive, so let's not talk about bad news, OK?

Let's bope we hear from Joe soon.

Annie

Annie, 

Thank you and bless your heart.  You will feel so much better after the hysterectomy--that is truly something to look forward to.

This is much better news than I expected.  You can and will get over this.

Great plan.  Brain surgery is draining.  A few months from now, you won't  know yourself.
