Such a wild roller coaster ride. It is one thing to know you or a dearly beloved is bound to die much sooner rather than much later. But there is no way to know, with cancer, just how near or how far away the crossing of the bar may be. Relish each day, embracing both the joy of the present and the love you share, and the fear and anticipatory grief, but live in the present. Let Jane lead the way and set the tone. Reminisce? Yes. Look to the future and what it may hold? Yes. Live in the precious present? Always. Let the present be exquisitely sweet.

Nigel. I recently went thru such trauma. Not with someone so close as you are experiencing so I can't imagine your despair. The only words I can offer are these. Love her. Accept the future now, all the while hoping for a miracle, as we must. Talk with her of good things of the past, whatever those could be (only you can know of them) and how they matter to you and to those she loves. Most importantly, reinforce the good things of the past to provide the solace of knowing it was ALL worthwhile... EVERY minute of it.

I'll stop there. I am no priest and I certainly ain't no saint. Just an ordinary guy who wishes he could shoulder some of your burden and knows he can't.

I ain't religious much at all needer, but... God Bless.

Tried to write something cogent this morning, there are so many wonderful posts, full of love, compassion & music...my tears got in the way. So moved by the presence of all You Good People & so horrified & scared by what Jane showed me yesterday. She has a tumour the shape of a small American football on her right hip. It was all I could do to stop myself from exclaiming out loud. I settled for a muted OMG. X-ray, scan results tomorrow, but she has received no chemotherapy since December because of her weight loss & the administration of steroids. Ann & I are haunted by the thought of what further damage the unchecked cancer could be perpetrating. The hip tumour may well be partial evidence; who knows? What to do, what to do?
                With Love to You All,
                                                Nigel & Ann.

Just checking in to let you all know that Ann & I are ok, but we're becoming increasingly concerned about Jane. The cancer has made her bones so brittle that she may well have broken her hip. She's been back in hospital this week. I'll know more after the weekend. Ann's been with her all week, I've been at home because of my own appointments. There is a building momentum with Jane's state of health of a kind that is starting to make us deeply anxious. Methinks that spot on the horizon is closer than we thought.

I heard a song on the TV program, "Judging Amy," many years ago that just struck me hard with a combination of tune and lyrics. I like the writer, Peter Himmelman, who did all the music for the show. It took him years to record it and it finally hit YouTube.

The song's name is "The Best Kind of Answer." Why am I posting this stuff here? Because there is something in the lyric that speaks to me about the transcendency of real love......that love is all powerful and can heal our pain and transcend words. This isn't to say I don't like to say the word. On the contrary! But it's like knowing that people in this group love each other and their families.
The kind of love that you know is there when you just look into the eyes of someone. Nigel and Ann......Is there any doubt that Jane knows how much you care just by looking at the two of you? Wendy? Know what I mean? I know Janie does.....and Maeve though none of us have met.

The song says the best kind of love can wash away pain, and the best kind of answer has no sound.   I believe that......I really do. Enjoy.

The Best Kind of Answer

Let me report that the UP campaign has met with moderate success!!! I was overjoyed to find that I maintained the same number from last week. When you have been going down pretty regularly that's damn good. We'll see where we are next week and continue on from there. Throw in the occasional UP thought if you get a chance and I thank you for all the ones given last week that seemed to help!!!

Nigel, tell Jane I know something of what she feels.   I love to cook and those times over the past years when things have been bad, I never felt right or myself again until I was cooking. It brings on the feeling of normalcy and usefulness like nothing else for me. Everyone has something different I suppose but I can really identify with Jane in the kitchen.   

Sending a giant cast iron soup kettle of great thoughts Jane's way today!

I guess I've been taking a bit of a back seat over the past few days...been concentrating on composing. Apart from the fact that it's something I enjoy immensely, the 'creative process' has helped lift the severe depressive episodes I have been experiencing over the last month or so. What is also pleasing is to read your posts, safe in the knowledge that our Thread is in good hands.
       So we have information about the snow storm in America & Canada; beautiful words from a beautiful song (would it be considered a hymn?)...more folks in need of our thoughts & prayers...interesting personal anecdotes & a cheery sprinkling of humour. Nourishment for the Heart & Mind.
       Jane is 'between treatments'. She has finished with the radiotherapy, but can't resume chemo for another couple of weeks. She remains cheerful, but needs plenty of timeouts to rest. Jane is trying to set herself one, achievable task, job, a pleasurable, personal moment. One special thing for each day. So far, she has not missed a day. She is a wiz in the kitchen, so that's where she often ends up, but what the hell, her sense of satisfaction & achievement is worth it's weight in gold. Jane has even gone out of her way to make (and buy) diabetic friendly food, just for me. With everything she has on her mind, she still makes time for others. I love her so much.
      Keep warm, stay safe,
                                       With Love,
                                                      Nigel & Ann.

Hello, all. Here in New Hampshire it was just a blizzard out of the good old days. We didn't even lose power! Alouette and I and a few of our friends attended the village church service this morning, at the request of a dear woman celebrating her 90 th birthday today. All she wanted for her birthday was for the five of us to sing a sweet song we do called "Here in this place" by Peter Fischmann, about the beauty of rural New England in February. The chorus goes:

Here in this place, I have all I ever wanted.
Here in this place, I have everything I need.
I have love, I have beauty, I have grace,
Here in this place.

I am grateful that I can sing this song with a full heart- every word is true. May it be true for us all.
