Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
From: Nigel Paterson
Date: 12 Aug 12 - 06:55 AM

Jane continues to enjoy her holiday...plenty of sun, sea, sand & r&r.
       Rather selfishly, I'm more concerned at the moment with my own health. I was diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatica some years back now & combined with the more recent diagnosis of Diabetes, it transpires the chance of me having a stroke or heart attack has been increased by a significant factor. I've just had a 24 hr. ECG (wired up to a portable mini-computer), this to be followed soon by an Echocardiogram. To be perfectly frank, I feel quite scared. I know this is counterproductive, but it's a very difficult emotion to get control of.
             Much Love to You all,
                                              Nigel ( My beloved Ann's here of course, but this post feels very singular & personal) xxxxx

Coffee for me, tea for Ann please Wendy! Very pleased to hear that Billy's treatment is going well. Some of our friends are volunteers at the Olympics. From what they've told us, they've had the best of times too. Ann & I spent a day at the Greece Olympics in 2004...the volunteers there were fabulous too...they helped in so many ways & as you say, their smiles were permanently etched on their faces!
                                                    No sugar for either of us, thanks,

Morning Nigel,

Must agree with you about the Olympic spirit, however we had a brilliant time at Greenwich watching the dressage,and everyone was cheering all the riders from all the countries and all the competitors were supporting each other so maybe the spirit of the Games is still there but the TV pundits are not portraying it very well? Must say well done to all the volunteers who are the most happy smiley people I have ever seen!Hope you and Ann enjoy your day at the Paralympics, it will be a great day out.

Billy had his second day of treatment on Monday and now on the chemo tablets till Friday and so far he says he feels good, so fingers crossed.

I do hope Jane and family have a wonderful holiday,
Thought I might make a pot of coffee, anyone like to join me,
Wendy x

I posted the following on FB yesterday. I'm reposting it here in the hopes it might stimulate a more informed debate!
       " I've been enjoying watching The Olympics on TV very much & rejoice in the ongoing successes of Team GB, but I've just had a look at the Olympic Creed: "The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well." We seem to have moved far, far away from those noble thoughts."

         I had a text from Jane in Turkey...she's doing just fine.
         With Love,
                        Nigel & Ann

          Jane is well enough to take a holiday, so she & her Family have flown off to Turkey for a couple of weeks. Ann & I remain glued to the TV, watching the Olympics. For the first time, Team GB are actually winning some medals!

Thank you very much, Wendy & Pete. You've both mentioned places I haven't visited in years & brought back some happy memories. Ann & I will also be spending a day at the Olympics. We managed to get tickets for a day at the Paralympics in September.
       Felt happy & slightly depressed yesterday. Received my notification from the Pensions people, so now I know what my State Pension will be worth.....extra money in the bank (Happy)...fast approaching sixty-fifth birthday (Slightly depressed!)

Hey, Nigel, you're back. I apologize for missing your special day with Ann--story of my life. Happy Anniversary.

Test results: oh, yeah. Hurry up and wait.

As for Team GB, you have the best athletes in given categories that your countries can produce, so no matter how they show in the medals, they'll have competed and it doesn't get better than that. Since the summer olympics began in the late 1800s in Athens ( 1896 ? ), Canada has won a total of 58 gold medals. Win or lose, we always welcome the athletes home. By comparison, the USA has won 930 golds in that time and the UK 206. I haven't been watching this olympic because of the TV thing. It isn't plugged in.

I feel it deep inside that Jane's results will be good once again. Her outlook is positive and that's the sides of yourselves Ann and you show her. Winning teams are winning teams, buddy. Olympics or life.

Thank you all for your best wishes. We will have to wait until the Olympics are finished before we can 'encore' the meal...the trains we need pass right through Stratford, 'Olympic Central'.
    I like the idea of a 'South Seas' theme in my cabin, kat. It would compensate for the erratic UK weather!
   Great idea Sandra...fully support that one.
   Beautiful poem Pete. It really sums up our relationship.
   Jane's health remains stable. She has her next set of scans towards the end of August. It's always quite tense as these times get ever closer & even tenser waiting for the results.
   Ann & I are currently overdosing, watching the Olympics on TV. Team GB has not got off to the best of starts...hoping that things improve. Don't forget, It's the taking part that's more important than winning. That saying always seems to apply more to British athletes than almost anyone else, or am I being overly cynical?
                        Much Love to You All,
                                                         Nigel & Ann.

Just celebrated our Wedding Anniversary. Everything on the day went well up until lunch. We had literally finished our first course (in a very pleasant restaurant in central London) & my phone rings. Our burglar alarm has been activated & we must return home immediately. We have keyholders but they couldn't be contacted. It took an hour to get home...one of the most anxiety-provoking hours I can remember! Opening the front door & having a good look around, nothing seems to be amiss. Speak to the security company & reset the alarm. A short while later, my neighbour makes contact & admits that it was probably him who set off the alarm. Turns out he was using a high-pressure hose to clean down his brickwork & his aim strayed to include some of our windows, thereby tripping the alarm. Our Special Day was spoiled big-time, but we intend to 'encore' the meal in every detail...hopefully this time, making it to the 'final curtain'! Some things you just can't plan for!
          Hope Life is treating you kindly,
                           With Love,

Good news, good Music...much has been & is, happening since I last posted. I mentioned earlier about 'our thread'. I mean that unequivocally. The course that wittingly or unwittingly we have set has lead us to several new & unexpected harbours, allowing us to take on board new crew members. I think it was Wendy who said she felt safe here...Ann & I do too.
       There is one question to which a satisfactory answer will never be forthcoming:" How many other people are there who read/have read this thread; perhaps finding help & comfort along the way, choose not to post. I want them to know that they are equally welcome here nonetheless.

So many people to pray for! It is a good thing that so many more people are doing the praying.

And by praying I don't necessarily mean down on the knees, hands clasped or palms touching, though of course that is fine. I also mean turning one's thoughts throughout the day to those who need them.

What a fine crew! All hands on deck!

I think he had a great voice, too.
Google Translate's version is a little more awkward than this from Bing Translator's. It makes sense if you shift the meanings slightly. "Pescar" is "to fish", I believe.

To play a kite a chalk white,
the old wall was nothing
to smile a lie
to be great.

You grow up, you learn
you grow up, you will be taken
you grow up, you'll love it.

It was a nothing a green field
a run and then a pescar on the River
It was a nothing to smile
a lie to be great.

You grow up, you learn
you grow up, you will be taken
you grow up, you'll love
regret will remain
by that age, of that age.

You grow up, learn,
you grow up, you will be taken
you grow up, you'll love
You grow up, learn,
you grow up, you come
you grow up, you'll love
you grow up, you learn.

Pete, I was away when you had your birthday...a very belated Happy Birthday. A 'different' kind of birthday, following the death of your Mother, but your memories of her could form the basis of a special celebration, even so. I'm heartened to see that you are planning some gigs...there'll be 'something extra' now in the way you perform your songs.
      Kat, Janie gets it right every time doesn't she?
      Janie, your use of the word: 'agape' resonated strongly with me. I c&p'd this from Wikipedia:
" [aˈɣapi]) is one of the Koine Greek words translated into English as love, one which became particularly appropriated in Christian theology as the love of God or Christ for humankind. In the New Testament, it refers to the covenant love of God for humans, as well as the human reciprocal love for God; the term necessarily extends to the love of oneŐs fellow man. Many have thought that this word represents divine, unconditional, self-sacrificing, active, volitional, and thoughtful love. Although the word does not have specific religious connotation, the word has been used by a variety of contemporary and ancient sources, including Biblical authors and Christian authors...." Your contributions add an intellectual polish to our ('our' is significant) thread, for which we are sincerely grateful.
      Jane & her Family return to the UK today for good (There have been a few false alarms regarding the 'final return'). She will undoubtedly return for holidays to see her friends, all being well. Her cancer remains 'in stasis'...long may it remain so. She has recently discovered Matcha Green Tea & speaks very highly of it's beneficial effects to her overall demeanour. Not sure whether her oncologist is aware of this, but she has more energy & drive than we've seen for months. Impossible to tell whether it's the new medication or the Matcha Tea (or both!). What is important is that she feels well & she's living her life in much the same way as before her diagnosis, back in January. We just wish that all traces of the cancer could be removed, restoring her health completely & absolutely.
       Much to read here today & on which to reflect,
       With Love to You All,
                                     Nigel & Ann.

Billy, Linda, Ben, Connie, Wendy and so many others, focusing thoughts and good intentions on you.

My family knows first hand how meaningful and supportive is the knowledge that people who are essentially strangers are praying, focusing, caring with attention and intention.

Call it agape. Call it loving-kindness. Call it unconditional positive regard.

It takes nothing away from the support of those who know, love and/or are personally involved by virtue of family or 3-D community to say that mojo of the Mudcat ilk is in a separate and powerfully sustaining category.

Wendy, Jane's first couple of sessions of chemo were by far the most unpleasant. She was scheduled for six sessions, but in the end, had four, so there is always a possibility that your Billy might not need all six too. Waiting for the blood test results can be something of a nerve-strecher, but, as you say, fingers crossed & you get the all-clear for Norfolk. Norfolk plus some sunshine will do both of you a power of good!
                With Love,
                               Nigel & Ann.

Dear Kat,
sending love to your friend Connie and her children,I am sure the wise crew on this ship will bring her comfort and hold her in their thoughts and prayers.I have gained so much from reading this thread and thank Nigel so much for bringing us all together.
Billy started his chemotherapy a week ago , he had a few setbacks on the first two days but had wonderful staff at the hospital who were not only careing for him but looked after me sitting with him!He ran a fever on Wednesday and was admitted to the hospital , but came home again on Friday.
This week he feels much better and we hope to be able to go away to Norfolk for the weekend, so fingers crossed that the blood tests tomorrow are positive and he gets the Dr's agreement to go away.
So 1 treatment done, 5 to go!!
love to all the crew,
Wendy

It certainly puts your own life into perspective when you read about folk like Connie, her children & all they are having to endure. Like gnu, I'm struggling for words that might bring even the slightest crumb of comfort. This is a perfect example of what Banjoman mentioned above...how the thread has developed into something I could never have envisaged. The sense of Community is palpable. I'm sure Kat will do whatever is necessary to bring Connie & her Family aboard. We have unlimited accommodation & an accumulation of wisdom, love, humour, experience & pragmatic common sense to ease the most burdensome of life's loads.
       To all of you who continue sailing with us, thank you, thank you, thank you.
       With Love,
                      Nigel & Ann.
                      xxxxxxxxxx
