Thanks, ChanteyLass, it is so often you who pops our thread back to the top of the list. I wouldn't mind a little TLC at the moment...struggling with Diverticulosis & Large Vessel Vasculitis. A very limited, 'low residue' diet (soo boring!) with surgery just around the corner. Summer holiday in Greece cancelled...not a very happy bunny.

Rap, I have good doctors. By 'good' I mean they seem to know their stuff AND they listen to my concerns & answer my questions. I do what they tell me & thus far, it has worked for the pre-op routine. I am most troubled by the thought of a general anaesthetic.

Pete, not much composing at the moment, but I'm using the time to work with a friend who is developing an app to enable severely disabled folk create their own music; melody & harmony.

Chantey, you're right, not much fun around right now. By the end of the year, I should be in better shape.

Thank you All for writing...it means a great deal to me,
                                                                                        With Love,
                                                                                                       Nigel.

There is a cozy, soft chair and a cup of tea waiting for you on deck, Nigel, assuming the seas are relatively calm otherwise and the wind not too brisk. Otherwise, we will move it and you down into the cozy galley, near the song circle, so you can join in or simply relax and listen - whatever suits.

Great photos, Sandra. I only looked at the top set but will go back later. I did see one taken in Ballarat. I've been watching the Dr. Blake series which is set there.

My thoughts, too, are with Nigel, and I'm looking forward to his next post.

My thoughts are also with the people along our Gulf Coast, especially those in Texas. There's a new thread about Texas. I hope everyone can weather this storm. Hurricane Harvey sounds dreadful.

Thank you, all for your kind thoughts. My surgery was cancelled, early Friday morning; a cancer patient needed urgent attention. So, the waiting begins again...the hospital said they would endeavour to reschedule within the next week or two. I'm left thinking about the cancer patient...did all go to plan? Was this their first operation? Does the future now look brighter for them? I'll never know...just hope they are doing well.
          Thank you, once again,
                                                Much Love to everyone,

From: Janie
Date: 26 Aug 17 - 12:31 PM

Thinking today of a book I read many years ago by Joan Borysenko, "Guilt is the Teacher, Love is the Lesson."

I'm a natural born caregiver. It is in my DNA. One of the hardest things for many of us so constructed is to ask for support for ourselves when we need it to be able to continue to care for others.

From my life as a social worker I am acutely aware of how abundant the circumstances of my own life have always been, even during personally difficult times. You folks are part of that abundance.

So I feel guilty and narcissistic reaching out to say that I can use some good thoughts and support for myself right now. I feel like I ought to be asking for good thoughts and prayers for those I am supporting instead of support for myself, but I'm gonna take the 'lesson' seriously, and ask for what I need. Since I retired from clinic practice I no longer have the support and ear of colleagues and friends in the same field and who are much like me to lean on and help me keep perspective.

4 people I am very close to are facing end of life issues. They expect and need for me to be fully present with and for them, and that is what I want and need to do for them. But I am often feeling overwhelmed with sadness and fear that I am not equal to the task and will fail them, or somehow try to meet my own needs through them to their detriment. I'm spending way too much time questioning myself and my motives, or feeling like a young child lost in the wilderness.

This is a hard post for me to make. Because it is about me and not about the greater needs of these 4, dear people. Thing is, I know I am up to the work I have been given to do, but only if I reach out to ask for the support I need.

Thanks, Y'all.

Janie, you need to have those "me" moments. Otherwise you can't be there for others. Self-care is needed in order for us to help take care of others. It's not selfishness, it's survival. And you know this, dear one. So make the post and absorb the comfort and love to be found here.

And on a totally different tack, my mom handed off my share of my grandmother's ashes to me Tuesday AM at our biweekly breakfast out together. I will scatter them in beautiful places that I know she loved or would have loved to visit. The first place will be on the island that is an osprey nesting sanctuary at the park I work at, once the ospreys leave for the year. And some will go to Popham Beach, where I once took her. She hated having her picture taken, but she was so absorbed in beachcombing and watching the breakers roll in that she never noticed me taking half a dozen photos of her. She was so cute in her little blue rubber boots and her rain jacket. And other places will call her name in time. In the meantime, her urn is on my kitchen windowsill, with the birds, wildlife, and wildflowers in full view.

Sandra, by now I've seen those Harvey images and videos on tv, and they're horrifying. I always wonder if I was told to evacuate, would I? I'm pretty sure I would as quickly as possible. And if everything I owned was lost, I think I'd have a nervous breakdown!

Nigel, having prepared yourself emotionally for surgery only to have it postponed must be draining. I admire your concern for the cancer patient. When you have a new date, please let us know.

Janie, please take care of yourself. I'm glad you could tell us about your situation. You are aware of the help available to caregivers in your area. Use it and don't feel bad that you can't do everything without help. Of course, whatever help is available can't possibly be enough. Take all the advice and comfort you have given others and apply it to yourself. And stay in touch with us. Even if we can't be "there" for you, we're "here" for you.

Tami, I'm glad you have a plan for your grandmother's ashes. Because of your work, you must have several beautiful sites in mind. Indeed, it sounds like you do. She's lucky, your gran.
