I'm Back

Well friends, sorry I've been away so long. I've been focusing my concentration on my sweet friend Michelle. She faced the devil and he backed off! 
Having survived a horrendous surgery, Michelle is home and recovering well.  She still has a hard row to hoe. Michelle is going to have to endure radiation AND chemo-therapy. Those are the big obvious things. There are niggling everyday things involved with the recovery from cancer that the rest of us barely consider. Michelle lost her nose; the surgery required to save her life, removed the middle of her face! Think about that!!!
It is so difficult for me to write about it. Imagine how difficult it is to have it happening to you.
To be continued...

Michelle is fortunate to have you for a friend, Darlene. Thank you for sharing her progress with us. It is a fine line between not wanting to invade her privacy and also really being concerned, and wanting to know how she is doing. I cannot begin to imagine what she is going through. I think about her every day, and remind myself how minor my "issues" are compared to what she is facing. The time will come when she will be recovered from this ordeal. She is in good hands. Please let us know if there is anything specific we can do for her. Love and Blessings, Sheree
