  • Kathleen lost her fight today...

    Today my wonderfully beautiful big sis lost her battle with breast cancer. She was diagnosed five years ago with stage 3b inflammatory breast cancer. She surprised her doctors at how long she fought but not her family. We knew she was a fighter.

    There will be two services, one in Fla where she lived and one in Jersey. I won't have to get on a plane right away which is good because I'm still fighting (that which Joe can't call C Diff until a doctor deems it so lol) this "thing" but submitted a sample so that the doctors might get me started on Vanco. The Flagyl didn't cut it.

    Anywho, I want to thank everyone who had given prayers and thoughts before and ask for a few more for my family. My Dad's heart, back, knee etc aren't the greatest and my sis and niece are absolutely distraught. I'm trying to keep perspective because one of my good friend's mom died of a heart attack 5 years ago and they never had a chance to say goodbye, at least I did.

    And the truth shall set you free.

          "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."
