Thanksgiving Chill

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

This Chill Space is dedicated to my sister.  She had surgery yesterday to remove uterine cancer.  It looks like the cancer hasn’t spread (pending biopsy results on the lymph nodes) and she will be completely cured after this surgery & chemo. This is what I am Thankful for today!

  1. My sister’s house is called Alligator Heights because there is a life-size paper mache alligator hanging in her kitchen (she made it with her husband).  I wish I could find a picture of it.  It’s really cool.    

  2. good news… blessings to you and yours, OTB.

    So I figured I should go get an original for your sister… my backyard ginger…

    to put this song, but for some reason it seems like it kinda fits, sorta. I don’t know why. Maybe?  The effects are nice, at least. Ok if I leave it here for awhile? 😉

    Good news for your sister truly a reason to be thankful. May her recovery be speedy.

     My niece was found to have stage 4 uterine cancer late this Summer that has metastasized to her pelvis, bones and stomach. She had limited access to medical care and no insurance, even in NY, that can be a problem. I only wish her mother had called me sooner, I might have been able to help.  

  4. And a Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Any one who has an alligator in the kitchen has some good chi going and a sense of humaor both of which bode well for recovery. Thanks for the chill spaces I have been using them and they work!

    will be in my heart and thoughts OTB.  Sending good vibes for her chemo treatments and biopsy to turn out good.

    to be thankful for.  your sister’s alligator sounds awesome.  i’d love to see it.  so strange – i have a whale hanging over my kitchen door (obviously not life size) and i had totally forgotten about it. i spend so much time looking at the computer monitor and am so often rushing out the door to class or looking down at the dog that i had completely spaced that it is there.  anyway, i love my whale and i think i would love your sister’s alligator.  i’ll be sending healing thoughts out to your sister and hoping for clean biopsy reports.  enjoy your turkey!

  5. I sincerely hope that your sister will fare well — we never know in this life — just have to keep truckin’!

    I wish you, your “sis” the very best!  

    One of the most important wisdoms I was ever told, when, I, myself, was undergoing some of life’s illnesses, was this:  “Worry about that over which you have control and don’t worry about that which you do not have control.”  So, fighting cancer kinda’ means that — you do what you can do/fight. and the rest, well, the rest is that over which we have no control.

    Best wishes to your sister and to you!  Hugs, Tahoe!
