Default sad news

Just wanted to give an update.

Some of you know that my husband was diagnosed with an incurable cancer (a type of plasma cell leukemia) just over 19 months ago. The bone marrow transplant (his own stem cells) that was done in March 2008 failed and the cancer returned. He's been undergoing various chemo regimes in order to prepare for a donor transplant.

He lost his battle, unexpectedly, in the wee small hours of last week.. Tuesday, May 19th. In many ways, it is a blessing, as he went suddenly.. a massive hemorrhage in his brain. He has been spared the long drawn out wasting and incredible pain that this cancer brings. The medical staff were able to keep him alive via respirator so that our children (26 & 21) could make it home, for each, a 2 - 2 1/2 hour trip. They were able to say goodbye and we were with him as he passed away.

I have been absent from posting, but I have been looking in now and then. So many of you have been so kind and I just wanted to let you know.

Never mind waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stride down there and light the darn thing yourself!

Default So sorry!

I am so very sorry for the loss you and your boys are enduring right now. I cannot imagine how hard it must be. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

1st goal- ONEDERLAND! Check!
2nd goal- Less than 194 (a number I've been stuck at before) CHECK!
3rd goal- Reach the 180's- haven't been there since 1999. CHECK!
4th goal- 180 which means hitting the 50 lbs. lost mark! Check!
5th goal- Switching to size goals now more than pounds goals. Goal is to make it to size 12, at whatever weight that happens. CHECK!
6th goal- Size 10! (can't even believe this is possible!)
7th goal- Size 8 and MAINTAIN!
