First of all...thank you, thank you. The many kind comments have given me a lot of comfort. I feel like I know some of you better than I know my closest friends. Second, RE phoned this afternoon to tell me to stop the drugs and let nature take its proverbial course. I knew it was bad news when I heard his voice on the phone instead of his nurse's. I'm sad and angry. And yeah, devastated, even though I knew this was a big possibility. Mr. W has not taken the news well. Despite his professional training in the ability to compartmentalize emotion and logic, he seems truly blown away. I really believe that he was convinced in his heart this would not end this way.
And so, I will step away from blogging for awhile to regroup. However, I will pop in and check up on all of you and especially wish Barefoot, EB, & MeKate much success.
