Hampstead...if you head to ohio and pass through Kentucky on your way....let us know and we will have courtesy parking for you. I just lost my mother last week and will say an extra prayer for the kids and family and Brenda herself. God Bless to everyone that has helped this great family.

Hi All,
Brenda update:

I had dinner with Brenda a couple of weeks ago and she looked better. I thought her bout with pneumonia was the beginning of the end but she's recovered fairly well and is looking better. She's still terribly thin and is using her cane more but she's hangin' in!

Someone nominated her to the "EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER" show and they're being considered. I'm not sure where they are in the process but if her Alumin-angels will send up a prayer for the family it would be great. With all the medical expenses they've had over the past couple of years their house has been on the back burner.

Thanks AGAIN for all the blessings,
Karen

PS, For those of you who don't know the show...a huge crew of builders, designers, carpenters, plumbers, etc. come in, tear down the old house and build a new one in it's place (in 7 days!), completely furnished down to the dish towels in the kitchen and food in the frig. Often the mortgage is paid off as well. There might be scholarships for the kids or a new vehicle in the garage. (It's my Saturday morning coffee show!) Pretty cool, huh?!

Hi All,
I had dinner with Brenda and our friend Andi a few days ago and Brenda told me she was having her semi annual battery of tests and scans blah, blah, blah...she's kind sick of being poked and prodded.
Anyway, I spoke with her today and the newest scan showed 13 new tumors in her lungs since March. Not good.
She said she's going to keep on keeping on as long as she's able and in typical Brenda fashion said "I'm not horizontal YET!".
She then thanked me and all of you who helped last fall for helping her create all these memories with her kids. So consider yourselves thanked again...you all rock and should be proud of yourselves for being there for a complete stranger.
Blessings on you,
Karen

Hi All, Latest update on Brenda...She's STILL fooling her doctors! I wouldn't say she's "well", but she's still with us. We had dinner 2 weeks ago and were talking about how long it's been since she was diagnosed...4 years and counting. The doc's have told her 3 or 4 times to get her affairs in order and then she keeps going. They don't know why but prayer and stubborness have a lot to do with it I'm absolutely certain! There are tumors in her lungs and she's having pain in her head, all bad signs but she's still puttin' along getting in all the time she can with her kids and several new grandbabies too. Keep praying or sending good mojo...it's WORKING! Thanks again our dear Alumin-angels.

Wow, I cried till I could not breath. Not because of the pain but "angel cohorts" always stirs my soul. I wrote down the bank information with shaky hands. In The Spirit, Hope

The love of my life passed and the memories of living his "bucket list" & our "angel cohorts" has held me together many of nights. 8,123 photos of every (re)-action for months and than laying down (the camera) for a quiet 2 week Good-Bye.

Airstream631, First, condolences on your loss...It amazes me that you can feel someone elses pain when your own is so great! You must be a wonderful person.

I had coffee with Brenda just this week and she's still hanging in there. In fact her kids want to go back to Williamsburg so we spent an hour and planned another trip for 2012. Brenda's husband, Jim, may even be able to go along this time.

The original trip was in the fall of 2009 so I don't think the account is still open. If you'd really enjoy sending her something I will forward it to her, but only if you'd really like to.

From time to time I re-read this thread and I cry every time too. I'm so grateful for the help my dear friend of 30+ years recieved and that she's still here with us.

Blessings,
Karen

Hi All, I was just talking with Paula about Brenda and she suggested I post an update on how Brenda is doing. She's STILL fooling her docs and hanging in there. She has 19 tumors in her lungs but they don't seem to be growing, at least not very fast so she keeps puttin' along. She has good and bad days but is planning to take another trip to Williamsburg this Fall with several of her kids .She has a couple of new grand babies and Sarah got married as did Daniel (I think it was Daniel) Anyway, all things considered she's OK for now. She still mentions the new friends she made on the previous trip and corresponds with several. She sends her love to everyone who helped with her trip or prayed for her. Thanks again Alumin-angels, Karen
