I'll always put any updates I have into this thread.  I write to Greta (paper mail), usually bi-weekly, but it has been a little while between my travel and then bronchitis. I will drop her a line tonight if I can.  I'll ask if there is an update, as others have asked about her.  Thank you!

 

 

Thanks Patty Joanna!

Oh, I am so happy for her, and hope she’s having a wonderful second honeymoon if it’s still in process!

What great news.  News like this is why I tell people to destress, enjoy life, do what is necessary to stay alive, functioning, and pain free as possible and do not worry about the stats

Reading this news quite literally gave me goosebumps on my arms.  What a wonderful update!  (Although the tinnitus sounds not so fun.)  I am very much keeping her in my thoughts.    Thank you so much for the post.

UPDATE:

Greta has beat the odds and has had some reduction in the size of her tumors.  She had her husband have had a wonderful second honeymoon to the most romantic of cities—Paris—and have found the way to love one another and life while squarely facing this serious illness.  She’s connected at her parish with frequent gatherings, and, of course, connected with her medical community with frequent meetings.  Greta calls herself most blessed to have this time with her husband, daughter, family and friends.  

Recently, she has developed really loud tinnitus, so she has joined me in the hearing-aid-brigade, which lets her play white noise into her ears that at least distracts from the tinnitus.  And podcasts too.  :0)  It's not curative but it does help.

Going into this diagnosis, 9 months ago, the "expectancy" was stated as 12 months.  Without raising her hopes or projecting doom, her doctor told her that she is healthier now than she was 12 months ago, and recent tests revealed "nothing new."  (That's called "good news" in this milieu.)

Please keep praying for her.  She is going to try to read the posts here, so if you want to chime in, feel free.  

(Just between us chickens, Greta has found and displayed amazing grace in a most unexpected place and experience.  We should be so happy to call her one of "ours." )
 

❤️

When I saw the update, I was fearing the worst.  Continuing to keep her and her loved ones in my prayers. ❤️

Maybe edit the title of this thread? When I checked for the update, I was not expecting such positive (perhaps even miraculous) news. How wonderful for her family.

Best Wishes, Greta for continued, sustained recovery! Prove them wrong!

Not surprised that Greta is handling this with her usual calm and grace that she has been displaying here.

Praying you will get rid of the infection pronto. Thinking of you often.
