Thank you for your kind words of comfort....

I was going to wait until Monday to post but, everyone has been so supportive in getting me through this weekend I wanted to take the time out to thank everyone today. After my phone call on Friday, actually it was voice message. I missed the call and, couldn't call back because they were closed already, I was not looking forward to the weekend. It was going to be long and drawn out. I couldn't post a message of support on Facebook because my mom's on there and I didn't want her to worry more than she already is (my sister has been unemployed for awhile). I told my husband and he was like, "Oh you've had to go back before, you'll be fine." I love my husband and he supports me, he would be worried sick if anything were to happen but, he's the type of person that won't worry about anything until he has to.

So, I thought to myself, "My blog, I'll put it out there." I had to put it somewhere. I'm sure you all know the thoughts that are swimming in my head.

I cannot express in words the relief, emotion and support I felt as I read all of your posts. I'm overwhelmed. I didn't even know some of you let alone your blogs. Your words, prayers, positive energy, chi, happy thoughts and whatever any of you sent me, worked! I'm still worried but I felt so comforted this weekend knowing that people from all over the world were thinking about and supporting me. I've actually had a normal weekend that didn't drag on. I walked on the beach with my little dog, did some crafts and laughed with my husband.

I'll keep this short and update on Monday or whenever I get my results but, thank you, thank you, thank you!
You are all an amazing group of people. And, even though we are all connected by blogland, we are connected in spirit. I truly felt it this weekend.

Many, many blessings to all of you and your families. I'll be lighting candles for all of you. I'll keep you posted.

  5. It's a beautiful world, isn't Joane? I'm glad I could be a small part of you feeling peaceful over the weekend. Waiting is the hardest part. I also had the thought that you are blessed to have medical peeps in your life that are on the ball. So many times we hear the opposite. I'm believing with you for a good report! Hugzzzz

  6. Joane, thank you for being so honest in your challenges with your health as well as sharing your beautiful attitude about gratitude. Sending you many, many blessings,

  7. Thanks for sharing your heart with us girl. Isn't blog land just amazing. My family kinda laughs at me when I talk about all of you..'oh so and so this, or so and so that'. They say to me..'you don't even know these people'..YES I do...even though many of us will never meet face to face on this earth, we truly are kindred spirits. At times it seems like my 'friendships' through blogging and vlogging (you tube videos) have become stronger than the 'real' world....I love how our paths join together...((hugs))
