Starting to feel "cursed"

At my job, we sit in rows of cubicles. Yes, prairie dogging goes on and all that you think about working in a cubbie would be like. Our row is made up of my "group/team" , a couple Administrative Secs & a two person team that staffs the kids we take care of. We are a little "family" in the middle of the rest of the staff (actually my former team was like that too..they still include me in their lunches cause we all got so close).

Anyway...........

If we believed in that sort of thing, we'd swear our row was cursed. Just about everyone has been touched in one way or another with illness and death in the last 6 months. We've had several cancer scares and several deaths. We've had family members that have had tests and ruled out cancer and others that have been diagnosed and are battling the monster.

Our latest is my wonderful team member I mentioned yesterday. The tests revealed Lymph involvement and they took out more tissue from her breast than they originally thought they would. She ended up spending the night in the hospital. Six of us walked over to see her this morning. She looks good, all things considered. She is supposed to go home later today after speaking with the Physical Therapist about her arm movement. They are supposed to have the test results from yesterday sometime soon.

CRAP!!!! It's so unfair. I think our row has contributed enough to the cancer stats for this year.

Can we stop now?

Ironically, they had a bake sale scheduled for today to benefit the Breast Cancer center where our friend is being treated. I'm convinced there are NO calories in any of the food consumed from that event. I did my part for the cause.

I wish I could do more.

Keep clicking the Mammogram fund button on the left side of my blog. It's a little something we can do. That & continue to pray.

Thanks.

JC...we love you!!!!


Til later............................

On a brighter note....8 months today!!! Love you DH.

Also...I have a light & airy post set for tomorrow. That is if I've figured out the "pre-writing" posting option. Right now it shows as a draft but I put a time to post so we'll see if it works. If not I'll just change it to "Post" and we'll all be happy.
