New Way to be Human

Nov. 18 2004, my Mom was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer. I started this blog to chronicle her journey. July 19, 2005 she gave her life in the battle. This blog is my place to process through the journey I walked along with her, and now my journey through grief. It's also a place to discuss the effects cancer has on the lives it touches--survivors and caregivers alike. I'm a Navy wife, a Mom, and my mother's daughter now and forever.

Friday kidlet and me, along with "Pa-pa"--caravanning in his mini-van are going to again cross the western 2/3s of the country to go HOME. Home is such a sweet word. In less than a couple of weeks we'll be back in my husband's arms again, unpacking, and arranging our new house.

If you are one who prays, please pray for us. The journey is long and we're all weary.... And reunions are joyful, but anxiety-laden.

When we have internet access again (please God, let it be high-speed), I'll be back.
