Done wishin: In Remission

“Out of need springs desire, and out of desire springs the energy and the will to win.”– Denis Waitley

I win, you win, we win!

I got the call from my excellent Dr. Oncologist who reported that the radiologists that went over the PET and CAT scans with their fine toothed combs came back with an all clear, all gone, all be happy!

This is a short and sweet and happy post to say. YAHOO, WOOOOOOHOOOO, HALLELUJAH! Good riddance… goodbye cancer! HELLO second lease on life!

And hello to any and all that want to come visit, talk, walk have a glass of wine and a cup of coffee (both really good for getting rid chemo brain) and just appreciate, love and be with each other.

Thank you all for your various ways, thoughts ideas, and unending ever flowing support and BELIEF. Sweet Jesus we rock, huh?

Besos, smootches, hugs, and raised glasses!

    I’m crying with JOY to hear this news and see your radiant smile in the photo. There’s a song I sing with the chorale called ‘every day is a day of thanksgiving’ and this is truly one for celebrating in a big way. Great to walk and talk with you guys this past weekend. Love and Weaza hugs

    Dearest Lina,

    This is fabulous and I love your line about “the harder you fall..” As you know, you guys are in for a visit on Nov 5-6 and all you have to do is specify the wine label! And a small trip up that little hill behind your house also sounds good to me. Happiness rocks!!

    Love muches,

    Dearest Lina:

    I don’t know you very well, (mostly through Kristin and all the wonderful things she has told me about you), but reading your blog just now made my day, my month, my year. It brought joy to my heart and tears to my eyes.

    You have not only been in my thoughts non-stop, but your blogs have been so insanely inspirational to me. You are one of the strongest and most positive women/people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am lucky to know you.

    I raise my glass to you – to your family – to your life!

    With love and joy,
    Amy Neal

    You have been so much on our minds lately – what a joyous relief! You and Adrian have always struck me as two people who really LIVE life, so I’m pretty excited to see what Life 2.0 looks like. I think there will be flames, and perhaps shape shifting.

    all our love,

    amanda, eric and magny

    So, on May 21st you went into mass-general yo give a little of yourself for the second time. Out of a hole in your body came a little part of you. A bit of death and a whole lot of life. Like you said this was your new “birthday”. Yeah to you I proud of what you have done and how strong you have been doing it. Before this whole ordeal, we had a long time together and now we have a long time together. Yeah, again. Lets do much and love much and laugh much and not so much crying anymore. I love you, Linabean. Dad
