Ruth's musings

I have been dealing with breast cancer for a while, and have been sharing my journey with friends, family, and prayer partners. This blog brings all my updates together in one place, and leaves me free to muse on other parts of my life. Thanks for visiting!

Ruth Update November 11, 2008

I am in hospice care, though I haven't actually met with the hospice people. It looks like my time is running out faster than we had hoped.

Our new computer is not working well, so please see this blog for updates until further notice.

Also, my typing is not very good. I will try to get out updates as I can, but please check this blog for the latest news until further notice. You will not be getting the regular e-mails, but it is not because I don't love you

Get your mammograms. Do your self-exams.

    Can this be possible? I am so sorry and speechless.

    Ruth -- I was knitting with Jayme, Janet, and Lynn last night. We were thinking of you and wondering if there is anything we can do for you and your family.

    Please ask. Carol

    Ruth, all of us here at Timmy's school are with you in thought and prayer. What do you need? Meals? Someone to sit with you or read with you? Someone to run errands or clean house? Let me know, and I'll pass it on.

    Dear Ruth,
    You and your family will continue to be in my prayers. I have been following your journey through Ilka and your blogs. Thank you for those. Having received the breast cancer news myself last year, you have been a true inspiration and light to me and so many others. You will always be a light. Your courage and faith are remarkable.
    God Bless you and your family.
