Catherine, We were out on the water today at Chew Valley Lake, south of Bristol UK. It was champagne sailing. As I trimmed the main i was thinking of you. We sailed in the NOW. Appreciating every puff and sparkle of sunshine on the water. We thank you for reminding us to do this.

I hope you and Dan had a good day too.

Stay strong Catherine.

Chris

Catherine, Dr. Jack Kruse is a neurosurgeon, he has a web site, you need to talk to him, stay strong, keep an open mind, stay positive.

Catherine, I really suck at dealing with these kinds of topics.... but I sincerely wish you fair winds and an end to your pain and suffering. I lost my father to cancer and my only consolation in losing him was that he was a good man and he was in a FAR better place.

I don't know what awaits us beyoned this life, but I suspect in your case there will be lots of sharpies, copious amounts of adult beverages and you flashing your tits will always appreciated. Unfortunately I don't know you all that well - but I suspect you were one of the few of us here on earth who lived life to the fullest. There's a lesson there for all of us....

You are one of the "good ones" Catherine. Be safe and be well in your journey.

Too much eulogy and good byes here folks! I am still here and i refuse to let this take me. There is hope and what is happening to me, as frightening and heart breaking as it is, is what happens to all of us : NO ONE knows when there time is up. All we have is the NOW.

I truly hate those smiley face emoticon thingies but in this case smiley face wins.

Excellent post.

And lest we forget, another shout out to Dan for all the emotional and physical energies he has dedicated to Lady C. An example for us all in the pay forward game. It does matter.

Dan, and all of MSG's family, are truly amazing strong kind hospitable welcoming people.

Redboat is absolutely correct - the support-team is crucial and Catherine has a great one.

They are all bouyed by the love and support they read from everyone here...and quite honestly they're blown away by it. That is good, strong medicine along with all of the positive energy that flows from here.

GO THE CATHERINE!

Strength of spirit, courage and determination should not be discounted. She has an abundance of all three.

GO THE CATHERINE. You are so much more than you give yourself credit for. You may have 'shrunk' on the outside, but your huge heart and that flash of 'bring it!' In your eyes would intimidate me, were I cancer.

Your terms.

I love you. Grace and Dignity.


Yeah! ^ What Carina said ^

Hugs from Colorado today. I went up to the top of Pikes Peak yesterday (14,110') on a cog railway, with a dear friend who is also a cancer survivor. MS fatigue kept me from trying to climb it, but if you can bag a Colorado 14er, sometimes it's worth it no matter how you get there. Plus, they have the most amazing donuts at the top. (Seriously!) The view from the summit was amazing, even if the air was a bit thin. I'm pretty sure I could see Albany from there, so I sent you some most excellent good vibes Karma, and my friend did as well. Keep smiling, darlin'

There's a comfort in this thread. A reminder that no one is alone, that life is still beautiful and that we all go on to our next adventure. We're all part of the great circle of life. No one's life is any greater or any less than any other. Remember to tell those you love that you love them, to take things one day or sometimes just one hour at a time, that there is strength and courage in numbers and that we all get a lifetime here.

Make it nice. Make it count. Remember to smile, it makes the world a better place.

To those fighting cancer and to those whose loved ones are touched by it, may we all continue to thrive and survive.

Peace.


I was reading this thread from the beginning and found this post. Catherine, you have been such a supporter of those affected by this damn fucking disease for such a long time. It is my sincere hope, prayer, and wish upon a star that you become one of the ones who defy the odds.

I go away for a week and this is what I come back to?

Catherine: I do have some pics I took of frogs. I'll send them to you tonight when I get home from work.


Recently I was thinking about all the friends, real and imaginary, (IE internet friends) that I've lost and since I just bought a boat I thought I would take them all sailing w/ me by posting their name and a pic in my logbook.
Well guess what Catherine? YOU ARE NOT going in that logbook yet! So hang in there.

Sh!t. And now I'm supposed to go back to work and concentrate? (this is not a good thing!)

If there is ever a doubt that Catherine should go to Heaven, St Peter need only read this thread. You are so loved that it would be selfish of Him to take you from us too soon. There is too much yet to do.
I feel the fair winds and the itch to sail in my blood. It is what binds us all to you, my dear. Take our strength and love to help you fight for another day.

Love you Catherine! Keep fighting the good fight. We will get to sail together again.... I insist. And you know what a bitch I am when I don't get what I want.

Thought we all needed a little Jimmy V:

" During his speech the teleprompter stated that he had 30 seconds left, to which Valvano responded, "They got that screen up there flashing 30 seconds, like I care about that screen. I got tumors all over my body and I'm worried about some guy in the back going 30 seconds." His speech included this statement:

To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.[7]

Valvano's ESPY acceptance speech became legendary, and he closed by saying, "Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever. I thank you and God bless you all."

I just keep feeling like Catherine's gonna make it through this squall too. But man oh man has it been a humdinger.
I have kept you in my thoughts MSG. Stay strong girl. We may seem faraway, but we are traveling with you holding you up as best we can.

Catherine:
The sun came out! I walked the dogs. I have a tough week ahead of me. It's the anniversary of Spike's death. Not sure how I'm going to handle it. It does help to know that you are still fighting the battle. I know it's hard. People say, "Oh, I can't imagine." I can. I think. But I kind of enjoy being a part of your cheer leading team. You beat this thing. If I had pom poms and a tutu I'd put it on but not sure if you'd want to see that picture. Beat the cancer then we can all celebrate. I like saying "good morning" to you. My day would be less without that.

Dammit Catherine, you made me sign-in and post for the first time in over two, maybe 3 years.

You are what made this site good in the beginning. I wish you peace. You made and will continue to make a difference.

It is not strange. I think it is harder on the loved ones. And we sick ones can get pretty cranky and take it out on them. Support people, friends and families, ROCK!

Enough of good byes, indeed. No one has left. The odds may not be the best, but then... I bet that probably 90%+ of all those who entered WTC on 9/11 had all the odds of making it through the day, and many of them had friends & family in MSG situation, facing lousy odds... Guess what? The odds fooled them all, I am sure many of those lousy" odds are still around, while the rest...

Wfo can say who's the first to leave?

While there's life, there's hope.

Cath, you're a tough chick!! And you are strong. Just keep on living, will you?

I am not afraid to say goodbye today, because I know that, if we both live to see tomorrow, we can say hello again.

Dear Catherine: My personal belief is that the only thing that remains after this is done, is what we've left behind in the hearts of others. I've never met you in person; I've only talked to you on the phone maybe twice; and yet you've brought something positive to my life. I may be only carrying a tiny speck of you, but I'll carry it with honor.

And I'll carry a Sharpie marker, too, just in case we both live long enough to meet in person....

Top of the afternoon to you!

Even middle aged memory cannot affect my thoughts of you:D . I may have forgotten to have a "real" drink last night and forgot my nephew's birthday yesterday, but I have not forgotten all my thoughts about you.

I will apply all my anarchist will power and toast that drink to you this evening.

Lots of hugs and peace,

LUNCH! I owe you an order of stuffed vine leaves the next time I see you - I haven't forgotten. I, on the other hand, am currently enjoying NYC's finest offering... "street meat".

Anyway, all that means is that I've slowed down a little in my day, allowed my thoughts to wander, and they wander happily back to you and your infectious smile.

Sending you lots of happy smiles and love!

I got an amazing PM from Snags last night. I would truly love to meet the Snaggy one. He is a SA treasure.

Hi Catherine, take no notice of these sanctimonious land-lubbers. Keep giving those cancer cells hell. I hope you'll like this one;

O Lord above, send down a dove
With wings as sharp as razors
To cut the throats of them there blokes
What sells bad beer to sailors.
