MMMMMMMMMMM alphabetical skills have been lacking. Acronyms too. Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

This is life folks. My husband Geoffrey is in Mercy Hospital in Redding with the above. It is a sneaky bugger, slow growing, by now more then a decade but who knew?

We eat well home grown, organic for the most part. We work hard with a herd of LaMancha dairy goats, chickens and such. But when my husband was young in New Jersey and each week the truck went through the neighborhood spraying a fog of DDT the parents encouraged the children to go "play" in the fog. It was the fifties who knew?

So maybe the take home from this is if it kills anything then it isn't good for anyone? I will try to keep blogging but some days between the farm and daily visits to the hospital it is hard to even keep eating.

This sharing isn't about "poor me, or poor us" it is sharing. Get up breath, one foot in front of the other and make it through the day. We are all human, all of us put our jeans on in the same fashion. Isn't it about time to take into consideration that we are all the same, down in the core?

Have a blessed evening with the ones you love!

A bit of love for you all.


  1. thinking about you both! CUSBTTTW. seriously, sending thoughts of healing and strength!

  2. Please get a second opinion from a CLL expert, not a general hematologist/oncologist. CLL is very variable and needs experienced specialized care. Stay strong. Brian Koffman(

  3. Oh Terry, you and Geoffrey have both been added to the prayer list. You're going to both go through some difficult days; stay strong, stay in God's word and have people to help support you as you support Geoffrey. There's so much I could tell you; walking that path with Dave was, mostly, overwhelming but we had some really great times as well. You are right...we are all made in the image of God and are His sons and daughters but why He allows bad stuff to happen, I haven't a clue. I do know I still choose to trust, love and give Him my life. You are loved with an everlasting love and underneath are His everlasting arms. Terry, you are tucked into prayer as is Geoffrey. xoxo, Sandra
