Good news. (Mostly)
Let’s get the bad news out of the way quickly: I’m having trouble with my hands shaking. Doctor suspects the tumors in my brain are pressing on some nerves (or something like that.) It makes typing hard, so I may not be posting as much going forward. But for those of you who worry when you don’t see something for a while (I’m looking at you, Luke–and thanks.), I’ll give Susan a brief self-written obit to post when I am no more.
The good news is, I’ve been having more good days than bad lately, so Ginny and I are planning a trip to New York. We’ll take the train to the city on Wednesday, then plan on visiting Jason’s family in Beacon from there. We’ll return the middle of next week. Hospice people visited us today to help us line things up. (In addition to all my meds, I need oxygen 24 hrs. a day everywhere I go, so it’s a bit of a production.)
A special thank you to Chris Jacobs for a wonderful, very flattering article in the new Communication Arts magazine. A complete surprise. And thanks to all the people who contributed. I guarantee that I learned more from all of you than you could possibly have learned from me.
And thanks again to Barb Fitzgerald for the Boomer article. (http://www.theboomermagazine.com/dying-words/) I can’t die now: people are saying such incredible things about me, I don’t want to miss a word.
I don’t deserve all this, but I deeply appreciate it.
