    Linda's feather

    I am posting this image and story to give people some comfort. It is the story of my friends stepmother, who unexpectedly passed away during my last visit here, to Columbus, Ohio. I am back here again very quickly, I love it here, it gives my girls a break from caring for my brittle diabetes and everything else, and Brian does a good job of it too.

    Linda knew she was dying days - maybe weeks - before those closest to her were willing to even entertain that possibility. She had a spiritual friend who asked her to think about a way to let us all know she was OK. After much thought she said simply, a feather.

    Her husband, Brians Dad, decided, after taking care of the 101 things to be done, after she passed, decided to take a road trip to Arizona, to Sedona, a fav place to them both, Sedona’s lore, it is supposed to be the most psychically/spiritually active place in all of North America, with two regions - they're called a “Psychic Vortex” - situated over rock formations known as Cathedral Rock and another over Bell Rock.

    He was taking sunrise pics while climbing Bell Rock, and suddenly saw this cloud overhead.

    Linda was a wonderful amazing person, she did not die from her breast cancer per se, but from septicaemia following stent surgery needed for massive liver secondaries. She fought with everything she had, but for those also facing the same path, I want you to know she had gained acceptance and peace and was ready to go. Love and miss you Linda.
    "Lymphoma" found on CT scan abdomen- end of March 2015.
    CT Chest-clear. CT Brain-clear PET Scan shows abdomen only!
    Biopsy of large para aortic lymph node under CT control confirmed
    Follicular NHL (one of the lucky ones, no excisional biopsy required)
    Multiple health issues complicate decisions to be made.
    Fragile Type 1 Diabetic for over 40 years
    Legally Blind and Blonde
    Slow progression towards getting healthy enough to complete staging
    and commence treatment if necessary.
    Decided to Watch and Wait, and enjoy the buzz of some long forgotten energy!
