As you may recall from a recent post, I’m kind of having a rough year. In addition to losing a friend, my brother-in-law, and most recently, my oldest brother,(Mike) my family is now in the midst of another sad crisis. My only other brother, John, (I have 4 sisters) has been sickened with Covid, and he has been in the hospital for nearly two weeks now.
My friends, please say a little prayer for my brother. He recently turned 70, but we couldn’t visit him in the Covid ward, so we sent cards. He is now in ICU, and we are still hopeful, and we pray for his survival. Thank you.
I made this little meme, because I think we all have days like this. My best wishes to you, and please get vaccinated <3
Our dear friend and lovely human being Celeste Yarnall (Yeoman Martha Landon in ‘The Apple”) going through an absolute hellish time right now. As you may recall from my previous posts, Celeste has been dealing with Ovarian Cancer for several years now, and although she is now free of her ovarian cancer, the damned disease has now claimed her lungs. And she is now receiving home and hospice care for her condition. And praying for a miracle.
As Celeste wrote a few days ago:
Today a decision was made to set up home hospice for me with palliative care and of course my beloved husband Nazim is the most amazing angel on the planet and is right by my side as is my wonderful daughter and sone in law but these folks can give me IV fluids, pain meds and we soon find out what else they can do.
We’ve increased my oxygen flow but the cough, spasms and suffocating mucus along with the pain in my chest has made my life absolutely miserable.
I’ve not been able to sleep…
This is heartbreaking for me. I’ve been friends with Celeste through FB for several years now, and I have enjoyed supporting her cancer fund, and sending her little collages with her Trek character and messaging each other from time to time. She is an amazing woman with a big smile and an even bigger heart. I am so happy and honored to know her, and thankful for her friendship, especially as I was also dealing with a (much smaller) case of breast cancer in 2014 (now 4 years clear, amen).
I am so very sad to hear that she is going through hellish coughing spells that make it difficult for her to speak and sleep. I ask you all to please pray very hard for Celeste, her family, friends, and her beloved daughter Cami, and husband Nazim, who have been her rock all this time.
And Celeste I hope you know that I’m praying for you too, and that I am so thankful to know you are my friend. You have often referred to me as ‘your angel’, please know that you are MY angel too, and I, and all the readers here at Trekker Scrapbook love you too. Sending many hugs and healing thoughts and prayers. Rest well and know you are surrounded by LOVE.
Just wanted to let you know that I had a biopsy today. Without going into too much detail, I just want to say that there’s an 80% chance that my little problem is benign. So please say a little prayer for me, and keep meditating on that number; 80%. (I’ll know by Monday) Thanks for your support.
In other much happier news, today was also my 21st Wedding Anniversary! Already?? Seems like yesterday. Love my Mister!
