A Break In Transmission ....


I am taking a teeny weeny mini blog break for a time
as chemo is kinda kicking my butt at the moment
so I am going to be resting up, drinking tea and dreaming about George Clooney
 in an effort to get back on my feet quick smart
and get that paint brush back in my hands
happy painting all...xx

Rest up Trace and enjoy this time between chemos. It makes me happy knowing you are going to take it easy before the next round starts and have a few weeks of reprieve to gather your strength back up. Take care xx

Taking care of yourself is the priority right now....we'll be here when you feel up to it. You've displayed such courage, such resilience and humor through this whole thing. I continue to be amazed by your ability to find humor in a not-funny situation and to try to keep your life as normal as possible. You're well loved (both at home and here in www land) and I want to add my well wishes to the list. Whenever you need a little lift, just read through the comments on any of your recent posts.....they're filled with thoughts, prayers, and care from people all over the world that are all sending you just a bit of their strength and love. Go ahead, hug it to yourself and feel better!

oh Tracy... i am so sorry to hear this...
i finally took the time to catch up on your blog (and others) and i can't tell you how sad i was when i saw the word chemo in your post. If anyone can kick this - it's YOU Tracy. Don't ever forget that you have the power to heal yourself more than you may think. Take the break you need and come back only when you're ready. We'll be here. My thoughts are with you across the oceans... xox
