I seem to be sliding a little on my blog these days, probably due to my bouts of not feeling well.  Food has no appeal these days but continue to force feed myself under Bill's ever watchful eye.  I know I have neglected many of you with my absence and there are many out there wondering if they have offended me.  It hurts me to think you could even begin to consider this possibility given the fact you have all treated me so well.  Believe me I would love to be out smacking the ball on the golf course, going for lunch, heading west to Windermere, walking the dog, enjoying coffee dates but it just isn't possible right now.  I'm trying to find myself back there and truly believe I can be there but just need some time to myself.  Some of you definitely get this and some feel neglected.  Please don't feel like this.  It just isn't the case and the last thing a need to fret about is my friends and family feeling as if I'm snubbing them.  Pure and simply, I think this is the roughest I have felt from start to now.  Eeven my Dad feels a little helpless.  He keeps offeing to do something.  At this point in time there is nothing to be done so sit tight, sent me positive vibes, keep those emails rolling.  I love reading your lovely upbeat mesages every single morning, I LOVE YOU!  And to those of you who need to see mel......just call or drop by.  I still enjoy my visitors....just not all day!
Love to all!!!!!Thanks again for the time and energy you have put into keeping me positive and happy over the entire year and a half!!!!  It is unbelievable to me how may have stuck by my side,  I have some very special people in my corner and I know it!


  1. We love you Leslie!!! Thinking about you 100 times a day!!! Take your and recover!!!

    Love ya

  2. Leslie - the fact that you do blog almost every day amazes me! I really don't know how you find the strength to do all that you do. You are so loved and cared about by so many people. If any of them ever feel offended by you (I can't imagine this happening!) then they certainly do not belong in the friend category!!!

    Also wanted to comment on your blog about cribbage. It must be a generational thing. I remember when my son broke his back when I was working at Ranchlands - the biggest stress reliever we had as a family was hauling out the cribbage board and doing battle against each other. Never did play for money - that would have made it very interesting!

    Remember all who do love you and are pulling for you with all our strength!

  3. Hey there, always good to hear your voice, yes I have a gift where I can hear you when you type.

    We are heading out to Radium for the weekend again. This has been a great summer for me with no chemo it is really like you said some time ago. Hard to believe just how weak and crappy you feel on Chemo until you come off of it. Still don't have enough energy to mow the lawn but much better than before.

    Listening to your blogs makes me realize the strength you have and that is something I take as a challange to find that strength within myself.

    Take care, rest when you want, sleep when you want and keep plowing. Always thinking of you.

    Your TBCC chemo buddy

  4. Hey Les,
    Continue to take it easy and keep the positive thoughts coming until you feel better and know that all of us are sending all of our positive vibes out to you too!! Hold your hands out and randomly grab em from the sky- just don't do it at the Stupidstore!!! but if you did, I would know why!!!!
    Love ya!!

  5. Hi Leslie,
    I sent you another email some time ago through the CBE but you probably did not receive it. I just want you to know I have been following you all along the way and sending you positive thoughts but have only now plucked up the courage to write on a public site. Hang in there. And stop worrying right now about offending people!

  6. Hi Leslie, I check in here often though don't often leave a message. I just want to say that each day I run I think of you and the day you gave me those blasted shoelaces. Those shoelaces ensured that I followed through with what I said I was going to do and I have never looked back. Your influence and nudging has had a great deal of impact in my life. Even though we didn't work together long I want you to know I am thinking of you my friend.
