Lump 2.0

By Tig2 ·
I never expected to install Lump 2.0. It just happened.

The next few months will be a tad smegged. Here I am registering for the next walk and hoping that I can even do it.

Not even sure why I am posting. Just want to keep y'all in the loop.

Been down this road before. At least this time I have a map.

But I also have all of you. Don't ask me why that makes it easier. It just does.

I would suggest that sites like this one are more than technical forums. They are families in a very new sense. They are created by people CHOOSING to care for and about one another. We are unique in a world that would never believe this.

Clap if you believe in fairies. Ring bells so that angels can get their wings (It's a Wonderful Life). And pray for me. Or pretend to. It all works out about the same.

Yeah, I know. Not the most intelligent post I have ever made. The ghost of Shakespeare isn't with me on this one...

Tig, my sympathies and a ray of hope

My mother downloaded Lump 2.0 over twenty years ago. She and my father are going to Italy next week.

Thanks, Sweetie

I've just been trying to get to 5 years. I'll take all the encouragement I can get.

I hope your folks have a wonderful time in Italy. I'm guessing, but I would say they deserve every moment.

New hard hat in the email. Thanks.

Tig, my prayer and sympathy

by DadsPad In reply to Lump 2.0

I saw you post this in a previously and was too stunned to reply at that time.

You have demonstated that you fight adversity and over come challenges. As Palmetto said, there is HOPE.

You have a lot of friends here for support. Lean on us if you need it.

You may wish you never said that.

Because I will lean on you all. I may not even be nice about it.

I'll get through this. I fight. And when the adversary is a stinker, I don't fight fair.

Right now, it is just good to have you all with me.

I don't even know what to say

by jmgarvin In reply to Lump 2.0

But know that your friends at TR are with you and thinking of you. Fight the good fight and keep trucking. We know you've got it licked and it'll be a thing of the past soon enough.

Oh and for those in the California (Bay?) area, Safeway is running a breast cancer research donation center. When you buy groceries, just pay a couple of extra bucks and donate a little to breast cancer research.

How cool!

When I received my registration information from the 3 Day, they mentioned that there would be a walk in your area for 2008.

I remember Safeway. Wish we had them here.

If you have any additional information on the Safeway campaign, please send it my way. Every bit helps in the fight.

And thanks for the hug. It helps in ways you can never know.

From a guy.....

by JamesRL In reply to Lump 2.0

The one thing I won't do is cry for you. Oh I understand if you want to or need to cry, and I don't mind if others do. But I recall my reaction when I found out my wife had MS, or this year when she had a traumatic brain injury. And I found that I was most useful as being what I am. I am someone you can lean on.

You can cry, whine, complain, shake your fist at the heavens and curse, its all the same to me. It won't shake my faith that you are strong and whatever happens going forward you will get through with dignity and grace. You can allow yourself to be human because you have friends who will have your back.

None of us know our path. I could die tomorrow in a car accident or live to 102. You can chose to live each day and each moment the best you can, and I have every hope that you will. You can generate some memories for when you are old and grey.

We are a kind of disfuntional family. I even got prezzies for Xmas from one of our family.

Feel free to PM me anytime.

Thanks for the perspective

by Tig2 In reply to From a guy.....

It has been a crazy day. I expect that there will be more. I expect to get through them.

What I think I will do is have a bunch of surgery and follow it with chemo. And buy a wig. I have seen me with no hair. Not a pretty picture!

What I will also do is pray. And let God do His thing.

If I had your address, I would send you prezzies. You are one of the best and I appreciate you more than I can say.

Thanks isn't near enough.

Clapping, ringing and praying

by Michael Jay In reply to Lump 2.0

Go ahead and lean on us, you know we are here for you even though we also know you are strong enough to do it alone, We hope you do lean on us, we do care.

We Love you Tig.

Best to you
