HNT w Hector

This is Hector Protector. He was a gift from an old friend who survived a bout with cancer many many years ago. She was convinced that Hector was the reason.

When I was diagnosed some twelve odd years ago, she passed him on to me. He has watched over me these past twelve years faithfully sitting up on my dresser and serving as the occasional hat rack.

Since I am still here to play HNT, he must be doing his job.

I wish that he could take care of two people. My wife is nearing the end of her fight with the dragon. Last week, we signed up for hospice for her. We don't know how much time she has left. Ta. Posted by Picasa

All my love and prayers to you and your wife...with or without a Hector Protector to be with you. My mom is on year 5 with the beast and is resigned to chemo indefinitely at this point. Peace and Happy HNT.

Best. Tess.

When I get bored sometimes I peruse blogs. Usually linked from other blogs. Generally speaking I glance and laugh and move on.

You blog made me take pause. In all of this crazy silly blogging real life is happening to people.

Words cannot express how sorry I am that you have to experience what you are going through. Sometimes things truly are not fair in life.

Take Care

As I read through your posts, I just couldn't stop. I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through. Makes you stop and think. I send my heart and my prayers.
