|I do not detect "grumpiness" in this compelling poem, Kate. It makes me yearn to "make it all better." Sincerest wishes of love, peace, strength and healing to you.

I am going to have to agree with Aberjhani. You have a wonderful ability to filter your pain into something that will encourage and offer strength to those who have to endure the same. I am appluading your gifts!

|Far more than "grumpiness," in these lines I sense a miraculous courage that radiates inspiration and grace. If the true work of the poet is to transform unwanted pain and despicable horror into welcomed knowlege and beauty worth celebrating, you do that work extremely well.|

|You are in my prayers, sweetie! Take care, and hope you feel better soon!
(((Gentle Hugs))) and much love (and many prayers, too!), your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :(
I need your prayers too: my step-mama's daughter had a baby boy, Randall, last week, and he has pulmonary atresia. He is in Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, and may need surgery down the road. Pray all goes well for him. Also pray for mama (his granny) and my daddy (his step-granpy). Also pray for his mama, Bethie! Thanks! :)

|I plan defeat of my end on death row –
watched not by faces grim with malice
but by friends and family willing me to live…
And we are all certainly doing that, Kate - Fight On, you will beat this Beast.

|Gather your forces over the coming weeks
and blitz the enemy with total poetics.

|You have the enemy by the balls. Just keep laughing as you squeeze them until castration..
Great expressions felt like I was a fly on de wall. Till some blighter went splat....

|I admire your strength and courage, Kate. I don't know if I could face the friendly fire and continue to focus on others and how I affect them. I fear that I would be wrapped in fear and self pity and "a little grumpy" would be a blessing compared to how my mood would be. You have been through a lot and you still have an upward climb ahead of you, so feeling a bit out of sorts would be expected. When you are going through such intensive treatment, it shines new light on the old saying "That which does not kill us makes us strong." I appreciate that you come here and allow us to be involved in what you are going through, it gives us an opportunity to wish you well and to understand that you need our prayers and our positive energy. Hang in there, darlin' you will be back to full steam in no time.

|Radiation saps all your energy, kills the appetite,makes you miserable, and if that isn't enough there is no alternative.
It's a treatment that must be endured for hope of its success, which by the way is very high rate and in the end worth it. I helped take care of my niece who went through it, so my heart and prayers go out to you! As do healing vibes of energy which I hope will reach yours, for some relief...Being grumpy isn't a crime you know;-) Who has a better right...

|Sounds like a horror movie with you as the lead actor. A truly scarry event that will be repeated for six weeks. Your strength will see you through this ordeal
and our prayers for you will bombard heaven that the beast that caused this will no longer exist. Get plenty of rest we need you back in good health.

|Oh Sweet Kate I wish I could have been there close by to hold a hand and whisper that you will always fly with or without the wings of an angel. Your heart and soul are pure and I know how you feel because I felt similarily after my own recent surgery. Take heart in knowing you have sooo many friends here on the den who love and need you.
