It's Not Easy Being The Perfect Man....



That's why I think Moshura should get a gold medal for being great thus far! Dealing with cancer is not easy. Going through surgery and the daily pain is awful. But we are all here to try and make it less challenging. Anyway, I'd like to welcome all of you to the inauguration of this blog. Please chime in whenever you want, about serious things, about silly things, anything goes. We are all going through Moshura's cancer together and I hope we can stay on track with the important things so that we can help Moshura get through this. So go ahead, vent, laugh, joke, frown, jump, fall, I don't know! You know you like to waste time! So get creative, it's all yours!! And encourage family and friends to visit the neighborhood often! Lotsa' love, your host... in a land far far away... The Cow in a Blanket... That's what Machito called me last night...wahhh!! Could he tell over the phone I gained 10 pounds!?!

Got Hope? I Do! said...

I will give you (the cancer survivor(s)) a daily food for thought:

Make your own self the PRIORITY number one!

Make a list of what you would like to do or accomplish today and do your best to finish it. (Unless you are tired due to Chemo Therapy, Radiation, or just plain tired (damn it ,your entitled to a just because i didn't want to do it today , do not exert yourself)

Life goes on......and you are entitled to do so too....enjoy doing your daily activities as before...lift your head up high and shoulders back look forward at all times, and enjoy life in front of you.

Just wanted to let you know that one week of radiation has gone by and now there is only 6 weeks to go! Marco is doing good thus far a little tired after the treatments and with some pain from the pins and needles in his foot but is doing well.

Today, we took Machini to City of Hope as you know he loves going there to see the gardens especially the Japenese Garden to feed the fish.

Well today he was not a happy camper cause he didn't sleep in his bed so he couldn't go to the gardens. So he went to the radiation waiting room with all of us and watched Marco walking down the hall waiting to be called .....As I was standing watching Marco, Machini came over and stood beside me and was listening to me telling Marco to bend his knee while he passed by us....Machini decided to ask Marco " Can I walk with you papa?" and Marco reached out for his hand and they walked down the hall together and you could see Machini raising his legs like his papa and telling him "bend your knee papa like this" I thought it was cute. A Kodak moment indeed. ( I should carry a camera)

I wanted to thank you for all your comments. Good idea get off my cloud

Somewhere I read once that laughter is good for the soul...I can't remember where but .....anyway.

Today after radiation we went to get a burger....after a while G took a bite of Machini's burger and placed it back in front of him.

Machini looked at G with an angry stare and said " hey, you bit my burger and G said "No!".... he leaned into the burger and stared at it as it was coming up close to his mouth and he dragged the burger on his tongue when suddenly he started make all kind of faces ( like what the hell was that!).....his little body started to jerk all over the place then he looked at Marco and I and said " I don't think I like this anymore."

Marco started to laugh. I thought to myself, self I said he just got a good dose of laughter......

well not really I just thought I add that but it sounded good when I typed it out, didn't it?
it was funny.( ha ha)

well ive been going to radiation with my mom and dad for just about everyday that my dad has had radiation. and every time matthew has joined us i noticed he always seems to brighten the other patients day. mathhew being the little friendly person he is will go say hello to the other people in there and then start introducing everyone and there mother [litterly] in the room then start asking twenty quwstions.[as if he needed to know about there personal lives.] well thats what we get from little curious kids theese days.oh well!!! looks like matthew will be the one too count on if you need a laugh. hes so funny. and thats good that we'll be able to count on matthew to put a smile on my dads face when he needs it.

This goes to Machito and Daddy's little Princess... You both bring a smile to him. You mean so much than you would ever realize. Parents live for their children. You little Princess mean so much and also can bring a smile to your dad. Trust me... If you only knew... and realized.

Daddy Lil Princess,
I am glad you wrote something in here and how nicely you expressed yourself about Machini

but weezy130 put it even better ,you, yourself bring a smile to your daddy's face.......since before you were born.....

got hope? i do! said...

My children are what keep us going through uncharted waters with cancer.......and every smile and every thought counts to give us energy and that encouraging power to fight harder.

Our family as a whole sees life in a different perspective ....every day we appreciate and everyone in our lives now more than ever
before.

Reading the blog, tells me Mushura is a very wealthy person by that I mean the wealth of many who care ,love and hold him/her dear to their hearts. To support him in this long journey.

I believe each and everyone of us has God formost watching over them (no matter your religion) the strength ,the will power,hope and most of all positive attitude and strong support system to help us cope with the challenges cancer brings.

I for one wish you the best for your speedy recovery ............
FIGHT ON!
