Wednesday morning I got up, went to wake up my daughter, and knew I had to go back to bed. Jono (my husband) called the cancer centre, and the nurse said, “Go to Emergency!”. So I spent Wednesday at the hospital. I slept in various chairs in a variety of spaces, generally upright, with blankets wrapped around me for most of the day. Tests, IV fluids, pills … eventually I started to feel better and they let me go home to my own couch and my own bed.
I am thankful.
For health, for healthcare, for a caring oncologist, for great nurses, technicians, doctors, researchers, cleaners, administrators … Thankful to be home and on the mend.
Who knows what tomorrow holds?
Don’t wait to do good. Do it now!
Say those encouraging words.
Tell them you love them.
Make the donation.
Do that one task.
Make the call.

I’m on the mend, Cecilia. Thanks for your care. See you soon, Lord willing.
Truly praying this was a “one-off” for you. Thanks for the reminder to seize the day. You are an inspiration.
Glad you’re feeling better Jill after Wednesday’s not so good day. You continue to be in my prayers. ((Hugs)) Marcia
Good on you Jill, glad you were soon home and feeling better
Jill, we thank God for you. I think back to the time many years ago when we attended OTS and served on the student council together. I remember with fondness getting to know Jono in our Ottawa days. Thank you for taking the time to share a bit of your story with us, you are a very good writer. I am praying for you and your family today.
I’m not a facebooker as a rule, but thanks for your sharing.
Thank you, Jim
God bless you, Jill. Praying for health and renewed strength. Thank you for inspiring us with your gentle, yet powerful reminders.
