    Catherine, I’m so glad to hear you’re home and recovering. The day of your surgery, one of my colleagues was celebrating her 10th cancer-free year after her breast-cancer treatment, and I’d like to think that’s an omen for you.

    So glad to know you’re home, kitty in lap, typing away (amazing!). Painkillers are good, too. You’re in my thoughts often … With love, Clare C.

    Sweetie – I am sooo very relieved to hear you are well (while I love my sabbatical I do hate being so far away during this time – so Emma gets all the chicken soup i would make for you…) Here’s a great movie to watch while you’re recovering (ok, really depressing but you shouldn’t laugh real hard now anyway): “I’ve Loved you so long” – fantastic Frenchie movie, bittersweet tone, perfect for bittersweet convalescing. And I think you should also bone up on your poker skills so that you are a more serious contender because, alas, cancer doesn’t mean I will take it easy on you at feminist poker night.

    love love love from Suzanna and seriously teenaged Emma

    Thank you so much for sharing your story during this crazy time. I can’t imagine what you’re going through, but it sounds like you’re getting great medical and emotional guidance. My mom and I are thinking about you here in Louisville. Hang in there.

    Catherine—I’m new to the story, just catching up, but I am so glad that you’re doing well after surgery. And, one of your previous commenters got it exactly right: love your blog voice—it’s brave and funny and cynical (in a good way) and loving, and I’ve been laughing out loud. Laughing, reading a breast cancer blog. Only you could do it!

    All kinds of love and prayers coming at your from your northern friends!
