Ono, if you see this, I am sending good thoughts for you and your friend. Just in case you don't see it, I would like to ask my friends here who are still in good standing at TVT to please..please post the message for me on the other forum. Ono is one of the good ones. Love you friend.

Oh sweet Blue, you have no idea how much it means to me that you heard about my sadness and sent a message. I love you too my friend.

Cancer SUCKS! I lost Jay last year, and now I'm losing Kelly. I'm getting mighty tired of watching friends fade away. I know that as we get older we are bound to lose more and more friends, but could I at least have next year off?

Things have been really busy around here lately. Of course the tourists are in town already so I'm open seven days a week. I hosted a benefit for our local no-kill animal shelter that burned to the ground in April. THAT was a lot of work - food, silent auction, raffles, and some great music. We raised a lot of money though, so all the work was worth it. I DID finally get my taxes done, at the last minute as usual, and the good news is, I never lost my temper once! Whistle Had a big after hours party and jam here at the shop last week too. Plus I had been going to Kelly's two mornings and six evenings a week to cook and clean and visit.

She's in the hospital now, waiting for a Hospice room to open up. Another friend and I FINALLY convinced her yesterday morning that it was time. She had been refusing to even talk about it up until then. Her body had started shutting down and she was hours away from leaving, but they have her on IV's now so she's "perked up" a little. She was mostly unconscious, but now she wakes up for a few minutes at a time and is no longer hallucinating. When her sister arrives on Friday she has to decide whether to keep up with the IV's and prolong Kelly's life for two to three weeks, or to just give her pain meds and let her go. I don't envy her.

Oh, Blue - I got the baritone back and they did it right this time. It is WONDERFUL! It rumbles enough to break windows. For some reason I keep wanting to play Spanish music on it. Probably because the tone is so deep, like those gigantic guitarons they play in Mexico.

Let's see, what else is new since my last visit here, several months ago? Don't know. Can't think straight at the moment. But I want you all to know that I do think about you often. I'm just...tardy, yeah, that's it. Wink

I have lost too many friends and family to that damned disease. My best friend and guitar pickin buddy lost his battle about 4 years ago. We buried him on Christmas eve, and I think of him every time I pick up a guitar. I would like to think that all people who suffer would have a friend like Ono to help them through it, but I suspect there aren't enough people like her to go around. For some reason, right now I am very very sad.

Seems I'm late to the thread, as usual. Had to go to Decatur all day.

ONO, big hugs and prayers for your sadness and Kelly's final days. Deciding when to let go is never easy. I know you made a huge difference in her life and I'm sure she thinks of you playing guitar.

Blue, think of your friend and play like Chet Atkins!!!!!

O No, I am very sorry to hear about this. I know you are a good, strong person, but having to watch someone you love go through this is pretty extreme on the emotions.
I do hope your friend is kept at peace and restful until the end.
Lucky to have you for a friend.

Thanks for letting us know, Blue...I responded at TVT.

We're here if you want to talk. I have a friend who walked through death with another of her friends. It's both a great honor and heartbreaking. Here if you need us. Hug

I thank you all for the kind words and support. Kelly is unconscious now and on heavy doses of morphine. I hope it is keeping her from the pain, both from the cancer and from the bedsore that has been maybe even more painful than the cancer. She can only lie on her back because, well, I don't want to get too graphic, but she has a football sized tumor in her armpit, and must keep her left arm elevated. She can't lie on either side. She's been flat on her back for quite some time now and hasn't really even been able to stand up for a long time.

Blue, I have to run and give a lesson right now, but when I come back I will have a PM message for you from a mutual friend. I'll be back in about an hour.

Blue, I tried to send you a PM yesterday and it LOOKED like it went through, but when I checked "sent items" just now it didn't show up. PM me when you get a chance because you know how to work this thing and it seems that I don't. I know that when I hit reply you will finally get my message.
