Scheduled

We’ve had a candle burning (with a butterfly sticker) today, with prayers that K**ru, Dr H’s scheduler, would be able to get L* on Dr H’s surgery schedule within the next two weeks.

This has come to pass and with a vengeance. L* is scheduled for surgery on Friday morning (yes, less than 48 hours from now).

Thank you to cracked chancla, xolo, bfp, nubian, oso raro, fab, sonrisa, la brown girl, and bint alshama for your many good vibes, prayers, candles, etc.

The courage is all on L*’s part for posting about all this. I would’ve just quietly faded away, because the story was hers and it seemed too much to share. She asked me to post it, and I’m just so grateful for all the love.

I’m making holy candles to Santa Agatha, St Mary of Egypt, Jeanne D’Arc la travestí, Coyolxauhqui, and of course La Virgen de Guadalupe. If you have your own holy helpers, please put in a good word for L*.

L*’s parents are driving up from the Foggy Place to stay in a hotel near Major University Medical Center so they can be on hand Friday a.m.

L* will be staying the night at MUMC, and I’m hoping they’ll let me stay with her.

Right now I feel like running around como una gallina degollada, but I have to finish grading exams so I can turn them in before we kick into high gear.

That's good that L* will be taken care of so soon. Waiting is always very difficult in these matters. I will continue to keep all of you in my thoughts.

While L* is the one facing the treatments, remember that you are also going through this. Be good to yourself and take care yourself too.

Sending you some tlc from the east coast...

I have three candles blessed by the Catholic priest in our parish. Each of them are from the National Cancer Survivor's Day ceremonies from the past three years. I'm going to light them and say a prayer for you both tonight. I have found a lot of peace from Jewish prayers as well, so I will present these as well.

Take care. Please know that you are both strong enough to get through this together. If you find yourself needing to talk to someone who has gone through this before, just leave a message on my blog and I'll be available whenever you need, okay?

I am sending you and L* my thoughts, prayers, and love. I have faith that she will be alright, and so will you.

Best always.

¡Suerte con todo mañana (de hecho, hoy, por que en este momento es viernes)! Me siento seguro que todo va estar bien, y pedí una bendición de José Gregorio (un santo popular en Venezuela, especialmente para la salud) para La L*. Estoy pensamiento en ti y tu pareja amorosa esta noche, con mucho amor y esperanza.

Ktrion, did the surgery go well today? Was it a long procedure? Don't rush to answer any of this. I just want you to know that our prayers and meditations are continuing tonight too. We will be doing it every night until L* is out of the hospital. I had friends that did this for me when I was in the hospital and now I finally have the opportunity to do it for someone else. Even though we are far apart, we (me and my daughter) are imploring the Creator with all we have that things go better than expected.
