Subject: Raven Update 5/17/13

Hey Guys, Busy week coming up. Tomorrow they are putting my under Versed and manually attempting to drain the Seroma's, and to obtain a new sample to see if the MRSA is gone (they may put another drain in). Tuesday I meet with my family doctor to get started on Insulin due to the Diabetes I now have from the chemo. Wednesday I meet with the Infectious control doctor regarding the MRSA they found in my chest. Praying that things go well. John and I are down in the dumps here lately, but I have put my trust in God's hands. I know he is with me. I feel him with me. Learning to take it one day at a time as much as possible. Things have gone so far south here lately, that it really is hard to fake those smiles. It really is a day by day struggle, and at times, you lose all hope. I'm a hard ship to sink, so please know that as bad as things have been, I'm still trying to beat the odds. Thank you for such lovely posts. They are absolutely beautiful. God bless you for them.

On a note I never thought I would ever have to revisit again, most of you know how I feel about being added to Facebook groups without my consent or knowledge. It's always been a huge pet peeve of mine, and people have respected this for a very long time now after several public discussions on the matter out here, but it's happening again. If you have the energy to scroll (I definitely do not), you will eventually find one of three large discussions we had on this matter with many angry that Facebook allows people to do this. You should never be added or forced into a group, whether you like what the group is doing or not. Please do not add me to groups without my consent, no matter what the subject matter. I know that most of you would never do this, but I just found myself added to a group without my knowledge or consent, and it placed me in a very awkward position that I simply don't have the energy for with all that I am going through (it's the last thing I need at a time like this). There is apparently a lot of discord out there over these groups, and to say that I want no involvement in any of this, would be a gross understatement. If you truly care about me and what I am facing, you will kindly leave me out of all of this. I cannot deal with things like this when I am fighting for my life. I pray that both sides get things worked out eventually, but I cannot take part in any of this for what should be very obvious reasons. I have friends on both sides and pray that things get worked out. I would greatly appreciate it if you would please leave me out of all of this. I am fighting a much larger war here at home. Thank you...............

As for the Emmy's, my first smile all weekend! It was actually fun this year! Seeing George Lucas was such an honor! I was practically jumping up and down over Julie Marie Berman's win as I adore her (miss her terribly). I was rooting so hard for Bradford Anderson, and was incredibly disappointed to not see him take home the gold. He is a much beloved actor with an almost genius way of portraying Spinelli. He is so incredibly gifted and adorable. This years was better than last year and it left me smiling to see our beloved genre featured so prominently again. Daytime drama's are indeed such a huge part of our culture. Smiles all round this evening (trust me, I needed those smiles). Disappointed to see GH get the shaft, but happy just to see Julie win, and to see this genre feel so alive again.

I love you guys with every breath I take. I promise to keep you posted as always. I've never used Insulin before so this should be interesting. Thank you for all the love and advice. You are truly dear to me. I hoped everyone has a wonderful week. Much love to you..........XOXOXOI............

Sorry, I'm still living in May! My update should have read 6/17/13, not 5/17/13.

You are so strong, God Bless You. I have diabetes, and I can tell you that getting your sugars under control with the help of insulin, isn't as daunting as it seems. You will have to test your sugars maybe more than you do now, but that is how you will know if you need to cover with insulin. I do know from experience, when dealing with high sugars for a length of time, it affects your body in a lot of ways, you have a lot going on as it is. So getting your sugars under control is something that you and your Dr. can do together... I wish you all the best in this fight you are dealing with besides your high sugars. As someone who admires your strength, your courage, your goodness. I hope there is a miracle for you, this world sure could use a lot more people like you Raven. I understand how you are feeling about people using your name or however you want to say what they are doing, I feel as you do... It is just plain wrong! You are fighting for your life, no one should be using you or your name for anything, never mind without permission, ugh!
Keep your chin up, you and John are in my prayers every night.
Wishing you only the best... Barbara
