Happy news!

Because my liver is toxic—and I don’t feel as bad as that sounds—I get to go back to the Ranch this weekend!

There’s a donor thank-you, and celebration of the Swing Pavilion, on Saturday. I’m going up Friday, will stay with the Swifts (there are people in the usual staff housing), and come back probably Sunday morning. I’ll have to get my labs re-done Sunday, anyway.

They asked me to help ages ago, before the cancer came. If I were still taking infusions, I couldn’t. I’m not all that physically strong now; I’m going to go help register people, and help board members sell cookbooks. (Yes—they’re finally out!) It’s going to be an insane day, but fun.

I’m still waiting to see how my body and the calendar work out as far as BREAD camp, which starts in two weeks. But I love that place so much, and I miss it. I talked with Sean for about 20 minutes on the phone this afternoon, and it just felt so good.

Yay for my toxic liver! Yay for the Ranch!

I am so glad you get to go to the Ranch. I cannot imagine a more healing place for you to be. Enjoy every moment! Say hi to Sean for me.

Kirstin said...

I shall, on both counts! And you're right; it's the most healing place I could possibly be.

God indeed does use all things for good.

Amen, amen my sistah!

Yay indeed -- you might get a link for cookbook sales if you could. This group is pretty into cooking I think.

The Ranch sounds like a place that will do a body good. Soak up the healing energy there.

Hooray! What a perfect healing place. A gift. Enjoy!

Kirstin said...

Susankay, I'll find out about cookbooks. I don't know yet how much they are--but I'd be happy to sell them on the Ranch's behalf, if need be. (There's no mention of pricing on the website.)

Thank you, everybody!

I DON'T have a toxic liver but would like to go to The Ranch, after reading the website!
