  1. So sorry to hear this news and pray Tristan’s blood count stabilizes and an opening for an earlier surgery will take place. Hopefully the house can be rented too.
    Sending prayers and healing your way.
    Love and light Lucy Oxenhandler.

    Does Stanford have a place like our Pastega house for patients and families from out of town?

  2. Hey little cousin. You are very well spoken. I am going to pray many times every day. I want you to know that you are both on the track of healing. Nothing is permanet nor forever, so live for today and hope in faith for tomorrow. In 2010 I took care of a lady friend of mine who had stage four pancreatic cancer. The hospital was willing to allow her to spend the last two weeks of her life as long as we took care of her. Hospice took us to the side two different times and told us to stop feading her and keap her medicated until she passed due to all her organs failing. We ignored their direction and with faith we prolonged her life for four extra months. Alot of our times we loose site of how precious and valuable our life is. So stay strong. Have hope and love. I love you little cousin.

    • Thanks, Brandy. So great to hear from you and nice to hear your kind words. So much is possible that we nor doctors even know, so faith is incredibly important for sure. Hope you are well, too. Love you.

  3. Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, On Love:

    (Or, personally, one of the ways I realized I was in love with Amer.)

    When love beckons to you follow him,
    Though his ways are hard and steep.
    And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
    Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him,
    Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
    For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
    Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
    So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth…


  4. Much Love to you both.

    From Jon Kabat- Zinn: Mindfulness isn’t about getting your way or meditating so that you can be better at something. My definition of healing is coming to terms with things as they are, so that you can do whatever you can to optimize your potential, whether you are living with chronic pain or having a baby. You can’t control the universe, so mindfulness is involves learning to cultivate wisdom and equanimity— not passive resignation—in the face of what Zorba the Greek called the full catastrophe of the human condition.
