Disappearance.....

My recent disappearance had nothing to do with my cancer.

We simply did not have access to the internet for a week or so.

Finally, we took advantage of someone who offered to help us and put him in charge of getting us back on line.

Voila!

Here I am!

That said, my "situation" is not that great.  We still have hope, but things are not that great.

So we appreciate any extra davening and any extra mitzvot performed for our merit.

As I know more, I will keep you posted.

For now, we know that my liver is not functioning well, I finished this round of Whole Brain Radiation (today I had my last WBR treatment), and we are waiting for more blood tests (this Wednesday) before making any decisions.

In short, cancer did not cause the delay in communication, but the technical problems that we have been experiencing certainly include cancer complication.



Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,
RivkA

I so wish there was more I could do to help you. If you ever think of anything - please let me know.

Will certainly dedicate any good deed and definitely my prayers in your merit.

I miss you!

Happy you're back in the blogosphere but sorry to hear you're not well. Sending prayers your way.

Jennifer in MamaLand said...

Cancer sure sounds like the mother of all technical difficulties...
Anyway, nice to see you online; we'll keep davening for you (my dd - "who IS that person?" "Just a lady who lives in Israel.").

Bernie said...

I was a bit concerned when you hadn't posted, so glad you are okay. Am keeping you in my heart and prayers always.....:-) Hugs

Glad you are back online. Once again, so so sorry for the underlying reason for this blog. Wishing you a refuah shleimah and will try to do extra for you - long-distance. LOL. Na'amah

Henya said...

So happy to hear from you. Hugs, good thoughts and thechilim coming from here.

Batya said...

Refuah shleimah! Keep up the fight. We're on your team!

mother in israel said...

Glad to see you back, RivkA. Thinking of you.

Liba said...

I have been thinking of you often and am sorry you are still having such technically difficulties.

I am davening for you.

There is an English speaking Beit Natan group starting tomorrow night that I am considering attending. I "just" have to find a babysitter.

Love to you,

Liba

clio said...

Well, I was worried about your silence, and will definitely pray for you.

Karen said...

I'm just a stranger in NJ who follows your blog. I had also been worried when I didn't see any recent posts. I am still worried, but glad the delay was mostly due to internet troubles.
Thinking of you and your family.

I am so glad to see you back, RivkA. I am always thinking of you.
God bless you.

Merry said...

Oh!Karin, my dearest RivkA!
May Lord God Almighty in all His power, might, and strength. Give you breath and life. I pray that the Lord of Heaven and Earth would part the waters for you to be healed.

I apologize that I have not been following. I have been going for tests myself. They found fibroids in me. My blogsite changed system and so for a while, I was not able to write myself.

May the joy and peace of the Lord be upon you!
Sincerely always,
Karen

Coming out of lurking to let you know a long time reader is praying for you!

Peace.

Sarah said...

RivkA-- I want to see you. Can we come up tomorrow afternoon/evening? Can I just take this opportunity to say CANCER SUCKS.
You are in my heart.

rivkayael said...

I am davening for you. Does learning a modern commentator (Amos Chacham) on sefer Tehillim count for learning in your merit?

Chavab1 said...

Rivka, sorry I've been so out of touch. I think of you all the time. Marc and I are davening hard. Bli neder, will call soon. Would love to come visit, if you are up for it, even without any cleaning.

Rivka,
I'm so glad to see that you've posted again despite the circumstances.

I just wanted to take this time to let you know that you are the most amazing and brave woman I have ever met. You continue to dazzle me with your strength and determination. I admire you so much.
Please don't ever give up hope- Hashem has a mysterious way of making miracles happen.

Doctors don't know everything. You are one of the most stubborn people I know. And a great Mommy, by the way, despite all of the difficulties.
We pray that you stabilize, that you get well, that you are not afraid.

clio said...

Every day I check to see if RivkA might have come back on line, and every day I send up prayers that her absence is due to technical difficulties. If anyone knows anything about how she's doing, maybe that person could post? In prayer with all of you!

עידית said...

I Called RivkA about 2 hours, her daughter said she's not at home.
I know she had an appointment for a holistic treatment today, don't know if she made it

also sending prayers every day
