    I just have to let everyone know what an incredible thing Wildyard did for me. She had read about my breast cancer and knew I had no quilt of my own for my chemo sessions (the only ones I have made so far have been given away as presents), so, what did I find in the mail today but the most beautiful horse-themed lap quilt (she obviously noted that I have more than a few horses, lol).

    I still can't believe that she went to so much trouble for a complete stranger, but this quilt is now one of my most prized possessions - both for its beauty and the love that went into it.

    Wildyard - you are a very special person and the world is a better place because of your presence in it.

    Thanks for all the good wishes. Apparently, there are a few other sneaky people on this board who knew what Wildyard was up to, but they all kept the secret ;-)

    Since Wildyard already has some photos, I am going to let her post them so you can all see what a great job she did :-)

    So far, I have had one full chemo session and one mini session, and no major side effects so far, so I feel very fortunate.

    I have also had a lot of support from p38flygirl, Furza Flyin and Gabrielle's Mimi. GM is local and was kind enough to meet with me on a few occasions and fill me in on what to expect. She is another very special lady. p38flygirl is just tough beyond belief and, as a fellow pilot, I would love to meet her some day.

    I belong to several boards aimed at a variety of interests, and the kindness and caring shown on this board is exceptional.
