If you didn’t read my Saturday post, please go back and do that. I don’t think I’ve written anything here more important to me than that one. Just a little more nudity today, and then I promise to put my clothes back on and get back to the goofy. I know that you are praying for Deb, and more importantly, she knows it. She says she feels it. That’s what we wanted. Please take a moment and let yourself feel damned good about that. Now, you wanna feel even better? Don’t stop. Keep praying. Today is the stem cell transplant. It won’t all be over today. In fact, today is the beginning of the journey. I lifted this comment from Nikki, on Saturday’s post:

While the transplant is Monday, ‘that part is easy,’ it is merely a transfusion. We have to pray it takes, we have to pray her body does not reject her brother’s cells. We have to pray she does not get a bad case of graft vs host. The [possibilities for] complications are infinite . . .

In addition to being a rock star (lead singer of Nikki and the Sisters), Nikki is an M.D., (isn’t she an overachieving little somebody?) so she knows what she’s talking about.

I kept going to Deb’s through the weekend, and seeing people I know, and love, seeing YOU there. I wish you could feel inside my heart for just a moment, to know how much that meant to me. I would hug you all if I could. I would push Beyonce out of the way to lick your faces, if I could. I mean, you know, unless you’d have me arrested for that. I was so happy to see names that I know. And then, I saw names that I’d never even heard or seen here, saying they lurk on my site, and are “coming out” at Deb’s. Again, I don’t have words for how happy that made me. JEANNIE? You MADE. MY. DAY.

Anyhow, you know I like to sing here. And I woke up thinking of you all, and thinking, you made me so very happy . . . I just want to thank you . . . and then I thought, “Hey, there’s an old song about that!” And sure enough, I give you Blood, Sweat and Tears . . . not all of the lyrics fit you all, but take what you can use — and for those of you who don’t like any of them, notice that I left in the instrumental interlude 🙂


I lost at love before
Got mad and closed the door
But you said “Try, just once more”

I chose you for the one
Now we’re having so much fun
You treated me so kind
I’m about to lose my mind
You made me so very happy
I’m so glad you came into my life

The others were untrue
But when it came to loving you
I’d spend my whole life with you

‘Cause you came and you took control
You touched my very soul
You always showed me that
Loving you is where it’s at
You made me so very happy
I’m so glad you came into my life
Thank you, baby

I love you so much you see
You’re even in my dreams
I can hear you
I can hear you callin’ me
I’m so in love with you
All I ever want to do is
Thank you baby, thank you baby

[Instrumental Interlude]

You made me so very happy
I’m so glad you came into my life
You made me so very happy
You made me so so, so very happy, baby
I’m so glad you came
Into my life

And if you’re newish here and you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about with the nude and the naked (and whyGodwhy won’t she put the oranges away?!), go here and read about naked blogging.

Thank you, dear friends. God bless you. XOXOX
