She is not yet up to e-mailing, but after this post I am going to read her some of the e-mails and Facebook Posts, so don’t hesitate to write. She is also not up to visitors. Sorry but she would rather see you all when she can have normal conversations and not have tubes sticking out of her. She did not want me to take a regular picture so you will have to make do with the stunning portrait on the right until she feels more herself.
Professional mover Chesed Meals
Now, I want to explain something that is very important to me.
As many of you are aware, I have decided not to request Chesed meals from the Yishuv at this time. http://www.smartsheds.ca/How-to-buy-Microsoft-Office-Access-2007-32-bit-software How to buy Microsoft Office Access 2007 32 bit software This is not, G-d forbid, that I don’t appreciate everyone’s strong desire to help us. Knowing that so many people care and want to help has played a major role in getting us this far. So don’t think that we take for granted all the offers.
BUT — http://www.smartsheds.ca/Techsmith-Camtasia-Studio-8-discount-software Techsmith Camtasia Studio 8 discount software I do not want my children to think of themselves as helpless victims. I want them all to know that they have the ability to step up and help the family. My kids can make a pot of pasta as well as anyone. But doing so is very empowering. http://torontomoverscompany.com/moving-&-storage-containers Moving & storage containers I would rather eat something that one of my kids made for me that may be a tad overcooked or bland than the best gourmet meals on the planet. Sure, we do have days when we can’t manage it. But isn’t that what pizza and burgers are for?
I do not want to dismiss all of your offers out of hand because there http://www.letras10.com/Where-can-i-buy-Adobe-Photoshop-LightRoom-3-64-bit-software Where can i buy Adobe Photoshop LightRoom 3 64 bit software IS something you can do to help (and it may even include chesed meals.)
I need to embarrass our closest friends to tell you this, but I see no other way to go about it. So here goes.
Stella and I have known Josh and Romi Sussman for years. We lived across the street from each other in Potomac, have had similar spiritual journeys, raised kids together, and talked about, planned, and eventualy made Aliya to the same place. We have spent countless Shabbat meals together, just joking around.
But while friendships during good times are fun, it’s during not so good times when you really need them.
From the day that Stella first went to the emergency room, they have been supporting our every need. They have sat with us in the Doctor’s office when we were told that Stella had almost no chance, and they were there when we were told that she did indeed have a chance. I encourage you to read Romi’s account of those days.
Why am I telling you this? Because unlike us, the Sussmans do have little kids at home, lots of them (dozens I think.) They work, take care of their kids, and have somehow found a way to be here for us physically, emotionally and any other sort of way you can think of.
So if I do have a request for you it is this. If they need it, help the Sussmans out. They may need someone to pick a kid up or watch kids at night. They may come back from shlepping me around exhausted and emotionally drained and don’t want to cook. Instead of filling our freezer with meals that we may never get around to eating, call them and ask if you can make them a meal.
I know it may feel better to cook a meal for a family going through a crisis, but we need the Sussmans to be taken care of so that they can take care of us. (Just make sure to e-mail them so that their actual needs can be met.) Stella and I would feel especially grateful if you did so.
As always, thank you for your time, your prayers, and your love.
Since everyone is asking, let me just conclude by telling you that the surgery was the most “radical” option. They removed Stella’s stomach, spleen, gall bladder, and a bunch of other stuff. They also took out a few pints of melted Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.
