    Oh Jeannine. No words of course. Sending love and witness. And Buffy is a great role model for this and all things really. When I was last down with bone surgeries gone wrong, I discovered the audio book versions of the Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden books. James Marsters (Spike) reads them, and it is my fav audio acting and series of all time. Chicago detective urban-fantasy wizard noir. I started w book four, Summer Knight. He seems to hit his stride as writer there. GREAT woman characters beautifully developed over the series. It has helped me through a lot of medical nightmare. And I’ll talk Buffy and the like with you anytime. XOXO Claudia

  • Good god, Jeannine. What an awful rollercoaster you’ve been on (hope that isn’t a nauseating metaphor!). I’m thinking about you and hoping access to new specialists ends up bringing you some genuinely helpful treatment. Let me know if you need anything that a poet 3000 miles away can help with!

  • Wow, have you been through it. Hugs and strength to you, Jeannine.

    You wonderful woman, I am so sorry about this additional diagnosis. And so grateful for you and your work being here in the world. Do whatever you like and can to keep peace within. All my love and hopes are with you.

    Oh. Jeannine, I have such mixed emotions as I worry, and also give thanks for a concrete diagnosis you can fight, sweet Warrior Princess. You can and will live with MS. One of my dearest friends does exactly that, and though it has changed what she can do, it has not limited who she is nor how she lives her life, fully. Hopefully this flare up will be brief and with correct treatment you can resume your marvelous, creative life. My BFF’s brother, a skydiver, surfer, adventure guy. He”s had some flare ups, and then hikes 10 miles. So hang in there Unicorn Princess, draw on the vast love that surrounds you, lean on Glenn, and let me know if there”s ANY way I can be helpful to you. I love you.
    Footnote: I had left knee replacement surgery this morning and I’ve already walked, with a walker, to the bathroom!

    Thank you all for your love and wonderful supportive messages. I’ve been a little out of it on the nausea drugs and the lack of sleep, but really appreciate all of you!

    Oh my, what an ordeal. The good thing is that you have a diagnosis, which is a starting place and a relief, possibly. I’ve been a friend/volunteer/poetry scribe for 12 years to a woman in a nursing home with primary progressive MS, one morning a week and sometimes more. She has amazing knowledge about vitamins, herbs and food, and what causes her pain and problems, and she has tried different diets to see what helps. She goes to the chiropractor once a week (and she’s on Medicaid) and I sometimes give Reiki or send distant Reiki to her. She has a cadre of volunteers to do tasks for her, because she is a great friend and we all love her. Love and good energy to you, Jeannine. I think of you often. <3

  • Jeannine, I’ve been following your travails with sympathy–and I’m glad the diagnosis you received (although nasty) is not as awful as last year’s by far! Have been loving A Field Guide… and am rooting for you out in internet land!
