On the Roller Coaster Again

One More Day

Last night I had a crazy dream.
A wish was granted just for me,
It could be for anything.
I didn't ask for money,
Or a mansion in Malibu,
I simply wished for one more day with you!

One more day, one more time,
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied.
But then again, I know what it would do,
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you
One more day...........

First thing I'd do is pray for time to crawl.
I'd unplug the telephone and keep the TV off.
I'd hold you every second,
Say a million I love you’s,
That's what I'd do with one more day with you.

One more day, one more time,
One more sunset maybe I'd be satisfied.
But then again I know what it would do,
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you.

One more day, one more time,
One more sunset maybe I'd be satisfied.
But then again I know what it would do,
Leave me wishing still for one more day.
Leave me wishing still for one more day.
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you.

It's been another tough week for Julie. She's had a high fever due to some infection and was put on "gorilla drugs" to fight it. They have they own brand of havoc to wreek on her system, and it's almost more than she can endure. Radiation was stopped until the infection clears up, which doesn't show signs of happening any time soon. Julie says she doesn't want to start it up again once she's cleared to do so, because it makes her so tired she can barely function. She doesn't want to work on wedding plans either. The high point of the week was going for a ride in the Jeep on another beautiful, sunny day.

For the first time since I've known her, she's really discouraged. (I think it had something to do with Mackie's birthday, but she says no.) I don't know what to do to encourage her to keep fighting. I wish I had better news to report, but I don't. I'm sorry.

Jason.....bless your hearts! Just keep loving her as you do. The fight has to come from within here. I've been through radiation three times.....and I do know how tired it can make you. The infections don't help matters at all. Please let her know that I'm praying for her.....and that we really care about her here.

Hang in there, Julz. If anyone can do this, you can! As always, you're in my thoughts and prayers. You too, Jason.


Remember the past but do not dwell there.
Face the future where all our hopes stand.

Jason you don't need appologize! Though I do wish the news was better.......

I too wish I had the magic pill or words or wand or anything..... I soo wish I could take her stuggles upon myself and relieve her for at least a bit....

I know the feelings of being so beaten down... it becomes harder and harder to see anything positive..... a fruitless and helpless feeling

Tell my sweet Julie that if she does not get better soon I am coming out there personally to kick her ass back to health! LOL LOL

Julie.... you know I am still holding your hand.... tighter than ever now... holding on for dear life... hoping and praying to give you my strength... to allow you to lean on me when you need me

Hang I there my sweet Julie!!

Not sure if you remember this... but I do.... when we first began our friendship you talked about taking a road trip cross country down south..... that sounds sooo good to me about now! To come out there and steal you away and experience an oddessey together!!

Julie I care so deeply about you!!

I am praying and rooting for you every day!

(ps... not to worry Jason... my road trip intentions are only for love of a friend.. I would never come between you two!! LOL LOL LOL )

Never give up hope, and never surrender to the ailments that befall you. You are always present in the minds and hearts of those who you have befriended.

In such a struggle there is likely to come a time when things seem too much to bear, when one is tested to the limit of endurance. But Julie's will to live can and will pull her through!

All my best to better and better times ahead.
