cancer.jpg As many of you know, Jane Hamsher has breast cancer and is scheduled for surgery Thursday (correction). FDL had to shut down the comment section so you can leave one on the new thread here. I know in my heart that she'll be at the Libby trial faster than a speeding bullet and I hope by her staying with me---it has brought her a small measure of comfort before she goes in for treatment.

I broke out Buffy The Vampire Slayer and we've been watching some episodes in between her doctor visits. Yes, she's an Angel and Buffy fan too, (She digs Spike) and we've had some incredible pretzel rolls and Ben & Jerry's ice cream. We've been close friends almost from the beginning of our blogging days and I couldn't have been happier that she's here with me. The whole blogosphere is praying for her and wishing her all the best and she has had a smile on her face for much of her stay so far. I'm not that eloquent a writer to adequately express myself at times like these--so I thought I would use this time to say that if you ever have the chance to help somebody---please don't hesitate. I've been lucky to have people help me when I've needed it and it's nice to pay it forward, especially for someone like Jane.

I'll echo Duncan's fine words.

Still, like many people, when faced with awful news I plea for miraculous fortune. Hope is not a plan, but hope is hope. So let's hope for Jane.

I won't be posting much myself in the coming days, as you know. Please link all the posts about Jane that you find in the comment section. It would be nice to keep them in one thread....

Can you help us out?
