    Red Dwyer’s Killing us Softly is a monumental book of heartfelt and practical advice for getting through and surviving the onslaught of cancer and death of a spouse.
    With the use of real time journal entries and blog posts, the author reaches out to readers in a unique way to guide them through all the emotions, responsibilities, and processes of being the caretaker of a marriage partner.
    Self-care and the care of the children are her primary focus, as she becomes the sole head of household and cup of love for her dying spouse and surviving family of nine children, three of whom are autistic.
    The book is supremely well-balanced in a way that has never been offered to the public before. The journal entries and blog posts draw us into her intimate life as she grieves privately yet exhibits her strength throughout and beyond the dying process. The focus is on helping the reader maneuver through the seemingly herculean feats of love and physical care which are assigned to the surviving spouse once the diagnosis of cancer is definite.
    From discussion on diagnosis and decisions to be made, through treatment and endgame, Red Dwyer holds our hand and shares with us her advice for not only surviving but also claiming our lives as we traverse this difficult and often hidden journey. She discusses the role of spirituality in the lives of the caretaking spouses, and the details of cancer treatment as a partner in the comfort of her loved one.
    Almost all of us are faced with treatment options at end of life, and many of us don’t face them until we are feeble and sick and not entirely in a place to make those decisions. While cancer has specific decisions to be made, Dwyer discusses the choices we all make when faced with extended treatment of a terminal illness or allowing nature to take its course.
    From diagnosis to hospice care, endgame and beyond, this author will be ultimately helpful to millions, who before this point have persevered and survived in silence.

Return to Regularly Scheduled Programming

[expletive]As you all know, I abhor, despise, loathe coding. I quit writing it nearly two decades ago because I hate it. Sounds like a plan right?

When your server is hacked, typical protocol is to change all passwords on every stinking thing. Sounds simple, right? If I can tell you anything about bugs, code and simple…they never belong in the same sentence.

What should have been routine was in fact a Herculean effort. After more than 12 hours in the mist, as averred by this post in particular, The M3 Blog is officially back in the blogosphere.

Read the full details tonight in the Friday Follies. Yes, I will throw a few hatemails in for good measure, although the ones I sent this week (read today) were pretty hate-filled. *Grins*

Á bientôt!

    • Oh, Christy. It was not I that was hacked. For all the hatemailing masses, there is not the first thing here which is of hacker importance. It was GoDaddy which was hacked. Complete proxy problem. Ugh. Glad to see you today.
