CRV - Expect Delays - But Many More Inklings Ahead


amberleadavis

Recommended Posts

As I have mentioned before, I'll be going in for HIPEC surgery on Monday.  Now, I will admit to being a tad scared, but my cancer-survivor mentor, told me that she had more jewelry to buy therefore, she could not let cancer beat her.  In that vein, I have decided I have more inks to try, pens to play with and more CRVs to write.  

 

Therefore, I decided to give myself prior encouragement. I have written CRVs in advance and I am having my daughter send them out during the next week. So even though I won't be writing any letters or making any posts, you all know that I've been INKing of you.

 

Please plan on writing your CRVs and posting them up so that I can see them here on line. I expect that I'll feel well enough to look at ink, even if I'm not up to writing yet.  I'm taking all the letters I have received during the last week with me to the hospital to read as encouragement.

 

Thank you all for the love, prayers, thoughts, letters and encouragement. 

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

As you can see, I wrote out the list for my daughter. I'm adding "clean pens" to the list.  I already packaged the pens to mail out, wrote the letters, asked you all to post, and told you all that I'm taking the letters with me.  

 

I am going to beat this!

Thank you!  I've made great progress emptying out my pens.  :)

I look forward to your triumphant return to us. 🤗

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

You have every reason to a tad scared and then some, but what really matters is just getting through it and coming back to draw more wild inky pictures. Good luck. Best wishes. And big hugs.

It's all about the greys...

I don’t blame you for being a little scared. That’s only human. You are strong, and you will beat it.

You are a formidable woman!  I just received CRVs and yet you are busy doing more and even cleaning all your pens (and/or delegating to the family!).  

 

May your surgery go as smoothly as your favorite pen and ink combination!

Thinking about @amberleadavis and hoping her surgery is going well today. Knowing she will be back to review inks, and being part of our great forum.

I think we're all pondering the same thing today!  Posted to her today!

I got a letter in the mail to her today as well. I put code wheels in it, thinking she and her kids would maybe enjoy them.

Seen this not before today - @amberleadavis, may the force of the bright side of inks be with you!

Looking forward to read more from you! 👍✍️

One life!

I’m hoping to hear good news about Amber’s surgery.  My nephew had surgery yesterday as well. His went good.

Sorry I didn't post before - just saw this.

 

When you are on the other end of this surgery and ready to start interacting with folks I will mail a CRV from the other side of the world. Message me your address!

 

I went through a two year period with seven major surgeries. My attitude was 'This is the work I need to do to get myself healthy and keep on living. Get it done!' I spoiled myself with one or two ice cream shakes each day of the acute recovery periods. A little thing to look forward to. (Plus I needed to gain weight during the recoveries anyway ...)

Script nib for writing screenplays. • Fine nib for my best writing. • Extra fine for my *very* best writing. • Medium for requesting a séance. • Bold for adventure stories. • Manifold for many various types of writing. • Coarse for indignant letters. • Oblique for making a point in a roundabout way. • Italic when I'm inclined. • Stub for when I intend to leave a manuscript unfinis

I am out of surgery (obvoiusly) and wanted you to know that my kid is bringing over pens.  :)
