My Wedding Anniversary Sonnet[24]

26 Feb


Pedantic Peled plods his path although

His cancer challenges the core of man;

While Pam applies herself to all who know

And medical men just manage as best they can.


A year goes by he opens up his blog

Has chemo’, radio’, 5-F-U, the rest;

She flays and fights her way clear through the fog,

Convinced the Cornerstone or Parp will best.


On ketogenic diet for over a year

Hangs in while searching any better solution;

Don’t drown despite your rending many a tear,

In parallel there’s poison from passive pollution.


No better partners will dance this merry dance

Together hope for medical advance


[24] Celebrating 27 years of marriage today

    Mazeltov on your 27th anniversary.
    Jeanine and I will be married for 27 years as well, come March 17th next month.
    I just wanted to thank you for the chizuk you gave me and the time you spent talking with me at the time of my pancreatic CA diagnosis last November and thereafter. After hearing the doom and gloom prognosis of the GI I was sent to, your ‘counselling’ and time spent speaking with me was like a huge tonic. I have been feeling better day by day and and have had recently had great CT scan results, blood markers way down as well indicating the drugs are effective. May it continue and may it be Hashem’s will that we both go into remission soon.
    Thank you Pam again for all the chizuk,


    Geoffrey Patz

    It’s comments like yours that make me feel that the entire effort of my blog is justified. If there are others out there hesitating to come forward – just know we’re all in this together.

    Oh shucks, sorry to have missed such a special day. A poet, nogal.

    All love
