Yet again, a difficult passage in my cancer treatment has been lit up with the love and concern of the Daily Kos Community.   I can never thank you all enough.  This time it's the autologous stem cell transplant that is the hoped-for long-term knockdown for my blood cancer.  It's not a pleasant experience, but being able to look around my hospital room and see the gifts and feel the thoughts and prayers of so many in this community has made an immense difference.

Anyone who has sent kind words, thoughts, prayers, energies, or anything else positive my way:  don't doubt for a minute that you did something that mattered.

All I can say is that I hope to better soon so I can pass it on.

With love and thanks and special love to teacherken for going through all this with me and keeping my communities in touch

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
