Say a prayer for my boss!!!

Ok, I'm not religious myself but my boss is having surgrey tomorrow (she has Uteran cancer and just found out).
She just told our office on Friday last week and I was in total shock!!!
So if you remember in your busy lives say a prayer cause I would love for her to come back.
As of right now she is out of the office for 2weeks and then she might only be here part-time.

Hope all goes well for her, I'll light a candle. I hope she's going into this with a positive attitude. Negativity, doom & gloom can so hamper recovery.

- that's a tough one, especially if she's a good boss...

- hope everything goes well, all the best, etc.

- i hope everyone here has many, many more miles on the road...

All my best to her. These days, the technology for fighting cancer is really so much better than before. Caught early, hopefully she'll be ok after surgery and a little radiation.

Will keep her in my thoughts. I know the feeling. Keep your spirits up, no matter what.

Positive Attitude and Knowing you can beat it > Technology - especially when fighting cancer imho. Best of luck to her.

Hi Snowy,
I'm very sorry to hear about your boss, isn't she the one who was so impressed by your cycling adventures? I hope she gets the very best medical care and treatments, that will be a tough journey for her, but one she must take. Love and support of friends and family will make a HUGE difference to her. LIVESTRONG for her!

Hi to you and LO.

OMG, SHIFTY WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN???
Thanks for the nice thoughts and yes, I'm very fond of my boss. She and I are like two peas in a pod kind of thing at work.
I have my LIVESTRONG bracelet on ALWAYS but even now it has more meaning.

I've had a very nice summer riding, and with my kiddos, they are back to school now, so I'm getting back to that routine. I'll be around BF more now, on the bike a little less, life is a balancing act sometimes.

Hey telenick, any snow at 10,000 ft yet? Almost time to tele my friend!!

Of course you and your boss are in my thoughts and prayers...keep us up to date.

I lost a really great boss...she quit to spend more time with her family, so noble. But the tool who replaced her was enough to make me quit...to spend more time looking for a different job!

Hey stranger,

We had 'bout two inches this morning ...but it will burn off by mid morning. It was neat seeing all the peaks covered in white on my way into work this morning.

Your bedroom is ready and waiting, my friend. Let me know and I'll hold some comp tickets for ya.

I can't wait.

cancer is a horrid thing (seen a few cases first hand), i wish her all the best.

i have just started training again after 8months after a car crash, it not not nice when people treating you like a kid but she will need support at times.
