Update on Jerry Marcom

Dear Friends,

I know you have been wanting more news about Jerry so here is the latest update. When I asked him what he wanted to share he said to tell you that he now has a big hole in his head.  Lots of space in there these days. Jerry has been recovering from his brain surgery very well these last few weeks.  His physical recovery from the surgery is going well and the PT evaluating him in order to leave the hospital wanted to take his picture to show what she wished all her patients could do.  He was doing a bit of yoga in the hall, keeping things moving as we yogis like to do.  He has also been able to continue to offer very meaningful rituals to honor Martha’s life including getting some of her ashes up onto Mt Shasta with the help of Tom Griffith and many others. He has had time to make beautiful heartfelt, and in some cases miraculous connections with friends, family and people showing up from his past. He has been able to be medically useful by participating in a study requiring a series of MRIs that may help doctors to better understand these types of tumors. He and family have figured out what help he needs to stay at home and he is very relieved and grateful to have that in place. He even took time to come to our Urban Zen training session and support the new trainees. He has been able to return to Morning Mysore with a very modified practice. His doctors explained his limitations and he and dear friend Rhonda Kuster worked out what that meant for a daily routine. This practice brings him much pleasure and balance and I’m guessing that others in the room are inspired to see him there doing what he can. He has recently been able to spend time at his cabin at Lake Logan--long a refuge and sanctuary for him. 

He will start radiation soon. Doctors know that the type of tumor he has responds well to radiation and we hope that is true in his case. He will be taking an oral chemotherapy at the same time as well. He wants you to know he is doing well, but is not able to return to all the previous activities he did before the surgery. He continues to need lots of rest and quiet. He is not driving and not going out much. He sends his love.

As for ways you can help: Do your own practice and dedicate the practice to Jerry and everyone else in need. Send Reiki and blessings his way.  Cards and notes can be sent to him care of Yoga on High. 

Jerry and his whole family are grateful for your love and support.  

Thank you so much,
Marcia
