Dear Louise - I  am thinking of you today.  I ask for grace to comfort you and your family - to carry you gracefully through this part and the future, and grace for your quick healing. May all those around you providing your care also be held and cared for. I send you love and many good wishes for your optimum health and optimum recovery.

Hey! The Thom Hartmann show

Hey! The Thom Hartmann show keeps me sane.

I think it's super cool that Thom's wife is with him on his projects. He's lucky. All the best.

Best wishes for a full and quick recovery.  You wouldn't be the same without her.  We all need that someone special to make us special.

Dearest Louise.... a sister

Dearest Louise.... a sister in breast cancer.  I also had breast cancer in 2007, caught early, mastectomy, went through a brief chemo treatment, and in the 5th and final year of hormone blocking drug.  I remain cancer free but continue to be vigilant.  I am so sorry you have had to join the club but you will be ok.  There are millions of women who have walked this path and are alive today because they were able to catch this disease in its early stage.  I will be thinking of you every day and praying/sending positive vibes for your quick recovery.  You have lots of folks wishing you the very best.  Be strong and march through the upcoming treatment like a true warrior.  One of my friends told me the chemotherapy is "Not your mother's chemotherapy."  It has been made much more tolerable and discomforts minimized.  Don't worry, you will be ok and you will be a wonderful supporter of early detection.  Take care, Sharon

No apologies necessary for

No apologies necessary for being absent, Thom ... Louise is a major part of the foundation that the Thom Hartmann show family rests on. Even those of us who are not religious are praying for her and for you also.

Take as much time off as Louise needs, when ever she needs you ... and give her a hug for us, in a spot where it doesn't hurt.

Thanks to both of you for all you do for us.

Thoughts and prayers to the

Thoughts and prayers to the Hartmann family.  Louise, I was so very sorry to hear of this and hope it goes perfectly.  I've always admired you as the "quiet" half of a true and important partnership that has made a difference for so many of us in this country.  We need you both.  God speed your journey back into full health.

Louise, Peace and blessings. 


Peace and blessings.  Take plenty of vitamins, also take a calcium supplement.  Flaxseed, the seeds not the oil, is also a natural curative for breast cancer.  Stay strong.  Peace

I had not realized until

I had not realized until today that Louise was back on the job ... great news, whenever it comes.  I'm not surprised that she is back to work, being the trooper that she is.  Today was just the first time in a long while that I clicked on the "Live Blog" page for the radio show, and there it was ...

Thanks to everyone for

Thanks to everyone for keeping me in your thoughts, Except for one comment line call (conservative?) hoping I would kick the bucket - the calls and messages have been heartwarming to me. People have sent me prayers and knitted me hats for my soon to be bald noggin. Thank you all. Louise

Hi Louise,you`re very very welcome and the best of everything to you again. As for the negative,you can believe the numbers that are positive for you,the opposite numbers are for the negative to kicking the bucket.This is a good example of good people never passing,but bad people, you would never know they were alive.

yes wonderfull friends of the

yes wonderfull friends of the world,we hurt when u hurt,prayers went up quickly when we heard the news.I had such a scare so I relate to the strange place.Wondering why we havent advanced from such cures. I respect Susan Somers as she shared her experience. I have taken vit. E reliogiosly for over a decade,since I had lumpy swollen breast syndrom.It has always worked to alleviate the problem of inflamation.I find Ibeprophen a great anti=inflamitory,and read that it has been recognised as such relating to cancer .Just needed to share my thoughts of concern.Wishing the best in all,u are blessed and u bless us, gracias

Dear Louise;

Cheering " Get Well" from Scappoose, Oregon!  We pray that each day delights you as you see yourself heal and grow stronger.  Yesterday my Wife saw someone moving their floating home in the Willamette by having Grandpa sit on the front porch and yell at the driver in the boathouse who was pushing it!  Thought you would enjoy that!

I noticed Mike Pap was filling in for Thom this week and I had a feeling it was because of Louise's health issues. I am wishing her,Thom and their whole family well. You are very special people and I only wish there were more people like you.

take care, Troy in Minnesota "AM950 supporter".

I don't recall anything said

I don't recall anything said but Thom's break could also be that we have a couple of conventions coming up he may be doing the show from and this would be an excellent time to take a break and especially spend more time with Louise.

Like many others I'm sure, I

Like many others I'm sure, I was wondering what happend to Thom.  He's been gone for over 2 weeks now and I haven't heard the stand-in hosts tell us what is happening.  If it is because of Louise's health, I wish her and the entire family the very best and a speedy recovery.

On a side note, I really enjoy Mike Pap and wish his show was during the weekdays when I listen to talk radio.

Heard Thom say on today's

Heard Thom say on today's show that Louise had her last chemo treatment today. That is great news, and indicates that this is the last time she'll have to deal with the affects of the chemo treatments.

Beginning tomorrow, she'll be feeling better and stronger as her recovery continues.

Good luck to both of you.

Thanks for all you do for us, the Thom Hartmann Show family of listeners , viewers, and readers.

This is just another word of

This is just another word of encouragement for Louise, Thom and the family.  We're thinking about you and praying for you in our own way.  Louise, remember the latest research shows you can be grouchy and not effect your chances of recovery.  Use your energy for recovery, not being polite.
