Well -- the surgery is behind me and so, hopefully is the cancer. The doctors gave me really good news about the tumors. The 2 new ones were very small and were primarily on the surface - not even 1/3 into the muscle yet. :chili::chili: The one that I had already been treated for was miniscual and it would have been gone within another month, they're sure. They decided to do one treatment of targeted radiation just to be safe but did not feel that the chemo was necessary. :aktion033::aktion033: At this point, they feel that I won't need any additional treatments and that I will be completely cancer free. Only time will tell, but this is very good news, imho. :chili::chili::chili:

I'm at Ellen's house and I have no idea what I would have done without her and her wonderful family. They're my family too, she always reminds me, and I do feel that they are. Ellen and I have been through so much together over the last almost 40 years. We've laughed, we've cried, we've had fun, we've watched her children grow up, we've watched my fluffs and we've always been there for each other through thick and thin.:wub::wub:

Now, I haven't had the energy to get completely caught up here on SM, but I have seen a few things that I wanted to address:

  • Congratulations on Terra's puppies. They look wonderful and I can't wait for more pictures. Glad that she and the babies are doing well.
  • Donna -- I'm praying that your CT scan is good and will anxiously await the results on Monday. Hang in there. I'm sending prayers your way.
  • How is Hunter? I saw that he was in lots of pain and pray that he's better.
  • How's B&B's leg? I've been praying for her too.
  • And I'm also praying for sweet little Ollie.
  • Sending prayers for Debbie's stepdaugd and to Kat for her Dad too.
And now to sweet little Lucy-Lu. I'm so glad that she's home and is doing good. She's been on my mind so much. I had a dream that she and I were having our surgeries at the very same time and that the very same doctor was operating on us. We both had on fuzzy pink jumpsuits. :HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley: And then Lucy-Lu licked my nose and told me that we would both be alright. Isn't that strange? But somehow it gave me peace and I knew that she was right -- we were both going to come out of the surgery and be fine. Sometimes when I drift in and out of sleep, I still can see sweet little Lucy.

I'm still on pain meds. This has hurt a lot more than I thought it would. :angry::angry: And I've been very nauseaus. But I have the very best medicine I could possibly have -- my fluffs. Right now I'm curled up on the sofa with Lacie, Tilly, Secret and Ellen's Lhasa (my Lhasa as I bred him and placed him with her) Dice. All of them are really being good nurses. :thumbsup::thumbsup: And I have the throw that Sher sent me wrapped around me. I love that throw so much that I brought it with me to CA to recuperate with. :)

And I know that I couldn't have done this without all of my dear SM friends. Your prayers and support have meant the world to me, and I love you all so much I just don't know what to say.:wub::grouphug::grouphug:

As I feel better, I'll try to get caught up on posts and pms. Hugs to all of you.

Lynn - thank God for the great surgery report and that you're home from the hospital. We couldn't be happier. :party: Your friend Ellen and her daughter were awesome keeping us posted on you. We don't know to thank them enough. So glad you've got your three prescriptions (Lacie, Tilly and Secret) right near you so you can take a dose of love whenever you want. Hope the nausea goes away...it's such a lousy feeling. Assuming you've got Compazine. Take your time getting back to SM....you need your rest but know how loved you are and how thrilled we are to hear that you're cancer free. Now missy,just stay that way.:smootch: And only you could be worried about all of us when you came out of surgery. :sLo_grouphug3:

That's wonderful news Lynn I'm so happy for you. Yes I think Ellen definitely qualifies as family and what could give you more comfort that the fluffs? So glad you have them there with you. Take care and let them pamper you...get lots of rest. LOL luckily a vet didn't operate on you, you'd be wearing a cone.

I'm so glad to hear that you are out of the hospital and cancer free. That is such a relief to know. We've been so worried about you. Now, take care of yourself and let those around you take care of you for a bit. Try not to overdo. You know how much pleasure you get from doing for others. It's time to allow someone else that same pleasure. We'll be praying for a speedy recovery. Hugs

Lynn, this is wonderful news! :chili: Sound like you're being taken very good of and you'll be up and running soon. You get lots of rest and don't worry about anything but getting better. I'm glad the pups are helping you rest. I rest best when I have my three laying on the couch with me, mostly because I can't move. :blink:
Take care of yourself. We really miss you.:wub:
hugs

I was thinking about you this afternoon and wondering if you were out of the hospital. Ellen is a friend to treasure. But you know that already. So happy for you also that the Dr's think the cancer is gone.:chili:
