Before I left the coffee shop today I just wanted to let you know that I've been handling cancer well and it's nearly gone. Not having an internet connection at home has been a barrier to keeping up on here. I hope to do better at that.

Another reason I haven't checked in is that both Bello and Envigado have passed away, Bello died last December 11th and Envigado died last St. Patricks Day. Both were 15 years old.

I hope to get on here more often as I have a lot to read on here!  I love you I love you

Arni, I'm so glad to hear from you. I'm overjoyed that you are handling the cancer well. That was an understatement (((((HUGS OF JOY AND LOVE))))

I'm so sorry to hear about Bello and Envigado. (((((MORE HUGS OF LOVE)))) They did have long and love filled lives. Still it's hard.

I'm so sad to hear about Belo and Envigado. I'm very glad to hear you're doing so well. Mixed emotions. Smile Hugs to you, Arni!

Glad you're back, Arni! I was worried that your cancer had gotten worse - so happy to hear the opposite is true.

Also sorry to hear about Belo & Envigado. It's so hard...

Check in when you can!

Well, I'm back...at least on a more frequent and regular basis bounce

Anyway, over the summer I had a setback to put it mildly! Not to worry, it has already been resolved. Last June, I went to the ER thinking I had the severe migraines. This ended up NOT being migraines but a metastesis of my Breast Cancer on my brain in four spots. Right away, they got me on radiation and that Oncologist said that would eradicate the tumors, and wowww, was he right! Last week, I went for a follow-up visit with the Neurosurgeon who consulted me in the ER. The doctor said that he couldn't tell from the day before that I even had brain tumors! He said he had to review older MRI's to even tell that I had tumors!!! I still have chemo 'til February and I'm suffering a bit of lingering disbelief. As near as I can tell that's about it cheers cheers sunny

I'm hoping I can get on here more. The main reasons that I've not been on this board is because I don't have internet at home and the board is a bit awkward at home. However, Facebook is absolutely accessible on my phone and I'm on that a lot. If you could PM me on here your Facebook handles, I'll get in touch on there. I have sooo many questions about how you are doing!

I'll leave you with a pic of a hummingbird that visited my balcony garden last year:

Welcome back. I'm stunned, I'm overjoyed. When I first saw the notification about this thread in my in box my heart went to me throat. I don't know how to describe my feelings when I read about your setback and that you came back from it.

I will PM with my FB account. How are your furkids? I think at one point one of them had passed. Love and prayers to all.

Thought I'd get to the library or coffee shop a lot sooner than this...Uggghhh! Oh well...

To officially keep this on topic, I'm becoming intimately aquainted with headaches...and not too soon either! Before last summer I didn't know the differences between the different kinds. Since I can separate the symptoms of dehydration headaches and caffeine defficiency headaches, I'm less apt to become crazy with worry! bounce

Nowadays, there is just Beans and I. Bello passed last December 10th and Envigado passed last St. Patrick's Day. Soon I'll be starting a new topic in the Pet forum since it is just us. Beans, by the way is doing just fine and continues to bring me toys Smitten

Sue, I look forward to getting your FB info, LOL!

At my last Oncology appointment, I confirmed with Dr. K that I'll be taking chemotherapy indefinitely. Don't worry, this is not a bad as it might seem! The drugs are doing a beautiful job and I feel like I could live out a normal lifespan :-)

All the best to you ARNIgal. You do have a wonderful attitude. Also glad you are able to check in here. Maybe if you can upload your pics to Flickr or the like, then you could link to them here.

I'm glad you're doing well Arni. Attitude has a lot to do with it too, and I'm sure Beans helps with that. She's so sweet to help you with toys, exercise, and laughing at life in general.

At my last Oncology appointment, I confirmed with Dr. K that I'll be getting Chemo until some point way in the future. When it stops depends a lot on future testing...

Thanks BobCat for the tip for picture uploading. I'll do some investigating :-)
