Back in 2011 the week that I was first diagnosed with cancer I was also told I needed a hearing aid, and my dog died.


The week in 2014 that I was told my cancer was back and now stage 4 another of our dogs died.

The fact that our sweet timid Jesse died this weekend made Mondays mammogram a little anxiety inducing. I went back for a followup on the last mammogram two weeks ago. They said there was a problem with the images of my dense tissue on my left breast. This did not surprise me because she had trouble working around my port. On monday I went in for  the followup and she did a lot of images of the left and then said “Alright let us see if we can get some better pictures of those spots on the right” Uh…..what spots? Apparently someone forgot to mention that they found a cluster of spots in my right breast very close to the chest wall. Took more pictures  and the Dr labeled them as probable benign calcifications. Back in six months. I am really a little nervous about seeing my Infectious Disease doctor on Thursday.  Hopefully nothing new there!

My daughter and I are going away for an overnight on Saturday. Looking forward to spending time with her. I am so lucky that I love her so much.

    1. Thank you for asking. She had a weird moment last Thursday. She was eating and she stopped and she looked scared and she ran to her bed. After about thirty minutes she went back to eating. On Friday she wasn’t hersself, she slept all day and she didn’t eat her dinner. She just didn’t look right. By Saturday we knew something was quite wrong, she was still walking around but not right. We thought she had maybe had a stroke. Also realized she hadn’t barked in two days. Took her to the vet on Sunday and they think it was right side heart failure. She had so much fluid in her chest they couldn’t hear her heart beat. So it was really not a difficult decision after that. 🙁
      She went easily. It certainly wasn’t easy but we’ve been preparing for a long time. We even took her bed with us so she was as comfortable as she could be.

Don’t leave without saying something!
