Tomorrow my daughter gets the results of her latest MRI.
Hoping for the best results on your daughters tests! Keeping you both in prayers...

Chopper - slips happen because of life. Don't worry about them, just start a new day. (I need to tell myself that one alot).

Addie - prayers for you and your daughter. I hope all goes well.

Simonbaker - That is awesome! You are doing so well!

I took Violet to the off leash dog park today! By myself! She has been so anxious lately because she is missing Joie. And I am just not able to take her on walks with the leash - I am so afraid she will pull me over and that would be disastrous.

We went around once (about 30 minutes which included stopping to talk to a couple while Violet played with their dogs!) and each of us went at our own pace which got her energy out and I was able to get some real aerobic exercise without overdoing it. If I can't get to the pool, I think I will do this more often - it is good for both of us physically and we both can socialize with others

I really am feeling better tonight - not so much pain or swelling. I think it is partly the weather, the exercise and I am eating better.

Thank you LP.

Sounds like you may have found a partial answer to your heath difficulties. I hope you find your way. Fighting pain can be exhausting as well I know. Pets have a way of leading us into better health even if it is only mental. The weather is slowly improving, so you will be able to get out more each day. Good luck.

Thanks, Addie. Your words mean a lot.

Simonbaker, I forgot to mention I am praying for a good doctor's appointment. Please let us know what happens.

After my shameful eating frenzy last week on vacation, I am getting back on track! I'm so bloated, I'm not weighing myself for 2 weeks so that I can lose the water weight and let my body get back even, so I know where I am.

I really want to lose a bit more before our wedding in August.

Don't beat yourself up, Bakechef. It's soooo hard to be good on vacation, I carted home a few extra pounds myself! Sometimes diets need a vacation too.

The doctor told my daughter that they used to have folks with her kind of cancer on chemo for three years minimum. They are looking for one year to eighteen months for her. There was no change in her MRI from the last one. But that is good. There was no increase in the cancer either. There is still some swelling of her brain from the surgery. That is normal. They are now looking at ten months for the next change. She also discussed some other health problems she has been having that has nothing to do with the cancer. (That is a hard word to type.) So he is going to call some of the experts in the fields she needs and have them take her right away. Her spirits are still up. And I guess that is all I can ask at this time.

Thank you all so much for the angels. I know they are watching over her.
