Well, its "officially" cancer

Oh, Polly. I wish I could just reach out and give you a big hug. This is all so tough, and to lose your loving pet at this time is just not fair.

But the road ahead is doable. Tough... but doable. I'm doing both the chemo and radiation at the same time, too, and the combined side effects are charming. (Though, I will say that notwithstanding all the side effects, I would still opt to do both therapies at the same time.) I'm at the halfway point with the chemo (had my 3rd cession last week) and at at the tail end of the radiation. I've got three external cessions on Mon-Tues-Wed and then three cessions of internal.

I have changed through this process. I'm more vocal with doctors about my needs and demand that they listen to me and answer all my questions. I've had to ask people for help (my husband and family) because I just don't have the energy to do everything I used to do. And if this is God's way of telling me to "slow down", well, I got the message!

Someone shared with me yesterday that his wife just passed 15 months since being diagnosed with breast cancer. She, too, had to do the chemo and radiation route. He said that she has changed: Her joys are deeper than in the past. I thought that was a very beautiful and hopeful thing to share.

Good luck to you, Polly, and God bless.

Thank you, everyone, for your wishes and hugs. Today, between pain pills and emptying this *&@(!)#( "leg bag (I still can't pee), wonderful hubby Larry is taking me out to try to find another kitten. Never will replace Maxie, but will help me and Rufus (my older cat) through this time.

Hi Polly....

I am soo sorry that things are not on the bright side yet!! I was able to feel your pain as I read your post. However, being the brightsided person that I usually am, things will get better and look better as you begin to heal and feel better.

Sometimes we need to step back and take a look at the whole picture instead of individual parts. When everything falls into place in the correct order, we do feel much better.

Please take care and rest . You do need to regain your strength.
