I've escaped whatever nightmarish loginloop error that was holding my account hostage! I was about ready to ask Fearless Leader for permission to create a whole new account just to get around it!
All is... well-ish. I've completed a round of chemo and radiation, with minimal nasty side effects, so I count myself very very lucky. The radiation oncologist is essentially done with me for now, we are waiting on a follow-up with the chemo specialist, and waiting on a consult with my surgeon as recommended by the radiation guy. He found some strictures on my last CT scan that he feels are best addressed surgically.
The dogs are well and happy, if bored and a little cabin-fevery. A few times when I've been at my worst I have sent them away to stay with A for a few days, and it is a great comfort to have that safety net in place not just in hospitalized crisis times but even for the occasional relief from the responsibility. If I can't provide my own standard of care, the guilt becomes crippling on top of the real problems, so it's huge to have a second home for them where they are not just safe and tended to, but happy and loved.
enough about us, fill me in, catch me up, send me links to threads I shouldn't miss, has anyone heard from Kevin?
