On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Throwing light on the matter

I tried the second challenge in the Yahoo Everyday Matters group, Draw a lamp. The proportions are off, I can see that now, but I tried and I tried!

Bit by bit we're seeing some light on Demi's health concerns. I've received many e-mails from other puppy raisers and participants involved with Canine Companions for Independence. Those who are more familiar with renal dysplasia have referred me to specialists in both western and adjunct therapies.

Demi is still with her family and is working as a companion to her disabled child. The official exchange will be on Monday -- our joy, their grief. We haven't made any medical decisions yet and will make them with the staff of Canine Companions for Independence. We will keep the family updated. And I'll probably be giving all of you more information that you want or need so I hope you will be patient. Thank heavens I draw every day. It's an enormous stress reducer, frustrating as it is to have a lamp tilt strangely with a too-small shade!
