4 day trip to the middle of WA with the senior center, mtns. Enjoyed mtn views, a cowboy dinner, seeing the cowboy town of Winthrop.

Holly-thoughtful you are to remember a grieving person 3 -4 months later. Very caring, needed, appreciated.

Revelation comes to mind when I learn/hear current events. As a believer in Jesus Christ, I am also reminded of the Great Commission. Get the Word, how others react is up to them. My responsibility is to share the Good News. Tried to write this in the above Post, writing this has been a challenge as the evil one tries you from hearing the Good News. It's about a relationship, not religion.

Great to return home, read each of your Posts.

Bella, So sorry to hear about your daughter's diagnosis. It sounds like she has caught it fairly early and this is a good thing. They are doing so much better these days with lots of progress. Was out two weeks ago celebrating a b/c survivor's birthday, she had it about 20 years ago. This was her 90th b-day!

Meo So happy to hear about your new kitty, Marigold! Can't wait to see her pic! You s/b able to take her pic., put it in some file, and just copy and then paste it in your post here on c/d. Is she an orange tabby? Sounds like she is settling in nicely. Happy for both of you.

Jim, thank you for sharing your post with the flag and the Harvest Moon. It is beautiful! Today at my brother's Special Needs club meeting, we had a couple who play guitars and sing. And this morning I requested the song "Harvest Moon" and they played it!! What a treat!

Thanks Holly

Right now she is mad at me because I gave her flea medication (because she'd been at the pound) & then vacuumed, which I was not aware she was scared of.

She's sleeping a lot but I think a lot of it is because she was in a cage for so long & now has a queen sized bed to relax on.

Ah, I spoke too soon. She's just jumped up for a cuddle while I'm in my chair.

Holly-A treat indeed, am hearing the words; you are special to attend the meeting with your special brother. Two of my granddaughters are Special (needs), and all 4 grandchildren Very unique in their own way.

Meo, thank you for continuing, g to tell us about Miss Marigold, your getting to know each other. Was shown a picture of a calico---her husband named it Miss Kitty. The wife guessed correctly, after the woman on Gunsmoke !

I'm very touched by the many sympathetic and supportive replies. The presence of many kind, knowledgeable and caring people is the reason for my visit and participation at cd retirement forum.

We just got some very promising prognostic from my sister, a very experienced family physician. Here is what she wrote to my daughter after reviewing her lab report:

"You have both ER and PR positive, wonderful. HER2 is pending. If the whole mass is 1.2cm then you are grade 2A, better prognosis than 2B. We need to find out your type of insurance: PPO vs HMO. If HMO you must go to specialists within your local area and in the panel. If PPO you can go to any place.

We can talk about it later. So far the news is good.

As you are young less than 55 y/o, you will respond well to Tamoxifen taken AFTER surgery and poss. radiation (because of 1 lymph node involved). You will need to take for 5 years.
They may recommend removal of ovaries to stop hormonal release (estrogen and progesterone), you may have to consider not having children in the future or adoption. We can talk more about it. Will continue praying for you. "

My daughter was very glad and relieved to learn about her condition from my sister. So far, her doctor only sent her the lab report and she will not have an appointment with the doctor until the 16th.

We are still in Nice, France and will fly back to NY tomorrow. We will book a flight to Boise when we know the surgery date. I'm very thankful that she has a caring fiancée by her side and the wonderful support that we have received from many people.

Bella, I was diagnosed with stage 1 in 1989 in my mid-40's. I had all the treatments of the time, including heavy duty chemo. So far so good.

Bella, positive thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter. I went through it too, 17 years ago. She should do everything possible and also never let a negative thought cross her mind. Do whatever is necessary, even mastectomy--which isn't so bad these days with the reconstructive techniques they have now. I pray that all will be well.
