I am so sorry this is happening to you again, TZ. {{squish}} But we all know you are strong and will get through this.

Thanks, Laser. I'm trying not to let it affect my mood too much, but so far I'm failing miserably.

Re: Ziyal's medical update :)

I know that when someone says "try to not let it get you down" it can often have the opposite effect, as someone else can not know what you are going through. But please know that you have a lot of people thinking about you and wishing you well.

We're all here to "listen" when you need to vent!

Take care and be well!

Thanks, Gary7. Unfortunately, I suspect that the fevers mean that the infection -- which, by the way, was not discovered "early" by any stretch of the imagination -- has returned. Or perhaps just come back out of hiding. As you said, devious. The fevers are following the same pattern as they did before.
Ugg, I'm so sorry... I'm not familiar with the nature of this disease, but from what I'm seeing now, I can see why "devious" is an apt word to describe it. Well, all I can do is hope that you're able to fight it into remission and it stays there.

Re: Ziyal's medical update :)

^Yeah, I imagine it's confusing to someone who doesn't live with it. The chordoma -- the bone cancer -- is gone, thank God, at least for now. It's the infection and related problems at the surgical site that've given me all this trouble for more than two years.

Shanndee, thank you for all the encouragement!

Thanks, RJ. It is irritating. Actually, it's depressing as hell.


So you need some cheering up then:

I am not a cat person, by any stretch of the imagination... but this is soooooo cute!!!

I saw the plastic surgeon today. The bottom line is that we're going to watch and wait. I consider that to be relatively good news.

That's good, as long as you're not experiencing discomfort.

Nope, no discomfort. But we do have a game plan for if the problem escalates. Of course, in addition to what the doctor suggested, I will probably require an infusion of cute kitties.

Wait and see and no discomfort is good! Maybe this little one from "I can has cheezburger" can help ward off future issues as well as Klingons:

Actually, the doctor has prescribed that the kitties be taken orally.
