One guy whose wife I've become close to is having increasing cognitive problems. His tumor hasn't grown recently (a lot of the ones at the base of the skull can't be removed completely), but all the treatment to keep it that way is catching up with him.
Doug died two days ago. I feel so sad. He was such a kind man.

As for me, nothing's changed. We're still "watchfully waiting". I'm doing really well in both physical therapy and my fundraising project. Thanks to my supportive friends, including a few here, I'm only $90 away from my $2500 goal! Anyone want to help with that last $90?

Re: Ziyal's medical update :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. My condolences to all concerned. I know what it's like to lose somebody to an illness.

Your fundraising campaign has gone really well. Congratulations.

Wow, you're keeping close watch! In real life, it's $25. A friend sent me a check that I have to forward, so it isn't going to show up on the site for a while.

Yeah, it's a nail biter now. I know you're going to make it, though.

Re: Ziyal's medical update :)

Done. Woohoo! Thank you so much to those of you here who helped! Gonna try for another thousand, in memory of Doug. There's so much work that needs to be funded.

And, btw, I did a few minutes on the elliptical (cross-trainer) the other day! First time I've been able to do that since the surgery. So "Woohoo!" again!
