I'm so sorry, hornblower.

You are one of the most principled people on the boards re: animal rights and I admire you so much for that. Cancer is no respecter of persons. 😞

Praying for you right now.

Thank you for sharing the blog link.

Hugs.

I’m praying that the test results will be much better than you expect and that you will be cured of this awful disease very soon.

 I’m crying right along with you. I am so sorry this is happening to you again. It’s so unfair.

So sorry to hear this, Hornblower. But man, you are strong!  To be struggling with this and going on with your schooling?  Good for you!  Take the time now to cry and breath.  Then get out and walk with that sweet dog of yours and love on her.  You got this, praying for you!

I am so sorry! Cancer is evil. 

And although I have no idea if this information is helpful, my mom had lung cancer and a lobectomy and at first they said her only option was traditional open chest surgery, but we researched and found that thorascopic surgery was an option as well. She had that instead and it is much less invasive and easier to recover from is my understanding. She went to Duke university for that surgery and they continue to do her follow ups years later - one of the professors there invented the instruments for the surgery I believe. 

If there is anything we can do, please let us know. 

In the meantime, watch all the bad tv you want. If you need suggestions of books to keep your mind off things I'm sure we can recommend those as well - otherwise enjoy the brain break and know that your health is the first priority, everything else can wait.

Oh Hornblower, I'm so sorry for your bad news. Someone I know has had stage 4 breast cancer for over ten years and is still alive and kicking and living a good life. I hope that is how it goes for you, too.

I know someone who had it for 7+ years.  This field of study is only getting better and better at fighting cancer.

So very sorry to hear this update!  Do what you need to do to get through it (bad tv and all).  You have lots of support, prayers, and positive thoughts from so many on this board!

I’m so sorry!  I don’t want to ‘like’ your post on tumblr but I can’t leave a comment.  It totally sucks and I’m so sorry you got this incredibly difficult, scary news.  Praying you can still have good time in good health for as long as possible.

 

I didn't want to deal with comment moderation and spam but I kwym.  my email is mistressofthehounds and it is at the very very very large search engine company if anyone would like to write privately. If there are questions I could answer those in later posts on the blog  (i'll try to add this to the update post too so it's easier to find)

I'm in the phase where I can kind of only do 1 thing per day and reading your comments and writing this might be the one thing. I'm going to go back to trying to level up in candy crush.

Thank you everyone. I feel your love.

xoxo
