Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and hope Santa brought you everything and more !
Updates.. Uncle is home with us for a few days and we are happy he got home in time for Christmas.. He is doing well , just pretty exhausted . Mom has to bandage his arm everyday and the tumors are shrinking.. we hope this treatment really works ! We see the doctor in 10 days !
We were with Marielle last night and i can tell you first hand that this cancer isn't keeping her down.. she is very pale .. but has a very Beautiful smile and seemed to have lots of energy, but after about 2 hours she did crash so they had to go home early .. well they needed to get to bed so Santa could come! Mom has been off for 4 days and honestly is seems like she hasn't been off for a day.. we hope to lay very low today ,as tomorrow mom has to take her uncle back for a blood check , than take him home to get him settled in which means going to the crazy grocery store again , and getting his house back in order as he had out of town guest stay at his house while he was in the hospital.. we hope they left things like they found them .. so if you don't see us here .. mom is on her roller skates once again and she will be back to work on Thursday !

Love you all,
Buttercup & Pat

12/21/12 Moms Uncle Update

It was a very long 13 1/2 hour day at Mercy hospital with my favorite widowed uncle. His procedure was supposed to be 3 to 4 hours long .. it turned into a 10 1/2 hour long procedure to treat him for merkel cell carcinoma. It was a very technical procedure to treat this extremly rare condition and it took a huge team of specialist . They could not get the cath lines in through the groin to administer the chemo .. so they had to run the caths through the opposite arm to the arm that they were treating. Sounds horrible right .. and it was.. they only give you a light sedative during this phase of the treatment and numb the area.. horrible.. but once they had the caths in place , they than had lost their line up for the OR room so they had to wait and be moved to another operating room.. once there they were able to knock him totally out and the procedure went great . !!! Now he spends 4 to 5 days in the hospital waiting to make sure the treatment hasn't affected the muscle in his arm .. hopefully he will make it here with us by Christmas eve .. if not than we will take Christmas to him at the hospital ! His spirit is good and he is doing well .. now we wait and pray the chemo starts shrinking these tumors! We thank you all for the prayers !

Merry Christmas,
Momma Pat & Buttercup

Our dear Uncle is being admitted tomorrow for treatment of Merkel cell carcinoma that has taken over his right forearm. This skin cancer is extremely rare . Mom and he have seen 5 specialist and he has a choice of 3 types of treatment. He finally decided on an isolated limb profusion . They put the chemo in the forearm , but it is a very complicated procedure that requires general anesthesia .. of course none of this is easy especially at age 83. He had 1/2 of his upper left lung removed due to an unrelated cancer 3 years ago. We are hoping for a 3-5 day hospital stay and hoping that within 2 weeks these horrible tumors will shrink and go away. We pray he doesn't have any complications and that he will be home in time for Christmas with us ! This cancer is very aggressive and unpredictable.. it is a fatal skin cancer.. but right now he has a 50/50 chance of it matastizing in 1 to 3 years .... so before you go to bed .. would you add him to your prayer chain ! We will keep you posted..


Merry hugs and Kisses,
Buttercup & Momma Pat

p.s. Marielle is doing good right now.. hopefully she will stay the course in time for Santa !

Oh Boy .. we are behind in writing in our diary ... My secretary has been very busy and had very little sleep .. so heres an update. Marielle had been about month with out any hospital stays .. but she has recently spent 10 days in patient for treatment and another UTI infection. She was home 2 days and is again back in the hospital with another fever . She is supposed to be getting treatment again tomorrow but we think it will depend on the fever. This Christmas it will be one year since she was first diagnosed and i can't start to tell you what a long year it has been for our family not to mention how it has changed everyones lifes. Next.. moms favorite uncle has been diagnosed with merkel cell carcinoma . It is extremely rare form of skin cancer and the tumors are growing daily all over his forearm. After he and mom have made many trips to specialist he will be admitted on the 18th for treatment . This cancer is deadly and there is no cure.. Right now he has a 50/50 chance of making it 1 to 3 years .. so we pray daily that it is the later time as long as it is quality time. .. add in work, my hubrother not well , and the holiday .. and geeze louise.. life is CRAZY ! For the most part i have been really good except i am totally nocturnal and get mommy up all night as i don't like to be awake by myself. Today i did start to cough almost non-stop ever time i am up .. but if i am a sleep than i don't cough .. if this continues .. than a trip to the vet is in store for me ! Just in case we don't get back to dairy writing .. we want to thank everyone for your continued support , love and friendship .. and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah !

Love and Kisses,
Buttercup & Mommy

 

11/18/2012 Busy , Busy .. Happy Thanksgiving !

We just wanted to give a quick update as to what is going on in our lives .. BUSY ... one word sums it up .. First Marielle will be at clinic tomorrow morning to see if her numbers have come up enough to have another round of chemo in the spine. She has been taking her oral chemo at home and the numbers have been to low. She is about 2 weeks behind once again on her treatment but has been feeling ok other than her hair has fallen out again. She and her younger brother are starting to focus on Christmas .. woohoo !!! My Gmom has been in the hospital and she is staying with us right now for a few days until she gets strong enough to go back home so mom has had limited time here. My moms favorite Uncle is battling some terrible skin cancer so mom has many doctors appointments coming up ( she goes with him.) If you don't see us quite as much this is why. For me.. i am ok .. doing my usual itching , coughing and gagging and keeping mom up at night .. but i am ok ..
We want to make sure all of our pals here have a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving !

Love to all,
Buttercup & Mom

Maielle has been doing fairly well , but getting a lot of chemo at this point so her ANC numbers are at zero ( immune system numbers) .. so zero is not good.. meaning she can catch anything and be deadly to her.. she is extremely tired , getting tutored at home for school , doing her craft projects that she loves when she isn't resting or studying. We aren't visiting as we don't want to carry any germs to her. She is due for another round of chemo in her spine next week .. but that all depends if her ANC numbers increase so she can get it . She is a real trooper .. honest it is hard enough for adults to deal with ,... how do children do it ??? We thank you all for all the support and continued prayers !

November 1 , 2012 .. Visit to Dr.T's

Mom was brushing my teeth on Sunday and when she lifted my gum she saw i had what looks to be a canker sore on the inside of my upper lip and my gum was inflamed . Do dogs get canker sores?? Then hurricane Sandy rolled through so the doc's weren't open .. but mommy took me last night to get it looked at . It doesn't bother me at all , i am still kissing , licking and chewing my feet, eating and drinking .. so that is all good. I was scared to death .. and madder than you know what at mom for taking me. I wouldn't even give her any kisses when we got home. Bottom line is nothing really happened .. Dr.T looked at it and said it isn't infected .. was wondering if i could have traumatized my lip by chewing on something , ( mom said nope, i don't chew on things other than my feet) .. so he said mom can try any over the counter type of stuff, like anbesol etc.. and to keep a very close eye on it. If it doesn't go away on its own in about a week to 10 days we are to go back and have him take another look at it. Mom says if it doesn't clear up than she will get me an appointment with Dr. Luskin my oral surgeon .. it is very strange as i don't have any teeth up top .. just five lower ones on the bottom .. we will keep you posted ! Mom says she is very thankful it doesn't bother me and i am still eating !
