Dear Diary,

I know that mom and me have been so busy with working and everything else we do and have not been on in awhile and not sure how many will see this because of that. But wanted to let anyone know who is still following me that on Monday mom got a call at work from the Dogtor and he said I have lymphoma cancer. Mom did not take it well AT ALL.... We went to a special hospital on Tuesday called Affiliated Veterinary Specialists in Maitland Florida and they told her that it was true.... again, she did not take it well AT ALL... The Dogtor said that there is a 0% chance of cure for lymphoma cancer, BUT!!!! There is a better than 93% remission rate, WOOT!

It all started about two weeks ago when I was not acting like my usual spunky self. Mom took me to the Dogtor to have me checked. My blood test numbers came back not good. He found lump thingies on me and took tests to send away. Mom said she knew there was something wrong.

I started some pills called Prednisone that day, they wanted to start my chemo that day but mom did not have the money for it. She is scared about not having enough to pay to make me better and has been really scared and upset. Anyway, she came up with enough so that I could start my treatment and today was the first one. It was not bad and I did really good. The Dogtor said that since I started those yucky pills earlier in the week that my lump thingies got a little smaller and my blood work was a little better. My Dogtor said that if I am able to keep with my treatments for the next six months that he completely believes that I will be in remission in no time, can you believe it!! Mom said she is not sure how she is going to do it, but she said she is not ever giving up on me because we have a whole lot more to do as a team still!!

Anyway, just wanted to let my old friends know in case anyone is still following me. I hope that you are all doing really well and I promise to keep you posted. Mom said that with this awful scare that we are finally going to start taking down time much more often since she said life is just too short to be so busy and so serious. Stay well my friends and I will talk to you soon.

Oh Binx and Susan.. this is NOT good to hear.

But... do the best you BOTH can... take it a day at a time.... go with the flow.

Look at all angles.. make decisions based on whats best.. not on what you "want" to be best.

I know you know that.. and that you will do the right things.

For now.. a day at a time. Review it all at each stage....

Know that we are here. Mum has my email and tel no....

Sending all love and hugssss
