Hi ladies! Rena - happy your scan was clear. Love the photo of the girls -- they do look like they could be sisters :) Tina - Congratulations on the $$ you raised with the cupcake sales. It's amazing! I'm sure I've missed something...haven't been on in a while, but hope everyone is doing okay. All good here...my BFF from Junior High visited for a week, then I went on a girl's weekend to LA. We made like tourists - had so much fun. Now getting back to my routine. Cough almost gone thanks to inhaler. Yay! Hug Elaine

Elaine, so glad that you're still having a lot of fun! You are my role model! Tricia, I couldn't open the link, but I looked up the meaning of Maeve and found a few different ones. My favorite was "joy"! I'm sure this little girl will bring them joy. Love to you all.

Good morning !!  Just dropping by to say hello. Very cold here in North Florida... down into the high 20s 2 nights in a row.. Any of you in the Buffalo area.. I hope you are ok. 

Earlier this year in Jan..I had posted about a friend that was dx with BC. She opted for holistic/natural rather than chemo etc. The result is not good at all. Having a hard time understanding her thought process but have remained positive for her and her family. She had not even had another scan since her dx because the doctors wouldn't do it unless she was under thier care with traditional methods.  I posted a portion of her FB under my orig post about holistics etc.

I am so lucky to have all of you and to be here 5 yrs later. :)

Getting ready for the holidays.. this year sure has gone by quickly !!   The Corgis are doing wonderful. Taking Stella and Colt to the Eukanuba shows in December. If any of you are around the Orlando area, come and see the show !! There will be over 4000 dogs and so much to see.. and oh... yes.. the shopping at the booths.. it is just WOW.

Hi Grace. I'm glad to hear that you're doing well. Good luck with your shows. I'm very sorry that your friend is not doing well. I guess we all have to follow our own path, but it makes me sad that so-called holistic "treatments" have been so misrepresented online and in the media. I wish her well. Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Hi 

Grace - sorry about your friend...what can I say?  We make our own choices, but I wonder sometimes...  Happy to hear the Corgis are doing so well :)

Tina - Rest up and let us know what the docs say.  

Me - I celebrated another birthday - woo hoo!  Have spent the past week or so trying not to fall into a food coma -- lunch, dinner, lunch, dinner, etc. etc.  But of course it was all fun and happy.  Now on to the next food coma - Thanksgiving! Oy!  Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope you have a long list of things for which to be grateful :)

Hug
Elaine
