I haven't been here in so long.. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October after a couple of suspicious mammograms in September...
Underwent treatment starting in October and a bilateral mastectomy in January...
It's been a long 8 months , and many surgeries, still have more surgery to reconstruct my breasts and get healthy again... tissue reconstruction takes longer.
I had taken in an abused Maltese puppy mill girl in May, got her doing much better when I was diagnosed so she went to the head of rescue. I miss her so. But they're taking over where we left off... and I hope to be able to foster again, once I'm feeling better...
We are blessed to have our 4 Maltese, 1 Cocker Spaniel and Harry the cat, all in good nick and helping me recover...
weak and tired but I'm helping our local shelter, which has now committed to "No Kill" so it will take a lot to honour that commitment..
Now I have to catch up on all I missed... I sure miss piccies of wiggle buts...

hi michelle: welcome back! i'm sorry to hear of your illness and hope you are on the road to recovery. i think having dogs has to help with recovery. They're so attentive when they know we're feeling bad. Please take care.
