Not Cancer!

I won't waste any time beating around the bush with this one. Lyn called, and the Pathologist has concluded that my lump was NOT cancer of any type! It was some kind of infected wound of sorts, possibly a hair follicle that got clogged up or maybe a bug bite that became inflamed. Lyn told Woman the name of it, but she forgot and couldn't spell it anyway.

So, faithful friends, thanks for all your prayers and good thoughts. I am STILL cancer free after 2 1/2 years, and I intend to stay that way!!

I was concerned that this good news would stop my nightly visits from the ice cream fairy, but Woman assures me I have another week of cold sugary sweetness to look forward to. Hooray!!

We're leaving in the morning to go to Camp ChiChi!! I'm so excited I could just tear Hootie apart! I won't though, because I love Hootie. Maybe another toy. Where's that puppy thing I don't much care for ...

    Yippeee!! We should have an anti-cancer party. Or I should say par-tay (that's a REAL party). I'm just not sure how to decorate for such a theme.....

    That is awesome news. We are so happy for you. As for the pug restraints, we just go to sleep in our ptu (prisoner transport unit). So we can't really help you.

    Have fun at camp.

    So happy to hear your good news, Norman!!
    Hope I am not too late to weigh in on the car restraint issue.
    Maybe you have seen my carseat on my blog, it looks like this:
    http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2753853 - we just had ours sit right on the seat, not elevated. I LOVED riding in it, but I grew out of it. (They have bigger ones too.)
    But now I use a little clip that attaches to my harness - it doesn't bother me at all.
    Hope you find something that works for you!
    Love Clover xo
