Updates on cat and cancer: good news and bad omens.

First of all, Elwood the cat is coming home this afternoon. He will have to remain on antibiotics and a drug to keep up his appetite, but he is expected to recover fully, given that leukemia in cats is not curable, but is live-withable. That's the good news.

We are also awaiting the all-important results of the CATscan I had this morning at 8:30. We won't have results for a little while (though we might have them today, since I am potentially scheduled for chemo tomorrow), but on the way home from the scan, we passed an Italian bakery whose sign read "Closed Monday in memory of Dan." That can't be good.

Don't believe everything you read. (Including this.)

It was suggested to me that perhaps the sign was talking about someone else who was also named "Dan."

We'll see.

Hey Dan? This is Tuesday....

I'm just saying.. Yesterday was Monday right and you're still here....

Maybe they just forgot to take the sign down?

Thanks for the update on Elwood too!

I'm so glad for Elwood. Each day is a gift.

Dammit, I hate when that happens.

P.S. Good for Elwood (and you and the missus).

LuAnn, the co-owner of La Brioche bakery in Madison died of cancer this past Sunday. We lost LuAnn, but still open, but we're rallying around her husband David and the bakery. There's hope! And besides, I'm pulling for you. We've never met, but trust me, having Haas-FU™ on your side is a good thing. ;-)
