I thought twice about asking Willem to post about this. Then I thought about how all the good vibes for Aiden worked in spades. And the good vibes we've sent to so many of our beloved people, pets and horses. So I just wanted to slide in on this one. But he likes to be the one to tell people.

Like I said to another BBer the other day, thank God for Al Gore "inventing" the internet, and thank God that Merry invented the curb chain jingle.

FlightCheck, you make my day! I have put on about 25 lbs since then (after putting on 20 before this one - a result of the medication from my accident; my dad will be amped on steroids for a while after his now).

But my mother's philosophy is just like that Billy Crystal song "You Look Mahvelous": it's not how you feel, it's how you look. No, really. The funniest things after my dad's last surgery for the same thing were the times he was sitting by their pool afterwards; I went over and said "What are you doing, getting the benefits of sun?" And he said "No, I'm working on my tan, it faded when I was in the hospital and all the glamor is gone." And my mom was there nodding in agreement.

Cousin Willem, as of this weekend I have a curb chain on my bridle (something silly about Trainer Jo being tired of my patented "grab and jerk after landing off the line"), so I am jangling very hard for your modder's grandfather (you loff them both).

The REAL Portia wanted me to tell you she is jingling her curb chain, too, and that she "sends Willem and his modder many schnuffles and kusjes." I can't do that since we're both guys, but I'll send you a good shoulder nip.

Your cousin,

It took much bad language to get it over to his dr on Friday. It took more bad language this a.m. to get an appt for first thing on Thursday; possibly today if they get a cancellation.

He has People Cushings. A benign tumor, but still dangerous in that it is invasive. They did not expect it to come back for at least 10-15 years, but the dr said "Well, it's a testament to Kase's health that it grew back so quickly." Whatever that means - I am only looking for the good in this.

Advertisty does not build character, it reveals it.

I will be jingling my curb chain very hard for your grandpa. My brother had a brain tumor so I know how frightening the aspect of surgery must be for those who love this man.

Please tell Coreene that we are all with her (and you) and you know the best thing you can do for her is be patient when she has to have a good cry on your shoulder.

I'll jangle as many curb chains as I can find to help your dad out. Brain tumors are such fickle things - a close friend of mine currently has 14 malignant ones in her brain. They gave her 3 months about 4 years ago and she's still fighting and living a healthy life.

Give your dad a big hug from me, and Willem, give Coreene a big slobbery hug as well.

Twoey and Romeo are both trying out their double bridles...so for a moment, I thought they put Willem up to this, so that I would HAVE to take their curb chains for jingling...but the guys have assured me that they did not know anything about this.

Ahem.

So curb chains are jingling a-plenty. The Jack Russells have donated their choke collars.

The cats have pawed around in the tack room and have unearthed some...ummm...metal clanking stuff I dont want to try to identify..but they are jingling as well.

Thursday at 9 he is going to see his neurosurgeon, so fingers crossed that they'll schedule the date right away. We are hoping that they can do it through his nose this time, so that it won't involve the icky stuff like on Discovery Channel.

I called my parents last night and told them about all your good wishes and my mom was especially flabbergasted, because I don't think the concept of the BB has totally sunk in with her yet (the only time she ever saw anything on the internet was the time I made her come upstairs at my parents' while I was checking email, and grossly showed her www.pullmyfinger.com) (http://www.pullmyfinger.com)). They both thank everyone.

...and I am so truly blessed to have all of you. Thank God for the power of the curb chain, and all the prayers, love and good wishes attached to them.

I printed out this thread on Tuesday, before beetling off to my parents' house. They both send much love and thank you for the good wishes and prayers - they have been following Aiden's journey with the same prayers and good thoughts and good wishes, and theya re touched that the same love you have brought to Aiden was brought to them as well.

I want to give each of you a giant hug and kiss, and since I can't do that, picture me standing in front of my computer screen, arms around it, trying to send the hug that way.

Found out today that it is more than twice the size of before, and that removing it will be a bit of a nightmare because they will have a hard time doing it and not ruining his sight or his facial muscles. So he is going to have extra tests this coming week on the peripheral vision (this is the first thing that is screwed up), and another blood test because the Cushings part in people makes diabetes come on much faster than in horses.

He is now so PO-ed about it that he is going to Holland in a few weeks to see his family, '"Just in case." And that is damn scary.

I remember when my dad had cancer in one eye, had it removed, and started having major problems with the other eye. He immediately went on a cruise, then flew to Latvia to see his family, and then went to Disneyworld, "just in case". You know what? His vision in that other eye ended up just fine, and I have confidence that your Dad is in the same type of situation. But geez, it sucks to think about it.
I will say big prayers for your dad.....but I am confident he will come through just fine, he looks very strong.

Oh Coreene, sorry for the sudden reversal of news! I understand, though, what the docs are saying: sometimes the "cure" is as fraught with problems as the "disease".

Having dealt with facial muscle and nerve damage myself, I know how demoralizing it can be, if indeed he is forced to confront that. But he sounds like he has great inner strength and resolve, and a loving family who'll support him, so I'm sure he'll get through this. Besides, he has ALL OF US jingling away for him! /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Were it me, I'd just want the damn thing out - and today rather than tomorrow. But since this is one of the rare times that we have no insight into what is going on in my dad's head (well, aside from the rude tumor), so he keeps blowing it off like no big deal 99% of the time and we just have to follow his lead, at least in front of him.

I'm with you, I'd want it OUT too.

You know, you are right....if your dad had any feelings of urgency, *then* you can worry. Deep down, we "know" if something is terribly wrong with our bodies, and if he's mostly blowing it off, then it must not be too awful. Gotta trust those gut feelings.
Be strong, believe in your dad and his gut feelings, and know that we are all here for you and will be jingling and praying for your dad.

Coreene, I am jingling my bright, shiny, aurigan curb chain extra for your dad.

His picture depicts an intelligent man full of life, and I think his plans to go on the trip are great. I am sure you are angry that this is happening and you feel helpless, but your posts show what great respect and love you have for your father. My mom died when I was 12 and my dad died when I was a new mother of 24 (he never saw his grandson) and gosh, I just want to say give your folks a special hug because they are precious precious precious.

I wish you all the best, give your dad a hug from Kentucky. Let him go on his trip and then you all can have a good time going over pics after his surgery, which will be wildly successful.

Sorry to ramble, I just feel a little emotional tonight I guess...

Oh, tell Willem not to worry too much. The doctors know what they are doing. Just need to trust them... (it's hard, I know.)

As with all things in life, though, attitude can determine so much; and I am certain that your father will do what he feels is best for him.

My fingers are crossed, my body parts clenched, the curb chains are a-jingling for a successful surgery and complete recovery.

In the meantime, do what you can, be your father's medical advocate - and take care of yourself.

Today or tomorrow he is having some peripheral vision test which will show more clearly how much the vision is being affected.

And of course it doesnt' help when the one dr says "Well, it's going to be much, much more difficult than the last time."

Jingle jingle....Coreene I wanted to share a story that my 12th grade teacher told me - his Father-in-law was given 6 months to live after doctors discovered a tumor in his brain. He refused treatment; I think in his case it wasn't very treatable anyways. Apparently, he would go every day into his garden, and lean on his shovel. He would stand there for an hour every day, thinking nothing but positive thoughts. Six months later, the doctors were flabberghasted that the tumor had disappeared. He is still alive, years later, and with no signs of the cancer returning. This is a true story. Jingle, jingle. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Right now he's having the next big test, which is for the peripheral vision. If that is starting to go, then they will do the surgery sooner. If the blood test shows any sign of diabetes, which is also a result of Cushings, ditto.

I knew they could not get all the tumor out last time, so since it was benign we sighed with relief and yet knew we'd have to go through this again at some point. Apparently though, in 89% of of people where it is completely removed, it still will come back from scratch.

I do not overlook the fact that it is benign, which is a huge relief. It's not the tumor that might get him, it's the enormity of the surgery and what the effect may be (last time they accidentally cut a nerve which controls his right eyebrow being able to move - unavoidable, but at the same time it still means that the eyebrow doesn't move). But even that you take into context, sort of like "Well, I'd trade an eyebrow or a cheek movement if I could make sure the eyesight was status quo."

You know, Willem, the beads on the rosary are really just to help you keep count of your prayers. So you could use something else instead.

Karroten, for example. With every bite of karroten that you eat, you could say a prayer for your grandpa (you loff him).

I don't want to go through entering everything again, but wish to tell Willem to send my best to both his modder (he loffs her), Coreene, and his superfodder, Opa.

I stumbled onto this topic very late in the game and am happy Opa is going to be able to make a trip to Holland to visit relatives and friends.

Coreene, give him lots of understanding and support. Though he's treating this as no big deal, I'm sure he's worrying inside. But, it isn't macho to admit to it.

Willem, I am happy that your Opa is going to see his family and friends in Holland. He will have lots of fun. I am praying that when he gets back, Herr Doktor will be able to make him one hunnert percent verrie soon.
