    Hello all:

    Sorry to log on under Deed's name. This is her husband, David. I feel lucky to have met several of you, and am happy Dee Dee has made so many friends. She got onto the board after she was rediagnosed in 1999, and did not want to disturb everyone with her diagnoses, until it recently became more of a problem.

    Dee Dee is in the hospital now, because she was having fluid on her lungs and abdomen, as a result of blood clotting. They had to control the fluid, before they could give her lasix (She has shared it's usage with horses with all the nurses). They took off 4 liters of fluid from Jan. 29-31, and it has really tapered off since then. She has been resting comfortably since that time, and will be in the hospital until the end of the week. They want both of these things under control before she can go home.

    She was able to have chemo again on Friday. She had not been able to do it for several weeks, because of these other complications. I understand clotting is not that uncommon in this situation. We do know she will be much better off when she comes home. Whether the chemo will end up getting rid of the cancer is still not clear, although we are still hopeful. It has been in her bones, relatively harmlessly for several years. The cancer that has spread is breast cancer, metasticized, so they are treating it with chemo drugs effective on breast cancer.

    I will share this WONDERFUL post and your beautiful support with Deed tomorrow. We will let you know how she does when she gets out. Your messages are greatly appreciated.

    David L. Blinn (aka, Mr. Dublin, aka Lucy's papa).

    David,

    Which chemo drug is she on?

    A very close friend of mine is taking Xeloda (common for metastatic breast cancer) and she had *horrible* reactions to it until she limited her folic acid intake on the weeks she was taking the drug.

    Please pass along to Dublin that we are thinking of her!

    Thank you David for the update. What hospital is DeeDee in? I'd love to send a card.
    I am continuing to pray for a speedy and total recovery.
    I really enjoyed browsing through those photos. What a beautiful rider DeeDee is! I hop to soon read that she's back on board.

    Kick on!

    God Bless

    Dublin, you can tell the nurses that some of the same chemo drugs that are used to treat breast cancer are used to treat tumors on the udders of mares. My best friend, and one of my favorite horses are both using the same drug right now.

    I am still praying and jingling away right now, just as hard as I can. We miss you so much, Dublin, and want you back with us soon!

    This too, shall pass.

    Thanks for the update, David!

    Deed, you are still EXPECTED to visit me here in Ireland!! I really need that groom for Dublin HS - and if you are just into hanging out, then you can sit on a chair and direct your hubby...

    Of course, I will have to clear all the horse paraphenalia (sp??) out of the "guest room"... but maybe I will have a house of my own by the time you get here.

    Take care!!!!
