I don't need my curb chain on my double any more [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] so I've taken it off and put it on my wrist instead. Jingling full time for those who need a little extra luck.
Hope this resolves itself....somehow. Sounds like one of those toughies, all we can do is wish you the best of luck!

I don't nott to have ein double bridle yet, so I haff beed squeeking mine poofen stall monkey for your Opa. Das is mein favoriten stall toy.
Meine liebchen Ariel, she haff jingled her kicking chains. Mein modder (I loff her) haff ein hound-dog, his name it be Charlie, und he haff jingled his collar tags und flapped his ears.
Today or tomorrow he is having some peripheral vision test which will show more clearly how much the vision is being affected. He now just wants it out, rather today than tomorrow, and I can totally understand. 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."
Too bad that Willem's Cushings medicine doesn't work for peeps!
But thank you thank you thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I KNOW they are working!

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_c...icon_smile.gif
Willem...and your dahling mama, Coreene, and her pap..Curb chains a jingling and prayers a flying. Having just barely one year in remission from breast cancer...I feel for y'all and just know that a positive attitude (which I KNOW you guys have) will get you all through this too. Keep us posted...your COTH family is with you, just like "the Force". Midnight's Momma

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."
