Hello Darkness, My Old Friend,

Yes, I've come to walk with you again (Simon and Garfunkel).

All this happened so rapidly. Those of you who know me know that I haven't posted on this blog site for some time now. And tha's because all has been well as SABINE and I enter our 8th year of "managing" this cancer. 

So here's my story....

With piercing neck pain I finally got SABINE into the ER yesterday. They did an MRI and found a mass on her cervical vertebrae. It was causing the pain. But it is not known at this time whether it is an infection or a cancer. 

The tentative plan is to have neurosurgery go in (if they can do so,safely) in order to have more info. If it is an infection, then antibiotics, if it is a cancer, then radiation therapy. 

Helene is coming down from Stevens Point tomorrow to help out with Buddy. I am not only needed here for moral support but also the hospital staff has permitted me to conduct Sabine's dialysis each day.

This is a big setback for us. All was going too well. But eight years is not a bad run. I hope and pray we can eek out more time. 

I am not ready for this as I sense this growing fear and sadness within.

Love to you all. Prayers are most welcome.
