    OT - happy, eventful weekend!

    Hello ladies,
    I apologize for the completely off topic post, but I'm over-tired & unable to focus!  I know some of you know about my DH & his cancer struggles (and thank you all for your support!!!)  Just wanted to post that on Thursday he had his first post-transplant scans & all is well - No Evidence of Disease!!!  We've been waiting for 9 months to find out if it worked & I cannot begin to say how relieved we both were!
    We had only that 1 evening to relax and celebrate though, because on Friday we picked up our 2 adopted beagles!  They have had tough little lives so far, but they are already adapting to having a home of their own & we cannot wait until they settle in as part of our family.  Whew... this weekend was probably more tiring/life-altering than the wedding!  But I wanted to share the good news! Thanks for indulging me :)

    Tibird, that's such awesome news! That's fantastic that your DH is healthy and disease-free. You know, they say that people who own pets live longer, healthier lives too. Beagles are awesome dogs, they're so loyal and playful!

    Maybe you can set up a play date with Kar's puppy. Tongue out

    That is such wonderful news all around. My friend just donated stem cells to the Dana Farber Institute. I visited her in the hospital when she was doing it, and I was so proud of her. She said it was the best decision she could have made, and worth the 8 hours that it took.

    I think getting two puppies is a great way to celebrate!  You must be having so much fun with them.  I'd love to see pics if you get around to it!  Smile

    Peoni - That is awesome!!!  DH had his transplant at DFI... he used his own cells (luckily) but meeting people there made us realize how big a need there is.  Also the need for blood, which I had posted about long ago - you never really know the impact a blood donor can make until you hear "sorry, your blood type is in low quantities & we can't give you the 2 units your doctor requested". (nhbride - if you're still out there - THANK YOU again!!!)

    The best estimate is that they are between 2-3, but they were abandonned, so nobody really knows. 

    November - We had a nice dinner out the other day to celebrate, and I'm sure we will do something with friends/family when the pups are settled in, but for now we are just enjoying the relief and moving on!  It's weird, but the cancer has controlled all our thoughts & actions for so long even celebrating right now seems like giving it more power.  So we're just happy!

    Thanks all for your support ~ we're lucky to have such a great group here!

    Thanking God for your great news of DH's report and praying the same for the rest of your long, healthy lives together.

    The beagles are ADORABLE!!  It must be so much fun to watch them play together.  I almost wish we had a playmate for our pup, but then, again, she's a handful all by herself.  I hope you are enjoying them - I know it can be very hard work at first and might not seem like fun yet!  I hear it gets easier... ;)

    Ti, LOOK at those faces, how could you not bring them home! How kind of you and DH to take them together so they wouldn't be split up. You guys have been through so much, and yet have such kind hearts and give to others....god bless you!! :)

    Tibird - That is great news about your husband. :)  I can't imagine what the past 9 months (probably longer) have been like for you both, waiting. 

    And I'm so happy for you and for those puppies for finding each other!!  I cannot fathom how anyone could abuse or abandon their pets.  That poor Molly.  They are so lucky that you and DH have adopted them, as you both will be very lucky to have them!  I'm with DKB - waiting to move to a bigger place so that I can adopt a dog (or 2).  I used to have a dog, and life has just been nowhere near as happy without him.  Of course, I can't quite express that to DH or his feelings get a little hurt... :)

    Anyway, congrats on both!!

    Fabulous news Tibird!  Congratulations and thanks for sharing!!

    My mom had breast cancer 15 years ago.  Every year when she goes in for her check up, I think she still holds her breath until the results come in. But so far so good!!  And I hope for you two that you will be saying the same in 15 years!
