well, what a day.  i woke up this morning, thinking to myself…gayle this is your three month ampuversary – congrats girl, no doubt there will be a pawty.  i was barely out of  ‘nap phase’, when i heard the leash and thought…maybe we’re going for breakfast, wow that says pawty all over it…

but..what do you know…not my kind of pawty.  i went today for my fourth chemo treatment.  at least today i got home by three, but i’m exhausted and now i don’t feel like a pawty girl at all…  i know there’s only one more to go, then i’m gonna pawty like it’s 1999!!! (or maybe 2000, since that was my birth year). 

there better be some ice cream or something yummy for me after dinner (and after my after dinner nap)… 

i guess life IS like a box of chocolates..and you never know what you’re gonna get!!

gayle developed a small lump in her right front wrist. biopsy determined it was a soft tissue sarcoma, with amputation feb 17, 2010. she's recovering nicely, taking naps when needed, and enjoying every moment of every wonderful day. in december 2010 we discovered oral melanoma cancer. gayle had two surgeries to remove tumors, but the ugly disease took her from us december 12, 2011. love never ends.

  1. Aw, Gayle. Lousy way to pawty. Catie shares your discontent. She had her fifth chemo treatment today (not her ampuversary or anything, but still!!).

    Hope you get something yummy for sure!

  2. Well that’s a bummer of a way to spend your big day. If it makes you feel any better, Lincoln had chemo today too, so you and Catie and him were probably all at the vet at the exact same time.

    Look at it this way, you can celebrate tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after that. That’s what rain checks are all about. And then, remember, you’ll have many months of celebrations after you finally get to celebrate this one.

    Party on, is all we have to say. Party on!

  3. Now, that is no way to spend an ampuversary. But, at least you got another treatment behind you. That is so pawesome you only have on more left to go. I can not wait to hear that you are all done with your chemo so you can party hearty. I can see it now — you running around while Prince blares in the background. In the meantime, take it easy the next few days. That chemo stuff is a bummer.

  4. Hey Gayle – we love Prince! Pawty like it’s 1999. Yea! 3 Month Ampuversary and another treatment behind you. That’s always worth celebrating! We hope you are doing ok and get to eat some of that yummy ice cream. Also hope that Catie, Ginger and Lincoln are all doing ok too :). Bet you’ll be feeling better in no time and then we really got some celebrating to do!

  5. Man, what a way to spend your ampuversary!!! You make your Mom make up for it, ok? 😉 I’m SURE she will!!! No need to beg! hahaha!


  6. I’m sorry you had to spend your very special Tri-Ampuversary at the Vet … but I’m sure Mommy will make up for it! Happy 3 months, Gayle … wishing you many, many more to come!!

    PS: I like to Pawty like it’s 2000, too … since I was born that year, as well!! 😉


  7. Happy 3 month ampuversary! This definitely calls for extra treats – chemo on your ampuversary = plenty of treats + plenty of hugs. Glad to hear all’s going well!
