So my brothers cancer is so rare, there have only been 8 of its kind in the last 35 years. Thank goodness they believe they got it all. The 3 monthly MRIís are concerning (I think it strange) but he seems ok with it all. He flew over last weekend, his vocal chords are permanently damaged and all he can muster is a whisper. But Iíll take that any day over the alternative!

His vocal chords were damaged in the first op, he has very little voice now and apparently itís unlikely to recover. A shout comes over as a husky whisper. I believe we will tell mum this weekend. Dr Google says this type of cancer, depending on what stage and if spread can have a good outcome. Saying my prayers.

Forgot to add I had a mylogram of the cervical and thoracic. Should get it the results next week. Not that I want them, I donít know what to do if anything is bad and indicative I need surgical intervention. Iím over surgery for ever!

Pam, I hope your brother's MRI results are nothing to be concerned about.

Also, I hope that your myelogram results turn out well.

I find 3 monthly MRIís to be unusual but My brother seems ok with it so Iím saying nothing.

I hope to get the mylogram results next week when my neurosurgeon returns from holiday.

PamelaJune -- I had a malignant tumor removed from my brain in 2005 and had to have MRIs every 3 months for a year, then they changed to every 6 months, (another surgery) then every 12 months. May 2018 the hospital finally changed it to every 24 months for the rest of my life. Whew.
It is to watch for any return of the tumor.

Iíve been to chicken to go get my mylogram results and Iíve been extra busy with work travelling to Vic, SA and NT. I went to my GP Weds hoping she had a copy of the report but no such luck.

Yesterday something terrible happened. I had to have our 2 dogs Bono and Bronson put to sleep. Bronson had cancer and somehow Bono fractured his spine on Thursday while I was in work. I spent the night with him on the floor and he finally collapsed onto my chest and I could ease him to the floor. At that stage I knew something was wrong but not what. I couldnít pick him up so had to wait for the vet to come to me. When she did, she said the kindest thing is to let him go, heís nearly 14 & she looked at Bronson and said the same for him. So my boys who arrived together 13years ago and have been my stalwart companions have crossed the rainbow bridge. Iím beyond devastated canít speak to anyone and keep saying to myself I want them back. Got DB home as they were his dogs first. He too is heartbroken.

Pam, you have my deepest sympathy.

Losing much-loved pets is always a hard thing.
