This is an update about me and the reason I have not been posting. Yes, I was very depressed but there was something else going on. I was having blinding headaches and they were worse than my normal migraines. I have injections of Botox to stop them but instead they were getting worse.

Eventually I rang my neurologist and then went to see her. She asked me to have a CT scan, which I did and an anomaly was there. Next they asked me to have an MRI and I was told I have a tumour. Yesterday they did a needle biopsy and it was found to be cancerous.

I am having it removed on Tuesday next week.

It is small and in a place that is easy to get it. I wanted to share this with you all to let you know why I am not blogging. Please don’t worry about me I am in the best of care. My support team is amazing and my medical team are truly great. They feel we have a big chance to win this battle and it is good odds to triumph. I am called kitten but I am a strong fighter.

On a brighter note if I behave like a brat, have a blonde moment or throw a tantrum I can just say…. brain tumour. It works too because we usually end up giggling.

I will keep you all posted…

All prayers are welcome.

 

Thank you so much

kitten

  1. Michael thank you for your kind words. I choose to be positive and so does my support team/. I have to say I can get away with murder with them. They take such good care of me. Laughter at this time is my best cure. Thank you once again.

  3. Well there has to be an upside of a tumour so I am going to use it. It works sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t. I choose it carefully. Darling S. keeps me laughing. I have a new fight song and I am wearing my armour. I can’t say I am not afraid but I have so many wonderful people around me that keep me strong. My medical team are amazing too. Thanks for your well wishes. ❀

  5. Hey Nijntje thanks for asking. Things are a bit of a challenge right now but things will get better. Hard to kick ass right now as my legs are not working after the surgery but there are also some great signs that point to the fact they will soon be back in their ass kicking ways. Radiation therapy sucks and the pills I am taking can make life a challenge but I beat this once I am going to do that same thing again. Thanks for your well wishes hun. Luv to you and the Bear.

      • Hey Nijntje. I have just finished Radiation therapy. After surgery on the brain I was left unable to walk. I have movement in my right leg although weak it works. My left one is less responsive but I have feeling coming back. That might take a while to come back. I am getting a sexy red and black wheel chair until my legs work better. I wear a leg brace on my left so I can walk and right now I can walk the length of the double bars. It ain’t pretty but it’s better than nothing. Emotionally I am all over the place but my darling S. keeps my spirits up. I have a full time carer that keeps me on my toes ~ wink ~ We went out for lunch yesterday and they got me in my wheelie and then turned and walked off. I yelled out hey what about me and they said, and this is a direct quote. ‘What’s the matter are your arms paralysed?’ I laughed my ass off but I adore they are letting me find my own independence. There was a guy getting into his car and he looked appalled and offered to push me to the cafe and I shook my head and thanked him.
        My weeks have been busy but fruitful. We have been thinking about kinky fuckery and we can still get into it but we will have to adapt things to fit within my limitations.
        We don’t think the paralysis is permanent but if it is, we will be fine. Our love is what carries me through.
        So, that is me in a nutshell. I know this sounds weird but I count my blessings of which there are many. With my family I have a great deal of care but I know this battle is mine. The tumour was not deep in the brain but sort of on the outside and has been completely removed. The radiation has made sure of that and I have a pretty good prognosis. However, I am going to live life as if every day is my last and get all I can from a moment. I might not reach 70 years old but I am not limiting myself. I will not let this beat me. ❀ ❀ ❀

  6. Thanks Sassycat. Humour is my first treatment on cancer. If things get a bit overwhelming then Darling S. has me giggling like crazy. PT is working well and I have limited use of my right leg.I can also feel it too. And yes I can get away with murder right now. I have my good days and my bad days. I am undergoing Radiation Therapy right now and that isn’t great but very necessary. To everyone thanks for your continued support.
