I want to pretend this is a bad dream, I prefer not to speak about this…but the truth is staring me in the face. My dear, dear Funny (Faye vom Kirschental) has cancer. I hoped she would live forever….. but at least 14 or 15 years, that really is not asking for much is it? At 13 years she was in great health, and then wham, overnight she became old. Earlier this year she had some mammary tumors removed. A smaller tumor up under her elbow was not removed and became malignant. The tumor has spread under her shoulder and into her lymph-nodes. The cancer is systemic. Surgery is not an option. Chemo was considered but ruled out. Natalie did a scan of her and we put her on a homeopathic remedy. This helped her re-gain her appetite and she started eating again, allowing her to do well for the next 6 weeks. She now is having pain in her rear leg and holding it off the ground. Although eating well, she is loosing weight. If I will listen to her, Funny will let me know when it is time. She will leave us with as much dignity as she lived her life.
