Every month, when it gets to the 16th of the month, I allow myself a little jig around and I mentally tick off another poke in the face to osteosarcoma.

This month we celebrated poke number 10 Smile

The stats for osteo are less than good as some of you will know so although I hate to go on and bore you all (snort), I will go on and bore you all, regardless Laughing

Having pinched the re-cap pics from a previous post (for those who haven’t followed Darcy’s story), I’ll add current pics at the end of the post.

You seem to be trying the [img] tag comonly used in other forums and wikis. Just click the Insert Image button (insert image

) and paste the image URL where indicated. Be sure to size them for quick download.

Complete instructions for inserting images in posts can be found in the Support forum. We’ll fix these for you.

Awww she’s beautiful!!  but then I’m a sighthound fanatic and may be a little bit biased.  You can bore me with photos anytime.

The slide down the back of the sofa is soooo true and works particularly well if there is a lap handy to act as a pillow.  Laughing 

Thank you for sharing it so gives us all inspiration.
