if we could ask a question, here it is. we've started a new protocol with gayle. i'd like to know gayle's take on this, is it what she wants, is it helping, is it hurting. what is she feeling.
thanks, charon & gayle
Life is good, so very, very good!!! Gayle enjoyed each and every moment of each and every wonderful day (naps included). She left this world December 12, 2011 – off on a new adventure.

Ok, If you have time to fit us in, my question is: we just found out Abby has this additional disease (hypertrophic osteopathy) on top of the darn bone cancer. But we (well, I) am determined to keep fighting. Is Abby on board with that? How is she doing with this new fricking disease?
(not sure I can be there during the call but i'll try. We have a lot going on today, but I will definitely listen when it's posted if I can't make the call.)
Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman.
