    So cute, Mae. They are the cutest little pair.

    My next-door neighbor is older and has mobility issues. They got two pups that are just a little bigger, and they never potty trained them, so they go all over the house. I’m glad your guys are loving their routine.

    Mae - that's just too stinking cute. It's so funny that they both started doing it. Jealous sibs. Lol

    The end of the meeting was sad, knowing our Donna is gone. I’m so grateful we got to tell her how much we loved her a few weeks ago. I toasted you tonight, Donna. Rest n Peace.

    I could not make the meeting in today's time slot. I'm so sorry to hear of Donna's passing.

    I don't usually share memes here, but this popped up in my FB yesterday, and I thought it went perfectly with part of our discussion today.

    I’m heading into treatment soon, I may pop in briefly later if I get done before the zoom is over, otherwise I’ll see you all next Monday while traveling to Houston for scans Nov 1st.

    Waiving hi to all 🙂

    Hi all! I shared in the Monday group about the surveys I do with RC Horowitz. I’ve done a few, and they are a wonderful group who have clients who survey those of us with cancer.

    They are searching for others for paid surveys. I am attaching a flyer. If you meet the criteria, please call Devi at the number listed and let her know I’ve referred you. You can also private message me if you have questions.

    They are also requesting for you to be within three years of diagnosis.

    I will also be posting this in other groups, so my apologies if it’s double posted.

    Kris B.

    Mods, if you’re not already planning to do so, please email the link to this thread to those attending the zoom meetings. I believe several who call in are not active in the community threads. This way they won’t have to search.

    Does anyone remember one of us saying to "avoid wearing copper bracelets"? I thought it was during a support group meeting. I tried going back to the notes from the Chat sessions, but didn't have any luck finding it there.

    Thank you.

    Hi everyone - this is Cheryl. I'm going to aim to post an update each week on Sunday night or Monday morning prior to the Zoom Meeting while I'm on my hiatus. I'd like to check-in with you guys to let you know how I'm doing with my commitments to maintain my workout routine and my overall self-care during my interim work assignment. Tonight, I'm working late catching up on email, but my two kitties have been sitting on my lap for the past two hours! (They NEVER do this at the same time - I feel very supported. Hug )

    image alt="">

    I miss you already, and I hope they hire my new boss quickly so I can get back to our call!

    love,

    cheryl

    Hi everyone -

    It's been a busy week, but I was able to get my walks in every day except yesterday and yoga most days since last Monday. One of my really good friends was able to visit from out of town this weekend - it was a last-minute plan, and it was so nice to spend time with her. I had my Xgeva injection on Friday, and that always makes me feel a little low energy for a couple of days, so I mostly rested yesterday. All is good with the job so far. I'll be thinking about you all today - I miss you!

    Cheryl

    Scan results: stable in body (single bone met) and stable/mild improvement in brain (3 tiny spots remaining). Dose reduction for Enhertu begins next week at 80%.

    On our way home now. See you Monday.
