    Smile off and on

    Hi everyone sorry have not been online much other then dreaded face book, been feeling better and trying to get into shape. Have been trying to stay away from the computer and spend more time walking, exercising and spending time with Chance. Now that i am getting better he has been forced to remember and practice what he learned earlier and his pulling has gotten better. Chance now knows who is Alpha and has relaxed more and listen more.
    Miss the chat and banter with you all, Hoping everyone is well as i said am doing so much better have a petscan on May 5th to determine if there is any trace of cancer - last one in September last year was clear after the operation. I see the Oncologist at the end of this month to set a date for my completed neutering and shop for replacements. Another operation some time to heal then we can start working on my heart, hope to return back to work in September. Have lost nearly 20 lbs since getting out of the hospital with another 100 to go. I have even returned to volleyball picture it a 50 yr old out of shape man just out of the hospital playing intermediate play with people 1/2 my age and younger. They were very polite and encouraging however it did not stop then from playing full out.
    The other half has been gone most of this time working on Vancouver island - Campbell river for two months we talk daily and messenger each other home every third weekend but sure is lonely. Good in a way he would not like having basketball on all the time anyway. He will be happy that he does not have to take Chance out anymore now that i am able.
    Hopefully i get back here sooner than what i have been and that all of you are well and enjoying Spring - Huge hugs and best wishes

    Glad to hear from you! And with such a great update, so happy you are feeling better!

    I haven't been around the internet too much lately for the same reason, I feel better so now I can't stop doing stuff! Yardwork, projects, housework, things I have let go so badly this past year. Makes one appreciate their health now so much more... doesn't it?

    Give Chance my love and hope you get good news this next update.

    Neutering scheduled for June 17th a Friday - sympathy drinks all weekend - same day as one of my favorite Bully's B-day Orion. Sorry Orion no prairie oyster for you but sure your Mom has something special for you. It is a very odd feeling and a sense of loss - there will be replacements I met them today a little harder and rounder than i thought but the silicone ones were banned last year. Was told I could always exchange them a little later down the line.

    glad to hear that you starting to feel better
    Seems we're a bunch of demics here. I too have been away due to ill health, I have a lot to do here in the house and its taking so much longer than planned because i am so fatigued.
    seem to spend my life either working eating or sleeping these days, its any wonder I dont weigh a ton

    I too will try to get here a little more than i have been though xx love and hugs to all
