Its been a while since a proper post came about (yes yes.. this is one of the mighty long winded post). Now seriously... did anyone think that i might have actually kapoots for real this time?

There is a blog on my list... the writer has passed on two years ago... but i still keep her blog on the list as she was such an inspiration to me.

Kapoots we have not. Given up blogging? hmmm.. we could have for a while there. But it got a tad too boring in the real world and i kinda missed some of you. Most of you.. All of you... :) Yes yes... that's a bit of sucking up there. Alright alright.. i miss alllllllllllllllllllllllll of you and i missed blogging.

I went thru a phase of soul-searching. Still searching. I cracked myself up too. Literally. I ate a lot of dairy stuffs.. which i can't because dairy somehow cracks me up. I binged on Mars bar and yogurts and all the yakults. It was a wonderful time to have a Mars bar every night till i finally cracked up. Then i had to stop. No more Mars bars for now. No more yogurts. No more chocolates. Until i am all patched up :)

As some of you might remember, i have a close buddy who's been diagnosed with 3rd stage breast cancer early this year. She has stopped her chemotherapy after the 5th one and refused to do it anymore. She had a terrible double dose on the 5th treatment and she finally gave up on chemotherapy. She didn't want to go through it anymore. We begged.. talked... advised.. cried.. but she just would not listen. One more session... just complete the course. But she refused.

Its been 2 months + now and she has not even had her operation to remove the lump on her breast. She requested for an extention of 6 months from her doctor. She did not want to have a mastectomy. She's having some holistic care and her hair has started to grow. She's taking quite a big gamble right now. Sometimes she just likes to prove to herself that she can be right about some things. Hopefully she'll have the op soon.

I believe a lot of people have survived breast cancer and lived many many more years by having a mastectomy and radiation after that. Losing a breast does not make you any less a woman.

This is my friend two months back

This is life. You can only do so much and everyone does have their right to make their own decisions about how they want to live. I sometimes wonder if i have done enough to help my friend.

I do not know how we got to July. Its just been breezy.. and the days and weeks just went by very quickly. I even forgot about Dom's birthday on the 29th June. Poor fella. Its a good thing he got a big box of gifts from Frankie and Ernie last month. More on that on the next post.

Dom's 10 years old. Still as silly as ever. He's due for the yearly prick and probe at the v-e-t soon. Hopefully them 'vampires' do not steal his blood this time.

If you want to know where to purchase the coooool 'hat' Dom has on... you have to ask Frankie and Ernie. 

I've also been sneaking off somewhere on some Sundays. A place where i can help and my heart is happy. We'll tell you more about that some day.  Till the next time.

Hey Anny,

I've been wondering when you were going to post something I could actually comment on! It's good to read about what's going on in your life. Sounds like you're doing a bit of soul searching.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend but it is her choice.
Personally, I don't think there is a right or wrong decision in this case. Only she really knows how much more she can take. Do you know what I mean? There are a couple of things I have to get my head around as I get older... to accept and to let go. I'm becoming buddhist in my old age ;) I hope she finds alternative therapy helpful and is at peace with her decision.

As for the littlefella, happy birthday Dom! Want to know something weird? Looking at that picture with the BOWL on his head (Sigh. Its okay, Dommy. Your mom is just a blur moo.) he looks more like a little poodle than Dom! Is it only me who thinks this?

Re your blog roll, I think you may have the longest of any I've seen. How do you keep up? But wait! There are some that haven't posted in 2 years. So I guess there really arent that many to read. I clean out my closet every couple of months and if someone hasn't posted or commented in a while, out they go. (Though they sit on my GR.) Yup, unlike you, I am mean and heartless.

Better stop rabbiting. This comment is longer than your post. Take care of yourself friend and thank you for all your support lately as I muddle through my own life ;) Big hugs X

happy belated birthday!

mars bars, are the best thing ever!! they are so hard to find over here though, since they tried to replace them with snickers with almonds, but they're just not the same!

as for your friend, i don't think theres anything you could do to convince her, she's got to be the one to have the strength to keep fighting. i hope she makes the right decision for herself, and i will say a prayer for her, but don't beat yourself up about it.

Ann Oon said...

Thank you Ann :) He did have a good few days with lotta treats..

Ann Oon said...

GLP... thanks for the urmm.. long comments.. hehehe.. i appreciate that.

There's no right and wrong.. about her choice of treatment. It is her life and all these while we have respected her decisions on when and how she wanted to do it. We were just sitting on the sidelines and checking up on her. We provided some facts and some advices and that's all a friend should do.

Dom is a regular poodle.. hehehehee.. he is not very small (he is not a small dog on long leashes :p ). I think he's kinda the biggest poodle in this neighbourhood cos some ppl do ask me what kind of a dog is Dom (he being fat don't help too).. *LOL* The local poodles are usually the toy poodles.

I do have a very looooooooong list and sometimes some ppl complain that my site takes a forever to load.. *LOL* I should probably learn to be heartless.. hehehe

Thank you so much for shedding some light dear Typist. It helps.

Ann Oon said...

Thank you for the wishes Yuki.

Mars bars are THE BEST. I hate Snickers... becos of the nuts. I hate chocolate with big chunks of nuts in them. *LOL* Too bad you don't get Mars bars over there anymore. I'll eat one on your behalf when i stop cracking.

My friend is a very strong person. Thank you for the prayer for her. Don't worry about me. I've figured it out.

Lorenza said...

I wish the best to your friend.
Aaand that hat is grrrreat!
Happy Birthday, Dom!
Kisses and hugs

Spiffy said...

Darn it, we already paid good money to send out search parties to look for you and you're back. Can you please stay lost for a day or two more so I don't rugi paying those search party fellows? LOL!

Olla Any,

Seronok dapat kembali semula ke sini. Bagus dapat dengar any kembali menulis.

Rizal tumpang simpati dengar kisah kawan Any. Apa pun harap dia sihat dan tabah menghadapi dugaan hidup.

Apapun, Rizal juga berharap Any jumpa apa yang any cari di luar sana. Masa sekarang memang berlalu begitu pantas. Sekejap sahaja kita dah sampai ke pertengahan tahun 2012 kan? Pejam celik pejam celik dah setengah tahun.

Untuk Dommy, memang cun topi tu, any tak nak carik topi macam tu pakai boleh buat penyeri gambar di blog ni. Hehe.

Selamat Hari yang baik Any

Happy belated birthday, Dommy! 10 years old - wow, you're looking young as ever. As for the Mars bars... Well, we're entitled to guilty pleasures every now and then. Lately, I've been indulging on TimTams. I bet Mars bars make a pretty darn good pick-me-up, too! I hope your friend finds comfort and peace with her decision. It sounds to me like she is a strong-willed fighter, and will continue to be... so long as she has your support.
