  1. Joey Roberts needs surgery to remove a mass on his thyroid

    Bad News.... I got the pathology report back today. The mass was a type of thyroid cancer. It had grown into the carotid artery. They removed the part that connected to the artery but in fear that they did not get 100%, they are putting him on an aggressive chemo regiment. They want me to be very aggressive with it and not to wait. I speak to the Oncologist on Monday to get a date and the dreadful news of how much this will cost me now... At least I know that there are other companies that will assist me now that I have a clear cancer diagnosis. Wish me luck.

    Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Work has had me crazy busy. Joey is doing great. He has been weaned off of his pain meds and is very spunky. He seems to have a lot more energy in him now...more so than before the surgery which brightens my heart. Poor thing...everyone is nicknaming him "Frankenweenie" cause of all his incisions and the staples...guess the pitiful looks contribute to the title too. He is obviously not in as much pain. however, he still milks it for the attention. My friend laughs every time I come home...she says that when she is with him that he is fine and bouncing around, but as soon as I get home, he drops his head and starts making pitiful grunting noises cause he knows I'll give him so much attention. Overall, I think he's doing great. Still no word on the pathology tests. Fingers still crossed.

    Joey is back at home resting comfortably.. The first thing the doc said to me when he called today was that Joey was happy, perky... and had a huge appetite! Well I'm not at all surprised at that news. LOL.

    Joey got through the surgery just fine. They did find a fourth mass while in there but the Surgeon was nice enough to remove it without charging me any extra. They said the mass in his neck was very vascular...I don't know if that is good or bad...but he has been in recovery for a half hour and they say he is very alert. Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts....it worked!!

    One more day then the hard part starts...lifting his chunky butt up and down the stairs all day. heeheehee. At least I know that I will have a good two weeks of not having to watch out for food being left too close to the edge of the counters or locking the fridge tight. He's such a mess. But I love him. He's got a lot of people praying for him. Im just hoping the surgery goes well and there are no complications.

    Thank you so much mikken. There is a saying that I read once that makes me think of Joey. Its a dog cuddled up to his owner and saying "There are many humans out there, but this one is mine." Every time joey comes up to me and sits down (always on my foot for some reason) he tilts his head up and his big ears flop back and he stares up at me....I can see it in his eyes and almost hear him saying it to me. He tugs at my heart strings....and then he tries to steal my food! LOL
