Still praying for you. The surgery sounded not so pleasant. Hopefully things start to look up for you. I will pray for someone to give you a resonable price for the breaks

Just know that we are here for you and we are rooting you on.

I hope someone will be able to fix the breaks on your truck. I do believe the best medication is "spend time with goats" just please don't over do it. :hug:

Absolutely....spend quiet time with your girls...watching them chew their cuds and just being content knowing that you love them...don't over do it though.Prayers for a good outcome with your truck and that you will feel good enough to go to the show.

thanks :grouphug: i won't get my truck fixed until next weekend but i have a friend taht is going to make a cage for the back of her truck. we will have to make 2 trips but we will be going.
i am a stubbin irishman & i refuse to stop doing what i have always done. i feel that if i stop going to the shows then the cancer wins & i will just be sitting home feeling sorry for muyself & i just won't do that. i have a lot of folks going to help me at the show & i know my limits so when i get tired i stop.
stacy you are so right the surgery was not fun. they cut in the same place as before & it wasen't even healed yet plus the just used some thing to numb it but i knew every thing they were doing.
thanks for all the prayers i just know they are working & i am going to beat this

Good luck with your show too. I have never been to a goat show outside of a visit to the local fair. But I always make a visit to the animal barns- I love to see the kids with their beautiful, clean goats etc. It's a wonderful thing for them to be doing.
Hope the weather is mild for you- I always connect fairs with hot weather. Hmmm- must be cecause they are held in August around here.

Good luck Fritze at the show, and you sure have a wonderful out look. I do agree with you on the show part. Sitting at home not going to the show, you will go totally crazy. I know you will show that cancer that you are tougher then it and you will show it who is boss.

Good luck at the show, and please take it easy and don't let yourself get to tired. We will be waiting for the show results.

Wow! Fritzie, you did great there! Congrats. I can not imagine how tired you are, I am exhausted (I went to a show too, same amount of time as well) and of course I am not on chemo.

Get a good nights sleep!

:ZZZ: :pray:

well the good thing is my grey hair is falling out. the bad news is that is 90% of my hair :wink: my goats use to pull my hair but i think now it isn't any fun because it comes out to easy & i don't yell. i had a great time but i will be resting for the next 2 days only doing chores. i have chemo this friday & don't want the DR to yell at me for over doing it :angry: i had a lot of folks helping me with my goats. my friend mary lou did the milkinmg for me at the show & she had a group of young girls & boys help take the girls up to the ring & hold them for me. alot of people didn't think i should go to the show but if i didn't have cancer i would have been there & i refuse to let cancer run my life for me. so if it is going to hang around it will play by my rules hopefully i will be back to normal & be able to post more.

Good morning again, Fritzie- it's great your show went so well. It's a good way to sell those buckings for sure.
I hope your treatments go well this week. And that truck gets fixed.

I admire you for having such a great outlook....yes, you should take it easy and yes you should continue to do what makes you happy regardless of what others think or feel that you need to be doing. Sounds like you have wonderful support from family and friends and to have the help you did at the show was just awesome! :grouphug:
