cyprinella: Greta looking at the camera with a very serious face (serious greta)

Greta close upHemangiosarcoma.

Hemangiosarcoma.

Hemangiosarcoma.

I keep repeating the word in my head. It’s especially bad when I walk Greta in the mornings. It’s kinda weird when it happens when I’m doing a power press in weights class. Luckily when my eyes water there it just looks like sweat.

It’s a particularly nasty canine cancer of the blood vessels that shows up in middle aged large breed dogs the most. Most people find out their dog has it because it’s popped like an aneurysm and their dog goes into shock or dies suddenly. I got “lucky” in that I found it while rubbing her belly and noticed the lump.

People who follow me on twitter were treated to a fine rant about how when I called up my vet to make an appointment to get it checked, I was subtly mocked for calling up to say I had found a mass in her abdomen. My husband (who ended up taking her to the first appointments because I had a major work project launching that week) said the vet was actually really impressed I had found it because most owners wouldn’t have.

I’m still debating if discovering it did her any damn good. There’s not really good treatment for this particular cancer. Most of the first page of google results are the 1-3 month survival period after discovery with organ involvement. Of course, most of these cases are from animals that had spleens involved and it’s discovered due to the extreme internal bleeding. We lucky in that there’s wasn’t any organ involvement initially and we caught it before severe bleeding happened. However, chances are very high it will recur in a very short time period. We could do chemo. We haven’t talked to the oncologists yet because we’re both kinda like, why? This isn’t a cancer where they fade away and in a lot of pain. It’s a lot like living with a known weak vein. It’s gonna kill her and soon but we don’t know when.

And of course the killer (ha) is that post surgery, she’s in great shape. We had a crap week where she was in recovery, a frustrating week where she felt a lot better but was still on restriction and then this week where she’s back to her old self. Is she putting weight on because the tumor was removed or because we’re spoiling her? No idea. Is acting slow because it’s hot and humid or is it because she’s got a slow bleed? No idea.

So we’re spoiling her rotten and she gets walks without Zille so she can sniff all the things to her heart’s content. And I keep living on knife’s edge wondering if this is going to be the day I come home and she’s gone or, worse, going poorly.

This fucking sucks.

Vidders.net's Cat(alog)

One of the issues with the Vidders.net network is that there are so many vids on the network that it can be hard to find just the one you are looking for. There is now a very user friendly Cat(alog) that will begin to populate with some of the amazing vids on the network by vidders such as Balistik, Luminosity, Charmax, Thedothatgirl, and many more. There are just about 4 right now but we plan on adding about 1,000 more to the collection but it will not be overwhelming as you will be able to search by Vidder, fandom, musical, artist, etc and find what you are looking for very easily.

This catalog can be viewed both inside and outside the network (so you can get a sense of the vids there). If you are not a member you can view at the following Google site link Vidders Catalog (to view the videos you will have to log into the site to see them). We'll update as we get closer to our 1K goal.

Yes, I shamelessly used the word Cat as an abbreviation for Catalog. The audience for Cats is far larger than Vidding even in a community discussion for Vidding so I hope you understand.

We plan to expand this project and create other catalogs to include other collections of awesome vids. 

If you have any questions send me a private message or if you think it's a question others reading this can benefit from leave a comment.

Whether or not you're a participant, treats are welcome and encouraged at Not Prime Time! All the requests are located on AO3 or in a txt file. And if you're finding that your treat isn't quite fitting a recipient's requests, then the NPT_Producer has got you covered. Anyone who gifts a fic to NPT_Producer will receive an automated comment. Not Prime Time 2017 collection is available for fics 1k words and above while Prime Time Madness 2017 is available for fics under 1k words and non-fic works such as icons, podfic, art, and more.

There are still two more pinch hits left for claiming. Pinch hit #3 and pinch hit #5.

I've been asked whether it's okay to write fics in Wonder Woman fandom. As Wonder Woman is eligible, I'll allow it whether those fics are gifted to NPT_Producer or as treats to recipients you know would like them (not as assignments though).

Stories are due July 3rd!

Four photos from a very old folder. Based on the date, I'm fairly sure I took them on the flight home to Boston from attending Minicon in Minneapolis with [profile] silentmachine. But I can't find any record of that flight so I don't know what stopover city I might've gone through. Click on the image to see all four photos; do you recognize those bridges?

Edit: Commenters have identified the first bridge as the Throgs Neck Bridge and the second one as the Verazzano Narrows Bridge (both in NYC).
