To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

World's Greatest Medical Oncologist!

Hello!  Well the Goatmother finished Round 3 of her chemotherapy today.  It was thankfully uneventful, I'm sure due to the great skills of the person you see below.

Kenny G?????  What, the hay??!!!  Goatmother, will you get OFF here!  This is MY blog!!!!!  Oy.  The things I have to put up with around here.

Now, then, the REAL person with all the skill will appear below.  Kenny G has left the building.  Really.  It is safe now.

This is the Goatmother's lovely Medical Oncologist, and let me tell you, she is the World's Best Medical Oncologist!  At least we certainly think so.  I mean how many Medical Oncologists do you know who are willing to appear on the blog of a philosophical goat?  I bet not many, if any at all.  In fact, this might actually be a first.  We may be treading unknown territory here.  But  allow me to say that this woman is definitely on top of things and an asset to her profession.  Plus she is a very nice person.  What a combination, eh?

So one more session to go, and we are so very thankful to have had this wonderful lady on our team.  No one could ask for better.

Okay, we think this fits her quite nicely.

So glad you have such a wonderful oncologist.

Dear Millie,
Us too. Us too!

Melodie said...

It does make things so much better when the people who are treating you are nice.I am so glad you have them!

Round 3 down and 1 to go. With your sweet and lovely and very talented World's Greatest Medical Oncologist. :-)

Best of luck with the following weeks... And with the last session.

Gentle hugs...

A chimney with a rosy hearth, and lilacs by the door;
With windows looking East and West, And a crooked apple tree,
And room beside the garden fence for hollyhocks to be!"

Dear Melodie,
Indeed it does. Plus it shows the depth of a caring soul. We feel so privileged to have them.

Marigold said...

Dear Auntie,
Yes, one round to go! We can do this with the help of our great doctor and the rest of this fine team!

Queen Quattra said...

Now how can you go wrong with Kenny G.? Er, I mean the world's greatest Medical Oncologist? Aaand, she looks like she loves goats.... what more can I say??

Marigold said...

Dear Queen Quattra,
Oh, please, DO NOT encourage the Goatmother on that whole Kenny G thing. Oy. But, yes, who could ask for a better Medical Oncologist, to be sure!

Candy C. said...

The Goatmother is so lucky to have such a wonderful team of professionals caring for her through all of this! YAY!!
The picture of Kenny G cracked me up when I first saw it, thought maybe he had changed careers! ;-)

Mrs. Micawber said...

I thought at first that KG had changed careers....

Yay for the excellent MO! Only the best for the Goatmother. Which begs the question - why Kenny G? (Just kidding. A woman who still listens to ABBA has no right to cast nasturtiums at anyone's choice of music.)


Snowcatcher said...

I'm so glad the Goatmother has been surrounded with the nation's best. That certainly helps in challenging circumstances.

Oh, and Kenny G isn't too bad!

Snowcatcher said...

PS: Forgot to comment on how much I love the quote.

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
Yes, we feel the Goatmother is way lucky to have such great professionals caring for her! As for Kenny, well, I guess you never know, maybe he's tired of making music. :)

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
One never knows about Kenny, just as one might never know why the Goatmother has this unholy fascination with him. There are mysteries in life. As for the Goatmother's doctor, no mystery there. She's just good. :)

Marigold said...

Dear Snowcatcher,
Yes, she is surrounded by the best, isn't she? Now then, not ANOTHER Kenny G fan? Oh, my. How can I stand the insanity? :)

Marigold said...

Dear Snowcatcher,
Thank you! We thought it was very fitting!

Mimi Foxmorton said...

And you deserve every nice person that comes into your life!
(And we deserve YOU!)


Marigold said...

Dear Mimi,
Awwww. Shucks. Thanks. But we sure do appreciate EVERYONE we have in our life!

Kelly said...

Marigold said...

Dear Kelly,
Hello! So glad to hear from you! We miss you!!!!!!!
