Today we received the news from the vet that no one ever wants to hear: Cancer. That horrible, awful word. Our Jenny has hemangiosarcoma, which is cancer of the blood vessels. It is throughout her liver and spleen. The vet gives her 3 to 6 months, give or take. It’s hard to say for sure. Jen’s white blood count had plummeted in the 8 weeks since her last blood work, and that prompted the doctor to call off exploratory surgery. She did an ultrasound instead, and she saw everything she needed to see with that.
As you can see, she is still quite interested in enjoying her time with Mom and Dad.
She loves being outside and checking out what is happening!
When she visited Aunt Judy, she got to get dressed up for Red Hats. She loves her Aunt Judy and Uncle Dale!
And nothing is better than going camping!
That is, other than a trip to Lake Michigan!
Or a run to Menard’s. They give treats!
Yes, as a dear friend said today, cancer sucks. No other way to put it. But we should all be so lucky to be oblivious to our diagnosis and choose to fetch a stick instead.
Enjoy every moment, friends. Enjoy each and every moment.
