This picture is a week or two before Christmas. Sinatra was doing fine and Dominic was trying to scare him for some reason. God Bless him, he takes everything Dominic does in stride. Although, I must say, Dominic has always been gentle with him.
Thank you so much for all the kind words and prayers about Sinatra. He's doing much better. He has another chemo treatment tomorrow. We're supposed to get a bad ice storm so I hope I can get him there.
Thursday and Friday, last week, I would do a little housework and go lay next to him and cry. He didn't leave the living room either day. I had to bring him food and water. Friday we started the steroids. On Saturday he was up and around and begging for food and he even gave us the "can we go for a walk look". So we went down the street about 4 houses and back.
We are cautiously optimistic right now. I read that if the chemo gets him into remission, he will hopefully be with us for another year max. I'll take what I can get - as long as he's not suffering in any way. He seems happy again - very skinny - but happy and that's all I can ask for right now.
Everyone else here is doing great. I started my job. Although, the room is a mess and there are no plans and tests are behind, I love the kids. They are wonderful. The are cooperative and we are getting a lot done. Once I claw my way out of the piles of unfiled paperwork and stuff - I think I'm going to enjoy this....
OH and I never said "Happy New Year" everyone!!!!
