Cabin time

Friday, August 29, 2014

Toby is not doing well. His tumors came back with a vengeance and brought some friends. The area is bleeding continuously. We have figured out how to handle that with some specialized bandaging. The problem? Yeah, Toby thinks they taste great. He's eaten eight so far. Not sure how he's still able to move.

We're trying various things to try and stop his new habit. I'm not sure how much longer he can keep going. We are managing his pain fairly well but still worried that the bandages are going to block things moving thru.

Next week while we're at the cabin, our plan is to spoil him rotten. All his favorite foods and treats. Help him have an awesome vacation with short walks (his leg is too sore for a lot of walks) and whatever else I can come up with to make him happy. The fear being it might be his last week here with us.

I cannot imagine my boy not greeting me at the door every night but his quality of life comes before my broken heart. I love him too much to let him suffer. This could be a very fun but very difficult week for our whole family. Prayers welcomed.



Toby and Maureen at the cabin last year.

    So sorry to read this, gal! I'm sure you will spoil Toby rotten-- and that Maureen will get a bit of that special treatment too this week. Enjoy your special time together and treasure every minute.

My thoughts are with you! Be good to yourself!

Difficult day

Friday, July 11, 2014

Toby's tumor is back with a vengeance. The hair hasn't grown back, but the stupid tumor has. I am not amused.

This morning his leg was bleeding profusely and I couldn't get it to stop. I called the vet and they worked us in. The diagnosis? Nothing we can do, it's a matter of time.

That was hard enough to hear but then the vet started talking about putting Toby down. Um, not just no... How do you know when it's time? Just because his leg bled on my floor doesn't feel like the right time to me. Besides, life w/o Toby is hard to imagine.

On a lighter note: While I had my back turned, trying to get things ready to head to the vet, Toby got up on the good couch, where he knows he's not allowed to be, pulled off the wrap and bled all over my good couch! Grrrrr!

Just not ready to let go.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. I agree with Imin2genes - if his quality of life is ok, then I say spend what time you have together and enjoy every minute.

Cookie explosion... sort of

Monday, May 19, 2014

My family has two major events coming up and I have been baking & decorating sugar cookies. The best part? They do not tempt me at all. I look at them and my hands hurt, my back hurts and my back side hurts from all that time decorating. I'm so tired!

I won't bore you with all the others. I have dozens and dozens of them. Got milk?

    Love them! Those are awesome. Glad they aren't tempting. I can sympathize... I took cake decorating classes once... I don't think I ate cake for months after... LOL!

Vibe vs. Bambi

Friday, May 02, 2014



Alas, the Vibe, in its smashed up glory faired well compared to Bambi. Yesterday was NOT a very good start to the month.

Insurance rep, "Did the deer run out in the road in front of you?"

Me, "Um, no, I had to chase it thru three corn fields before I caught it and ran over it."

What the heck did they think happened?????

Sigh.
