Toby, my best friend

Thursday, February 07, 2013

My dog is at the vet today to get a full body x-ray. It's expected he has cancer because of his white blood cell count and the large amount of weight he's lost recently, but we'll know more after the doctor can examine the x-rays and see what's going on inside. I'm on pins and needles. I won't allow myself to get my hopes up, even though I do keep thinking that maybe, just maybe there's a chance the initial tests didn't get the story right. Most of all I'm trying to face the facts that Toby is nearly 13 years old, and has lived a pretty, darn good life. I'm hoping that armed with what we learn today we will know what to do next. For right now, Toby still enjoys walks, car rides, and a good meal. I'm trying to enjoy him and not take a minute for granted. I hate leaving him all day to go to work. This weekend we're going to take a road trip so we can have a whole day together doing some of Toby's favorite things. This is hard. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

    I will be praying that Toby receives a good report, and is able to enjoy the rest of his days in comfort.
