Year Fifteen Begins
Today is Maia's 14th birthday.
I give all three dogs celebratory marrow bones. Maia gets two.
|Maia finishes her second birthday marrow bone.|
|Meadow slowly savors her bone.|
|Finn finishes first. He does everything with lightning speed.|
It was a rough go for a couple of months - on her, and on me. Chemo was hard, but even worse was her loss of all strength while on prednisone. Today, she remains in remission (so glad I stopped after three chemo treatments rather that do all five as the oncologist recommended); hasn't needed any antibiotics for over a month; maintains her appetite and weight; and still enjoys a daily "patrol of the neighborhood" to make sure our world remains as it should, a daily anti-inflammatory helping with aging joints.
Happy birthday, Maia, my special girl. You rock my world.
