Day 30 ~ Something That Makes You Sad
When we found out just over 12 months ago that Jordan had prostate cancer, we thought the worst. As soon as you hear the word cancer you know it’s not good but put prostate in front of it, especially for a dog, and your worst nightmare comes true. We were told those words you never want to hear, he may have only 3 months to live. We cried. Our boy, our first born, the love of our lives was going to leave us and not in the best of circumstances.
As you all know, he is still here with us. Our boy as defied odds including a spleen removal, hepatitis on the liver, adrenal tumour, cysts and now a possible tumour on his spinal cord. As the specialist said, he’s a ticking time bomb but he just keeps soldering on.
I often wonder if he is sticking around for us and putting a brave face even though his back legs are not holding up as well as what they used to and we have a few little accidents. He is currently having acupuncture treatments and the vets are amazed at how well he is doing.
I love my boy and I have no idea what I am going to do without him when he goes.
