I was going to do a different post this morning, but opted not to. I am feeling stressed and a little "down"...not making for a very interesting post at all. This will pass...I just have to have some tea and relax for a bit and sort my feelings out.
Our dog had her checkup from her operation on Friday. She is recovering very nicely, however there is another issue. She has a tumor on her mammary gland. We will wait two weeks and see if it shrinks...which it very well may because of the operation she just had, but at any rate, we need to deal with it. The thought of loosing our dog to cancer, should this be cancer, is scary and depressing. This dog has been with me almost 24/7, since I left my fulltime job in 1999. I've always had a dog, but I've not always spent this much time with the one I've had. She has her little quirks and routines with me each day, and the thought of her not being around to spend the days with me, is sad, very sad. I know I am looking on the dark side of all this...it could turn out very differently,so we'll have to wait and see.
Also, the day we will take her back for her assessment on this tumor is the kids last day of school. I have no idea what this summer will bring. I hope fun adventures, and enjoyable times for the kids. Should our dog have to undergo another operation, this will mean some quiet time at home for the kids, and not camping, etc....for a few days anyway. Something we will have to discuss and deal with.
Another reason why the glum post...yesterday was Father's Day, and my 4th without my dad. I miss him...his wisdom, his conversations, the wonderful things he did for me, my husband and his pride and joys....his grandchildren. My dad didn't have to do anything for my kids to enjoy time with him.....he was just one of those people whose presence you enjoyed. He was a very quiet man, his life was his family.....we all miss you a lot dad/grampie......god bless you and take care of you.
So fellow bloggers....I'm going to go and have that tea and see if I can shake this mellow/sad mood........
