365, A Trixie Update

Trixie decided to get between me and the model bear, so I snapped a couple shots of her and decided to post an update.  I wish everyone with cancer felt as good as Trixie does.  She either does not know she is sick, or does not care.  Either way, she remains happy, fairly active, and bossier than ever.  She still keeps track of everything going on around her, yaps too much, and shadows my every move.
She demands more attention, but that might just be because she is now spoiled rotten, what with us thinking she had only a couple months to live, and thus indulging her beyond what we already had.  Her hair seems to be thinning; she has an odd cough, which may or may not be related to the cancer; and the external tumor is visibly growing.  I don't know what the internal ones are doing, as we are not pursuing further testing or treatment beyond the steroids and antacids which keep her eating and drinking normally.
Thank you so much to those of you who ask about her and pray for us.  She's been such a blessing to us, and we are very grateful for the time we've had with her.  We did not know exactly what to expect when we learned of her cancer, but we were certainly not expecting good health and happiness to last into the fall!

I'm so glad she is still doing "well". She is such a cutie.

My neighbors dog passed this week... it was sad.

So glad to hear about Trixie. She is so cute.

Congratulations on finishing your tenth blanket and I am sure they will be delighted to have them.

Your son is a very handsome fellow, I like the whimsical smile he has on this photo.

Thanks for stopping by, take care. xxx
