Dear Corbin.

Dear Corbin,

It's been one whole year since I last felt the chill of your cold nose on my cheek or the soft feel of your velvety fur under my fingers. One whole year since I last saw your soul through those deep brown eyes.  You told me your fight was fought and your time here was done. You gave me peace in knowing that decision was right, and any other decision would have gone against my promise to you; that I would never keep you alive for me. You were my life and I wasn't quite sure how I would go on without you.  But, your love gave me something that will be a part of me for the rest of my life. Your purpose here on earth has lived on in the hearts and through the hands of all those you touched.  The world is a brighter place for having had you in it. Your light shines on and only gets brighter as the days pass.

I miss you with every waking moment, more and more every day. I'm thankful to feel your presence with me, and I know I will have you with me always. I needed to find you. You were everything I didn't think I wanted, but fate had other plans. You awakened a part of my soul that I didn't know was there. You brought purpose to my life and lit fire to my passion. Thank you for loving me and letting me love you. My boy.... I miss you.

My heart. My soul. My Corbin.

I love you, Corbee Doo.
Your momma

Diamond update

Diamond's surgery went very well. They were able to remove her spleen and the tumor without issue. Her vitals and blood work have stayed consistant since surgery and she has been home resting. She will have one more round of follow up tests tomorrow morning before getting the all clear.

She's a tough old gal! She doesn't like hearing that she needs to remain calm and rest. It's so amazing to see her spring back so quickly, although, keeping her quiet so she can heal becomes a challenge, but she likes to snuggle, so it just means we have to be home with her more. Who could complain with that?

Thanks everyone for all the thoughts and prayers. I'm so glad the surgery part is over and we can move on to recovery!

Diamond needs POTP

Diamond's 2016 didn't start off as easily as we would have hoped for.  She went to the vet for a scheduled dental surgery on Monday, January 4th.  Abdominal x-rays were done before surgery because during her December visit when a heart murmer was detected, she was too wiggley to have them done. The xrays revealed a mass in her abdomen.  Surgery was put on hold and an abdominal ultrasound was done.  The mass is attached to her spleen. Since this mass could rupture at any time, Diamond's need for surgery was urgent. She went in for surgery this morning to remove her spleen and the tumor.

This surgery was completely unexpected, but necessary to save Diamond and give her the chance to live out the rest of her life, like she deserves.  

Please keep our girl in your thoughts today. 

Since Diamond is under the Mr. Mo Project, her medical costs are covered by the project. I set up a YouCaring page to help with this huge unexpected cost. All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated! If you'd like, you can donate HERE
