Is there something wrong with your life?

“If you don’t own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything
wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life.”

Roger Caras

Well, there’s been things wrong with my life from time to time, but when I think of the right things in my life, it always includes a dog.  Bandi is our only dog since August of this year, and now we face not knowing how long we might have her with us.

We’re on day 11 since we were told there was not much we can do to cure the cancer that has most likely invaded her leg.  And it has been close to 3 months since Bandi started limping on her leg.  It would seem to me that if the cancer was as bad as the veterinarians say, that after two months Bandi should be very sick.  However, she does not act sick.

Bandi is surely in pain, and she gets pain meds every 8 hours.  She’s also on steroids for inflammation, and a dietary supplement to combat the decrease in her immune system caused by the steriods.  But all in all, Bandi doesn’t ACT like she has cancer.  I really hope she doesn’t.

I think we will get another set of x-rays in a couple of weeks to see if there have been any changes in her leg, abdomen or chest.  Until then, we continue the routine of medication.

Bandi is still one of the most RIGHT things in my life!
