Slowing Down

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

It has been over three months since Toto was diagnosed with cancer.  We had a great Christmas and New Year (very busy!) and now we are trying to get back into our old routine. 

Toto is still doing great…  still playing, still eating, still happy…  But, I feel like he is slowing down a little.  I hope that it is just his recovering from the holidays.  Honestly, my husband things he is doing just fine.  Knowing Toto has cancer, though, I fear the worst.  I fear that the cancer is finally getting to him.  I try to push that thought aside, but sometimes I look at him and I just feel scared.  I am going out of town this weekend.  My biggest fear is that something will happen to him when I am gone.  Whenever anything goes wrong, Toto looks to me for help.  I can’t stand the thought of Toto being in trouble and me not being there to help him.  I am sure I am just being paranoid, and when I come home on Monday, Toto will be there to greet me at the door.  🙂

I went on a shopping spree at Petsmart buying more healthy, low carb food and snacks for the dogs.  I am also still giving Toto Rimadyl… though I am not sure if I should keep doing this.  I have heard some scary things about long term use of Rimadyl, but, with Toto having a highly aggressive cancer, I don’t know if this is something I should be concerned with. 

Toto is sitting with me now, looking at me as to say, “Mom, relax!”  Ok, Toots, I’ll relax.
