Still Here

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

Thank you for all of your kind posts.  There are not many people who are understand what I am going through, and it is so comforting to hear your own stories and your support.  Reading your comments to my last post made me cry…  again.  I have been crying a lot lately.  But, as my title says, Toto is still here.

This journey has been such a rollercoaster.  I was sure it was Toto’s time, and then…  he surprised me.  I was agonizing over the thought of letting Toto go.  My husband and I decided to wait until the next day before we did anything.  I put Toto to bed next to me that night and the next morning he was a new dog.  He was running outside with the other dogs, barking at people outside, eating, following me around.  I know  he is not “better.”  I know there is no miracle cure for hemangiosarcoma.  But, every day he is here, and happy, is a miracle. 

For now we are back to enjoying the moments we have together.  I am spoiling Toto as much as I can.  I know our time together is coming to an end.  I know I will have to let go… as hard as it may be.  Toto has been so strong for so long.  Now I need to be strong for him.

    Bonus time, miracle moments. Good on you for embracing, cherishing it all, even though you know the journey has an ending. Good for Toto for rallying. What a fighter.

    Oh that is so wonderful that he’s on the rebound. It sounds like he wasn’t ready to go and he let you know. I really hope that he continues to surprise you like this and that you have your Toto around for a very long time! Lots of golden hugs!
