Regardless of what the day holds, K and I always try to start it with a sunrise outing on our trails. I especially treasure it on days when the rest of the day looks ominous. K glowed red this morning at sunrise. As we stood atop a ridge, I knew that I'd forever remember my sunrises with K.
Finally, for what feels like the first time in this journey, we got good news!! K has a skin wound and infection. The xrays of her limb showed that the radiation did its job on the tumors and showed no signs of a bone infection - so no surgery is needed. With a course of medications and the dreaded "cone of shame", the wound should heal.
But, before embarking on our scary day, K had an amazing surprise arrive at the front door this morning - an unbelievably generous gift from some of you to help K through her cancer treatments.
The box caught her interest immediately. Hmm, Orvis... I wonder what it could be?
After receiving her gift, K headed off to the hospital for a day of tests. When she returned, she was tired and had to wear the dreaded cone. That combination could make any dog grumpy. Because of your incredible gift, she had her very own bed for comfy snoozing. She's been ensconced in her luxurious nest since arriving home.
Just one more note - one of the people who organized this gift is having a scary dog health crisis, and her dog, Lilly, will be in the hospital for a few days. If you could lend her support at her blog or her Facebook page, it would be wonderful.
