The Labraduo is ready to leap into the new year.
In terms of the Duo's health, Shyla has been seizure-free since she started phenobarbital in March. That is something to celebrate!
As for R, I feel a warm calm about him because he seems to be feeling so good. We will get more information in the coming week. His health will help shape our plans for the first half of 2018. We stopped making plans when we found out about his adrenal and splenic masses because he may need treatment. Our Labraduo's well-being comes first - that's the promise that we make to each of them when they join our family.
We wish you all a happy and healthy 2018. While we all love to say that phrase, the truth is that there will be highs and lows for each of us. I hope that you and I can weather those peaks and valleys with grace.
Most of all, thank you to each of you for supporting and reading my blog. As of January 1, it's been nine full years that I've been posting in this space. When I timidly wrote my first post, I had no idea what I was launching myself into. It's been far better than I ever expected, due to the many people who I've "met" through this blog. I am grateful to all of you!
