I know I have been not updating regularly. I think of doing it often but just haven’t been able to. Grandpa continues to hang on. The doctors keep saying that he is not as sick as he “should be”, and that his tumors are not as “big as they should be”. But he struggles. And we struggle with him. We are grateful to be able to continue to care for him at home. We are fortunate to be with him and to show him our love by caring for him. When the nurse asks him every couple of days how he is doing, he usually says something along the lines of that he is happy because he is with his family. Which is sweet.
I try to get in to his room and cheer him up with my tail wags and cute face. Grandpa and I are very close. He is one of my most favorite humans. He always is patient and kind to me, even when I am annoying to others. He always speaks to me in my own “woowoowoo” language and shares his food with me. I have been very lucky that my entire life I have been able to live with him. I miss playing with him outside and sitting with him when he eats his meals.
Also, please remember my friend Marley Terrier in your prayers, he often commented here on my blog, and was a good friend of mine on Twitter. (@marleyterrier) He recently crossed over The Rainbow Bridge, he is missed by his family and his many friends from around the world on Twitter. I will forever miss Marley’s stories, his kindness and his sense of humour. I always appreciated that he took the time to read my blog and comment. Marley is forever in my heart.
I want to wish all of my friends a Merry Christmas. Please remember to hug your family close this holiday season. You never know when your whole world will be turned upside down. I will be back before the New Year to check in.
Merry Christmas Friends!
