After the vet appointment, I took Sydney to my Mom's house. The last time my Mom saw her was in February and I wanted her to see Sydney in case something happened to her. My Mom really appreciated the time with her and got rather teary saying good-bye.
In the good news department - Mark's Mom seems to be doing much better after her surgery last week (and will even go on a trip with my father in law in about two weeks.) Her arm is a bit numb because they had to sever some of the nerves, and her incision aches a little, but all in all she's doing well. She'll be going in for radiation soon after she gets back from her trip.
I know there are those who are going through so much more than I am right now and I wanted to apologize for making such a huge deal out of Sydney's condition, but Mark & I have no children and Sydney's been a HUGE part of our lives for the past six years. I know that when she's gone there will be a HUGE piece of my heart that's missing. I'm trying to remain positive about all of this, but she's starting to look worse every day and she's become only a shadow of the dog she once was. I wish I could make her feel better and to have to see her like this day in and day out is increasingly difficult for us.
