Conversations of the Heart

Nearly 2 months into this adverse vaccine reaction with Lilly, I’m still a wreck. At least once a day, Lilly and I have a conversation — brain to brain, heart to heart — that goes something like this.

best dog blog, champion of my heart, heart made from rose petals“Thanks for not dying, baby girl.”

“You’re welcome. Thanks for finding someone to save me.”

“Of course. You’re my best, best friend. I love you with my whole heart.”

“I know. I love you too. You look tired, though. Get some sleep.”

“I’ll try. Sweet puppy dreams. Momma loves you.”

    I’ve not seen your blog for a while, Roxanne; but I thought of you and Lilly very very often. I’m so relieved and so happy to hear Lilly is doing better. It sends a fear in many of us, I know myself, if this could happen to my heart dog. I appreciate so much your awesome journal on Lilly. It will help many down the road. Thank you so much.

    I’m checking in with you daily now. We’re dealing with many of the same issues. Tsar who used to be light on his feet as a cat, now stumbles and it bothers him and me. We’re also seeing drool which is a first for him. The thing that bothers me a lot is the heavy panting.

    We’re fairly sure that he has a tumor, but this was a relatively good week and we just take each day as it comes.
