Back to the Beginning: Positive Signs (posted Nov. 24, 2009)

Throughout the day I tried feeding Rudy more varied foods, she continues to drink a lot of water, so I take that as a good sign. She hasn’t had a bout like this since we were in Montana where Richard and I seriously thought we were going to lose her. Oh my gosh, we cried so much! Richard even offered to make a final resting place for her on his property if she didn’t make it.

I stopped at the grocery store this afternoon to pick up some sliced turkey since that’s what got her through the last downturn. People, she inhaled it! A GREAT sign! Nothing like a sick Labrador Retriever inhaling food as is her norm. Rudy has gone back to resting and is still moving slow, but will take it moment by moment and continue pouring on the love therapy!

She still hasn’t touched her normal food which is strange, so I’m trying to get her nutrients in with things like peanut butter and turkey.

I would not fault Rudy if she were too tired to fight on, she’s been dealing with this Cancer for over two years now, talk about a resilient heart! As long as life holds her here, she is not suffering or in any pain, I will be fueling her joy for life and trying to be 1/10000th of the friend she has been to me. Animals, they make far better people, than we do.


About Resilient Heart

TBI x3, that's me! If you had a Traumatic Brain Injury (or Injuries!) and knew you might not remember dates, events, people, etc., would you live each day differently? Would you give more, forgive more, heal more? I am. The statistics for me developing Dementia or Alzheimer's is a high possibility - one, because of the TBIs, and two - because I'm genetically predisposed. Come with me as this present moment is all we know we have... Wishing you all the best - today & always. Blessings, Love & Peace, RH
