Thanks to work, I missed writing about Mr. Rogers’s anniversary yesterday. But I had to do this today. Given the cancer scare we recently had with the little guy, I feel so relieved to be celebrating a year with him and looking forward to several more.
I have written several times about the problems Emma has been having walking. Last week, we found out she has arthritis in her spine and hips.
As I wrote last week, Ufi has been having problems urinating more frequently. Thinking the problem could be caused by the steroids he is taking for his allergies attacking his liver, we greatly reduced the dosage of steroids he’s taking and made an ultrasound appointment. Today, he went for his ultrasound. As the title indicates, his liver is fine!
Less than a week ago we got the good news that Mr. Rogers doesn’t have cancer. Now, we are worried about Ufi’s liver.
The title says it all: Mr. Rogers does not have cancer!
Mr. Rogers had his left eye removed yesterday. Going into the surgery, we were hopeful his long-term eye problem had become glaucoma and removing the eye would make him better. The vet believes there is an 80 percent chance Mr. Rogers has cancer.
After my last personal update, I thought I would share news about Emma and Mr. Rogers.
This isn’t a happy personal update; in fact, it’s the saddest one I have written. Animals are wonderful friends. Watching them get old is so hard though.
It looks like spring is finally trying to spring. I won’t say it has sprung, because cool rainy weather may return this week. At least we have had a few nice days lately.
I’m a little late with this, but it’s time to recap my 2018. On the whole, 2018 was a great year for me. I left 2018 feeling as good about the future as I can remember.
This year in review will have two main sections:
- Things that Didn’t go as Planned
