Hi all!  I have been meaning to post for 2 weeks now; but just haven’t been in much of a computer kind of mood.  Sorry!! Spencer is still holding strong.  We went 2.5 weeks ago for his 2nd treatment with the new chemo.  I had a chance to talk with his oncologist then and to […]

Still going strong!

Just thought I’d post a quick update.  Nothing much new.  I need to download pictures and post them.  🙂  Spencer still seems to be doing great!  No outward signs of being sick at all.  We went for a short hike over the weekend and he loved it.  My brother and sister in law brought their […]

Back at the cabin.

January 14th, 2012 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

The kids, Spencer and I got to the cabin tonight.  He was SO excited when we got off of the main road onto the curvy backroad.  Then he could hardly contain his excitement once we turned off onto the gravel road that leads to our place.  It has been 2.5 weeks since we have been […]

I need to be pissed for a minute

January 12th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

I’m so mad.  I was FREAKED when we first found Spencer’s tumor.  So upset, I was sure it meant he was going to die soon.  Then we found out it was fibrosarcoma, and it seemed almost like good news!  That was so much better than bone cancer.  It was going to be manageable.  But… it […]

I broke the news to the kids today.  As expected, they were pretty upset.  We had a good cry, and then they made a banner for Spencer.  I’ll have to get a picture of it in the next few days.  We talked about making “Spencer Boxes” where they could put pictures that they draw of […]

I’m heartbroken.

January 6th, 2012 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

My husband got back to Atlanta late Wednesday/early Thursday and dropped Spencer off at the oncologist’s office this morning (Friday). Turns out it isn’t his lymph nodes, it is 3 nodules in his lungs – cancer. Best case they give us is 2 months if we bring him home and do nothing but what is […]

small update

December 30th, 2011 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

I didn’t get to talk to our vet today; but he did leave me a long message.  I’m hoping to call back and catch him tomorrow. The oncologist looked over everything and thinks that the 3 masses are the lymph nodes.  We don’t know if they are swollen from him fighting off infection (he did […]
