It is a very special day here… we are celebrating Addie’s 4th anniversary of being diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma. Of course we are not really celebrating the cancer or the diagnosis. We are really celebrating her sheer determination to not let it stop her!These past 4 years have been quite a ride, but we have all grown along the way. Now, we are able to take in stride the daily cooking of her meals, obtaining her large supply of supplements, maintaining those supplements (as none of them can be obtained here in Costa Rica), the UTI’s, and the ear infections. They all just seem normal.
The amazing thing to us is that not only has she lived 3.75 years longer than all the vets said she would, but she is just a few short months away from her 15th birthday as well! Even a healthy, cancer free, 70+ pound dog would be lucky to make it to this age.
She sure likes to keep breaking all the boundaries that people put in front of her!
Happy Anniversary Baby Girl!!
