We just had such and amazing weekend in San Antonio together! Friday was Honeybear’s 2 month check up. This was the longest we had gone between check ups. So we actually got great news, even though Honeybear has a couple new tiny spots in her lungs Dr. Wiley said “I am very happy with what I see! If this was a fast spreader it would have done it by now but it is progressing very very slow.” I know you’re thinking, if she has a couple new spots how is this good news??!! Metastasis of this cancer is pretty much inevitable. Those of us dealing with it of course pray for that miracle (which I still do) but the fact is most likely it will spread. It could spread aggressively and fast or it could spread “very, very slow.” We have done and are doing everything we can to slow it down and it’s working. Honeybear’s quality of life is better than ever since the spots aren’t located where they cause any problems. So yep it’s good news!!
Friday night my husband had an awards dinner for work at a “fancy” hotel on the Riverwalk. Their pet policy didn’t allow Honeybear but when I explained her condition they made an exception!! Thank you Wyndham! She took a nap in the room while we attended the dinner. Don’t worry we are not bad pet parents!! We checked in on her through the video app Camio! If you haven’t heard of it and are planning to travel with your puppy…….or even your child 😉 you need to download it. On the way to the elevator Honeybear discovered her twin in the giant mirror which made a perfect picture. 🙂 There was only one area where she could potty and it was quite a ways from the room and it still cracks me up to think about the scenario. Once we got down the elevator we had to walk through the very large sophisticated lobby filled with people looking their best. The floors were beautifully polished and the staff was very attentive to the guests. So here Honeybear and I come out the elevator door running as if there is a fire in the building, her huge slobbery tongue is hanging out of the left side of the smile on her face, her vest is jingling with her new St. Francis tag we just bought her and I can’t help but to laugh as we make our way to the exit. It is easier for her to run than walk/hop so I just let her, always puts a smile on my face. 🙂 By the way despite the struggles of this year my husband received amazing recognition for a great year! 🙂 Honeybear and I are very proud of him!
Saturday was the best day! We took Honeybear to the Alamo and Riverwalk. Some people have never seen the Alamo and some have never seen a 3 legged dog, can you imagine them together??!! 🙂 She loved it!! One of the best investments we made since Honeybear has been a tripawd is her stroller/cart. We can do so much more, if she gets tired she just hops in. We do get some interesting looks but when people ask why or see for themselves why their interesting look turns to a smile. 🙂 I do however want to to put a sign on her cart that says “My name is Honeybear. I am a girl. Yes I only have 3 legs since I had bone cancer but I am doing great and I am so happy. Any more questions go to honeybear.tripawds.com.” Haha don’t worry I won’t do it but it would definitely help people understand.
When Honeybear came home from her surgery the first picture I added to her blog said ‘Life is Good’ and that has been our motto for life ever since! I have always loved Honeybear so much but if possible I think I love her more now! She is truly amazing to me. Her love for life is as strong as ever, she loves meeting people and making new friends, she always has a smile on her face and she is always ready for the next adventure! Honeybear is teaching us what really matters in life and that is the time we get to spend enjoying time together. I feel so happy, blessed, thankful and look forward to much more time we can spend together!
