Rocco's Journey Through Cancer

…to the lungs

Here I am again, I haven’t been on in a while. Seems I come here when my stress and anxiety are at a high.

Rocco has been doing VERY well. Eating, playing, loving life again…

Until recently we discovered another lump, but this time near his ribs. He’s also been coughing lately too, which I know to be a sign that it has metastasised in his lungs. 🙁

I’m really trying my hardest to hold it together, for him, for my son, for my family, but when I come to the office and I am away from it all, it hits me the hardest and I end up crying here with my door locked.

I can see it in his eyes when I get sad about it he follows suit, so I really do try to keep it positive at home.

It hurts so bad to know that even though he is the one in pain and the end is nearing, he is still trying to make sure that I am ok.

He woke me up at 2am last night to let him out to relieve himself, he did so quickly and came running back in, followed me back to bed and stood beside me, nudging my hand to stay on him. I pet him and told him I loved him and he fell on my lap.

My heart.

Smiles and Squirrels

Today Rocco is 2 days post-Op and guess what folks;

He’s up and running!!!

I usually work from home but today was an office day. Hubby works the night shift (a blessing and a curse all in one) so he was home with Rocs.

When I returned home, he ran outside and greeted me with a smile on his face like he used to do before this all started.

It was one of the best feelings in the world!

He also got outside in the back for a bit and had his run at a squirrel or 2.

He is a pro on 3 legs already!! but I am not surprised. He wasn’t using the leg that was amputated (front right) for a few weeks prior.  He had lots of practice!!

Mister Rocco is on the mend and we are ecstatic. But we also know it’s still early so he is back to resting for now.

Until my next post, happy tripawding!
