I got the dreaded phone call yesterday. I actually missed the call so the the veterinarian left me a voice mail informing me that Ruby’s biopsy results were back and they were troubling. My sweet girl has cancer. It’s not like I thought she was immortal but when are you ever ready to say goodbye to someone you love?
Ruby has been with us since hubby and I got married (he adopted her about five years prior) making her almost 9 years old. She has been through everything with us. Ruby served as a constant stress-relieving energy. She reminds us to live in the moment. Not to worry. Not to hold grudges. To have fun. To be free. To love.
We will be meeting with our vet tomorrow. Our number one concern is that she is pain-free. We want her to continue to life her life peacefully. I anticipate we will be making some very tough decisions.
My hope is for anyone reading this is that they embrace the day. Get off your computer (or tablet or phone!) and make memories with the ones you love. Life is brief and your memories are truly priceless.
