On our way to Toronto

Well, we (my mom and I), are currently sitting on the train to Toronto. Yay for free Wi-Fi :)

For those who don`t know, I have had a very rough weekend coming on to this trip...
My dog Dubby, my extremely loyal companion for the last 12 years had a stroke on Thursday evening and lost complete feeling/use of his back legs... I prayed and hoped that he would recuperate from it, but after not being able to get up at all and not having went to the bathroom, my husband and I made the very hard decision to do what was best and end his suffering.... Hardest decision I have ever had to make... This dog has been the one constant thing in my life for the last 12 years and knows more secrets and things about me than anyone in the entire world!!!!!!! I saved him from someone who was hurting him when he was 6 months old. They were locking him up in a cage and hitting him all the time. When he first came into my life, I didn`t really want him. I was scared of Rottweilers because of their reputation for being aggressive, but I fell in love with the little guy and he helped me through a lot. I will never forget all the things he doesn`t even know he helped me through.  I am hoping he is happy up in Heaven with his mom and his brothers and sisters. And like the poem said that Marion gave me at church yesterday, He is playing at the Rainbow Bridge, and when I go up there, he will run up to me so excited and we will cross the bridge together. No more pain, no more suffering. May he Rest in Peace. Like my husband said, he wasn`t just family, he was also our friend...and he will always live on in our hearts...

Tomorrow is a busy day. Fasting Cat Scan at 9 am, Chemo Oncologist, Dr. Gupta appointment at 11:30 am and an appointment with Surgical Oncologist Dr. Gladdy sometime in the afternoon. I still have to call tomorrow to find out what time the appointment is at because I never got a call back to confirm the time. May be too tired to post tomorrow the results of the day but will try to do a quick post. We are sleeping at the hotel again Tuesday night as I know after the long day I will be way to exhausted to travel another 6 hours home.

 Thank you everyone for your positive thoughts, messages and prayers
