This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Today is the day that I have to go to that vet person and get this lump monster out of my mouth. It’s been there too long. Like the smell that lingers when Fruitycake leaves the room.
I joke about it, but I don’t like today in many ways. The pain and the unknown. The stress on my persons. The stress on Fruitycake. The stress on me. I don’t like being sick.
And so what I do like about today is that maybe there is a chance I will feel better. If we do nothing, nothing will change.
Today is today. I have to get thru today. And tomorrow is tomorrow. I will have to get thru that too. Recovery is sometimes harder than what we have to go thru.
I’ve learned that life sure has stages. Things seem to be going good. And then all of a sudden, everything is wrong. I don’t know why that happens. But it’s hard to take. It’s hard to accept.
I don’t want to seem ungrateful though. My persons can get the care I need. And some dogs don’t have that opportunity. So I will try and concentrate on the good that will come of this. I will try to remember I have more adventures to go on. I will try to remember I have more people to encourage that they should adopt.
Today is today. And tomorrow is tomorrow. Every day comes with its own anxieties. But it also comes with chances to get better.
My persons say that they will update you throughout the day. They will make sure you know what is going on. I need all the love and good vibes I can get. Both today and tomorrow. Can I count on you?
