A Race report with all of the joy and memories of the weekend will come, but first a hit of reality stopped the post-race fun...
Daisy is hurting. She has been limping and I just wanted to say that a 13-yr-old dog is supposed to have some aches and pains. I thought a trip to the vet would be the prudent thing to do. The vet said that she needed an x-ray. So, this morning Flyer and I dropped her off for her x-ray.
Then the call came...there is a tumor and we need a biopsy.
She has been wanting to run and play, but she has been trying to tell me that something is wrong. Now it is just wait and see. I get it. This is part of life. This is reality. But that doesn't mean it feels any better.
So, for at least a little while, until she comes home and I show her a brave face, I hurt probably more than she does.
I know, "she is a dog," but in my world she is my family. Please pray that whatever outcome I get is one that will allow her some time, some comfort, and a chance for a few more runs!
