TESIA ASKED ME FOR DINNER LAST NIGHT!!!
First time since all this started in November. She has either not wanted to eat, had to be coaxed over to her dish, or slept through dinnertime every night. But yesterday, I was lying on the couch watching TV, and she came over at 5:30pm (half an hour early!!) and did the quiet stare. I was like, "do you want supper??" and she stood up and looked very excited. I didn't even care that she was early. I threw a party and fed her a little extra on top of it.
I am definitely feeling better since her surgery Friday. I was expecting her to be nauseous again, very tired, etc. But she is doing SO well. My only worry right now is her bare skin out in the cold, so we don't stay out for long. I took her over to the park yesterday, just so she could stretch her legs. She was so happy and she sort of skipped around the field. A woman who was leaving as we arrived said, "she looks very happy to be here!" I said, "you'd never know she has cancer and just had a fourth surgery on Friday, would you?" She was floored. We stayed all of five minutes because of her bare bum, but we'll go again today.
And maybe... I'll even put up some Christmas lights today.
