It’s hard to move forward when there’s something looming in the near future that you’re definitely NOT looking forward to. Our lovely cat Joschka was diagnosed with cancer ten days ago, he has an apricot-sized tumor in his chest and probably hasn’t much time left.
It breaks my heart 🙁
He has been our furry friend for over twelve years, so cuddly and goodhearted <3
And isn’t it cynic – 3 years ago he was diagnosed with a heart disease, one that usually leads to death within a few months. He survived that only to die of cancer now. That’s just not fair.
Joschka has to take three types of medicine daily. Until a few months ago, he always took it without any problems, but now he won’t eat anything which might contain his medicine. I have to open his mouth and force him to swallow the little pills, it doesn’t hurt him – but it feels horrible both for him and for me. Now I’ve come to a point where I ask myself if it weren’t better to just let him be. Make his last days (weeks?) as pleasant for him as possible, not forcing him to take the medicine.
I just don’t know.
Anyhow, that’s what is on my mind 24/7 these days. And believe me: The OLW community is a tremendous help in coping with the situation. It is a haven of kindness, encouragement and comfort. Thank you to ALL of you <3
The February prompt was to make a vision board for our word. As I don’t own any magazines which I could have taken for my collage, I decided to make a digital vision board with quotes from my OLW 2015 Pinterest board. My vision board is now my computer’s desktop wallpaper, and I love it!
We’re moving forward day by day.
