This was a lot longer but Instagram wouldn’t let me post it w/the character limit. So I’ll make it short - This is my baby Pumpkin, @pumpkinthedoxie
, and my guardian angel. On top of quitting my job because I was miserable and ending a 5 1/2 year relationship in June, my precious 4-year old got diagnosed with stage 5 lymphoma. I was in utter agony the entire summer and almost drank myself to death. I was very, very sick. Utter despair and depression I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. I don’t like the fact that often I was too drunk to drive to and had to uber to his appointments and when I took him in the middle of the night to get an IV from the hospital. Fortunately I realized I needed to get better - for myself - AND for him. When I was in rehab, he went out of remission and was given 6 weeks to live without chemo, which would give him 2 months. I got him back on Sept. 15 and he is doing AMAZING, exceeding all odds given to us from the oncologist and doctors. This photo (and more I’ll be posting) were taken this Sunday.
It’s been 7 weeks since his latest prognosis, and he is acting 100% normal. Eating like a feen, lapping up all my love. He’s actually gained weight on the steroids (which is a good sign he’s eating), and is happier and more loving than ever. I know it is a sign that we were meant for more time together, even if I don’t know exactly how long I have with him. But now that I have a new perspective with sober clear eyes, I know it was the RIGHT decision and I’m thankful to God for leading me down this new path. Now I can enjoy EVERY single moment - and remember every second of it. Now I can be the Mom he loves and deserves. I know he is so proud of me and it just brings a smile to my face. Just another (HUGE) reason I’m thankful for my sobriety and recovery. -
