We went to town this morning and saw Dr. Bliss and filled out all the paperwork for the Scooter. Now we wait to see if he gets accepted. Next step will be to try to get a ramp built at our front door.
Then we went to a Valentine's Day Breakfast (strawberry banana pancakes with a chocolate covered strawberry -- yum). Very nice. And then we picked up our mail and my new purse arrived (see picture below). I just love it and it's so great that it arrived on Valentine's Day. The dachshund on the right really resembles my little guy Coco. I just love this bag, it was a highlight of the day.
I think that for both of us, the pain is a reminder of the cancer and we are of course happier when there's no pain to remind us of the cancer, if that makes any sense. But we are doing better all the time in accepting the fact that there will always be times of pain and then acting on it rather than letting it get us down.
