22 Oct

For those of you who know me really well, you know that my pups are my world.  And most of you probably remember the first real love-of-my-life, Betsy.  Well, on this day one year ago, my world changed.  She was diagnosed with mesothelioma- a tumor on her aorta where it entered her heart.  We were 1 of only 33 cases in the US…

That night was our annual Pumpkin Carving Party, so I put on a brave face and carved my pumpkin surrounded by friends.  After everyone left, I stayed up most of the night (with Betsy sleeping at my side)…Researching…Learning…Coming up with a treatment game plan.  The odds weren’t good, but the next morning- a year ago tomorrow, we started the uphill battle that we’d ultimately lose just three months later.

Oh, how life can change overnight…

My dear Betsy...I love you. I miss you. I think of you always.

Let's talk about it!
