Jill's Journey

Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

Happy NINE Month Ampuversary Jill!

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 10:35 pm on Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Tomorrow is Jill’s NINE month ampuversary!  Unfortunately, just like her 8 month ampuversary, I will not be home to celebrate it with her as I will be traveling for work 🙁  So I thought I would post tonight so this time she wouldn’t have to break into my computer and post a Happy Ampuversary post to herself!

Well Month 8 started out rough, not knowing why she was losing weight.  A few days before her 8 month ampuversary she went to the vet and I was scared speechless about this weight loss.  We now know it was from the leukeran and she has now been off the leukeran for about four weeks and has gained lots of weight back and is doing great!  I can just tell she has her spark back.  I can just see it in her eyes, her coat, her actions, her face.  My little girl is back and fighting the good fight!

It’s been a really hard month around here on tripawds, sometimes it’s hard for me to share our good news. But I tell her everyday, she is fighting this not just for us now, but all our friends that we have lost.  I know she has guardogian angels looking down upon her now and we are determined not to let them down.

Here is a video of me letting her give me some kisses and she gets a kiss in return:

And some pics of Jilly acting like a dog, rolling on her back and then some where you can see how alert her eyes look now and the shine they have 🙂

Hoppy Ampuversary Jill.

I am glad you have recovered from you weight loss & the scare you gave your mom. You fight the fight for you & her. You have lots of angels watching over you. I know we are proud of you (I say we because I know Sassy is too). Keep kicking butt chemo buddy. We love you bunches

Guardogian Angels? That’s good Jill! Proud of that one I bet!

WOW! What a milestne! Yeah, lots of ups and downs but you seem to prefer the ups a lot more, so let’s keep it that way, okay? We prefer the ups too!

And as far as sharing good news…..that’s what keeps us going! That and great photos and videos!

Jill leaning in for the kiss! That’s a keeper! The bond you two have is so special. I really is.

I wish I could remember what the post was, but it was when Jill was at her lowest weight and you posted a pic for an ampuversary maybe….or so eone else’s ampuversary? Don’t remember…but I do recall how her eyes looked ad I remember being concerned.

NOW! No worries! Look at those eyes! Bright! Alert! An astonishing green! The prettiest cat in the land! And the abndance of whiskers…good job Jill!

You’ve been watching videos of dogs rolling around n their backs jave yo? Notice that they roll around on dirt amd grass, not luxurious “mink” blanket!

Please keep sharing the good news! I really do live for all the good news and celebrate with each of you. I cry a lot too but that’s okay so many ups and downs. It has been a hard month but stories like yours keep us all going.

I told her how well you are doing jilly with that spark in your eyes and living strong – maybe this will help her. hugs, kisses and best wishes, Virginia and Dixie
