Jill's Journey

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

Happy THREE YEAR Ampuversary Jill!!!

Well.  Here we are!  THREE YEARS!  Can you believe it?  I certainly cant.  Wasn’t it just yesterday I was sitting here panicking?  Seems like it!

But no.  It’s been three years since Jilly was at the hospital having her leg amputated. Three years since her journey began.  Now here we are.  She’s a happy, healthy kitty.  Looking at her you would never know she was ever “sick”.  You would never ever know she had cancer, went through a major surgery, went through chemotherapy, went through chemo, tried another treatment that made her so sick she lost 25% of her body weight.  She is as happy and healthy as she’s ever been in her entire life.

We had a check up at the oncologist on Tuesday and she is doing fantastic.  She’s lost half a pound since last year, but everything looks normal, so we’re chalking it up to the fact that my parents new kitten comes to visit and they chase each other a lot.  Her x-rays are crystal clear, blood work is purrfect, hugs are still plentiful.  Sitting in the waiting room there was a family crying.  I was once again reminded of just how lucky I am.  I was reminded that I can never take one single day for granted.  We were truly granted a miracle with this little girl.  I know we are one of the lucky ones and I never ever forget that.

So please join me in celebrating another healthy year for my little girl.  Here’s to another UNEVENTFUL year of hugs, belly rubs and treats.  I love you so so so much my snuggly girl.  You have brought so much joy into my life and taught me to live each day to the fullest.

Yay Jill you are our Hero. Amazing Amazing Amazing hero. Brings tears to my eyes that we get to celebrate this joyous day with you. <3 <3 <3.
You never gave up even with all the little "scares" that you gave your mom in there. I am surprised this time you didn't do your little coughing trick that you usually did when you had a check up coming up lol that you always had your mom freaking out about. Remember those??;) fun times Jill. We love you & your momma and your brudda. Glad you have a new friend to get to play with
