Here I am again, happy as a clam as I am about to go to Europe with Mom between chemo treatments !
Mom was really, really sad after my PET scan because they found something in my lungs ...
She tried really hard to be cheerful for my sake but I could tell she was swallowing tears, I had never seen her eyes remotely as sad before and I could feel her heart was heavy with pain ...
So I gave her tons of kisses and hugs and looked into her eyes as only I can do, it is the only way I can tell her I love her no matter what and I know she is doing all she can for me, I SO absolutely adore my Mom
I had to stop metronomic treatment as it wasn't working for me and started a new IV chemo treatment called doxorubicin.
Kelvin, my oncologist (whom I love to bits) told Mom I can only have 5 courses because this chemo is very aggressive to my kidneys and heart but I sailed through the first two sessions like a trooper !
After my third dox session I will have another PET scan (at the end of January) and hopefully we will have good news!
So, back to my trip now !!!
I said I am as happy as a clam and so I am but right now I am also booooooooored to tears waiting to get in the shuttle !
Mom said we will be leaving shortly but ... how shortly is shortly ?????
So, after driving through fog for over 600 km we finally arrived in Poitiers where we are spending the night.
As soon as I was settled in bed it just dawned on me I won't be seeing my mom Capri this time ... or ever again ...
I forgot to tell you but my dearest biological Mom has passed away recently ...
Mom and Marcos spoke on the phone and he said she had a sudden heart attack and he was with her when it happened so he gave her many, many, many kisses and told her how much he loved her as she started her new journey ...
I feel a bit sad right now so I'll cuddle with Mom even more than usual tonight but I am sure she will have some wonderful surprises for me tomorrow, she already said that ... YAY !!!!!

Wherever they are, they are together.
Hi auntie Karen and auntie Christine
Sooooooo glad Mom is taking me on a trip !!!
And soooooooo glad I am sharing it all with you
We woke up in Poitiers, France and Mom took me for a stroll before we hit the road again.
Apparently it is Christmas which means all humans are in a good mood (unlike us dawgs who are ALWAYS in a good mood)
Mom and me found this beautiful square and of course Mom was quick at getting her mobile click click click
