My Little Friend
This is a photo I took of my sweet little Dylan. It was taken two days after his cancer surgery in January. He has been doing great. :D
Dachshunds are known to be stubborn and determined. He wasn't about to let a "little" surgery get him down! He has been right by my side every minute. I can't even take a shower without him in the bathroom with me. He runs around the house, plays with Nugget and Henry Cat.
Of course he cuddles right next to me at night. I think he likes to feel me breathing right beside him. I know I do...
Last night I discovered that Dylan has developed a small open wound on his chest. I felt something damp under his arm when I picked him up to help him outside. It is right where his surgery was done months ago.
We're going to the vet this afternoon. Being a nurse, I imagine all sorts of horrible things... I hope it is a localized infection that can be treated with antibiotics. I know it is probably something else.
Please pray for us. We knew the time would come eventually. I just hope it's not right now.
