My parents have been here with me to help with the dog, meals, etc. I consider myself lucky my parents are in their 70s and still able to get around enough to help.
My husband was with me while all the tests were being run and the decision was being made whether or not to take it out. Since then he's been MIA due to work and living his life. If we were still together it would've been a more difficult recovery with just the two of us. I probably would've had to hire the pet sitter to help during the day.
Sammy's limping on his bad leg. Not sure if it's exaggerated due to the bad weather or if my dad has been walking him too long in the cold. His next neurologist appointment is next week. I hope the tumor isn't growing again.
