Turtle update.

I hit the weights yesterday like a man possessed. I think all the stress and emotion I’ve been feeling lately came pouring out in the gym. I have a feeling that today’s chest workout is going to be equally as fierce…

I’m in a huge rush this morning because I have to have Turtle at her veterinarian’s office in less than an hour. She’s going in for surgery to remove the tumor regrowth that I found on the back of her tongue this past Saturday. She’ll also have some xrays done to see if the cancer has spread. If the cancer has made its way into her lungs, then there’s nothing more that can be done. The experimental malignent melanoma treatments she’s been undergoing for the past seven months are only effective prior to metastasis. Once the cancer spreads, well, it’s only a matter of time.

I want to thank everyone for all their support and kindness. It has meant a lot. Coming to grips with the grim reality of the situation has been extremely difficult for me. The prospect that I may only have a few weeks left with my beloved friend is devastating.
