      Update on Ellie

      I posted back in June when Ellie was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma of her spleen. She also has a tumor on her lungs and heart. I opted to go a holistic route as really surgery was only an option on her spleen. Going the holistic route has been very comforting to me. She has had a great 4 months, still going strong. 4 walks a day, eating good, and good energy. The past week I have noticed a shift in her energy she is sleeping allot allot and eating is not something she is excited to do. I took 2.5 weeks off work because I was just not functioning so well. I was having a very sad day today so I thought I would post. I am so grateful for the past 4 months but it's hard to see her slowing down so much. I am going to go give her some cuddles right now.

      Thanks for all the support. Yesterday was a good day, it's so up and down. She still sleeps quite a bit but is eating good. I am happy for that. Nothing is sadder to me when she won't eat.
