Today is Tootsie's birthday, and she is nine years old. There aren't enough words to describe the joy and happiness that this little girl has given me all these years. This morning we had to go see her doctor because her left eye is just not looking so good.
The news was not what we were hoping for. We were hoping Tootsie would be put on antibiotics for a while and the eye would be okay. Unfortunately, that's not the news we received. There is a mass behind her eye and it is stressing the eye and pushing it out of the socket.
To do the required tests and possibly surgery would be very stressful, painful and of no help to my little girl. She's been through a lot, and things are slowly shutting down. It's basically a matter of time. We wait, we watch, and we enjoy every moment we have.
Tonight we are having roast chicken for supper. This is Tootsie's very favorite food. But first, we will be leaving shortly to go raise some hell at the cable company's office.
Here is a photo of my little girl getting a bit of fresh air out in the yard, and next is my very favorite photo of her taken a few years ago. She is one very special beautiful little kid.
Hugs, Edna B.
