Happy Ampu-Versary, Henry!

Recommended Posts

When we got Henry's diagnosis last year, the vet had told me that best case scenario, I'd have 6-12 months left with him. But today, my boy marks the first year of his journey into tripawdhood, cancer-free.

 

The night before surgery, Henry's friends threw him a tripod-to-be party in the lobby of the e-vet's office.

After the surgery, in his "hospital bed." Note his special GT Secret Santa gifts from Chris. :)

Two and a half weeks after amp (Henry's 6th birthday), hiking like a boss. You can see his back end is still shaved.

(This was when I stopped doubting I made the right decision)

Playing in the mud, three months post-amp (less than a week after his first chemo session).

Henry had so many supporters- he got stopped on the street by people who followed his cancer thread.

Seven months post-amp, during the photo shoot I scheduled when I thought he was going to die.

Happy ampu-versary to my special tripawd.

Oh, Alicia, that is awesome news! He looks great, and seems to have adjusted beautifully. It's a scary thing when you are trying to decide---I'm glad he has gotten (and will continue to get) so much wonderful quality time. It's amazing how much positive attention the tripods get, isn't it? I know Winnie inspired so many people, even an elderly man who had to have his foot amputated. And when she did the obstacle course at GIG, there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd!

 

I LOVE that picture of him in his pre-amp hat. He is adorable!

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
