Hi friends, Happy Sunday!
Onyx's Ma here. I’d like to share some news about sweet Onyx.
In August Onyx was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer (TCC). Onyx was not a candidate for surgery and her prognosis, when diagnosed, was that Onyx will live another 4-6 months. We are currently in month 6.
Finding out about Onyx's diagnosis was devastating, to say the least, and it was very difficult to talk about for some time.
I could not get my head around this little girl never getting a break, I was overcome by the sadness- waiting 6 years for a home then finally living her best life- it was impossible for me to envision her life ending so soon.
For those of you who have gone through this, you know the initial shock is the worst- the sadness, the overwhelming amount of info, the decisions, the panic, the guilt- it goes on and on.
Realizing that it’s not about me and trying to be positive for Onyx, I slowly came out of my emotional mess. All I wanted to do was appreciate how this little bunny has made such a significant impact on my life-
adopting a 'difficult' dog, when I was nowhere near ready to adopt another dog but doing it because it felt like the right thing to do, I eventually realized why she came into my life. Now, even more so.
Onyx is still in very good spirits, she’s her happy, goofy self and she appears to be comfortable.
We take each week by week and soon I know that will turn into each day by day.
For now, we continue to shower Onyx with love and provide her with the experiences that she loves.
Thank you for being her friends.
Stopped at our favorite shop on our way home yesterday. I’m not sure who enjoyed themselves more, Gus or myself. Either way, I’m so happy we got to spend some time with my favorite soap maker and dear friend. 💕
