Coco update

After a long convalescence, Coco is doing much better. She has serious calcification of her spine, especially in her neck. One vertebra is ever so slightly protruding, but not enough to warrant the major surgery it would take to remove the disk. Of course, all of this was ascertained after some expensive radiographs and radiological consultations. But Coco is so totally worth it. And now that she’s feeling better and looking up at me with those big, brown eyes that say, ‘Thanks, Mom,’ it more than makes up for all the times she looked up at me last week with those same big, brown eyes that said, ‘Why aren’t you making this better, Mom?’
