Journal Pages...

Well, we went to see the Oncologist and the news was not good...He gave Clancy 4-6 months to live depending on how aggressive the tumor is and if it has spread to his chest. He said a very difficult surgery and radiation would only buy him a few months due to the nature of the cancer, so we have decided to let him live out his days until his quality of life becomes affected. Needless to say we are heart broken, but grateful that we have some time to spoil him rotten and say our goodbye's. I could not have asked for a better dog and he has brought so much to our lives. Thanks to those of you who have emailed me privately with your prayers and support. It is nice to know that we have friends who care...

On a lighter note, I am getting ready to head out to Raleigh for the Brianna Graham workshop...I hate to go with this dark cloud hanging over my head, but I think it will do me some good to get away and focus on something else for a few days. I have really been looking forward to this and I hope to learn a lot and meet some other photographers. I will definately share my work with you when I return! Have a great weekend everyone and send some love and light to my sweet boy Clancy!

Jill, I'm so sorry to hear the
update about Clancy but you've made the most compassionate decision to let him live his very best life right now without sickness from surgery and radiation.

Your journal pages are so beautiful but heartwrenching. It's such a hard thing to go through...but at least take comfort in knowing that Clancy is lucky to have a family who cares for him so much and who will love him forever.

Dear Jill,
I am so sorry to read about Clancy. My heart just broke when I read your post. I am thinking of you both.
