Brutus Again...

When things go wrong, don't go with them...

Always in the back of my mind is the possibility that Brutus will take a turn for 
worse again.  Sadly it seems that I am not wrong.  Brutus' paw is not bleeding.
He is not biting on it, well not the way he used to, but something is just not right.
Sticking out on his paw is a huge soft "ball" I know it's not good and we have been 
monitoring it for a while now.  Even the vet saw it an she said this might always be 
a problem.  The thing is, this protrusion has been getting bigger every day.

As you can see the part circled is the one that's troubling.  Brutus
has already started nibbling on it, and of course he will have it all open and
bleeding when we are not home.  Always happens.  Whenever Arvid and I decide to take
a few days off, Brutus has a bad reaction in the paw.  Truth is i am getting to the point where
I just don't feel like going anywhere anymore.  Being away is stressful knowing he may be hurting.
For now will just have to monitor it and see what happens, because I'm sure it's not
 supposed to look like this.  For the next few days I will be in isolation.  Not allowed
to even touch Brutus much less take him to the vet.  As you can imagine, I am
already stressed out.  It is for his own good that I don't touch him.  You see today
 I take my radiation pill and it's doctors orders to stay away  from everyone.
Lucky Arvid, he took the first available flight out.  Heading to Chicago.

Today I am very tired.  Have already done blood work,
and will soon be going to the hospital for the radioactive pill.

Hope your day is a good one and remember.
everyday we are given new opportunities and new chances.

Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. 
But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something 
outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you...
