Cautiously Optimistic

Pepper a couple of years ago
After yesterday's post I was quite sure I'd be updating with sad news. Instead, my friend's wish that the vet would have a good ladder seems to be coming true.

Our Dog Pepper is still in the canine care ward of the good doctor, but he is more and more convinced that her issues are ear-related rather than heart- or brain-related, and that is so much less ominous. Early this evening he said she may be able to come home tomorrow.

I'm more than aware that if she comes home this is a temporary reprieve and not a long-term cure. There is no escaping passing years and the body's wearing out. But I'm so, so much less sad than I was yesterday.
