The first week of February I got informed by Rocky’s surgeon that his Mast Cell Tumor was a low grade level 2. This means that no Radiation or Chemotherapy will be required. A week after this good news Rocky started acting weak and lifeless. I took him into the Neurologist and they diagnosed him with Bacterial Spinal Meningitis. What! Anyway, he has spent time in their ICU ward and has been slowly recovering. This is a miracle and he is such a miracle doggie, because from what I
understand this form of Meningitis has about a 90% fatality rate. His Neurologist has determined that Rocky at some point in his life must have picked up the Meningitis germ and more than likely the anesthesia they used when they cut the Mast Cell Tumor out of his chest muscle in February triggered the Meningitis germ that had been lying dormant in his body. Rocky purely is a miracle, he has been going though all of this and dealing with his heart condition of Dilated Cardiomyopathy
that he has been living with most of his life. I am a true believer in
the power of LOVE!
