I love the light here when the sun sets on stormy clouds.
And our personal storm clouds became much brighter this week as we got a great report from the liver specialist: The targeted chemo worked, the tumor is gone. The Hepatitis C medicine is also working and the virus is gone. Unfortunately, liver tumors come back and the only hope for a cure is a liver transplant. But this is what I hoped for, buying some time.
Time for my husband to build up his strength, for him to be able to enjoy his life until the next phase of this process. Hopefully, that will be a successful liver transplant. But I am unable to think that far ahead.
The other morning, I woke up to see a bright red sun rising over the mountains. I went outside and tried to capture it. The air was smoky from the fires up in Northern California and I thought, how amazing smoke can travel that far.
I was unable to capture the bright red sun, but something interesting happened. In the two pictures above the strong red color of the sun is reflected in the juniper branch, which perfectly captures the actual color of the sun. Something I couldn't do.
Little Faith is getting bigger and bigger each day. Something interesting is happening to her looks. Her ears are changing to not quite upright, but half-way there, and her face is getting longer and thinner. She no longer looks like a lab, although I am sure lab is in the mix. She loves nothing better than playing in the water bowls, tipping them over, putting all four paws in and splashing away. I should get her a kiddie pool, but she would probably destroy it in no time.
