Still life

I am sorry I disappeared... Things haven't been going so well over here and I didn't want to spoil your reality by making mine public... So I chose stillness. The truth, for those who want to know, is that Oscar hasn't been that well at all lately and it's been killing me inside. Last Tuesday he had to have another operation, x-rays, blood and tissue tests, and we are awaiting the results of biopsy, so right now my life is a bit blurry, with a glimmer of hope, but also pretty cloudy on a surface. I simply cannot really focus on anything or anyone but him right now... Tomorrow morning we will finally find out what the future holds. So, please, forgive me for not being around much - I've clicked through my blog roll, just didn't feel like talking much. I hope, really hope, it's going to be a better week and also intend to keep the blog going - after all, right now it's the only thing in my life that remains constant. And in case I crawl into my shell again, just send me a virtual hug and stop by Look-a-Porter as it still has plenty of little posts to browse and is in need of new friends.

For now, I'll leave you with a few photos of Amber... The mood and light here are pretty much spot on for reflecting the emotional side of things.

    1. Thank you so very much Claire! It's even worse because he's a dog and can't tell me where and what hurts. Just back from vets, still no results, but at least he now eats and drinks again... x

  13. Natalia, you and Oscar (and your family) are in my prayers. I had two dogs and it was a very tough time when they were sick. I hope for the best for Oscar. Pets are like family members. I had a rough patch myself these past few weeks. It happens to all of us. Concentrate on him and give him a kiss for me.
