Daisy in October. Could that tag look bigger?
Today goes to the dog's! This is Daisy, she is Ashley and Robert's Italian greyhound. They got her last October as an early Christmas gift from Robert's parents. Ashley has wanted an Italian greyhound for years, and Robert loves all creatures four legged and furry. So when he set out to convince Ashley they needed a dog he knew he just had to find a face that Ash could not refuse.
After he met and fell in love with Daisy he knew he was in luck. He explained that since Ashley was going to school he needed a companion, someone to hang out with, and tease when his wife wasn't available. When Ashley laid eyes on her it was a done deal. She had a home.
Oh yeah, she is wrapped around my finger. (Daisy's inner monologue)
They both love having her around, and miss her currently, but she is being well cared for by the Ashworth's. (maybe even a little spoiled, shh) Her birthday is August 20th, which makes her a Leo, just like Ashley. She loves when Robert teases her, makes funny noises, and generally acts silly for her amusement. More to come on Daisy's likes and dislikes...
*I want to answer the more detailed questions about Robert's health, and the timeline for his care. So I will share as much as we know now and what we are hoping for. His numbers have come up considerably the last two days, and he is no longer neutropenic. His doctor is pleased with his recovery considering his recent transplant. Robert's a fighter. Also today he had a bone marrow biopsy. The results for that will be available Monday or Tuesday, and it will give us much more concrete answers. And when we know, you'll know. For now we believe that this is the only round of chemo Robert will receive in town. We hope that he will be in Tucson for his transplant in late March, no later than three weeks after he leaves the hospital here. Also we are not certain whether Amanda will be the donor again. Other than that we are just praying for his continued recovery, and we will hopefully have new news early next week.
