Poor Maddux. I’ve been so focused on Toby and then Bear, I haven’t really talked a lot about Maddux. He’s going through an adjustment stage, and I likely haven’t addressed it as much as I should have, because honestly, I never really thought of it as a big adjustment – although, it is.

Another sneak peek at our new addition!
Just a quick little update on Toby’s lymphoma. This is a tricky one, so hopefully I explain it well.

However, a week later they were enlarged again, and they were slightly bigger than they were before, which… Continue reading Toby Cancer Update
