1/1/2010 - 12/28/2017Lewis was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2017, at the age of only 7. We elected to amputate his affected leg to give him some more quality time, but there were serious complications. He nearly bled out, then stabilized. We nearly lost him to severe anemia, but after 2 blood transfusions, he stabilized. After that, he developed an antibiotic-resistant staph infection. Lewis spent weeks in and out of the ICU, and kept fighting on. After he finally healed, they said he probably had 3 months. Well, Thanks to TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine), he got 7 QUALITY months. We hiked, and swam, and played fetch, and jogged, and cuddled, and stared into each others’ eyes... We siezed every moment of every day., and Lewis was determined to go out on his terms. Just the day before we called Lap of Love, he was playing fetch and hide-and -seek in the snow with his beloved brother and sister! There is a hole in hearts, and always will be. We will love Lewis forever...Holly RendleQuincy, MA, MassachusettsJanuary 9, 2018
