YES, we made it! Well more like Kona made it…6th round of (last) chemo completed!
People get tattoos to mark milestones, achievements, tribulations, remembrances. A mark or talisman they can look at, touch and remember its significance. It may conjure feelings of pride, resoluteness, determination, joy, sadness, nostalgia and other emotions.
Our Mark is the shaved patch on Kona’s forearm where the iv needle was inserted.
Each treatment required a new patch and altered from one forearm to the other. Being a dog the hair would grow back quite quickly, but I could always feel the memory of the last treatment when I smothered him with hugs. It’s a testament to how strong he truly is. The final patch is a cause for celebration and a silent prayer “please let this truly be the final time”.
