I recorded this last year when I was coming to terms with Krista's IBD progressing to lymphoma. I didn't know how much time we had left. But I knew we were in the end run. I wanted to have a recording of this wonderful feeding ritual we did nightly as I prepared a raw portion to reward her for taking her prednisilone. In the video, near the end, I say "medicine first" as I put a cup over her raw portion. I scooped a small bit of Rawz into the corner of the plate which I would smear her pill in. Then I would lead her into the office and close the door behind her. We had our nightly wrestling match trying to make sure she swallowed her steroid tic tac. Then I lifted the cup and let her polish off that raw portion and whatever was left of the Rawz pile in the corner. She loved this raw so much that she would put up with this nightly for about a month until we started chemo. At that point, I wasn't certain whether raw and chemo would mix. Sadly, I never got to feed her raw again after we started chemo. She loved this food so much! I am so blessed to have this video of us.
