Globfly’s 39th-Month Angelversary

Today marks Globfly’s 39th-Month Angelversary—three years and three months since he relocated to heaven on 12/17/18. Time keeps on ticking by when it feels like just yesterday. 

This Angelversary is an emotional one as it also marks the anniversary of Globfly’s first 10-hour surgery to eradicate cancer from his thyroids and lymph nodes. It turned out to be a moot point. Cancer refused to be annihilated, requiring a second 10-hour surgery a year later. Yet, cancer hung in there. However, Globfly was a trooper and fought the losing battle with numerous radiation and chemo treatments for eight years. Once leukemia jumped into the game, no transfusion was enough. His organs couldn’t take it anymore, and in the end, they began shutting down, one by one, and it was game over.

Every St. Patty’s Day for as long as I could remember, Globfly went to McDoodles (that’s what he called McDonald’s) for a Shamrock Shake around this time of year. However, he missed the last couple of years for various reasons. I forgot all about it until this week. So, guess what I’m honoring his memory with this month? Yep, you guessed it. I am honoring Globfly’s memory with a Shamrock Shake. Remember I’m always scouting new treats for him? Well, guess what I found at McDoodles? An Oreo Shamrock McFlurry! I know Globfly would’ve loved that, so I got him one. The creamy vanilla soft serve, blended with McD’s original Shamrock Shake syrup and OREO cookie pieces, was right up his alley. “Whaddaya think, Globfly? Good, right?” Since Globfly missed so many years, he gets both treats this month.

“Globfly, here’s to you, honey! I miss you SO much, every day, more than words can say! ILYVVVVM.”  💜🖖👊
