6 Weeks Post Surgery – Checking In

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

 

I don’t know where to start as I have not posted in a while.  We have had GREAT days and not so GREAT days but I would say we are doing GOOD.  Since the stiches came out we have been taking a short walk each day — it took us about a week to build up but we can do a portion of the neighborhood route that we formerly did.  I am constantly amazed at how well he is doing… he has even hiked his leg to pee!

We opted to go the chemo route to treat Anjing’s grade III fibrosarcoma.  Yesterday he received the second treatment after a one week delay.  The first round was rough, particularly with eating, as one day he would eat scrambled eggs and toast and the next day he would turn his head.  Same with boiled chicken and some of the other meals I was preparing.  We just kept trying different things and finally when he ate his first real dog food meal I just about cried.

I feel much more prepared for this round and know what to expect.  Hopefully things will go smoothly.  I have tried to take some pictures of some milestone events to share… we are living one day at a time and enjoying every minute.

A BIG thanks to my family and friends for all of your support.  I also want to thank this community for all of the shared knowledge and support, it is invaluable in navigating through this journey.

Just this week my pawrents took me out to dinner in the city. I decided it was a good place to nap. Lots of people stopped to visit with me.
