Happy early Valentine's Day to everyfur in Dogster and Catster land. Mere moments ago Sister received a phone call from Mom and myself. It was a hectic moment for Sister at the office, but she had to take our call of great news coming all the way from Louisiana.
Since December 14th, I have been on vacation down south with Mom, to escape the cold winter. Until yesterday we had spent the majority of our holiday in San Antonio, and various parts of Texas.
Back at home, Dad (who had not yet left for Mexico) Tux, and Sister received news of my rejouvenation. None of my arthritis problems were showing, and the warm sun had me running around like a puppy again! My family was thrilled.
However, all of this changed last week. Suddenly I began bleeding and throwing up. Weak and unable to move from the pool of blood I was lying in, Mom scooped me up and took me to an emergency vet hospital. After a multitude of tests, x-rays, and IV's, it was eventually determine that my weakened immune system was not allowing me to fight bacteria in my body. Where and how I got this bacterium is unknown, and at first was not appearing in any of my tests.
The important thing is that I have regained my strength, and was able to make the 7 hour drive to Louisiana. In two days, I should be well on my way back home to Canada. Once back and settled in, Mom will take all of my paper work to my vet.
Sister is so looking forward to throwing her arms around me and welcoming me back. I promise to never leave again for such a long time. That also goes for my presence here on Dogster, that Tux recently wrote about in his diary.
