1st Chemo Treatment

Mom picked me up from the hospital yesterday and I was sooooo happy to see her! I didn't get any sleep Monday night cause there was a little Yorkie there who barked. ALL. NIGHT. LONG! OMD! It wouldn't shut up! Usually I walk very well on my leash but mom took me outside to see if I needed to potty and I was pulling her the whole way. I was ready to get out of that place and home to my house and my bubba Austin.

After talking with the doctor, mom approved for them to let's start the chemo treatments. They had to do a complete blood workup and all systems were go, so they gave mom the pills to give me with food. It was just 3 capsules, but mom had to wear gloves cause it was a dangerous drug. She didn't touch the pills, just dumped them on top of the dog food, but as clumsy as she is she wasn't taking any chances. BOL

I go next Tuesday for another CBC, but we can do that at my regular vet cause she's closer. Then I go again 2 weeks after that for the next treatment. (so, every 3 weeks) So far I haven't had any side effects, but its only been a little over 24 hours. I'm still very restless and I still have to potty a lot and sometimes I just can't make it so its a good thing mom has those plastic shower curtains by the door cause that's where I go. My appetite is good, I drink, pee and poop like normal so hoping things continue as they are.

Mom read an article that our pals Otto, Sagwa, and Angels Sophie and Daisy's mom posted on mom's book of faces page. It says that prayer is really helpful. Mom's been praying all throughout the day and night and we can feel all the prayers ya'll are sending us too. We so appreciate it. With everyone in my corner, I'm going to do my best to not disappoint, and I'm gonna beat this nasty tumor!

Here's the article in case you'd like to read it; art-of-canine-cancer

Thank you one and all for all the POP, get well wishes and prayers you have been sending me. I can feel their power.

Your Pal,

I will send you positive thoughts Sweetie...

I dont believe in prayer.. but I DO know staying positive... having those around you thinking positive is a HUGE help.

Mum needs the power of positive too.. so we are sending that to her as well.

There is no "disappointment" whatever the outcome. The BEST is the best... and we know it will be done... by you... your Mum... your vets...

Sending Love and Hugsss Darling Girl... for you.. and Mum..... and your Vets...
