Day 22

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Wow.  I took a long break from posting.  This past week has been crazy.  I didn’t get sick from my chemo yet, which is really good.  I get up and move around a little better now.  I moved really fast the other day because mom, after […]

Day 15

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Well, I got my stitches out today and it felt sooo good.  Then I had my first chemo treatment.  So far so good.  Mom took me to Alaska Feed Company and got me some no skid booties, cause I slipped a little on the parking lot […]

Day 14

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Well, tomorrow is stitches-out day.  I am really glad because they are sooooo itchy.  I want to scratch so bad thatI try to sneak behind the couch to do it, but Mom & Pop are on to me.  They keep making me stay in sight.  I’m still draining a little from one spot, but the […]

Day 13

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

I get my stitches out in two days, I hope.  There is one place on the incision that is still leaking.  I like to be clean, so I try to take care of it when it runs out, but my mom hollers and does this gagging thing like when you chew on a really good […]

Day 9

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

Opie:  I’ve been getting a lot of toys lately.  Here I am with my new halibut.  He makes a really cool honky sound whe I bite him.  mmmmmm halibut….. I am an excellent sleeper.  I can sleep almost anywhere.  Here are some photos of me when I was still a Quad Pawd.  I have lots […]

Day 6

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Opie’s Mom:  Nothing new to report.  Opie is still pretty inactive.  He is still eating good and drinks lots of water.  H will get up to go outside to take care of business, but wants to come inside right away.  Could be that the temps are now below zero and well….he’s half naked.  Quadpawd Opie […]

Day 5

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

I took Opie to the vet yesterday and they gave me tramadol (spp?).  I think he is doing a little bit better, though he is still just sort of sleeping.  He has wagged his tail a few times and this morning he gave his Pop a giant Opie grin: not a toothy grin like some […]

Day 3

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Opie is not as good today as the first two days.  We misread the dose of cephalaxin and were only giving him 500mg twice a day.  The vet actually prescribed 1000mg twice a day.  Called the vet and they said to start with the 1000mg at his next dose, so we did last night and […]

Let it Snow

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Mom:  My first attempt at posting a photo.  This is Opie.  He likes to find his tennis balls hidden in the snow.  When spring comes and the snow melts, I gather up a bucketful of the ones he didn’t find. Opie:  WT…? I didn’t find them because I knew where they were the whole time.  […]

Day 2

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Opie is doing really well.  He is eating and drinking water.  From some of the other posts it seems the dogs are groggy from pain meds.  Opie is pretty much himself, maybe just a little tired.  The only thing the vet gave me for him is Rimadyl and Cephalexin, which I assume is an antibiotic.  […]
