Our new vet’s input yesterday

January 15th, 2010 · 9 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!She was very impressed with how Raven looked considering her review of his case and the ER and ultrasound reports 6 weeks ago. 🙂 He has taken another turn for the better yesterday. We have a theory that we think makes sense: He was doing GREAT […]

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Please bear with me if you are not Christian, the quote below is so wonderful… I have this book of daily encouraging words called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. This morning, I have quoted below what it said, it is always written as if spoken by […]

Having a few bad nights and adjusting meds

January 13th, 2010 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

He’s very tired. He’s had days like this and worse, so I am not going to freak out. He goes with me on errands to town and hopped to the truck, telling me I can’t go without him. But he’s so tired/weak. He stumbles more and splays his hindlegs to balance. I am wondering if […]

Raven is the best he’s been in a long time

January 9th, 2010 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

I sure hate to jinx it, but it’s just plain wonderful enough that I can’t help but share it. He honestly is 100% in attitude/behavior now. We did a recheck of bloodwork and his white and red blood cells were both completely normal. On Dec. 7 his liver was enormous, riddled with nodules (never biopsied, […]

Raven’s fun day with Cemil and Alle at the vet

January 4th, 2010 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawd Mom Mary came up to visit again with Cemil and her quad dog Alle! We all met at my vet’s for a check up for everybody. Dr. Tom Sheriff is the best! 🙂 We were on pins and needles when we all went in for Cemil’s xray, and it was negative for mets! WOOHOO! […]

My miracle boy

December 30th, 2009 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

Honestly, every day that Raven still has an appetite, is not uncomfortable, and remains his perky self is a complete miracle. This mass inside his abdomen is so extensive. I don’t even want to take xrays, it would probably be alarming. His belly is a bit distended and his ribcage is popped out a bit […]

Decided against surgery after a vet visit yesterday

December 27th, 2009 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

We discussed Raven’s surgery, I keep flirting with the idea of removing this mass that is giving him trouble. Tom said he just did one a few days ago that didn’t look as bad as Raven’s in the ultrasound. But he got in there and all lobes were involved (like we know Raven’s is) and […]

Didn’t think we’d make Christmas!

December 24th, 2009 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

All Raven’s vets are amazed. Twice I had made the decision to “let him go” and he’s rallied before the vet arrived. His problem is not bone cancer ironically, but the liver mass we discovered at his ER trip nearly 3 weeks ago. They expected that he could go “any day, any moment” from septic […]

Roller Coaster Ride, this cancer…

December 18th, 2009 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

I haven’t updated the blog due to the daily changes in my own emotions. I have spent $2500 in the last two weeks since Raven’s sudden trip to the ER. He was on death’s door there, but rallied with treatment within a few days. He has good days and tired days, but really is never […]

Raven’s Birthday!

December 13th, 2009 · 9 Comments · Uncategorized

His birthday is actually on Tuesday, Dec. 15, but there’s no time like the present and since I work on Tuesday… And, Old Broad Betty the bulldog was a rescue, she didn’t have a birthday, although we think she’s around 12 years old. So, now I’ve decided this is officially her 12th birthday, so she […]
