It sounds like Tesia is getting very good care. Sending prayers and good thoughts for both of you. I agree with the advice to try to live one day at a time and not focus on time lines. None of us knows what tomorrow will bring.

That's the spirit! We have lots of GRF dogs that defy the odds and would be thrilled to add Tesia to the list.

I was thinking exactly that today. Reno, Andy... so many others here have beat the odds. It does help me to think positively.

I had a pretty sad visit this afternoon. Tee was so loopy and out of it. I'm not even sure she knew it was me. She was crying for the first half hour I was there. She finally relaxed a bit, but it took more than an hour for her to even lie down. She was all drowsy, her eyes were all glassy, and she was just so not herself. I've been worried ever since.

So I just called a little while ago. They told me I could call anytime, and I knew I would never sleep tonight thinking about her there so scared. They are so wonderful. The intern caring for her came to the phone right away. She told me she is doing really well - she is no longer sedated and is alert and happy. She was getting a little visit and apparently giving her paw as she always does. I'm so relieved. They have to sedate her everytime they go in to change the bandages because she is so scared. I'm going to make sure to go visit her tomorrow when she is NOT sedated. I wanted to go over just now, but the vet was worried she might be all excited and then anxious if I left and wouldn't sleep. I took her advice - it's about what's best for Tesia. I'm so glad she is not sedated and scared anymore.

You and Tesia have been in my thoughts all day. I know it had to be so hard to see your girl like that and so hard not to go tonight. Praying that she's able to come home tomorrow, where she can be spoiled. Sending good thoughts that the Oncologist is able to somehow manage this and buy more time. It does sound like you're both in good hands.

No one looks good in the hospital, especially when they're under sedation.

Take comfort in the knowledge Tesia's getting the care she needs right now. Won't be too long before you can put this behind you and get back to snuggling on the couch.

I totally agree! I ask because it helps with my decisions, but every quality day is a good day and a victory for us And, yes, the bathroom at the hospital has seen me cry plenty too.

Fantastic attitude! This will give you strength.

I hope Tesia is feeling a bit better today when you see her.
