I am happy to read her procedures went well and that hopefully she will be coming home soon! She is beautiful! Who couldn't love a face like that?

Don't let the time frame the vets give you put you down. Like you said, it is not always right. My Penny was given about eight months, and she has lived almost three in a half years now. I think the most important medicine is to live each day to it's fullest. Don't worry about yesterday, or tomorrow, just worry about today, and what you and Tesia can do today to have fun together.

My positive thoughts continue to flow your way.

We got home and she walked straight upstairs and into the tub. I didn't even have a chance to put down the rubber mat or run the water to warm it up.
LOL!!!!!!! Good girl, Tesia. Oh, that's just precious. And good that you're thinking about fun stuff. The yucky period you're going through now will pass and you'll be back at having a ball.

Beautiful sweet Tesia, loved the pictures of her. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. I hope she's back home with you soon so you can begin to concentrate on making some wonderful memories together.

So glad your sweet girl is home! Enjoy and cherish each day, try not to let the thoughts of "time remaining" spoil the special moments you have together. My Beau taught me it was all about the moment when his days were limited and it is something that helped me to have joyful memories of the smallest of moments.
Thinking of you and your special girl.

Sadly, she's not home yet. The bathtub story was from another day.

She's not coming home today either. The intern called this morning, and while she is doing great, they are changing the drain catch (it's a little glass vial) every two hours. I said, "I can do that!" but it's too dangerous to send her home with it because there is a needle, and it's glass.

I did go to visit her after work last night. It was busy, so I didn't want to stay long and disrupt their work. But I think I got the greatest greeting of our 12 years together. She was rooing SO loudly, and for so long. She was going bananas, which is not such a great thing when you have an IV and a drain in, but I was so touched. She is not normally a rooer - I trained very low key comings and goings when she was a puppy - but she was SO happy. Poor love. I hope she didn't think I had forgotten her. I won't get to see her til after work again tonight.

Fingers crossed tomorrow is the homecoming. I just can't express what it's like to come here in the morning to find so many messages of support. It means so much. Thank you.

That is SO great. Wow. That makes me feel so much better. And goves me great inspiration to be positive about eventual treatment. We are still waiting for the final stain results to confirm the kind of cancer. It's a tough wait. I just want to start treating whatever it is.
