Sooo happy to see Tesia is coming home in a little bit. She will be so glad to be back where she belongs.

What wonderful people at the clinic she was treated at; I am sure they will appreciate your card and gift.

Scritches to sweet Tesia.

Amazing news. I'm so happy for you. And even though it's not Thanksgiving in Canada, it's definitely something amazing to be thankful for.

Thank you all - and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US. I have a lot of family in the States, so it feels like my holiday, too. So thank you for the wishes, too.

And yes, THANKFULLY, she is home!! She walked in and went straight for the bed, and was sleeping within two minutes. I think she'll sleep for two days straight.

The surgeon found out today that the infection she has is a somewhat rare one - multi-resistent. So she actually got put in isolation for her last day there. She is not by any means the only dog they've ever seen with it - it's less rare when you live in a big city - but they try to limit exposure because it is resistent to so many antibiotics. Anyway, she is on the right antibiotic now, plus Tramadol and she will go back on Deramaxx once she "firms up" a bit. I think the stress and meds have taken a bit of a toll on her poor system.

Very restricted movement for 2 weeks. Just out to go to the bathroom. She was ready to leap up onto my bed, but I lifted her on. When she wakes up and I take her down, I plan to pull my mattress onto the floor. I hope there is enough room in my bedroom to do that. I may need to get creative. I have a split level house, so unfortunately, she does need to do a few stairs. But since she has a cone - which she has become an absolute pro about, I must say - she has to walk up them slowly anyway, with me holding it out of the way.

I'll try to get a photo later. Right now, I want her to rest. She let out a big sigh after she had been up on the bed for a minute or two - I think she was thinking, "oh, thank goodness it's QUIET."

I'm so happy she is home. But man, those cones make it hard to just plant a kiss on her as I walk by.

So happy to see that Tee is able to come home today. I am not sure who is happier, you or Tee. I am glad it worked out so well at VEC. A batch of homemade would probably be greatly appreciated, especially by the overnight staff at 2 am. I would suggest sharing your thanksgiving dinner with them, but seeing as it was Thanksgiving 6 weeks ago in Canada, you might give them food poisoning. There is also a charity associated with VEC that you might be interested in donating to on Tesia's behalf:
Companion Animal Wellness Foundation 2011. Enjoy your furbaby, and praying that she is home with you for a long time.

Welcome Home Tesia

We are so glad your beautiful girl is home, I am sure that just being back where she belongs will bring here on in leaps and bounds! Just take each day as it comes, although our Barnaby was not away from us as long as Tesia it is always a hard and anxious time that I think only golden owners can really understand. It is also so lovely to know she has such a lovely dog mother to take care of her. Sending you our best wishes across the miles. Hugs to all

Wonderful news! This makes my Thanksgiving!


There is plenty of time to think about what lies ahead, but it's best to take it as it comes - one day at a time. For sure that's out Tesia will take it, and she has her priorities straight - being at home and sharing cuddles with her mom. I suspect that you will soon be among the GRF members who prepare gourmet meals for Goldens, if you aren't already.

Hugs, prayers, and pleasant dreams to you and Tee.

Lucy

I am so happy she is home and being loved and spoiled by her amazing mommy. I hope she heals quickly and her prognosis is positive. Big hugs to you both!
