Tesia

Praying that Tesia is feeling better, but very worried because we didn't hear from you yesterday.

I'm sorry I caused concern. I had an early appointment before work and didn't have a chance to update.

Yesterday and the night before were tough - Tesia hardly ate anything, and was clearly nauseous again. BUT - my vet called me on the way to my appointment and she told me she did find an anti-nausea med that won't conflict with the antibiotic. First though, I decided to try the chicken and rice. I was a little worried as Tesia has never had anything but dog food. But she ate a WHOLE PLATE last night!! About 1/3 cup of cooked rice and about 1/4 of a chicken breast. I was so happy! She slept through the night, and started to feel nauseous only just before we got up this morning (she starts smacking her lips and lying down and getting up). I took her out, and then she was very interested as I heated up some more chicken and rice. She ate the whole plate again and I could tell she wanted more. I gave her her meds, and I'm going to see if she wants another small meal before I go to work later this morning. I am so relieved she ate. She had far more energy when we went out this morning.

On the cancer test front - no news. I left a message for the surgeon yesterday. I found out he was off Mon-Tues, so I know I'll hear from him today. I really do think more and more that it is soft tissue sarcoma, from what I am reading. It all fits - right up to the high incidence of spread to the lungs. When we were at the vet Monday to have her back and side stitches out, we mapped all the new bumps that have sprung up just in the past week. So many. And two or three are worrying - they feel exactly like the spindle cell tumour we had removed from her back. Once the infection is fully cleared up (one more week on antibiotics) I'll look into having them removed. It will depend what the cancer is and what the treatment is. It just seems to be coming so fast now.

So glad to hear that Tesia was able to eat the chicken and rice. It's not that much extra work to prepare. You can cook enough for a couple of days, keep it in the refrigerator and take the chill off it in the microwave before feeding Tesia. Saying a prayer for both of you.
