So glad to see that everything went well with Tesia's surgery, that she has a good appetite, and is comfortable. There is no place like home !

Wishing you both a great Christmas. Love, hugs, and ear scritches all around.

Tonight, this was the first place that I came to read about your Tesia. I wish you had a video of her rooing! Those special sounds that are so individual, are things that are treasure when we are left behind. I SO wish that I had recordings of Golda's wookie monster voice, Di's low sweet growl and Max's old man bark when he was happy. So very glad that she's on the road to mending and back home where she belongs!

I am so glad that the surgery went well and that Tesia is home where she belongs. Yay!

Thank you for caring so much about Tesia. I wish I had video of that rooing, too. It's been so meaningful, simply because she is not a rooer. But she rooed when I visited her everyday when she was in the hospital - and she rooed when she saw me the other night, there to pick her up after her fourth surgery. She probably had worried she would be staying there alone again.

She also has a little sound she makes - I bet many of your Goldens make it - if she is lying on my bed and I go in and kiss her face and talk softly into her ear, she almost murmurs back. I love it.

Happy Homecoming!!
Tee is doing much better on the Tramadol this time. I guess it proves it was the antibiotic that was making her sick, not the Tramadol. She is getting 75mg, every 12 hours. And she is eating well - no nausea. She still takes a longer time than pre-illness to eat a bowl of food, but with the addition of the wet A/D food, she is at least now eating the whole thing in one sitting. I upped the kibble to 1-1/4 cup this morning, plus the large spoon of wet food. The A/D food is also a power pack of calories and nutrients, specifically for a pet recovering from illness or surgery. We'll continue on with that, plus she is getting lots of healthy cookies. I used to be so careful about not giving too many extras - now, if she just looks at me, she can have a cookie! She clearly is needing more - her body is healing and she was already down several pounds before this latest surgery - probably still only about 52 pounds.

Love your latest post about Tesia's improved appetite. So cute how she gives you "the look" when she wants a treat.

Keep up the great work !!!

Thank you so much. It is much harder this year, though I am just starting to feel a little more hopeful and happy than I have in the past six weeks. She is really having a good post-op recovery this time - what a difference it makes to have her eating, not in the cone, and bright and engaged. I even briefly considered putting up a few lights for the next few days. There are no Christmas decorations up in my house at all because I just had no spirit. But I feel things lifting a bit. I'm sad I won't be with any family, but I'll be with Tee. This year, that is most important.

I hope you and Tesia get to spend lots of quality time together over the holidays and I'm glad to hear she's feeling better after her surgery.
