Tommy:Woofs everyone! You must be wondering why on earth I have a "thankful" post, given the news that I shared with you last week. Well, you know what? There is always something to be thankful for or about.
Almost six days have passed since that fateful trip to the vet and the ghastly diagnosis of hemangiosarcoma of the spleen. Since that time, the only thing I have been taking is cortisone, which has been making me very thirsty and wanting to pee all the time. I was taking 30mg a day but yesterday, following consultation with Dr. C, the dosage was reduced to 20mg. During these six days, I have been cheerful, energetic, happy to go out and play with my ball when the weather has permitted it, and showing a hearty appetite for my meals and treats. #1 keeps asking herself how I could possibly be that sick. If I continue as I have been in the coming days, she is seriously considering taking me to a referral clinic (the same one that Tama went to when she had her cough issues) where they have more high-end imaging equipment, just to make sure.
In the meantime, I am thankful for every day, for the yummy meals that #1 is making me, and, most of all, for the huge outpouring of love from our friends all over the world. You are the BEST!
#1 really loves this photo. She says it is like a painting!
Chasing my ball:
For Christmas, I got a prosciutto bone!
#1 says the best thing about this photo is that it shows gums of a healthy colour!
Me on Christmas day, with my new snake toy from Miss Claire at The Swiss Cats! Thank you, Miss Claire, Zorro and Pixie!
There was a hard frost yesterday morning, but that did not stop me from wanting to play!
And do you remember Miss Sophie Kitten? She has been getting closer and closer to me each time I visit!
Who knows, Dear Friends? Maybe I will go out in a blaze of glory, or maybe I will stick around a little longer after all...
