Super Dog continued – Week 3 post-op; 2nd day following chemo3

I am pretty sure my dog should be studied by the medical community.  Today was all about him wanting treats. If he was having any problems he sure did not show it.  I gave him a little bath, we ran around the yard, played  and he is now sound asleep in my bed.  I am hoping we are past the side effects but I never asked if day three can still produce any; we always talked with the vet about the first 2 days.

As an update on Bailey in general, he has slowed down somewhat – he doesn’t run and play as much but I think he is still figuring things out, however he is a happy dog.  Today after his bath he didn’t roll around on the towels – he used to loved to do that and kick them up in the air.  It saddened me a little that he couldn’t but we found other ways to play with the towel and he seemed fine with that.

I hold my breath daily waiting for the other shoe to drop – I know there is going to be a day that it does and that is what makes it so hard.  Sometimes I find myself forgetting that we have this down hill road in front of us but, I know I am lucky right now as all seems uphill right now and Bailey really seems OK.

    I’m glad to hear Bailey had a smooth few days after chemo. Remember that the effects of chemo are cumulative, so you may find him more tired after his future treatments.

    As for the other shoe dropping, yes, that will unfortunately happen one day. But not today. So don’t think about it until you have to. Bailey is doing well now, and that’s all that matters. Love up your boy and take each day as it comes. Sending positive thoughts Bailey’s way!

    Live in these wonderful moments just like Bailey does. And remember, life isn’t measured by the number of breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away. I don’t remember where I saw that, maybe on facebook or something. Meanwhile, I am happy to hear Bailey is doing well after that nasty ol’ chemo.
    Hang in there.
