Chemo3

Well the dreaded call came – they want to start chemotherapy on Bailey right away.  The cancer is aggressive, although not found anywhere in his body other than in the amputated leg.  They tell me if it is there it is somewhere….From the research I have done dogs handle chemo fairly well, although, as with […]

Two Weeks5

It amazes me that two weeks have gone by and life is almost back to normal.  Bailey is using the doggie doors, chasing the mailman around the yard, barking at anything he hears or sees (sight and hearing is diminished – he is after all 17, specifically 17 years, 9 months).  At least it is […]

Day Ten4

Bailey is doing great.  Back to his old self charging out of the house as if he was a 100 lb dog that will defend us from all intruders.  He still forgets his limitations, but is managing well. I think he has been licking his incision today as it is a tiny red and not […]

Day Nine – Stitches1

I noticed early today one of Bailey’s stitches came out – as the day progressed a second came out and it looked a little red.  He had not been chewing or licking them ( a perfect patient).  I thought there might be a little odor too so I called the vet who did the surgery […]

Day Eight – A Car Ride1

Another great day for Bailey.  Both my husband and I had to work today at the same time so I took Bailey to work with me.  My daughter joined us at the office so she could “dog sit”.  I was worried about the car ride.  Bailey is a total window dog – loves to have […]

Day Seven – Week one over6

It is hard to believe that it has been a whole week since this began.  Bailey is doing great.  He is even navigating the doggie door.  He did fall down today on the tile when he was moving to fast around a turn – he was fine, I was more freaked out.  I have tried […]

Day Six – good day for Bailey but not for mom5

Bailey was taken off the Rimadyl today and his pain meds were reduced because he has done so well.  He is able to get up on his own, use the “restroom” on his own and he even made it through the doggie door by himself before we could tell him “NO”. He has true spirit […]

Day Five – 4/1/124

Bailey went out to the front yard today and in true Bailey form started barking and moving quickly to defend the property (there was no-one there but that is his usual form).  I was able to keep up with him but he is ready to go once he is off his bed.  He is still […]

Day Four – 3/31/120

Bailey’s spirit is amazing.  He inspires me.  He is, of course, still a little off balance but he has figured out how to urinate already; #2 is posing to be a lot harder.  He is still trying to figure that out but has gone twice already.  I think we are getting the same thrill when […]

Day Three – 3/30/120

Bailey woke me up around 6:30 AM to go outside for his morning relief.  The hospital had sent home a sling they made for us to use to support Bailey.  It seemed like it was pushing to hard on his belly so I took it apart and made a new one with an old housecoat. […]
