First Chemo Friday6

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

This past Friday was Abby’s first chemo treatment.   I was expecting to leave her with the oncologist  for most of the day but it literally took 5 minutes.  We walked in, they drew up her shot, gave it to her and then charged me an astronomical amount of money :-/  I was expecting to have a tired, sick puppy on my hands within 24 hours but we’re almost to 48 and she’s still the same old Abby.  Much to my relief she’s eating normally and doesn’t seem to be feeling badly at all.

Other than chemo we’ve pretty much gotten back to our normal routine.  Abby and her new little sister Kaya are getting along very well.  Since Kaya has learned that Abby is the alpha things have been going smoothly. 

Our new addition, Kaya

Its a pretty typical Sunday with both the pups squirrel watching on the front porch while I’m working on a few little things for our fundraiser and starting to think about what to do for Abby’s 6th birthday,(St.Patty’s Day), which a few weeks ago I wasn’t sure she was going to see.  Its a great feeling to see her doing so well and such a relief to feel confident that she’ll be here for her birthday bash.   Looking forward to three weeks with no vet visits (crossing our fingers and paws) and getting back to our normal routine.

    Yay Abby! We’re so glad to hear that you took your first chemo in stride and are doing well! Holly thinks you should get double or triple treats until your birthday to celebrate. For that fact, she’s lobbying for that here in your honor!

    Great that Abby the Labby continues to do well. It’s pawesome that you get to celebrate her birthday! Mackenzie’s birthday is in March too and I’m so happy that I get to celebrate it with her – wasn’t sure I’d see the day either. Kaya looks like such a sweet sister for Abby. Have a pawesome birthday celebration!
