Yoshi amazes me each day! He’s getting around like he’s been on 3 legs his whole life. We still have a long road ahead of us. Started to spit his pills out. Stinker!!! Enjoying each day and moments with an open heart. Not only with Yoshi, but with all my loved ones. Such a parent, cause I’m hoping he poops soon!!! Been adding organic pumpkin to his diet since yesterday. Swelling and bruising has gone down a lot since we’ve been warming the area. Deep breaths and lots of hugs 🙂

One day at a time…

Yoshi is getting around fairly well. He is trying to get up on the couch and bed. That’s a no-no for now. It’s extremely hard to see him drugged and sluggish. When he does get a burst of energy, we have to keep him calm so he doesn’t hurt himself. He yelped two times yesterday trying to get comfortable on his bed. So scary!!! Hasn’t had a bowel movement in 5 days and I’m waiting for the Dr. to call me back. Hopping around like he’s done this all his life!!! Loves his sisters and gets so excited to lay on them. Getting there one day at a time.

First night…

July 7, 2017

Surgeon and staff went over all of the pain management plan and the list of questions we had for them. We are so thankful for a wonderful team we have taking care of Yoshi. Surgeon said he was doing a lot better then she thought. Biopsy will be in 10-14 days from now, 2 weeks bed rest, and then chemo. Yoshi is trying to maneuver his way around with a cone on and three legs. We are assisting him with a sling and collar/leash. Very awkward and we might try putting a T-shirt around his back so he doesn’t have to wear the collar all the time. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Ate for us but hasn’t drank any water since yesterday. Worried about dehydration and everything else! We did not get any restful sleep, since every time he moved we got up to check on him. We assumed the first night would be tough. Yoshi likes to take late night strolls and he’s figuring out how to go to the bathroom. So happy he is home and wagging his tail. One day at a time.

Surgery went great and Yoshi is recovering. All his vitals were where they needed to be and the surgeon did not see the tumor! We can breath just a bit easier. Onto the next step and ready to tackle it. We can’t wait to get him home where he belongs!!!

Big day

July 4, 2017

Surgery tomorrow and feeling very nervous, but ready to get the tumor out. Doing a lot of research and figuring out the best plan of action for our Yoshi. Lots of questions for the oncologist. It’s very overwhelming, but we are trying to be optimistic. We are so grateful to have this forum to be able to get information and support during this time in our lives. This community has helped us tremendously in easing our worries and has given us a positive direction. Thank you!!!
