Wednesday Weekly Wrap up


I'm still here.  Mom wasn't sure there for a little while, but I'm holding my own.  The liver soup that Mom made is helping - a little.  At least I'm eating.

According to the Vet, I have a cyst or tumor on my liver.  Mom and Dad and I had a big discussion on what we were going to do to make me better.  Right now, we're not considering surgery.  So we're just going to ride this out as long as I can for now and see where it leads us.

I've lost about 10lbs and it shows.  I'm not eating so much, but I'm still a pretty happy guy.  I did have a few rough days but I think part of that was one of the pills they have me on which makes me want to throw up.  Mom and Dad stopped giving me that one after I threw up on their bed....again

So all in all, it's been a bit of a rough time.  Mom made me liver this week, some liver soup, some red rice and I've gotten OODLES of cuddles and ear scratches.  Part of that is the rain and thunder storms we've gotten this week too though.

We're not sure how long I have before crossing the Bridge, but it'll probably happen sooner rather than later and that makes Mom very sad and sometimes she can't help but cry.  I can't say I'm too happy about that either. I'm not near ready to go yet though.  I still have a job to do looking after my family and I'll also be doing some sleeping, blog reading, Facebooking, and mooching as many cuddles from my family as I can.

A big thank you to Mango Momma, River The Beagle's Mom, and The Poupounette's #1 for their advice to Mom.  It's nice to have friends like you.

Sniff ya later!

Before you go, my mom wants to say how much she will miss you and your wonderful smoochy nose. We can only pray that you will last a good long time. Whenever you cross the Bridge and get to play with our beagles it will be too soon, way too soon.

If there's anything we can do let us know. Sometimes even money won't make much difference but love and caring make all the difference. We will be thinking of you from now until forever.

Mango sent me over. So sorry to hear you've been sick. We'll be thinking about you and sending healing lab energy your way.

My mom says she really feels for your mom and knows what your mom is going through and knows it is very difficult. She says she thinks it's much harder on the moms and dads than it is on the pups.

Hope you are able to enjoy every day!

Bolo, our Morgan has liver disease too and the doctor says it's getting worse. Mom started her on something called Denamarin and she's feeling lots better. We don't know if it's actually helping her liver, we'll find out next month, but she sure is happier and more active. If you want to know more drop us an email.
