Here is a summary of everything that has been going on with Lucky over the past few months (since out last check-in with Tripawds!).  Lucky was on a chemo trial when his follow up chest x-rays were done in May.  Unfortunately they showed multiple spots of lung mets and he had to be pulled from […]

2 month ampuversary!

April 18th, 2011 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

Well – 2 months plus 2 days! It’s hard to believe it’s only been 2 months since Lucky’s surgery. He is doing absolutely great! He had his third dose of Carboplatin last week – no side effects for any of the doses. His hair is almost all grown in, and he is happily hopping and […]

Day 18 – A wonderful weekend!

Day 16 – 48 hours post chemo – It’s all good!

March 5th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

A big sigh of relief that the first 48 hours post Carboplatin went smoothly – great appetite, no GI problems!  Still resting a lot and loves to lie in the garden/woodchips!!! (Must be that connection with nature that many others have described). Seeing more of Lucky’s “old” personality every day!  Nice to know from others […]

Not exactly like the 12 days of Christmas!

March 1st, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Lucky’s slowly but surely making his way closer to the 2 week mark!  It’s nice to see hair starting to grow back – hopefully it won’t get in the way too much when the stitches are removed in 2 days.  Gabapentin is still keeping him pain free which is fantastic!  He seems to be getting […]

Day 10 status update

February 27th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Not a whimper of pain since starting on the Gabapentin 300mg the evening of day 7! (Velveeta worked like a charm for the second evening in a row – what a relief!) One thing we just thought about today – it sounds like some dogs have experienced leaking and oozing from their incision sites.  Lucky’s […]
