That is too cute! Clearly, we are disturbing her in some way. . .
Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016. Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016. Lung mets August 25, 2016. Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016. Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.
Wherever they are, they are together.

You guys are soooo funny. She's being cat...like, cleaning her face. She's happy to have her stitches out, so am I. It was good to be able to leave her, and not fret myself into a frenzy about her stitches. I had only done that in very short spurts before, like a few minutes taking the garbage out, or whatever.
I didn't get a chance to ask the Doc about the follow up screening, an intern took the stitches out. They're very busy, and I didn't want to pester them. I'm very lucky to have them as a vet, for Darla to be their patient. They basically have a waiting list to become their client, I had to wait 9 months for them to have them first see her. This was 5 years ago, it was just a meet and greet appointment, but then I was their client. They are highly coveted business, extremely caring and reasonably priced, a 2nd generation owner. From the prices they charge, you can tell it's not about the money, it's all about the love of caring for the animals. It's very refreshing in this age!
I'll try and get some more pics up, it's a sunny day here. After our naps (LOL), we'll be heading out for some fresh air!

Day 36, post amp update.
Darla graduated to shirtless for the 1st night, I wouldn't say her licking days are over, but I think the intensity has subsided. I'm not sure that this is forever, I'll probable 'shirt' her when I leave her alone, for a while yet.
Still okay, good, and better days. It was said here, that it's a roller-coaster ride, that's a mouthful. When our beloved family members have an outstanding day, or even a moment, you expect them all to be that way. But it's just not so, but I don't think that's any different than any other recovery. Or day, or dog, cat or person, for that matter.
In these past day since the amp, I've had very few moments of, "Oh goodness, what did I do to her", but I knew going in this was going to question my character. I knew Darla would have enough heart, I don't think she's the exception, for the stories I read, our animals are incredibly resilient. And I'm grateful for that, or my sweet girl would be gone to the gardens in the sky. Thank the Lord, I've got some extra time with her, however long it is. Until our next visit.....
