This week marks a year since our boy became a Tripawd. He has been doing great. No visible signs of anything being wrong except one very small lump, like a skin tag, by his shoulder. It doesn’t seem to bother Rusty if I touch it when I pet him. No other signs. He plays and cuddles more than ever.
Follow up appt today, Saturday 9/22, with Dr Scott. Praying all is well as I start my day with my little guy curled up against me in bed. 💕. He has overcome so much already!
Rusty "The Bunnyman" adopted us in 2014. Aug/Sept 2017, back left leg amputated (HSA cancer). He remained cancer free over 900 days. Cancer returned as of emergency visit on day 931. 15 days later, he gained his wings 04/18/2020 due to congestive heart failure. He will always watch over his fellow tripawds and their hoomins with Head Scritches and Sand Paper Kisses.
