She never ceases to amaze me!!! Ate full dinner last night and slept through the night again, had first bowel movement this am. Ate just a little for breakfast. Went to the vet for checkup and they suggested icing her incision with a bag of frozen peas. At first it startled her when I put it on her but she's in her pen right now with it still on. So far, recovery is better than expected!! Will continue to keep her as quiet as possible and still on heavy meds. All in all....we are so totally blessed!!

Oh, amd if you aren't already doing this, put a wash cloth, or anything, between the peas and her skin.

Hi, just catching up. Bonnie seems amazing. So happy she is doing well, and I am sure she will continue to do so.
Thank you for adopting her, and I agree you are truly blessed, and so is Bonnie!
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!
