just wanted to let you know that I did get my stitches out on Monday. It was great. They said my incision looked good and they didn’t need to see me again unless I needed something. So don’t have to go back to that place again.
i had blood work again and they said it showed a drop and that maybe next week I might go to the other vet for my second chemotherapy treatment or it will be the week after. Dad said it will be a quick trip in and back when it happens.
i also got the all clear to take 10 min walks at the park which have been amazing. I had missed smelling so many assbook post (dog Facebook) over the past few weeks it took a while to make my loop. I also get to go into the yard without my leash so long as dad or mom goes outside too. They won’t let me run and chase things but I have some independence back which is nice. I also get to sleep in my chair again so overall I am in a pretty good mood. Like I tell dad, everyday you get to spend with a dog is a good one. And it is always good to be a dog.
here is a photo of me in the car after learning that the cone is done

Ooooh I’ll bet you and your family are sooo thankful today! Look at you fluffy girl, you have a look of pure joy on your face. Congratulations!
So glad to hear things are moving along nicely. And now, on to the next phase! You’ll knock down those chemotherapy treatments without a problem.

Hi Eva and family,
I jut wanted to thank you for the posts. My dog Lucky is getting ready for his amputation suregry next Thursday and we are nervous. It was nice to hear about Eva getting back to the things she loves to do. I would love to hear how you all are doing now that a few more weeks have passed.
things are good. I started my second chemo and have my immunotherapy dates in January and February on the calendar. Dad took me to my physical therapy session. Damn that was fun and hard. I napped hard on Tuesday but can’t wait to go back and practice more of my made balancing skills. Hope you all are welll but most wanted to brag about my bandanna 😀
