Shari, thanks for celebrating the joy and for understanding all the dynamics that one little photo encompasses!

Glad that sweet Evelyn got to celebrate with us with a cookie! Everyday I say, OK Happy Hannah, we’re gonna start your diet “tomorrow”. And everyday she just laughs at theaabsurdity of the concept!!

Oh yeah,……they’ll be more photos comin now! Poor Jerry…no good deed goes unpunished!! More photos…….maybe even a video ..coming your way!

When we celebrate, we celebrate Dakota’s infinite grace.

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Wahoo!  Good to finally meet you, Happy Hannah!  You are so darn cute and loving your bowl….and milking that pose for all it’s worth to your mom.  Keep it up, lady!  You rock those test results!

I suppose if your vet says she’s OK for chemo to continue with low platelet levels, then it’s gotta be OK, right?  Is she part of a larger practice – perhaps ask another vet for confirmation?  I know they look at white blood cells and when that is too low, chemo is withheld.

~ Katy

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!

Katy and Jackson! It’s always so great hearing from all our special friends sharing this journey!!

Yeah, she’s milking t…..and has me full trained to respond with food!

I’d talk with my regular vet again and he said he wouldn’t doubt that the plat left count was an error!! And that’s our story and we are definitely sticking with that one:-) :-) :-) :-) :-) !,,, Said something like sometimes blood could clot or something before actual lab. test ad after looking at everything again, e really thinks that’s the case. Don’t me to watch for sudden. Cruising and a few other things just in case….of let her bump into things or fall, etc.

SO WE AIN’T WORRIED ‘BOUY O STINKIN’ PLATELET!!

‘Bout time for a Jackson update?

Hannah,
Yeah for the pic and even bigger yeah for all the heart and determination you and your momma have that have! It Allowed you to flourish as a Tripawd. Sally, if we were all tough on you in the beginning it was out of love for you and Hannah. even though we didn’t know you, we knew somehow that If you kept coming back for more you had it in you and were a fighter. And we were all right. You and Hannah ARE warriors. I was elated to finally see her cute mug. I hope you share many more pics with us and that we are able to celebrate many more milestones with you both. I think of you often and wish you all the best.

NINE WEEKS AFTER LEG AMPUTATION AND CERTAIN I MADE A GREAT DECISION for my Happy Hannah!!!:-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

All blood work checked out fine yesterday s proceeded with third chemo and all is well!!(knocking on wood of course)

No more blood work in between ow and she only has to do one more treatment!! Haven’t spoken about any other treatment her but it seems four carboplatin is standard for effectiveness

Every single day is such a treasure, such a gift, such blissful joy and I am so grateful to everyone on this site for walking by our side, and continuing to do so!! I hope in some small way to be here for you as you have for us! We could t have gotten this far without you!

Okay, when I get some tonight Happy Hannah and I will be dancing to a little “GLORY DAYS’ (in our heads of course) and I’m in visioning Happy Hannah up on stage with Bruce the Boss!! Hope she let’s me go backstage with her!!:-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

We celebrate on behalf of all gripawd hero on this journey and all spirit tripawds running free!

Love, love, love to all, Sally and Happy Hannah
