I just thought I would let everyone know CA Wrigley is doing great. She is getting around great as a Tripawd. She even went swimming in the river the other day and did fine. She has had 2 rounds of chemo- one Carboplatin and one Doxorubicin. With the Carboplatin she had no side effects at all and with the Doxorubicin she only had mild diarhea- all of her bloodwork continues to come back normal.
She is back on an antiobiotic, because she has developed a blister on the incision. Apparently one of the stitches did not “go away” like it was supposed to, so it is going to “pop” out we are told. So because she is undergoing chemo, they are putting her on an antiobiotic for safe measure.
She continues to amaze everyone that sees her, including me.

Thanks Jerry for getting this in the gallery for me.
You're welcome. I just came to add the photo here, but you beat me too it!
Wrigley has the same great grin as Jerry. And he's missing the same leg. Thanks for sharing the photos. He looks just great in his Ruff Wear harness!

Wrigley, you got the Tripawd thing down! Keep it up my friend, I know you're having a ball!
P.S. We could seriously be related, don't you think?

Go, Wrigley!! You look smashing in your Ruffwear harness , just like Blackjack did! Keep on keepin' on, dawg! You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Thanks Jerry- I do think we could be related- and it would be an honor.
Yes, this tripawd thing is a piece of cake- we watched your videos before so we knew I could do it too. I'm so glad my mom found you and your pawrents- you guys have helped her so much. Thanks to you, she's getting this tripawd thing down too.
Glad to have you watching over us all down here-
