I did super well with my new chemo last week and figured I was over due for an update on the bloggie!
My new chemo is given to me via IV instead of a pill so I had to stay at the Doctor Liz's office for twice as long! The only good part about the IV is that Jennifer, Dr. Liz's vet tech, sat with me and loved on me while I had my IV in and I got a cute pink bandage to go home with!
Isn't my hot pink bandage cute????
Dr. Liz was happy to see how peppy I was and was super glad to hear that my appetite was back.
Once Momma and I got home from crossing Lake Pottytrain she took my bandage off and was surprised to see that I had a big piece of fur shaved off of my leg for my IV!
Look at my poor shaved leggie!
I was super sleepy after chemo. Momma said that Dr. Liz put Benadryl in my IV cause sometimes doggies have funny reactions to the chemo and the Benadryl helps prevent those funny reactions.
Since Wednesday I've been doing super! Momma says I have a really good appetite again! I even woke Momma up early today because I was ready for my breakfast an hour earlier than normal.
Momma noticed a few weeks ago I was growing this funny bump in the corner of my left eye so Dr. Liz took a look at it, then took some pictures and pee-mailed them to a doggie eye doctor she works with lots. The eye doctor thinks the funny bump is just part of my cancer. So last week Dr. Liz told Momma to do eye drops FOUR times a day!!!!!!!! But I get some special treats, that Droopy isn't allowed to have! HA! The eye drops are ok. Sometimes I let momma put the drops in real quick and sometimes I fight momma and won't let her come near me with the drops!
Look! My special treats even have a paw print on them!
Lots of slobber,
Callie (and Droopy too)
Callie has had a complete turn around! She is ravenous most day! I'd much rather a puppy that is eating me out of house and home versus one that refuses to eat. She wants nothing to do with the eye drops most days. Trying to give the drops as quick as possible and give her a treat as quickly as possible after, which is what we did with Droopy, but Callie just isn't a fan. Her "special treats" are a probiotic that are intended to help the bacteria in Callie's stomach and bowel so she doesn't have so many bathroom issues. The bathroom issues have thankfully settled down!
