Thank you for your support!Hi Everypawdy!  Life has been good this week… Holly’s bloodwork was better than last week (her counts went from 540 to over 5000!).  She was scheduled to get her last chemo yesterday, but her veins wouldn’t cooperate because she was dehydrated.  It’s been hot here in […]

Thank you for your support!Hi Everypawdy!  Guess what?  I have a new little sister!  And I’ll tell you, she’s pretty cute even if I’m not letting my mom know that I think that.  She’s only somewhat annoying to me – like when she tries to play with the tags on […]

My mom has been pathetic about posting the last few weeks, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and do my own post.  I’ve been so busy that it’s hard to know where to begin!  First, we went on a long, long ride and I ended up at a dog park with […]

Yesterday Holly had her 4th chemo treatment.  All went well, and so far she’s been in fine spirits.  While she was at the vet, they did x-rays of her chest, and the x-rays are clear!  I can’t even express the relief – I wasn’t sure I wanted them to do the x-ray, and they hadn’t […]

Holly’s back to her old self again!  We had some snow on Saturday – the peeps in the house woke up and said “yuck – more snow”.  Holly woke up and said “cool! more snow!”.  She went outside and made tons of snow angels in the yard – rolled all over the place. It was […]

Another day

Holly’s appetite’s been off since her 3rd round of chemo, but not as bad as after the 2nd round.  She had her follow up bloodwork done yesterday and today her results came back – wbc was 2800.  The vet said that’s a dip, but not terrible.  She wouldn’t eat breakfast today and threw up this […]

A rainy day in Chicago…

Holly continues to let me know that she thinks she’s doing awesome.  That puts a big smile on my face… sometimes I have to remind myself that she doesn’t care that her white blood cell counts are low, or whatever!  Thanks for all the encouragement after my last post… it helps to have all of […]
