Another Jessee update. We had xrays and ultra sound scans last Wednesday after 2 chemo treatments and all look GOOD! We are very optimistic these days but still enjoying each and every day with our tripawd diva girl. We’ve had a bit of snow here in Washington over the last couple days but this morning we got the kids out and Jessee loved it. She is doing better with her leg orthodic. She will never wear it all day, as was originally the plan. At 8.5 years of age that is just not her life style. She’s a lounger. She moves between beds and couches during the day and really has nominal outside activity except for her three meals (which are devoured), potty breaks and then the orthodic goes on for the walks.
Jessee continues to do really well with the swim therapy. Last visit she walked into the beach entry pool and swam off into the deep end. After therapy she is so relaxed. Any foot swelling is gone and you can just see how good she feels. So valuable to have a rehabilitation veterinary specialist working with her.
She’s back to being picky about her Ellevet treats, but I just chop them up and put them in her meal at noon and she’s fine. I believe that they are contributing to the reduced swelling in here foot also.
She is due for her next chemotherapy appointment on Tuesday and she will get a shot of anti nausea medication prior. But overall she is doing really really well and we couldn’t be happier. It’s been one day short of two months since she became a life loving tripawd. Happy Valentines day to all the Tripawds out there!
