Daytime, Bedtime Routines Help Make Life Normal

It’s a good start to the day when Jake only wants lap time and belly rubs without caring about breakfast. Hope, on the other hand, could not get me into the kitchen fast enough.

Hope did not get her chemotherapy Monday; her white count was too low. However, the oncology vet said the lymph nodes she could feel were smaller—smaller than last week when they had shrank from the beginning.

The veterinarian did take her off restricted activity. She said to let Hope determine how active she wants to be. Today we walked all the furkids, and Hope went a little less than 100 yards. We didn’t want to tire her. She was happy and did fine.

We will check again to see if Hope can get chemo Thursday. Each time before chemo a complete blood count is checked. Let’s hope her white count will be up.

Each night Jake cares for Hope. The video is from one night last week. The black rump you see near Hope’s face is Windy, who was asleep. Please overlook Hope’s hair. The vet technicians shaved her skirt so they could conduct an ultrasound.


About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.

    Glad that Jake is helping take care of Hope. Ava just watched the video with me. It was funny. She all of a sudden looked up and saw doggies on the computer screen and was intent watching it.
