The Week After Surgery

Do I bounce back or what? Less than a week later, it’s back to the routine, hanging out in the office and sleeping all day. Here I am during my lunch break, playing in the yard a little. Just a little though. The doc says that I’m only supposed to go for short walks, but … Read more

Home Again. Home Again.

Jerry at HomeIt may not look so much like it but I am really glad to be home, even if there are no turkey leftovers this year. I can tell Jim and Rene are happy that we’re all finally home too!

They took more pictures of me but you’ll have to check out the Photo Album to see the gory ones. Rene thinks they’re gross, and she wouldn’t even let Jim get a copy of the CT scan from Dr Stipnik … she said he was kind enough to go in to the hospital on Thanksgiving day to discharge me so I could come home.

The scar may look bad but I sure like it. You should’ve seen the mass they took out with my leg. It was huge!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m certainly giviving thanks today. There my be no turkey for me and Jim this year, but I’m going home! I woke up this morning and was still in the hospital, so I got up on my own right away and waited for the doctor. I told him to take me outside where I showed … Read more

The Big Day (Down the Rabbit Hole)

I’m dreaming of chasing rabbits. They’ve got me doped up real good, but I don’t like the idea of being scanned by any cat! The CT scan I just had, however, showed that the mass in my shoulder is much larger than expected. No wonder I’ve been in so much pain. And the doctor believes … Read more

In for Surgery

Pre-Op JerryWow, just when I thought I’d get to stay home and chow down on Turkey Day leftovers with Jim, I had to get in the truck for another 6 hour drive to see my doc at UC Davis. That’s two trips in less than a week!

From what I’m understanding, Rene and Jim talked with the doc yesterday, and decided that I needed an operation right away to remove this terrible pain in my shoulder. My pain will be gone, but I will have one less leg to stand on. Oh well, I guess that’s why nature gave us 4, just in case one goes bad!

We got into town at 1 am this morning. At the hospital today, I got to hang out and play with some other cool dogs and vet students, before all the serious stuff happens.

Today, the students will get me ready for my big operation tomorrow. I have to spend the night, but Jim and Rene’s friend Theresa who works with the docs, said she’ll give me lots of kisses all day.

Then, at 10 am tomorrow, I’ll get some good drugs and take a nap, while the docs do a “CT Scan” on me, so they can find out where they need to remove the bones that are making me hurt.

My Diagnosis

I just heard Rene and Jim on the phone with that doctor from Davis. For a vet, I must admit he’s pretty cool … not too clinical but not too warm and fuzzy either. He didn’t sugar coat the news he had for them. So what if I have Osteosarcoma of the upper scapula? They … Read more

Ouch.

I’ve got stitches in my shoulder from where the very nice doctors and students at UC Davis Vet Medical Center took a biopsy from my scapula bone. Jim and Rene took me there when none of the local vets could figure out why I’ve been limping so badly. They made me go to sleep for … Read more
