My doctor said I did GREAT today.  Was talking all this mumbo-jumbo with my mom about “renal function, liver enzymes, granulocytes, heart rate, lungs” and a bunch of blah blah blah…. also said that my “WBC was 6”, which I guess is good because Mom seemed happy about all that.  I am pretty tired because they gave me something that would make me an “Ace”???  Hmm, thought I already was, but…. don’t feel like an “ace” right now, I feel like I drank a little too much beer (like I would know).  As you can tell, just holding my head up is quite the task and I cant seem to walk a straight line.  Heck, that’s already tough on 3 legs, come on folks!  Tonight is gonna be a hedgehog cuddlin’, relaxin’ with Mom & Dad kind of evening.  Those silly people have no idea, I got this cancer thing whipped and this chemo stuff is nothing for a strapping, strong muscled up dude like myself.  Cancer can kiss my bodacious ole gluteus maximus!

Sarge was dropped off at around 8:30 am today.  The vet called around noon and said I could come get him at 1:30.  Dr. Hintz said he did wonderful. and that he was very pleased with how his back leg is now doing.  I could hear Sarge barking when I got there and I know that bark, he had to go potty!    As soon as they brought him out to me, he was pulling (I actually LOVE to say my dog was PULLING now!!!!)  for the door.  He ran to the yard in front of the clinic and peed for what seemed to be an eternity!  I guess the 2 IV bags of fluids were working his kidneys!   The Dr. said he did wonderful and was a fantastic patient.  He told me I was “doing the right thing because Sarge still so full of life!”  What a wonderful thing to hear from a professional.  Sometimes I get caught up in emotion and, at times,  have doubted my choices.  To hear him tell me that meant SO much!  He told me to expect few to no symptoms for 3 days them look mostly for diarrhea and anorexia.  He advised Imodium AD IF he had more than 1 episode and to call if it was happening more than 3-5 times a day.  I also have my 100% pure pumpkin and chicken broth handy, thanks to Tripawds suggestions!!  Thanks for your advice!.

I have to work a 12 hour shift Friday so granny and paw paw will be staying with Sarge in case any symptoms develop.

 This was a good day on our osteosarcoma roller coaster.  We have an inside “high five” phrase at out work and we call it delta cookies….. today earned major DELTA COOKIES!  

So proud of you Sarge!
