The day we knew it was worth it…

Such an emotional rollercoaster, with Tonka’s size and age we struggled with the decision to amputate – I continued to struggle with it even more so when he came home from surgery, had we done the right thing?

Well, despite my Momma instinct telling me this kind of activity is to soon in his recovery – Tonka thinks different …  literally day 12 post surgery


I promise he’s resting now… but I think I have watched that clip 50 times with a smile on my face and a tear in my eye.

We start chemo tomorrow …

Up to Day 7 – what a rollercoaster

I made it onto the lounge!!  1. We’re not meant to get on the lounge – 2. Mum’s not sure how I managed to do it – but I did – 3. Yes I got to stay here all night with Mum.

I love being outside – I swap between the shade and the sun.

That one night where dad got the swag out so Mum could have a break in her real bed.

I so much prefer this stupid thing to that other stupid bucket thing … phwah

Did I mention I love the lounge.

This is Mum’s effort number 332 to stop me scratching these itchy stitches – this one is a weightlifting glove!!  We’ve done explorer socks, vet wrap, cotton cloth and medical tape…  I hope these humans learn soon…
