Healing Weekend

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. I'm feeling a lot better. We are still keeping our fingers crossed until my next blood work this week. I'm not back to my regular kibble or routine yet, but I'm coming along well. Slow and steady, says Mom.

Remember: Aleve--naproxen--is TOXIC to doggies. Even one pill can land a doggy my size in pet ER and on an IV for days. I can tell you firsthand that it is scary. If you ingest a pill, do not wait for symptoms. Seek medical help immediately.

Thank you for all your wonderful thoughts, comments, and prayers. I had a healing weekend and soaked up all of your loving. I participated in some healing activities that I wanted to share:

I received encouragement from my fur brother Truffle and my mom's God-son.

I took a lot of naps between taking my medicines. Most of my naps were in Mom's arms. Here I am snuggled up in my big chair.

Special vet Dr. Ward suggested sun therapy was a good idea. I even sat outside in the sun, too. I believe in sunbeams.

After nursing encouragement and all your wonderful comments and prayers and good thoughts, I even felt well enough to take a few brief walks with Truffle!

I love Mom's God-son. He has such a positive and beautiful heart; he made us all feel better. 

More updates and details soon. Until then, keep on wagging.

  18. Hi Tootsie
    I wanted to let you know that I am continuing to send you all the healing thoughts- and doggy prayers that I can! The sky is filled with bubbles- and inside those- are all the healing wishes.

  19. Thanks for the heads up. There are so many things that doggies, especially small doggies, will get terribly ill from. It's hard to keep up. Naproxin is in other medicines besides Aleve isn't it?
