19 Sunny Days

The last few months we’ve weathered the storm it seems, but Mya’s smiley face brings the sunshine. 19 days today and she got the staples out last Thursday (day16) at the oncology appointment. They shaved a bit near the incision and cleaned the area, overall it was healing well. Still a little raised in the spot she tagged that time with her rear leg, but it has receded a lot. The hair is growing back pretty fast now, hope it stays that way. We are scheduled now for wed the 24th to start Carboplatin Chemotherapy. We got the results back from post op biopsy and it is Osteocarcoma with fibroblastic features; low mitotic index (3/10hpf) considered histologically low grade. Our worry now is eventual mastastis so we are hoping an early start on chemotherapy will take out any of the cells that have not yet materialised in the scans. She has done so well this far, we expect the same will come of this part of her journey.

The other day I noticed Mya sitting next to Macleod and she was sniffing and giv’n him kisses, he seemed uneasy and shortly backed away from her and sat over by me a few feet away. That PUNCHED a big hole in my heart, they would sit and play with each other all the time, they are inseperable. To see what looked like Macleod being distant towards Mya really took me, I had to grab my mouth and jaw in my hand to keep from losing it. He was 8months old when Mya was born, kenneling with the parents, and they have been kennel mates ever since. We got Macleod a week before Mya was ready to come home, to get used to our place, and they were so happy to see each other. I never even considered how Macleod might react to the whole thing, other than how he’d be without her…  Yesterday I saw Macleod laying on the spot Mya usually goes to when she stays out for a bit, then later they were both sitting side by side there again. A few min. ago I heard a thump, went up to see what-up, and the were all laying in front of the AC unit, Allison said the thump was just Mya laying down. So I got down and had a big snuggle with them both, Mya pretty much rolled over right on my chest. They were kiss’n and sniff’n as usual. I feel waaaaay better now!

  1. She might have smelled like vet hospital? Or he is just still concerned about her? Whatever it was, glad they got over it!
