Stewie’s 5th Week As A Tripawd Hero!

Posted by: | August 14, 2017 | 8 Comments |

Feeling like his old self again!

So here we are into Stewie’s fifth week and what a great week it’s been!

The fact that it has been a pretty uneventful week is fantastic!

Last Tuesday, Stewie went in for his blood work, to check on the level of his white blood cells. (the information is a little bit over my head…) Essentially, if there was a major change, we would have to knock back the amount of Carboplatin he will get tomorrow. (Tuesday) His numbers came back the same, so we are going ahead with the full dose tomorrow, being his 2nd round. I’m hoping for minimal side effects, if any, like the last dose.

Most importantly, Stewie was more back to himself this week… He played with his Hedgehog, scrunched his squeaky toys and even had a short game of Tug of War with Dad! Here’s the video below.

It has been a good week in regards to Stewie’s eating habits too. He doesn’t tend to want breakfast anymore, but he hops happily over to eat his lunch & supper. He is quite happy really, because he gets an additional scoop of canned dog food on top of his boring old (good for you) kibble now!

Stewie’s surgical site is healing really well. 1/2 of the scrabbing has come off and the area where he was licking is much improved, especially as his fur gets longer.

I think the best part of the week for me though, was when I arrived home from a day long road trip to the big city. Stewie came running excitedly up the driveway to greet me! That is something we haven’t seen in at least 2 months! How bloody lovely it was to see my boy acting  like his old self assured, handsome buggar that he is!

“I can hear those Squirrels!”

So until next week, keep happily hopping around and all the best to everyone.

Sloppy kisses from Super Stu🐾, Mum, Dad & his feline pack,

p.s. Stewie was sulking when he found out that I wrote his blog this week! 😏 I forgot that I had promised him that it would be his turn again! He won’t let me get away with that one again!

      Thank you Amy and your darling angel Izzy.
      May I start by saying that I feel for your loss of such a beautiful girl and I want you to know that Izzy’s story touched my heart. Thank you for sharing.
      Stewie would like me to tell you that he is going to be directing me in a couple more videos this week, so we shall see what he has in mind…
      Take good care Amy and thank you for your continued support.

    Yeah Stewie!! I was so so happy to read your update and learn that you are doing well. What a sweet boy. I loved the video of Stu playing with his hedgy and am glad his blood work supports continuing chemo. Plus he came to greet you? I know that made you smile.
    What a fun update!
    ❤️ Amy & Rusty

      Thank you Amy & Rusty!
      His 2nd round of chemo was today and he was an excellent boy! Highly anxious, but he didn’t get growly and didn’t move an inch… I was very proud of my boy!
      I discovered from our vet today that his numbers had gone down, but it was still within good range. So we have to go in two weeks for another blood test and see…

    😂 Thanks Sally!
    You do crack me up and that’s a beautiful thing!😘
    I am thrilled at this point in his recovery, he is surprising me around every turn! I can honestly say, I’m a different person from 6 weeks ago… my boy has taught me a few things in this life & im eternally grateful for the lessons!
    Stewie is certainly looking forward to writing his blog next week, he is coming up with the “Top 10 Reasons Why A Dog Should Become A Tripawd!” Even I’m looking forward to seeing that one! 😉😁
    Stewie says 5 claws up for the extra scoop of wet food! 👋
    All the best to you from Stewie🐾, his Hoomans and his feline siblings🐾🐾🐾❤️

    Great week! Hope you sail through that nasty chemo again! Bailey is right behind you. Her blood work was good and she goes Monday for round two.
    Love keeping up with Super Stewie!
