As you might have seen on the forums, I had a ruff weekend – first my Miami Hurricanes lost. That was tough, we were so close to finishing undefeated, but I’m going to fight this cancer so I can watch them win it all next season.
Anyway, after that debacle, I woke up Saturday morning and my owner took me in to the vet since I was bleeding. It didn’t faze me too much, but my pawrents were a little nervous. I liked meeting a bunch of new people.
I spent the rest of the weekend chilling out – it was so nice out, but since I now have staples in again, I have to watch my activity level.
Today everyone had to go back to work/school, so it’s just me and my sister Mojo just hanging out. Anyway, my pawrents can keep their eye on me using their Arlo Q wireless cameras they have setup. They bought 4 of them and have them strategically placed downstairs so they can see me where ever I go downstairs. Most of the time, I’m in the front room looking out the window, waiting for them to come back! lol.
Anyway, I’m not a spokesperson for Arlo, but my pawrents got them on sale at Best Buy for $129/each (regularly priced between 179-199/each). My pawrents say they have a little peace of mind when they have to work.
Here’s another quick pic of me and my sister on Friday before the infection hit.
This will be a quick update – I’m still in early stages of recovery, but the combination of Dr. Loops remedies, new diet and artemisinin has allowed me to have moments where I feel like I used to before my surgery. Here’s a quick video of me enjoying some fresh air!
I’ve had quite the weekend – I got my stitches out on Saturday morning and I am now done with my pain meds. And then last night my favorite team won their biggest game since I’ve been alive! It was great. I was so excited that this morning, I hopped along the fence and barked at the people on the walking path for the first time since before my surgery! My pawrents were so happy that I was barking and protecting the house, they gave me lots of pats today!
I have started my 1/2 raw diet – I get Darwin’s and I wolfed down my morning portions with the quickness! I don’t think I have had any issues with digestion – although my pawrents are taking it easy and only giving me one patty for breakfast. Eventually I will get a patty and a half – can’t wait!
For lunch, I am now getting Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain canned food (it has low carbs and good protein/fat) with some vitamin C, vitamin E and some glucosamine mixed in so I don’t even know it’s there. I scarfed down two cans today for lunch. My pawrents ordered some salmon fish oil so I will start taking that this week too.
I am also in my second week of taking my homeopathic remedies twice a day (thank you Dr. Loops!) and I am also taking artemisinin and butyrex and vitamin D at night time. My pawrents say they will give me some cottage cheese after I take my pills. I don’t like taking pills, but I’ll deal with it, lol.
Talk to you guys later – and Go Canes!
Oh, before I forget, here is a pic of me and my little sister Mojo – we take lots of dog naps while everyone is gone, so that way we have lots of energy when they get home.
My name is Sebastian and I am a Golden Doodle. I got my name from the mascot of my favorite team, the Miami Hurricanes. I live with my twin sister Mojo and we live in Texas. A couple weeks ago I was diaganosed with probable Osteosarcoma. Instead of waiting to do a bone biopsy, my pawrents made the courageous decision to amputate. I was tired/sore/groggy for the first few days, but I’m feeling better now.
Today I got the news that I do have osteosarcoma. It is the chondroblastic-type of osteosarcoma and I was staged at grade 1. We are going the homeopathic route and we are working with a vet in North Carolina that has experience with cases like mine.
I will use this blog to let everyone know how I’m doing. My Miami Hurricanes are doing really great this fall and I’m going to give this my best fight so I can watch as many games as I can.
Thanks for visiting and I will post pictures and updates often!
