BONNIE’S HOME!!!!!

YAY!!!!!

My bebe is home! 🙂

She looks a little funny (they had to shave part of her front paw for an IV and her belly for the ultrasound.

The ultrasound revealed some thickening in her intestines and that her pancreas is “angry”. The two possible diagnoses? Lymphoma or Pancreatitis. Since she was responding well to her med (Baytril) and eating again (and drinking!) we’re leaning toward Pancreatitis.

Because of this, I got to take her home. And she gets to stay! (unless she backslides…)

She’s been very tired and slept most of the ride home (we won’t even TALK about that cluster f*ck). She showed some interest in eating when we got home, but didn’t touch her food. She did drink quite a bit and let everyone pet her.

Did I mention we missed her…A LOT?

She followed me up to bed and slept with me for a bit, but because Jacob was in my bed and I couldn’t fall asleep right away (read flip flopped all over), she left and went downstairs.

She had eaten by the time I’d gotten up this morning and was eating after I gave her her meds this morning. 🙂

She’s nearly 16. I know I don’t have much time left with her, but I want to enjoy the time we DO have left. So there will be NO surgeries and NO chemotherapy (should cancer be the final outcome of the Pancreatitis). Ideally, I’d like her to live for quite a while, but I’m not that stupid, nor would I want her to suffer, just so I didn’t have to say goodbye.

But for right now, she looks good (albeit a little funny), she’s eating well and we’re all VERY happy. 🙂

Thank you all for the crossed fingers and prayers.

Pictures, as Promised

Yesterday was action-packed, man.

I had an orthodontist appointment during my lunch. I’m up to the “finishing wire” on top and a new wire on bottom. The wire on the bottom is to help pull my teeth up and out (they’re wavy vertically as well as crooked) and the finishing wire is to keep everything straight and pull out my #3’s (canines) up top.

There IS an end in sight…thank the gods!

After work, I grabbed Jacob and we went to go visit Bonnie. She looks good!!!!! She was alert and SO happy to see us! Even Jacob. She and Jacob have a love/hate relationship. He loves her very much and she hates that he wants to be in her face. However, she let him pet her and pet her and pet her and would answer him every time he called her name. 🙂 She went to the West Chester Clinic last night with one of the vet techs so she could have an ultrasound done today. Cross your fingers the ultrasound gives us something to go on. I miss my baby girl and wanna bring her home 😦 (It was REALLY hard for both Jacob and I to leave her yesterday).

Jacob had baseball practice (RIGHT after we visited Bonnie). He had a VERY rough start to practice because he was afraid of the ball (he was afraid he’d get hit in the nose again…and to be honest, so was I!) But, once he got over his fear, he was catching and throwing and actually doing pretty well! He’s MUCH better at fielding grounders than catching pop-ups, but hey, he’s a year behind these kids (couldn’t play last year due to a broken wrist) AND he’s trying. I can’t say he’s trying REALLY hard, but he’s trying.

When it comes to running the bases, he seems to have a natural rhythm going. He’s quick and ALWAYS hits the bags with the proper foot. Don’t know how he manages to do that, because I’d fall.

Once we got home, he needed to finish some homework and my friend, Carl, needed help wtih his Economics homework. 8-} I was going nuts trying to help both of them AND deal with the damn bite marks on Jacob’s body. He looks like he’s being eaten alive by SOMETHING, but what, we don’t know. I think it’s ants and if it is, I’m going to KILL TERMINIX. I’m paying over $400 a year for them to treat my house and yard, there shouldn’t be even ONE FUCKING ANT IN MY HOUSE. x-(

After that, I finally took pictures of the sink piping in my kitchen.

See! Isn’t it pretty????

I just have the dishwasher to hook up and an angle bit to find so I can get the facing panels installed (you can see them on the front of the sink cabinet). They need to be screwed in in the middle, but the sink basin is in the way, so I can’t get a drill or a screw driver in there. :-/

I still have to put everything BACK into the kitchen, put the dining room and living room back in order AND mow the lawn before my mom comes up, so she doesn’t try to do all that while I’m gone…

UGH
