Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

Happy new year!

There is not much to update,  which I think is GOOD news! Things are hopping along wonderfully here as we wait for Jill’s January 8th oncology appointment. She just amazes me everyday!  I wanted to say happy new year to everyone  in the tripawds family. You have all been such a tremendous support system for […]

Happy 2-Week Ampuversary Jill!

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 9:10 pm on Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Today is 2 weeks since Jill’s amputation!  I can’t believe how time flies!  Today was also my first day back at work since the surgery and my, did I have some separation anxiety! We celebrated by going out in the snow for a trip to the vet to have her stitches removed…I was not pleased […]

Well it’s been 8 days since Jill’s rear leg amputation and so far (knock wood) all is right with the world….I haven’t really updated much, because it’s been pretty uneventful!…oh and I’ve also been stuck in this position basically since she’s been home: Day 4 at home, Day 7 post surgery was her first day […]

The Kindness of Strangers

I completely forget to mention this in one of my earlier posts – but I just wanted to share this quick story.  I was in the pet store a few days before Jill’s surgery, it’s a local, small pet store, just to give you an idea (not a petco or a large chain).  I came […]

Home Sweet Home

Well.  This is exhausting!  I am so so happy my little baby girl is home, but I refuse to take my eyes off of her.  I got really lucky that I had already had a vacation planned for this week, so I am home with her ALL week 🙂 The first 24 hours, I was […]

Days 2 & 3

Not too much to update as Jill is still at the hospital until tomorrow, but here’s a quick update and a few pictures of my baby girl. Day 2 – Still on the Fentanyl drip, so still feeeeeeelin’ good 😉  I sat with her for about an hour and for most of the time, she […]

Dude…Where’s my leg?

Surgery Day So, today was the big day.  I woke up this morning after a horrible night of sleep, because selfish Jack was screaming for food all night.  I mean, really?  Your little friend is about to lose a limb.  You can fast for 8 hours buddy.  Jill and I had a nice snuggle this […]

Tomorrow’s the big day….

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 4:28 pm on Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Ok…I won’t lie.  I’m mildly freaking out.  Multiple things are going through my mind.  I should tell you, I went through a very bad experience when Jack was neutered.  You know, neutered.  As in “Oh, don’t worry, it’s the simplest procedure they do hundreds of them a day.”  Poor lil guy had a very bad […]

Jill on the Catwalk…

A Shopping we will go! There’s  nothing this gal likes to do more than shop, so when I read that I should get some onesies for Jill to wear after her surgery, I was pretty excited about the idea.  I knew it would give me something to do to keep my mind off the upcoming […]

Jack & Jill….a Love Story

OH BOY MOM I’M FAMOUS!………but where’s my entourage? As soon as I got home last night I showed Jilly her new blog.  She now walks around with a bit of a prima donna attitude as she thinks she is an internet star….but, oh hey mom…didn’t you forget some pictures of someone quite important?  Oops.  I’m […]
