Feeling better...

After 5 days, finally we will be able to sleep on the big bed. Oh-boy! How I missed it!... and my mom too!

I am eating pretty well... pooing not so well. The problem is that I tried very hard to poo and that made my wound to bleed a little. My mom or my grandma apply a spray on it 3 times a day and today looks almost sealed. And now, there is another issue. I don't want to drink simple water! Sooo.... the camomile tea is making the trick. 3 times a day they fill my bowl and I drink it.

Other than that, I guess I am almost my normal self. I want to play with my ball, I want to run around, I want to go up and down from the sofas... but as soon as I try it.... the "No, Lorenza" starts! Hmmm....

The first thing I saw when I came up to my bedroom was a couple of collars that my mom bought for me... and... if they are mine... I can chew them, right??

My mom is still nervous about the result on the mass and she has been trying to be calm. To do so, she is knitting sweaters for me. So far, I have 3 new ones and these yarns are for two more!

We have faith everything will go back to normal pretty soon so we will be blogging again and visiting your blogs too.

Thanks to all our old and new friends for your prayers and good vibes! I promise I will visit you all to say thanks "pawsonally"!

Have a good night

Teddy said...

Oh no, Lorenza, I'm so sorry to hear that you've not been feeling well!

There's nothing worse than having to wait and worry for test results. We'll be keeping our fingers, paws and feathers crossed that the news is good.

Your vet sounds very nice to give you a ride home. I hope he will take the best care of you possible. I know your Mom and grandparents are doing everything they can to make you comfie.

Wow, your mom sure can knit a lot of sweaters!! That's important for the bandages to match your sweaters, so it's good she's making lots of different colors for you :)


PoochesForPeace said...

I was thinking how pretty and cozy your sweaters are, i cant believe your mommy makes them! so crafty. We have faith you will be all better too.
I say if chewing on your collars means you will stay still and not hurt ur healing stuff then its a great idea!

Olive said...

Hi friend... You look great and I am happy that are feeling better :)

Licks to you!


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

OK not to jinx you here but with my first dog (died at age 16- an old age), at about 7, he had a sudden big bleeding(!) lump on his flank. The vet operated and removed it and they were supposed to biopsy it....I was very scared and upset and I waited and waited and waited for the results. The LAB lost the biopsy. They just lost it. A big respected university lab. no results. I was very upset. Nothing bad happened. A YEAR LATER the lab found the results and told me the lump was benign... no cancer. Well, thanks.

Hi, Lorenza -

We are so sorry that we have not visited your blog since before Christmas. Mama and Papa threw my (Hershey's) grandpa a party for his 80th birthday and then two weeks later we were going to New Hampshire for Christmas to spend time with Grammy and Kaci.

While we were in New Hampshire we had no internet access at all. So we had three days of catching up to do.

Anyway, we are glad to read your update that you are recovering from the surgery.

We hope you had a great Christmas!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
