First of all I want to say THANKS from the bottom of my heart for all your love and support. First my mom was crying for me and then she started crying when we read all your lovely comments. Thanks for your good vibes and prayers. We have no words to express how fortunate we are to have you all in our lives.

I was able to come home on wednesday night. My mom was afraid to hurt me so my Vet was very nice and he brought me to my home in his truck.

The nerve of my mom! She took this picture while I was still sleepy.
We have been sleeping on the floor.
I am still peeing with blood but my Vet told my mom not to panic. He said it is normal while my bladder is healing.

I went to the hospital with a pink sweater and the bandage in my paw matches it!
Yesterday morning my mom opened the front door and put a blankie there so I could take some sun.

I spent around 40 hours without food. My Vet changed my kibble. Now I have Prescription Diet Renal Health but I did not want to eat. My mom was worried. Me, who enjoy everything edible not doing it?? Oh-oh... I needed to take my meds too and without food in my tummy.... hmmm... My grandma boiled chicken breast for me and I ate small pieces and I went to sleep again. Half and hour later, I went directly to my food bowl looking for something. My mom gave me a few kibbles and I ate them in a second!

My Vet called to know how I was doing and told my mom to give me camomile tea which I refused to drink. Then my mom had an idea (?)... she put 3 pieces of cooked veggies in it... and I loved it!

And now, there is another issue... I can't poo! My Vet told my mom to give me a little spoon of olive oil but it has not worked! Do you know a good remedy??

My mom is worried too about the mass but at the same time she wants to think positively and hopes it is nothing serious.

We know the Power of the Paw is working for me!

Thanks a lot!

We hoping you get better soon Miss Lorenza. Your pink sweater looks very cute, Mommy wants to know where you got it, she wants one for her rat...I mean dog. Mommy also says that she has heard about the oil trick, but if you haven't eaten anything to wait a little bit before doing so like a day just to let everything get back to normal.

Mango said...

Lorenza! I am so happy to see you home and enjoying the sun. Those medicine kibbles can take a while to get used to, but it is important to eat them

I would not worry about the poo thing yet since you didn't eat for a long time. It takes a while for the foodables to move through you.

Seeing your sweet face and reading your words is just the happiest thing ever.


Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Lorenza, we are so happy you are home - and coordinated!
When Bailey was poorly she couldn't poo - she loves tuna so she had some tuna in oil which helped - she would not have had the oil on its own.
It takes a bit to get back to normal.
We were so happy to see you taking the sun too.
Goodness you couldn't be doing that if you were in Scotland!
Do take care - take things slowly - tell mom to sleep in the bed with you right next to her on the floor.
It is very important that moms don't get too exhausted - they do worry so.
Much love
Martha and Bailey xxxxxxxx

Mack said...

Hey girl!
We are so glad you are back home!!
And I know what gets the poo started - POPCORN! But your vet may not agree! I hope you like punkin!

bbes tribe said...

Lorenza we know your are in VERY good hands & a strong girl. Many pups & their humans are praying for you & keeping paws crossed. Like Mollie Jo & Bobo we love your matching bandage & sweater. Even when you aren't feeling well, you are one styling lady.
PeeEss: We have also heard pumpkin helps to poo. Never tried it though so don't know for sure.

Frankie Furter said...

Oh My Sweet Dawgness... there you are!!! You look Beautiful to my eyes. I know about the olive oil fur the poop shooter. It WILL work. The CANNED pumpkin will work too. My mom gives it to the foods that she cooks from scratch fur me. Your grandma could do it in the Chicken. It is actually very much GOOD fur us to have.
Oh am I ever glad to see you.
Now... don't worry about posting constantly.. just a quick update now and then. We are all soooooo very much worried and want to know how you are.
I want to send you 87 Bazillion of my strong DACHSHUND vibes.. ok?

Stella said...

Hey Lorenza!

I bet it is very good to be home with your family. Just give things a little time. Walk around a little, eat a little, and your system will work good as ever, I bet.

Lots of love (not just a little!) from Stella, Mom and Ali Z.

Petey said...

Oh my dear little muchacha, I had no idea you were feeling so poorly. Glad to see that you are back from the vet and on the mend. Keep turning your nose up at that medical kibble - eventually they'll figure out to add some delicious treats to it. We'll keep our fingers and paws crossed until we hear good news about the biopsy on the mass.

Much love headed your way,

Petey and his Mom

So glad you are home Lorenza. You look gorgeous in your pink jumper. Don't worry about the poo thing. After what you have been through, it may take a few days. No worries, love Carol.

Toby said...

Lorenza, we're so sad to hear you're not feeling well. Mom and I are thinking of you and sending good vibes and hugs.

Mom says pure canned pumpkin helps with the poops so maybe you can ask the vet if you can try that? Make sure to 100% pure pumpkin (not the pie mix kind).

Get better really soon ok?

It is so good to see you back at home darling Lorenza. Even when you are not well you still manage to be stylish!
Forty hours without food, crikey, that is practically a lifetime, bol. But we are happy to see you are eating and on the road to recovery.
When our cat brother was constipated the vet gave us some cod liver oil for him. Just a spoonfull a day and it worked.
Take care of yourself and enjoy being pampered.

oh no, Lorenza, we did not know about this until just now. we are so sorry that you are having problems. we are sending you love and hugs and all of the B power that we can muster. you are our bestest girl pup friend in the entire whole wide world!

we heard that canned pumpkin can help pups go poo. we have never had that problem, so we don't know first paw.

you are such a lucky pup to have a mom who loves you so much to sleep on the floor with you. your mom will always take the best care of you so that you never have to worry. and your friends will be here for you too, with our love and support.

we hope you will recover fast from your surgery and that mass will be nothing! we are pawing for you!

houndstooth said...

Lorenza, it is SO good to see you home and recuperating!

Mom says she has noticed that after any of us hounds have had surgery that usually our apetites aren't too good for a couple of days. She thinks it's the anesthesia, and also that the medicine upsets our tummies a little. She often gives us a tablespoon or so of canned pumpkin (NOT the spiced stuff, the plain stuff) and that often helps poop problems.

We so have our paws crossed for you to keep getting better and to get good news back from the vet!


Eric said...

Sweetie Lorenza, I didn't know you had been sick, I'm so sad and sorry for you and your Mom but wagging you're back home with Mom all snugglied. Your vet sounds as though he is looking after you well Lorenza. Yap to him if he doesn't I'll bite his ankles grrrrr.

Wiry love and get well wishes. Eric and his Mom

Ludo van Doggy said...

oh my dogness Lorenza! I so so sorry I missed sending you power of the paw but you had so much I guess you didn't need mine. Your Mum be being such a good good nurse I know you will make a speedy recovery and I will cross my paws about the lump results. I get constipated sometimes, what works for me be eating some offal, like kidney, liver or tripe, but then I on the raw diet so that not help you I guess!
~lickies, Ludo

Homer said...

Hi Lorenza,

I so sorry that I'm late - I just found out that you are not feeling well. How are you today?

In the past, when I had constipation, the Missus will give me some natural plain yogurt so that I can poop easily and it worked. This method was recommended from my vets. You might want to check with your vet or do a bit of online research. I think a tablespoon a day for you is enough - not too much or else you'll risk getting diarrhea.

I haven't tried pumpkin but I've heard from many dog owners that this method also works.

I hope you get better soon and please let us know how you are getting on. We are thinking of you.


Anonymous said...

OMD Veronica, we had no idea about Lorenza. We are so very sorry that you and Lorenza have to go through this. But we all know that Lorenza is a very strong girl and she has so very many friends to pray her well.

ALL will be GREAT!

Agatha and Archie said...

Darling girl,You look pretty good(and so coordinated) and we know the power of the paw is hard at work.. We agree with everyone else that pumpkin in the way to go(funny it works if you cant poop or if you are pooping too much go figure.. and it is very delicious.. just make sure that when your Mom gets it at the store it is straight pumpkin and not the pumpkin for making pie with( it has LOTS of added sugar...) We are sending you lots of gentle kisses and Archie said to tell you he is working on a special puzzle book for you( but you know him so don't hold your breathe..) Love A+A+PL2

sprinkles said...

I've been reading about you all over blogville and wanted to stop by and say hello.

I used to have a sickly kitty who regularly peed blood. The vets never did really figure it out and he went to several who ran all kinds of tests. He had surgery for kidney stones too.

Anyways, I know you don't want to hear about my cat. I just wanted to say that I can empathize with what you're going through because I've been there myself. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hang in there. Healing is a slow business. Just make sure yo take your meds and eat your foods. And we hope you can figure the "output" issue quickly.

hola lorenza! lamento muchisimo lo que estas pasando,es algo sumamente doloroso y molesto,el remedio que mi mami te aconseja para que puedas hacer caca,es que tu mami te de zapallo hervido ó cocido al horno, eso es muy bueno para los intestinos.Espero que te mejores pronto, te mandamos muchos besos y mucha fuerza desde aqui.
Con cariño Pamela y familia

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

Oh Lorenza....we never poop after surgery, either!!! The last contest we had on our bloggie was "When Will Scruffy 'Splode?" It didn't take that dog long, I'm tellin' ya...the drugs they give you for pain make ya get a bit stopped up, plus your tummy needs some time to wake up after the surgery...

We have the Power of the Paw going strongly here...we all look like pretzels and Mumsie said she was going to dunk us in carob and eat us for Christmas, but she's just pullin' our leggies...

Healing kisses to ya dear Girlie!!

Scruffy, Lacie, Stan and Mumsie

We are so happy to see you home!!! Paws crossed on the mass, but we're so happy to see you home, and resting in the sun! (And we're glad that your vet knows you well enough to make sure your bandage matched your sweater!) As for not pooing? Try pumpkin, or, if you are eating wet food, you Mom might try (ask the vet first, of course) some powered fiber supplement, like Benefiber or non-flavored Metamucil - you won't even know it's there. Keep feeling better little lady - our paws are crossed for you!

We are soooo glad that you are home! Keep feeling better!

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

Hi Lorenza, we came over from Oskar's. We hope you are getting better and pray for your recovery. We have tried pumpkin and it works for constipation. It has to be boiled pumpkin and not the canned ones. It would be better for your mom to check with the vet though. We will have you in our thoughts.

PoochesForPeace said...

i like your sweater, it looks like a nice and cozy thing to wear while you're healing :)

C said...

wow, we know all about pooing.... you may not be pooing because you did not eat for so long, there is a big empty space in your intestine....also, the meds stop your intestines...the pain killers sometimes stop everything for awhile. Lastly, the best thing for poo problems is canned pumpkin (not sweetened). It has lots of fiber and water and vitamin A. It makes hard poo softer and soft poo harder- it just fixes everything. If you like it.

♥MONA + MOMMY TOO♥ said...

Oh Lorenza, we are so glad your home. The pooping will come once you start eating again. Sweet taters are good too. Mommy is saying lots of prayers for you.


Cole said...

I'm so glad that you're home and resting, Lorenza. I agree with everyone else that canned pumpkin will help you poop.

Feel better!

Chef said...

Oh sweet Lorenza. I just found out you have been sick. I'm so sorry to hear this news. Please get better soon.

Summit the Super Mal said...

Woo there Sweet Lorenza~
I've got mi big swappers crossed here in SiberIA for woo. That sunshine sure looks like a comfi way to shake off the sleepi juice from your surgery. Remind your Mom that it's hard to poo if there's no food in the tummi.
Best wishes on a speedi recovery and good news next week.
Your pal,

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We're so glad you are home and recovering. Please tell your mom not to worry about the poo; if you don't eat for 40 hours, you don't need to poo. That's normal. It wouldn't hurt for your mom to add the little bit of olive oil to your food every day for a while, to help "grease the works." Sometimes anesthesia and/or the pain medicine can cause constipation, and it takes a few days for the drugs to completely leave your system.

We just read the other comments [guess we should have done that first]. Boiled pumpkin or the non-pie canned kind should help. Not familiar with plain yogurt as an aid, but it makes sense. You're probably on antibiotics, too, and the yogurt will help replace the good bacteria you need in your gut to help process your food and move it through. If you don't like yogurt, pro-biotics might help.

We hope you feel better real soon! You take it easy, rest in the sun, and concentrate on healing. We all continue to have our paws crossed for your recovery and that your lab test results are good. Merry Christmas, sweetheart!

Lucia said...

Ciao bellissima Lorenza!!

I, Lucia, had an ... er ... potty issue when I had surgery on my leggie and two things helped: canned pumpkin and, when la mia ragazza couldn't find that due to the Great Pumpkin Shortage earlier this year, she used sweet potato baby food. (Note from LMR: the baby food had no sugar or additives -- it was just cooked sweet potato -- Lucia loved it!)

I am so glad you're doing better, dolce ragazza!!!

Tanti baci!

Madi and Mom said...

Mom and I are glad to see you are at home...we feel one heals best in one's own surroundings.

Mom was going to suggest pumpkin but I see that has been suggested. Maybe a stool softener might be helpful. My sis's kitty has to take oneo fo those. Also when under anesthia your organs get sleepy it takes a while for them to wake up. Hugs and love Madi and Mom

Hi Lorenza
We are so glad that you are home. Hope today is better than yesterday for you. Take things one day at a time and every day you will feel better & better.
Brutis our Rainbow Bridge kitty had to have surgery on his bladder because of stones. The stones were white & as hard as teeth with sharp points. The stones were blocking up everything & he couldn't pee. He made it through the surgery & never had another episode. He did have to eat a special food for the rest of his life.
We're are still sending lots of our feel good doxie rayz your way and mom is praying that everthing is ok with your health.
Give your mom a kiss from us.
Love Ruby & Penny

Hi Lorenza. I'm so glad your home and it sounds like your momma and your grandmommy are taking real good care of you. You just relax and let them wait on you hand and paw, okay?

I've been thinking and thinking about you and sending happy wishes and thoughts down to Mexico for you. I sure hope you've been able to feel them.

I hopes everything turns out A-OK and that you get feeling your normal self again real soon!

Wiggles & Wags,

Oh Lorenza! I'm so so happy to hear that you are home! And it sounds like you're making a good recovery, even if it is slow. I am sure everything will work out eventually - your body is probably still getting used to the shock of the surgery.

I am not sure what to suggest for your poo. My humans usually give me olive oil also - or more vegetables but I don't know if you are allowed to eat vegetables now.

Anyway, I hope you will work it out soon!

Just want you to know that we are thinking of you from far away...

Dear Lorenza,
We are glad to have you back. You need to eat to get well and also to get rid of the constipation. You can't poo if you haven't had anything in 40 hours. When I had a problem three years back, I was eating nothing, and I wasn't evening opening my eyes...then these two started feeding me boiled, crushed fish (the boneless type) and I began eating. They fed me every two hours in the beginning because I was eating little...then I began eating more, and in a couple of days I was okay.
Your mom can try giving you some fish paste.

Lots of love and get well soon.
Licks n wags,
Right now not feeling so wise:(

Muchos besitos sanadores Peggy

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Lorenza -

We are soooooo glad that you are home from the hospital. We will still send you lots of healing kisses and paw hugs.

We know you are strong - dachshunds and schnauzers come from Germany so we have to be strong.

We agree with some of the posts that you probably have not had too much to eat so that is why you cannot poo. But we are sure once you get your appetite back you will be better in no time!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

The Animal Doctor said...

YAY! What good newS! We are soooo glad you are back, Lorenza! And we are amazed with your sense of style, not even kidney stones can dampen it hehehe.

Take care girl!

loves, Scarlet

P.S Me think you havent eaten much, hence the absense of poo.

Bella and Ollie said...

We will keep praying for you and your Mom.

Life With Dogs said...

Lorenza, you are too adored to give us scares like this. Could you please take care of business and tell us all that you're back to normal? That's a Christmas wish worth fulfilling. :)

River said...

We have not been blogging this fall but we are here reading. My mom wants you to know that we are praying for you--all us beagles! You are such a wonderful girl. We hope you heal quickly from this.

love & wags,

Pepsi Bum said...

I'm so glad to see your gorgeous self, Miss Lorenza!

Although I haven't been online much, I sure have been keeping my paws crossed for you, and every one else who needs the Pep-vibe!

Get well soon, pretty girl!
I've missed you!


Sunshade said...

OH my Lorenza... I am so sorry I'm coming in so late. Out paws and toes and fingers are crossed for you that the mass is nothing.

Did you have kidney stones or bladder stone? Did they work on your kidneys as well as bladder or only bladder? Was mass on your bladder?

Let us know if you need any help, mum has been reading a lot, and she's experience in kidney related stuff.

Thinking of you pretty gurrrrrl!!

ps. you asked about my homemade jerkies. Mum bought a Nesco dehydrator from Amazon and that's how we make my treats.

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Huskee and Hershey said...

Ohhhhh poor baby... it breaks our heart to see you unwell. We are crossing our paws (and fingers) for good results on the mass.

For doggie constipation, you may want to try boiled pumpkin or bananas... good luck with it!

Sending lots of healing vibes..
