Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Today would have been Lupe’s 2 month celebration.  I think about the ups and downs we went through leading up to the surgery and the hope I had (along with Dr. B & Dr. Z) that removal of the bad leg would end her pain and […]

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Trying to remain pawsitive but Lupe seems to be fading.  She is still not eating and seems to be so sleepy that she isn’t really moving.  She is still drinking and will go out to pee 2 or 3 times a day, but still no poop.  […]

Its Monday morning and that means back to work for me.  Luckily my job is flexible enough that I can work from home for the next couple of days. I left Lupe for a few hours yesterday and had my neighbor come check on her. She brought her 5 year old to say hi to Lupe, […]

After almost 15 years, Lupe is now a tripawd!!! I dropped her off with Dr. Z this morning.  The tech came to get her so I kissed her nose, scratched her ear and under her cheek and kissed that cancerous leg good bye.  Dr. Z called shortly after and said that Lupe’s blood work looked […]

Today could be her big day…

June 7th, 2012 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Just got into work having dropped Lupe off at Dr. Z’s.  Signed all the forms for the amputation but not sure if it is still an option.  Dr. Z and I spoke yesterday and she felt that all of Lupe’s symptoms (not eating, lethargy, upset tummy, etc.) are related to the pain and the meds.  […]
