Day 12: C-Day Delayed

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 7:54 pm on Thursday, September 27, 2012

Friends:  As occurred many decades ago while thousands of brave souls readied to cross the English Channel as part of D-Day had to stand down due to inclement weather, my C-Day had to be delayed because must have picked up the stomach bug that plagued Izzy Lou over the weekend.  The oncologist does not want […]

Day 10: Top 10 Good Things About Being a Tripawd

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 10:12 pm on Monday, September 24, 2012

In honor of my 10th day post-amp, I’ve put together a Top 10 List (Letterman-Style) for the Tripawds Community: 10.  Breakfast in Bed:  My pawrents have been kind enough to bring me breakfast in bed every morning.  I think this may be coming to an end soon as I’m more than capable of eating standing […]

Day Eight: Sarcoma. Boo.

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 8:41 pm on Saturday, September 22, 2012

Well, all, the verdict is in.  My mom talked to Dr. Aiken at Veterinary Specialty Hospital and the biopsy results indicate that my tumor was sarcoma.  Next step, chemo.  It’s an odd case – either I had the sarcoma for years and it didn’t go elsewhere, or it’s a recent development.  I continue to be […]

Day Seven: No news, but staying positive

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 11:43 pm on Friday, September 21, 2012

Hello Friends – No news so far on the tests on my paw pad, unfortunately.  But we’re keeping up those positive thoughts!   I slept through the entire night last night, and even got to snooze on my pawrents bed for a few hours before mom moved me down on to the dog bed on the […]

Day Six: Who needs the fourth leg anyhow?

Filed under: Recovery — tresbeagles at 12:53 am on Friday, September 21, 2012

Hello all – My mom got the camera out today to show everyone my progress, so this will be a visually heavy blog entry (even with its first movie!). First, I’m doing so much better without that bloody patch.  I’m much calmer today, and have slept like a champ.  When Izzy and Henry went to […]

Day Five: Sun, Glorious Sun

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 5:03 am on Thursday, September 20, 2012

I nearly slept through the entire night!  It felt great to get some solid snoozing in.  I only woke my parents up at 5am because I had to go outside to use the restroom.  Mom took me for a few short walks  – one was down the street, around the corner, up the alley, and […]

Day Four: I think I can, I think I can . . .

Filed under: Recovery — tresbeagles at 4:26 am on Wednesday, September 19, 2012

  WB here.  I am starting to feel more like myself as the haze of pain and pain killers are starting to recede.  I only woke my mom and dad up once last night, when the pain got a bit too much.  Mom laid down on the ground next to my dog bed and we snuggled for the […]

Day Three: Sleepy Time for Will Beagle

Filed under: Recovery — tresbeagles at 1:28 am on Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Hi everyone, this is Izzy Bella reporting for my big brother Will Beagle.  We were so happy to have him home last night, but it is clear that he is out of sorts.  His back leg disappeared, but that’s ok because we love him regardless.  The hardest part for us is that we love to […]

Home Sweet Home

Filed under: Recovery,Surgery — tresbeagles at 4:19 am on Monday, September 17, 2012

Hi everyone,  Will Beagle is back in action.  Wow, it’s been quite a weekend.  Mom and Dad took me into the Veterinary Specialty Hospital here in San Diego, California, and met with Dr. Aikin, and he went over all the options.  There was an outside shot that removal of the paw pad might have been […]
