Chemo 2 complete..maybe

imageSo Bentley went in for his second chemo yesterday happy as a clam. When I picked him up he was still super happy and excited. It was a bit hot out but we walked home from the hospital (about a 15 min walk) it took longer though naturally. I might have given him too many lamb lung treats and a little too much ice cream. (But it was only a few licks) But he did throw up when we were a block from home. He also drank some water pretty fast half way through the walk. His throw up was bubbly and white but I didn’t look much further than that. The oncologist technician said if I didn’t see a capsule than he should still have gotten the chemo. I went back to check the throw up and only saw some lamb lungs. I’m just concerned he threw up the chemo and I couldn’t see it. I wish there was a way I could tell by his behavior. He seems the same, maybe a bit more tired but didn’t throw up again. I hope he still has it in his system!

Other than that he’s doing great as a tripawd and even had his first tripawd swimming session a few days ago and did great!

I can’t tell you how happy I am! Bentley is doing so great only three weeks after surgery and one week after his first chemo treatment. He can now go down the stairs all by himself and up (when I help him with the webmaster harness). He also walks further and without as many treats! He is still stubborn and if he doesn’t want to go a certain way lots of cookies are involved because I can’t pull him to start moving. I was having a tough time myself for a bit and didn’t want to admit it, but now that he’s walking and has his energy back I’m getting use to our new normal. i can’t believe how I thought this wouldn’t have been possible, but I can see Bentley is happy and pain free!!! My new favorite thing he does is sometimes forgets he can’t lift his back leg that he still has and goes into a peeing handstand. He’s going to be a doggy gymnast!
