When I called this am the tech was a bit concerned so Rick went over to see Flash. I think talking with Rick and getting a feel for Flash's personality really helped because by 1:30 PST we had received word that Flash is being released tonight!!!!!

 

I also contacted Dr. Couto and am leaving all the chemo info he forwarded with the surgeon and oncologist. Thank you all so, so very much! I'll post more when we get home.

We survived the night. It stormed here last night. Of all nights. Flash is a stormaphobe. He had a very restful night and we've just been out to potty & POOP! I wasn't expecting POOP till tomorrow at least. His incision isn't as bad as I expected. He does have a lot of bruising but all in all not too bad. Now to get him to eat something. We've tried roast beef and chicken so far with no luck. Keep your fingers crossed for today. Thank you all for all the love and support. All of us appreciate it.

So glad he's home and doing well! Could be pain meds and metabolizing anaesthesia are affecting his appetite -- hopefully he'll start eating for you by this evening or tomorrow.

shannon - so glad he is home -- when rivie had her biopsy i bought an arsenal at the grocery trying to find something she would eat -- so far the magic food is chicken breasts that i boil in ck boullion then process a bit in the food processor -- she is snarfing this down!!! she would take her meds in braunschweiger (with the sausage at the grocery) after the first day -- now she is liking wennie since she figured me out :( maybe that will help. i feel such a connection to you with our timing - so glad flash is doing well!!! hugs - teri

Glad he'shome Shannon. Come on now Flash eat something. Try his favourite treats, not as nutritious but something in that belly will help settle it down and then he may eat the real food.

So glad that Flash is home! I'm sure once all the drugs get out of his system, he will feel well enough to start trying a little food. Maybe a Pepcid would help, just in case he's a little queasy? If he won't eat, is he at least drinking a little? I'm sure he was on an IV and was well hydrated during/after surgery. Praying that he perks up soon!

Went to the store and bought a ton of stuff. We gave him a smorgasbord of pieces (friend chicken, roasted chicken, liver)around 9am PST. He showed more interest than ever but no deal. Flipped the paper plate in front of him off his bed in one flip of his nose. He is drinking really well is fabulous and peeing and of course pooped once already. Before his next medication time, we're going to see if we can get him to eat something. Wish us luck. I've already warned hubby we may be up at midnight making meatballs if we can't get him to eat.

Beechnut Stage 1 Beef and Beef Broth is our savior! He ate an entire jar and Rick is off to the store to buy more, and a few other things. Thank goodness. I hope now that he starts getting something in his tummy he'll start trying other things. One step at a time.
