Another Week to Deal With

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Chico is my youngest pup at five years old. He is a strong, loving and good boy. He had a growth in his mouth, and long story short he had surgery last Saturday to remove it along with a good piece of his jaw. It was, and still remains scary. I brought him home on Sunday and we have spent the week trying to get better. He is doing better than I am.

Being a caregiver is difficult. He has a cone on to keep him from pawing at his mouth. Administering medications is tough. I have various syringes and because I am unable to hold his mouth open, more meds wind up on his face than in his mouth. It is frustrating but we are coping. I remove his cone to clean it and when he had his meals.

So next week is much looked forward to. I have a dental procedure on Thursday and then on Saturday Chico and I will go back to see his surgeon and hopefully be able to ditch the cone and get a good biopsy report. Until then, one day at a time.

Sheila, 

I think we hated the cone as much as our creatures did...so I undersand, and it is hard to give medication to our furry babies.  One a day a time, and I would add a glass of champagne at the end of the day...A

I am sorry you are both having to go through this.  You know I feel your pain.  I hope your dental appointment goes well, this next week gets easier with the meds and the report is good.

I guess our pets get some of the same diseases we as humans get. Hopefully your dog will fully recover and you will get to relax just a little.

Hi Sheila- I'm sure that you feel that "this will never end" but it will. Our dogs had those cones several times and it was a lesson in patience. Hang in there and this will pass.

Indeed, one day at a time!  I hope Chico adapts to his cone until it can be safely removed.  I know it's not easy trying to administer meds to a pet. They are very uncooperative because they don't understand.  Being a mom is no easy task.

Chico is so lucky you are his mom.  I know the caretaker role is stressful.  When you have a big scare like that, with a prolonged recovery, it seems to take more of a toll on you than the furry family member.  Just breathe and know you are doing exactly what he needs.
