Phoebe is home!

Hooray! Phoebe is home.

But still not out of the woods.

It's going to be a long couple of weeks.

Here's the scoop in a nutshell: She has a mass on her brain. It could be cancer. BUT, it could be an inflammation that is treatable.

The problem is that it's going to take a few weeks to see if she responds to the treatment she just went through (which would mean it's the inflammation and not cancer).

So other than looking pretty scary with a stapled incision and a catheter in her head, she is doing terrific. Alert and hungry. (Three days ago she was practically comatose!)

So I'm dipping my toes back into the universe that is life - and even writing a little today.

It's nice to be back.

Oh - and thank you to everyone who left those nice comments and who sent good vibes out into the universe!

Hi Barb, I'm so glad to hear this! I've been wanting to post a comment about Phoebe. She looks like such a sweetie dog. I hope she will continue to recover.

Sending you all good thoughts and wishes!

So happy to hear this, Barb! I'm sure you feel a whole lot better, just having her back home with you. I'll keep sending those good thoughts her way. ;o)

So glad your dog is better. Pets are like members of the family, they love you no matter what.
