8 month update

This picture was taken a couple of weekends ago. It was beatiful out and we took a nice hike. Addie is great at posing! That is Pike's Peak behind her.

I feel I am a horrible doggie owner/parent.. it has been a month since my last post!

I sometimes wonder "Am I am getting too lackadaisical with Addie's progress?" But although I don't post as much, I still do cherish every day, and think about how fortunate we are to still have her with us. We give her lots of attention every day, and since I have an Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder, I check her paws and gums literally 6 times per day for temperature and color. I also check for lumps, etc. She is so used to it now. She just looks at me like: 'OK...here we go again.'

She has been doing great. She has had a few more episodes with cold paws, but 1-2 doses of Yunnan seem to help. I did buy some Phosphorous last week as a precaution. I read on one of the Yahoo groups I follow daily that in case of a severe internal bleed, it can help. Hopefully we will never have to find out.

Thanks to everyone who follows Addie's blog and comments on her progress. We truly appreciate everyone's support!

I am so relieved to hear this update. It sounds like you know just how fortunate you are to still have each other. Those of us who have lost our dogs to hemangiosarcoma all hoped to be the exception but it wasn't meant to be. It is wonderful that Addie is and is living such a great life still. Wow. I miss my girl so much still and god, it hurts.

AWESOME!! I was getting worried when I didn't see an update. Thought you were delaying bad news.

I'm so happy she's doing well!! I showed my nephews (twins age 5) all the pictures of all the dogs who had the same thing that my Indiana had. They were sad for everyone. But when they saw the pictures of Addie's surgery, they were shocked!! They said "But I don't think Indie would have been able to do that!!" haha- my thoughts exactly!!

They loved the snow video of Addie and will be happy to know that she is doing well.

As I said before, Indie's in heaven cheering Addie on!! I'm sure of it!!
