Still smilin’

I just had to change Zeus’ avatar picture to the one of him smiling because that is what life is like now.  He is so very happy and that makes me so very happy.  We still have challenges but overall life is good.

Zeus had his second chemo this past Friday and had the same reaction as the first (one day of lethargy and diarrhea).  Unfortunately, I think he may have fallen while at the vet.  Prior to the appt on Friday his front leg had migrated more toward center and he would literally just bounce along on it.  On Friday he came home walking “harder” on the remaining front leg.  I don’t really know how to describe it.  No crying or anything, it just seems like he is holding that leg differently (farther to the side instead of centered on his chest) as he hops and the hop seems like it is more of an effort for him (harder landing with each hop and more of a head-bob than he had before).  At first, we thought that maybe he was just really tired or weak from the chemo and was having to make more of an effort b/c of energy.  But now his energy seems back to normal but the walk still seems very hard.  I’ve left a msg for the vet, but I’m not sure that they will be able to tell me much.  Hoping he maybe just pulled that muscle a bit.

But, he is still smiling and that is what matters!

    glad number two is in the record books!! sounds like maybe zeus did ‘tweek’ his leg or shoulder. have you tried moist heat on his shoulder and neck? we were so fortunate to have an acupuncture vet near us, gayle loved the needles, and they helped relieve the stress she felt on her spine and remaining front leg from the pounding of the ‘hop, hop, hop’… paws crossed that zeus is back to normal soon!!
