There are some pretty serious cancer treatments out there. Sometimes the patients require a hospital stay. This can be pretty devastating being stuck in a room for days on end and most times these patients are not even allowed flowers due to the seriousness of their condition and treatments.
Here is a delivery of blankets and shawls to cheer up the rooms. The patient knows that somebody cared enough to take the time to knit or crochet them something special and they get to take their gift home with them at the end of their stay!
Henry here with a guest post about my first emergency vet visit.
I am a rescue. They don’t know much about me but my dog Mom was rescued too and she definitely had a lot of Boxer in her.
Human Mom learned that Boxers had a lot of eye issues and when she got home tonite and saw my eye like this she freaked out, threw me in the car and took me to the Emergency Vet! I mean really threw me in the car!!!
Turns out no scratch on my eye, looks like a bug bite, likely a stupid wasp which Monty has taught me to chase and try to eat.
I was sweet until I got suspicious and then was a real stinker and would not let them fit me for something called the cone of shame…
They gave up and gave me a large cone of shame and wished my human Mom good luck with getting it on me 😈.
Roscoe and Monty are excited because the emergency vet prescribed Benadryl for the swelling and they think it’ll make me sleep and pester them less.
The real reason I went to the emergency vet was because I heard human Mom say it was time for me to get something called neutered which sounds horrible. Roscoe and Monty actually have been extra tolerant of me because of neutering in my future. Now Mom says I used my neutering money for an emergency and neutering will be postponed until next month which is my birthday month…. Happy birthday to me?
I was hooked on blood donation decades ago by my dad, we used to donate together until he knew I was truly a blood donation addict.
When I got my cancer diagnosis last year I became ineligible to donate.
I had an oncology appointment yesterday and was released to donate blood again! My oncologist said there were no signs of cancer in my body and it was safe to resume my blood donations.
The donation center has been regularly checking in with me to see if I am eligible to donate again. They love my blood. I am missing an antigen in my blood so my bag gets bright orange sticker tagging it as a special unit. For someone in serious condition missing the same antigen my blood could be a lifesaver for them. Their antibodies could react with incompatible donor blood cells triggering a reaction from the immune system. These transfusion reactions can be lethal.
Muse: A source of inspiration and a guiding spirit.
Today’s Muse is my friend Molly.
You can find us sketching together if we are doing something with her brother Dante and her parents.
She sometimes borrows my sketchbook so I can have some of her artwork with mine.
With my lymphedema and having to wear a compression glove on my drawing hand I’ve had to learn a new way of sketching and Molly has encouraged me to work on it again.
Today she gave me another inspiration for trying to lose a little weight! She told me she had only a cough drop for breakfast. I asked her if that’s how come she was so skinny and she said yes! Yay the cough drop for breakfast diet.
I’ll keep you posted on our sketching and if the cough drop diet really works. The only problem is is we both like hamburgers, onion rings and french fries too. I don’t know if we can stick with the cough drop diet…
