The first day at the Vet School


July 6th, 2010

Today was the first day at the Vet School in Columbia. We went in for my appointment at 1:00 PM and I was left there for hours with total strangers. They treated me well but all sorts of things were done to me. I am starting to look like a circus attraction. A large part of my back half has been shaved and a couple of rings around my front legs have been shaved for the IV's. I am starting to look like a Ca-poodle!

 

I received a "CAT" scan (I'm so funny) and they did an ultrasound on my eye to determine what that spot was. They also did a chest X-ray, and all sorts of blood work in preparation of the radiation therapy. I was finally released around 5:00 pm but not before my ransom was paid. I am told I was worth about $1000 today. On Thursday, my radiation therapy starts and they seem to think it will be effective. The doctor who saw me today told me that I was his first Vaccine Associated Sarcoma patient that he had ever seen. Like I said, I am one of the lucky ones.

Here is my new bed. It was meant for Baloo but I confiscated in the name of the realm, my realm. He can sleep on the cold tile floor, it will build character.
