Let me Humor You Post Op Update ~Photos


So we are on LATVH 6 weeks, 3 days, 6 hours & 33 minutes Post Op.  All was going smooth, started getting back into the skate of things.
Slowly walking more each day, still can't get up to 7 miles a day, but we do what we can.  The sun started to shine more and more each day even though I am still on a lot of restrictions.  My problem is as you who know me, I can't sit still and I do not know what the word, "REST" means.......until the 6 WEEK HELLISH SYMPTOMS appeared that NO ONE ever told me about!

One day I am  walking with great pride and started to smell the roses and then I got hit with a ton of bricks of any and all things regarding fatigue, tired, can't find enough energy to cook, shower...you name it.  My only priority was and is to feed my Fluffy Pup and muster enough breath in each step to take him out for his daily business.  At times it gets so bad I just give up and tell him, "Use the guest bathroom if you have to go!"

I sleep all day and all night for days and then one day I would have so much energy I would find myself almost walking one sixteenth of a mile which is great for me.  Eddie would run and I would be flying!  I thought, "Great lets clean the house, vacuum, play in the garden, do some painting and I feel great.  The next day I would find myself back in bed all day and all night which was the case today.  This is the kind of tired that doesn't let you sit on the couch and watch Downton Abbey, but the kind of tired that makes you get your ass back in bed under the covers and sleep all day and all night never answering the door or the phone.
So this is what the past week has been like and still is like.  If you don't hear from me on Social Media it's because I am literally dead tired and sleeping.  Some days I get so cold with the chills even though it is 90' degrees outside.  My handsome fabulous surgeon say's this is all normal as my body is trying to heal and recover from the trauma it went through in surgery.  Items that were listed as scary disappeared the morning before my surgery so that is a miracle in it's self and a sigh of relief, but then during surgery they found scary items that were never detected on any scan and so they were all removed, another miracle they were found and removed. 

So now my life is on hold until I completely recover and have no limitations.  Driving me nuts and I get very cranky and frustrated, but have no choice.  I would give anything right now to be back in Florida walking barefoot in the sand once again holding hands this time with my new Wizard.

There you have it in a nutshell.  I am in a much better place today with a Peace of mind and so much love in my heart and on with Eddie by my side, we are "Pawz On A New Road" and my life has never been better.  I am so blessed and happy for having the best siblings in the world, dear friends and my new friends I have met through my Fruity Tootie Tumor Journey which is no longer a journey I will ever walk I pray.  One last cartoon that sums it all up.
I love you all!

Fluffy Puppies Eddie FIRST BARKBOX Encounter ~VIDEO


I received my first BARKBOX today thanks to my pal Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund. Crusoe and Oakley sent my human a coupon and she couldn't resist. Thanks to Bark & Co as I look forward to receive a BARKBOX every month for the rest of the year! Wet Slobbery kisses from me, Eddie the Fluffy Puppy Belgian Chow.

Human mum also took me to a Doggy Spa today so I am feelin' pretty boojee and handsome.  Mum say's I am her men magnet cuz she gets lots of attention from the human male species when she takes me for walks everyday.  It's a win win situation for both of us!"
"Peeps say I am just the cutest Fluffy Pup!"
"Did you say CHEESE!  Where's the CHEESE?"
"Human Mum says I have a nice butt!"
"My day at the Spa was Heaven!"

MY JOURNEY'S END & the Doctor who Saved My Life ~Photos


Tumor Humor's Journey's End!  
September 2015  April 2, 2016

To my Endless Fans, Family and Friends 


Sorry it has been so long in letting you all know how I have been since my surgery.  It's been 3 weeks and I will sum it all up in several adjectives which includes how I felt about my fabulous surgeon, hospital and overall recovery process thus far.
Caring, kind, excellent nurses, walked a lot, Buns, Gorgeous doctor and male nurses, hospital food great if you know the right person, reunion, great bedside manners, feel the love, shared the love, kept some secrets, shared some secrets, maintenance closet, awesome OR room, fabulous staff from check in to check out, made lots of friends, (call me when your single and I will take you up on your offer), lots of flowers, cards and well wishes, love my brother and sister's, highly recommend Dr. Pena, 3rd week in recovery mode and it's hard to do anything even though the incisions are healed, I over do things and pay for it later, used to walk 7 miles a day, now I am lucky if I can walk 1/2 a mile.  Long healing process and need to learn to ask for help and take time to rest.  (Lost 22 pounds so far)!

Hugs and Love, no more Fruit Basket and feeling reborn with Pawz/Pause on a New Road
