Alki is home again

I'm still a bit nervous, but Alki is pretty relaxed - because she's home from the doggie hospital!

I'm so happy to be home - FEED ME!

I'm feeding her small amounts hoping her stomach stays on the mend. She's hungry, and giving me sad eyes, so I guess that's a good sign. Long as she keeps at it.

While at the hospital they did an ultrasound and confirmed there was a large mass around her bladder, which is the cancer. We pretty much knew it was back already. That old bastard is going to get her one way or the other. Thanks to the miracles of modern medicine, and our dedicated veterinarians, she has cheated death for nearly three years since her diagnosis. Even the oncologist says it's an incredible result. Not much to do now but treat any symptoms as they occur, and give her lots of love.

Glad she is home but sorry about the cancer. What a gift to have had three more years with her!! Here is to a happy and uneventful homecoming!
