How beautifully hot was it today!? It’s going to be even hotter over the next couple of days too 😍 Today has mostly been spent relaxing in the garden with a bottle of kopparberg and trying to eat chocolate faster than the sun could melt it haha! 😎🍹🍫 I’ve had quite a lot of messages asking for updates on Alaska, so I thought I’d write something here... Unfortunately they STILL haven’t got the results. Apparently, they’re doing lots of different tests to make sure there’s no cancer cells left. I think the fact that they haven’t got back quickly says that they’re struggling to find something? That’s what I keep telling myself anyway. The waiting around is heartbreaking though 💔 Alaska also has an infection in her paw, so she’s on antibiotics and has to continue wearing the bandage and cone, bless her. She’s got vets again tomorrow for them to change bandage ect. She’s literally been getting it changed every 2-3 days, which she HATES. It takes three to hold her down while another does the bandage 🙈 Well anyway, have a great Easter weekend my lovelies! 🐣💛 #goodfriday #easterweekend #sunny #feelinghot #bankholiday #easter #sun #lovethisweather #discoverunder10k #discoverunder100k #me #mylife #mylifestory #mylifestyle #myview #dayinthegarden #lovemydog #mydogismybestfriend
Updates on Alaska!! Firstly, I’d like to thank you all for your supportive messages on my post yesterday and all the private messages 💗
So I picked Alaska up from the vets about an hour ago (she’s been there since 9:15am) The vets have removed her toe where the cancerous tumour was. They did X-rays and lots of other tests. On the X-ray something showed up on her lesion but the vets don’t think it’s anything to worry about. They’re going to do some tests on the toe they removed to make sure that all the cancer cells have been removed. If all the cancer cells haven’t all been removed then a CT scan will be required, otherwise the surgery has been successful.
I don’t want to celebrate too early just in case, but I’m feeling A LOT more positive about this all. I’m so glad to have my baby back home. She’s very sleepy but I’ve given her lots of cuddles and treats 🐾💜
As tears roll down my face and my heart breaks I’m asking you all to please keep Alaska in your prayers.
I’ve had some awful news. I’m not sure how to put what’s happened into words, I think I’m in shock... Alaska started limping a week ago, I assumed she had stood on something so I made her an appointment to see the vets. They found a lump at the bottom of her paw which happened to be a tumour. She’s had lots of tests which the results came back today that the tumour is cancerous.
Tomorrow Alaska needs to spend the day at the vets for them to do X-rays and tests to see if the cancer has spread. I’m praying that the cancer is just in her paw and that will mean she will lose her toe where the tumour is. If it’s spread further she may lose her leg... but there’s a possibility that the cancer has spread beyond her leg and into other parts of her body. If that has happened .. then I don’t know what’s going to happen.
In the 6 years I’ve had Alaska she’s helped me to face my depression and anxiety. She’s the reason I get out of bed each day. She always rests her head on my lap whenever I’m feeling sad or anxious. She’s my best friend. I love her so much. I’m absolutely terrified what’s going to happen to her ..💔 #fuckyoucancer
