Daisy Doo is doing well after her splenectomy on May 3, 2016

I just thought Daisy Doo was under the weather, doggy flu or something, but when it lasted 2 days, I took her to the vet.  She had a 105 degree F. temp (dog normal is 101, so it's like us having a 102 temp).  At first they thought it was Valley Fever, an Arizona disease contracted from dust/dirt. Chest x-ray and lab work done.  So many people in the Phoenix area come up to Prescott as we are in the cool mountain pines, and they bring the disease on their shoes.  All tests were negative, so the next was an ultrasound of the internal organs.  I small "nodule" was noted on the spleen, so antibiotics and Prednisone started.  She got better after 2 days, then plummeted again with fever and malaise.  Took her in as an emergency, the "nodule" had grown X2, now they used the word tumor, and I freaked out!  Emergency splenectomy, days of antibiotics, steroids, and pain pills.  The pain pills actually are like speed to Daisy, so that was not very good, but eventually she got back to normal....back to silly clown Daisy Doo!  Leia Loo was an excellent bed buddy, except when Daisy had the fever.....Leia kept getting overheated, too! 

Now today, May 21st, she is off all med and her tummy and IV site have wee little hairs re-growing.  All is well here, and soon Daisy and Leia will off on another RV trip with the family!  :0)

Meant to come on and tell Daisy that it will be cooler with the hair off and she is so pretty. Glad to hear she is doing fine and her pal is looking after her so well.

Pam, we are so glad that Daisy Doo is doing so much better, and that she will be ready to RV really soon.  She is lucky you were home with her through all this, and that she was able to have her little nursemaid as a bed buddy.  Oh and tell Daisy no one is laughing at her shaved belly
