Tribute

November 26th, 2009 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Just a quick blog to post my tribute to Mercy, and of course all of the furkids lost prior and that I’m sure I’ll have the misfortune to part with in the future.  The picture isn’t that great.  This is an hour after I got it. […]

Mercy didn’t make it

November 10th, 2009 · 13 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Without details, because I can’t bring myself to discuss it since it just happened an hour ago, Mercy died in ICU. I just wanted to let everyone know. She just kept getting worse, and crashed. They weren’t able to get her back. When I can bring […]

3rd day postop

November 7th, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We had a bad night last night and this morning.  We kept having the same thing we had at noon yesterday, where we’d try to get up and start screaming and throw ourselves backwards and writhe with no real reason.  I took her to work this morning and put a new fentanyl patch back on […]

2 Days Postop

November 6th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Mercy’s first day certainly went better than expected, and last night was good, too.  The air mattress deflated on us, so I just gave Mercy my pillows and we camped on the floor.  We slept pretty well, waking up at 3am for one of our pills.  This morning she was acting pretty restless, so I […]

Mercy’s Amputation

November 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Yesterday and last night were probably some of the worst moments of my life; talk about anxiety.  Mercy had her surgery yesterday, although it almost got rescheduled… I’m not sure I could have gone through this nightmare twice.  They still got her done for me, though I’m not sure that’s better.  They wouldn’t let me […]

The Ultrasound

October 29th, 2009 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

Monday, I took Mercy’s sutures out of her incision from the mass removal 2 weeks ago.  That felt like an effort in futility – removing sutures from a leg that’s coming off in, now, less than a week.  For whatever reason, it just felt like the routine thing to do, so I did it anyway.  […]

The little things…

October 22nd, 2009 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

When you’re a high anxiety person like myself, it’s the nights that get rough, when the sleep just doesn’t come because your mind just won’t stop racing.  Of course, as of late, the racing thoughts have all been Mercy.  Thoughts about what we’re losing, what we’re gaining.  The worries. Once I made the decision to […]

About us!

October 22nd, 2009 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

I’m just going to borrow my first real blog post from the About section I just typed up, because it’s a good place to start. Hello! I’m Ashley, Mercy’s mom, and I’ll be writing on behalf of her… as a result of her lack of opposable thumbs. And of course she’s too busy running around […]

Hello world!

October 22nd, 2009 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I’m slowly working on figuring out the site since I’m new to it.  I’m working on getting the banner to stop uploading fuzzy, and then I’ll work on more information about our story! In the meantime, Mercy and I are going to take a walk around the block.
