I’m in love with this new bridgeport! She gained a pound or two since ordering it so she needs to loose that water weight! Lol but other than that it’s beautiful on her and no signs of discomfort coming from peaches! I had a little trouble in the beginning bc I didn’t put it on right which made it really tight on her but I fixed it and it looks FABULOUS on her! Can’t wait to show her off! Lol

Maisy climbing a ladder today!! She recently got back from a board and train with the amazing @affinity.for.dogs! We’ve been working on some confidence boosting as per the trainers instruction so today we learned to climb a ladder!

Okay all my Hero Dogs friends ... if you still need exposure to sculptures, different kinds of stairs and surfaces, and going under, the Sandy Spring Friends Museum has lots to do outdoors - and during the day today we were the only ones there. I kind of sort of thought the solar lights looked like birds on the ground from a distance so don’t let them fool you. (I was good and didn’t pull but looked curious.) Also on a windy day all the flags in the walkway were flapping. I didn’t care about those at all. Bet you can’t guess what was under the glass on the ground ➡️. Not snakes - but you have to really hunt for this exhibit. #sandyspringmuseum#sculpturewalk#sdit#servicedogintrainingpuppy#servicedogintraining#herodogsinc#servicedogsforamericasheroes#clarasthirdlitter
Athena and I went to Ames on Wednesday to see our friends who went to live at college! It was a very good time. We went and got tattoos that were matching. we went to a store that had like 100 different dog treats. Athena did a good job being out for most of the day, there were some points where she got tired and we took a break. I was super proud of her overall :) we will be going back to Ames every couple of weeks to visit our pals because we love them very very much.
Today was big day. I had my evaluation at the mall, where I showed the 4 Paws trainer how good I am. Then I had a play date with my new friend @shoji_4paws at the Wright State service dog park. And then, I went to the doctor’s office with mom! I’m not even tired after all of that!
We went to the mall today. He did prettt good for the most part, but today was definitely an off day. He was still well behaved and listened to commands, but he was sloppy, unfocused, and he walk walking a little far forward than I would have liked.
We also stopped by the pet store so I can get food for my snake and that is something we are going to have to work on. The pet store is definitely his weak point and he needs a lot more practice and training in that type of environment. After all it is a lot for any dog to take in! So it looks like we are going to be going to the pet store more often.
Service dogs and service dogs in training can and will have off days. It is our job as their handler/trainer to accept that they aren’t going to be perfect 24/7. We need to work with the dog that’s in front of us, not the dog when it’s at it’s best. No matter how well trained a dog is they can still have bad days, you just have to work through it and know when they just need to take a break or need a little more encouragement and engagement. Dogs are not robots after all.
i’m feeling like crap as they taper me off of IV meds and fluids so hopefully my GI appt tomorrow will be productive.
a port/line of some sort has been mentioned several times now. the hardest part is just coordinating with my drs that one needs to be placed.
this makes a week total i’ve spent in the hospital the past 10 days, with 2 separate admissions.
i’m hoping to not come to the hospital again until my port is placed! 🤞🏻

i’m back at the emergency room because i was still vomiting and not able to keep anything down (even meds) once i got back home. i was only there for 2 nights.
this time they’re looking at admitting me again and possibly having a picc line administered once in the actual hospital since I am not getting any better.
so much is out of my control right now I just wish I could feel like a usual person

Wanted to give an update of my cancer journey and what’s next, unfortunately I wish there wasn’t a what’s next and just be done but that’s not the case so....
Got all marked up to start radiation treatment on Monday! I finished mapping yesterday (basically they just take a bunch of images, mark you up, and put really tiny permanent tattoo marks so they can find the area to treat) I will be getting radiation to my right breast, neck, and armpit since my cancer had spread into my lymph nodes. I will receive 30 rounds of radiation and will go Monday-Friday for 6 weeks
I’ve finished 5 months of chemo, now about to conquer 6 weeks of radiation!! 💪🏼 BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE 🤪 after radiation I will be on a hormone blocking pill for 5-10 years, I will continue to get a shot in my stomach every month, I will have my reconstruction surgery 6-8 months after radiation along with my port removal surgery. I also will be having a bone density scan next week
