I just thought we’d give everyone a quick update that Bacchus came home this afternoon. He’s doing great – maybe too great. He’s probably too energetic and enthusiastic for his own good right now. It is terrific to see him acting this lively. We just hope we can keep him calm enough not to disturb his recovery.
He’s supposed to be pretty limited for the next 3 weeks. No walks, no stairs, no fun… I’m not sure how we’re going to survive that long without letting him come upstairs with us at night, or without being able to let him go down into the backyard to do his business, but we’ll find a way.
He’s actually back on kibble (at least some mixed in with his fancy high-fat canned food) already. We need to give him several smaller meals (about 1/3 of what we used to give him, now every 4-6 hours). Looks like we’ll be working meal shifts for the next week or two. The vet said he ate very well last night and earlier today. He just nibbled a little bit once he got home, but that’s been pretty typical behavior after any kenneling or vet visits. Hopefully we’ll see him gobbling down some meals tomorrow.
Still no word on the biopsy results. The Doc thought we would hear tomorrow, but the tech told us not to expect anything until perhaps Monday. So, the waiting game continues. At least for now he seems to be in excellent spirits, and much more comfortable than he’s been for the past couple of weeks.

I am so thrilled to hear he is home. I know he just loves the cone. May the boys continue to be
gentle with Bacchus, and that his recover goes smoothly. Bless all of you. My prayer will continue
as they have been since you told me about him being sick. Love Mom and Grandma

I am so glad to hear of the progress… so far. (…and also happy to realize, my “gut instinct” continues in perfert working order.
… all added to lots of hugs and pats for Bacchus.
I know the boys may not fully understand the significance of “the moment”… but rest assured, Bacchus will be contributing much to their character, as they learn the truly valuable aspects of life itself.
I am so, so glad to hear the good news!
